HEC Colloquium

Inquiring on the way early modern societies defined their members and fixed their boundaries, this paper would argue that it was not until the nineteenth perhaps even the twentieth century that our current perceptions of citizenship and territory came into being. Fossilizing situations that were in the past extremely volatile and in constant modifications, these perceptions involved remembering some things while forgetting many others.
