Dates:
  • Wed 21 Nov 2018 14.30 - 16.30
  Add to Calendar 2018-11-21 14:30 2018-11-21 16:30 Europe/Paris Microhistory and Fascism: Everyday Life and Violence in the Post-War Period

In the framework of the HEC Department Colloquium

This paper, based around ongoing research, will first look to explore some methodological, theoretical and historiographical issues around the study of fascism (more specifically, Italian fascism) and the concepts of everyday life and micro-history. I will then discuss the use of the label ‘civil war’ as applied to the 1918-1922 period in Italy. Finally, I will introduce some archival material recently consulted in Florence and suggest some ways in which this material illuminates or changes current understandings about post-war violence in Italy and how it could be utilised for further historical research an enquiry. This is an open-ended discussion paper of a project which is just beginning and is aimed at provoking discussion rather than providing any definitive answers.
