European Ego-histoires: Historiography and the Self, 1970-2000
The third issue of Historein: A Review of the Past and Other Stories has just been released. It is devoted to "European Ego-histoires: Historiography and the Self, 1970-2000", and guest edited by Luisa Passerini and Alexander C.T. Geppert. The issue thematizes the relationship between the historian and the writing of history, illuminating the conditions that have shaped present historiography. Eight prominent contemporary European historians “became historians of their own history,” and their contributions shed light on personal experiences, life-choices and political involvements, as they reflect on the intellectual adventures and professional trajectories that influenced their historiographical production.
Historein is an annual historical review published in Athens by Nefeli Publications and distributed internationally.
