The projects

Representations of the past in every period

This theme focuses on ancient historiographies, comparative studies of representation, historiographies of memory, and heritage institutions’ uses of memory, policies of commemoration, and the underlying motivations. Bringing together art history, archeology, history, philology, translation, and the history and sociology of memory, the research projects on this theme produce comparative and transversal perspectives between different eras, e.g., Antiquity and Modern period, or between different spaces at a given period.
