Nations and Europe: parallel memories

Nations and Europe: parallel memories

The research program will aim to analyse the relationship between national sentiment and the idea of ​​Europe from the late eighteenth century. From the period of European revolutions, which opened the Nineteenth century, to the “Europe of Maastricht”, a both conflicting and complementary dialogue continued between supporters of a national identity and those who advocated a common destiny for the peoples of Europe. The objective of this research is to identify the political forces, economic circles, lines of thought, personalities, cultural backgrounds, that have been the source of these debates and to identify turning points, periods of stabilization, crises, conflicts, all of which have profoundly redefined the “game of mirrors” between nations and Europe. The aim of this work is also to understand how a memory of nations and a memory of Europe developed, how they have become different, how different memories of regions have been created, even within individual European nations, and finally to analyse the evolution of relations between the different memories on the political scene. This program will involve researchers from several European countries: France, Italy, Great Britain, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, Hungary, and Belgium.
