Abstract

Including contributions from leading scholars in the field from both Australia and North America, this collection explores diverse approaches to writing the lives of historians and ways of assessing the importance of doing so. Beginning with the writing of autobiographies by historians, the volume then turns to biographical studies, both of historians whose writings were in some sense nation-defining and those who may be regarded as having had a major influence on defining the discipline of history. The final section explores elements of collective biography, linking these to the formation of historical networks. A concluding essay by Barbara Caine offers a critical appraisal of the study of historians’ biographies and autobiographies to date, and maps out likely new directions for future work.

Abstract

This volume charts the history of the discipline through twenty-five in-depth conversations with historians whose work has shaped the field of world history in fundamental ways. These conversations, which took place over a period of twenty years for the world history journal Itinerario, cover these historians’ lives, work, and views of the academy in general and the field of world history in particular. An extensive introduction distills the most important developments in the field from these conversations, and sheds light on what these historians have in common, as well as — perhaps more importantly — what separates them.

Abstract

Global history has long become an established field of research. At the 11th conference of the working group on the Early Modern Period (Historians’ Association, Germany), participants aimed at applying global-history approaches not only to distant world regions, but especially to early modern Europe. “Europe” has consistently been both a subject to and a concept of negotiation processes, which hardly kept to territorial borders or clear-cut, topographically or language-bounded areas. The conference proceedings open up new views on geographical and historical imaginations of Europe from within and without, on claims of identity and alterity as well as on the mutability of periphery-centre relations. Moreover, they display the wide range of – internationally well-connected – historical research on the early modern period in Germany.

Abstract

Scholars at War is the first scholarly publication to examine the effect World War II had on the careers of Australasian social scientists. It links a group of scholars through geography, transnational, national and personal scholarly networks, and shared intellectual traditions, explores their use, and contextualizes their experiences and contributions within wider examinations of the role of intellectuals in war. Scholars at War is structured around historical portraits of individual Australasian social scientists. They are not a tight group; rather a cohort of scholars serendipitously involved in and affected by war who share a point of origin. Analyzing practitioners of the social sciences during war brings to the fore specific networks, beliefs and institutions that transcend politically defined spaces. Individual lives help us to make sense of the historical process, helping us illuminate particular events and the larger cultural, social and even political processes of a moment in time. Contributors include Peter Hempenstall, JD Legge, Jock Phillips, John Pomeroy, Cassandra Pybus, David Wetherell, Janet Wilson.

Abstract

The anthology contains 15 elaborate historical scientific portraits of Austrian historians written by 16 historians from Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic. It conceptually follows the first volume distributed in 2008 which contained 18 portraits most positively reviewed by 15 experts until today. The presented historians had been born in the Habsburg monarchy owning or receiving the Austrian nationality after 1918 and went through their decisive mode of activity between 1900 and 1945. There are two historians of art and one orientalist amongst them. In science or other fields they left traces so that the analysis of their biographies brought new scientific historical results. The chosen period of time enters the work of three generations of historians subdivided into the "generation of the youth of war", the "generation of the front lines" and the "precedent generation". At the same time corresponding with an also internationally observed period of the Austrian historical research verified by the following names of the portrayed historians such as Michael Tangl, Max Dvořák, Hugo Dantsch, Heinrich von Srbik oder Karl Lechner. The portrayed historians had been taken despite of their innovative or controversial historical field of work. The portraits cover the most important biographical data even exceeding it since the authors analyzed material from the archives in order to show socio biographical facts. The research work at the archives supports the request of memberships in scientific and political parties and activities in scholarship and research. In addition to that political views and activities and structures of scientific networking were able to be verified. That also shows that in certain student circles and networks above all by the University of Vienna and especially at the Institut für Österreichische Geschichtsforschung, a special Austrian (and also international) scientific component, existed. A central point is the scientific historical implementation of the oeuvre of the portrayed historians. It shows how the works are influenced by the authors impetus received from different sides and how they again effected other historians. The characteristic of time of the writings, their positions and dependence of the present at that time had been brought out clearly. The change of perspective or paradigm due to "external" influences such as the defeat of the war in 1918 or the "annexation" in 1938 is apparent looking at several portrayed historians as well as the sense of resistance by the others. To take up differently the political moment of the portrayed historians in their life and work had been a committed debate above all since the majority of the portrayed historians had taken their political views seriously. All in all the published edition offers a further critical, biographical oriented scientific historical (part of the) profile of the Austrian science of history from 1900-1945.

Abstract

Flight during times of persecution has a long and fraught history in early Christianity. In the third century, bishops who fled were cowards or, worse yet, heretics. On the face of it, it meant denial of Christ and thus betrayal of the faith and its community. But, by the fourth century, the terms of persecution changed as Christianity became the favored cult of the Roman Empire. Prominent Christians who fled and hence survived became founders and influencers of Christianity over time. Bishops in Flight examines the various ways these episcopal leaders both appealed to and altered the discourse of Christian flight to defend their status as purveyors of Christian truth even when their exiles appeared to condemn them. It illuminates how profoundly Christian authors deployed theological discourse and the rhetoric of heresy to respond to the phenomenal political instability of the fourth and fifth centuries.

Abstract

The collection of thirty-five essays presented here examines the links forged through the ages between the realm of law and the expressions of the humanistic culture. The essays are organized into sections of ten chapters based around ten different themes. Two main perspectives emerged: in some articles the topic relates to the conventional approach of ‘law and/in humanities’ (iconography, literature, architecture, cinema, music), other articles are about more traditional connections between fields of knowledge (in particular, philosophy, political experiences, didactics). The variety of authorial nationalities gives the collection a multicultural character and the historiographical interpretation is the element that unites the collection, with a breadth of the chronological period goes from antiquity to the contemporary age. This project is the result of discussions that took place during the XXIII Forum of the Association of Young Legal Historians held in Naples in the spring of 2017.
