Concepta Research Seminar: Historical argumentation (Geneva, December 5-6, 2013)

5-6 December 2013, University of Geneva (Switzerland).

Politics of Memory, Uses and Abuses of History, Instrumentalization of the Past: these are some of the numerous ways of designating a fascinating phenomenon, namely the use of elements of the past in political discourses and for political purposes. From time immemorial, political actors have tried to influence their fellow citizens by evoking past role models, examples as well as counter-examples. This was, in fact, the most important justification of historical studies per se and it persisted beyond and despite their becoming a true academic discipline during the 19th century.

Rethinking the Political and the History of Politics in Chile: Languages, Discourses and Practices of Power

October 9-10, 2013

The National Archive of Chile

Salón Ricardo Donoso

Santiago, Chile

2013 in Chile will combine the end of the celebrations of the bicentenary since Independence with the commemoration of the fortieth anniversary of the coup d’etat which ushered in a bureaucratic authoritarian dictatorship. This invites us to rethink the future of the Chilean Republic and the different processes of transformation that have moulded its political history. The intellectual debate surrounding the historical and political problems of this latter period left us with a series of important academic publications that appeared between the years of political repression and the plebiscite of 1988. Paradoxically, after the return of democracy, the critical spirit of that intellectual exercise became diluted by party political conflicts and special interests, exposing the tensions in the controversial “political transition”.
