What Putin's strategy means for Russia

Sanctions on Russia may tip economic stagnation into recession and widen the country's gap with western nations still further. This time Putin seems to be plying an isolationist course without regard for the consequences, writes Maria Lipman. [ more ]

Historein
Share |


Historein means investigating, writing, thinking and even enjoying history.

Historein is a Greek-based but internationally-minded multilingual review of historical studies. It addresses themes related to the construction and function of historical writing and thinking, to the historical formation of social subjects and representations of class, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, race and nation, to the ideologies and discourses that construct and deconstruct evolutions and categories. Historein provides a forum for the development of a broad thematic range of studies with a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective, including the fields of epistemology, social anthropology, sociology, philosophy, literary and cultural studies. In that respect it publishes articles from different intellectual environments and contexts and seeks to provoke dialogue over major methodological and theoretical concerns shared by different disciplines in the fields of social sciences and the humanities. Although the field of Modern Greek studies is the point of departure, Historein does not restrict itself to a specific field of studies, but rather it encourages the study of transnational phenomena and the hybridisation of historiographical traditions.

The first volume of Historein was published in 1999 and contained articles on the relation between history and semiotics, the formation of nationalism and national historiographies, and the relation between science and religion. The second volume was dedicated to the constructions of identities and otherness in Medieval and early Modern Europe with articles by Natalie Zemon Davis, Carlo Ginzburg, Antonis Liakos, Stuart Woolf, Thomas Dandelet and others. The third volume was dedicated to ego-histoire and the relation between historiography and the life of historians with articles by Luisa Passerini, Pierre Nora, John Brewer, Gareth Stedman Jones, Lutz Niethammer, and other. The fourth volume was dedicated to the uses of the past in the present with articles by Hagen Fleischer, Mark Poster, Gregory Paschalides, Ulf Brunnbauer and included also a CD-rom with the proceedings of the conference "Claiming History. Aspects of Contemporary Historical Culture" that Historein had organized. The fifth volume (2005) is dedicated to the study of empires and contains articles by Robert Young, Rebecca Karl, Athena Athanasiou, Margarita Miliori and others. The sixth volume (2006) focuses on the religious identities and conflicts and the seventh (2007) on utopia in history.

At the same time Historein has embarked upon a new project. With the objective to overcome problems of international distribution (especially overseas) and to reach new readers and scholars, Historein will soon be on-line. The Nefeli Publishers encourages and embraces this project, and all the previous volumes of the review with full-text articles will soon be available on the new site. The website of the review is currently under construction, although interested readers may already find the complete volumes 1 and 3 here. Our goal is to fulfil our original intentions when we first began to publish Historein: to be a review written and read by an international community of scholars, a review that transcends intellectual boundaries and national borders.

Britain flouts the European Court of Justice

Civil disobedience for an age of total surveillance
The case of Edward Snowden

http://www.eurozine.com/articles/2014-04-18-scheuerman-en.html
Earlier civil disobedients hinted at our increasingly global condition. Snowden takes it as a given. But, writes William E. Scheuerman, in lieu of an independent global legal system in which Snowden could defend his legal claims, the Obama administration should treat him with clemency. [more]

A finger pointing at the moon

http://www.eurozine.com/articles/2014-01-16-tokarczuk-en.html
Our language is our literary destiny, writes Olga Tokarczuk. And "minority" languages provide a special kind of sanctuary too, inaccessible to the rest of the world. But, there again, language is at its most powerful when it reaches beyond itself and starts to create an alternative world. [more]
