The Microhistory Network was created as a loose group in January 2007 to bring together historians interested in the theory and practice of microhistory through a homepage with a continuously refreshed bibliography, links to the members’ homepages and other relevant webpages that would give information about conferences, events, the publication of books and articles. The founding members of the Microhistory Network are Mihail Boytsov, Carlo Ginzburg, Marion Gray, Ingar Kaldal, Giovanni Levi, David M. Luebke, Sigurdur Gylfi Magnússon, Sarah Maza, Edward Muir, Matti Peltonen, Guido Ruggiero, David Sabean and István Szijártó. The coordinator of the Microhistory Network is István Szijártó (Eötvös University, Budapest).
|AN ITALIAN JOURNAL OF MICROHISTORY HAS BEEN LAUNCHED
Created by a group of historians, Contesti (“Contexts”) is an attempt to better understand social complexity through the analysis of the oft-hidden relationships and exchanges among people, social groups and institutions. In order to address our aim, the journal aims to reconstitute contextual analyses as defined through explicit and implicit relationships whose relevance can be established. Inspired by micro-history, Contesti intends to investigate the nature and the transformation of social phenomena by putting the accent on the continual interaction between personal choices and political strategies, between economic mechanisms and the circulation of ideas, as well as between cultural systems and individual behavior. The review is open to contributions from all disciplines and is made up of three sections: original research, interviews with researchers, and discussions of literature, cinema and essays. Contesti is published twice a year. (Davide Tabor, Editor of Contesti. Rivista di microstoria) See: www.contestirivista.it
