The War on History. The role of the European historian today.

There seems to be no end to the controversies over the European past. From the polemics surrounding the legacies of Nazism and the Holocaust, to the ongoing struggle over Europe’s colonial history, and the impact of the end of the Cold War on international relations, European historians today are faced with a proliferation of civic and political debates that draw on the “lessons” of history.

 But how should European historians respond to these public invocations of history? To what extent do we have a responsibility to contribute to debate? How should we react to the manipulation or politicisation of our work? By bringing together historians of different countries, regions and subfields within European history, our aim is to start a conversation about the place of the historian in today’s fractured political landscape.
