Prof. Dr. Paolo Pombeni (Italian-German Historical Institute in Trent; University of Bologna )

What do we mean by "historical transition"? Escaping from the trap of considering every development in history as a "transition", the presentation reflects on the problem of which ages could be understood as really bearing the meaning of being in a certain sense pivotal. The focus is on the question of defining a "modern age", which implies two different problems: 1) what does "modernity" mean; 2) which temporal extension do we assume proper for the age shaped by modernity.

Um 18 Uhr c.t. im Hörsaal des MPIeR
