History Is a Contemporary Literature: Manifesto for the Social Sciences

Recensie(s)

With boldness and lucidity, Ivan Jablonka calls on historians to rethink how they write about the past. In order to devise new modes of knowing, he argues, historians must imagine a creative history that is rigorous and playful, hybrid and self-reflexive, steeped in reason and open to emotion. I cannot think of a more bracing, urgent book about the changing contours of history. -- Stephane Gerson, Director of the Institute of French Studies, New York University Ivan Jablonka's History Is a Contemporary Literature is an ambitious undertaking that would be suitable for undergraduates, graduates, and scholars in history, the social sciences, and literature. Jablonka's approach is intellectually stimulating and well informed, and it touches on a vast array of material in a highly readable and well-formulated manner. -- Dominick LaCapra, Bryce and Edith M. Bowmar Professor of Humanistic Studies, Cornell University Historical scholarship and literary fiction share a trajectory of mutual inspiration that reaches back to antiquity and continued beyond the Early Modern period.... Ivan Jablonka's book makes the important point of bringing this traditional relationship back to mind. He rightly insists that historians should be aware of the common ground they have shared with literary writers and avoid the misconception that reduces literature to fiction.... Much more important is Jablonka's point that contemporary historical scholarship is in need of reform... that the social sciences and history might complete their entry into modernity by catching up on the literary revolution of the novel in the early twentieth century. * H-Soz-Kult *
