Событие и время в европейской исторической культуре XVI – начала XX века
The categories “event” and “time” inseparably connected with each other have acquired a high epistemological status in the context of updating historical science at the turn of the 20th–21st cс. and the deployment of memorial paradigm. Based on theoretical innovations in the interdisciplinary field of memory studies and new approaches to the study of cultures of perception, reconstruction and use of the past, the authors of the book focused on ways and forms of conceptualizing the event, taking into account its temporal dimensions and on various practices of rethinking of historical experience of “significant events”. The mechanisms of formation of “places of memory”, the transformation of images of key events into cultural-historical symbols, their role and functions in strategies for building na-tional history and national-state identity are considered in the long term and in different socio-cultural contexts through the prism concepts of historical culture.
The images of the" origins " of Poland and the partitions of Poland as the key events of the Polish historical grand narrative are analyzed in the Chapter. The functions of different historiographical versions of these events in the national memory and the models of national identity with which these images are connected are considered.
