Crise de l’historicité : un défi pour l’historien

Guest Editors: Christian Delacroix, François Dosse, Rossana Lista

Deadline for an abstract/summary (500 words max) : January 31, 2019

Final deadline (full texte): March 30, 2019

Ne vivons-nous pas une crise d’historicité qui remet fondamentalement en cause les conditions de l’écriture de l’histoire et de l’expérience historique ? Les mutations en cours autour des thématiques suivantes : histoire globale, histoire-monde, histoires connectées, histoires croisées, après et avec les Subaltern et Post-colonial studies, seraient dans cette perspective les nouvelles modalités d’un régime historiographique adapté à notre modernité.

Dans quelle mesure cette crise de l’historicité reconfigure le rapport dialectique propre à l’histoire entre passé-présent-avenir. Les thèmes retenus pour ce numéro nous semblent être des voies d’accès privilégiées pour questionner et mieux comprendre notre expérience actuelle de l’histoire et nous orienter dans le temps.

Dans ce numéro, nous sommes intéressés par des contributions pouvant provenir d'une multiplicité de domaines (éthique, philosophie politique / théorie politique, philosophie sociale, sociologie, théologie) et nous aider à réfléchir à l'histoire et aux problèmes qu'elle pose. Les sujets possibles incluent (mais ne sont pas limités à) :

 

1. A l’occasion de la disparition de Hayden White, que reste-t-il du Linguistic Turn ?

2 . En finir avec l’européocentrisme : une historicité à parts égales ?

3. Le temps comme nouvel horizon ontologique pour l’histoire ?

4. L’histoire peut-elle se passer de la littérature et la littérature peut-elle se passer de l’histoire ?

5. En quoi le souci de réflexivité accompagne chez les historiens une double montée en puissance de l’historiographie et de la subjectivité historienne ?

6. Ce qu’on appelle « la post-vérité » représente-t-elle un nouveau défi pour les historiens ?

We are perhaps experiencing a crisis of historicity which will fundamentally challenge how history and historical experiences are written about. Changes around the themes (concepts, fields, approaches) of global history, world history, connected histories, entangled histories, after and with the Subaltern and Post-Colonial Studies, could thus become the new ways of doing history, more closely in tune with the historiographic regime adapted to our modernity.

How far does this crisis of historicity remodel the dialectical relationship between past, present and future which is specific to History? The topics selected for this issue offer an excellent means of clarifying our current experiences of history.

Contributions from a wide range of potential fields (ethics, political philosophy, political theory, social philosophy, sociology and theology) will help elucidate some of the problems that history poses. A non-exhaustive list of possible topics would include:

1. The Linguistic Turn after the disappearance of Hayden White

2. The end of Eurocentrism : historicity ‘in equal parts’?

3. Time as the new ontological horizon for history

4. Can history and literature exist without each other? (The interconnectedness of history and literature)

5. The role of reflexivity in the growth of historiography and historical subjectivity

6. The challenge of 'post-truth' for historians

 

Author Guidelines

Authors are invited to follow the Author Guidelines in preparing the manuscript for submission. If necessary, the editors will exercise the right to alter/modify manuscripts  in accordance with the stylistic and formal lines of the journal. 

Submission of papers to Critical Hermeneutics is taken to imply that the manuscript is not under consideration by other journals, and that it is not a published work.  

This Journal follows a double-blind refereeing process for each submission. The reviewers' evaluations determine whether a paper will be accepted or rejected in accordance with four criteria: 1) Excellent: the paper does not need any change; 2) Good: the paper needs minor changes; 3) Interesting: the resubmission is recommended after consistent changes and/or revisions; 4) Insufficient: the paper is rejected. 

In case of resubmission (points 2 and 3), the same reviewers will be charged to re-evaluate the paper.

The peer-review process, as the complete editorial workflow, is managed within the Open Journal System (OJS) platform.

 

1. Language

The manuscript can be submitted in one of the following languages: Italian, French, Spanish, German, Portuguese, or English (British or American standard; not the mixture of both). All manuscripts will be submitted (and possibly published) with two abstracts (maximum length of 150 words for each one), one in English (British or American standard) and one in the language of the manuscript. Keywords (from 3 to a maximum of 5) will be indicated accordingly.

Manuscripts with significant grammatical or syntactical mistakes/problems will be immediately discarded without starting the refereeing process.   

 

2. Length of paper 

The length of the paper should not exceed 50000 characters (spaces included). Articles should be typed in 1,5 space, including footnotes and references (placed at the end of the paper).  

 

3. First Page / Title Page

First Page / Title Page is a separated page before the text, which starts with the abstracts. It must include the following information:

-  Title

-  Author(s)'s name(s) and affiliation(s)

-  Telephone number and e-mail address

During the process of refereeing this first page will be separated from the rest. During the double-blind refereeing process the author must not be recognised by the referees. The manuscript and the reference must thus be suitable for blind review.

 

4. Subdivision of the article

It is highly recommended to clearly articulate the paper in numbered and titled paragraphs/sections. Sections should be numbered 1, 2, 3, etc. Internal subsections should be numbered 1.1., 1.2., 1.3., ... 2.1., 2.2., etc. 

 

5. Style

Authors should follow the latest APA style edition (see, www.apastyle.org), which is the editing style followed by CH.  

 

6. References

Authors should arrange the references accordingly with the latest APA style.
