Principal Investigator: Prof. Luisa Passerini

Luisa Passerini’s research has followed several major themes, which form connecting threads through various fields. She has studied the history of the subjects of social and cultural change, from the African liberation movements to the movements of workers, students, and women in our century. In this research she has largely used memory in its oral form, as expressed through interviews and testimonies, for constructing a history of Fascism under a new perspective as well as a history of gender and generation identities. Memory, understood in a large sense as an epoch’s heritage of the past in its various forms, has been the object of her writings on the methodology of history and on the relationships between history and the social sciences. In the field of methodology, she has devoted particular attention to the links between sources, objects and methods, and to the interpretation of sources for a history of subjectivity.
