History, memory and testimony: an analysis of political passions in the twentieth century (XX)

Assuming that there is a catastrophic narrative about the twentieth century, without denying the atrocities of the events of that century, this project intends to question the construction of such narrative. For this purpose, it is used from sources of the genre testimonial in order to reflect not only on the use of gender by contemporary historiography, but also on the use of this documentation to refer to this catastrophic narrative, which opposes the barbarism of the twentieth century to the lights and the civilization of the nineteenth century.
