Jaume Aurell saurell unav. His main subjects of research are medieval and modern historiography, historians' autobiographies, and Medieval Coronations. His publications include "Theoretical Perspectives on Historians' Autobiographies.
He is currently working on a book on self-coronations, considering its ritual condition, from a historical and anthropological perspective. A study of a number of historians in terms of the role of autobiography as conventional or unconventional history.
Intellectual and cultural history and Autobiographical Theory. Save to Library. Entrevista al historiador Jaume Aurell more. It focuses on the idea that the original ambitious project proposed by the founding editors has led the journal to engage with an essential tension between tradition and innovation, along with another tension — between theory and practice — deliberately generated by its editors. It argues that one of the decisive contributions of the journal has been to encourage historians to innovate and experiment without falling into a sterile utopianism.
This way, historians may come to terms with new ways of representing history via digital platforms without necessarily rejecting the traditional prose-narrative genre. Historiography , Theory of History , and History of Historiography. When we think in terms of the durability of historical texts, some works instantly come to mind: Herodotus's, Thucydides's, and Polybius's war narratives, Plutarch's comparative biographies, Eusebius's ecclesiastical history, Augus-tine's Historians instantly perceive them as durable texts, part of a canon of history and historiog-raphy.
Surrounded as we are by the exaltation of innovation over tradition, and assuming the challenging concept of "writing as historical practice" proposed by the editor of this issue, In this article I examine the conditions that might be considered necessary for historical writing to achieve durability, propose what conditions of creation and reception enabled this longevity, justify why these and other historical texts have the potential for durability, and discuss what practical lessons we might obtain from this inquiry.
I begin by making some distinctions among the three related concepts of durability, the classic, and the canon, and try to establish the specific conditions of the durability of historical texts, focusing on the effect of contemporaneity and the connections between the concepts of durability and the practical past.

He argues that these Catalonian counts and Aragonese kings were attempting to use their role as authors to legitimize their monarchical status, their growing political and economic power, and their aggressive expansionist policies in the Mediterranean.
By analyzing these texts alongside one another, Aurell demonstrates the shifting contexts in which chronicles were conceived, written, and read throughout the Middle Ages. The first study of its kind to make medieval Catalonian writings available to English-speaking audiences, Authoring the Past will be of interest to scholars of history and comparative literature, students of Hispanic and Romance medieval studies, and medievalists who study the chronicle tradition in other languages.

View on press. Theoretical Perspectives on Historians' Autobiographies. From Documentation to Intervention more. Carr wrote, "study the historian before you begin to study the facts. Using a comparative approach to these texts, this book identifies six historical-autobiographical styles: humanistic, biographic, ego-historical, monographic, postmodern, and interventional.
By privileging historians' autobiographies, this book proposes a renewed history of historiography, one that engages the theoretical evolution of the discipline, the way history has been interpreted by historians, and the currents of thought and ideologies that have dominated and influenced its writing in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Rethinking historical genres in the twenty-first century more. In the context of the freedoms inspired by postmodernism and enabled by the development of innovative textual and graphic platforms, new theories of history view genres as flexible living forms that inspire more creative and experimental In the context of the freedoms inspired by postmodernism and enabled by the development of innovative textual and graphic platforms, new theories of history view genres as flexible living forms that inspire more creative and experimental representations of the past.
Creative historical writing is thus challenging conventional genre categorization. New ways of articulating history compete with the traditional model of historical prose. Indeed, the twenty-first century has witnessed a proliferation of new forms of history, including film and documentaries, social media, graphic novels, video games and re-enactments, historical novels and biopics, as well as innovations in first-person narratives such as historical witness, synthetic memories, and travel writing.
Acknowledging the current diversity in theories and practices, and assuming the historicity of historical genres, this introduction engages the reality of historical genres today and explores new directions in historical practice by examining these new forms of representing the past.
Thus, without denying the validity of traditional and conventional forms of history and arguing that these forms remain valid , this themed issue surveys the production of what might be considered new historical genres practised today, focusing in particular on experimental forms.

Aurell Cardona, J. The publication is available. Retail price: EUR 65,00 excl. Because of the excellent international reception of that volume, we continue this historiographical task by collecting in future volumes profiles of other 20th century medievalists. Medievalism has been closely united to national traditions since its beginning, and this book contributes to our understanding of this phenomenon. They actively participated in debates that exceeded strictly academic limits, delving into a wide range of political and cultural issues.
The range of the cultural and geographical origins of the medievalists profiled in this volume — from England, Spain, France, Germany, Russia, Portugal, Romania, Poland, Argentina, Bulgaria, United States, Belgium, Holland, and Turkey —best illustrates the global influence of medievalism in the construction, invention, and consolidation of national traditions.
This focus, which perhaps and apparently contravenes the actual strength of the process of globalisation, is especially fascinating in the field of medievalism, because most of the modern nations — specially those in Europe and Asia — have found their justification, inspiration, and legendary and historical foundations in the Middle Ages.
By reading the lives of these medievalists, we can better understand the development of intellectual history and our notions of developing cultural traditions.
