Abstract [en]

After its inauguration in 2000, the Oresund bridge has allowed major mobility and flow of manpower, goods, and services between Sweden and Denmark. Was this the vision that Danes and Swedes have imagined over the past century and a half, when thinking of a bridge over the Sound? And, if so, why did it take more than one hundred years in order to start the construction of the øresundsförbindelsen? The aim of this article is to inquire how linking the two shores of the Sound, from being in the nineteenth century an idea of literates and politicians, was progressively filtered through a system of innovation to which actors and suprain-dividual social structures contributed. The study examines the political and economic ideas of the actors that have imagined the consequences of linking the two shores of the Sound: entrepreneurs, politicians, engineers, intellectuals, Swedish and Danish institutions, and the bilateral commissions. Contextualizing the idea of the link in the Swedish and Danish political history, the study offers an understanding of why the Oresund bridge has been finalized only at the end of the twentieth century. The study is based on published and unpublished sources conserved in several Swedish and Danish archives and libraries.

Abstract [en]

In 1990, the Institute for Historical and Socio-Political Studies of the Central Committee of the Romanian Communist Party was closed, since the Party was dissolved by the Romanian Revolution. Similar institutions had existed in all countries belonging to the Soviet bloc. This Institute was founded in 1951 under the name of the Party History Institute, and modelled on the Marx-Lenin-Engels Institute in Moscow. Since then, it served the Communist Party in producing thousands of books and journals on the history of the Party and of Romania, following Party orders. Previous research has portrayed the Institute as a loyal executioner of the Party’s will, negating the agency of its history-writers in influencing the duties of the Institute. However, the recent opening of the Institute’s archive has shown that a number of internal and previously obscured dynamics impacted on its activities. This book is dedicated to the study of the Party History Institute, of the history-writers employed there, and of the narratives they produced. By studying the history-writers and their host institution, this study re-contextualizes the historiography produced under Communist rule by analysing the actual conditions under which it was written: the interrelation between dynamics of control and the struggle for resources, power and positions play a fundamental role in this history. This is the first scholarly inquiry about a highly controversial institute that struggled in order to follow the constantly shifting Party narrative canon, while competing formaterial resources with rival Party and academic institutions. The main actors in this study are the history-writers: Party veterans, young propagandists and educated historians, in conflicting networks and groups, struggled in order to gain access to the limited resources and positions provided by the Party, and in order to survive the political changes imposed by the leadership. By doing so they succeed, on many occasions, to influence the activities of the Institute.
