The belief of a 'Springtime of ecu Peoples', innovations of a common republic and the attention for the eu measurement of the progressive occasions had a major effect at the principles of 1848. They have been mirrored in songs, pamphlets and political statements. notwithstanding, the meanings of 1848 - its histories and stories - swap over the years and in response to diverse political, local and nationwide contexts. The preliminary idealism used to be quickly changed via nationalist aggressiveness. In so much commemorations, the revolution seemed as a countrywide occasion in the nationwide histories of geographical regions. this attitude in simple terms replaced in 1998, at the celebration of its a hundred and fifty years' anniversary, while historians, poiiticains and the general public rediscovered 1848 as a eu revolution, legitimising the rescue of the geographical region. 1848: a ecu Revolution? analyses the dichotomy among the foreign measurement in the principles of the revolution and the nationalisation of stories in its commemorations over the last one hundred fifty years.

Example text

National historiography integrated the social, cultural, economic and political development of European societies into a framework of national categories. 9 In 1898 Italian moderates and republicans had two separate marches for the commemorations;10 however, the topic of commemoration was still the Italian Risorgimento. 11 In most commemorations we find very few references to the international or European dimension of the revolution. 12 If through its commemorations 1848 became an event of national rather than European history, historians interested in the relationship between history and memory should reconsider 1848 from the perspective of this national–international bipolarism, and analyse both the international consciousness expressed in the ideas of 1848 and the process of nationalization within the commemorations.

37 When historians, social scientists or social and political ‘communities of commemoration’ evaluate 1848 as a positive or a negative development they are viewing the events from their specific political standpoint. However, the politics of 1848 were not only about constitutional and national claims. 38 While the public image of gender was modelled and restrengthened through the revolutionary and especially the parliamentary experience, 1848 also challenged – within a limited space and for a short period of time – traditional gender relations and provoked temporary progress in the emancipation of women.

In consequence, the Paris February Revolution of 1848 appeared a key event in the further European development. 22 Contemporary revolutionary discourse does not only reveal connections with events in France. 23 With regard to the German revolution of 1848, and more specifically the radical movement in the German South-West, one should not underestimate the impact of the constitutional battles in Switzerland:24 ‘Im Hochland fiel der erste Schuß’ recalls one of the famous songs of the revolution by Ferdinand Freiligrath.
