Seminar in New York on “Global Interdependence and the Crisis of Democracy: Aldo Moro's Vision, George L. Mosse's Interpretation”
The "Seminar “Global Interdependence and the Crisis of Democracy”: Aldo Moro's Vision, George L. Mosse's Interpretation” will take place in New York, on November 10, 2017 (10:00 AM), at the Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò of New York University. The seminar is organized jointly by the Accademia di Studi Storici Aldo Moro, the Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò, the Permanent Mission of Italy at the United Nations, and the George L. Mosse Program in History, with the support of the Fondazione Cariplo and the Direzione Generale Biblioteche e Istituti Culturali of the Italian Ministry of Culture.
The occasion for the seminar is the recent republication in Italy, and the forthcoming publication in English, of historian George L. Mosse’s “Interview on Aldo Moro”, conducted by Alfonso Alfonsi in January 1979. According to Mosse, Moro offered an original approach to the recurrent crises of participation and consensus that parliamentary democracies began to face after World War Two, as mass societies developed and global interdependence increased. Moro, as Mosse put it, strove to “broaden the basis of the system of parliamentary government to take account of the nature of modern mass politics”. The seminar, having a multidisciplinary character, will begin by outlining Aldo Moro’s views on this subject, as Mosse interpreted them. It will then move to a discussion of the new challenges faced today by parliamentary democracies, including the rise of various forms of authoritarian populism.
The seminar will be chaired by Sebastiano Cardi, Permanent Representative of Italy at the United Nations. Welcoming addresses are foreseen by Stefano Albertini (Director, NYU Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò), and Skye Doney (Director, George L. Mosse Program in History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison). Speakers at the roundable will be: Alfonso Alfonsi, President, Accademia di studi storici Aldo Moro; Giuliana Chamedes, University of Wisconsin-Madison; Renato Moro, Università degli Studi Roma Tre; Gabriele Quinti, Director, Knowledge & Innovation; Nadia Urbinati, Columbia University. David Forgacs (New York University) will conclude the initiative.
