‘Coping with Contemporariness’, written by Henry Rousso, is the first chapter within the ‘Conceptualizing the Contemporary’ section. This essay inquires into the meaning of writing contemporary history and deconstructs its definitional boundaries as a category and practice, decoupling it conceptually from relation terms in order to historicize the field of contemporary history in the French academy.
