A.   簡介 Introduction (within 500 words, Chinese or English)
  本次研討會試圖挑戰一個舊有的歷史概念,也就是威尼斯共和國自中世紀到近代早期皆處於安定局勢。即使當其他義大利裡的城邦或是其他國家正陷於叛變和暴動的循環,威尼斯卻可安然置身事外。威尼斯共和國的統治菁英深握權力達千年之久,直到1797年法國人入侵開始崩解。威尼斯的國家意象,如拉丁文所指「尊貴之國」(La Serenissima),最先受當地人文主義學者所宣揚,至今仍是歐陸城邦最歷久不衰的奇蹟之一。在歐洲歷史脈絡裡及政治上更廣義的討論看來,威尼斯城邦之運作模式一直是獨一無二。本場關於「威尼斯的不安」之研討會旨在重新探索威尼斯城邦的本質與運作,及其內部之政治活動。
  This conference challenges the idea that the Republic of Venice knew no popular unrest during the late medieval and early modern period. While other Italian and non-Italian states went through cycles of revolts and violent uprisings, Venice alone seemed immune to class struggles. Its ruling elite remained in power for a thousand years, until the French invasion of 1797. The image of Venice as La Serenissima, the most serene republic, was first publicized by Venetian humanists and is still one of the most enduring myths in European history. Within the context of European history and the broader debate about politics from below, Venice thus continues to function as the exception to the rule. This conference on unrest in Venice aims to throw new light of the nature and workings of the Venetian state and Venetian politics.
