Colloquium: Meaningful Memories
15 April 2020|
1483-312 IMC Meeting Room
Due to the present public health crisis the colloquium has been cancelled. We hope to hold it at a later date. The planned publication on the same topic will, however, go ahead.
The Danish Forum for Renaissance Studies and the
Cultural Encounter project, Carlsberg Foundation,
invite you to join us for the colloquium Meaningful
Drawing on themes from cultural memory studies we will
explore how memory as a concept can be used to shed
light on the tension field between canon and archives
in the Early Modern period. We will study the tension
between the actual use of texts, practices and models,
and the potential of the full body of material in existence.
In doing so, we will discuss memory as passive or active
praxis; the relationship between sources and contexts of
interpretation - especially how selection, interpretation,
presentation and preservation affect this relationship;
and memory as including or excluding praxis.
Detail of: Claude Mellan (after Simon Vouet), Allegory on the faculties of the soul (1625).
