FORUM FOR RENAISSANCE STUDIES

Colloquium: Meaningful Memories
15 April 2020
12:30-18:00
Aarhus University
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 Memories.

Mellan_Vouet_Allegory

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).

The colloquium will be held in English.
The colloquium is generously funded by The Carlsberg Foundation.
