Ort: Kuppelraum, Hochschulstrasse 4

This lecture considers the travels of the Codex Mendoza, a pictorial manuscript about Aztec history, culture, religion, and tributary practices created in Mexico City circa 1541. Drawing from both Mesoamerican and European bookmaking traditions, the Mendoza was a new type of colonial object created through various types of translations. It involved movements from image into word, from Nahuatl into Spanish, from oral narrative into written language, and from indigenous traditions into colonial interpretations. It was set in motion immediately after its creation and continued to move in various ways for centuries. It moved physically, going from Mexico to Paris, London, and Oxford. It later moved across media, from manuscript to print, as authors selected portions to include in their publications. And it moved interpretively, since printed renditions created different versions of the codex based on their selection of pages to reproduce, the varying relations they articulated between images and text, and the conclusions they drew about Amerindian culture. Mobility, this lecture argues, was not a physical accident that befell an object that existed as a stable and immutable entity despite its travels, but rather a series of constitutive acts of translation, selection, and interpretation that produced multiple versions of the object itself.

09.-11.12.15 Internationale Konferenz

Spaces, Places and Times of Solitude in Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe
A Three-Day International and Interdisciplinary Conference
Universität Bern, 9–11 December 2015
Hallerstrasse 6, 205/203 and Foyer

Organized by Christine Göttler, University of Bern, and Karl A. E. Enenkel, Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität, Münster

This conference asks about the construction, imagination and representation of the space of solitude in theology, literature and the sciences as well as the visual and performative arts throughout the late medieval and early modern periods. It addresses, among other themes, the construction of ‘sacred solitude’ by various monastic orders; the literary and visual imagination of coenobitic or communal solitude; and the role of interiority and solitude in reform movements. Are there liturgical time periods specifically associated with solitude such as Lent and Easter? How was the space of prayer conceived of, imagined and represented in the late medieval and early modern European world? Other major questions concern the imagery and different forms of contemptus mundi and the role of early modern cultural criticism, including court criticism. From the 1300s onwards, solitude also became intrinsically connected with the space of aesthetic production (writing, drawing, painting). Topics discussed in the conference include the literary discourses that shaped types of self-fashioning and self-representation and the ways in which they influenced the construction of solitary spaces.
