Cultural Variation: A Workshop on Historical Methodology

29.–30. Oktober 2014

 

Only seldom do the objects of cultural history manifest themselves as single instances; more commonly, they are surrounded by preparatory sketches and belated imitations, copies, rewritings, reversals, forgeries, transformations, parodies ... This workshop will aim at bringing together some of the many disciplines that study this state of affairs: from archeologists (who, among other things, try to reconstruct series of analogous artifacts) to anthropologists (routinely confronted by endless transformations of a basic mythical narrative); from “attributionist” art historians (treading carefully between masterpieces and croste), to philologists and editors (who must adjudicate among sources at odds with each other), and to literary and cultural historians.
