Mobility and Space in Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe

Friday 23rd June 2017, University of Oxford

 

The application of spatial paradigms to the study of late medieval and early modern societies is now well underway. In contrast, the so-called ‘mobility turn’ has struggled to find its way from the social sciences to the humanities and, in particular, to disciplines concerned with the study of the past. This conference proposes to bring the two together by exploring how everyday mobility contributed to the shaping of late medieval and early modern spaces, and how spatial frameworks affected the movement of people in pre-modern Europe.

Ever since Max Weber in scientific and philosophical reflection, the idea appeared that the Reformation is not only a historical phenomenon but above all socio-cultural. Associated with it were, among others, individualism, experientialism, modernity, innovation, activism, asceticism in the world, creativity, self-reflection, communitarianism, economy, development of accounting, criticism, capitalism, the culture of writing and printing. It's only a few examples of phenomena and values ​​associated inextricably with the wider Reformation in culture. The very existence of the Reformation bears fruit historically in the concept of tolerance and respect for diversity. The list of themes and values ​​certainly is not limited and closed.

Profane Shakespeare

Perfection, Pollution, and the Truth of Performance

“But no perfection is so absolute,

That some impurity doth not pollute”

Rape of Lucrece, l. 899

 

For its 33rd issue (Spring 2018), the online peer-reviewed journal Etudes Epistémè (www.episteme.revues.org) seeks articles examining Shakespeare’s treatment of the notions of perfection (or “purity”) and pollution (or “impurity”), understood not only along traditional moral and religious lines, but also, more “profanely”, in aesthetic and hermeneutic terms.

 Samuel Johnson wrote in the Rambler: “This one generation is always the scorn and wonder of the other, and the notions of the old and young are like liquor store of different gravity and texture which never can unite” (in Ottaway 2016: 2.35). His comments, from 1750, were connected to the changing perception of ageing as well as the new dynamics and power play developing between members of the ‘new’ and the ‘old’ generations. This is in contrast to the ideal/idealised situation where “intergenerational relations are best characterized as relationships of reciprocity, differently balanced on both sides at different stages of life according to need” (Thane 2000: 12).

Following the theme of this year’s Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, this panel seeks to explore what the forthcoming years of scholarship might hold for early modern studies. The two papers in this panel examine topics of renewed interest that promise to have a renaissance of their own in future years. Grace Ioppolo’s forthcoming collected works of Thomas Heywood promises to usher in a renewed interest in the playwright, and the Map of Early Modern London project’s goal to produce the first complete anthology of the mayoral shows will make these texts accessible to scholars and students in an open access digital format.
