Early Modern Debts: Obligation and Cancellation in European Culture, 1550-1700

Otto-Friedrich-Universität Bamberg, 21-22 September 2017

[More details can be found here: early-modern-debts.space]

Historians, philosophers, economists, scholars of art, literature and theatre have begun to attend more closely to the role of debt in early modern culture. It has become clear that private debt, nebulously conceived as credit, was involved in the production and reproduction of social relations, political ideology, even subjectivity. The history of debt has become an object of serious interdisciplinary interest, but the question of how apparently distinct forms of debt co-developed is often suspended.

In the twelfth century, Hildegard of Bingen uses the life of the Magdalene with the intention of creating her own model. This tradition is intensified among women in the Middle Ages with other European women such as Catherine of Siena or Margery Kempe among many others.

"Animating the Early Modern Stage," ACLA Seminar, July 6-9, 2016, Utrecht This seminar will explore what theater and the performing arts contribute to early modern theories of life, the soul, and autonomy. At a time when European philosophers debated the distinction between material bodies and lively bodies, between organic machines and ensouled beings, artists and performers innovated new techniques for bringing stage objects to life through mechanical or human manipulation. We invite contributions that examine a wide array of techniques for “animation” in theater and the performing arts of the sixteenth through eighteenth centuries, from any national/cultural perspective.
