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.

Ecology in the Particular

Organizer: Christopher Walker

Co-Organizer: Ruoji Tang

Contemporary environmental criticism has embraced the ecological as an occasion for thinking interconnectedness at ever-increasing spatial and temporal scales. This trend in ecological thinking has been aided by justifiably popular concepts such as planetary action, geological time, and of course, the Anthropocene. Without denying the urgency of planetary thinking, we propose to investigate ecology in “the particular.”
