CfP: Telling a Different Story: Non-Linear Narratives in Early Modern History

CfP: Telling a Different Story: Non-Linear Narratives in Early Modern History

19-20 March 2020, ICUB – University of Bucharest

The workshop at the ICUB – University of Bucharest is intended for scholars from different fields of early modern studies, who want to explore alternative paths in the narration of early modern culture. Rather than proceeding along well-trodden paths, non-linear narratives aim to shed new focus on the less well-known corners, and move in the more ‘secluded’ regions of the past. When applied to the writing of history, the idea of non-linear narratives invites, on the one hand, to deliberate the theoretical nature of narrative structures and temporalities; on the other hand, it raises practical questions on how to employ non-linear narratives in historical writings and find alternatives to ‘genealogical’ writings that track the lineages of new, ideas, practices, and institutions.

Invited Speakers: Francesco Barreca (Museo Galileo), Dominique Brancher (Basel University), Sabrina Ebbersmeyer (Copenhagen University), Christiane Frey (Humboldt University Berlin), Christia Mercer (Columbia University), Iolanda Ventura (University of Bologna).

Submission Deadline: 15 December 2019

Organisers: Fabrizio Baldassarri & Matthias Roick
