 IMAGE . NARRATION . CONTEXT -VISUAL NARRATIVES IN THE CULTURES AND SOCIETIES OF THE OLD WORLD

March 18-21, FRIAS, Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg

 

Narratives constitute fundamental components in the production of social meaning and identity. They are developed and articulated not only in oral and literal forms of expression, but also in images and artefacts. By virtue of their materiality, these narratives take place in specific contexts of, for instance, observation, use, veneration and destruction. How do these images and artefacts perform narration? Where are the social loci of their observation? How do these contexts – social practices, religious rituals, demonstrations of political power – interact with, and re-affect the images/artefacts in question? These questions and the complex network of visual media, narratives and social contexts constitute the central agenda of the conference. Special emphasis is given to early cultures of the Old World, ranging from Mesopotamia and Egypt through Classical and Late Antiquity including European Prehistory. Approaches from various fields of the cultural studies, including philosophy, literary theory and art history will complement the case studies both from archaeology and extra-European and contemporary cultures, thereby putting their findings into a broader methodological framework.
