Thresholds of Knowledge Upcoming Events
Posted 31 March 2021
15-16 April 2021
International workshop: ‘Mediating Otherness: Encounters across Time and Space’
Co-organised by Giacomo Savani with Nolwenn Corriou, Université Paris I Panthéon Sorbonne.
You can sign up here.
The synthesis and selection of narratives and traditions made by writers will also be addressed, raising broader questions concerning both the role of travel books in constructing and disseminating knowledge and the audience these works were targeting. The didactic dimension of the travelogues will be considered alongside the various frameworks (scientific, religious, antiquarian) that shaped both the depiction and the interpretation of Otherness.
