Workshop »Post-Conquest Materiality: Objects in the Histories of the Ottoman and Spanish Expansions«
Die Veranstaltung findet statt innerhalb des Leibniz-Forschungsverbundes »Wert der Vergangenheit«. This workshop brings together scholars of the Ottoman Empire, colonial Latin America, and Western Europe to discuss how the Ottoman and Spanish conquests changed the meaning and use of objects of previous civilizations and how, in turn, these objects shaped post-conquest societies and cultures. It is the second of three events in a series of workshops, which explore the similarities, differences, and connections between the Ottoman and Spanish histories of expansion in the early modern period as well as their lasting memories until today. Our first meeting last spring focused on narratives of conquest and loss after the conquests of Constantinople (1453) and Tenochtitlán (1521).
