Workshop »Legacies of Conquest: Interconnections and Memories of the Ottoman and Spanish Empires«
Die Veranstaltung findet statt innerhalb des Leibniz-Forschungsverbundes »Wert der Vergangenheit«. “Legacies of Conquest” marks the final workshop in a series that brings together scholars specializing in the Ottoman Empire, colonial Latin America, and Western Europe in order to compare the Ottoman and Spanish imperial expansions during the early modern period and their lasting impact up to the present day. The first workshop focused on narratives surrounding the Fall of Constantinople (1453) and Tenochtitlán (1521), exploring themes of conquest and loss. In the second, discussions centered on how these conquests reshaped the meaning and use of objects from previous civilizations and how these, in turn, shaped post-conquest societies and cultures. This third event aims to explore two crucial aspects that have yet to be addressed: firstly, the interconnections between these two early modern imperial expansions, and secondly, their role within contemporary memory cultures and politics of heritage.
