Conference: Premodern Forms of Cultural Appropriation?

11–13 September 2023, Johannisstraße 4 , Room: J101, 48143 Münster

In cooperation with the Department of History and the Institute for Jewish Studies: Developed within the post-colonial debate, the concept of ‘Cultural Appropriation’ has scarcely been applied to pre-colonialist times. The conference looks at instances of potential cultural appropriations in the premodern world, branching from antiquity, over medieval and early modern times in a wide range of transregional and interdisciplinary papers. Here, the conference also discusses the applicability of the concept to those contexts.
