Formation of the new research and academic group at the History Department
With pleasure, we inform you, that a new research and academic group associated with Medieval Studies will appear at the St. Petersburg Department of History.
In 2020-2021 the research and academic group
«Languages for Describing the Other in Early Modern Europe: Social Contexts and Repertoires of Interpretation» will work on a project whose main activity is the translation, comparison and discursive analysis of a block of certain sources that shed light on the issues of identifying universal language mechanisms for describing the European “other ” in the Early Modern Time and contextualizing European “ethnographic” knowledge. The RAG will carry out its activities under the direct supervision of A. A Selin. E. A. Khvalkov and F. E. Levin will also coordinate the work of the group.
The research academic group sets the goal of completing following tasks:
- To compare language and content features of individual texts
- To demonstrate the influence of biblical ethnography, medieval political theory, ancient ethnography / political theory on the texts studied and identify common interpretation repertoires
- To identify the social and political contexts behind individual texts and find their similarities or differences.
