Event description
CMEMS Conference (Beyond) Otherness 2021

About this event

On 21-22 June 2021, Students of the Research Master Classical, Medieval and Early Modern Studies (CMEMS) will be hosting the '(Beyond) Otherness' Conference

The conference will feature keynote lectures by dr. Susan Yi Sencindiver, research and teaching positions at the School of Communication and Culture, Aarhus University, Denmark and dr. Rebecca Merkelbach, post-doc position at Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen, Germany.

This year’s topic of the18th annual CMEMS Conference is otherness (the state of being other or different). This concept is traditionally used to capture the binary opposition between self and other. Recently, however, scholars moved beyond this traditional approach to instead focus on the space in-between the binaries, placing more emphasis on the interrelation between the self and other. We will explore the use of otherness and the potential benefits of moving beyond the traditional approach for the study of premodern history. During this multidisciplinary conference, speakers with various expertises will present their premodern case studies of otherness, particularly with regard to translating the other, creating and using otherness, the other in space and place, and non-human others.

The conference will take place online via Zoom platform. Registered attendees will receive an email notification 24 hours prior to the conference with the link to join the event.
