Session 919: Re-Using Material: Cultural Historical Perspectives - A Round Table Discussion

Tuesday 2 July 2019, 19.00-20.00

Sponsor:International Society for Cultural History (ISCH)
Organiser:Cathleen Sarti, Historisches Seminar, Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz
Moderator/Chair:Cathleen Sarti, Historisches Seminar, Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz

This round table discussion is the conclusion to two panels on Re-Using Material in which the re-use, re-interpretation, and re-contextualisation of raw materials as well as of objects were discussed, particularly under a cultural historical perspective. This round table puts a more theoretical and methodological spin on it, and discusses the process of re-using in a more comparative way based on the work of the participants on spolia, architecture, and viking ships, as well as books and book fragments.

Participants include Sara Ellis Nilsson (Malmö University), Jasmin Lukkari (University of Helsinki), Ecaterina Gabriela Lung (Universitatea din Bucureşti), and Åslaug Ommundsen (Universitetet i Bergen).
