Workshop “Literature and History” 2013 – “Revolts and Backwardness”


Kulturwissenschaftliches Kolleg Konstanz (Bischofsvilla)

Our research group on “Early Modern Revolts as Communicative Events” was constituted in mid-September 2013. It is situated in the framework of the Cluster of Excellence “Cultural foundations of integration” at Konstanz University. On October 1st Marcus Twellmann (German studies) organized a workshop at the Bischofsvilla (Konstanz), where historians and literary scholars met and discussed their research along different thematic lines. One panel was dedicated to our research – the baptism of fire for our group.
From different regional (or rather cross-regional) perspectives we presented our observations of an important change in discourses on revolts that occurred with the advent of Enlightenment.
