    How to navigate an archive: Looking for witchcraft trials in the State Archive of Venice and in the ecclesiastical Archive of Udine: a personal experience from the early 1960s

    Carlo Ginzburg is one of the most original and influential historians of our time. He has ranged widely in his scholarly work, and has also written on questions of historical method, but his main and major contributions have been made as an historian of early-modern Europe.

    Professor Ginzburg’s oeuvre is impressively large, and includes six major works on early-modern European social, cultural and intellectual history. His scholarship displays an exceptional coherence of subject-matter and approach.

    Contemporary Jewish Women’s Writing in Germany and Austria – A ‘Minor’ Literature?

    Contemporary Jewish Women’s Writing in Germany and Austria – A ‘Minor’ Literature?

    This one-day workshop aims to probe whether the label and concept of a ‘minor literature’ (Deleuze/Guattari, 1975) can be usefully applied to contemporary writing by female Jewish authors in Germany and Austria. The workshop will explore what the term ‘minor’ could mean and contribute when discussing a broad range of contemporary authors and their aesthetics and writing practices, images of the self/the other inside and outside of their works, forms of community building, and their relationship with the broader literary field (i.e. the literary market).
