16.06.2017 – 17.06.2017: Workshop – „The Ceremonial of Audience: Transcultural Perspectives on Pre-modern Representations of Power“

Veranstaltung im Rahmen des Teilprojekts „Herrschaftsrepräsentation und Zeremoniell am Moghulhof“ (Leitung: Prof. Dr. Eva Orthmann, Islamwissenschaft)

Plakat_Workshop_The Ceremonial of AudienceAudiences are among the dominant elements of courtly life and may be referred to as a central aspect of representation of power in many societies. Audiences also served as a stage for negotiation and political decision-making. Beyond that, the ceremonial of audience acted as an integrative factor, strengthening the connections between the ruler and his subjects, the élite and his dynastic background. The ceremonial of audience thus reflects the structure, or at least the intended structure of rule. It thus allows us to get insight into the perception of the ruler in the respective society.
The workshop suggests an interdisciplinary discussion of forms and structures of the ceremonial of audience. Choosing a transcultural and diachronic perspective, it aims at discussing similarities and differences as well as possible lines of development of the ceremonial on a broad basis of case studies.
