Material Aspects of Power and Domination

ITW Material AspectsThe ITW "Material Aspects of Power and Domination" would like to examine above all the material staging of power and domination and to pursue the question of how these two categories are symbolised, represented and legitimised. Thus, for example, the task of the ruling class, formulated as an ideal in many text sources, is placed at the centre of attention, namely to provide for the economic subsistence of their subordinates.

The resulting scope of action of the ruler and the tendency of the elites to imitate the material staging of the highest rulers will be a further focus of future work.
