The Construction of Identity in Medieval and Early Modern Times: Reflections on a Problem in Art History International Conference
In recent years, studies on identity have noticeably increased, not only in formerly core disciplines such as sociology, gender studies or cultural sciences, but in art history as well. Concerning the application of the term "identity" to art historical studies, however, either the adoption of theoretical deductions from those disciplines is rarely connected stringently to the objects of art or the usage of "identity" occurs without consideration of its methodological and theoretical implications. This is especially the case for the art of the medieval and early modern times. Therefore, this international conference seeks to reflect fundamentally upon the usage of the term "identity" in art history, to possibly revise established opinions, and to problematize the possibilities for methodological orientation.
