Die sichtbare Welt

Inwiefern ist die zunehmende Bedeutung des Sehens und der Reflexion über Visualität für den Übergang von der Frühen Neuzeit zur Moderne symptomatisch? Der hohe Stellenwert, den das Visuelle und die Auseinandersetzung mit dem Sehsinn sowie den Eigenarten der visuellen Wahrnehmung in verschiedenen Bereichen der niederländischen Kultur des 17. Jahrhunderts einnehmen, ist auffällig. Vor diesem Hintergrund werden hier die Diskurse des Sehens, in die Maler, Dichter und ihre Rezipienten im 17. Jahrhundert eingebunden sind, in ihrer begrifflichen Formierung greifbar gemacht. In systematischer und vergleichender Perspektive wird untersucht, welchen Prämissen die Konjunktur der Visualität, wie sie in der Literatur und Malerei der Zeit zu konstatieren ist, unterworfen war. Denn dem Sehsinn und seinen Repräsentationen werden neuzeitlich Erkenntnis stiftende Funktionen zugewiesen, für die auch die künstlerischen Medien in Dienst genommen werden konnten. Die Beiträge, Ergebnisse eines interdisziplinären Gesprächs zwischen niederlandistischer Literaturwissenschaft und Kunstgeschichte, eröffnen neue Perspektiven auf den je spezifischen Umgang mit Visualität in Text und Bild.

Representations of the Exotic

When European travelers went overseas in the sixteenth century, they encountered unfamiliar lands, peoples, and sights. These travelers had to re-present these encounters to Europeans for whom they stood for the unfamiliar--the "exotic." But the exotic, according to Peter Mason, is not something that exists prior to its "discovery." Rather, he points out, it is the very act of "discovery" that produces the exotic as such. In Infelicities Peter Mason explores the texts, paintings, drawings, photographs, and museum displays in which the exotic has been represented from the early modern period to the present. He describes the unique iconography that Europeans developed to represent the exotic and the means they employed to display it once artifacts were brought to Europe. In both instances, the exotic object is taken out of its original context and given a meaning and significance it never had; this new meaning and significance, Mason argues, are derived from the imposition of European cultural values and the need to recontextualize the object in a European setting. To differentiate the "exotic" from the "other," Mason says that in understanding the "other" there is engagement and interchange; in encountering the "exotic" it is a one-sided effort at understanding: the exotic object never gives up its meaning. The title of the book, Infelicities, comes from philosopher J. L. Austin, who used the term to refer to what happens when something goes wrong on the occasion of an act of utterance. For Mason, this "doctrine of infelicities" seems applicable to European encounters with the exotic and the efforts to represent thoseencounters.

Sex, Power, and Slavery

Sexual exploitation was and is a critical feature of enslavement. Across many different societies, slaves were considered to own neither their bodies nor their children, even if many struggled to resist. At the same time, paradoxes abound: for example, in some societies to bear the children of a master was a potential route to manumission for some women. Sex, Power, and Slavery is the first history of slavery and bondage to take sexuality seriously. Twenty-six authors from diverse scholarly backgrounds look at the vexed, traumatic intersections of the histories of slavery and of sexuality. They argue that such intersections mattered profoundly and, indeed, that slavery cannot be understood without adequate attention to sexuality. Sex, Power, and Slavery brings into conversation historians of the slave trade, art historians, and scholars of childhood and contemporary sex trafficking. The book merges work on the Atlantic world and the Indian Ocean world and enables rich comparisons and parallels between these diverse areas.
