Understanding of questions on historic material culture

The material turn has received little attention in the science of history. A little later than the linguistic turn or the related iconic turn it was developed in the 1990ies and, by nature, offers particular opportunities in terms of interdisciplinarity: e.g. between ethnology, archaeology, art history and, for that matter, also history. 

After all, research was conducted on historic material culture – albeit in other or narrower contexts – even before the cultural turn: like in traditional form in the so-called “material remains“, in the sphere of social history in the so-called Annales School, as well as in Austrian medieval studies. Researching “things“ past came back in the form of a material turn via the more recent sciences which are globalised and much more interconnected, in particular historical anthropology – and on top of that it became the re-turn to the material field. In the course we will therefore use texts to shed light on that theoretical change and try to ‘read’ selected historical artefacts with new eyes.
