2022W, scientific seminar (SEW), 4.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S04341

Description

Crop plants, as well as ornamental plants, were an early commodity brought to Europe in the early modern period during the Crusades, on expeditions and from colonised countries. They were cultivated and used as food, in medicine, but also for ornamentation. As carriers of a transcultural, but also colonial memory, as well as due to their symbolic meaning, they mark their imperial migration history in the present. In contemporary art, they become witnesses of the imperial past, but also of recent power asymmetries in the globalised present.

In this seminar, the political rootedness of plants will be examined in a transhistorical and transcultural perspective by reading different texts on the history of science and colonial history as well as through a range of artistic projects.

Examination Modalities

Participation in the preliminary meeting on 11.10.2022, attendance, discussion, reflection, presentation, which leads to a written seminar paper, are conditions for a positive grade.
