You are warmly welcome to the seminar of the Helsinki Centre for Intellectual History Seminar
"After Philology: A Wild Goose Chase"
Common Room of the Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Study
2 October 2018, 4–6 pm
Papers by Henning Trüper
Chaired by Elise Garritzen
A paper is attached to this e-mail. Henning explains it like this:
“This is the first chapter of a book manuscript on the history of orientalism as analyzed in the context of the history of philology. Since ‘philology’ is a very messy term, I decided to conduct some genealogical work on it, mainly in the German-language context. The aim of this exercise was both to clarify its meaning and to mount a broader argument as to why philology has great interpretive force for understanding what orientalism was, and why both, when taken together, explain a vast domain of theoretical thought in the humanities. I am aware it’s a somewhat long submission for this seminar, but I hope it will be of some interest nonetheless.”
See you next Tuesday!
