Appel de conférences pour un workshop interdisciplinaire sur le thème « Possibilities and Limitations of Socio-Religious Community and Identity Formation in the 18th and 19th Century Moravian Church », Hambourg, 27-28 juillet 2023.
« The interdisciplinary workshop will explore both the possibilities and limitations of a collective Moravian understanding of community in different social, institutional and cultural contexts. How deeply rooted and how extensive was the Moravian collective identity? How was it created, maintained, and secured? How did Moravian communities provide space for individual development? How did ties to other institutions and competing sets of values interfere with Moravian community formation ? Questions such as these can productively be explored through media such as music, literature (including personal writing) and art, which shaped Moravian identity and everyday life but also had the potential of becoming individual artistic expressions.
Our workshop welcomes contributions from disciplines of the humanities (history, literary studies, musicology, and art history), religious studies and theology, pedagogy as well as history of architecture. Papers may study the Moravian Church as a whole or focus on a single settlement, community or member in their respective regional, national and international contexts. »
