Mit besten Grüßen,
On behalf of the Regional Group Munich of the Deutsche Gesellschaft der Humboldtianer, we cordially invite you to the Salon on May 7th which takes place in the Internationales Begegnungszentrum München (IBZ), as usual.
During the Salon a lecture will be given by Nil Palabiyik on
“Learning Turkish in Renaissance Europe, 1544–1680”.
Early modern Europe witnessed a burgeoning interest in the Turkish culture and history, which gave rise to a significant oriental influence in the arts, fashion, literature and music. The popular but fragmented portrayals of the ‘image of the Turk’ have long been scrutinized. An unexplored area remains the study of Turkish language for scholarly purposes. My talk explores the intriguing relationship between Europe and the Ottoman Empire through the medium of Turkish language aids and reference works, including lexica, grammars and phrasebooks. By tracing the circumstances of their production, their circulation, provenance, previous owners, use and reception, I seek to contribute to a better understanding of history of western knowledge of, and attitudes towards the Ottoman Empire at a formative period in the history of both regions.
As usual, there will be wine and cheese before the talk and a chance to continue the discussion with the speaker after the talk.
If you want to join us, please register by sending an email so that we can plan accordingly.
Venue:Internationales Begegnungszentrum München (IBZ), Amalienstr. 38, 80799 München
Date: Tuesday, May 7th, 2019, 19:30h
With kind regards,
Stefan Recksiegel and Lutz Cleemann
