The topic will be the intersection between traditional and new forms of knowledge at the beginning of the Early Modern Period. Building on recent research on the theoretical impact of words and things (Grafton/Siraisi (ed.) 1999; Kessler/Maclean (ed.) 2002) we will be examining the theoretical content of new academic textbooks written between the years 1450 and 1650 and their connection to various aspects and illustrations of everyday life and practice outside the school. We expect to locate a variety of links to the surrounding social and object world. Furthermore, we propose that these relations helped to formulate concepts and patterns concerning the culture of everyday life. Among these are the developing patterns for describing the way people negotiate self perception, social life, nature and the world of objects and images of god. Academic textbooks are by themselves a very interesting and in their specific contents barely noticed genre of texts. Therefore we believe it beneficial to let them “speak” in an exemplary way: The conference presentations are expected to treat only one book each in context, to reveal its secrets and conceptual connections in a detailed way, and to take account of a representative selection of the different university disciplines.
