Panel Sessions on the Holy Roman Empire

The Holy Roman Empire is very much an "in" subject, with the two current exhibitions in Berlin and Magdeburg, the large, encompassing volumes from the exhibitions, and the recent conference in Oxford--these among many other conferences, symposia, and publications. We are planning a series of panels on the HRE for the next meeting of the German Studies Association in San Diego. We hope to tap into the developing discussions but wish to find a number of new issues that can push the discussions in fresh directions. In the first place, we would like to see a breaking down of the medieval/early modern divide. Are there broad issues of "political-religious geography" that connect the two eras--the place of scripture in building traditions and as a source for doctrine, the role of magistrates in the Church, and the relation of correct faith and piety, for example? A second wall to break down is that between literature and history. Can we bring, for example, a literature scholar's analysis of Lohenstein's Arminius into discussions by historians about the political culture of the Reich? At past sessions, we have not had much participation of historians of art, music, political theory, philosophy, and theology, and we would like to encourage the development of topics that they will find inviting. After consulting a number of scholars, we have come up with a fairly long list of potential panel topics. Please contact David Sabean ( if you are interested in giving a paper or commenting on or chairing a session. Since the final deadline for suggesting completed panels is February 15, we would like to have all suggestions in hand by January 15 in order to sort them out for submission.

Here are a few ideas for panels:

Architecture of space: court/aristocracy/Church; cartography and visualization
Forms of sociality
Imperial justice
Kinship dynamics: rulers/aristocrats/patricians
Networks of female rulers
Jewish Culture in the HRE
Media and Publics
School and university culture
Political theory/representation of the Reich
Symbolic-ritual systems and technical-instrumental practices
Scandals in the Empire--what could princes get away with?
Forms of communication
Confessional Federations
The resources and forms of agrarian states
Religious/theological dispute and political allegiance
Localism as a structural feature of the Reich
Practices of Urban and Village Politics
Rulership on the local level
Cultural integration/cultural withdrawal: attitudes and practices of elites concerning "inferiors"
Nineteenth-century political culture and the Holy Roman Empire
