BeschreibungInternational Conference: The Emergence of Impartiality: Towards a Prehistory of Objectivity
14-16 July, 2011

Organized by PD Dr. Anita Traninger (Freie Universität Berlin) and Dr. Kathryn Murphy (University of Oxford)
Freie Universität Berlin, Topoi-Haus, Hittorfstraße 18, 14195 Berlin-Dahlem

From the early seventeenth century onwards, the epithet 'impartial' appears ubiquitously in publications from different disciplines, figuring in the titles of works of history, economy, law, and philosophy, as well as histories of the church and of emerging nation states.

The objective of the conference is to map out the contexts in which impartiality emerged as a key tenet of learned practices during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and to describe the implications of the changing self-descriptions of different cultures of knowledge. Papers will trace the notion of impartiality in various discourses, and thus contribute to a deeper understanding of the emergence and development of this ‘travelling concept’, the routes it took, and the role played by various discursive fields in shaping it. A particular focus of attention is the relationship of impartiality to the modern notion of objectivity.

The conference is generously supported by the Fritz Thyssen Foundation and is organized in collaboration with the Dahlem Humanities Center and the Interdisciplinary Centre “Middle Ages – Renaissance – Early Modern Times”.
