The conference will help to establish an inventory of material evidence of asymmetrical dependencies and its range of expression and information as an important site of asymmetrical dependencies next to the written word. Taking into consideration the “material turn” as well as recent debates on environmental history and bio-history, we also aim to relativize the modern/Western focus on written culture from a pre-colonial perspective. The conference is organized along four thematic panels: Bodies, Representations, Resources, and Spaces.
