Invitation to lectures

Department of Ethnology and Cultural anthropology, Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana

 


On Friday, November 22, 2019 we invite you to lectures of

 

prof. Paul Shore

(University Brandon, Manitoba, Canada)

 

 

Lectures will take place at Department of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology (Zavetiška 5) in the following order:

 

-         at 9.40 in the lecture room P4: Jesuit Proto-Ethnologists of the Habsburg Realms, 1690-1770


Missionary projects, a curiosity about differences, and the Jesuit way of observing, organizing and reporting data all combined in the period before the suppression of the Society of Jesus in 1773 to lead Jesuits to field work that anticipates the ethnographical studies of the 19th and 20th centuries. We will look at the contributions of three Jesuits with origins in the Habsburg realms to gain a glimpse of the breadth of Jesuit engagement with the “Indies” (broadly defined) and also to understand how and even why these men studied the cultures that they encountered.

 

 

-         at 11.00 in the lecture room P4: Adam František Kollár: Foster Father of Ethnology?


A. F. Kollár  (1718-1783)  the “Slovak Socrates,” was an Enlightenment polymath and also the first to use the Latin term ethnologia.  Kollár’s understanding of ethnology was fundamentally different from that of de Guignes and others of the French school, who looked for the progress of nations “towards civilization.”   Kollár’s focus was on an inquiry, as he put it, “into the origins, languages, customs, and institutions of various nations, [that] seeks to learn about their homelands and ancient seats, with the intent of judging nations and peoples in their own times.” We shall see that his thinking was shaped by his Jesuit formation and that his contribution to the development of ethnology has been greater than was once thought.
