Early-modern revolts as communicative events

Frühneuzeitliche Revolten als Kommunikationsereignisse

Die Forschungsgruppe untersucht Kommunikation sowohl in wie auch über Revolten. V.a. interessiert uns der Einfluss dieser Revoltenkommunikation auf die Entstehung und Veränderung „politischer Grammatiken“ (Legitimationen von Herrschaft und Widerstandsrecht) und auf längerfristige obrigkeitliche Präventionspolitiken in der Frühen Neuzeit. Wir fragen danach, wie Revolten erinnert und vergessen gemacht wurden.

The research group examines both communication within and about revolts in Early Modern times. We are particularly interested in the impact of such communication on both the emergence of and changes in "political grammars" (legitimation of rule and justifications of a right to resist) and long-term preventive strategies adopted by the authorities. We explore how revolts were commemorated or consigned to oblivion.
