Cursusdoelen
- students will gain a general understanding of the historical developments in:
   - media (oral, textual, visual) in premodern Europe
   - the uses of rhetoric
- students will gain insight in current methodological and theoretical debates in cultural history
- students will train their research skills in working with premodern sources
Inhoud
Persuasion is a crucial but also an elusive force in European premodern history. This course explores how individuals created, developed and applied forms of persuasion through different media of communication. It focuses in particular on textual, visual and oral media and the significance of the rhetorical tradition, for example preaches, songs, gossip, drama, pamphlets and images. We will address questions such as: how did rulers, writers, artists and preachers try to persuade their audiences? What is the significance of charisma? How can we study the persuasive power of historical sources?
 
Throughout the weeks, we will focus on a specific case study, i.e. the persuasive role of media in the Protestant Reformation. What persuaded 16th century people to follow this religious movement? To give this case study a broader historical framework, we will consider how medieval people dealt with persuasion in the late middle ages. All students will be invited to reflect actively on how media and persuasion are useful notions to analyse in relation to sources and situations pertaining to their own period and topic of specialisation.

If you are a non-AMR student and wish to follow this course as a Research Master Elective, you can only enroll with consent of the programme coordinator Floris van den Eijnde.

The entrance requirements for Exchange Students will be checked by the International Office and the Programme coordinator. Acceptance is not self-evident.
