>As Peter Burke has claimed, images should not be studied as simplistic
>reflections of the reality of the time. More often, these images
>represent viewpoints and are a product of conscious manipulation.  The
>main reason for devoting so much attention to images is not that they
>are reflective of something else but they constitute events by
>themselves. In Burke's words, it is not only that all history involves
>representation, but that all representations are part of history.
>
>The house of Habsburg showed like no other the linkage between the
>making of art and history. Under their patronage, both writers and
>artists exposed the inner tensions of a period ruled by ideological
>anxieties and excitement.
>
>We invite participants to address the complexities of this visual
>history and literature. Presentations are allotted 20 minutes with
>additional time for question and response.
