On Friday, April 7, at 5 pm the Institute of Art History in Zagreb will host a panel on the Chronogeographical Database of Grand Tourism in Dalmatia in the 18th and the 19th Century, with a introductionary lecture about the Grand Tour Dalmatia research project progress, focused on the presentation given by a team members at the conference Slavic Tower of Babel in Poznan. The database is being developed as part of the research project.
Cvijeta Pavlović and Ana Šverko participated in the international conference entitled Rewriting, diversity and cultural interference – the Slavic Tower of Babel. Translations, interactions and mutual influences. The conference was held in Poznań, Poland, from October 26 to 28 as part of the Slavic Tower of Babel festival. The paper they gave, entitled Mediating Croatian antiquity: from global to local and back, focused on travelogues about Dalmatia. The authors proposed that travel writers’ texts, just like drawings, convey much more than their ostensible subjects. A search for accidental transmitters of knowledge present in these works can enable us to study the spirit of place of the cities and towns that were recorded.
The workshop seeks to investigate Diocletian’s Palace as a living monument.
By researching the urban attributes of the Palace as systems of mat-organization, the workshop will identify and experience the Palace as highly complex spatial conglomeration.
