The Warburg Library’s Network: Geography and History of an Intellectual Afterlife. From Hamburg to London, and to Montreal. The contribution of Raymond Klibansky (1905-2005)

decoration18 Jun. 2015|19 Jun. 2015

From the 1920s the Warburg Library owed its unique politics of publication to a close-knit network around Fritz Saxl and Gertrud Bing – a network of collaborators in which Raymond Klibansky played a crucial role. The 10th anniversary of the death of Klibansky will be an occasion to reflect on his exceptional contribution to the great collective ventures of the library, which profoundly altered our perception of occidental intellectual history through publications like the Latin and Arabic Corpus Platonicum Medii Aevi (1940-1962) or the belated but all the more famous Saturn and Melancholy (1964).
Speakers: Morgan Gaulin (CCEAE, Montreal), Georges Leroux (UQAM), Raphaële Mouren (Warburg Institute), Elisabeth Otto (Université de Montréal), Davide Stimilli (University of Colorado at Boulder), Elizabeth Sears (University Michigan), Martin Treml (Zentrum für Literatur- und Kulturforschung Berlin), Jean-Philippe Uzel (UQAM), Regina Weber (Stuttgart), Claudia Wedepohl (Warburg Institute) and Graham Whitaker (Glasgow)
