Research seminar: Un reino de sensaciones Escenarios sensoriales y comunicación en el mundo hispánico (siglos XV-XVII), 3-4 March 2022

Presentación de PowerPoint

Empire of the Senses. Sensorial Contexts and Communication in the Iberian World (15th to 17th Centuries).

History of the senses and sensibilities has attempted to analyse the influences that determined sensory perceptions and their corresponding emotional response. The ways in which people reacted to sensory stimuli had repercussions both in their individual conduct and in collective situations. The aim of this meeting is to explore the relationship between sensory experiences and political practices in the fifteenth to seventeenth centuries.

The Tridentine decree on images (1563) – which might well be considered a decree regarding the senses – was one of the most explicit theoretical formulations as regards the communicative possibilities afforded by the impact of the senses. This declaration has often been taken as a point of departure for its influence on the creative imagination of absolute monarchies when, in fact, it built on an earlier well-established tradition. Visual representation, sonic or olfactory impressions or haptic and gustatory experiences had, from the early Middle Ages, been an established means by which rulers of various kinds conveyed messages that consolidated their authority.

The enactment of sensorial events as a means of communication became still more frequent as the formation of extensive political systems resulting from conquests and territorial expansion increased the complexity of the relationship between rulers and ruled. In the first centuries of the early modern period this need became especially pressing for the Iberian monarchies of global reach, diverse territories and heterogenous political traditions.

Through ritual, representation and material objects of various kinds, the rulers of these monarchies sought to engage the sensibilities of their subjects in order to create an emotional link that would make them susceptible to messages intended to strengthen the bonding process with power. Shape and colour, sound, scent, taste and texture were combined in a melting-pot of sensory elements through which they acquired specific political meanings.

Although our main focus will be territories under Spanish rule, we also wish to explore the relationship between sensorial experiences and practices in other geographical areas and other contexts – local, ecclesiastical or social – in order to establish a comparative perspective and to trace the flux of political practices and cultural manifestations.
