概要/Description

このシンポジウム「声と文字とをデザインする ――コミュニケーション帝国としてのモンゴル ――」は、政治権力とコミュニケーション体系との複雑な関係について議論する場であり、その焦点をモンゴル帝国(1206~1368年)に定めている。この種の関係の歴史的展開は、例えばハロルド・イニスの代表作『帝国とコミュニケーション』などによって、すでに詳細に研究されている。しかしイニスの叙述は、古代から中世を経て近代に至る「西洋」の発展を叙述しながら、必要に応じて「その他」に言及するというヘーゲル的な古典史観を超えてはいない。このシンポジウムは、イニスの後は例えばフリードリヒ・キットラーへと受け継がれたこの長きに亘る議論の「脱西洋中心主義化」を図ることで、この問題に新たな光を当てようとするものである。「西洋」と「その他」とを包括し、コミュニケーション体系においても際立った多様性を見せていたモンゴル帝国は、その格好の題材となる。

Our symposium “Designing Voices and Letters: The Mongols as an Empire of Communication” aims to provide an appropriate platform to discuss about entangled relationship between political powers and communication media, by especially dealing with the case of the Mongol empire (1206–1368). The historical strand of such relationship was already detailed, for example, by Harold Innis in his chef-d’œuvre Empire and Communications. However, he was based on what might be called “Hegelian historical narrative” which traced the development of the “West”—from the antiquity to the modern eras via the medieval ages—with referring to the “others” pro re nata. At the workshop, therefore, we attempt to shed some new light upon this long-discussed issue, which has been addressed after Innis by for example Friedrich Kittler, through emancipation from “Eurocentric” history. This perspective turns our attention toward the Mongol empire which encompassed the “West” and the “others,” standing out with the full variety of communication.
