2019 CONFERENCE
EMBODYING ROMANTICISM

Subject Fields:

This panel will broach the topic of shaping a poetic identity through the prism of a traumatic experience of displacement. How does the poet present a disturbing personal history on the page? Coming from one place and being forcibly moved to another also involves confronting a different language and culture: how is such an occurrence translated to the page? Is poetry a space where cultures and languages clash with one another, or does the expression effect a reconciliation?

Tropes of Globalization: International Conference (27-29.6.2019)

Subject Fields: 
Literature, Philosophy, World History / Studies

Textual (re)presentations or (discursive) 'constructions' of globalization cannot avoid operating via linguistic tropes – in literature as well as in other textual modes. The "rhétorique restreinte" (Gérard Genette) in contemporary literary and cultural studies tends to privilege metaphor, applying the term even for tropological relations obviously not based on similarity. As a countermove to this simplification, our conference proposes to revisit the rhetoric tradition in order to develop a more differentiated set of descriptions for the (re)presentations of an earth-encompassing world.
