Technological advances at the intersection between science and art have provided new ways of scrutinizing and representing microcosmic and the macrocosmic realms by multiplying the scales and the processes involved in the constitution of the material world. Technologies such as the microscope, photography, imaging technologies (PET scan, X-ray, MRI), human-made mutations and microcinematography have challenged the boundaries between the animate and the inanimate, and have posed important challenges to traditional notions of the organic and inorganic, human and non-human, nature and urban, normalcy and pathology.

Cosmopolitanism, both as an idea and a way of living, has exercised a shaping influence on humanistic imagination and literary culture. While the implications of traditional cosmopolitanism have long been associated with elitism, imperialism and Western universalism, the past few decades have witnessed a renewed interest in the concept as a non-elite and non-European formation, developing out of globalization and mobility.

The US presidential election of 2016 is scheduled for 8 November 2016, where the 45th President of the United States will likely be determined. Discussions and debates surrounding the event have been charged, to say the least, but we feel that this also an excellent opportunity to cut through the hype and the rhetoric to explore the nature and depictions of elections, both within reality and in fiction.
Early Modern Debts: Obligation and Cancellation in European Culture, 1550-1700
Otto-Friedrich-Universität Bamberg, 21-22 September 2017

Historians, philosophers, economists, scholars of art, literature and theatre have begun to attend more closely to the role of debt in early modern culture. It has become clear that private debt, nebulously conceived as credit, was involved in the production and reproduction of social relations, political ideology, even subjectivity. The history of debt has become an object of serious interdisciplinary interest, but the question of how apparently distinct forms of debt co-developed is often suspended.
