--- Conference and Publication: Contemporary Literary Theory and Contemporary Interpretation of Literature ---
The Cusanuswerk invites academic personnel, senior students; PHD candidates and Post-Doctoral researchers to submit previously unpublished papers on the topics of contemporary literary theory and/or contemporary interpretations of literary texts.
This conference and publication project aims to explore a wide range of theoretical themes that are relevant for the philosophy of literature, for literary criticism and theory, and for actual readings of literary texts, that utilize contemporary literary theories.
The aim is to bridge the gap between "theoretical" and "practical" approaches to the (theory of) literary interpretation, and to prompt participants coming from different backgrounds to engage with one another.
We aim to bring together a number of scholars from all departments of literary studies to discuss a series of shared issues. The hope is to bring about a heightened appreciation of the variety of approaches that are possible in each case.
The conference will be held in Bonn, Germany in late Fall 2014 (September 25-28). The publication shall follow soon thereafter.
Please send full papers and a one-page CV to L. Essipov at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submissions will be considered as they arrive (blind peer-review), and consideration will continue until March 15 2014.
