deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 1, 2020

The International Philosophical Congress will be held 22‒27 September 2020 at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland.

The fiftieth anniversary of the death of the eminent Polish philosopher and humanist Roman Ingarden in 2020 is an occasion to launch an international academic debate on current trends in contemporary philosophy. The main aim of the organisers is therefore to furnish an international group of researchers with a convenient space for a free and creative exchange of thoughts, ideas, and views.

We invite researchers interested in contemporary philosophy, cognitive science and gender/queer studies. 

The Thematic Panels will be organized within the following themes:

This panel invites papers seeking to address the interrelation between city centers and developing peripheral areas of cities within cinematic urbanisms. In doing so, we aim to explore the persistent--and often conflicting--binary notions of center and margin as well as urban and non-urban and investigate the complex web of structures that produce urban marginality on the various scales.

Digital Methodology in the Linguistic Study of Literature: Theory

Linguistics and Literature Forum Session 1

MLA 2021 Annual Convention, Toronto, Jan 7-10

Digital tools have indisputably made many tasks in the linguistic study of literature much easier and faster than used to be. But the turn to digital methods has brought more than ease and efficiency; it has forever changed the field. What are the ways in which digital tools have shaped the linguistic study of literature? And what are the ways literary studies has itself inspired innovation, methods, and the development of new digital tools?

Digital tools have become increasingly more important in the linguistic study of literature; for instance, they allow us to streamline much of our work. In what ways have digital methods made your work easier or more efficient? Do some tools lend themselves better to particular problems? What best practices have scholars found as they manage programs and data?

A recent assessment of the state of the humanities (Williams, “The New Humanities,” Chronicle of Higher Education, 14 Nov. 2019) speaks of the rise of “hybrid humanities” -- increasingly collaborative research ventures built around subjects and approaches such as the environment, digital methods, global networks, and public-facing scholarship. And proficiency, if not mastery, in a second discipline after graduate school seems to be an emerging interest (and even need) among researchers according to an upcoming report on the needs of faculty in literature and writing studies conducted by Ithaka S+R and the MLA International Bibliography.

Considerable research has been devoted to Fyodor Dostoevsky's incorporation of non-Russian art and texts as inspiration for his writing. Comparatively less attention, however, has been to paid to the immense influence the author's own life and works have had on literature, drama, philosophy, and art. This panel seeks to explore Dostoevsky's reception, as a man and as an author, by 20th and 21st century world writers and artists. It is co-sponsored by the International Dostoevsky Society and the Reception Study Society in celebration of the author's 200th year.
