According to Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, “To imagine is to represent without
aiming at things as they actually, presently and subjectively are.” Imagination is
associated with creativity and the ability to conceive and envision ideas, images,
visions, societies and sensations in ways that transcend reason, and reach beyond
reality. It is a force that ongoingly wrestles with the constitution of reality, and is
credited for having shaped the world as we know it through the cumulative work of
writers, artists, scientists and philosophers. Imagination, hence, produces, creates a
higher reality that becomes the new reality. It is a synthesizing force that oscillates

Today, as the workings of humanity are increasingly linked with the destruction wrought by the Anthropocene, ‘the era of man,’ we feel compelled to re-examine our links with human and other-than-human others ever more closely. Confronting numerous crises, hostilities and conflicts, as well as witnessing an unprecedented momentum of social, political, medical, technological and linguistic change, we are now facing the challenge of redefining our goals, policies and discourses within the field of the humanities yet again.

We welcome contributions addressing, but not limited to, the following topics:

Old Language(s), New Technologies: Corpus Linguistics and European Languages in the Renaissance, 1400s-1600s

The Renaissance is universally acknowledged to be a crucial moment in Europe for the development of vernacular national languages which begin to establish their prestige alongside Latin. Historical linguists have focused on the many interesting peculiarities of the European vernaculars in this period, such as the high degree of spelling fluctuation, (non-)lexicalisation of words, phonological and morphological adjustments, semantic shifts, etc. When it comes to diachronic approaches to corpus linguistics, however, scholars are sometimes sceptic about the possibilities offered by machine-readable samples of both literary and non-literary texts belonging to the Renaissance.

Negation | Call for papers
Graduate student conference, dept. of German Studies, Brown University | Feb. 17 & 18, 2023 | in person

What “no” does, is not nothing. This proposition implies that we have understood what it is to say no, that its effects are predictable, and that it is involved with “doing,” with “being,” and with “things.” It also asks us to answer the question: what is “not-no,” and what is “yes”? Negation is not only not- positing, but, depending on the thinker, it is the engine of history, the enigma of the will, the guarantor or violator of being, the weapon of oppression, the foothold of theology, the urgent task of language.

The term ‘modernity’ signifies a brand new age, distinguishing human experiences and values as different from the past. From the mid-nineteenth century, ‘modern life’ began to denote transformations in all aspects, such as technology, economics, industry and urbanisation. In the cultural field, modernity is grounded in critical methods for creating new values to promote the progress of humanity.
