Ever since Max Weber in scientific and philosophical reflection, the idea appeared that the Reformation is not only a historical phenomenon but above all socio-cultural. Associated with it were, among others, individualism, experientialism, modernity, innovation, activism, asceticism in the world, creativity, self-reflection, communitarianism, economy, development of accounting, criticism, capitalism, the culture of writing and printing. It's only a few examples of phenomena and values ​​associated inextricably with the wider Reformation in culture. The very existence of the Reformation bears fruit historically in the concept of tolerance and respect for diversity. The list of themes and values ​​certainly is not limited and closed.

Elizabeth Bowen: A Revaluation, May 6th 2017 - Deadline Extended

updated: 
Sunday, February 12, 2017 - 4:33pm
University of Bedfordshire, UK
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2017

Recent years have seen a growing and sustained interest in the work of Elizabeth Bowen.  Her work can be read through a wide variety of literary approaches, and this has led to an expanding body of criticism.  No longer thought of as a writer on the margins of Bloomsbury, Bowen rightly occupies a central place in our understanding of both the twentieth century and twentieth-century literature. 

 

The aim of this conference is to continue the re-evaluation of Bowen’s body of work, and we welcome abstracts that will add to our understanding of both the writer and the novels, short stories and other prose she produced.
