A one-day conference on the topic Phenomenology and Modernism will be held at
the Maison Française d'Oxford on 24 June 2006.
The thrust of this conference is to assess the continuing significance of
phenomenology in relation to the arts and its engagement with modernism.
The underlying thesis of this conference is that phenomenology and modernism are
inextricably linked. The intellectual history of the XXth Century is strewn with
examples of a fruitful dialogue between writers and artists on the one hand and
phenomenology on the other hand.
The conference seeks to address critical questions regarding the relationship
between phenomenology and modernism, with reference to Maurice Merleau-Ponty,
who remains today one of the most influential phenomenologists interested in
literary and aesthetic studies, but also Edmund Husserl "the founder of
phenomenology", Martin Heidegger, Gaston Bachelard, Paul Ricoeur and others.
This conference is intended to be an interdisciplinary forum for scholars
exploring a variety of issues gravitating around the interaction between
phenomenology and modernism. Therefore, we welcome contributions from scholars
working in a wide range of fields, including literature, art, philosophy and
Proposals for papers (in English or French) are invited on the following topics:
the influence of phenomenology and its relevance to modern aesthetics, what
modernism owes to the phenomenological tradition, the affinity between the arts
and phenomenology, such concepts as time, consciousness etc.
Proposals for twenty-minute papers should include a title and be no more than
500 words in length. Please submit by e-mail to the organisers, Dr Carole
(email@example.com) and Dr Ariane Mildenberg
(firstname.lastname@example.org) by 20 January 2006.
This conference will be held at the Maison Française d'Oxford, Norham Rd,
Oxford. Further information available from the organisers.
