    Ideologies of Convenience: Cynicism and Irony
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Keynote speaker: Silke-Maria Weineck, University of Michigan “I know what I’m doing but I’m doing it nevertheless” - Slavoj Žižek’s description of modern cynicism echoes its definition by German philosopher Peter Sloterdijk as “false enlightened consciousness”. The 20th century has turned cynicism into a mass phenomenon (Peter Sloterdijk), a “condition of disillusion” (Timothy Bewes).

    Unverfügbarkeit – Latenz – Widmung: Das Heilige in der Kultur
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Vom „Heiligen“ sprechen heißt, sich tief hineinbegeben in ein Feld anhaltender Definitionskämpfe. Ausgetragen wurden und werden sie mit teils harten Bandagen als Streit um Legitimations- und Machtansprüche, um Meinungsführerschaft und Aufmerksamkeit. Dabei hatte das Heilige über Jahrhunderte hinweg die Bedeutung einer starken, nicht hinterfragbaren Setzung gehabt. In den durch die Säkularisierung hindurchgegangenen Gesellschaften schien sie diese Bedeutung zwar vorübergehend verloren zu haben,...

    Global Places of Literature: Production – Distribution – Reception. Interdisciplinary Conference
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    In times of global deterritorialisation and transnational cultural exchange, the prominence of local places of production and reception has become more, rather than less, significant: Writers' museums, for example in Weimar and Stratford-upon-Avon, Orhan Pamuk's Museum of Innocence in Istanbul, chapbook presses across the globe, literary institutions such as Copenhagen's LiteraturHaus, UNESCO Cities of Literature, for instance in Cracow and Prague, and slam events in many cities have emerged in...

As an area of unregulated...
