Walter Benjamin's work remains central to discussions of modernity within the Humanities, Visual Arts, Design and Architecture. This conference will bring together scholars working on all aspects of Benjamin's work as well as those who deploy the insights of that work in developing projects of their own.
Abstracts of 300 words, which will be subject to a refereeing process, should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 30 2006. We also invite proposals for panels of three papers organized around a particular theme. Papers delivered at the conference should be 20 minutes in length.
