Scholars are invited to present papers in which they reflect upon Hubert Damisch’s ideas in relation to their own research. The contributions will be followed by a panel discussion enabling Hubert Damisch to respond to these interpretations of his thought.
The conference aims to explore some of the challenges that Damisch has posed to the writing of (art) history. Contributors may concentrate on his dialogue with diverse fields of knowledge (psychoanalysis, phenomenology, structuralism) and media (art, film, photography, architecture) in order to assess the contribution of Damisch to an interdisciplinary study and criticism of cultural history. We are particularly interested in contributions that will address his more recent interventions in the fields of architecture Skyline), photography (La Dénivelée, La Peinture en écharpe), and cinema (Ciné Fil).
Please send your proposal (no more than 300 words) for a 20-minute paper and a short biography to Sophie Berrebi (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Eric de Bruyn (E.C.H.de.Bruyn@rug.nl). Please include 'Damisch' in the subject-heading of your email.
