In today’s goal-oriented, fast-paced and relentlessly changing world, the idea of eternal time seems to either have altogether disappeared or at the very least lost its currency. What then, if any, can we say to be the role and place of such a notion today? How and in what contexts can it be considered today? Where, when and in what form might it manifest itself? What function, what status has it acquired? And what potential role can we see it play in the future ?
The Meisel Atelier de pensée/Humanities Centre at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario CANADA is proud to announce its second interdisciplinary conference. The theme this year will be Eternal Time.
In order to evaluate and attempt to think through the notion of Eternal Time as it pertains to us today, we invite papers from independent artists, researchers, faculty and students from all disciplines which address and engage the idea of eternal time as it pertains to their particular field of interest.
The objective of the conference is to foster a dialogue between disciplines which don’t often have an opportunity to come together and to enable them to collaboratively explore what the notion of Eternal Time has come to designate and signify in the various contexts of our contemporary world.
Papers will be limited to 20 minutes followed by general discussion.
Abstracts (150 words) should include your title, name, area of expertise, affiliation and a short c.v.
