The Theory and Philosophy Caucus of the North American Society for the Study of Romanticism (NASSR) is sponsoring a conference/workshop on “German Idealism and Post-Structuralism,” organised by Tilottama Rajan (University of Western Ontario) and Gabriel Trop (University of North Carolina—Chapel Hill). The event will involve discussion of pre-circulated papers of conference or chapter length that are to form part of the Palgrave Handbook of German Idealism and Post-Structuralism, edited by Tilottama Rajan and Daniel Whistler (Royal Holloway, London). To accommodate different time zones, avoid zoom fatigue and allow time for reading the papers, the conference will be held over four half days in March (March 13/14 and 27/28). The purpose of the volume is to trace connections between Idealism (broadly defined as including Romanticism) and Post-Structuralism (also eclectically defined as post-1968 Theory), and/or to use the latter to open up ways of reading the former. Papers cover a range of Idealist and Romantic philosophers from Hegel and Schelling to Schopenhauer and Hölderlin, and topics from technology and systems to religion, art and psychoanalysis.
The conference is free to all NASSR members interested in participating, but requires registration through NASSR and membership in NASSR. A detailed programme and schedule will be sent to all participants and posted on the NASSR website. A zoom link and copies of the pre-circulated papers will be sent to all participants.
While all presenters for the event have been determined, attendance and discussion is open to all. To join NASSR, please click here. Once your membership is activated, you will have access to the conference registration (no fee) here. The registration deadline is 1 March 2021.
