The conference is dedicated to Russian literature and culture from the Romantic period to the present day, viewed in the context of its genuine interculturalism. The conference explores theoretical as well as artistic deconstructions of polarized models of culture. A key metaphor for an anti-essentialist and anti-dualistic conceptualization of culture can be seen in Novalis’ image of "grains of pollen" (Blütenstaub), which spread over the entire cultural space, to ensure its fertility.
The conference will deal, in historical and systematic perspective, with different dialogical aspects of Russian literature and music history as well as linguistics and literary studies: 1) Images and words beyond nations, 2) Dialogues (Dostoevsky and beyond, 3) Ethics and politics, 4) Romanticist echoes. 5) Modernist echoes, 6) Voices, bodies.
The conference is dedicated to the 80th birthday of Boris M. Gasparov, founder of the Philological department of the Higher School of Economics (HSE) in Saint Petersburg and its head until October 2019. It was planned for 2020 but had to be postponed due to the Covid pandemic. The topic of the conference is closely related to Prof. Gasparov’s research interests in a comparativist view on transnational dynamics, particularly in the eras of romanticism and modernism.
Conference papers will be presented in either English or Russian.
The conference will be held online. The link to the Zoom meeting can be requested at this address: email@example.com
