Online Conference: Erich Auerbach: Scholarship and Cultural Identity in Times of Crisis, A Critical View
日期 / Conference time: The first session will be at Taiwan time, March 12, at 5 am. The second session will be Taipei time, March 13 at 3:30 am. 
 
 
Join us to explore varying views on Erich Auerbach’s relation to German, Jewish and Christian thought. As Auerbach’s influence as a scholar of medieval and modern literature has spread, his reputation has grown as a cultural-historical figure known for writing his most important literary and cultural history in
exile during the National Socialist era. He now shares this focus of attention with Walter Benjamin, Theodor Adorno, and Hannah Arendt. This webinar will feature new research by German and American scholars who will discuss Auerbach’s debt to secular, Christian and Jewish intellectual traditions in Germany.

Conference time:
The first session will be at Taiwan time, March 12, at 5 am.
The second session will be Taipei time, March 13 at 3:30 am.

從蘇格拉底的魔鬼,到柯勒律治(Coleridge)作品裡追趕老水手的極地幽靈,再到最近電腦叛客網路電視影集《碳變》(Altered Carbon)中上傳至「皮層堆疊」(cortical stacks)的可傳遞意識,非物質的概念和再現遍及哲學、文學、電視廣播業和其他多種論述與媒介。所謂的「非物質」在神學裡是天使,在數學裡是p,「在」我的身體裡,則是我所體驗的所有想法、感覺和感質(qualia)。究竟這些非物質的狀態與存有物是什麼?非物質與物質之間又如何產生聯繫並相互影響?這是自古以來無數文獻持續辯論與描繪的主題。

儘管當代理論對身體、物件和物質性等議題有著相當的關注,即使如此,當代理論也不敢忽視「非物質」。其中的思辨實在論(speculative realism)思索非人存在體(nonhuman entities)的內部現實,以不同方式探究湯瑪斯•內格爾(Thomas Nagel)的著名問題:「成為一隻蝙蝠可能是什麼樣子?」。新物質主義則論證物質與精神現象兩者並非截然二分。在這些理論思潮之前,傅柯、德勒茲和其他二十世紀重要理論家早已針對意識形態、情動力和虛擬有所探究,他們的許多分析也啟發了部分前述的當代理論流派。若進一步回溯,則有精神分析和哲學中唯心論的傳統(the idealist tradition) ,兩者為心靈現象展開縝密的論述,並持續影響著當代視野。

上述這些思考問題的方式若有貫穿的主題,或許就是事物之間的聯結方式。比方說,非物質和物質之間如何交流溝通?個體與個體之間、個體與集體之間如何被分開或聯結?靈魂,是否如同傅柯所述,是「身體的禁錮」──若果真如此,我們如何逃脫?身體,是否如同麗莎•布萊克曼(Lisa Blackman)所述,為非物質的──若是,那麼何處是我身體的終點?我的意識和其他意識,如一隻蝙蝠的意識,又如何交融成一個生態、一個地球生態系(Gaia)或一個世界靈魂體?意識形態和情動力如何引發集體情緒,進而維持或改變時下的政治面貌?文學、書頁、(數位)油墨的物質性──以及非物質無形體的文學形式和文類、感官與意義──如何形塑與拆解我們的心理和與他者的互動?綜合上述,「非物質」是一個可以拋接於無數理論中的介面,鑒於「非物質」議題的重要性,本次研討會因此以「非物質」為題,誠摯邀請各位學者、先進與文學愛好者,從各個面向探討「非物質」在英美文學中的展現與論辯,以期為英美文學的創作、閱讀與理論研究開展出更寬廣多元的「非物質」空間。

會議包含但不侷限於以下子題:
•唯心論的(idealist)哲學傳統,或特定理想主義運動(例如:新柏拉圖主義、德國唯心主義)和文學之間的關係
•近期非物質理論的概念,如格拉厄姆•哈曼(Graham Harman)的《非物質主義》(Immaterialism)或伊莉莎白•葛洛思 (Elizabeth Grosz) 的《無形體》(The Incorporeal),或者更廣泛的學術思潮,如思辨實在論和新物質主義
•精神分析,如夢、執念、創傷、趨力、絕爽(jouissance)等
•科學(如認知心理學和神經科學)中的非物質
•宗教、神秘主義與泛靈論,如鬼魂、天使與魔鬼、幽靈、通靈和靈性等
•弱勢理論與非物質,如原住民研究、失能研究、酷兒研究、女性主義研究、批判種族研究、解殖民研究中的非物質論述與分析等
•科幻小說中的物質與非物質辯證,如賽伯格、外星人、機器人、人造智慧、VR、擴增實體或其他變體等
•恐怖與奇幻文學裡的物種
•超能力(如:預知與心電感應)、靈異現象和心靈技術(如冥想、瑜珈、祈禱等)
•魔術、鍊金術、玄學和偽科學等
•其他相關議題,如時間、空間、邏輯、數學和高次元、情動力、感情和情緒等

The 29thAnnual Conference of the English and American Literature Association

From Socrates’ daemon to the polar spirit that pursues Coleridge’s ancient mariner to the transferrable consciousness uploaded into “cortical stacks” on the recent cyberpunk series Altered Carbon, conceptions and representations of the immaterial abound in philosophy, literature, television, and almost every other discourse and medium. In theology, angels. In mathematics, p. “In” my body, all the ideas, sensations, and qualia that I experience. Exactly what these immaterial states and entities are and how they relate to and interact with material ones has been the subject of much debate and depiction in countless texts over millennia.

Nor does contemporary theory, which informs so much of our literary analysis, dismiss the immaterial as immaterial, despite its ample focus on bodies and materiality. There is the movement known as speculative realism, which speculates on, among other things, the interior reality of nonhuman entities, asking various permutations of Thomas Nagel’s famous question, “What is it like to be a bat?” There is the movement known as new materialism, which argues that there is no definitive break between material and spiritual phenomena. These relatively recent movements were preceded, and in some cases are informed, by the many analyses of ideologies, affects, and the virtual associated with the work of Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze, and other important theorists of the twentieth century. Running even further back, psychoanalysis and the idealist tradition in philosophy can likewise be seen as developing sophisticated explanations for psychic phenomena that continue to shape our present perspectives.

If all of these approaches have a unifying theme, perhaps it is that of connection. How do the immaterial and material communicate? How are individual selves split from, or connected to, each other and larger collectives? Is the soul, as Foucault puts it, the prison of the body—and if so, how do we escape? Is the body, as Lisa Blackman puts it, immaterial—and if so, where does my body end? How is my consciousness and the consciousness of, say, a bat integrated into an ecology, a Gaia, or a world soul? How do ideologies and affects give rise to a collective mood that maintains or alters the political landscape? How does the materiality of literature, the leaves, the (digital) ink—but also its intangible forms and genres, senses and meanings—form and deform our psychology and interactions with others? The immaterial is an interface upon which infinite ideas can be cast, and we ask that you cast them in our direction. Possible paper topics on the immaterial in English and American literature include, but are not limited to, the following:

•the idealist philosophical tradition, or more specifically the relationship between particular idealist movements (e.g., Neoplatonism, German Idealism) and literature
•recent theoretical conceptions of the immaterial, such as Graham Harman’s Immaterialism or Elizabeth Grosz’s The Incorporeal, or broader movements like speculative realism and new materialism
•psychoanalysis: dreams, obsession and paranoia, traumas, drive, jouissance, etc.
•cognitive psychology and neuroscience
•religion, mysticism, and panpsychism (including the topics of ghosts, angels and spirits, demons, spiritualism, and spirituality)
•theorization of the immaterial from minority knowledge, such as theories and analyses emerging from indigenous studies, disability studies, queer studies, feminist studies, critical race studies, decolonial studies, etc.
•the material-immaterial dialectic in science fiction: cyborgs, aliens, robots, AI, VR, augmented realities, or other alternated entities)
•species in horror and fantasy
•super powers (such as precognition and telepathy), paranormality and spiritual practices (including meditation, yoga, prayer, and so on)
•magic, alchemy, occult and pseudoscience
•other topics including time and/or space, logic, mathematics, and higher dimensions, affect, emotion, and mood

論文徵件說明

旅行文化:觀光、朝聖、遷徙

旅行已成為現代生活中的尋常體驗。但是,由於 2020 年新冠疫情引發的全球危機,國際旅行甚至國內遷徙已不再是理所當然的權利。本屆會議旨在藉此機會批判性地反思人類旅行和遷移的歷史和本質,探索身體和智識方面的旅行意涵,藉此研究未知領域、促進文化交流及靈性或宗教體驗。
不論是否出於自願,人類遷徙的經驗與人類本身的歷史一樣古老。自遠古時代以來,各種文化的史詩文獻探索遷徙活動在歷史、神話和宗教層面的原因和效應,包括希臘羅馬文學中特洛伊戰爭的影響,以及出埃及記所記載的事件等。
追溯到古希羅時期,帶有積極意義的文化旅行在文藝復興和啟蒙運動中達到第一個巔峰。例如十六世紀德國畫家杜勒(Albrecht Dürer, 1471-1528)出於對藝術的探求和經濟利益的雙重動機而穿越阿爾卑斯山,象徵北歐與南歐思想間意義卓著的相互交融與滋養。此後,英國年輕貴族紛紛踏上以義大利為中心的歐陸壯遊之旅,藉此拓展視野、學習禮儀和語言技能。這是有別於歐洲其它地區,由於其豐富的文化遺跡和怡人風景,義大利吸引眾多藝術家和文人之故。此外,旅客獲益於陸路和海路的基礎建設,商人也通常循這些路線往來國際之間,交易基本貿易商品。

如果用比喻的意義來理解,人們也可以用思想或靈魂旅程來代替實際的旅行。這種現象是從古希羅時期到前現代都十分普遍的一種實踐,無論是猶太教或基督教的啟示錄、



但丁(Dante Alighieri, c. 1265-1321)和彌爾頓(John Milton, 1608-1674)的精神之旅,或是塞凡提斯(Miguel de Cervantes, 1547-1616)和亞里奧斯托(Ludovico Ariosto, 1474-1533)等人的想像之旅皆然。朝聖也是備受推崇的旅行方式,無論是佛拉金(Jacopo da Voragine, c. 1230-1299)的《黃金傳說》詳述了朝聖者前往米蘭聖彼得殉道者陵墓的心靈旅程—心靈糧食—及其對朝聖者的身心療癒效果或是喬叟(Geoffrey Chaucer, c. 1340s-1400)的故事集皆是如此。


本會議徵求藝術史、歷史、文學史、文化研究、宗教學、哲學、古典學、考古學、人類學、地理學、社會科學及其它領域的研究論文。本屆會議的主旨側重於東西方文化之間的對話。我們尤其樂見亞洲和西方專家之間的學術交流。我們也特別歡迎紀念義大利詩人但丁(Dante Alighieri, c. 1265-1321)逝世七百週年的專題論文。

本屆會議的關注領域可能包括但不限於以下主題:



旅行的行為及其在藝術中的表現

旅行的行為及其在文學中的表現

文化旅遊及觀光

Cultures of Travel: Tourism, Pilgrimage, Migration
Traveling has become a natural part of modern life. As a result of the world­wide crisis caused by the COVID-19 epidemic in 2020, however, it is no longer a self-evident right to move from one country to the other or even to travel within national boundaries. The conference intends to offer an opportunity to reflect critically upon the history and nature of human mobility, exploring physical and intellectual traveling as ways of investigating unknown territories, cultural exchange, and spiritual or religious experience.
Human migration, whether by choice or involuntarily, is as old as humankind itself. Since time immemorial, epic records of various cultures explored the reasons and effects of migratory movements in history, myth, and religion, from the impacts of the sack of Troy in Greco-Roman literature to the events recorded in the Book of Exodus.
Dating back to antiquity, the positively connoted act of cultural traveling reached its first zenith during the Renaissance and Enlightenment. Albrecht Dürer’s traveling across the Alps, motivated by both artistic curiosity and economic interests, signifies the exceptional cross-fertilization of ideas between Northern and Southern Europe. Young members of the British upper class used later to undertake the legendary Grand Tour to the Continent in order to widen their horizon, to acquire manners and language skills. Unlike any other area in Europe, it was Italy that—due to its abundant cultural remains and delightful landscapes—attracted artists and literati. The travelers benefited from the infrastructures of the land and sea routes that were customarily used by merchants for transferring essential trade goods between the countries.

When understood in a figurative sense, traveling could also be substituted by a journey of the mind or soul. This phenomenon was a widespread practice from antiquity to pre-modernity and beyond, whether the spiritual journeys of the Jewish and Christian apocalypses, of Dante and Milton, or the travels of the imagination by the likes Cervantes and Ariosto. Pilgrimages too are celebrated, whether in Jacopo da Voragine's the Golden Legend, where he describes in detail such journeys in the mind—mentales diaetae—to the tomb of Saint Peter Martyr in Milan with their healing effect for both the pilgrim’s mind and body or the tales of Chaucer.
The conference calls for research from the fields of art history, history, literary history, cultural studies, religious studies, philosophy, classical studies, archaeology, anthropology, geography, social sciences, and beyond. Special attention might be given to the cultural dialogue between East and West. We especially welcome the scholarly exchange between Asian and Western experts. We would also particularly appreciate papers that mark the 700th anniversary of the death of the great Italian poet Dante Alighieri (c. 1265–1321).


Areas of interest may include, but are not limited to the following topics:

The act of traveling and its representation in the arts

The act of traveling and its representation in literature

Cultural travel and tourism
The Grand Tour
Traveling artists
Pilgrimage, physical and spiritual, religious and secular
Pilgrim paths
Travel narrative: travelogues, diaries, travel memoirs, guide books
Illustrations of travel books
Traveling between reality and imagination
Substitutes of traveling: Traveling and pilgrimage in the mind
Traveling in the armchair and its narrative
Traveling between Asia and the West
Travel record literature from Asia

Comparative perspectives on traveling in the East and West
Traveling from and to the Near East
Traveling and pilgrimage in Islamic culture
Women and traveling
Traveling and trade
Discovery of the world: Exploration of foreign countries, cosmography and chorography
Measuring the world: Maps and atlases
Traveling and (early) colonialism
Journeys on health grounds
Forced traveling: Flight, persecution, migration
Traveling and epidemics


We encourage the submission of panel proposals for groups of 3–4 speakers.



Please send a title and abstract of your proposed paper (around 300 words) along with a brief CV to TACMRS.NTNU@gmail.com by 17 January 2021.



There is no registration fee for the conference. Presenters residing in Taiwan should be members of TACMRS. The membership application form can be downloaded from the TACMRS website or can be obtained via email upon request.

Call for Papers
(By January 15, 2021)

From Socrates’ daemon to the polar spirit that pursues Coleridge’s ancient mariner to the transferrable consciousness uploaded into “cortical stacks” on the recent cyberpunk series Altered Carbon, conceptions and representations of the immaterial abound in philosophy, literature, television, and almost every other discourse and medium. In theology, angels. In mathematics, p. “In” my body, all the ideas, sensations, and qualia that I experience. Exactly what these immaterial states and entities are and how they relate to and interact with material ones has been the subject of much debate and depiction in countless texts over millennia.

Nor does contemporary theory, which informs so much of our literary analysis, dismiss the immaterial as immaterial, despite its ample focus on bodies and materiality. There is the movement known as speculative realism, which speculates on, among other things, the interior reality of nonhuman entities, asking various permutations of Thomas Nagel’s famous question, “What is it like to be a bat?” There is the movement known as new materialism, which argues that there is no definitive break between material and spiritual phenomena. These relatively recent movements were preceded, and in some cases are informed, by the many analyses of ideologies, affects, and the virtual associated with the work of Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze, and other important theorists of the twentieth century. Running even further back, psychoanalysis and the idealist tradition in philosophy can likewise be seen as developing sophisticated explanations for psychic phenomena that continue to shape our present perspectives.

If all of these approaches have a unifying theme, perhaps it is that of connection. How do the immaterial and material communicate? How are individual selves split from, or connected to, each other and larger collectives? Is the soul, as Foucault puts it, the prison of the body—and if so, how do we escape? Is the body, as Lisa Blackman puts it, immaterial—and if so, where does my body end? How is my consciousness and the consciousness of, say, a bat integrated into an ecology, a Gaia, or a world soul? How do ideologies and affects give rise to a collective mood that maintains or alters the political landscape? How does the materiality of literature, the leaves, the (digital) ink—but also its intangible forms and genres, senses and meanings—form and deform our psychology and interactions with others? The immaterial is an interface upon which infinite ideas can be cast, and we ask that you cast them in our direction. Possible paper topics on the immaterial in English and American literature include, but are not limited to, the following:

•the idealist philosophical tradition, or more specifically the relationship between particular idealist movements (e.g., Neoplatonism, German Idealism) and literature
•recent theoretical conceptions of the immaterial, such as Graham Harman’s Immaterialism or Elizabeth Grosz’s The Incorporeal, or broader movements like speculative realism and new materialism
•psychoanalysis: dreams, obsession and paranoia, traumas, drive, jouissance, etc.
•cognitive psychology and neuroscience
•religion, mysticism, and panpsychism (including the topics of ghosts, angels and spirits, demons, spiritualism, and spirituality)
•theorization of the immaterial from minority knowledge, such as theories and analyses emerging from indigenous studies, disability studies, queer studies, feminist studies, critical race studies, decolonial studies, etc.
•the material-immaterial dialectic in science fiction: cyborgs, aliens, robots, AI, VR, augmented realities, or other alternated entities)
•species in horror and fantasy
•super powers (such as precognition and telepathy), paranormality and spiritual practices (including meditation, yoga, prayer, and so on)
•magic, alchemy, occult and pseudoscience
•other topics including time and/or space, logic, mathematics, and higher dimensions, affect, emotion, and mood

We encourage individuals, as well as pre-formed panels, to submit abstracts of 300-500 words, with a title and 5 keywords, including short CVs (name, title, affiliations, selected publications, contacts) to the committee at 2021eala@gmail.com by January 15, 2021.

崑莎經典的當代風景——2021崑劇與莎劇國際學術研討會 2021 International Conference on Kunqu and Shakespeare in Contemporary Culture
日期 / 2021年(民國110年)5月21日至22日(週五、週六) Date: 21-22 May 2021  地點 / 中央大學文學院國際會議廳 National Central University, Taoyuan 主辦 / 臺灣莎士比亞學會與中央大學崑曲博物館
 
 
崑莎經典的當代風景——2021崑劇與莎劇國際學術研討會

(延長徵稿至2020年08月28日)

臺灣莎士比亞學會與中央大學崑曲博物館跨界合作,謹訂於2021年(民國110年)5月21日至22日(週五、週六)舉行國際研討會,大會主題為「崑莎經典的當代風景——2021崑劇與莎劇國際學術研討會」。本研討會冀希以跨界視野,探討莎士比亞跨界改編、研究、教學、展演時面臨的眾多挑戰、潛能、反思與展望。

崑劇與莎劇,是16世紀中西劇壇雙璧。不僅風靡當時的觀眾,至今對文學、戲劇、表演等各領域,仍有深遠的影響。崑曲在明清時期,名家名作輩出,音樂與表演體系嚴謹。其傳播遍及中國各地,因應不同市場、聲腔而有變化;並影響如京劇、越劇等後起劇種,被譽為「百戲之母」。到了當代,更有跨領域、跨文化的創作實驗。當代學者對崑曲的研究,亦不斷拓展新的方法與視角。除了崑劇史、曲學、文學、表演、舞臺美術,曲牌大數據、文獻與崑腔傳播、跨文化等諸多研究面向,古老崑劇的藝術生命與時俱進,也滋養了當代戲曲表演藝術與學術研究。

而作為英國文藝復興時期最重要的劇作家和詩人,莎士比亞不僅開創了英國文學的新局面,也帶領文藝復興時期的劇作家們回顧了古典與中世紀以降的文學傳統。在莎士比亞的劇作中,一直存在普世的觀照,以及對於他所傳承之文學脈絡的省思。莎士比亞逝世後,復辟時期與十八世紀以降,乃至當代的莎劇改編者,雖對莎劇做出各類改動,但仍忠於呈現莎劇對普世人性與文學傳統之重視。

崑劇與莎劇開創了中西戲劇文學與藝術經典,並成為當代研究不可或缺的風景。本研討會希冀以回顧與展望並重的視野,探索傳統經典在當代社會的多樣性。因此,由中央大學崑曲博物館、本會(臺灣莎士比亞學會)共同主辦,茲訂於2021年(民國110年)5月21日至22日(週五、週六),假中央大學文學院國際會議廳,舉辦「崑莎經典的當代風景──2021崑劇與莎劇國際學術研討會」。臺灣莎士比亞學會之主題,包括但不限於「莎劇」當代研究的以下面向:

1、莎士比亞之當世研究與後世傳衍
2、莎學史研究
3、莎士比亞翻譯與文本研究
4、莎士比亞表演
5、莎士比亞教學
6、莎士比亞與跨文化
7、莎士比亞與跨學科
8、莎士比亞與新媒體
9、莎士比亞與音樂
10、莎士比亞改編電影

2021 International Conference on Kunqu and Shakespeare in Contemporary Culture

Date: 21-22 May 2021
Venue: National Central University, Taoyuan

Call for Papers
The Deadline has been extended to 28th August 2020

Taiwan Shakespeare Association is delighted to announce the Call for Papers for the 2021 international and interdisciplinary conference, jointly hosted with Kunqu Opera Museum, National Central University. This conference will be held at National Central University, Taoyuan, on both 21st(Friday) and 22nd(Saturday) May 2021.

As one of the most important playwrights and poets of the Renaissance period, Shakespeare incorporated the core values of the Renaissance and earlier periods to the theatrical world and has a lasting influence on many of his contemporaries and successors in the field of literature. His influence continued to strengthen outside England with his works continuously translated, performed, and adapted to reflect concerns in other cultures and of later periods. Shakespeare’s works remain a site of negotiation between different regions and peoples, for there is profound contemporaneity at the heart of his works that speaks to subsequent generation’s engagements with Shakespeare. The conference seeks to address the manifold challenges and potentials of both Kunqu and Shakespeare in contemporary culture from both retrospective and forward-looking perspectives.

This conference aims to provide a friendly and stimulating forum in which scholars can present their work, bring together innovative ideas and trends, as well as network with other scholars in the field. We sincerely invite proposals from scholars to participate in this conference.
