International Forum
“The Sublime and the Uncanny”

Place: New Conference Room, Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”, Sofia
Time: 2.03- 4.03.2015


sublime_uncannyThe international forum „The Sublime and the Uncanny“ will be held between the 2nd and the 4th of March 2015 in the New Conference Room of the Sofia University. It is organized by the University of Tokyo Center for Philosophy (UTCP), the Sofia Literary Theory Seminar and the Cultural Centre of Sofia University. The forum is interdisciplinary and focuses on the notions of ‘the Sublime’ and ‘das Unheimliche’, which play a crucial role not only in 20th century but also in contemporary critical discourses.

It will pose the question of the correlation and heuristic potential of these notions in the time of redefinition of the understanding of human intellect, respectively – the status of the (in)human. The forum will expose in a new perspective the topics of the „Metamorphosis and Catastrophe“ symposium, held at the beginning of November 2013.

Interventions on the topic „The Sublime and the Uncanny“ will be presented by Alexander Kiossev, Boyan Manchev, Futoshi Hoshino, Kamelia Spassova, Yuji Nishiyama, Darin Tenev, Takafumi Shimada, Bozhana Filipova, Hisato Kuriwaki, Maria Kalinova, Enyo Stoyanov, Miglena Nikolchina
The forum is open to the public. See below the detailed program.
