15th – 16th January 2016, University of Hamburg

Even though philosophy and literary studies share many common issues, topics, and questions, genuine exchange and cooperation between the two disciplines has been rather moderate. This is unfortunate for both parties because each can profit immensely from the other. Generally speaking, philosophy provides the methodological means to investigate concepts and their structure, and it offers pertinent research concerning foundational questions of literary studies, most prominently in aesthetics, metaphysics and philosophy of language. Thus, much theoretical and some empirical work in literary studies could benefit directly or indirectly from philosophy. Literary studies, on the other hand, supplies empirical research and the phenomenological basis for theorizing in the first place, and it points to aspects easily overlooked by theorists, like the richness of phenomena that constitutes aesthetic quality, or the historical background of literary works. Hence, it provides a pool and a corrective for philosophical research.

Our series of workshops aims to capitalize on this potential by bringing philosophers and literary scholars working on similar issues together. We believe that both parties can profit a lot from an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas, perspectives and data. The first workshop of this series, in winter 2014, concentrated on a specific topic at the intersection of the fields: narratological concepts and interpretation. This time we have decided to place no restrictions on contributions but that they tackle issues which are of interest both to philosophers and to literary scholars.
