|Titel||Occident and Orient: Comparative Studies on the Transitional Nature of Cultural Identity and Communication between Cultures in Thought and Literary Practice|
|Beschreibung||We are pleased to announce the establishment of a working research group convened by Dr James Hodkinson (Warwick) and Professor Anil Bhatti (JNU, India). The research group is to be based around a new working relationship between Warwick University, UK and Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi.
The group envisages meeting once to twice per year on rotational basis in both Warwick New Delhi. A series of three-day symposia are being conceived, which will involve papers and roundtable discussions examining specific aspects of the group's broader. The convenors are planning a first meeting in the Spring/ Summer of 2009, which will leading to a more sustained and focussed conference, publications. A wide range of funding options is also being examined.
The group's goal is implicit in its title: scholars of Cultural Studies continue to look in ever more sophisticated ways at how European identity and cultural traditions were formed not as discrete structures, but through complex dialogues, encounters and conflicts with all that was Non–European. Similarly, scholars working outside European traditions continue to examine 'Oriental' perceptions of and responses to European traditions. The 'Occident and Orient' research group invites offers of collaboration from young and established scholars alike working in these fields, with a focus on the later eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. The project is to place particular emphasis upon the particularities of the relationship between German language culture and its relationship with cultural traditions of the Middle East and Indian subcontinent in the first instance, as this an area still under-researched in comparison to Anglo-Oriental and Franco-Oriental encounters. Offers from scholars in French and English studies are still welcome, however. The approach is to be comparative and inter-disciplinary, involving cultural and literary studies, philosophy and history. Typical research projects might involve:
* Examining discourses of communication between Occidental and Oriental writers and traditions (one culture's literary responses to literary works generated by the other)
* Examining traditions of thought and culture which seek to experiment with and cross lines of perceived cultural and linguistic difference between 'East and West' in the period
* Re-evaluating Edward Said's model by which cultural and historical processes in the West came to shape a static and silenced 'Orient'
* Examining histories and representation of Occidental-Oriental relations as a clash of fundamentally opposed civilizations
* Examining different ways by which trans-national mobility (travel, trade, correspondence, colonization and invasion) effected the construction of the Occident within the Orient, and vice versa.
The field is, however, open and the convenors look forward to productive discussions with all those who are interested. Interested parties should contact James Hodkinson of Anil Bhatti.
