BeschreibungAnglo-German Mythologies Colloquium, 2006-2007

The Anglo-German Mythologies Research Colloquium was inaugurated in October of 2005, with the aim of addressing mythologies in the English and German cultural traditions from the eighteenth century to the present. The colloquium places an emphasis on literature, philosophy, culture, theory and the visual arts, and is open to all interested postgraduate students and academic staff working in these fields. During the 2005-2006 academic session, contributors to the colloquium examined selected theorisations of myth from both the German and Anglo-American traditions, focusing on thinkers such as Schelling, Nietzsche, Frazer, Eliot, Horkheimer, Adorno, Cassirer, Frye and Blumenberg. A list of the topics covered in the 2005-2006 session, as well as some historical information about the colloquium and its theoretical orientation, can be found here.

In 2006-2007, the Anglo-German Mythologies Colloquium will function as an informal work in progress forum for researchers working in this field. This undertaking is part of the preparations for the international conference on Anglo-German Mythologies that will take place at Queen Mary on 25-27 April 2007.
