Interdisciplinary Workshop at the University of Tuebingen

23 -25 April 2009

Universität Tübingen, Neuphilologie, Wilhelmstr. 50, 72074 Tübingen

Organisation: Prof. Dr. Sabine Döring, Dr. Catrin Misselhorn, Prof. Dr. Schamma Schahadat, Dr. Irina Wutsdorff

Within the framework of this workshop issues concerning the ethical assessment of works of literature will be discussed from a philosophical as well as a literary perspective. Both Berys Gaut and Daniel Jacobson have recently provided controversial answers to the question whether, if at all, moral criteria should play any role in assessing pieces of art. With regard to literature the following questions ensue: In which way are ethical topoi and issues inscribed in literary works of art? What are the poetological consequences of ethical claims on literature as is predominantly the case in Russian culture?
