The Return of the Aesthetic in American Studies - International Conference, Goethe University Frankfurt, 29.11.2018 – 01.12.2018

“The Return of the Aesthetic in American Studies” is designed as an international milestone conference for research in aesthetics in American Studies. The topic’s urgency derives from the disciplinary history of American Studies. During the last decades, scholars within the discipline have routinely rejected aesthetic inquiry as ideological, exclusionary, or politically quietist. Only in the most recent past have several scholars begun to pay renewed attention to the aesthetic and to rethink its relationship to the spheres of the social, economic, and political. Our conference aims to critically take stock of recent returns to the aesthetic and to significantly extend their scope. For this purpose, the conference assembles leading Americanist scholars of aesthetics from the United States and Europe.

Memory Studies

Memory Studies is an international and interdisciplinary convergence field. It addresses – broadly speaking – the interplay of past and present in sociocultural contexts. Memory Studies is interested in the social shape of individual memory as well as in the collective generation of past, present, and future.
The Frankfurt Memory Studies Platform (FMSP) is an initiative of the Forschungszentrum für Historische Geisteswissenschaften (FzHG). It brings together people and projects from history, sociology, literature, arts, media studies, psychology, and other relevant disciplines in a dialogue about memory. It wants to shape the future of memory studies by developing and discussing new research questions and new methodologies.
The activities of the FMSP revolve around three main Research LinesTranscultural Memory, the Mediality of Memory, and Memory and Narrative.
