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

Aesthetics is coming back.
For the past forty years, scholars across the humanities have routinely rejected aesthetic inquiry as ideological, exclusionary, or politically quietist. In American Studies particularly, this anti-aesthetic attitude has congealed into the field’s common sense. 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. “The Return of the Aesthetic in American Studies” critically takes stock of recent returns to the aesthetic and extends their scope.

The conference is free of charge to the public. We kindly to ask you to register with Regine Vatanasomboon,

Kunst als Wertschöpfung

Ab 24. Oktober, je 18-20 Uhr - Vortragsreihe zum Thema „Kunst als Wertschöpfung“ 

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.
