3-4 October 2019 in Odense
Organized by Niels Bohr Professor Rita Felski, Associate Professor Anne-Marie Søndergaard Christensen and Associate Professor Camilla Schwartz
Sponsored by the Niels Bohr Professorship, "Uses of Literature: The Social Dimensions of Literature"
What is there left to say about love? Endlessly invoked, celebrated, assailed, abused, and parodied, love has been hailed as the meaning of life and disdained as the ultimate cliché. This conference is inspired by the conviction that love is poised to become a focus of renewed interest in the humanities. We anticipate two main focal points for the conference, without excluding other options:
• Love in contemporary literature, art, and culture
• Love of literature and art.
