This conference is dedicated to discussion of the transdisciplinary legacies of early German Romanticism in contemporary theory and practice in the arts and humanities, with particular reference to the construction of the concepts ‘art’ and ‘the new’. Themes to be discussed include: Romanticism and disciplinarity; aesthetics as a transdisciplinary field; transdisciplinary constructions of art, nature and the new; medium, media and transmedia as transdisciplinary concepts.
This conference is part of the AHRC-funded Project 'Transdisciplinarity and the Humanities'. The conference is organised by the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy, Kingston University in conjunction with the Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies, School of Advanced Study, University of London.
