>FIRST INTERNATIONAL TZVETAN TODOROV CONFERENCE IN
>HONOUR OF HIS 65TH BIRTHDAY
>
>ëTzvetan Todorov and the Future of the Human Sciencesí
>
>24ñ27 June 2004
>
>Bakhtin Centre, University of Sheffield, UK
>
>Tzvetan Todorov, who has gradually emerged as a leading
>intellectual figure in Europe, has consistently refused enclosure in
>established disciplines, and has approached human experience
>from a variety of angles. The clarity of his style and accessibility of
>his thought enhance the unifying perspective he has adopted within
>the human sciences. A growing trend in the humanities today
>consists, precisely, in questioning the boundaries erected between
>the various disciplines of the human sciences and in addressing
>the need for research in the humanities to develop in new
>directions. It is our belief that critical theory should provide the
>platform for this debate rather than remaining at a ëtheoretical
>second removeí and commenting only after the fact. It therefore
>appears imperative to create a forum for discussion of the works
>and thought of Tzvetan Todorov in a manner that would bridge the
>divides between academic disciplines, considering that Todorov is
>an outstanding exemplar of what has been achieved in overcoming
>disciplinary boundaries, and of the potential that still remains for
>doing so.
>
>The conference proposes to assess the position and contribution of
>Tzvetan Todorovís thought to the human sciences and to evaluate
>the potential of his concept of ëcritical humanismí as an alternative
>to theory. Therefore, the conference seeks to bring together
>scholars from various disciplines who engage with Todorovís work
>and to foster cross-disciplinary thought in the humanities (critical
>theory, literature, history, philosophy, philosophical anthropology,
>semioticsÖ) with a view to publishing at least one thematically
>focused volume of articles.
>
>TZVETAN TODOROV will give a public lecture in the French
>Embassy Lecture Series on 26 June 2004 and will participate in a
>roundtable with the conference participants on 27 June.
>
>Keynote speakers include:
>Stoyan ATANASSOV (University of Sofia) on ëTodorov or the
>Dialogical Self at the Crossroads of Culturesí;
>Frances FERGUSON (Johns Hopkins University) on ëTzvetan
>Todorov on Narratives and Societiesí;
>Eugene GOODHEART (Brandeis University) on ëTodorov, Berlin,
>Kolakowski and Meí;
>Robert ZARETSKY (University of Houston) on ëUncommon
>Histories: An Evening with Jean-Jacques Rousseau at the Drury
>Lane Theatreí.
>
>Papers addressing one or more of the following areas will be
>especially welcome:
>-cross-disciplinarity as the future of the human sciences
>-critical humanism: new form of humanism or well-tempered
>liberal humanism ?
>-literature as privileged medium for understanding human
>experience

>conference and proposals for panels (see guidelines below) are
