>>Title:  "Shouldn't we Abolish Aesthetics?"-Brecht's use of Sociology
>>
>>In order to understand Brecht, the poet and 
>>playwright, one ought to know the influence 
>>sociology had on Brecht as a man of practical 
>>theatre.  "The sociologist is the man for us", 
>>he states in his famous letter "Sollten wir 
>>nicht die Aesthetik liquidieren?" (Berliner 
>>Börsen-Courier, 2 June 1927)
>>
>>Brecht was a radical reformer determined to 
>>make audiences think-determined to drive home 
>>his points by any and every theatrical device 
>>at this disposal, demanding that audiences 
>>remain awake and critical, not hypnotized by 
>>the theatrical conventions.  He called for 
>>direct presentation, not illusion; for distance 
>>(the Alienation Effect), not empathy.  His 
>>contemporaries, "traditional" or "experimental" 
>>in their views, ran into collision with 
>>Brecht's concept of "epic theatre", its 
>>amendments and after-thoughts.  And Brecht did 
>>everything to provoke them to take a stand.
>>
>>As central challenges remain:
>>
>>How do Brecht's plays, their production and 
>>reception, and his theatrical theory relate to 
>>(and are formed by) political, historical, and 
>>social forces?
>>
>>This panel seeks to draw upon the disciplines 
>>of theatre and the social sciences towards 
>>investigating Brecht's oeuvre along 
>>sociological lines.  We welcome papers that 
>>attempt to configure Brecht within a 
>>socio/cultural framework, which could include 
>>correlative fields such as economics, political 
>>science, and historicism.
>>
>>
>>
>>Proposals to both:

>>Prof. Dr. Heinz-Uwe Haus, Dept. of Theatre, 
>>University of Delaware, Newark, DE 19716;

>>LITERATURE (Section 4)
>>
>>Chairs:  Heinz-Uwe Haus/Martina Kolb
>>
>>Title:  Theater Outside Theater
>>
>>Art is mightier than the quest for knowledge, 
>>writes Nietzsche in The Pathos of Truth, an 
>>essay on the struggle of culture (and toward 
>>fame), in which truth is described as a 
>>vanishing fiction.  In The Birth of Tragedy, 
>>Nietzsche assimilates Hamlet to his idea of the 
>>Dionysian man-the same Hamlet that Freud, three 
>>decades later, presents as the repressed modern 
>>man par excellence.  Freud and Nietzsche are 
>>but two examples of a great variety of 
>>international writers, who turn to theatrically 
>>transmitted dilemmas, while formulating their 
>>doubts and fears about positivistic knowledge. 
>>Their skepticism fosters a dialogue between 
>>science and art, in which theatrical expression 
>>plays a crucial role.
>>
>>Wherever I go, the poet has been there before 
>>me, states Freud, the aficionado of 
>>international texts of primarily theatrical 
>>orientation.  Against the background of the 
>>theater as a precedent to philosophy and 
>>science, this workshop invites papers on any 
>>aspect of the presence of the theater beyond 
>>the theater, papers addressing issues around 
>>the emblematic image of the theatrum mundi, 
>>Shakespeare's metaphor of the world as stage, 
>>or Brecht's Street Scene-papers which speak to 
>>the receptive as well as the creative 
>>principles of theatrical metaphor outside the 
>>theater - of dramatic expressiveness beyond the 
>>stage.
>>
>>
>>
>>Proposals to both:
>>
>>Prof. Dr. Heinz-Uwe Haus, Dept. of Theatre, 
>>University of Delaware, Newark, DE 19716; 
>>e-mail: <>[log in to unmask] and Prof. Dr. Martina

>>
>>
>>LITERATURE (Section 4)
>>
>>Chairs:  Heinz-Uwe Haus/Martina Kolb
>>
>>Title:  Poetry, Religion, and Diversity:  Cross Cultural Perspectives
>>
>>An experience which most poets-and not only 
>>poets-are probably undergoing is doubt about 
>>the authenticity of values. They seem to feel 
>>rational empiricism like acid eating away at 
>>any nonutilitarian concept of life's 
>>purposes-whether the concept stems from 
>>patriotism, morals, religion, or love.  Poetry 
>>weds faith to doubt. It also ties the depth and 
>>pathos of religiosity to the openness and 
>>discernment of narration.
>>
>>The workshop will examine how poetry creates 
>>unique possibilities for "circumventing the 
>>mistruths that shape us as subjects and which 
>>organize our relations with the world and God" 
>>(Klitos Ioannides).
>>
>>In recent years, poetry has "dialecticized" the 
>>Judeo-Christian mindscape through the use of 
>>interdisciplinary and cross-cultural 
>>references, which have opened up new and highly 
>>controversial issues, challenging previous 
>>paradigms and creating fresh field of study. 
>>The wide response to the panel discussion of 
>>the 2008 ISSEI conference at the University of 
>>Helsinki - "The Sacred in European Mindscape" - 
>>as well as Klitos Iaonnides' poetry reading in 
>>one of the workshops demonstrated a new 
>>understanding for believing in God in a climate 
>>dominated by Logical Positivism. Both events 
>>seeked to assess to what extent the 
>>understandings and meanings of sacred issues 
>>are fixed, universal and/or non-negotiable, or 
>>to what extent they are malleable possibilities 
>>for intercultural dialogue and even 
>>understanding. To what extent can "the sacred" 
>>create connections and linkages between 
>>"different" cultures and worldviews?
>>
>>Present-day questions of cultural memory and 
>>religious phenomena, the nature of biblical 
>>texts and social thought all take their 
>>impulses from the flux of natural life-"what is 
>>past, or passing, or to come"-but are 
>>themselves "out of nature" in so far as the 
>>material questioned has a universal validity 
>>and is not subject to decay.
>>
>>The workshop invites both, poets and scholars, 
>>to present examples of their work and/or 
>>analyzes of the subject.
>>
>>
>>
>>Proposals to:
>>
>>Prof. Dr. Heinz-Uwe Haus, Dept. of Theatre, 
>>University of Delaware, Newark, DE 19716;

>>
>>POLITICS (Section 2)
>>
>>Chair:  Heinz-Uwe Haus
>>
>>Title:  Threshold of European Culture: 
>>Identity, Unification, And Transnationalism
>>
>>In recent years political scientists and 
>>historians have made considerable progress in 
>>understanding how the idea of a European 
>>community of shared values and a shared 
>>political culture emerged during and after 
>>World War II.  This recent historical research 
>>argues that the modern idea of Western identity 
>>is a relatively recent phenomenon.  In part it 
>>re-appropriated older European concepts of 
>>otherness that seemed to go back to antiquity 
>>(such as a supposed age-old East/West divide).
>>
>>The workshop will explore the three closely 
>>related topics that contest received attitudes 
>>about cultural identity.  Complementary 
>>challenges come from within the Western 
>>thought: the critique of orthodox positions on 
>>subjectivity and the cultural meltdown that 
>>accompanied fascism, nazism and communism.
>>
>>Covering theory, research and practice, the 
>>participants are invited to provide in-depth 
>>analysis of the structural, strategic and 
>>cultural factors, which influence policies and 
>>doctrines of the new EU order.
>>
>>Key themes, such as rights, public 
>>deliberation, law and democracy, and how they 
>>interrelate, will encompass the hopes and 
>>social conflicts of Europe's past eras, as well 
>>as prospects for the coming century.
>>
>>
