>Literature and Philosophy after Kant:
>Re-evaluating Early German Romanticism
>
>       In recent years the work of the early German Romantics has drawn
>increased attention from American scholars.  The writings of Novalis,
>H–lderlin, Schleiermacher, and the Schlegel brothers are attracting
>interest not only from students of German literature but across a wide
>range of academic disciplines.  To literary scholars the Romantics are
>important because of their contribution to the development of contemporary
>literary theory.  To philosophers and historians of ideas, they are a
>vital link between the critical philosophy of Immanuel Kant and the
>idealism of Fichte, Schelling, and Hegel.
>       ėLiterature and Philosophy after Kant: Re-evaluating Early German
>Romanticismî is intended to advance this already lively discussion and
>foster exchange between the disciplines of literature and philosophy.  The
>conference will be held Friday and Saturday, June 11 and 12, 2004, at
>George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.  Papers are welcome on all
>topics relating to the interpretation of early German Romanticism,
>especially its relation to German philosophy from Kant to Hegel, and from
>scholars in philosophy and literary studies.  There will be two plenary
>sessions for presentations by Prof. Karl Ameriks of the University of
>Notre Dame and Prof. Jane Kneller of Colorado State University.  Those
>interested in participating should send an abstract of not more than 500
>words (for a paper presentation of 30 minutes, plus discussion) to: Ted
>Kinnaman, Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies, George Mason
>University 3F1, Fairfax, VA 22030, or by email to [log in to unmask]
