>Further Information about fragment
>One of the initial excitements of proposing this conference was the thought
>of encompassing a huge time period and a disciplinary range through the
>investigation of the fragment. Our intention is to cross conventional
>boundaries of chronology and discipline, and in so doing we hope to further
>scholarship on the fragment in a productive way.
>
>This conference seeks to examine the links and disparities between concepts
>of the fragment in different disciplines, and in relation to various
>historical periods. A key objective is to foster interdisciplinary
>discussion and the potential for dynamic collaborative research. By opening
>exchange between research- and practice-based disciplines, and between
>materialist and conceptual approaches, the conference aims to respond to a
>widespread but heterogeneous interest in the fragment, and to redefine its
>uses and significance in contemporary scholarly and creative work.
>We anticipate that dialogue around ėthe fragmentķ will include (but not be
>limited to) subjects emphasising: histories of art, medicine and the body,
>memory and remembrance, museology, archaeologies of knowledge, modernist and
>postmodern theory, as well as work in more canonical literary studies. In
>addition to academic papers, we welcome proposals for discussion panels,
>performances/installations, or creative workshops.
