Conference: “Medical Knowledge and its 'Sitz im Leben': Body and Horror in Antiquity”

Nov 18, 2021 to Nov 20, 2021

Hybrid

Conference: “Medical Knowledge and its 'Sitz im Leben': Body and Horror in Antiquity”

This conference explores ancient and modern concepts of horror with reference to the human body. The aim is to examine how the body processes, affectively as well as cognitively, horrifying experiences and how it can turn itself into a source of horror, e.g. in contexts of sickness and death. While we are firmly aware of the fact that ‘horror’ as a largely post-Romantic concept is not unproblematic when applied to Greek and Latin texts, we will try to show that its classical antecedents and roots must be considered as they might shed light on the ways in which the horrific, as a category that shapes our encounter with various forms of art but also with life itself, is understood today.

Confirmed speakers:
Noel Carroll (Graduate Center, City University of New York, USA)
Giulia Maria Chesi (Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, Germany)  
Greg Eghigian (Penn State University)      
Debbie Felton (University of Massachusetts Amherst, USA)

Date: 18-20 November 2021
