Academics from the Centre for the Philosophy of History at St Mary’s University, Twickenham will join forces with the University of Leeds to deliver a symposium on Aesthetics, Postmodernism and the ‘before now’ on Tuesday 1st July. St Mary’s lecturers Claire Norton and Mark Donnelly have teamed up with Michael J Kelly from the University of Leeds for the one day event. The symposium will explore the aesthetic possibilities for history writing in theory and in practice. Contributors will respond to narrativist theories of history, developments in contemporary literary theory, and experimental forms of narrating or performing pasts in the visual arts. A host of guest speakers will deliver lectures throughout the day, including Paul Antick and Helena Hammond from the University of Roehampton; Adi Efal from the University of Koln; Robert Doran from Rochester University and Kalle Pihlainen from Åbo Akademi University and University of Turku. Claire Norton said, “We are delighted to be working with colleagues from different institutions and disciplines on this inaugural symposium for the Centre for the Philosophy of History. It promises to be an excellent day of discussion and thought.” The free symposium will take place in the Senior Common Room at St Mary’s Strawberry Hill campus and is open to all.
