Congreso / congress; 1st. INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS FOR YOUNG RESEARCHERS IN THE HUMANITIES

Journal Forma, University Institute of Culture (IUC) and the Department of Humanities are hosting the 1st. INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS FOR YOUNG RESEARCHERS IN THE HUMANITIES, which will take place in April 2012 at the Campus Ciutadella in the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain).

This event intents to set a space in which students and scholars starting their research in the Humanities will be able to contrast their results, methodologies and points of question.

It has been a long time since the studies on Humanities within the Academy have been holding intensive debates on the legitimacy of its interdisciplinary studies and the risks of a methodology which is increasingly "open" for all sorts of influences. However, being aware of this "double-edged sword", we encourage all to present their researches on this matter. To which point have these methods led us? How have they contributed to the comparative studies on art, literature, music, cinema, history, politics, philosophy, etc.?

The Scientific Board invites everyone who shares these academic interests to send their proposal in 250 words, and a CV of ca. 100 words, written in English or any Romanic language. Submissions will be received by December 30th 2011 and sent to the following mailbox: congreshumanitats.forma@upf.edu.
