Video Conference: Stylistics Past and Present: Interdisciplinary Transformations of a Method in the Humanities

Date: 14 – 15 October 2021
Convenor: Elisa Ronzheimer (Bielefeld, GER)

Matters of style have gained renewed attention in recent years. The workshop explores this present interest from an interdisciplinary perspective, investigating the history of stylistic methods in the humanities. Its objective is to understand in what ways the methodological exchange between the disciplines has shaped stylistic practices throughout the twentieth century. The exploration of the transformations that stylistics has undergone as the notion of style traversed the fields of art history, philosophy, history as well as literature and cultural studies opens up new perspectives on recent developments in the theory and methodology of style. Asking about the past and present states of stylistics also implies engaging in methodological issues currently discussed in the Digital Humanities.
