International Workshop: Bureaucratic Encounters

When: 15-16 June 2018. Where: University of Vienna (Lecture Hall 6, Lower Ground floor), Universitätsring 1, 1010 Vienna.

Bureaucracy is all around us and has a tendency to expand. In the late 19th century the state began to exercise increasingly more control and influence over its citizens, for example by imposing rules of registration and identification. Citizens, for their part, responded to the rise of bureaucracy by making use of what the state offered and prescribed for their own purposes. Bureaucracy, however, is not confined to the state authorities: practices from public administration are being borrowed by private organizations, and vice versa. As the conference programme demonstrates, bureaucracy is not a phenomenon existing only in the so-called Western world. The contributions coming from historians, sociologists and social anthropologists span over a period from the early 19th century to the present. They address bureaucratic encounters taking place in (and sometimes also between) Austria, Australia, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Poland, Romania, the Russian and the Habsburg Empires, and Switzerland, thereby allowing for comparative and interdisciplinary approaches.

The program and all further details can be found in the folder.

Conference: (Re)Creating a Global Literary Canon

Organised by Peggy Levitt and Wiebke Sievers 

14th-15th December 2017, University of Vienna

Our conference seeks to explore how and under what conditions canons are successfully challenged and how cultural production is being sanctified in different ways. What is it that enables an author from the cultural periphery to ascend from national to regional or global fame? What new forms of codification are emerging? Our approach is consciously interdisciplinary. We bring comparative and world literature scholars in dialogue with sociologists and anthropologists. The conference also includes a public reading and discussion with Anna Kim and Fiston Mwanza Mujila.

The conference language is English.

Please find the conference programme here: Programme.

If you are interested in attending the conference, we ask you kindly to register online by no later than 1 December 2017Registration.
