Topic areas


In recent years, the notion of resonance has gained a prominent place in contemporary thought for its plasticity in representing commonalities, interactions, and reverberations in relational ontologies. However, its heuristic potential for thinking and grounding the dynamism of “presencing absence” has yet to be fully explored. By addressing the notion of resonance from different disciplinary perspectives, this one-day workshop aims to contribute to an ongoing dialogue in interdisciplinary research between philosophers and theorists, performers, artists, and practice-based art scholars.

We welcome paper presentations that address the notion of resonance and/or absence in ways that foster interdisciplinary dialogues, either in a scholarly spirit or from a first-person experience. In particular, but not limited to, those that address philosophical and theoretical contributions on:

  • Moods, affective spaces, and atmospheres 
  • Reflections on the body, movement, and spatialization 
  • Memory and spectres 
  • Art and activism 
  • Other related topics in current research advances in the visual and performative arts

Interested speakers should submit a 250-word abstract and a brief biographical note (max. 100 words) to [email protected] with the subject “RESONANCE Workshop” by May 20th, 2024. Decisions will be announced on May 22nd. The working language of the workshop will be English. The event has no registration or fees.
