Students of the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Belgrade would like to invite students of all levels to the second annual International Interdisciplinary Conference on Art which will be held from the 8th to the 10th of May 2019 at the Faculty of Philosophy in Belgrade.

The main goal of this Conference is to create a network of students and young scholars with different disciplinary backgrounds that are dealing with various aspects of art research. This includes connections on a social level – by giving the participants a chance to communicate, exchange ideas, contacts and much more, and on a theoretical level – by providing them with insight into different disciplines’ stances, terminology, analysis tools, process of choosing a certain research problem etc. It is our belief that this kind of cooperation would provide the foundations for further international and interdisciplinary partnership and it would help create a common framework which would enhance the quality of research of art.

This year’s theme of the Conference is Interpretation in Arts and Humanities. We see this theme as a continuation of last year’s conference (Autonomy in Art and Humanities) in the following sense. We believe that across the art-research disciplines exists what seems to be “neutral” theoretical concepts such as “autonomy”, “interpretation”, “evaluation”, “definition” etc. that, when subjected to closer examination, appears to be not so neutral, but strongly context- or framework-dependent instead. It is also our belief that this leads to the lack of interdisciplinary communication, conceptual and methodological confusion,and general misunderstanding. All of this is the main reason we have decided to closely examine those concepts one by one on our annual conferences by encouraging students and young scholars to write and discuss about this issue during three days of their stay in Belgrade. Applicants are, of course, not obliged to address this general theoretical problem in their papers. The reason why we organize this conference after all is exactly because we don't think it is a one man job. We expect the solution not to be found in a single paper, but rather to emerge from the interaction on the conference.
