From 15 till 17 September 2022, the second EUTIM Annual Conference “Time Out of Joint: Literary (Re)Visions of Time in Eastern and Central Europe” will take place at Potsdam University and is accessible via Zoom. The event is curated by Alexander Wöll, Principal Investigator at EUTIM with the Focus theme “Small Literatures and Neighborhood”.

This conference will explore literary imaginations of time in Eastern and Central Europe in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. At the centre of this investigation will be the pregnant notion of “non-simultaneity”, which calls into question the many assumptions commonly attached to time such as: that it is distributed equally, that it unfolds in a linear fashion, that the progression of time inevitably engenders progress and brings closer the future, and that the past remains behind. In this conference, we seek to problematise these ideas by focusing on the literatures of Eastern and Central Europe and regarding the temporalities that they offer in their own right.

Venue: Senate Hall (Senatssaal) of the University of Potsdam, Campus Neues Palais, House 9, Room 1.03
