Baum-Geschichten: 19 Mai 2017

Ein Spaziergang von Botanik zu Biographie Während eines Spaziergangs, der uns in der Stadt Zürich zu Bäumen aus verschiedenen Ländern führen wird, treffen wir auf Performances und Geschichten, die von Zürchern mit globalen Wurzeln veranstaltet und erzählt werden. In Zürich, einer kosmopolitischen Metropole, gedeihen hunderte von Baumarten. Einige Vertreter leben hier bereits seit Tausenden von Jahren, andere erst seit kurzer Zeit. Wir laden eine kleine Gruppe von Zürchern, die, wie die Bäume globale Wurzeln aufweisen, ein, einen Baum zu wählen, der ihr/ sein Herkunftsland repräsentiert. Was bedeutet es, hier in Zürich einem Baum aus dem eigenen Heimatland zu begegnen? Fühlt sich der Anblick angenehm an? Löst er Freude oder Heimweh aus? Oder beides? Führt der Anblick zu einer stärkeren Verwurzelung oder führt er zur Entfremdung? Das Projekt zielt darauf ab, die öffentliche Wahrnehmung der globalen Natur Zürichs zu schärfen und den Dialog zu Unterscheidungen wie einheimisch versus nicht einheimisch in der Natur anzuregen....

Shifting Grounds: Literature, Culture and Spatial Phenomenologies

Shifting Grounds: Literature, Culture and Spatial Phenomenologies

This international conference responds to the recent return of phenomenological perspectives in literary and cultural criticism, and in the field of spatiality in particular. It aims to probe how a focus on sensory impressions and “the perspective of experience” (Yi-Fu Tuan) can enhance our understanding of literary and cultural spaces. Questions of space and place have always been at the heart of phenomenological enquiry. Phenomenology played an important role in the first half of the twentieth century when philosophers like Martin Heidegger, Maurice Merleau-Ponty and Henri Bergson privileged the embodied self of perception and lived experience over the rational self of Western philosophy. Heidegger’s focus on dwelling and being-in-the-world and Merleau-Ponty’s interest in the attainment of subjectivity through embodied spatiality prepared the ground for works of literary and cultural analysis like Gaston Bachelard’s study of intimate spaces in The Poetics of Space. Phenomenology fell out of grace with the advent of cultural semiotics, post-structuralism and postmodern theory, which critiqued phenomenology for its perceived privileging of a unified subjectivity and for its apparent bracketing of the social and ideological dimensions of space (as theorized by critics like Yuri Lotman, Henri Lefebvre, Michel Foucault, Edward Soja and Fredric Jameson). But phenomenology soon returned with a difference: already in the eighties, groundbreaking works like Michel de Certeau’s The Practice of Everyday Life and Paul Carter’s The Road to Botany Bay foregrounded the spatial practices of individuals precisely as a way of challenging and complicating the hierarchically produced and power-laden spaces of modernity. More recently, phenomenological perspectives have had a remarkable revival in a number of disciplines and theoretical movements interested in the...
