"Hegel on Culture as 'Bildung'"

In this paper Prof. Novakovic reconstructs Hegel's conception of cultural participation by looking at his account of "Bildung,” a notoriously untranslatable term, in the Phenomenology of Spirit. "Bildung" for Hegel is a two-fold process: it shapes a shared culture and cultivates the individual at one and the same time. His account of "Bildung," moreover, shows the ways in which reflection is an integral part of this process, suggesting that cultural participation is never merely a habitual, but always also a reflective activity.

Winter Colloquium 2013

The main theme of Winter Colloquium 2013 will be our shared mission of teaching. Most of the sessions will be panel presentations by our own teaching staff, from TAs to full professors, on various aspects of teaching, notably including the initiatives our department has taken to create core courses (CPLT 1, 2, and 193) for our undergraduates. 

The colloquium will also feature special lectures by Professor George Slusser, curator emeritus of UCR’s Eaton Collection of Science Fiction and Fantasy, by Carlos Cortes, professor emeritus of History, and the winner of the 2013 Barricelli Award. 

It is an exciting program and we hope everyone will attend. Sessions will begin at 11:10 a.m. and extend until 12:30 p.m., or 1:00 at the latest. People who have classes at 12:00 can of course take their leaves at that time. All sessions will be in the department conference room (HMNSS 2412).
