Circular and Vectorial Trends in Cultural Developments

This workshop was part of the Global Humanities Campus 2014 and brought together all participants of the network's mobility program of the year 2014.

The main objective of the two-day workshop was to facilitate a discussion regarding the historical incidence, the role, as well as the function of the two different conceptualizations of time on a more abstract level. As part of the workshop, seminars, combined with lectures, were taught by senior professors from the participating institutions. The workshop was open to the public.
