Apocalyptic Thinking

The workshop rethinks the philological, historical and theo-political implications for apocalyptic thinking. Considering both textual sources and visual arts, the papers will explore the limitations of the category of apocalyptic across multiple traditions and cultural contexts. In our discussions we will look for new frameworks and categories to address the depth and breadth of phenomena that the concept of apocalyptic has drawn together.
