April 12-14, 2018 at the University of Göttingen

For H.P. Lovecraft, the weird conveys "a subtle attitude of awed listening, as if for the beating of black wings or the scratching of outside shapes and entities on the known universe’s utmost rim." Taking its cue from Lovecraft’s enduringly influential conceptualization, this conference examines and broadens the notion of weirdness towards an ecology and geography of the weird as a new field of theoretical and practical resonances. 
The conference will be held at the University of Göttingen from April 12-14, 2018 and will take place at the Convention Center by the Observatory (Tagungszentrum an der Sternwarte), Geismar Landstr. 11, 37083 Göttingen. For registration and further information, please see the conference homepage:
