The Institute for Literary Studies of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences organises a workshop on 23 November 2018 on applied anthropological aesthetics around 1800. The event will be held at the Library and Information Centre of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and will consist of two parts. The conference presentations will focus on the contemporary applications of the Central European theories of aesthetics at the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries, followed by book launches in the afternoon.

The conference presentations will be given by Botond Csuka, Márton Szilágyi, Gergely Fórizs, Carsten Zelle and Tomáš Hlobil. During the afternoon, Sandra Richter’s book (Eine Weltgeschichte der deutschprachigen Literatur) will be presented by Magdolna Orosz (Eötvös Loránd University) and Tomáš Hlobil’s book (Geschmacksbildung im Nationalinteresse. Die Anfänge der Prager Universitätsästhetik im mitteleuropäischen Kulturraum 1763–1805; Geschmacksbildung im Nationalinteresse II.
