想像與再現:古代到十七世紀對世外桃源阿卡迪亞的呈現

以阿卡迪亞為典型的黃金時期概念最早出現在古希臘神話故事,赫西俄德將阿卡迪亞描寫為人類與自然和諧共存的理想世界,開啟世人對阿卡迪亞的想像由真實存在的地理空間轉化成幻(夢)想之境;維吉爾的牧羊田園詩樹立往後文人與藝術家融合想像並賦予阿卡迪亞不同意涵的典範,使阿卡迪亞成為文學與藝術創作中常見的題材。中世紀在基督教思維的影響下阿卡迪亞成為具宗教意義的人間天堂或閉鎖的庭園(Hortus conclusus)的象徵。此外,阿卡迪亞同時承載世人對人與自然關係、異域及身後世界的探索與想像。

本屆國際研討會將以「想像與再現」為主題,企圖探討「世外桃源阿卡迪亞」在文化與象徵上,包括被想像、被建構、被轉化及寓喻化的多元概念,及其在神話、哲學、宗教、歷史、藝術、文學與社會文化研究等範疇的意涵。

議題包含(但不限於):

  • 人與自然的關係
  • 生態關懷與生態批評
  • 夢境與幻想或虛與實
  • 世界的形塑(世界觀)
  • 情愛的探究
  • 探索、真實與想像、天堂與異域風情
  • 空間、儀式與社會關係
  • 風景畫(locus amoenuslocus terribilis
  • 閉鎖的花園(hortus conclusus)、庭園建築概念或人間天堂
  • 別墅文化(villa culture)、城市與鄉野
  • 牧羊田園詩

The 11th Conference of the Taiwan Association of Classical, Medieval and Renaissance Studies

20-21 October 2017

Call for Papers

Imagination and Representation: Descriptions of Arcadia from Antiquity to Pre-Modernity

The notion of a Golden Age, centred in the ancient region of Arcadia, is already present in the mythology of the ancient Greeks. Hesiod is the first writer to describe this idealized place where men and women lived in perfect harmony with nature and with themselves, beginning a process in which Arcadia was transformed from a real geographical space into a realm of fantasy. Later, Virgil sets his pastoral poems in Arcadia, initiating a tradition that will be followed by many writers and artists who merge different imaginings to conjure up new meanings. In time, Arcadia became one of the most common themes in literary and artistic creation. Under the influence of Christian thought, Arcadia gained a religious significance, being identified with the Earthly Paradise and the hortus conclusus. Human exploration and the imagining of different worlds have also been embodied in the idea of Arcadia, as has the relationship between humanity and nature.

This conference proposes to explore cultural and symbolic meanings in representations of Arcadia from a variety of perspectives including mythology, religion, philosophy, history, art, literary and cultural studies.

Topics for consideration may include (but are not limited to):

  • Interrelationship between human beings and nature
  • Eco-poetics and eco-criticism
  • Dream and fantasy, or fiction and reality
  • The image of the world (world-conception)
  • Notions of (idealised) love
  • Exploration, real and imaginary, the world beyond and foreign exoticism
  • Space, ritual, and social relations
  • Landscape (locus amoenus or locus terribilis)
  • The hortus conclusus, gardens, and the Earthly Paradise
  • Utopias and dystopias
  • Villa culture, cities and the countryside
  • Bucolic and pastoral poetry
