Imagination - Inspiration - Interpretation



is pleased to announce a


for the international conference for doctoral students


Venue and date: 9th November 2022

in the building of the

Catholic Theological Faculty of Charles University

(in case of the unfavorable epidemiological situation in the online space)



This international conference is intended for all Czech and international doctoral students on full-time or part-time study programmes in the fields of art history, theology, literature, music, and other cultural and historical disciplines. The conference aims to enable students to present the results of their research so far, to introduce new and current insights based on their work on their dissertation, to compare their methodological approaches, and thus to support their research activities.

The conference theme "IMAGINATION - INSPIRATION - INTERPRETATION" offers space for grasping the creative process. Imagination and inspiration that need to be interpreted as human faculties stimulating creativity.

The theme of the conference was deliberately chosen so as to include the broadest possible circle of doctoral students from humanities study programmes and to provide sufficient scope for choosing a theme and elaborating it. Papers submitted for the conference can deal with related themes in the fields of theology, history, the visual arts, cultural history, literature, music, and so on. They will be assessed primarily on the correct choice of methodical approach in dealing with the individual theme and the specialist quality of their conception. The emphasis will be placed on publishing completely new findings rather than on compilation work.

Like last year, we will welcome a prominent guest to our Faculty for the conference. A special lecture will be given during the conference. You are cordially invited to attend the whole of the conference, and in particular, the special lecture, whose theme and speaker will be made known in advance.

Further information:

The various papers presented at the conference will be divided into several sections according to their subject. Twenty minutes will be allowed for each paper, and sufficient time will be devoted to discussion on each theme.

The number of active participants at the conference will be limited by the size of the different sections. In case of an unfavorable epidemiological situation, the conference will be moved to the online space (platform MS Teams).
