Intellectual Migration and Cultural Transformation
The Movement of Ideas from German-speaking Europe to the Anglo-Saxon
World

An International conference to be held at the University of Sussex from
25-28 September 2000, organised by the Vienna Circle Institute
(University of Vienna) and the Centre for German-Jewish Studies
(University of Sussex)

The enforced migration of writers and intellectuals from Nazi-occupied
Europe has been the subject of intensive historical research. This
conference will extend the focus by analysing the impact of intellectual
migration on divergent social and cultural environments. It is sometimes
claimed that the conservatism of British institutions discouraged
radical innovation, but comparisons with the United States and other
countries reveal that there was a broad spectrum of responses, often
resulting in a fundamental transformation of intellectual paradigms and
cultural practices. The exodus of the Vienna Circle serves as a model
for the intricate relations between individual biographies,
institutional histories and theoretical constructs which accompanied the
process of reintegration. Similar patterns may be discerned in the
fields of architecture and design, social and political theory,
psychoanalysis, and art history.
