An interdisciplinary conference at the University of Virginia explored one of Europe's quintessential authors, Franz Kafka, between February 25-27, 2015. The three day event included lectures, discussions and film screenings.
100 years after the first publication of the "Metamorphosis" and after the emergence of "The Trial", Franz Kafka is one of the most interpreted authors of European modernism, but still one of the enigmatic. It seems that everybody is looking for the final clue to "The Castle" but nobody has found it yet. The fascination continues and even after a century of reception history, research is ongoing.
