This project has received funding and support from the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, University of Ottawa, Université Paris Cité, USPC (Université Sorbonne Paris Cité), and the CERILAC (Centre d’Études et de Recherches Interdisciplinaires de l’UFR Lettres, Arts, Cinéma, URP 441).
The originality of this project consists in its foundational oxymoron: investigating the connections between experience and language in the specific case of mystical literature, a literary genre dealing with the Unspeakable itself. The in-communicability of the mystical experience is a fruitful research field for developing new frameworks in the areas of comparative literature, religious studies, philosophy of emotions, philosophy of language, and theory of sensibility.
