>PARODY: RE-VISIONING GOETHE
>
>The Goethe Society of North America invites proposals for a panel on
>the forms and functions of parody in and of Goethe’s work at the 2003
>MLA Convention, 27-30 December in San Diego.
>
>Goethe still provokes. 250 years after Nicolai remodeled the sorrows
>into Die Freuden des jungen Werthers, Enzensberger wrote Nieder mit
>Goethe! Eine Liebeserklärung. Parody challenges authority while
>reinscribing it. No wonder that Goethe, who himself was an avid
>practitioner of parody in his early career, later judges such
>subversive transgressions ambivalently.
>
>Parody seems to mark the intersections between invention and critique,
>adaptation and revision, combination and competition, similarity and
>difference. This panel is interested in re-visioning Goethe by
>examining parodies in diverse media and from a broad range of
>theoretical orientations and methodological approaches.
>
>With a view to Goethe, papers might focus on the pragmatics of parody:
>on effects ranging from ridicule to reverence, on forms from the comic
>to the ironic or on contexts from the 18th to the 21st centuries.
>Papers might consider Goethe in regards to a variety of parodistic
>discourses including pastiche, travesty, satire, caricature or
>burlesque. Papers might also explore more theoretical perspectives such
>as those of Schlegel, Bakhtin, Deleuze, Genette, Kristeva or Hutcheon
>in relation to Goethe and parody. Feminist perspectives are especially
>welcome!
>
>Panelists must be MLA members. Please submit 1-2 page proposals by
>March 15th, 2003 to:

>Call for Papers for a panel sponsored by the Lessing Society at the
>Annual Convention of the Modern Language Association, December 27-30,
>San Diego, CA
>
>Panel Title: Ironic Enlightenment
>Deadline for Submissions: 3/15/03
>
>Some Lessing scholarship of recent decades has depicted Lessing as
>aware of the limits of the Enlightenment project. These limits have
>been identified in several, although related, ways: for example, as the
>indefinite process of Enlightenment due to the perforce historically
>contingent status of any given standpoint; or as the impossibility to
>communicate about the conditions of communication itself. The image of
>Lessing as a proponent of a self-doubting Enlightenment poses the
>question of irony in his writings and in their relation to the works of
>other authors. Is Enlightenment an impossibility which Lessing only
>promotes ironically; or is irony itself functionalized to enable
>Enlightenment to continue despite its own undermining? How is Lessing's
>irony different from, or similar to, ironic elements in some
>contemporary theoretical discourses?
>
>Papers should address these and related questions, possible topics may
>include, but are not limited to: teleology, religion, pedagogy,
>tolerance, history, metaphor, tragedy, and ironic exchanges between
>Lessing and his contemporaries.
>
>Inquiries are welcome. Please mail or E-mail one-page proposals by

>MLA Special Session Proposal: Call for Papers for the 2003 Convention
>in San Diego
>
>Kant's Political Theory and the Literary Imagination
>
>We invite papers that examine Kant's political theory and its impact in
>philosophy, the sphere of political practice and/or the German literary
>imagination. Possible topics include but are not limited to; Kant and
>the French revolution, Kant and the political dimensions of German
>Idealism, Kant's role in the development of Romanticism, Nietzsche
>versus Kant, the political implications of Neo-Kantianism, the role of
>Kant's political thought in German philosophy early in the twentieth
>century via Lebensphilosophie, phenomenology or fundamental ontology.
>In addition we are particularly interested in seeing papers that treat
>the implications of Kant's political theory with regard to the
>development of globalization.
>
>Please send abstracts no longer than one page to Joel Freeman at
>[log in to unmask] or [log in to unmask] by March 26.

>PHOTOGRAPHY AND MEMORY
>IN CONTEMPORARY GERMAN LITERATURE
>
>Proposals are invited for a Special Session at the 2003 MLA Convention,
>27-30 December in San Diego.
>
>Through the last two decades, questions of memory have been both
>subject of scholarly scrutiny as well as of creative works. To a large
>extent, these attempt to negotiate the remembering of major traumatic
>historical events, above all the Holocaust. Although approaches and
>discourses vary greatly, the reliability of memory in the
>reconstruction of individual and collective histories remains a
>principle concern. At the same time, historical facts alone appear to
>be insufficient in the recollection and representation of the past.
>
>Almost contrary to the suspicions towards a “historical truth”, the
>need to authenticate experience seems greater than ever. Particularly
>over the last decade, German language autobiographical and
>fictionalized accounts of past lives, events, and places have appeared
>that engage the reader in an often unsettling dialogue with photographs
>and text as they propel a confrontation with the forgotten or
>repressed.
>
>This Call for Papers invites proposals investigating the highly complex
>relationships between photography and memory in contemporary German
>language literature. How does photography function in these literary
>texts? What are the present-day implications of such works? Papers may
>wish to explore questions of authorship, agency, authenticity and
>authentication, reference, representation, post-memory, narrative
>forms, trauma, melancholy, postmodernism, individual vs. collective
>history, death, absences etc.
>
>Papers taking interdisciplinary approaches are especially welcome.
>Panelists must be MLA members by 7 April.
>
>Please submit a one-page proposal and a CV by March 10th, 2003 to
