Call for Papers

The graduate students of the Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures
at the University of Kansas (Graduate Association of German Students V GAGS)
are announcing a call for papers for their 9th annual interdisciplinary
conference to be held on

March 11th-12th, 2005 in Lawrence, Kansas.

Abstracts from graduate students and scholars from the humanities and social
sciences are welcome.  This year, we encourage submissions on the topic of

                                Wandel durch die Zeit

How do changes occur as time elapses?
How do historical events influence linguistic, literary and political
phenomena?
In what way do characteristics of a certain period determine developments in
the above-mentioned fields?

Any German or German-related topic is welcome.  Possible topics may include,
but are not limited to, critical examinations of the following:

      in the area of philology and linguistics:
-       what are diachronic developments of the language and what are the
significant linguistic phenomena that gave rise to these, how did a particular
language influence German and why
-       what was the role of society, specific events (such as social upheavals), or
people in these changes, what were attempts to prevent (or stimulate) language
change and what was their result, what was the perception of German as a
language within Europe and the world; how and why has it changed over time,
how has the language changed as a result of migration to other language areas,
how has the perception of specific dialects (or the dialects themselves)
changed over time, what are some synchronic changes induced by different
factors V such as the current influence of English on German
-       what are pragmatic changes in contemporary German, how is Swiss German or
Austrian German developing differently, has the reputation of Swiss German or
Austrian German changed, which social or political factors or events are
currently influencing the development or change of German or its reputation
(in light of current transatlantic tension, for instance), what influence have
other factors (such as the fall of the Berlin Wall) had on the use of the
language
-       what are some changes in the way the language is studied over time, what are
some currently developing theories in linguistics or applied linguistics to
the study of German, what are current trends in translation theory as it
pertains particularly to the translation from and to German, K

      in the area of literature or film studies:
-       which historic (political or social) changes have made a lasting impression
on the literary or cinematic life of an era V e.g. the end of the GDR, a
particular war or series of wars, migration, etc., how have these events
either positively or negatively influenced the work of a particular
author/filmmaker or how are they reflected within a particular work/film or
series of works/films, how have the authors/filmmakers in turn influenced
their times, what has been the reception of a particular German/Austrian/Swiss
author and how has it changed over time (GDR vs. post-GDR, pre-WWII vs.
post-WWII, pre-emigration vs. post-emigration,K) both within Germany as well
as in a larger context, how do German-speaking authors or filmmakers depict
the changing relations to other German-speaking nations, how do depictions of
Germany differ from those of Austria or Switzerland, what are observable
trends in literary theory and how are they tied in with the times,K

      in the area of history and social or political sciences:
-       how have particular historic events influenced German/Austrian/Swiss society
over time, what are current influences on German society and what are its
possibly emerging trends, how has the enlargement of the EU influenced German
political or social policies, how have transatlantic relations shaped and
influenced German politics or German society, how has the role of Germany
within Europe as well as within the world changed over time (or its relation
to a particular country), what are observable current trends and where might
they lead Germany and the Germans, K


The keynote address will be delivered by Wolfgang Brenner, Berlin.

Presentations will be about 20 minutes in length, in German or in English. The
proceedings are also going to be published in our first annual online journal:
