ADALBERT STIFTER AT 200: AN INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM
Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, 21 - 22 October 2005
Adalbert Stifter has long been considered one of
the giants of nineteenth-century German
literature, albeit a problematic one. His work
is a stylistic provocation, a challenge to the
reader, an attempt to establish order as both an
aesthetic and a moral category. Buried under
layers and layers of words, though, runs a
subtext that unsettles and destabilizes.
This symposium will be held to celebrate the
Austrian writer's bicentennial and is designed to
be inclusive of all levels of academia and of all
scholarly or creative approaches to Stifter's
work. We invite submissions from graduate
students, junior and senior faculty as well as
creative artists to speak on Stifter's work,
legacy, and relevance for us today.
Colleagues and Stifter aficionados are invited to
join us in October 2005. Proposals should be
submitted as soon as possible, but no later than
April 30, 2005.
Please email your Abstracts (not to exceed 400
words) to Ute Maschke ([log in to unmask]) and to
Samuel Frederick ([log in to unmask]).
