>>Geschichte und Interpretation
>>Susan Sontags Essay »Against Interpretation« 
>>(1964) war nur der Auftakt zu einer
>>ganzen Reihe interpretationskritischer Ansätze, die ab den späten 60er Jahren
>>auf beiden Seiten des Atlantiks kontrovers diskutiert wurden. Auch wenn all
>>diesen Ansätzen eine starke Skepsis gegenüber »traditionelleren« Formen der
>>Interpretation (etwa Hermeneutik, New Criticism) gemeinsam ist, unterscheiden
>>sie sich doch maßgeblich - dies gerade auch in 
>>ihrem Umgang mit dem Verhältnis
>>von Interpretation bzw. Textanalyse und Geschichtlichkeit.
>>
>>Während Susan Sontags Interpretationskritik 
>>sich nicht gegen Interpretation per
>>se richtet, sondern die Gültigkeit von 
>>Interpretation für ihre eigene Gegenwart
>>in Frage stellt, lehnt die Dekonstruktion bzw. 
>>der Dekonstruktionismus bestimmte
>>Formen von Interpretation aus sprachphilosophischen und erkenntnisskeptischen
>>Einwänden grundlegend ab. Der Dekonstruktion 
>>ist jedoch vorgeworfen worden, mit
>>ihren Mitteln verliere man Geschichtlichkeit 
>>aus dem Blick. Ansätze wie der New
>>Historicism verbinden die Interpretation von 
>>Literatur mit spezifischen Modellen
>>historischer Dynamik, und im Gefolge der 
>>Cultural Studies werden Interpretation
>>und historisches Bewußtsein ethisch rückgebunden. Die von der Empirischen
>>Literaturwissenschaft und der strukturalen Semiotik vertretene
>>Interpretationskritik versucht, Interpretation mit Standards der Analytischen
>>Wissenschaftstheorie kompatibel zu machen.
>>
>>Vierzig Jahre nach »Against Interpretation« und den heftigen
>>Auseinandersetzungen zwischen den Anhängern 
>>unterschiedlicher Positionen scheint
>>ein Pragmatismus eingekehrt zu sein - und derweilen auch eine gewisse
>>»Theoriemüdigkeit«. Diese besteht oft darin, 
>>die theoretischen und methodischen
>>Grundlagen der eigenen Praxis einfach nicht zu 
>>hinterfragen. Wir möchten deshalb
>>einladen, an einer transatlantischen Debatte 
>>teilzunehmen über den Stellenwert
>>von Geschichte für Interpretation und über die Interpretation von Geschichte.
>>Dies verlangt, sich auch mit den Begriffen »Interpretation« und »Geschichte«
>>auseinanderzusetzen. Aus der Vielzahl der möglichen Fragestellungen sollen
>>einige hervorgehoben werden:
>>*	Braucht man »epochenspezifische 
>>Interpretationstechniken«? Kann man »moderne« 
>>und »postmoderne« Texte überhaupt 
>>»interpretieren«? Welche anderen Verfahren 
>>bieten sich an? *	Ist die Theoriedebatte um 
>>Interpretation von Relevanz für die
>>heutige Interpretationspraxis? Inwiefern sind Interpretationstheorien und
>>Interpretationen selbst zeitspezifisch? * 
>>	Wie gehen wir mit der Geschichtlichkeit 
>>der Kategorien »Faktualität« und 
>>»Fiktionalität« um? Kann 
>>literaturwissenschaftliche 
>>Interpretationstheorie die Diskussion um den 
>>Umgang mit historiographischen Darstellungen 
>>bereichern? *	Welche Relevanz hat die 
>>Interpretation eines historischen Textes für 
>>aktuelle (philosophische, politische, ethische 
>>etc.) Fragestellungen?
>>
>>Sehr willkommen sind Beiträge, die in bezug stehen zum eigenen
>>Dissertationsvorhaben. Wir bitten um Abstracts von 300-500 Wörtern; bitte als
>>Attachment (RTF-Format) per E-Mail bis spätestens 15.02.2006 an:

>>Das deutsch-amerikanische Promovenden Forum Germanistik
>>(www.dapf-germanistik.de) hat sich im Juni 2005 als gemeinnütziger, von
>>Doktorandinnen und Doktoranden selbstorganisierter Verein konstituiert.  Ziel
>>des Vereins ist es, den transatlantischen 
>>wissenschaftlichen Austausch zwischen
>>Doktoranden und Doktorandinnen der Germanistik zu befördern.  Die diesjährige
>>Ausschreibung des Forums richtet sich mit 
>>seiner Ausschreibung insbesondere an
>>Promovierende im Bereich der (älteren und neueren) deutschen Literatur, aber
>>auch Promovierende aus den benachbarten 
>>Fachbereichen sind willkommen.  Die 2.
>>Jahrestagung des Deutsch-amerikanischen Promovenden-Forums möchte erneut
>>Fragestellungen aufwerfen, die die Unterschiede und Gemeinsamkeiten zwischen
>>amerikanischer und deutscher Germanistik sichtbar und diskutierbar machen.

>>History and Interpretation
>>Susan Sontag's essay, Against Interpretation 
>>(1964) may be viewed as a prelude
>>to a whole series of approaches in criticizing interpretation, launching
>>controversial discussions on both sides of the Atlantic.  Although these
>>approaches are similar in their scepticism 
>>against 'more traditional' forms of
>>interpretation (such as hermeneutics and New Criticism), they differ
>>significantly-mostly in their treatment of the 
>>proportion of interpretation or
>>the analyses of a text and its historicity. While Sontag's critique of
>>interpretation is not directed against interpretation per se, (instead, it
>>questions the validity of interpretation for her own time), deconstructionist
>>theory, or deconstruction, radically opposes 
>>certain forms of interpretation out
>>of sceptical objections.  Deconstructionist theory has been accused of
>>completely losing sight of historicity through 
>>its methods.  Approaches such as
>>New Historicism combine the interpretation of 
>>literature with specific models of
>>historical vitality.  In the wake of Cultural Studies, interpretation and
>>historical consciousness have been connected 
>>again, this time through an ethical
>>lens.  Critical interpretation stemming from empirical literary studies and
>>structural semiotics attempts to make interpretation compatible with current
>>standards of the analytic philosophy of science.    Forty years after Against
>>Interpretation and the intense debates among 
>>supporters of different positions,
>>theorists appear to have arrived at a form of 
>>pragmatism-and at the same time a
>>certain "theoretical burn-out."  This arises from no longer questioning the
>>theoretical and methodical foundations of one's own practices.
>>In light of these debates, we would like to invite participation in a
>>transatlantic debate about the importance of history for interpretation and
>>about the interpretation of history.  This line of inquiry also begs the
>>distinction between the terms "history" and "interpretation".  From the many
>>possible questions, the following should be emphasized:
>>*   Does one need "epoch-specific techniques of interpretation"? How can one
>>'interpret' 'modern' and 'postmodern' texts at all?  Which other methods are
>>available?
>>*   Is the theoretical debate about interpretation relevant for contemporary
>>practices of interpretation? To what extent are 
>>theories of interpretation and
>>interpretations time-specific?
>>*   How do we address the historicity of the categories "factuality" and
>>"fictionality"? In what ways might theories of interpretation in literature
>>enrich the discussion about the way 
>>historiographic representations are handled?
>>*   What relevance does the interpretation of a 
>>historical text have for current
>>(philosophical, political, ethical, etc.) questions?
>>
>>Presentations focusing on the presenter's dissertation topic are especially
>>welcome.  We are asking for abstracts of 
>>300-500 words:  Please send this as an
>>attachment (RTF-Format) per email by February 15, 2006 to:
>>[log in to unmask]; travel funds are possibly available.

>>The German-American Graduate Student Forum 
>>(www.dapf-germanistik.de) was founded
>>in June, 2005 as a non-profit association organized and constituted by
>>dissertating graduate students.  The goal of the organization is to encourage
>>the transatlantic scholarly exchange between graduate students in German
>>literature.  This year's proposal is geared 
>>primarily toward inviting graduate
>>students in the fields of early and modern German literature, but graduate
>>students from related disciplines are also welcome.  The second annual
>>conference of the German-American Graduate 
>>Student Forum would once more like to
>>raise questions which make the differences and commonalities between American
>>and German studies in German literature visible and discussible.
