>"Georg Forster in Mainz.  Literary Output and Communication Networks Before
>and During the Revolution."
>
>During his years in Mainz (1788 to March 1793), Georg Forster's literary
>output was prolific, the "Ansichten vom Niederrhein" being the best-known of
>his works.  Others have been somewhat neglected, such as his "Erinnerungen",
>published in 1790, his essays and his scientific writings, many of which
>remained unpublished during his lifetime.  His literary production also
>included countless reviews and his famous "Übersetzungsfabrik", both of
>which deserve to be analysed in greater detail.
>
>Throughout their time in Mainz, Georg and Therese Forster were at the heart
>of an intellectual network which not only included their circle of closer
>friends and colleagues, but also attracted many well-known thinkers from
>Germany and Europe who came to Mainz in order to exchange views with the
>Forsters.  It was a centre of communication avant la lettre, and our
>knowledge of its inner workings is still quite limited.
>
>Little attention is often paid to the fact that Georg Forster was the
>librarian of the Mainz university library.  Thus he held a crucial position
>with regard to the production and purchasing of books.  Almost nothing is
>known of this part of his work.  When the revolution began, Forster became
>even more active in the provision and distribution of information by
>publishing his own newspaper.  This is another area which deserves greater
>attention and scrutiny.
>
>The Georg Forster Colloquium 2006 will endeavour to develop fresh
>perspectives on this network of media and communication in which Forster
>occupied such a central position.  The structures in which information and
>knowledge were acquired, the changing political circumstances and the role
>of Georg Forster during the Mainz years should provide the framework for new
>research and insights, building on the successful 2005 colloquium on "Georg
>Forster and the Intellectual Networks of His Time".
>
>Potential contributors are welcome to discuss ideas for a presentation or
>other work with Professor Dippel.  Papers presented at the colloquium will
>be published in the yearly Georg Forster Studien series by Kassel University
>Press.

>"Georg Forster in Mainz: Literarische Produktion und Medienzentrum vor und
>während der Revolution"
>
>Von 1788 bis März 1793 entfaltete Forster eine ungeheure literarische
>Produktivität in Mainz, von der die Ansichten vom Niederrhein lediglich das
>bekannteste Werk darstellen. Andere sind dagegen oft im Schatten geblieben,
>darunter seine Erinnerungen aus dem Jahr 1790, Essays, seine zu Forsters
>Zeit unveröffentlicht gebliebenen naturwissenschaftlichen Schriften und
>Versuche. Zu dieser Produktion gehören aber ebenso zahllose nie systematisch
>untersuchte Rezensionen sowie seine bekannte "Übersetzungsfabrik", die
>ebenfalls längst nicht hinreichend durchleuchtet worden ist. Die Forsters in
>Mainz waren ein intellektuelles Zentrum, zu dem nicht nur weitere Personen
>des Umkreises gehörten, sondern das auch bewusst von vielen, mitunter kaum
>weniger illustren Zeitgenossen aus Deutschland und Europa angesteuert wurde,
>um sich mit Forster auszutauschen: ein Kommunikationszentrum avant la
>lettre, von denen wir immer noch viel zu wenig wissen, wie sie wirklich
>funktioniert haben.
>
>Neben alledem wird nur zu leicht vergessen, dass Forster Bibliothekar war
>und sich um die Universitätsbibliothek zu kümmern hatte, er also in einem
>Zentrum von Buchdistribution und -beschaffung stand, worüber unsere Kenntnis
>gering bis gleich null ist. Mit der Ankunft der Revolution ist Forster aktiv
>in der Beschaffung und Verbreitung politischer Nachrichten durch eine eigene
>Zeitung beteiligt. Auch dieser Bereich ist bislang viel zu wenig
>ausgeleuchtet. Wie funktioniert dieses ganze Medienzentrum, in dem Forster
>so eine zentrale Rolle spielte? Genug Fragen nach den Strukturen von
>Wissenserwerb und -vermittlung unter sich wandelnden politischen Bedingungen
>und der Rolle Forsters in ihnen und eine direkte Anknüpfung und Fortführung
>des erfolgreichen Kolloquiums von 2005 über Georg Forster in den
>intellektuellen Netzwerken seiner Zeit.
>
>Informationen zum Kolloquium finden Sie unter
>http://www.georg-forster-gesellschaft.de/.
>
>Wir freuen uns über Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmer am Kolloquium sowie über
>Themenvorschläge für Vorträge.  Die Beiträge zu den Forster-Kolloquien
>werden regelmäßig im Folgejahr in den Georg-Forster-Studien veröffentlicht.
