CFP - "The RAF in Literature and Autobiography"
MLA 2007 - Dec. 27-30 - Chicago, Illinois
Renewed attention has been given to the Red Army Faction and its
representations in literature, art and film in recent years. This
year marks the 40th anniversary of the student demonstrations of the
Shah of Iran's visit to Germany on June 2, 1967 during which student
demonstrator Benno Ohnesorg was shot by police, and it marks the 30th
anniversary of the "Deutscher Herbst" in 1977. This panel seeks to
address how representations of the RAF in novels and
self-representation of the group in autobiographies inform our
understanding of it.
Abstracts (1-2 pp., 250-500 words), which address the RAF in
literature or autobiography are welcome.
Deadline: March 29, 2007
