Das Tier im Mittelpunkt: Modernist Animals in Literature and the Arts

40th Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
Feb. 26-March 1, 2009
Hyatt Regency — Boston, Massachusetts

What role does literature have to play in the emerging field of animal
studies, and how can that discourse be fruitfully applied to the
literary and cultural products of the modernist period in the
German-speaking world? In a discourse perhaps dominated by questions
of ethics and animal rights, what are the benefits and hurdles to
re-examining the representation of animals in literature and the arts?
Of all the literary animals in this period, the ones inhabiting
Kafka's writings have perhaps undergone the closest critical scrutiny,
but animals abound in the writings of a large number of authors of the
same period, including most obviously Robert Musil and Rainer Maria
Rilke. Are animals particularly prevalent in this period compared to
others that precede or follow it? If so, how? Is there a peculiarly
'modernist' way of looking at animals, and how useful are such period
descriptors in this context? What influence, if any, did such things
as the industrial revolution, urbanisation, the theory of evolution,
and the rise of psychoanalysis, as well as the establishment of zoos
and the increase in pet-ownership have on the engagement with and
treatment of animals in literature and the arts? Is there a
discernible shift in the representation of animals in this period, and
if so, how does it reflect changing attitudes towards animals in
society and the natural sciences? Finally, how does the treatment of
animals in the German-speaking world of this period compare to and/or
differ from that of other linguistic or cultural spheres?

Please send 250-500 word abstracts to Kári Driscoll
<[log in to unmask]>, for papers dealing with any aspect of animals
or human-animal relations in literature and the arts of this period.
Although primarily focused on the German linguistic and cultural
sphere, inter-disciplinary and comparative approaches are welcome and
encouraged.


Deadline:  September 15, 2008

Please include with your abstract:

Name and Affiliation
Email address
Postal address
Telephone number
A/V requirements (if any; $10 handling fee)
