CFP: GERMAN STUDIES (11/1/2010, Kentucky Foreign Language Conference, April 14-16, 2011)

The German Studies Division of the Department of Modern and Classical Languages, Literatures and Cultures at the University of Kentucky invites your submissions.

64th Kentucky Foreign Language Conference
April 14-16, 2011

Please submit your abstracts electronically via the KFLC’s central abstract submission site at:
http://www.kflcabstracts.uky.edu/

Deadline for submission of abstracts: November 1, 2010

Special Topic Panels:

Zum 200. Todesjahr Heinrich von Kleists (Joseph O’Neil)

“Die abgestorbene Eiche steht im Sturm / Doch die gesunde stürzt er schmetternd nieder / Weil er in ihre Krone greifen kann.”
(Penthesilea, l. 3041-43)

In 2011, the bicentennial of Kleist’s suicide, this series of panels is open to any Kleistian theme but especially to issues of real and figurative death and survival in identity or in difference. The following are only suggestions for individual or panel proposals; contributors should by no means feel limited to these.

-- Kleist’s corpus/Kleist’s corpse: Materiality, embodiment, and the forensic text in and on Kleist
-- Historical transformation: Ends, beginnings, change and continuity in Kleist’s work
-- The ends of biography and history: Writing Kleist’s life and times and reading them in his work
-- Non-identical and post-human survival: “Becoming animal” or becoming other as survival strategies
-- “Spirit is a bone”: Materiality and history around 1800 in Kleist and his contemporaries
-- Kleist as partisan: the Befreiungskriege and the survival of Prussia
-- Can sovereignty survive? Political thought and rhetoric in Kleist
-- Distinguishing Kleist—from Goethe, the Romantics, himself…
-- Kleist’s afterlives: Reception, critique, theory

Proposals for panels as well as for individual papers on any aspect of Kleist are welcome. Please direct all proposals and inquiries to Joseph O’Neil.

Transnational Writing in German (Theodore Fiedler)

This panel explores the literary work of contemporary nonnative speakers of German writing in German. Submissions dealing with the general phenomenon of migrant literature in the German-speaking countries as well as the work of individual authors are welcome. Please direct all proposals and inquiries to Theodore Fiedler.

Writing Fear (Heide Crawford)

How do authors and poets “write fear”? What strategies and narrative techniques do they use to convey a sense of fear and dread on the written page? In this special session we will examine how German authors and poets have brought fear to the reader in the works they have written. Paper proposals of 1-2 pages that address this theme of writing fear in any literary genre or period in German literary history are welcome. Please direct all proposals and inquiries to Heide Crawford.

Language Pedagogy – Reading Literary Texts with Beginners (Brenna Byrd)

This panel seeks papers demonstrating innovative strategies for the integration of authentic German literary texts into first year German language courses. Recent scholarship has stressed the importance of introducing literature at an earlier stage to prepare students for the sophisticated literary and cultural competence required in higher-level courses. Yet literary texts and cultural lessons in beginning language courses are often brought in as an afterthought, if at all, due to the difficulty of discussing such topics in the target language. Presentations on the use of texts that easily mesh with the standard topics covered in the first year of German are especially welcome. Please direct all proposals and inquiries to Brenna Byrd.

Regular Panels:

- Graduate Student Panel: Joseph O’Neil ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>) and Brenna Byrd ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>)
- 18th Century: Michael Jones ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>) and Joseph O’Neil ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>)

- 20th Century to 1945: Hillary Hope Herzog ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>)
