Goethe and His Collaborators: Literary, Philosophical and Political  
Reflections on

Collaboration and Collectivity in the Eighteenth Century

Panel Sponsored by the Goethe Society of North America

German Studies Association to be held in Pittsburgh, PA

September 28 – Octonber 1, 2006

This panel will seek to explore the various notions of  
“collaboration” in the work of Goethe and his contemporaries as both  
an idea of collective creativity as well as political and national  
infidelity. In what ways was collaboration a key site of debate  
during the numerous political and aesthetic upheavals of the long  
eighteenth century?  How does attention to the idea of collaboration  
challenge accepted scholarly narratives of eighteenth-century  
authorship, property and nationality? Papers are sought that identify  
both the various acts of collaboration (whether political or  
literary) among Goethe and his circle as well as their reflections on  
the nexus of collectivity, infidelity and creativity.
