Kleist's Artistic Legacy-01/25-GSA  10/2-5/2008

for a session to be held at the annual  conference of the
German Studies Association, St. Paul, MN, 2 October - 5  October, 2008

Heinrich von Kleist 1777-2008, The Artistic  Legacy

At GSA 2007 two panels focused on Kleist reception in political  movements 
and in recent German prose works. In 2008, the discussion will be  expanded to 
include all non-scholarly adaptations of and responses to Kleist and  his works.

What is the artistic, political, and legal legacy of Kleist,  his works and 
his life, 230 years after his birth and three years before the  200th 
anniversary of his death? Which artists, political movements, and other  non-academic 
interests have adapted or alluded to Kleist's works or Kleist  himself, modeled 
works after those of Kleist, disembarked from Kleistian tropes,  figures, 
politics, philosophy, metaphysics, aesthetics, stylistic or authorial  gestures 
in literature, film, essay-writing, political discourse, or other  media?
