Call for Papers
 
Proposed panel for the German Studies Association Conference in St. 
Paul, MN, October 2-5, 2008
 
Narratology and German Studies
 
Despite the resurgence in the international popularity of narrative 
theory in literary studies as a whole, narratological approaches are not 
often utilized by the field of German Studies, especially as it is 
practiced in the United States. This panel will explore the potentially 
productive uses of narrative theory for German Studies, looking 
particular at the ways in which contemporary narratological practice 
(which combines a traditional structuralist vocabulary with innovative 
approaches from postructuralist theory, semiotics, cognitive theory, 
discourse analysis, media studies, and visual studies) can bring new 
perspectives to issues particular to the concerns of scholars in German 
Studies.  
 
Please send a *query with a presentation topic by Feb. 5* and a *full 
abstract of 150-200 words by Feb. 12* to Erin McGlothlin 
([log in to unmask]).  Diverse and interdisciplinary approaches welcome.
