CALL FOR PAPERS -- PLEASE CIRCULATE
FROM THE MLA DIVISION FOR GERMAN LITERATURE BEFORE 1700
Papers sought that examine any sensual aspect in relation to medieval and early modern German literature: sight, touch, sound, smell, or taste. Topics might include the representation and symbolic deployment of material objects either sacred or profane, the structuring and interpretation of space (architecture) and landscape, the role of music or song in a particular text, the significance of smell and taste in secular and sacred literature. Also of interest would be examinations of texts themselves as material objects (in and outside of manuscripts) how they relate to the material world in which they were produced (for example in a monastery, at court, in the town) or to other material works of art (painting, architecture, sculpture, etc.).
