Call for Papers: German Classicism and Religion

The Goethe Society will sponsor a panel on German Classicism and Religion
at the upcoming GSA conference in Oakland, October 7-10, 2010. 

We are interested in papers on the representation of Christianity, Judaism, 
and Islam in German Classicism. How do authors such as Schiller, Goethe,
Kleist, and Hölderlin conceptualize the divine? How do they represent
religious institutions? Are there instances of blasphemy in these works?
Contributions on women authors who wrote in the context of German
Classicism such as Charlotte von Stein and Caroline von Wolzogen are welcome.

Please email proposals to [log in to unmask] by February 1, 2010.
