Protest! Reaction and Reform, Tradition and Modernity in German Culture and Society 1871-1918

This interdisciplinary conference will explore the various discourses of protest, reform and experimentation conducted in the socio-political field. It will also ask how these discourses are taken up and transformed by art and culture. Further objectives are to investigate the literary and artistic strategies employed to engage with socio-political concerns, to examine the relationship between factual and fictional discourses, and to determine the impact made by artistic production on the socio-political debates of the time.

Abstracts of 250-300 words should be sent to both Godela Weiss-Sussex<mailto:[log in to unmask]> and Charlotte Woodford<mailto:[log in to unmask]> by 10 January 2012.
