The panel proposes to examine Marginalia in Goethe and, more broadly, eighteenth-century German texts, culture, and lives. “Marginalia” are understood literally (i.e., notes, comments, pictures, and decorative elements in the margins of books) as well as more figuratively. While the panel seeks to emphasize the former, we also will consider papers that draw attention to forgotten, lost, or otherwise marginalized texts; papers illuminating how a marginal detail alters a domineering story; papers that reflect on how scholarly developments (e.g., interdisciplinarity, transnational collaboration and approaches, technology/digital humanities) enable the focus on marginalia.
