The MLA Forum LLC on German Literature to 1700 invites submissions for two panels at the 2017 MLA in Philadelphia (5-8 January). Papers should treat any aspect of German literature and culture before 1700 and we hope to balance panels with a range from the medieval through early modern periods.  The topics are:

1.  “The Origin of Trauerspiel? Reading Benjamin / Reading with Benjamin”

CFP: “The Origin of Trauerspiel? Reading Benjamin / Reading with Benjamin”: Papers on any aspect of Benjamin’s Trauerspiel book. Sources, readings, themes, impact on the discipline of pre- and early modern German and other literatures, on critical theory and aesthetics, on political thought. 150-word abstract, 150-word CV, and a statement whether you need to project visuals or sound to Anna Grotans by 12 March, 2016.

2.     “Pre- and Early Modern Ecologies”

CFP: "Pre- and Early Modern Ecologies": Papers on configurations of humans, animals, things in pre-modern European literature and thought. Focus of the papers should not lie on human agency, but on images and constructions of the ways that human and non-human actors interact. 150-word abstract, 150-word CV, and a statement whether you need to project visuals or sound to Anna Grotans by 12 March, 2016.
