    Biofiction as World Literature (15.04.2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Biofiction (literature that takes a real biography as its point of departure) is powered by what Colm Tóibín has recently called “the anchored imagination”, which grants the fictional narrative a certain ambiguous (almost duplicitous) credibility. As such, biofictions are already situated on the borderline between real and possible worlds. Paradoxically, they often incarnate the real and the possible simultaneously. But what do they then mean as world-making vehicles, in the sense of mediating...

    Writing a Cosmos: European Literature and Popular Astronomy, 1890-1950
    Beitrag von: Christoph Richter-Rodiek

    The symposium Writing a Cosmos: European Literature and Popular Astronomy (February 6, KU Leuven) investigates the relationship between literature and astronomy during the modernist period (1890-1950) in Europe, addressing the vast literary response to astronomical developments with the rise of the ‘new astronomy’. It gauges the role literature played in mediating astronomical knowledge and exploring new ways of imagining the cosmos. The symposium aims to map fiction that incorporates...

    Detecting Transcultural Identity in European Popular Crime Narratives
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    This project examines examples of crime fiction to learn how mobility strategies such as co-production, serialization, translation, adaptation, distribution, and more, have influenced the transnational dissemination of European popular culture. It also investigates how the treatment of specific ‘mobile signifiers’—including representations of gender, ethnic and class identities—affect the ability of European narratives to migrate outside their place of origin, and be appropriated elsewhere in...

    The Irish Short Story and The Bell Magazine (1940-1954)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    The project seeks to investigate the publication and mediation of the Irish short story in the influential Irish literary periodical The Bell between 1940 and 1954 so as to assess The Bel l ’s seminal role in the formation of a canon and a normative meta-narrative about the short story in Ireland. Through a detailed study of both the actual stories and the views on the short story in The Bell within the larger literary, cultural and ideological framework of this periodical, the...

    The Poetics of Precarity
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    The financial and economic collapse in 2007/2008 has increased the interest for the literary reflection on economic crises and their social consequences. This project takes this contemporary sensibility and the ways in which it is reflected in contemporary political theory as a vantage point to look back at the German social novels written in the last decades of the 19 th century. By focusing on the literary representation of the worker in his/her living and working conditions, this project...

    The Construction of Countries
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    The Construction of Countries: the Phototextual "Portraits de pays" Series (1950-1980) studies photographically illustrated books by (canonised) authors that are devoted to the depiction of countries and cities. The focus of the project lies on the 8 most important "collections" or series of such books published between 1950 and 1980 in the French-speaking world: “Escales du monde” (Les documents d’art), “Albums des guides bleus” (Hachette), “Que j’aime” (Sun), “Petite planète” (Le Seuil), "Le...

    Lines of Heredity: Eugenics and Gender in European Literature, 1880-1935
    Beitrag von: Fatima Borrmann

    May 18-19, 2020 MDRN First keynote speaker: Prof. Angelique Richardson (University of Exeter). Second keynote speaker to be announced later. During the late 19th and early 20th century evolutionary theory and new insights in heredity were becoming increasingly influential in social debates. Theories of Darwin, Spencer, Lamarck and Mendel were used to address anxieties about degeneration across Europe. Eugenicists sought to improve both the individual and the nation...

    Avant-Garde Egypt
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Avant-Garde Egypt is a subproject in the research programme Literary Knowledge (1890-1950): Modernisms and the Sciences in Europe . The project investigates literary interactions between the European historical avant-gardes and the contemporaneous popular interest in Egyptology. The last decade of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century saw archaeology emerge as a distinct and methodological science proper as compared to its previous status as the realm of treasure hunting...

    Modern Etruscans
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Modern Etruscans is a subproject in the research programme Literary Knowledge (1890-1950): Modernisms and the Sciences in Europe . The project explores the ways in which an increasingly specialized knowledge of Etruscan culture affected not only Italian but also other Western European literatures in the modernist period. Especially after the political unification of Italy, in 1861, a new interest in Ancient Rome and other local italic cultures spread on the Italian peninsula, leading,...

    Eugenic Women
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Eugenic Women is a subproject in the research programme Literary Knowledge (1890-1950): Modernisms and the Sciences in Europe . The project researches literature by German and British female authors who engaged in the widespread debate on eugenic science during the late 19 th and early 20 th century. Eugenics sought to improve both the individual and the nation by simulating the process of natural selection to ward off the perceived threat of ‘degeneration’. By interfering with...

    Colonised Citizens
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Colonized Citizens is a subproject in the research programme Literary Knowledge (1890-1950): Modernisms and the Sciences in Europe . The project focuses on colonial literature in Belgium and Germany, both ‘late participants’ in the European colonial endeavour. These countries' expansion of national sovereignty to overseas territories was permeated by the many life-management discourses that drew on the insights of genetics and eugenics. It comes as no surprise that these discourses were...

    Popular Astronomy is a subproject of the larger research programme, Literary Knowledge, 1890-1950: Modernisms and the Sciences in Europe , funded by the KU Leuven Research Council. This project aims to arrive at a better understanding of the epistemic function of British and German literature within a European context in the modernist period (1890-1950). More specifically, it seeks to comprehend how writers responded to the new astronomical discoveries and interpretations of the universe,...

    Poetic Cosmos is a subproject in the research programme Literary Knowledge (1890-1950): Modernisms and the Sciences in Europe . This project investigates how cosmological findings shaped the representation of the Universe in literature. The modernist period is considered to be the “golden age of cosmology” (North). Albert Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity or George Lemaître’s theory of the expanding Universe, among others, marked a turning point in the age-old study of the cosmos. New...

    Literary Knowledge (1890-1950): Modernisms and the Sciences in Europe
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Literary Knowledge (1890-1950): Modernisms and the Sciences in Europe studies literature’s epistemic status during the modernist period. It homes in on writing from different registers (highbrow, avant-garde, middlebrow and more popular forms of literature) as well as on writing from various cultures and languages, in order to determine how European literature in the modernist period defined its own epistemic function within a larger economy of knowledge production. The programme focusses...
