    Ziel der Tagung war es, umwelthistorische Perspektiven […] mit der ökokritischen Diskussion zu verbinden. Es wurde gefragt, wie der Wandel im menschlichen Verhältnis zur Natur zu unterschiedlichen Zeiten in literarischen Texten verhandelt wird und welche neuen literarischen Ausdrucksformen diese Verhandlungen womöglich provozieren. Komplementär wird gefragt, wie sich literarische und kulturelle Muster auf die Gestaltung der naturalen Umwelt auswirken können. Vor dem Hintergrund der zunehmenden Etablierung des Ecocriticism als relativ jungem theoretischen Zugang zu Literatur einerseits und der Umweltgeschichte als ebenfalls junger Disziplin in der Geschichtswissenschaft andererseits konnte eine Fülle von Themen in Literatur und Geschichte ausgebreitet werden: Ausgehend von einer theoretischen Einführung in den Ecocriticism umspannten die Beiträge zeitlich 2000 Jahre von der römischen Antike über die Hausväterliteratur des 17. und 18. Jahrhunderts und die Literatur des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts bis zur Gegenwart. Räumlich reichten sie von den Weiten des Alls über die alpine Maienwiese bis zur Tiefsee. Sowohl Literatur als auch bildende Kunst und Gartenkunst wurden einbezogen.

  2. Did Philologists write the Iliad? : Friedrich August Wolf's criteria of style and the demonstrative power of citation

    Friedrich August Wolf posits in his "Prolegomena ad Homerum" that, from the time of the first transcription of Homer's epics around 700 BC to the time of the Alexandrian editions, the Iliad and Odyssey underwent repeated revisions by a multitude of poets and critics. According to Wolf, the "unified" works that we know are the products of emendations by Alexandrian critics who attempted to homogenize the style of the epics and to return them to their "original" form. This paper argues that Wolf's narration of the history of these texts relies on and produces aesthetic claims, not historical ones. Wolf determines the dates and origins of passages based on intuitive judgments of style for which he cannot provide linguistic or historical evidence. And his conclusions that the "Iliad" and "Odyssey" were not written by Homer, but rather by a history of emendations and revisions, enthrones his work — the work of philologists — in place of the literary genius Homer. Thus philology becomes for Wolf an aesthetic discipline that produces canonical and beautiful works of literature. This aesthetic task is essential for philology to fulfill its educational and political responsibilities.

    In response to the question "What is the nature of a philological practice that seeks to establish a spatial relationship between text and reader?" this essay compares the philologist Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht's contemporary account of aesthetic experience with the school of Empathy Aesthetics in the late nineteenth century with respect to the manner each emphasizes the spatial qualities of that relationship. Although employing different conceptual repertoires, both assert that the desire of an aesthetic recipient to be in the spatial vicinity of the object and experience the presence of the object with and upon his own body motivates an aesthetic experience, including the work of the philologist. Gumbrecht and the empathy aesthetician Robert Vischer characterize the desire to stand in a spatial relationship to the aesthetic object as the desire to be subsumed thereby, a characterization which entails the negation of the original philological standpoint.

  4. Der literaturgeschulte Blick auf videographierte Interviews mit Überlebenden der Shoah : Literaturwissenschaft an den Grenzen des Faches

    The essay raises the question of what it actually means to work with concepts of intermediality in literary studies. It uses as an example a Ph.D project which compares story-telling in literary texts and videographed testimonies by Shoah survivors. It soon becomes clear that that a strictly "intermedial" approach does not fully serve the purpose. Instead, one should try to maintain a literary studies perspective even on other forms of media. To illustrate this, the essay presents an analysis of videographed testimonies using categories taken from literary narratology. It thereby shows the problems as well as the merits of such an approach, at the limits of the discipline.

    Philology seems to have come to a crossroads. One path leads back to the save haven of established core strengths and competences, the other path promises new perspectives through further expansion into the vastness of cultural studies. If philology is to continue as a discipline relevant to society as a whole, retreat into pure philology — concentrating only on the text itself, adhering to national boundaries — is no viable option. Instead, by opening itself up for the questions and methods of truly interdisciplinary inquiry, philology can emerge in new shape, powerful enough to adequately address issues of interdisciplinary, intercultural and intergenerational importance. This essay will argue for such an extension of philology into cultural studies through an examination of texts, songs and plays written in and about the Terezín ghetto. The songs of Leo Strauß and Manfred Greiffenhagen, the ghetto opera "Der Kaiser von Atlantis" (The Emperor of Atlantis), as well as Roy Kift's play "Camp Comedy" and Frido Mann's parable "Terezín" will exemplify the potential of philology’s conjunction with history, sociology and cultural studies.
