    Literature, Law and Psychoanalysis, 1890-1950
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    The twentieth-century was a period of worldwide literary experiment, of scientific developments and of worldwide conflict. These changes demanded a rethinking not merely of psychological subjectivity, but also of what it meant to be subject to the law and to punishment. This two-day conference aims to explore relationships between literature, law and psychoanalysis during the period 1890-1950, allowing productive mixing of canonical and popular literature and also encouraging interdisciplinary...

    Psychology and the Text (GSA 2019 Panel)
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    This panel addresses new approaches to German studies that utilize contemporary theories of psychology and cognitive theory. The growth and influence of cognitive theories in literature studies is a reflection of the significant contributions that our colleagues in other fields have made towards our understanding of the human mind. Yet whereas cognitive models have expanded our comprehension of a reader’s interaction with the text, there have been fewer applications of psychology to the texts...

    Fixation: Freud’s Queer Counter-Concept
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    The talk will examine how ‘fixation’ is associated with some of the most inventive and enigmatic moments in Freud’s accounts of the body, sexuality, and time. In one of Freud’s earliest clinical publications from the late 1880s, the term ‘fixation’ marks the moment where psychoanalysis veers off from psychiatry. Confronted with the paradoxical phenomenon of a woman whose speech is subjected to the mysterious force of what he calls ‘counter-will’, Freud begins to lay down the basic building...

    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Der Gegenstand des DFG Graduiertenkollegs 1767 Faktuales und fiktionales Erzählen ist einerseits faktuales Erzählen und ande­rerseits Erzählen, das zwischen Fiktionalität und Faktualität changiert. Damit hebt sich das Thema des Kollegs von der Masse narratologischer und auch philologischer Forschung ab, die primär fiktionale Texte, also Romane, Dramen und Versnarrative behandelt. Das GRK behandelt das Zusammenspiel von Faktualität und Fiktionalität in einer großen Spannbreite von...

    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Im 1972 erschienen Anti-Ödipus denken Gilles Deleuze und Félix Guattari Begehren als nomadisch mäandernde, transformative Kraft. Dieses Manifest der ›Philosophie des Begehrens‹ inspiriert Guy Hocqenghem, Vordenker der Queer Theory, der diese Idee aufgreift und das nomadische Verlangen in glamourösem, kriminellen Milieus beschreibt, die sich bürgerlichen Lebensläufen verwehren. Dieser queertheoretische Strang des Anti-Sozialen wird wiederum von Leo Bersani, Lee Edelman und Teresa de Lauretis...

    Lecture: Dr. Freud meets Dr. Schnitzler: A Case Study of the Ambivalent Intersections between Psychoanalysis and Literature
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Arthur Schnitzler (1862–1931) was a central figure of Viennese modernism, living and working in the Habsburg metropolis at the same time as Sigmund Freud (1856–1939). The talk will introduce the productive, but also extremely ambivalent intellectual and personal relationship between Freud and this literary writer. In a famous letter to Schnitzler, Freud admitted to the so-called ‘doppelganger anxiety’ he felt towards the other man. And indeed, Freud’s texts contain several references to...

    Le paradigme royal. Der König als Fiktionsauslöser (Sammelband)
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Das Bild des Königs definierte sich im Laufe der Zeit - an der Kreuzung verschiedener kultureller, wissenschaftlicher, rechtlicher und metaphysischer Richtungen - als der Ausgangspunkt eines komplexen Imaginären. Ausgehend von der Ebene, die die Entfaltung des königlichen Imaginären bestimmt, kann der König in dreifacher Hinsicht als Fiktionsauslöser erklärt werden: 1. Aus der Hinsicht der Beziehung zum politischen Körper (im politischen, philosophischen Diskurs): Seit der...

    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Ziel des Projektes ist eine umfassende Erforschung von literarischen Texten, die den Versuch unternehmen, Eigenzeitlichkeit als "Kardinalsymptom" psychischer Krankheiten zu denken. Eigenzeitlichkeit ist dabei so zu verstehen, dass von den Zeitgenossen sowohl eine Differenz gegenüber einer objektiven, äußerlichen, quantitativen Zeit o. ä. als auch gegenüber dem inneren, qualitativen Erleben einer nicht psychisch erkrankten Umwelt behauptet wird. Das Projekt ist literaturwissenschaftlich angelegt...

    Literature, Psychoanalysis and the Death Penalty, 1900-1950
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    The key aim of this project is to examine how the cultural and ethical power of literature offered early twentieth-century readers opportunities for thinking through capital punishment in the UK, Ireland and the US in the period between 1900 and 1950. Further, during this period both literature and conceptions of justice were profoundly influenced by the developing science of psychoanalysis. In a 1926 article 'Über die Todesstrafe' Thomas Mann used Freud's 'Totem and Taboo' in support of his...
