    Contending with the Nach-/Vorlass (GSA 2019 Panel)
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Following the death knell of theory at the beginning of the 20 st century, there has been a renewed scholarly preoccupation with the literary archive and the Nachlass . In some cases, the resurrection of the author has brought with it a return to older philological methods, anchoring interpretations of texts in the lived experiences and private reflections of the individual writer manifested in the journals, notebooks, blogs and other (peri)texts that form a literary legacy. In yet other...

    Form. Perspektiven einer literaturwissenschaftlichen Theorie
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Eine Leitdifferenz innerhalb der Ästhetik ist die von Oberfläche und Tiefe, was sich auch in eine Gegenüberstellung von ‚Form’ und ‚Gehalt’ übersetzen läßt. Mit ihr einher geht gewöhnlich eine Wertung bzw. Zuordnung der jeweiligen Artefakte zur Sphäre entweder der freien oder der angewandten Kunst. Der Graben, der Kunst und Kunsthandwerk trennt, ist eine der Konsequenzen der Geschichte der Ästhetik in Deutschland, die mit Goethe und Hegel auf Fragen des Gehalts festgelegt wurde – auf Kosten...

    Visibility of the Invisible: The Idea, Theory, and Ontology of Trace (NeMLA 2020)
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    This panel invites proposals to examine the notion, theory, idea, and ontology of the trace and the ways in which it can be deployed in literature, image studies, art, film, and other media and disciplines. From its rudimentary manifestations as smoke and fire and footprint, to theological significations of the image of Jesus on the Shroud of Turin, the trace, as a visible marker of an absent presence, generates a compelling milieu to meditate on the proliferation of meaning in text and...

    Ausgezeichnet! Zur Geschichte, Theorie und Praxis von Literaturpreisen
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Literaturpreise sind ein Instrument der Valorisierung und Evaluierung von Literatur, sie erstreben die Konsekration von AutorInnen und Werken, haben Einfluß auf die Dynamik des literarischen Feldes und bieten LeserInnen Orientierungshilfen.

Die Ringvorlesung gibt in ihrem ersten Teil einen Überblick über die...

    Autofiction - Theory, Practices, Cultures - A Comparative Perspective
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Keynotes: Max Saunders (King’s College London), Martina Wagner-Egelhaaf (University of Münster) Description: There is no critical consensus regarding the term autofiction. Some see it as describing any novel with autobiographical elements, others apply more restrictive definitions. This conference seeks to bring together different theoretical approaches to autofiction, to explore the validity of the concept and to think about how different definitions and traditions...

    The Material Turn in Comparative Literature: The Old and the New, A Conversation (ACLA 2020)
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Recent times have seen a proliferation of ontoepistemologies centered on the more-than-human. From object oriented-ontology, speculative realism, ecocriticism, animal studies, or plant studies to new materialisms (to name just a few approaches), we are witnessing a surge in rethinking the community or intra-action of the human and the nonhuman in planetary or cosmic life. Though these new strands of thought are no doubt brought on at least in part by concerns over anthropogenic climate change...

    Style: Beyond Form (ACLA 2020)
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    The past decade has seen an outpouring of work on form. Relatively little, by comparison, has foregrounded style. What is the relation between form and style? How does style get us leverage on political and social questions that form does not—and vice versa—and why? Which social contradictions animate style, or is it more a matter of psychic ambivalence? As D. A. Miller has argued, style may aim to get us close, but not too close, to hegemonic social and sexual orders that exclude us. Or...

    Reading in Theory (ACLA 2020)
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Despite the proliferation of critical engagements with theories of reading by scholars of literary studies, it seems fair to say that relatively little has changed since Paul de Man claimed, “the resistance to theory is in fact a resistance to reading, a resistance that is perhaps at its most effective, in contemporary studies, in the methodologies that call themselves theories of reading but nevertheless avoid the function they claim as their object” ( The Resistance to Theory 15). This...

    Literary Characters. Where to? (ACLA 2020)
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Since the early 2000s, there has been a new character turn within literary theory and comparative literary studies: from Woloch’s The One vs. The Many (2003), Fowler’s Literary Character (2003), and Palmer’s Fictional Minds (2004), up to the more recent Taha’s Heroizability (2014), Fictional Characters (2016, ed. by Hagberg), and Figlerowicz’s Flat Protagonists (2017), scholars from different disciplines and fields tried to propose a new reading of literary characters...

    Comparative Returns (ACLA 2020)
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    What does it mean to return – to someone, to a place, to an earlier critical moment? One thinks of Heraclitus’ canard that one cannot step into the same river twice; that, in other words, to return to something as it precisely was is impossible. But surely something like the opposite is also true, namely that returning very often seems to involve a return to and of the same. This, at least, holds true in certain literary and artistic portrayals of return, where a protagonist returns to gain...

    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    The Center for Comparative Literature and Society was founded in 1998, taking stock of the diminished role of area studies programs after the Fall of the Berlin Wall. It was time to notice that the area studies programs had interdisciplinarity built into them and generally practiced intensive language study. On the other hand, a humanities-based, generally Eurocentric comparative literature was offering theories of interpretation that would enhance the area studies approach. The goal was to open...
