This symposium seeks to build on this exciting and extensive archive of scholarship on queer German studies by bringing together researchers at different stages of their academic careers and from different institutions to share their current research. While dedicated to contemporary approaches to queer German studies, the symposium additionally aims to facilitate discussion about the disciplinary history of queer German studies.

CFP: German Graduate Conference “Deviance – Am Rande seiner selbst”

Annual Graduate Conference
Department of Germanic Languages & Literatures

September 28-29, 2019, University of Toronto

“Das Gedicht heute behauptet sich am Rande seiner selbst; es ruft und holt sich, um bestehen zu können, unausgesetzt aus seinem Schon-nicht-mehr in sein Immer-noch zurück. Das Gedicht ist einsam. Es ist einsam und unterwegs. Das Gedicht will zu einem Andern, es braucht dieses Andere, es braucht ein Gegenüber. Es sucht es auf, es spricht sich ihm zu.”
Paul Celan

CfP: "Interface"

Interface Issue 10 - Poetry and Transculturality in Asia and Europe – Philosophical and Psychological aspects

Inter- and transcultural topics are abundant in various literatures (including but not limited to Russian, Chinese, Japanese, English and German), often developing surprisingly similar characteristics even in geographically distant locations, different genres or time periods. One particular factor fostering such developments is the transformation process of a particular literary motive from one culture to another, often by the use of translation. It becomes especially apparent when depicting borderline experience, or in a multilingual context.
