BeschreibungEmpire and the German-Speaking World Today

The fourth Colloquium in the Leeds-Swansea Series in Contemporary German Culture will take place in Leeds from 7-9 July 2010 on the theme of Empire.

Invited speakers

Professor Dirk Göttsche (Nottingham)
Professor Michael Hoffmann (Paderborn)
Dr. Alexandra Strohmaier (Graz)

Titles of papers and short abstracts (up to 200 words, in German or English) giving some details of how an aspect of Empire is treated in a contemporary medium or genre, visual, textual or other, to h.c.finch@leeds.ac.uk by 16 March 2010.

While the organisers have an elastic understanding of 'contemporary', some connection with the current (that is twenty-first) century should be made.

Possible topics include but are not limited to:

. Legacies of Colonialism
. The Imperial Idea in Central Europe (Habsburg, Hohenzollern, Ottoman, Romanov)
. Imperial Encounters in contemporary travel writing
. Third Reich Imperialism
. Counterfactual Histories
. Transnationalism and memory in the postcolonial world
. The 'Eastern Turn'

A selection of the papers will be published.
