TitelRema(r)king German Literature: Revision, Revaluation and the Editorial Process
BeschreibungSecond International Graduate Student Conference
Hosted by the Department of CENES
University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada
September 16-17, 2011

To take the editorial process as an object of study, John Bryant asserts in his
book The Fluid Text: a Theory of Revision and Editing for Book and Screen, is
to reject the popular assumption "that the job of textual scholarship ... is to
sift through corruption and otherness and establish an authoritative or
definitive text for common use." He holds that in the illumination and
investigation of editorial changes, "we find more than just the accidents of
textual transmission; we begin to envision a fuller phenomenon, tied to
historical moments but always changing and always manifesting one set of
interests or another" (2002, 2). The literary edition is a fascinating site of
negotiation between the interests (and perceived interests) of reader, editor,
and author. These categories of reader, editor and author can further coexist
in various combinations within one individual as in the case, for example, of
self-censorship. We are seeking presentations that approach textual changes
as evidence of these negotiations in order to gain insight into the editorial
process and the cultural moments underlying them in German-language

We invite proposals on the topic of Rema(r)king German Literature: Revision,
Revaluation and the Editorial Process. Areas of interest include, but are not
limited to:

The Role of the Editor in the Editorial Process

- electronic editions
- revising the bibliographic code
- the editor's preface
- history of the editor
- editions in translation
- orthographic modernization

The Role of the Author in the Editorial Process

- author as editor
- self-censorship and self-editing
- autobiography
- awareness of editorial process
- the author and the co-created literary text

Editing Texts not Composed for Publication

- posthumous editions
- editing diaries
- editing personal correspondence
- ethics of editing

The Editorial Process and Canon Building

- kinds of editions
- selection of texts and the economics of culture
- critical reception of editions
- editing and the material history of the book
- minority authors and the editorial process
- editing and the category of "literary"
- the "definitive" edition
