BeschreibungCall for Papers – Identity and Memory Construction in Urban Spaces – GSA
September 22-25, Louisville, KY

Panel organizers:
Dr. Kurt Fendt, Principal Research Associate – Comparative Media Studies (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
Emily E. Jones, Ph.D. Candidate (Harvard University)

Papers sought for a panel examining processes of urban memory and identity construction in the German context. To what degree are memories impacted by the urban spaces surrounding their formation? How does the identity of a neighborhood develop over time? What is the effect of borders (between city and country, between neighborhoods, between countries) on identity and memory? How do perceived borders impact a neighborhood’s identity? How do historical narratives express themselves in urban spaces? How can urban planning enable or hamper processes of identity formation? What is the effect of a city or neighborhood’s history on changing populations and vice versa? What is the role of media (old and new) in these processes?

Possible topics may include, but are not limited to:

• Space/place theories
• Urban planning
• Literature and film of the Großstadt
• Documenting urban memories and identities
• Urbanization around the Industrial Revolution
• Post-Berlin Wall renovation and/or gentrification
• Memory/memorialization/commemoration
• Heimat

Our panel will ideally address many of these questions in the context of German culture – submissions from all periods of German literature, film, art, and cultural studies are welcome.

Please submit abstracts (250-300 words) by February 13 to:, Jones, Emily E.
