Creating Temporal Space: Time and Place in Middle High German Literature
The concepts of time and space have recently become major sites of investigation for medieval scholarship. From cartographic approaches discussing how medieval mapmakers conceived of their world, to new cultural histories describing communal experiences and individual perceptions of medieval urban and religious spaces as they undergo territorial and seasonal change, it is clear that the Middle Ages provide fertile ground for the investigation of locative and temporal space. Scholarship on the interconnection of these two concepts within Middle High German literature is still in its infancy, however, and it is precisely this connection between time and space in Middle High German narratives that this panel seeks to investigate. In a society struggling to create a national identity in the face of the extremely malleable political borders of the German lands throughout the medieval and early modern period, it is unsurprising that their literature is saturated with representations of spaces and places that affirm and renegotiate the perception and expression of temporal and spatial realities. This panel seeks to address the paucity of scholarship and uncover instances of the interdependence of these concepts in literary representation and to establish a rationale for their existence in a wide range of genres including medieval song, courtly epic, didactic literature, and religious narrative.
We invite submissions from all scholars who work on the German lands and their neighbors, including those who are interested in spaces and places as sites of national, religious, and individual identity (gender, ethnicity, class, community/personhood), as well as to those whose focus is on the development of a cultural consciousness of temporal space in the Middle Ages as a whole.
Topics might include but are not limited to: narrative time, time travel, travel to distant lands, human life span, seasonal change, measuring time, liturgical calendar, Tagelied, childhood, adolesence, old age, subjective experience of place and time.
