Ist international Anna Amalia & Goethe Symposium
Date: 30-March- to-1-April-2007
Location: Goethe-Institute Weimar, GERMANY

On April 10, 2007 the 200th anniversary of the death of ANNA AMALIA,
DUCHESS OF SAXONY-WEIMAR will be commemorated. She was the
mastermind, who, in co-operation with the poet and statesman JOHANN
WOLFGANG VON GOETHE, transformed Weimar into a cultural centre which
would dominate the classical image of Germany for two centuries.
UNESCO has declared the city s architectural ensemble "Classical
Weimar", which was built during Anna Amalia's time, part of world
cultural heritage.

This anniversary is the ideal occasion to focus attention on a so far
unknown story about Goethe and Anna Amalia that exceeds by far their
joint cultural work. For more than 200 years this story has been
unknown to historians, despite the fact that Johann Wolfgang von
Goethe again and again has eternalised it in his poetry: the SECRET

The conference works are based on the epoch-making book "J. W. Goethe
und Anna Amalia - Eine verbotene Liebe"(cf.: http:// written by DR. ETTORE GHIBELLINO, MJUR (OXFORD).
Under the chairmanship of PROF. DR. ILSE NAGELSCHMIDT, University of
Leipzig, scholars of various disciplines will discuss in a critical
way the persuasiveness of Ghibellino's thesis along with the evidence
expounded in his book. Ghibellino's book aims to uncover an old state
secret of the Duchy Saxony-Weimar. For the first time, contemporary
sources are made available which verify that a deception was staged
using Anna Amalia's lady-in-waiting Charlotte von Stein as a front
woman. The life of Goethe now appears in a different light, his
literary works turn out to be autobiographical. The Annual
International Anna Amalia & Goethe Symposium is aimed at re-writing
literary history. Goethe and Anna Amalia tell the story of their
tragic love affair by means of a "mute speech  which makes use of
paintings, sculptures, letters and above all the poetry of Goethe,
who is universally acknowledged to be a giant of world literature.

Who should submit:
The call for papers is addressed to German scholars, scholars of
literature, lawyers, historians, historians of arts, of ethics, of
history, of the history of secret service, and others who are
interested in contributing from the point of view of their own
discipline, to the academic examination of the state secret and its
cultural and social implications. Travelling charges and an
honorarium are included. From 11-to-12-November-2006 a PREPARATORY
SESSION will be held in Weimar to co-ordinate the contributions to
the conference.

Submission deadline and procedure:
The Anna Amalia and Goethe Academy Weimar and the University of
Leipzig invites submissions of proposals for papers in German or
English. Please send a brief one-page abstract and a short biography
before 31-AUGUST-2006.
