First Call for Papers

The first three decades of the 20th century were a period of
irreversible social change in Germany; a period in which the conditions and
opportunities for women altered rapidly; a period in which German-Jewish artists and
writers flourished, but which also saw a frightening increase of
anti-Semitic criticism.

The writing by German-Jewish women of this period has met with rather
patchy research interest to date. While their male counterparts (Franz Hessel,
Walter Benjamin, Joseph Roth, to name but a few) have received the
interest they deserved, and while the salonières of the 19th century and the
literature produced by women in exile have received some attention in
recent years, the interest in the period 1900 to 1933 has been all but
restricted to a few outstanding women writers of the twenties and early
thirties, such as Irmgard Keun and, to a lesser extent, Gabriele Tergit.

This conference aims to re-discover and re-consider some of the many
other German-Jewish women writers of the period, be they novelists, poets,
autobiographers, or journalists, who recorded their engagement with
their social surroundings, their German-Jewish identity, and/or their
position as women at the beginning of the 20th century.

We now welcome proposals for papers (300-word abstract) to be
submitted by 15 October 2006 to:

Dr Godela Weiss-Sussex
School of Advanced Study
University of London
Senate House, Malet Street
London WC1E 7HU

A publication of a selection of the papers presented at the
conference is planned.
