|Beschreibung||Special Issue of Seminar on the eighteenth-century German novel
We are seeking contributions to a special issue of Seminar dedicated to the theory and practice of the German novel of the eighteenth century.
Our aim is to bring together new research that showcases a variety of approaches to classic as well as less familiar works. In particular, we seek articles that theorize both the novel and its place in eighteenth-century German and European culture in a broader, programmatic fashion.
Questions we hope the volume can explore include the following:
* How do new approaches to narrative, genre, mediality, gender and eighteenth-century culture more generally allow us to rethink the significance of the novel during this pivotal period in the genre’s history?
* To what extent do recent developments in interdisciplinary narrative theory and in new approaches to eighteenth-century cultural production (via post-colonial theory, theories of world literature, media theory, theories of affect, embodiment, and cognition, notions of ‘distant’ reading, etc) position us to re-read the novels of this period within a larger disciplinary context?
* As we know, the eighteenth century witnessed the emergence of the novel as a unique theoretical object—what is the significance of the proliferation of discourse on and about the novel in this period? What is the significance of eighteenth-century theories of the novel for us today?
