TitelGSA-Panel: Rethinking Modernism after Culture Studies
BeschreibungThis seminar will explore the way in which cultural studies and its related interdisciplinary methodologies have transformed—and continue to transform—academic debates over the concept of “modernism,” as it is used to designate the aesthetic plurality of the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth centuries. We envision this rethinking as an intervention into current debates in German studies, cultural studies, and visual studies. In this seminar, we will bring together scholars from a broad spectrum of disciplines that examine culture in order to update our understanding of the term “modernism.” In light of the analytical mining of cultural phenomena in the last two decades, we seek to pose new questions of modernism, such as: How do conceptions of periodization and genre assist or detract from a definition of modernism informed by cultural studies? Are the conventional tropes of plurality, crisis, individualization, urbanization, psychologization, paranoia, subjectivity, etc. strengthened or weakened by recent scholarship? How can broader current epistemological and institutional debates, such as on failure or on economic and social crises, contribute to a more refined understanding of modernism? How can specific cases of aesthetic analysis be abstracted in order to lend a more nuanced interpretation of broader cultural trends?
