BeschreibungLiterary Studies and the New Phenomenology; GSA 2013 (Denver, CO)

Hermann Schmitz' work and the Neue Phänomenologie are growing in recognition

among German literary scholars as well as theorists around the globe who

are working on questions of space. However, his nuanced conceptions of

feeling also offer insight into questions of affect and emotion that have been

important in literary studies in recent years. How does Schmitz’s articulation

of Gefühl as Atmosphäre resonate with current debates about the distinction

between emotion and affect? How does Schmitz’s history of feeling fit with

the history of emotions as reflected in literary texts? How does his politics of

emotions come into conversation with the political and ideological meanings

assigned to emotions in specific texts? Papers are invited that explore the

implications of Schmitz’s philosophy for thinking about affect and emotion in

literature. We are particularly interested in papers that:

- open perspectives on concrete literary texts from the early modern period to
the contemporary as read against the backdrop of Schmitz’s phenomenology;

- use and expand Schmitz’s phenomenology in order to explore historic shifts
in the understanding and distinction of emotion, affect, and atmosphere;

- point out the methodological and conceptual limits of Schmitz’s theory in the
context of literary studies, genre studies, and poetics.

We seek 15- to 20-minute papers, in English or German. Please send an

abstract (~250 words) and a brief CV that includes institutional affiliation by

FEBRUARY 10th, 2013, to both Jan Jost-Fritz ( AND
