Call to junior researchers

On Wednesday, 22 May, 2013, the German Literature Research Group of the Department of Literary Studies at Ghent University organises a workshop on Literature and Economy as Mutually Shaping Discourses since European Enlightenment. Goal of the workshop is to bring together insights from different linguistic and cultural traditions (Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Latin, Scandinavian or Spanish) into the interplay between literature and economy.

Thematically, we want to address such issues as:
(1) the ways in which predominant economic theories inform contemporary (i.e. from the late 17th and 18th century onward) literature,
(2) the equi- or multivocality of literary discourse in consolidating as well as eroding and even altering economic aspects of power/authority, and
(3) the contribution of both literary and economic discourse to the larger complex of institutionalized production of cultural meaning and identity.
Major methodological influences informing this topic include the – early – Foucauldian discourse-concept as well as theories of poststructuralism that build on Foucault (Greenblatt’s cultural poetics, gender and postcolonial studies).

The workshop organisers are committed to giving a forum to junior researchers as well. Therefore, we invite two young researchers (PhD or postdoc) with demonstrated expertise in the field to deliver a 30-minute presentation of their original research results at the workshop.

Candidates are invited to send an e-mail with a cv, a list of publications and a 250-word abstract to by 8 April, 2013.

Traveling expenses and accommodation will be covered by the conference organisers; a special issue of the peer reviewed scholarly journal Phrasis. Studies in Language and Literature will be devoted to the topic of the workshop. Submissions to this special issue (fit for blind peer review) can be sent to the same e-mail address.
