Jazz in Word: European (Non-)Fiction
International Conference

May 22-24, 2014
University of Vienna, Austria

The conference originated in a project and subsequent publication on “Jazz in German-language Literature” (2013) and aims to broaden both the thematic and geographic scope of jazz in Europe in order to examine verbalizations of jazz in the 20th century up to the present. The conference strives to bring together recent research on jazz in Western and Eastern Europe, including countries formerly in the Soviet Union.

Papers sought: papers as well as reports on works-in-progress and pre-formed panels are invited on issues related – but not restricted – to any of the following themes:

• the “jazziness” of words: imitation of jazz and other music features in verbal signs (e.g. narrative syncopation, rhythm patterns, rhetorical devices)
• the context of migration and cultural transfer of people and movements (e.g. Dadaism)
• the role of cultural mediators and (more or less) institutional networks promoting the process and works of verbalization of jazz (e.g. Joachim-Ernst Berendt in Germany or Walter Richard Langer in Austria)
• verbal sources for jazz: the verbal contributions of jazz musicians, critics, and other contemporary witnesses in oral history, interviews
• translation: translation of (English) jazz autobiographies and biographies, jazz historiographies and essays, literary “jazz”-works, etc.; e.g. the problems of translating jazz-slang
• generic and rhetorical patterns of jazz verbalizations; e.g. in novels, radio plays, radio announcements
• the experience of jazz in music and word as a European pattern of musical and cultural socialization
• new primary material in archives, estates [Nachlässen]; e.g. in former Eastern Europe
• theoretical and methodological frameworks most suitable for studying “Jazz in Words”
