BeschreibungCall for Papers: Hidden Violence in Modern German Culture
German Studies Association, Kansas City, Missouri, September 18-21, 2014

Like powerful currents roiling beneath the apparently placid surface of a lake, violent sentiments, actions or contexts are ideally suited to concealment within smoothed or distracting exteriors. From romanticized depictions of war (In Stahlgewittern, Triumph des Willens) to apparently calm domestic scenes that reveal their violent underpinnings under the slightest interpretive pressure (Effi Briest, Die Verwandlung, Das weiße Band), prose and film are particularly successful at lulling the reader or viewer into forgetting visceral realities. Mediation comes to the aid of bare life to cloak it in palliative illusion. Yet whatever the medium, the facade is never perfect, and details of form, content, or context often intrude on the consciousness, hastening the eventual uncovering of a violent core. The turbulent histories of German-speaking lands, particularly in the 20th century, provide a rich ground on which to explore this thematic. Our panel interrogates the textual and visual techniques by which violence is folded into narrative, either on the level of form or on the level of content. How do texts elide or ignore the violence of the period in which they are written? Is it ever possible to completely conceal “off-screen” or implied acts of violence, and by what means are such deceptions attempted? And when the repressed make its inevitable return, how does it do so? We welcome papers relating to the hiding and revelation of violence, whether historical or intra-textual, as well as theorizations of this phenomenon divorced from any particular literary text or period.

Please send abstracts (in English or German) of no more 400 words to Maya Vinokour (vinokour [at] by February 14. Please be aware that should your proposal be accepted, you must be a member of the GSA at the time of the panel's submission.
