TitelGerman Literature and Culture from 1700-1890 at South Central MLA
BeschreibungSouth Central Modern Language Association (SCMLA) 2014 Conference, October 18-22, 2014 in Austin, Texas

GERMAN II: Literature and Culture from 1700 to 1890
Open Topic: Abstracts are invited that discuss any aspect of Germanophone literature from 1700-1890. Topics reflecting the conference theme are encouraged, but not required.

The conference theme is: “Forces of Nature: The Elements and Aesthetic Production”:
“Humankind’s reverent, impassioned and, at times, embattled relationship with nature has informed artistic production from its birth until today. The natural elements impact whether we merely survive or thrive, but the natural world also serves as one of our most important sources of aesthetic inspiration and critical inquiry. The oral traditions and texts of early civilizations worship the elements as deities; Homer’s Odyssey and other classical works investigate the impacts and repercussions of hedonism on the environment; and Medieval tomes such as Dante’s Commedia use landscape models to map cultural terrain. Moving forward, Enlightenment and, later, Romanticist thinkers begin to engage in a secular study of nature, while Modernism responds to the vastly changed environmental — and cultural — landscapes brought about by industrialism, innovation and alienation. In our current era beyond the post-modern, we benefit from many new veins of theoretical inquiry and criticism related to the complex relationship between nature and culture, from Ecosemiotics to Animal Studies and beyond. Please join us in exploring these themes and more in Austin, Texas for the 2014 South Central MLA conference. Papers on the conference theme and on all topics are welcome.”

By March 31, 2014, please send one-page abstracts by e-mail to or via post to Edward T. Potter, Department of Classical & Modern Languages and Literatures, Mississippi State University, P. O. Box FL, Mississippi State, MS 39762 USA.
