TitelDas Fremde und das Eigene/The Self and the Other in German Literature, Culture and Society
BeschreibungGerman Studies Association of Australia (GSAA) International Conference, November 26-28, 2014.

At the beginning of the 21st century Germanistik faces questions of self and other on a global scale. Over the past decade Germanistik has ceded ground to intercultural German Studies (Interkulturelle Germanistik). Has German Studies outgrown its post-war identity to become global and transnational? If so, how do questions of language and cultural specificity impact on literary studies in the German-speaking lands? Does this involve loss as well as gain? Indeed was German Studies ever a unified affair, or has it been international, pluricentric and transcultural since its beginnings in the Romantic period? Are there areas of literary and cultural specificity that resist translation and cross-cultural understanding? Or is it precisely the task of German Studies to render these phenomena of a global world comprehensible?

Moreover the themes of self and other are essential to the task of language-learning. How do we conceptualise the self and the other in language studies? How do we as language learners deal with the challenges to our selves implicit in foreign language learning? How can language pedagogy engage productively with broader issues of culture and identity in the classroom and in the context of the teaching and learning demands of tertiary level language courses?
The German Studies Association of Australia (GSAA) is now calling for papers addressing the themes of self and other in German Studies (including literature, film, history and cultural studies) worldwide. Possible lines of approach might include:
➢ Self and Other as themes of German literary, film and cultural studies
➢ Immigration, religion and diversity in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
➢ Diverging and converging identities in German culture: nationalities, minorities, genders.
➢ Australia, New Zealand and Germany in film and literature
➢ German Film as a European and global phenomenon
➢ Latest trends in research on foreign language acquisition
➢ Language acquisition as a form of engagement with the other and development of self.

Historical and social approaches to the study of the German-speaking lands and populations of Europe are welcome alongside literary, film and cultural studies and language pedagogy. Further areas of interest and/or specialisation are welcome and will be accommodated in this broad-ranging program.

Papers should not exceed 20 mintues in length of presentation, so as to leave time for discussion (10 minutes). All potential participants are invited to submit a presentation title and astract (250 words) to the email address below by July 1, 2014 (later submissions will be considered). Conference languages are GERMAN and ENGLISH.

The Conference Committee consists of Prof. Peter Morgan, Associate Professor Yixu Lu, Dr. Andrea Bandhauer, and Dr. Tristan Lay.
