CULTURAL FOOTPRINTS 1945-1955: THE ALLIED FORCES' INFLUENCE ON AUSTRIAN
LITERATURE AND CULTURE

An International Conference at the University of London
Thursday, 28 - Friday, 29 May 2009

Co-Ordinators: Dr. Martin Liebscher (IGRS, University of London) and
Heide Kunzelmann (Aston University)


CALL FOR PAPERS

In the aftermath of the 50th anniversary of the Austrian State Treaty, the question of the Allied Forces' influence on Post-war Austria has become more important than ever, not only in the general discourse about the Second Republic's political and cultural identity but also in the discussion of Austria's current position in the international relational network of the European Union. Without doubt, the 'Four in the Jeep' represented a singular political and cultural set-up in European History that had an impact on Austria's political, societal and cultural structures and concepts that is still detectable today. This conference seeks to explore the 'cultural footprint' the French, American, English and Soviet 'Besatzung' left between 1945 and 1955, with a special emphasis on literature and the performing arts. It aims to discuss the way in which the allied presence influenced the import of Romanic, Anglo-American and Slavic aesthetic traditions, concepts and structures into Austrian post-war literature, e.g. within the scope of the 're-education programme' or the political 'sectorization' of Austria.

Contributions from different areas of research, such as political history or discourse analysis will serve as a framework for literary case studies of individual authors.


Papers dealing with (aspects of) the following topics are especially welcome:

* 'Cultural Sectorization': What was the Allied Forces' structural and conceptual influence on Post-war Austria's literary and theatre market between 1945 and 1955?

* What was the Allied Forces' influence on the formation of an 'Austrian national literature' after 1945, drawing on aspects of corpus-building, censorship and attempts to bring back exiled writers?

* What role did the 're-education programme' play in shaping post-war Austrian culture?

* How can the intersection of allied and Austrian pop-culture be defined and to what degree was the relation of high and pop culture influenced by this?

* Case studies of individual authors


Please send proposals (no longer than 300 words) and a short cv (no longer than 1 page) to Martin Liebscher martin.liebscher@sas.ac.uk by 31 August 2008.
