Boston/Harvard University, March 17th-20th, 2016

In the last decade(s) media and cultural studies have become significantly transformed by German post-Kittlerian media theory, specifically the notion of cultural techniques (Kulturtechniken) – or the operations and practices that precede and underlie specific media and that serve to create or cultivate cultural order. Among its rich research potential across the humanities, the concept of cultural techniques bridges the gap between the media-technical and the cultural, revealing a wealth of new opportunities and challenges for literature in terms of the media that it shapes and is shaped by. If cultural techniques are sorts of a-priori actions behind and before the signs and systems that emerge from them (for example the practice of counting before formal mathematics, reading and writing before formal alphabets, etc.), then notions of literature and literary production take on new forms of significance. What are the cultural technical operations of and in literature? How do reading strategies and literary criticism reflect or refute cultural techniques? What is the role of literature in cultural technical operations or what the anthropologist Marcel Mauss called “techniques of the body”? In what ways do literary techniques emerge from or determine cultural techniques and media? This seminar invites reflection on cultural techniques for literary studies. We welcome a broad range of contributions on both the media-technical theory of cultural techniques and its implications for literary study as well as papers that examine the role of literature in depicting and disseminating such notions.
