American Comparative Literature Association annual meeting 2016
Harvard University, Boston
March 17-20, 2016

Deadline for proposals: September 23, 2015

Amidst fighting and political debate, it is easy to forget the human encounters that occur when artificially-formed groups of men and women are pinned against one another in war. This seminar seeks to explore literary representations of such encounters in 20th century wars, focusing on Eastern Europe and the Middle East. In the centennial years of World War I and the Armenian genocide, this panel will consider how writers narrate the break-up of the multiethnic Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman Empires--and how successor generations negotiate imposed cultural and religious division in their narratives. Central questions for consideration include: How do literary representations of multicultural encounters agitate or reframe traditional conceptions of power for the reader? Does story-telling allow authors to accuse or excuse? Expand or limit? Examples may include, but are not limited to, fiction and films on the Eastern front in the First and Second World Wars (Gallipoli, the Balkans), the Armenian genocide, and Colonial conflicts in the Middle East and Africa.
