Canonical Authors

Philadelphia, January 5-8, 2017

In his magisterial world history of the nineteenth century, Die Verwandlung der Welt (2009), Jürgen Osterhammel suggests that the only German-language author from that century still read by the general public is Theodor Fontane. Wilhelm Raabe, Adalbert Stifter, and even Gottfried Keller – let alone more marginal authors – have become “Pflegefälle der Germanistik.” True or not, Osterhammel’s pronouncement points to the precarious status of German-language nineteenth century authors, especially when viewed from an international perspective. Proposals are invited that explore the particular contribution of literary works of canonical authors like the ones mentioned above and others such as Droste-Hülshoff, Ebner-Eschenbach, and C.F. Meyer. Comparative perspectives are welcome.
