Conference to be at the University of London, Senate House
13-15 September 2017

The Research Centre for German and Austrian Exile Studies, Institute of Modern Languages Research, University of London, invites offers of papers for its triennial conference in September 2017.

The Nazi seizure of power in central Europe resulted in several waves of forced emigration, first from Germany, later from the Saarland, Austria, and Czechoslovakia. The trajectories and destinations of this emigration westward to France, the UK, or the USA have been analyzed extensively in Exile Studies. But in recent years, alternative routes and destinations of emigration have been identified: Margit Franz and Heimo Halbrainer, for example, proposed in Going East - Going South (Graz: Clio 2014) a 'new map of emigration' demonstrating that many individuals and groups from Austria had emigrated to Asia or Africa. The conference organized by the Research Centre for German and Austrian Exile Studies for September 2017 proposes to develop this 'new map' further, by focusing on the emigration to areas under British control. These included the dominions, colonies and other overseas territories of the former British Empire. Besides the following key areas, we would welcome methodological or theoretical papers relating to recent approaches in Exile Studies, such as hybridity, acculturation or identity. Key words / key areas of the conference are:

* pathways: networks, relief and bureaucracy
* cultural and intellectual transfer
* emigrants in the commercial, industrial and entrepreneurial fields
* emigrants in the arts, sciences and universities
* emigrants in the press, politics and public life
* emigrants in the performing arts, music and the theatre
* the development of a refugee social and religious culture overseas
* the everyday life of refugees in overseas exile
* the status of refugees between colonizers and colonized, including the postcolonial perspective of exchanges/communication between the centre and the periphery
* strategies of integration and remigration

Please send a brief CV and a proposal of no more than 300 words by 15 September 2016, to abgrenville@blueyonder.co.uk and/or Swen.Steinberg@tu-dresden.de>.

The conference will be organized and coordinated by Dr Anthony Grenville (London), Dr Jana Buresova (London), and Dr Swen Steinberg (Dresden/Los Angeles). Selected extended papers will be published in the Yearbook of the Research Centre for German and Austrian Exile Studies.
