Architecture and Literature
41st Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) April 7-11, 2010
Montreal, Quebec - Hilton Bonaventure
The architecture that surrounds us instructs our perception of the world on a daily basis. Urban landscapes, buildings, and the rooms, that we live in affect our thinking and also inform literature. This panel seeks to examine the dynamic and complex relationships between architecture and literature on multiple levels: On the one hand, it is conceived of as a forum for methodological reflection on theoretical approaches, which try to conceptualize the relationship between architecture and literature as different forms of art. Whereas the role of architecture was frequently discussed in nineteenth-century aesthetics (e.g. Hegel, Schopenhauer and Vischer) and famously brought to attention again by Benjamin in the early twentieth century, contemporary aesthetics only rarely focus on it (the majority of recent studies on intermediality don’t even mention architecture). How can we conceptualize the way architecture and literature mutually inform each other as two different and yet interrelated aesthetic discourses? On the other hand, the panel welcomes proposals for papers, which explore the use of architectural tropes in literary texts, as well as the use of literary strategies in architectural theory. By analyzing possible interrelations from these different perspectives, the panel challenges the tendency of literary criticism to disregard architecture, and draws attention to architecture’s importance for aesthetic theory.
