The 18th century German literary landscape is marked by increased cultural transfer via travel and translation. This panel seeks to explore the influence and/or impact of this transnational tendency on such genres as the bürgerliches Trauerspiel, the weinerliches Rührstück (comedie larmoyante), the Briefroman, Reiseliteratur and others, including poetry. Who are the agents pushing this transnational process, how important are gender considerations in this context? How does this process manifest in genre-specific terms?
Please send abstracts of about 250 words to both Astrid Weigert (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Carolyn Osinski (email@example.com).
DEADLINE: September 30, 2010
