German Studies Association Conference Louisville, Kentucky 2011
"Cultural Constructions of Identity" or "Identity through Images or the Visual in Modern Germany”
The papers in this panel will explore the significance and meaning of “visual culture” and the “visual turn” for German studies, whether as a methodological approach, an object of study, or a framework for greater interdisciplinarity between history, literature, art history, film studies, and anthropology.
Papers might also consider the specific uses and abuses of visual evidence in German politics, society, and culture and how attention to “scopic regimes” might re-frame our approaches to periodization and interpretation.
The panel of two grad students seeks an assistant or associate professor to fill the spot of our third panelist.
Please submit a 200 word abstract by Feb 12, 2011.
