Pre-20th Century German Women Writers as Agents of Cultural Transfer
43rd Annual Convention
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
March 15-18, 2012
Rochester, New York
Host Institution: St. John Fisher College
This panel welcomes papers on pre-20th century women’s roles in cultural transfer in literary and extraliterary fields, including translation, travel, theatre and performance, education, theology, and philosophy. What social, political, and intellectual motivations instigated their use of outside sources? What cultural debates did women intervene in by inserting external material, and how were their interventions received? Did they adapt the foreign material to accommodate or challenge German culture?
Please send 250 word abstracts to both Astrid Weigert (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Claudia Winkler (email@example.com)
Abstract deadline: September 30, 2011
The 43rd Annual NeMLA Convention will feature approximately 350 sessions, as well as dynamic speakers and cultural events. The complete Call for Papers for the 2012 Convention is available at http://www.nemla.org/convention/2012/cfp.html.
Interested participants may submit abstracts to more than one NeMLA session; however, panelists can only present one paper (panel or seminar). Convention participants may present a paper at a panel and also present at a creative session or participate in a roundtable.
