Neither public nor private, liminal spaces temporarily relax or suspend conventionalrestraints, social taboos and symbolic orders. This panel explores what happens in German literature/culture when individuals of different gender and class renegotiate behavioral codes and interpersonal relations in sites like hotels, foreign countries, or beaches. What power to unsettle or change do these ‘in-between’ spaces have, and are they still useful for critique today? Please send 250-500 word abstracts to (firstname.lastname@example.org) and(email@example.com).
Please include with your abstract:
