This session seeks to explore the newly emerging concept of language and linguistic studies in a theoretical, poetic or historical context during the Romantic period. Papers may include topics dealing with, but not limited to: the development of new linguistic studies led by the Grimm brothers in their Deutsches Wörterbuch; the comparative linguistic studies of Friedrich von Humboldt and his search for an Ursprache; the theoretical works of August Schlegel and Friedrich Schleiermacher; and any number of poetic literary works that demonstrate a decidedly gendered and/or aesthetic linguistic program. Papers can be either in German or English. 300-word abstracts should be submitted no later than October 7, 2012 to Dr. Christine Rapp Dombrowski email@example.com.
