Call for Papers for the 36th Annual Conference of the German Studies
Kansas City, Missouri, September 18-21, 2014
Emotions Studies Network
Deadline: January 24, 2014
To: Heikki Lempa
The Emotion Studies Network will host a series of panels at the next annual meeting of the GSA. We are calling for proposals of panels that explore emotions in the Germanic World from 1500 to the present in any field, methodology, and discipline.
Emotions have long stood at the center of research in the humanities and social sciences, providing a significant window for the study of human experience and behavior in everyday life. Over the past ten years the cultural study of emotions and affects has regained momentum. As emotions transcend disciplinary, temporal, and geographical boundaries, the study of emotions thus offers a rare opportunity for serious interdisciplinary engagement in a new key.
Since the conception of the field at the end of the nineteenth century, the study of emotions in the German-speaking world has been defined by a series of largely untenable, binary distinctions: between realism and constructivism, materialist and cultural-linguistic approaches, historical and literary criticism, microscopic and macroscopic lenses, and premodern and modern periods. We want to invite proposals from a variety of approaches and disciplines to take a critical look at these binaries.
