Registration for Seminar

Institute of Literature, Folklore and Art kindly invites you to register for participation in the seminar held on September 08, 2021, 3:00PM. Dirk Göttsche, Professor of German at University of Nottingham (United Kingdom), will present the paper Literary Playing Fields in Motion: Remapping Nineteenth-Century Realism.

Based on the outcomes of the edited volume Landscapes of Realism: Rethinking literary realism in comparative perspectives (Amsterdam: John Benjamins, 2021), the paper suggests a reconceptualization and remapping of nineteenth-century realism as a multi-stranded and multi-phased dynamic embracing Europe’s language areas in a complex and polyphonous landscape of joint concerns and shared modes of representation, but also diverse voices and productive tensions that create a multidimensional set of playing fields (Spielräume) in motion.

Seminar will be held in distance, via Zoom platform. In order to receive a link for access, please, register here.

Seminar will be held in English.
