Bildung Across Languages

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 21, 2017

The contemporary Bildungsroman has become a de-centered and globalised genre. An important consequence of this diversification has been the increasingly numerous representations of Bildung across languages. The impact that linguistic diversity and language ideologies have on the ways in which present-day stories of Bildung are told, received, and passed on has yet to be examined in a sustained fashion. After all, the Bildungsroman emerged as a literary genre contemporaneously with the advent of European modernity.

The panel will explore three questions: Is it possible to establish a precise relationship between Jacques Lacan and post-modernist literature in general?

Focusing on the Oedipus conflict as it developed in Lacan, can one establish relationships between Lacan and post-modernist writers?

 

This panel has two underlying goals.
