UPDATE: Reading Benjamin Reading, ACLA Vancouver (Deadline: 11/12/10; Conference: 3/31/11-4/3/11)

full name / name of organization:

In 1927, exactly one hundred years after Goethe first used the term “Weltliteratur,” Walter Benjamin returned to Berlin from Moscow. He had spent his time there reporting on developments in Russian literature and film, and he arrived to find that his German translation of Marcel Proust’s Within a Budding Grove had been published to strong reviews. Such multi-lingual and multi-national literary undertakings are central to Benjamin’s entire corpus. While not a major figure in most narratives of world literature, Benjamin’s involvement and theoretical interest in questions of translation, media, and cultural history suggest ways of placing him in these important contexts. But how do we read Benjamin’s own reading? This seminar invites papers on Benjamin’s own voracious reading and critical commentary, from major essays like “Unpacking My Library” to casual evidence of his reading preferences, such as the mention of William Faulkner’s Light In August in one of Benjamin’s final letters to Theodor Adorno.

At our second annual Association of English Graduate Students Symposium, we wish to explore the many ways that identity manifests itself as an object for study. The concept of identity permeates every text, from its narrator’s organizing gaze to the the genre in which it is catalogued. Indeed, we invite you to question the term “text” itself, as “text” has come to be identified as anything from a novel to a Facebook page to a film.
