Fall 2016: Expanding the Scope of Horror
Guest Editors: Edmund Cueva and William Novak
The proposed set of essays and book reviews would have as its main objective to offer a new practical model for research and analysis as an alternative to the rigid and dichotomous methodologies often used in investigations on horror. Currently, most of the scholarship either tends to situate horror on the fringe of academic research and therefore not worthy of attention. Or, research isolates and defines horror as being strictly the intellectual property of those who are experts in literature or film.
The Steinheim Colloquium "Translated Memories" addresses the subject of writing about the Holocaust today : How can memories of the Holocaust be constituted and transformed in a transgenerational and transnational perspective?
Three authors (Richard Aronowitz, Carol Ascher, Doron Ben-Atar), all writing in English, and four literary scholars, hailing from Germany, Great Britain, and the U.S., will reflect on this subject based on their own and other literary texts.
The concept of translation is of pivotal interest in this context. When talking about "translation," we literally mean code switching. However, the term "translation" is also appropriate if one wants to describe psychological mechanisms and cultural processes.
The editors invite contributions to Symbolism. An International Annual of Critical Aesthetics, an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to pursuing fundamental questions on the forms and functions of the symbolic. Symbolism publishes high-profile research on topics related to the use of figurative language, thought and signification in artistic expression and representation. While maintaining a strong literary focus, the annual also inquires into practices of the symbolic across discourses in media ranging from the cinema and painting to opera, sculpture and other arts.
