Bildung Across Languages

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.

"Fear and Anxiety in Contemporary Drama and Performance": 27th Annual CDE Conference, University of Hildesheim (Germany), 31 May to 3 June 2018

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 15, 2017

In an increasingly news-saturated world – or even, a news-controlled one – contemporary Western social and cultural discourse is preoccupied with narratives of fear and anxiety. Especially after the events of 11 September 2001, there has been a significant increase in plays and productions representing events, contexts, people, and situations that relate to these themes. Meanwhile, we are encouraged to be afeared of: the anonymous or digital other, the unknown or unexplainable (such as disappearing planes), the collapse of capitalism (and the bankers who caused it), fake news and ‘post-truths’, and the rise of the political right (or left).
