Call for Papers – MLA 2017 (January 5-8, Philadelphia USA)
“Antisemitism and Orientalism in the Long Nineteenth Century”
Heine’s works include many that are touchstones for discussions of anti-Semitism and Orientalism: Almansor, Der Rabbi von Bacherach, Hebräische Melodien, all evocative of the intersection of Christian, Jewish, and Muslim cultures in medieval and modern times. Meanwhile, new scholarship on German Orientalism (Efron, Heschel, Kramer, Marchand) has enriched our understanding of the relation between Orientalism and anti-Semitism in nineteenth-century Central Europe. The North American Heine Society (an MLA Allied Organization) invites papers that address issues of anti-Semitism and Orientalism in relation to German-language texts. Papers centered on the work of Heine are especially welcome. Please send 250-word abstracts to Jonathan Skolnik email@example.com by 10 March.
