Meeting Description: 

''Language is not simply means for understanding, but the impression
of the mind and world-view of the speaker. [. . .] That is why the
learning of a foreign language is the achievement of a new standpoint
in the present world.'' 
Wilhelm von Humboldt

When our personal narratives no longer intersect, due to the
fragmentary, heteroglossic nature of identity construction in the
postmodern era, how do we create community or a sense of it? What
roles do language, ideology and power play in community formation?
And how does the meaning-making subject interact with and through the
semiotic systems of its communities? The graduate students of the
German Department at the University of California at Berkeley welcome
scholars from across the disciplines to engage in this theoretical
discussion.
				
We are open to submissions in any time period from the medieval to the
present. We are also interested in submissions that approach these
questions from other perspectives in the humanities. Possible areas
of investigation include but are not limited to:

-Literary Cults / Salons 
-Secret Societies 
-Missionary Groups: Religious and Otherwise 
-Theories of Gemeinschaft 
-Comedy & Community 
-Pedagogical Implications 
-Linguistic Nationalism/Linguistic Hegemony 
-Narrativizing Community 
-Communal Images 
-Lost in Translation? 
-German Reunification 
-German Idealism and Philosophies of Language 
-Conceptual Blending & the Arts 
-A Global Cinema? 
-Stunde Null / Kahlschlagliteratur 
-Mystical communities 
-Romantic subjects 

The language of the conference is English, but submissions in German
are also welcome. In some cases we may be able to provide a travel
subsidy. Please mail or email a one page abstract with a separate
cover sheet indicating your name, affiliation, address, phone number
and email address to:
