2010 Turn-of-the Century European Literary and Cultural History: A New Approach (Centre for British Studies, Berlin)

The 2010 Berlin workshop was the first meeting of a core group of scholars interested in the challenges of writing transnational literary and cultural histories of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. The day was divided into two sessions. The morning focused on approaches (comparative literature, imagology, cultural exchange, and transnational history/histoire croisée). The afternoon on case studies of authors whose works resist standard literary periodisation as well as straightforward national and genre classification (Yvan Goll, Mina Loy and Oscar Wilde).
