German Studies Symposium

The Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures presents

The 10th Annual Toronto German Studies Symposium 2017 (May 11-12)

Displaced Philologies: Translations of the Other and the German Tradition

The conference explores the multilingual origins of the German literary and cultural canon and the literary permutations of the German tradition in non-Germanic languages, literatures, and theory. By examining the role of Yiddish and other languages in the canonical formation of High German literature and culture, papers will examine the critical significance of linguistic alterity and difference at the heart of the invention of German as a language whose openness challenges the project of a nationally-defined canon.
