Feuilleton and Modern Jewish Cultures

Feuilleton and Modern Jewish Cultures
The Ohio State University, Columbus OH
October 21-22, 2018
Submission deadline: August 24, 2018

In the nineteenth century, the feuilleton became a major cultural and political genre in newspapers across Europe and beyond. It was also increasingly perceived as a Jewish form, by Jewish, non-Jewish, and anti-Semitic writers. This symposium will explore the feuilleton as a meeting place for journalism, politics and literature; a locus of urban culture; a site of negotiation for transnational identities; and a rich topic for the digital humanities. We welcome papers from history, literary studies, cultural studies, journalism and other related fields and encourage a wide range of theoretical, disciplinary and linguistic approaches. Send a 250-word abstract by August 24, 2018.
