CfP: "The Conversations in the Realm of the Dead:" An Eighteenth-Century Genre and Its Historical Context (GSA 2015)

The Conversations in the Realm of the Dead (Gespräche im Reich derer Todten) were an incredibly popular genre in eighteenth-century Europe. Between the first decade of the eighteenth century and about 1810, at least 700 such Conversations were published in Germany alone. For the September 2015 meeting of the German Studies Association in Washington, D.C., we seek proposals for papers on different aspects of the Conversations. We welcome proposals from historians and German literature specialists, established scholars and graduate students.
