Transatlantic Encounters: Modernism in the Visual Arts and in Anglophone Literature
 

Having flourished between the turn of the 20th century and World War II, modernism challenged established codes and pre-existing artistic conventions. Across the disciplines, artists sought new forms of expression in response to contemporary thinkers and to the cultural, political and scientific transformations that shaped the era. In search of new forms of expression, the visual arts and literature examined new ways of representing reality and human experience which questioned the mimetic tradition that had been established in Antiquity and rejected the conventions that shaped 19th century art. In music, composers challenged conventional tonality, and in the field of dance, choreographers and performers rebelled against balletic and interpretive conventions, while in painting, sculpture or photography an abstract, nonrepresentational and sometimes even self-referential artistic language is explored. Although driven by the overall endeavor to “make it new,” as Ezra Pound put it, modernism was by no means a homogeneous movement and the term denotes in fact a plurality of modernisms with a multitude of aesthetic trajectories and responding to various cultural contexts.

This course will pursue an interdisciplinary approach to transatlantic modernism. We will examine innovative and groundbreaking artistic practices in the visual arts, such as paintings, sculptures, mixed-media and photography, and in Anglophone literatures. Our focus will be on the encounters and rich exchanges between visual and literary artists (as for example, between Gertrude Stein, Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, between William Carlos Williams and Alfred Stieglitz or between Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven and Marcel Duchamp) in various artistic circles, groups and salons in “hotspots” of modernism, such as Paris, London and New York and along major exhibitions such as the Armory Show. We will consider various modernist movements, such as Cubism, Futurism, Dada, modernist paintings and photography in the visual arts, and Imagism, the Expatriates, and the Harlem Renaissance in Anglophone literature and discuss the seminal works of their key figures.

The interdisciplinary course will combine subjects from Art History and American Literature and Culture. It will be taught in German and English. Although it is possible to present and discuss in German as well, a good understanding and reading comprehension of the English language is a prerequisite for participation.

Critical Plant Studies

Inhalt

FÜSQ: Critical Plant Studies

    
Having emerged in the early 2010s, Critical Plant Studies is an interdisciplinary – “cross-pollinating” – approach situated between environmental humanities, biology, philosophy, the arts and aesthetics that examines concepts of plant life, vegetal alterity and human-plant interactions. Critical Plant Studies challenge traditional notions that reduce plants to passivity, such as the roles of ornaments and symbols, by granting the vegetal agency, intelligence or “mindless mastery” (Anthony Trewavas), and communicative abilities.
This course will examine the vegetal turn in the Humanities. We will focus on Critical Plant Studies’ seminal theorists, such as Michael Marder, Luce Irigaray, Matthew Hall and Randy Laist, and on novels and short fictions dealing with vegetal perspective and vegetal alterity, with horror plants and with human-plant interactions.

Required Texts:
Ursula K. Le Guin. The Word for World is Forest.
Jeff Vandermeer. Annihilation.
John Boyd. The Pollinators of Eden.
Richard Powers. The Overstory.

 

Additional texts will be made available on ILIAS
