Description

This one-day workshop in the context of the "Eighteenth- and Nineteenth-Century Literature Travelling Seminar" seeks to reflect on the implications of the concern for the reader and reading in eighteenth-century fiction as well as considering how this issue is handled in contemporary literature. The workshop will include discussion of different critical approaches to (literary/fiction) reading and readers. This methodological aspect of the workshop is relevant to doctoral students in literature across literary periods. The workshop will consist of a lecture and a seminar session led by Dr Dorothee Birke and will also include a discussion round among participants to give doctoral students the opportunity to outline briefly how issues of reading matter in their own research and/or to address the problems or questions raised by issues of reading for their work. This discussion round can also be combined with a longer presentation by a doctoral student if one of the participants would like to present part of her/his work that relates to the workshop topic.
