Call for Papers:
Papers are invited for an international Stefan Zweig Symposium to be held at SUNY
Fredonia on Oct 1-3 2009. This symposium, the first major scholarly event on Zweig
to take place in the United States in over two decades, intends to bring together
scholars, artist, critics, and students from around the world to discuss Zweig’s life
and works. It will include keynote lectures by Klaus Weissenberger (Rice University)
and Zweig biographer Oliver Matuschek as well as a manuscript exhibition with archival
materials from SUNY Fredonia’s extensive Stefan Zweig collection. The symposium will
also feature the United States premiere of Sylvio Back’s award-winning feature film
Lost Zweig (2003) in the presence of the director.
All paper presentations will be plenary. There is no registration fee for this conference.
