    of its next international conference.  The conference webpage can be found
    here: https://nam02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.katherinemansfieldsociety.org%2Fbad-worishofen-2020%2F&amp;data=02%7C01%7Chernandezr3%40southernct.edu%7Ca2720d25215e44da8e4008d714f35ea0%7C58736863d60e40ce95c60723c7eaaf67%7C0%7C0%7C637000907815902688&amp;sdata=nHJ0AZ33ntCbB2lQVBdNGAHyLxPsWXkJrRF%2F5YaTR9Q%3D&amp;reserved=0
    We will be hosting two international conferences in 2020 - the second one
    will take place in Menton in mid-September. Details to follow in due course.
    Katherine Mansfield: Germany and Beyond
    Bad W?rishofen, Germany
    21-22 March 2020
    An international conference organised by the Katherine Mansfield Society
    Hosted by the Bad W?rishofen Mayorality and Tourist and Spa Bureau
    Professor Claire Davison
    Sorbonne Nouvelle, Paris 3, France
    It is  well known that Katherine Mansfield?s first book of stories, *In a
    German Pension* (1911), was  inspired by her eight months? stay in the
    Bavarian spa town of W?rishofen in 1909 at the age of 21, but the
    importance of Germany and all things German in her writing has not been
    explored in any depth until recently. Although Mansfield did not return to
    Germany in the same way as she kept visiting France, her spiritual home in
    Europe, Germany continued to hold a fascination for her long after her 1909
    sojourn, and myriad associations can be traced in her fiction as well as
    her notebooks and letters.
    This two-day conference aims to open up to new scrutiny the impact of
    Germany on Mansfield?s work and life: its language, peoples and cultures.
    These range from the setting in Munich of her story ?The Little Governess?,
    to her passion for music by composers such as Beethoven, Bruch, and Wagner,
    her love of the poetry of Heinrich Heine, and literary influences such as
    the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm. Indeed, her longing for her German
    classes at Queen?s College in Harley Street because of the dashing
    Professor Walter Rippmann, reveals her early devotion. Another influence on
    her love of German and Germany is the writing of her cousin, the writer
    Elizabeth von Arnim, widow of Graf Henning von Arnim-Schlagenthin, a member
    of the Prussian aristocracy, and her friendship with Elizabeth, which
    developed during her stay in Montana,  Switzerland in the last two years of
    her life.
    It is entirely fitting that this conference will be held in Bad W?rishofen,
    a Bavarian spa town that honours Mansfield as one of its most famous
    residents and a significant cultural icon in fostering local civic pride
    and identity. Last year, on the occasion of her 130th birthday, a specially
    commissioned statue of Katherine Mansfield gazing out over the Iceberg Pond
    in the Spa Park, was unveiled.
    The Katherine Mansfield Society is therefore delighted to host, together
    with the Bad W?rishofen Mayorality and Tourist and Spa Bureau, a conference
    that aims to explore and celebrate what Germany meant to Mansfield and what
    it points to in her vision of the world.
    Suggested topics for papers might include (but are not limited to):
    ?      W?rishofen and artistic inspiration:  Mansfield?s *In a German
    Pension *
    ?      Bavaria and the *German Pension *stories: nationality, gender and
    ?      German poetry in the works of Mansfield (e.g. Heinrich Heine)

    ?      Mansfield, travel, Germany and ?beyond?
    ?      Mansfield and fairy tales
    ?      The gothic and fantastic:  Germanic sources and influences
    ?      The legacy of Mansfield in German writing today
    ?      The German reception of Mansfield?s works
    ?      German influences in Mansfield?s education (e.g. Walter Rippmann)
    ?      Translating into German / German translations of Mansfield?s work

    ?      The Germans and Germany as sources for Mansfield?s imagination
