Join The Society of Fellows and Heyman Center for the Humanities for their New Book Series event honoring To the Collector Belong the Spoils: Modernism and the Art of Appropriation by Annie Pfeifer. To the Collector Belong the Spoils rethinks collecting as an artistic, revolutionary, and appropriative modernist practice. Through a constellation of three author-collectors—Henry James, Walter Benjamin, and Carl Einstein—Pfeifer examines the relationship between literary modernism and twentieth-century practices of collecting objects.
Professor Pfeifer will be joined by Bruce Robbins, professor in the English Department, along with fellow panelists Claudia Breger, Andreas Huyssen, and Kristina C. Mendicino.
Wednesday, March 22, 2023, 6:15 pm EST | In person at the Deutsches Haus and online via Zoom.
