When Time Becomes Form: Kubler, Jolles, Kracauer / Eva Geulen

Morphological techniques such as a serialization have had a considerable impact on a variety of attempts to model historical time (for example, George Kubler or André Jolles). Siegfried Kracauer’s unfinished last book History – The Last Things before the Last, published posthumously in 1969, offers a surprising twist on shaping time and also functions as a channel through which morphology is in touch with post-war reflections on history and historiography on the part of Hans Blumenberg and Reinhart Koselleck.

Eva Geulen is the director of the Center for Literary and Cultural Research (ZfL), professor at the Department for Cultural History and Theory at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and has headed the research project ‘Time and Form in Motion. Goethe’s Morphology and Its Afterlife in 20th-Century Theory’, part of the DFG-Priority Programme ‘Ästhetische Eigenzeiten’. Her most recent monograph is Aus dem Leben der Form: Goethes Morphologie und die Nager (2016).
