Germanistik im Umbruch – Literatur und Kultur

The works compiled here illustrate some of the thematic and methodological issues that are currently raised in German literature and culture studies. The work is divided into two broad sections. The first one has the title Literature – Identity – Memory and it integrates essays on the literature of migrant writers and on the literary elaboration of the past. In the section Literature interdisziplinär we find interdisciplinary contributions that provide new impetus to literary studies addressing aspects such as literary and cultural transfer processes or interdisciplinary perspectives on the interpretation of the text. Also included in this part are examples of digital processing of literary data.
