Volksschriften für Volk und Bürger

Die Publizistik der Volksschriftenvereine in den 1840er-Jahren

Jesko Reiling

Abstract

In the 1840 s, a new type of educational association (Bildungsverein) emerged in the form of the secular Volksschriftenvereine. The publications of these societies clearly show their heterogeneity in terms of content and program. At the same time, the publications ensured the integration of the genre of folk-literature (Volksliteratur) into the existing traditional literary and literary-critical discourse, establishing it in the literary field.
