Following World War II, Werkimmanente Literaturwissenschaft (New Criticism) was the prominent form of literary analysis. Bettina Gruber defines werkimmanent as “[…] every attempt at literary criticism […] that limits itself to an occupation with the work, respectively the text, and dismisses everything else as ‘peripheral’ (Umfeld)” (2009: 763).11 Thus, it is not far- fetched to imagine that race would be considered part of the “Umfeld

A literary travelogue in the tradition of Sterne’s A Sentimental Journey combines the features of both guidebook and novel.

In other words, I want to capture the moment in which a guidebook becomes a novel, while retaining the use of the index as a sign that points. For this aim

sanction one mode of explaining over another.15 The proliferation into the literary field of a re-analysis of the nature of narrative, and of the distrust of the authority and objectivity of historical sources and accounts is accentuated by new styles of writing as well as the plurality of alternative sources of information and their interpretation.16 In order to establish a relation and continuity with these developments in literature and the related emancipation in literary analysis, I will categorize my corpus as literary documentaries.

Diesem Aufsatz von 1971 ist zu entnehmen, dass Helbig Anleihen bei Pierre Bertaux machte; mit der Ausnahme allerdings, dass die Sprache, die in seinem Institut benutzt wurde, nicht die deutsche, sondern die englische war. Während des Frühjahrs-Semesters von 1972 hatte Helbig bereits seine erste German Stu- dies-Tagung organisiert.

As the title already indicates, Said here devoted particular attention to the role of the media in shaping public discourse. His method again relied on a historical but also literary analysis of Western media representations of Islam and the Middle East which demonstrated in how far a number of recurring stereotypes have come to dominate the global view of Arabs. The title of the book thus works as a

, dedicated to a cultural and literary analysis of mentality, for example by Vera Nünning (2001, 2004), Ansgar Nünning (2004a, 2004c) and the multifarious tex- tual approaches in Kamm and Sedlmayr’s (2007) collection, proceed in a similar fashion and sketch essential elements of (past) cultures before exploring a pre-defined mentality in the discursive manifestations or modification of the selected texts. By contrast, the present study offers an interdisciplinary methodological approach of culture, literature and mentality that allows for the deciphering of mental
