Literatur und Exil
[Literature and Exile: New Perspectives]
Ed. by Bischoff, Doerte / Komfort-Hein, Susanne
Aims and Scope
This volume opens German-language research on exile to comparative and interdisciplinary studies on exile, and explores an expansion of historical and methodological perspectives that goes beyond the 1933 to 1945 time period and the long-predominant emphasis on anti-fascism. Impulses from other conceptual systems, such as post-colonialism, research in acculturation and transnationalism, translation theory, and cultural scientific research on trauma are successfully invoked to analyze the relationship between literature and exile. The book introduces these newer approaches into the discourse to generate a new impetus for further discussion.
