    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    How did female German-Jewish writers negotiate issues of femininity, Jewishness, and urban experience at the beginning of the 20th century? Godela Weiss-Sussex describes the evolution of multi-dimensional portrayals of the personal and societal place of the “German Jewish woman” in these intersecting discourses. She combines this with an analysis of the aesthetic and communicative structures of the texts, making visible the strategies these writers used to attract a wide readership and the literary and intellectual traditions in which they placed themselves.
