‘The German Masculine and “the Other”’

31 October 2009, University of Edinburgh

David Hume Tower, Conference Room
George Square
Edinburgh EH8 9JX

Organiser: Frauke Matthes

The colloquium gives an account of the manifestations of masculinity in the German literary and cultural imagination as a result of cultural exchange and interaction as well as shifting gender perceptions throughout history. The contributions focus on the interrelation between masculinity, ethnicity, and ‘deviancy’ for the construction of a national and cultural self.
