“ICH schreibt ein Buch. ICH hat viel erlebt, also kann ICH auch viel erzählen.” Juli Zeh begins her essay “Sag nicht Er zu mir oder: Vom Verschwinden des Erzählers im Autor” with these words, and thereby emphasizes the proliferation of first-person narratives at the beginning of the 21st century. According to Zeh, about two-thirds of all contemporary German fiction features a first-person narrator. As readers, we rely on these first-person narrators to divulge information about themselves and other characters, including their gender identities, their bodies, their environments, and their perspectives. This panel investigates strategies that authors use to disclose facts about gender and gender identity, either explicitly or implicitly, through first-person narration. What strategies for narrating gender have endured and how might these strategies be changing in light of more frequent, and more explicit, depictions of queer identities? What do these narrative strategies tell us about the ways in which gender is constructed in literature in the 21st century? And what role might narrative reliability play? We invite papers that critically examine author strategies for writing gender in the first person in contemporary texts.
