BeschreibungNotre Dame Berlin Seminar July 3 – 14, 2016

Faculty and advanced graduate students are invited to participate in this distinctive seminar series, which will bring American scholars of German literary and cultural studies together with experts and leading figures of Germany’s literary scene.

Among the confirmed speakers are Michael Braun (literary critic, Heidelberg), Ulrich von Bülow (Deutsches Literaturarchiv Marbach), Sabine Doering (Universität Oldenburg), Bernhard Fischer (Goethe und Schiller-Archiv, Weimar), Barbara Honigmann (writer, Berlin), Helmuth Kiesel (Universität Heidelberg), Norbert Lange (writer, Berlin), Birte Lipinksi (Heinrich und Thomas Mann-Zentrum, Lübeck), Edo Reents (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung), Steffen Richter (Universität Braunschweig) and Thedel v. Wallmoden (Wallstein Verlag, Göttingen).

Participants will have the opportunity to engage personally with representatives from different areas of Germany’s vibrant literary field. Throughout the seminar, they will not simply read about, study, and discuss the Literaturbetrieb, but rather will be asked to apply what they learned in practice. Members of the seminar will also have the opportunity to conduct interviews with the authors, and consult with publishers, editors, and literary critics.

Afternoons will be spent focused on writing projects, continued structured conversation on ideas and questions raised by the morning presentation, or site visits in different parts of Berlin. Each week will culminate in an afternoon symposium addressing overarching questions of the Notre Dame Berlin Seminar.
