Beschreibung“Verfreundete Nachbarn”: The German‐Austrian Encounter in Literature, Film and Cultural Discourse
Annual Symposium of the Modern Austrian Literature and Culture Association

April 23 – 26, 2009
Emory University, Atlanta

Austrians and Germans have always shared a special relationship due to their “common history”. Although their lengthy process of political separation began two hundred years ago, that separation is not clear in cultural terms and has frequently been called into question. By exploring the changing portrayal of Germans in Austrian cultural discourse and of Austrians in German cultural discourse over the past two hundred years, we hope to cast a critical light on particulars of the often stereotype-laden relationship between the two countries and its impact on the (continuing) development of their respective identities.
This theme lends itself to interdisciplinary approaches, including fields such as history, sociology, linguistics, political science, film studies and literary studies.
