BeschreibungKennst du das Land? Cultural Exchange in German Literature/ Kulturaustausch in der deutschen Literature, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK ( 14.12.2006 – 15.12.2006)

A conference organised by the German Section, the University of Edinburgh and the Department of German, Royal Holloway, University of London.
14th-15th December 2006

The conviction that German culture and the German spirit is essentially and triumphantly unique has played a notorious and dangerous role in that country’s history for well over a century. It is nonetheless widely acknowledged how German cultural production – in both process and outcome – has been significantly shaped by its interaction with non-German sources, and that the search for what is unique about Germany and German literature must to a large extent incorporate its non-German influence.
This conference aims to offer the forum for a wide-ranging, pluralist investigation into how German literature from the middle ages to the present day reflects and articulates some of these interactions. Its will encourage the identification and tracing of patterns in this area, within and across periods, as well as the more detailed analysis of individual high-points or local clusters of significance from the perspective of the topic of ‘cultural exchange’.
