Courses: Contemporary German Fiction (GERMH320A01)

Fall 2008

One of the most interesting and exciting aspects of contemporary German literature is its aesthetic diversity that eludes any clear-cut literary-historical definition. Instead, we are confronted with the co-existence of multiple literary models, including documentary, feminist, meta-fictional, autobiographical, and immigrant literatures - compelling evidence that the notion of a single German literature has become totally obsolete. Focusing on exemplary texts, the seminar will closely analyze the diverging literary concepts and writing practices, characteristic of the literary scene today.
