While dedicated to contemporary approaches to queer German studies, the symposium additionally aims to facilitate discussion about the disciplinary history of queer German studies.

CfP: "Interface"

Interface Issue 10 - Poetry and Transculturality in Asia and Europe – Philosophical and Psychological aspects

Inter- and transcultural topics are abundant in various literatures (including but not limited to Russian, Chinese, Japanese, English and German), often developing surprisingly similar characteristics even in geographically distant locations, different genres or time periods. One particular factor fostering such developments is the transformation process of a particular literary motive from one culture to another, often by the use of translation. It becomes especially apparent when depicting borderline experience, or in a multilingual context.
