Contemporary Jewish Women’s Writing in Germany and Austria – A ‘Minor’ Literature? Institute of Modern Languages Research

    • Language Learning

This one-day workshop aims to probe whether the label and concept of a ‘minor literature’ (Deleuze/Guattari, 1975) can be usefully applied to contemporary writing by female Jewish authors in Germany and Austria. The workshop will explore what the term ‘minor’ could mean and contribute when discussing a broad range of contemporary authors and their aesthetics and writing practices, images of the self/the other inside and outside of their works, forms of community building, and their relationship with the broader literary field (i.e. the literary market).
