>Editors: Eleoma Joshua and Robert Vilain
>CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
>The conviction that German culture and the German spirit are triumphantly
>unique has played a notorious and dangerous role in that country's
>history. It is nonetheless widely acknowledged that German cultural
>production 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 incorporate the non-German influence.
>This volume will provide a forum for a wide-ranging investigation into how
>German literature from the middle ages to the present day reflects and
>articulates interactions between German and non-German cultures.
>Contributors are encouraged to identify and trace patterns or
>idiosyncrasies, within and across periods, from the perspective of
>cultural exchange. Possible topics include:
>• German medieval literature and its European inspiration
>• German literature and the Thirty Years War
>• Germany and the classical cultures of Greece and Rome -
>inspiration or tyranny?
>• German literature and the literature, music and art of England,
>France, Ireland, Italy, Russia, Scandinavia, Scotland and Spain
>• Germany, Switzerland and Austria – distinct cultural identities?
>• Germany and Shakespeare
>• Germany and the Ostjuden
>• Germany and the Americanisation of Europe
>• Orientalism in German literature; the reception of Chinese and
>Japanese literature and culture
>• Germany and Turkey - the impact of the economic migrant
>• Germany's colonial legacy; postcolonialism in German literature
>• Post-war German-Jewish literature and its non-German influences
>• The impact of the translation of German literature in Germany
>The journal will follow the Camden House style sheet.

>[log in to unmask] by 30 April 2006.
