Summary

  • "This book provides in-depth analysis of literary and biographical texts, film and performance practices in the German-speaking countries from the 17th century to the present."--Publisher's website.
  • "What is the "self" and the "foreign" in the age of globalisation? How should a culture or a nation define itself and how would individuals deal with questions of identity in a world in which the belonging to a culture or to a nation no longer provides relatively stable categories for the formation and articulation of identity? This book provides in-depth analysis of literary and biographical texts, film and performance practices in the German-speaking countries from the 17th century to the present and offers a study of the links and demarcations between language, culture and identity."--Back cover.
