The World Within: Self-perception and images of the Other in German literatures and cultures

Edited by Andrea Bandhauer, Tristan Lay, Yixu Lü and Peter Morgan

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.
