Contemporary Jewish Women’s Writing in Germany and Austria – A ‘Minor’ Literature?

One-Day Workshop, organised by Maria Roca Lizarazu and Godela Weiss-Sussex (Institute of Modern Languages Research, School of Advanced Strudy, University of London)

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).
