This seminar proposes a decolonizing perspective to the traditional view of German literary history from the late 12th to the mid-20th century, putting emphasis on women and other (racialized) "others." Students will explore examples of poetical writing in German (Medieval "Minnesong" to Bertolt Brecht), compare three samples of literary histories in German and English (ed. by Beutin, Wellbery, Brinker-Gabler), and along with this, study critical literature on German literary history (Fohrmann), aesthetic judgement (Heydebrand/Winko), canon-building and decanonisation (A. Assmann); feminist and queer studies approaches (Miller; Butler).
