Out Now: Literature and Crisis. Conceptual Explorations and Literary Negotiations
Recently Published Volume on Literature and Crises. Conceptual Explorations and Literary Negotiations, edited by Elizabeth Kovach, Ansgar Nünning and Imke Polland (2017)
Recently published in the renowned ELCH series, this conceptual volume explores how literary works articulate, negotiate, and challenge states and notions of crisis. It presents the results of the conference concluding the third cycle of the PhDnet “Literary and Cultural Studies” in diverse case studies discussing works ranging from the 17th-century history play to social-media life writing of the 21st century. These nuanced perspectives explore economic, environmental, political, social, cultural, and humanitarian crises, as well as crises of identity, norms, values, and literary expression itself.
