Arriving in the Present:
Transcultural Perspectives in Contemporary German-Speaking Contexts—A Reading Group
We are pleased to announce the continuation of our new reading group, the first phase in a three-part initiative to expand and diversify the community of the Department of German at Princeton by fostering the study of an increasingly relevant field in German Studies: “Transnational Literatures” and “Literature of (Post-) Migration.” A group organized by Professors Sara S. Poor and Barbara N. Nagel and consisting of faculty and students from Princeton, Rutgers, and U Penn will meet six times in the coming academic year to discuss new works being discussed in social media, cultural venues, and in academic circles.
Our objectives are twofold:
1) to familiarize ourselves with some recent primary materials (short story, novel, film, drama); and
2) to foster connections between Germanists both here and at our neighboring institutions.
