Department of Germanic Studies

At Talk by Uwe Wirth - "Scenes of Remediation in German Literature 'around 2000'"

Fri, March 28, 2014 | BUR 214

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

The talk addresses the ways in which contemporary German prose (by Thomas Meinecke, Rainald Goetz, among others) re-negotiates literature’s traditional dispositifs of print culture in light of ‘new’ digital media. The focus will be on the narratives’ inherent “scenes of writing” (Ruediger Campe), in which a “remediation” (Bolter/Grusin) of the Gutenberg Galaxy is at work, delineating literature’s place in contemporary media cultures.
 
Uwe Wirth is professor for German literature and cultural studies at the Department for Germanic Studies, JLU Giessen (Germany).
 
Pizza will be served.
