Mon, 05/11/2020

J.J. Aupiais has received a Max Kade Research Grant from the American Friends of Marbach, available through Summer 2021, to conduct dissertation-related research at the Deutsches Literaturarchiv Marbach.  J.J.’s comparative dissertation in progress addresses the contested status of “race and nation” in colonial-era writing relevant to the German colony known as German Southwest Africa (today’s Namibia), on the one hand, and 21st-century German literature in relation to transcultural forms of globalization, on the other.
