Module content and teaching

Principal aims

Hardly a day passes without news items about Germany’s migrant communities. But how do migrant and postmigrant writers themselves represent the experience of diaspora, of traumatic dislocation from a ‘homeland’ and of settlement? In this module we will read a range of important and fascinating texts (novels, short stories, poems, essays, articles) which examine this process from migration to some form of integration (or, indeed, non-integration!).
