Among the Jewish academics and intellectuals expelled from Germany and Austria during the Nazi era were many specialists in German literature. Strangely, their impact on the practice of Germanistik in the United States, England, and Canada has been given little attention. Who were they? Did their vision of German literature and culture differ significantly from that of those who remained in their former homeland? What problems did they face in the American and British academic settings? Above all, how did they help shape German studies in the postwar era? This unique and important symposium, which convened at Brandeis University under the auspices of its Center for German and European Studies, addresses these and many other questions. Among its distinguished participants--who numbered over thirty in all--are Peter Demetz (Yale, emeritus), Gesa Dane (Göttingen), Amir Eshel (Stanford), Willi Goetschel (Toronto), Barbara Hahn (Princeton), Susanne Klingenstein (MIT), Christoph König (Deutsches Literaturarchiv, Marbach), Ritchie Robertson (Oxford), Egon Schwarz (Washington University St. Louis, emeritus), Hinrich Seeba (UC Berkeley), Walter Sokel (University of Virginia, emeritus), Frank Trommler (University of Pennsylvania), and many more. The volume includes not only the (revised) essays of the participants but also their prepared responses, transcripts of the panel discussion, and dialogue of the participants with members of the audience. Stephen D. Dowden is professor of German at Brandeis University; Meike G. Werner is assistant professor of German at Vanderbilt University.

Review:

The editors, Meike Werner and Steve Dowden, and their contributors, are to be commended for providing not only a retrospective assessment of the relationship of German Literature and Jewish critics, but also for asking new questions about the future development of research in this area. INTERNATIONAL ARCHIVE FOR SOCIAL HISTORY OF GERMAN LITERATURE (IASL) A crucial resource for anyone interested in German-Jewish history or culture or German Studies more generally. GERMAN QUARTERLY The volume surveys a very broad range of exile experiences and allows for a comparison of the scholarly lives that unfolded in Swiss, British, and American exile.... GERMAN STUDIES REVIEW Should be of interest to German Studies scholars worldwide. GERMANIC NOTES AND REVIEWSbr>
