Invitation to Bochum
10. September 2012, Klara Gross-Elixmann | 0 Comments

Dear all participants and future participants of the WinterSchool!

In January we had lively discussions about authorship, Foucault and Barthes. Now I’m organizing a workshop in Bochum on 23.11.2012. It is about the question of a “Second Authorship” in the cases of Kafka, Panizza, Döblin, Benn, Schnitzler and Musil. It will be in German but I would be happy to welcome also English speaking guests.

You’ll find further information here: http://staff.germanistik.rub.de/neugermanistik-2/veranstaltungen/

and please do not hesitate to contact me for any questions! I hope to see you (again) soon! Klara
