German-Jewish Literature and Culture and the Field of German-Jewish Studies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


I begin with a short anecdote and confession, based on my experience at the German literature archive in Marbach am Neckar, the birthplace of Friedrich Schiller. I have been utilizing the resources of this archive intermittently over the last twenty-five years, that is, since the time I was researching my doctoral dissertation on literary antisemitism in nineteenth century Germany and Britain. Scholars who visit the archives sign their names in the guest book daily upon arrival, noting also their home city or country, the date, and the specific topic of research.
