Representations of the other in German-language cultural criticism around 1900

Postdoc project

Project leader: Eva Wiegmann
Duration: 1 February 2012-31 January 2014

This research project analyzed ideas of culture, otherness, and the interculturality of conservative cultural criticism to show in critical reference to the present parallels and differences in patterns of reaction to comprehensive processes of dissolution of boundaries and modernization. By historicizing and innovatively linking interculturality and cultural criticism, the project also managed to expand the complexity of research on interculturality.
