Textpraxis # 16
In this issue, Christina Glinik and Elmar Lenhart investigate writing scenes in Josef Winkler’s Domra. Sandra Folie discusses new world literature through the lens of intersectionality, while Stefan Tomasek discusses the museal presentation of the Song of the Nibelungs.
In issue #16 of Textpraxis. Digital Journal for Philology, Christina Glinik and Elmar Lenhart use Josef Winkler´s Domra to discusses possibilities of presenting the writing process in prose while demonstrating that the materialities in Domra enable a modeling of the literary writing process. In her article, Sandra Folie argues that neither the literary market nor literary studies are free of class, ethnic, gender, national, racial, and other prejudices. She identifies so-called »inner and outer gatekeepers« to explore to what extent Euro- and Androcentrism are still present in current world literature discourses. Moreover, Stefan Tomasek examines museal presentation and (re-)telling of the Song of the Nibelungs to investigate how the relation of the newly narrated text to the medieval textual tradition is shaped.
