How European was German women's writing of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries? What opportunities did women writers have to participate in cross-cultural interchange? How did they react to developments outside their own borders in their writing? This conference aims to open up new perspectives on German women’s writing of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries by exploring how it engages with the cosmopolitanism which was so characteristic of much of this era. The speakers will shed new light on writers such as Sophie von La Roche, Charlotte von Stein, Annette von Droste-Hülshoff, Dorothea Tieck and Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach, and between them will uncover hitherto neglected aspects of European cultural mediation. Keynote speakers include Norbert Bachleitner (Vienna), Magdalene Heuser (Osnabrück/Berlin), Susanne Kord (London).
