Back cover copy

This interdisciplinary study of history, race, gender, and nationality offers rich readings of three contemporary prose texts that challenge the suppositions of prevalent literary theory-Anne Duden's Ubergang, Torkan's Tufan: Brief an einen islamischen Bruder, and Jeannette Lander's Ein Sommer in der Woche der Itke K. Adelson's discussion of heterogeneous identities in contemporary German culture boldly explores accountability and innovation in historical process.
