Research Keywords
Comments My research focuses on German Literature, especially between 1750-1925. From the 18th century onward, literature became one major tool to redefine the value systems when as a consequence of the enlightenment movement society gradually got more pluralistic and uncertain while former authorities like religion or the state lost their influence on people's understanding of identity. I particularly look at periods of intense social change, first of all the second half of the 19th century and the novels by Theodor Fontane, the most important representative of German realism at this time.
