Re-examining German writers and philosophers, 1770-1830
The EU-funded AltHistory project will investigate the construction of German literature and thought between 1770 and 1830. Specifically, it addresses the issue of how literature developed at the time and why canonisation marginalised some writers and privileged others. The social and material contexts of three literary and philosophical case studies and their impact on later canonisation will be studied. Moreover, a range of sociological and historical methodologies will be applied to determine the role played by intermediaries. The project is expected to highlight the need for a more refined view of this important period in the history of German literature and philosophy.
