Research at the Chair of North American Literature

As a field of American Studies, North American literature is a central place for both the study and scholarly reflection of the literary, cultural, and medial formalization of a globalized, increasingly digitized world. By questioning the distinction between approaches to literary theory and cultural studies, faculty members at the Chair of North American Literature investigate the relationship between canonical and popular text archives, the potential effects of the narrative dimensions of knowledge, and historically shaped phenomena of text-, sound-, as well as image-based manifestations of social discourses.
