Oxford German Studies is looking for contributions to a themed issue on the creative potential of end-of-life writing in German literature and culture. Articles which explore texts such as last letters, suicide notes, wills, diaries, end-of-life narratives, more general autobiographical accounts, poetry and prose with an interdisciplinary or comparative approach are particularly welcome, and the call invites contributions which focus on the influence of media and material conditions as well as the production and reception of texts.
Contributions can be in German or English, the deadline for abstracts of appr. 250 words is 31 July 2013. For further information see the full Call for Articles in German or English.
Furthermore, Oxford German Studies also invites proposals for themed issues (PDF) to run in Volumes 43 (2014) and 44 (2015).
