Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The literature of minorities is a central topic in comparative literary studies. Various facets of minority literatures can be analysed, including processes of literary assimilation and identity construction, cultural transfer phenomena, and different types of multilingualism, such as how dominant and minority languages are programmatically juxtaposed, or how “self-denial” is expressed in the form of code switching. The course “Minority Literatures” will focus on three Central European literatures: the literature of the Roma people, Jewish literature and German minority literature. For generations, fables and folk songs have formed the literature of the Roma. Novels are a rather new phenomenon, to some extent having been written to satisfy expectations from outside Roma communities, not least by literary scholars. In neither Hungary nor Austria is the Jewish population officially recognized as a minority, which leads to the question of the extent one can refer to Jewish minority literature in these two countries. German minority literature in Hungary must be viewed as a marginal phenomenon, since its best-known representatives do not consider themselves part of a minority. Thus we will examine authors such as Terézia Mora to see the effect of this on their work. The aim of the course is to introduce a comparative approach to the literatures of Central Europe.
