Chair for German literature

Welcome to the homepage of the Tübingen Chair of Modern German Literature (NDL) with a focus on the 18th and 19th centuries.

Four of us research and teach German literature of the 18th and 19th centuries, with some excursions into the 20th century and contemporary literature. Our systematic work and research focuse on knowledge and literature, post/colonial and gender studies, mediality and aesthetics, and memory and remembrance culture.
