Project description

Increased globalization has paved the way for a broader reception of migration and minorities’ literature in German literary studies. The aim of this project is to uncover the fictionalisation of shifts in identity under the influence of processes of (im)mobility in the Russian-German contemporary novel, by focusing on rhetorical and narratological strategies against the Russian-German socio-historical background.
