German ‘1968’

In 2017, I contributed to Dr Emma Wagstaff’s project on Protest in Print, which explored how creative writers across Europe responded to the climate of protest ca. 1968. My contribution discussed responses from the literary journal Kursbuch, and Klau mich (nick me) made by Kommune 1. That research can be found here.

With Dr Katharina Karcher, I developed a module exploring ‘1968 in History, Word and Image’ for the University of Bristol (see teaching). We have reflected on our experiences of teaching this module together in a forthcoming chapter: ‘Germany’s ‘1968’: New Questions and Directions,’ with Katharina Karcher. In The Routledge Handbook of Teaching German: Contexts, Methods and Skills, edited by Ruth Whittle (Abingdon: Routledge, forthcoming).
