This volume of original essays celebrates Barbara Becker-Cantarino, whose prolific publications on German literary culture from 1600 to the twentieth century are major milestones in the field of German cultural studies. The range of topics in the collection reflects the breadth of Becker-Cantarino’s scholarship. Examining literature from the sixteenth to the twenty-first centuries, the contributors explore the intersections of gender, race, and genre, history and gender, and gender and violence. They provide fresh readings of the works of known and lesser-known writers, including Cyriacus Spangenberg, Maria Anna Sager, Luise Gottsched, Heinrich von Kleist, Frank Wedekind, Christa Wolf, Helga Schütz, Terézia Mora, and Martina Hefter. Their discussions explore the possibilities and limitations of theoretical discourses on travel literature, deconstruction, and gender and suggest new avenues of investigation.

“Chloe has been conceived since 1984 as a book series of the journal Daphnis for in-depth interdisciplinary research on German literature and culture of the early modern period (14th-18th centuries). The series also deals with the relations of German literature to the European cultures of this period and phenomena of cultural transfer from a comparative perspective. The volumes, edited by renowned guest editors, explore thematically focused new fields of research, bundle the latest findings on important authors of the period and preserve the cultural heritage of this time through innovative renegotiations.”
