Book Club

Fully Booked - American Literature at Goethe University

It's not a seminar. It's not a lecture, either. Fully Booked gives you the chance to get to know important works of American literature and discuss them with your peers. Finally a reason to read those books you've always meant to read - but didn't want to read only by yourself!

Each book will be introduced by a member of the American Studies department. Then the floor is open.

Memory Studies

Memory Studies is an international and interdisciplinary convergence field. It addresses – broadly speaking – the interplay of past and present in sociocultural contexts. Memory Studies is interested in the social shape of individual memory as well as in the collective generation of past, present, and future.
The Frankfurt Memory Studies Platform (FMSP) is an initiative of the Forschungszentrum für Historische Geisteswissenschaften (FzHG). It brings together people and projects from history, sociology, literature, arts, media studies, psychology, and other relevant disciplines in a dialogue about memory. It wants to shape the future of memory studies by developing and discussing new research questions and new methodologies.
The activities of the FMSP revolve around three main Research LinesTranscultural Memory, the Mediality of Memory, and Memory and Narrative.
