Factual and Fictional Narrative Series of the Research Training Group 1767
Edited by Monika Fludernik The object of investigation of the DFG Research Training Group 1767 is, on the one hand, factual narrative and, on the other hand, narrative that oscillates between fictionality and factuality. Thus, the topic of the Research Training Group stands out from the mass of narratological and philological research that primarily deals with fictional texts – i.e., novels, dramas and verse narratives. The RTG is concerned with the interplay of factuality and fictionality within a wide range of texts or text types as well as (audio-)visual and material media products. The aim is, on the one hand, to integrate research fields outside the philologies into narratological analysis, and on the other hand, to learn from dealing with factual narrative beyond narrative theory and to modify common narratological models regarding factual texts. The central theme of the interference between factuality and fictionality will be explored in an interdisciplinary network involving historiography, therapeutic psychology, and law, social sciences, and economics.
Edited by Ricarda Bauschke-Hartung, Henriette Herwig and Alexander Nebrig The series Germanistische Literaturwissenschaft publishes research papers that philologically examine German-language poetry from the Middle Ages to the present, introduce it to current issues, and interpret and contextualize it by drawing on a variety of theoretical approaches. The focus is always on the text itself in its literary traditions, with its intertextual and intermedial references, and in the tension between its historical reference systems. The volumes presented offer in-depth readings of works and groups of works that are of interest to a broad readership. The series includes outstanding monographs in German studies, dissertations, and habilitation theses, as well as anthologies.

References to social, political, cultural, and intercultural dimensions are examined as well as the relationship between literature and the sciences, intermedial references to the arts (music, visual arts, theater, film, digital media), and the reflection of literature in educational contexts. The series offers a broad historical spectrum as well as comparative perspectives. It includes monographs, especially also qualification writings, as well as anthologies, documentations, and editions.
