Nationalism in Literature – Literarischer Nationalismus

Literature, Language and National Identity. Third International Scottish Studies Symposium – Proceedings


Horst W. Drescher and Hermann Völkel

Literary and social historians from Austria, Canada, England, France, Germany, Scotland, the United States, and Wales discuss nationalist tendencies and the search for cultural and/or national/ regional identity in literature. Although the main focus is on Scotland and the Scottish element in the New World, evidence from other nations/regions - Catalonia, Galicia, Ireland, Slovenia, and Wales - is included to widen the socio-cultural perspective.
Contents: Reinventing Identity: Nationalism in Modern Scottish Literature - Nationalism in Scottish Medieval and Renaissance Literature - The Irish Example - Catalonia: In Search of Autonomy - Keltentum und Nationalismus in Galizien.
