May, 23-25, 2013 "Censorship and Exile"

The joint conference of the University of Augsburg and the University of Austin, Texas focuses from an interdisciplinary and transcultural perspective on the continuities, discontinuities, and the heterogeneity of exile literature(s) as a result of censorship and repression of free speech and artistic freedom. With the ‘Salzmann Library of Burned Books’ in Augsburg and the ‘Harry Ransom Center’ in Austin, both universities have important collections and institutions that facilitate research concerning the interdisciplinary and academic analysis of mechanics of censorship in relation to the experiences of exile and the reflection within the medium of literature. The scope of the conference is not limited to the first half of the twentieth century but includes synchronic as well as diachronic perspectives on the topic and also explores the transnational interrelationships and complex interactions of questions of censorship and exile.

The three-day conference will take place at the University of Augsburg as a joint conference between the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Augsburg and constitutes the first joint project within the partnership of both universities.
