Course aim

The aim of this summer school is to offer doctoral students and post-docs an opportunity to explore and discuss in detail different ways in which literary texts and other works of art use, cause or reflect transgressions or blendings of fiction and reality. University teachers both from our partner universities and from LMU Munich will provide some initial input and will guide discussions, but the collaborative work of the students will be at the heart of the summer school.
