Interactions: Contemporary German Literature’s Dialogue with other Arts
organised by Dr. Ruth J. Owen and Prof. Frank Finlay
University of Leeds
5-7 May 2004

The focus of the conference was on exploring dialogues - in the sense of reciprocal influences - between contemporary literature in the German-speaking world and other art forms - music, film, pictures, architecture. We welcomed as our special guest the writer Steffen Mensching, who read from his novel Jacobs Leiter and performed his dramatic monologue Amok. The proceedings of the conference were published as a book.
