HHU, room 23.21.02.27
Since receiving the Chamisso Prize in 2008 Saša Stanišić has been firmly established within the canon of German writers who grapple with tropes of a ‘literature of migration’ and represent the transcultural consciousness inherent in contemporary language use. Drawing on a case study co-authored with A. Ščukanec, G. Rocco presents an exploration of Stanišić’s novel Herkunft which pays special attention to traces of discursive views of the world (Czachur 2013) as well as reflecting interlingual discursive transfer (Rocco 2017) and the treatment of discursive, culture-bound elements (Bilan 2017) – both in the German source text and the Croatian translation Porijeklo.
