Erich Auerbach: Scholarship and Cultural Identity in Times of Crisis, A Critical View
Join us to explore varying views on Erich Auerbach’s relation to German, Jewish and Christian thought. As Auerbach’s influence as a scholar of medieval and modern literature has spread, his reputation has grown as a cultural-historical figure known for writing his most important literary and cultural history in exile during the National Socialist era. He now shares this focus of attention with Walter Benjamin, Theodor Adorno, and Hannah Arendt. This webinar will feature new research by German and American scholars who will discuss Auerbach’s debt to secular, Christian and Jewish intellectual traditions in Germany.
