WOMEN IN GERMAN

Number 37
August 1985

EDITORIAL

Since this is the conference issue, we propose the following suggestions, based on discussion of our regional meeting in June (report to follow). The focus of these proposals is to address graduate-student needs and concerns, and how these affect WIG as a whole:

---- Providing official time at future WIG conferences for graduate students (a.k.a. Wiglets) only, to discuss issues which affect us. We need this time to organize and become a more cohesive group.

---- In keeping with our intention to be a group within a group, we would then bring these concerns/issues to the larger group for discussion.

---- Practical workshops on activities of the "profession", i.e. writing CVs, book reviews, job hunting... we want your help and experience!

We see these proposals as a way of recognizing and addressing the diversity within WIG. If you have any suggestions, please write us or bring them up in October.

Wiglets unite!

THIS AND THAT

WIG-AMHERST REGIONAL CONFERENCE

WIG-Amherst held its first regional get-together June 7-8, at the home of Sara Lennox in Northampton. Twelve members participated, as well as several prospective members. Discussion the first evening centered around the need for smaller, regional get- togethers. Several women mentioned feeling isolated/"out of it" both in Germanistik and even in WIG. Each of the five graduate students present brought up the need for a more organized graduate student group within WIG. Although some members perceived this as promoting an un-wiggian sense of hierarchy, the future Wiglets believe that we have an (obviously) different relationship to WIG and to Germanistics than our more "advanced" colleagues. The evening “ ended with a presentation by Lola Gruenthal and Dagmar Stern about the current activities and planned projects of the NY WIG-chapter. Lola and Dagmar encourage all Wiggies to submit creative writing pieces for Frauenfahrplan II.

The second day of the weekend started out with presentations of Works-in-progress. Jutta Bernstein briefly discussed her work on Ingeborg Drewitz that she has done in preparation for an interview this summer. Karin Obermeier spoke about her recent work on Karoline von Günderrode. Melissa Vogelsang talked about her concept of the Briefroman as a way that women have dealt with and transcribed a friend's death. Later in the day, discussion returned to previously raised issues. Some new topics brought up in the afternoon were: various "splits" experienced by women in the profession, i. e. German-Jewish tensions; being a feminist/progressive in a traditional, male-identified discipline. The small size of the group provided a safe and open atmosphere for sharing some of the more personal ways that being in Germanistics and in WIG affect us.

AUS UNSEREM BRIEFKASTEN

Dear friends in WIG,  

I do enjoy receiving the Newsletter and reading about the ’progressive' things that are going on. German departments here are still in the Dark Ages as far as women writers are concerned! The examination syllabuses in secondary schools exclude women almost entirely and the pattern is largely repeated in the universities. It is therefore encouraging to hear about developments taking place elsewhere and particularly about ways of attempting to integrate women writers into existing courses. With best wishes for the continuation of the good work, yours sincerely,

Juliet Wigmore
University of Salford, England

To: Women in German 

Together with a team of translators, including Ilse Andrews, Judy Greene, Gabriele Koch, Annemarie Kuhn, and Victoria Joan Moessner, I am currently editing an anthology of autobiographical texts of German-Jewish women who emigrated after Hitler’s rise to power.
The tentative title for the anthology is DREAMS OP A BETTER LIFE: WOKEN IN EXILE. Most of the memoirs were collected at the Leo Baeck Institute (NYC), the Houghton Library (Cambridge), the Germania Judalca (Köln), and the Yad Vashem Holocaust Library (Jerusalem).
In order to situate the texts and to build on the bibliography of women artists in exile, I am looking for slides (reproductions) representing the art by/about women in exile. My questions focus on this subject: 1) Do you know of women artists who currently are Involved with the topic matter of ”exile"? 2) Do you know of any past, present, or future exhibitions of women in exile art?
Your help will be very much appreciated.

Dear WIG:

I have an IREX Grant for September-December 1985 to study the work of GRETE MEISEL-HESS in Leipzig and East Berlin. Melsel-Hess (1879-1922), who was born in Prague, spent her childhood in Vienna and lived in Berlin, wrote theoretical works on women, sexuality, and marriage, novels, and essays in the first two decades of this century. I would very much appreciate hearing from anybody who could suggest people in the GDR or the FRG whom I might contact about this project. Sincerely yours,

Wilma A. Iggers

edited by Marianne Burkhard and Edith Waldstein

Focusing on the quality and functions of women's roles in German culture, this collection addresses a broad spectrum of issues relevant to a better understan­ding of German life and letters. The juxtaposition of analyses of literature, film, pedogogical, and socio­political text provides valuable insights into the forma­tion, conservation, and transmission of cultural values.
Exhibiting the work of Germanists who synthesize Women's Studies and German Studies, the volume demonstrates the ways in which feminist approaches can enrich the understanding of German culture. The broad range of topics addressed makes this book appealing not only to literature scholars, but to anyone with a keen interest in things German.
