Modern Languages Open, a fully Open Access platform, is pleased to announce the launch of its newest collection, Rethinking Minor Literatures.

Guest edited by Dr Godela Weiss-Sussex (University of Cambridge) and Dr Maria Roca Lizarazu (University of Birmingham), the special collection re-reads Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s much-debated notion of “minor literature” in the context of contemporary Jewish writing by women writers situated within the German-language literary landscape, highlighting both new issues in German Jewish literature and culture and innovative approaches to the framework of “minor literature”.

The various articles in Rethinking Minor Literatures examine four important contemporary female Jewish writers (Barbara Honigmann, Eva Menasse, Katja Petrowskaja and Sasha Marianna Salzmann) who come from different cultural, generational and linguistic backgrounds, but all centre on questions of Jewish identity and writing in their respective oeuvres.
