Jule Nowoitnick publishes Dissertation

04. Apr. 2018

Cluster member Dr. Jule Novoitnick published her dissertation Tschingis Khaan in der deutschsprachigen Literatur with Universitätsverlag Winter. The book deals with the literary, cultural and scientific historical reception of Genghis Khan from the Middle Ages to the present as found in German literature.

The name Genghis Khan is firmly embedded in the global memory. However,  general knowledge about the Mongolian ruler usually does not exceed some basic facts. This scope between knowledge and unknowingness also shapes his literary presentation and allows for artistic license, but also demonstrates the limitations of presenting and staging a historically and culturally unknown person.

Tschingis Khaan in der deutschsprachigen Literatur. Eine Geschichte des (Nicht-)Wissens reveals — for the first time — the literary, cultural and scientific historical reception of Genghis Khan from the Middle Ages until the present. In the process, it reveals the complex interaction between literary intentions, socio-political contexts and cultural historic traditions with Asia in sight. The volume’s central question is how authors and historic literature as a genre deal with what is (un)known about Genghis Khan.

Dr. Jule Nowoitnick is the Graduate Programme Manager and Coordinator at the Cluster "Asia and Europe." She defended her PhD in 2013, after successfully participating in the Cluster’s Graduate Programme for Transcultural Studies. Furthermore, she holds a Master’s degree in Central Asian Studies and German Literature at Humboldt University and Technical University Berlin, respectively.
