Stefan Zweig (1881-1942) has been rediscovered in recent years. New translations of his works and numerous academic studies have contributed to a renewed interest in this Austrian-Jewish author. According to the Economist, Zweig “seems more apt than ever” today. In a recent article in the The New Yorker, George Prochnik pointed out parallels between Zweig’s depiction of Europe’s political landscape in the 1930’s and current developments in the US. This panel aims to address political aspects in Zweig’s oeuvre.
