New Special Issue Alert:


A special issue of Daphnis (50.1) has just been published, entitled:


Neighbours in the Landscape of Memory. Encounters – Juxtapositions – Mutual Influences,

edited by Lucie Doležalová and Sabine Seelbach


This is the first issue in our jubilee year –



Journal of German Literature and Culture of the Early Modern Period (1400-1750) / Zeitschrift für deutsche Literatur und Kultur der Frühen Neuzeit

Turned 50!!


In this jubilee issue:

Early-modern scholars practiced the ars memorativa, which contained a collection of techniques to improve their memory. This is because culture is stored in human memory, where memory units are connected with new experiences and older memories, producing an emergent layer of meanings.
