Editorial: East Asia and Europe between Innovation and Tradition, Literary and Literally

Monika Leipelt-Tsai, Eva-Maria Windberger


With the topic “East Asia and Europe between Innovation and Tradition, Literary and Literally”, this issue No. 21 of Interface continues the general theme of recent Interface issues, following the latest INTERFACEing International Conference, which took place at Trier University from 30 September to 2 October 2022. This issue highlights how the notions of innovation and tradition often seem to be intertwined in literature and in language by looking at contemporary literary texts in German that touch on essential questions of Jewish identity and migration after the Holocaust as well as texts that engage with the interconnections between rhetoric, philosophy, and language.
