The series of publications of Friedrich Schlegel Graduate School of Literary Studies at Freie Universität Berlin stand for internationally oriented literary studies that go beyond the exclusive focus on Western tradition and that turn toward the European, American, Arabic, and Asian literatures of the modern age, medieval times, and ancient times. The publication forum offers monographs and anthologies that present an exemplary achievement within their subject and, at the same time, venture beyond its boundaries into the philologies and literatures of the world. The goal is the integration of single disciplinary and comparative research involving adjacent discursive practices. Following Friedrich Schlegel’s example, the Graduate School is commited to do research of literary cultures from a universal-poetic perspective.
