"Finding the Foreign" includes the proceedings of the thirteenth annual Interdisciplinary German Studies Conference at the University of California, Berkeley (2005), which explored constructions of the "foreign" in the German-speaking context in language, literature, music, and visual media. The collected articles discuss how various tropes and rhetorical techniques have historically been employed to position cultural works on a spectrum from familiar to the strange. The multi-disciplinary range of approaches contained in this volume reveals how diverse the portrayals of the foreign have been, as well as how contingent and varying the delineation between the foreign and the familiar can become.
