Abstract
This five-chapter dissertation examines how ethnic and cultural differences are negotiated in post-war Germany. It specifically focuses on the reception, including both literary criticism and translation, of cross-cultural literature. The approach of this study is a comparative one, focusing on German and American texts, the expressions those texts give to ethnic and cultural identity, and the way those texts are transmitted.
