Senior Fellow (10/2023 – 04/2024)


Literature in the Face of Nazism. The Murderous Spaces of Anti-semitic Politics in the 1930’s and 1940’s


Atinati Mamatsashvili The project examines literary works by French-speaking authors in Europe in the 1930s and 1940s. It explores how the Nazi policy of exclusion towards Jews manifested itself in the writings of authors who, from the 1930s onwards, alerted of the dangers of Nazi ideology and denounced "between the lines", directly or through clandestine publications, the conditions to which Jews were subjected. The study of the practice of persecution on the basis of literary works draws on questions of spatiality that the concepts of "exclusion" and "persecution" raise from the outset.
