Exile is as old as antiquity and as contemporary as this morning’s news. In Germany’s case, ‘exile literature’ has conventionally denoted the writings of refugees from Nazism; this talk, however, reaches further back, asking how German-language exile literature since the French Revolution – some of it written on our doorstep – might deepen our understanding of what it is to live in the ‘age of the migrant’ today.
