Abstract (Summary)

In literary texts, topics relevant to contemporary society manifest themselves. Their importance in intercultural German studies is therefore unbroken, and they are, as it were, the subject of mediation as well as a reason for the exchange and comparison of cultural and reading perspectives. In this work, fundamental principles of literary and literary socialization are first discussed and recourse to the theory of cognitive psychology and aesthetics of reception and aesthetics in order to describe conventions of meaning assignment in literary reading. The method of intercultural reader talk has in the practice of intercultural German studies outstanding cultural hermeneutical mediating potential. It involves different perspectives and interpretations of a literary text and brings them into a reflected and productive exchange. A thematic orientation of the text selection opens up transcultural connectivity and intercultural mediation - the German-speaking as a foreign culture and between the discourse participants. On the basis of an analysis raster, the cultural-conveying potential of selected text examples on the cultural theme 'border' is worked out and a proposal for the methodical-didactic implementation in an intercultural reader discussion is developed. It also discusses key criticisms of the concept.
