Von Schelmen und Tatorten Von Literatur und Sprache

Festschrift für Hans-Volker Gretschel

edited by Marianne Zappen-Thomson, Gertrud Tesmer

In a country like Namibia, where few academics often have to cover a subject in all its aspects, the scope of research necessarily has to be wide. In the case of the one honoured with this Festschrift, Hans-Volker Joachim Gretschel, these areas cover the German language and literature, comparative literature, translation, as well as didactics and lexicography.

In this book, with contributions in German and English, his colleagues, friends and companions address all of these issues. Nonetheless this is not a random potpourri but one united by the relevance for the development of Namibia. The reader can look forward to noteworthy articles showing the way for German and German Studies in Southern Africa.
