The purpose of this informational portal is to introduce English-speaking researchers, journalists (including incoming Feuchtwanger Fellows), students, and general readers to the work of Lion Feuchtwanger. Each entry contains information in English about a recent conference, book, article, or other item of interest, as well as links to further reading and video content. There is particular emphasis on the novels which thematize the rise of National Socialism, namely The Oppermanns and Success. The site is thus a stepping stone for further inquiry for English speakers interested in the 1918-1945 period of German literature and social history. When navigating the site, please note the following organizational principle: the posts going back to 2018 encompass the arguably most significant Lion Feuchtwanger works from that period. The earlier posts essentially cover biographical background. This site is written and operated by Dr. Adrian Feuchtwanger (certified language professional, International Feuchtwanger Society Executive Committee member, and a great-nephew of Lion Feuchtwanger; for full bio, see www.feuchtwanger.com). It is for non-profit educational purposes only.
