For all our followers who read German – have a look at this enlightening article by Thomas Anz , Professor of German at Marburg University and General Editor of literaturkritik.de on the problems and chances of literary criticism on the internet:
Although this post doesn’t touch on Austrian Studies topics directly, it is still concerned with the media we use to disseminate information and to communicate our research here at austrianresearchuk.
