The work of DiWa is set in the intersection of epistemology and hermeneutics, of text and literary theory and last but not least in the field history.The project is concerned with the conditions for and the possibilities of how to explain understanding, especially in texts which belong to the sphere of fiction.Moreover the project tries to apply procedures of interpretation on literary texts that allow to discuss significant turning-points in the German history.DiWa is planned as a unit of work in research and teaching.Therefore the project will not only stimulate the discussion of interpretation by theoretically oriented contributions (Publ. series A); it will also result in a different number of case-studies, which are expected to offer base-materials for the teaching and learning of German languages, literature and realia (Publ.series B).The topics of these studies can be described by following keywords: The First German Reich and the Orbis Christianus/ The Reformation and the Wars of Confession/ The Absolutism and the French Revolution/ the German league and the Industrial Revolution/ the Second German Empire and the November-Revolution/ the Weimar Republic and the so-called 1000 Year Reich/ The Total Capitulation and the German Question/ the German Unification Process and the Federal Republic of Germany
