Presiding: Janine Ludwig, Dickinson Coll.

Speakers: Helen Fehervary, Ohio State Univ., Columbus; Robert George Kaufman, Univ. of California, Berkeley; Kenneth Marcus, Univ. of LaVerne; Theodore Franks Rippey, Bowling Green State Univ.; Helga Schreckenberger, Univ. of Vermont

Inspired by the conference site of Los Angeles, the session focuses attention on the German emigré Bertolt Brecht in exile. It aims to explore how the frustrating, tense experience of prolonged exile not only shaped Brecht’s thinking about the connections between art and politics but also had a lasting impact on his American hosts and cultural environment.
