Terror: The power of narration

(University of Bonn) Literary texts have the potential to penetrate war and terror by overcoming divisive narratives. Dr. Dana Bönisch is convinced of this. In her thesis at the University of Bonn, she examined newer, largely unknown novels on 9/11 and the so-called 'War on Terror'. She worked on literary examples that counteract a simplistic narrative of "Good versus Evil". She also made extensive use of methods from visual and spatial theory and in particular from topology.
