Dieter Forte (1935-2019), ein Autor des Erinnerns - "Denn in der Zeit lebt immer auch eine andere Zeit"

In the organizer's words:

The academic study of Dieter Forte's complex oeuvre is still in its infancy. With an international conference, the Heinrich Heine Institute would like to encourage more researchers to study the work of the great Düsseldorf author. Speakers will include literary scholars from all over Europe, including Prof. Klaus-Michael Bogdal (Bielefeld), who will give the opening lecture, Prof. Leopoldo Dominguez (Seville), Prof. Birthe Hoffmann (Copenhagen) and Prof. Jürgen Ritte (Paris).

An important topic is the bombing war, which Forte was one of the first German-language authors to describe in his novel "Tagundnachtgleiche". Other subjects include Forte's concept of time and the author as a flâneur. Staff from the Heine Institute will also provide insights into Dieter Forte's estate, particularly with regard to the research and knowledge opportunities it offers.
