Literature at the OeAD/Franz Werfel Conference 2021

Franz Werfel
“Varieties of Realism” is the main theme of this year's annual conference of Franz Werfel scholarship holders, which will take place online on 16 and 17 April.

The Franz Werfel Scholarship is aimed at young university lecturers focusing on Austrian literature. This scholarship programme has been an integral part of the OeAD’s funding landscape for almost thirty years.

A special feature of the OeAD scholarship programme is follow-up support, which includes, among other things, an annual invitation to an academic conference. As a result, the “Werfel Community” has grown together in a special way: the graduates now form an international network and meet at many joint activities. As part of the Franz Werfel Conference the twelfth Wendelin Schmidt-Dengler Reading with Olga Flor will take place on 16 April 2021. Werfel Scholarship holders will read translations from their work.
