In issue #15 of Textpraxis. Digital Journal for Philology, Jana Wittenzellner analyzes the strategic use of different conceptions of authorship in (non-fictional) texts with regards to the writings of Spanish sexual reformer Hildegart Rodriguez. Basing her approach on the theoretical considerations of Felix Steiner, Wittenzellner moreover points to similarities and differences between academic and literary authorship. In his article, Julian Engelmann examines why short stories currently present the dominant literary genre in digital writing forums, and investigates which role philolgical knowledge plays in the discourse of the lay forum users. Moreover, Verena Meis traces parasitic movements in the writing style of Kathrin Röggla, and discusses the drawing and shifting of borders as tendencies in her literary and dramatic works.
