German economic crises from the past two hundred years have provoked diverse responses from journalists, politicians, scholars, and fiction writers. Among their responses, storylines have developed as proposals for reducing unemployment, improving workplace conditions, and increasing profitability when stock markets tumble, accompanied by inflation, deflation, and overwhelming debt. The contributors to Invested Narratives assess German-language economic crisis narratives from the interdisciplinary perspectives of finance, economics, political science, sociology, history, literature, and cultural studies. They interpret the ways German society has tried to comprehend, recover from, and avoid economic crises and in doing so widen our understanding of German economic debates and their influence on German society and the European Union.

Jill E. Twark is Associate Professor of German at East Carolina University. Her research focuses on contemporary German literature and culture. Along with her monograph, Humor, Satire, and Identity: Eastern German Literature in the 1990s (De Gruyter 2007), she has edited books on post-unification German humor and social-justice dilemmas.
