Xenophobia in South Africa was brought into the limelight nationally and internationally during the aftermath of the violent attacks on residents from remote areas and from other African countries in May / June 2008. In response to these events, the topic chosen for the 24th conference of the Association for German Studies in Southern Africa in April 2009 was Notions of the Other in Language and Literature. This theme, while not new, calls us to critically situate scholarly endeavours in German Studies in an African context, within a dialogic exchange between African locations and along a South-North axis. Many of the contributions to this volume emanate from papers presented at that conference.
