This volume contains selected papers from the first symposium titled “The Book of Dede Korkut and the Nibelungenlied - an intercultural comparison of epic poems”, which took place from 30 September to 4 October in Baku, Azerbaijan. This first symposium was organized cooperatively by its host, Baku Slavic University, together with the Institute of German Studies and the Department of Oriental Studies at the University of Mainz, and the Oswald von Wolkenstein-Gesellschaft (Frankfurt am Main). The primary aim of the symposium was to explore new directions in intercultural epic research. A further objective was to realize a plan to bridge the gap between Western and Eastern academic discourses.
Thus the volume contains publication versions of papers whose purpose was to allow the German studies participants on the one hand and on the other the Turkologists, particularly Azerbaijani linguists, to gain insight into each others’ research areas; this led for example to individual aspects such as the stanzaic structure of the Nibelungenlied being examined from the different perspectives of German studies scholars from Germany and Azerbaijan; furthermore, more general issues are addressed, for instance the relevance of the Nibelingenlied for German studies internationally, and the significance of the Book of Dede Korkut as a textualized version of an oral epic for the study of the Azerbaijani language as a branch of the Western (Oghuz) Turkic language family.
Further contributions thematize topics located mainly within the area of linguistic analysis. In order to test the capacity of this pilot project exploring intercultural comparative studies on medieval heroic epics, linguistics has been understood in its broadest sense here: syntactic structures, speech act theory and lexocographical viewpoints are just as well represented as the linguistic background of poetic structures or the onomastics of heroic names.
A contribution on the topic of orality in medieval heroic epics took the form of a concert performed on 2 October 2009 at the Kapellhaus, the German cultural centre in Baku. The well-known Nibelungenlied performer Eberhard Kummer and the Azerbaijani musical group Savalan presented their interpretations of the epic narratives in the form of an improvised musical exchange. A report on this very special intercultural event brings the symposium volume to a close.
