In this keynote presentation and a subsequent Q&A, we investigate how digital tools can contribute to an in-depth understanding of the short story “The Thing Around Your Neck”. This involves the aspects of interactivity, digital text production, generative AI, and instant feedback, serving as a basis for general reflections on the potential and challenges of digital tools in literature lessons.

This event is part of our event series on the new English Abitur Schwerpunkt On the Move – Migration and Cross-Cultural Encounters in which we examine the short stories of the American authors from different perspectives. Together with the University of Stuttgart, we combine diverse voices from the U.S., American literary and cultural studies and recent insights in English language education. We kicked off our series in the fall of 2023 with online talks which are still available to watch on our YouTube channel @DAZStuttgart.
