This dissertation addresses the question of how authorship is presented in the works of Uwe Timm. To explore this issue, four different “accompanying” genres have been considered: journals and newspapers, travel writings, autobiographies and poetic lectures, all of which are to be understood as “Media of Authorship” according to Urs Meyer. The discussion revolves around two aspects, the forms of media on the one hand, and the representational techniques on the other. Through Pierre Bourdieu’s concept of literary field and habitus, Uwe Timm’s multiple author images have been highlighted: the politically engaged author, the author as an ethnologist, the author as a memory worker of the collective memory and the author as a storyteller.
