Abstract
This article explores the representation of dirtyness and cleanliness in German, French and Swedish contemporary intercultural literature. Special attention is paid to the figure of the cleaning woman. It will be analysed how the novels’ characters assert themselves in the hybrid space between different ethnic belongings and class affiliations. The article highlights the narrative strategy of ›writing back‹ in order to impede being discriminated as a ›dirty immigrant‹ or ›white trash‹ and to promote social advancement. A comparative analysis shows similarities but also important differences in how ›dirty work‹ is negotiated in different literary and societal contexts.
