      Abstract: This issue is dedicated to the students and colleagues on both sides of the Atlantic who have made the Bowling Green State University–Paris Lodron University of Salzburg academic exchange program over the past fifty years so transformative and enriching.Shortly after the World Health Organization declared that COVID-19 was to be considered a pandemic on March 11, 2020, strict rules were placed on personal movement all around the world. More than 130 nation-states closed their borders and placed heavy restrictions on domestic and international travel, prohibiting entry for almost all noncitizens (Banulescu-Bogdan, Benton, and Fratzke). Even within the Schengen Area of the European Union, which since 1993 has ... Read More

  • Migration, Integration, and Assimilation: Reassessing Key Concepts in
           (Jewish) Austrian History

      Abstract: The following article presents a collection of synopses of recent research trends and innovative concepts from the fields of Jewish, cultural, and migration studies that help to broaden our understanding not only of Jewish history but also of contemporary debates on migration in Austria and beyond. Tim Corbett opens with a brief critique of the assimilation paradigm in Jewish historiography and a survey of the current state of the field. Caroline Kita continues with a discussion of the concept of Jewish difference and how constructed cultural differences are instrumentalized in the field of art and literature. Following this, Susanne Korbel discusses the concepts of indifference and similarity to show how ... Read More

  • Writing against Suffocation: Migrant Letters as Documents and Strategies
           of Survival in the Hereditary Lands of the Eighteenth Century

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the Austrian Hereditary Lands (Österreichische Erblande), the Reformation was a resounding success during the sixteenth century.1 By attracting noblemen and farmers alike, reformers turned this historic centrepiece of the Habsburg Empire into a Protestant stronghold. Estimates suggest that Protestants constituted 75 to 90 percent of the total Habsburg population in 1600 (Vocelka 43).Only three decades and countless repressive state and church interventions later, the situation had changed dramatically: Catholicism again claimed the status of sole religious representation, and Protestantism was doomed to illegality until the Patent of Tolerance in 1781. Already during the first half of the seventeenth century a ... Read More

           Alya Rakhmanova's Milchfrau in Ottakring

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Milchfrau in Ottakring: Tagebuch aus den dreiβiger Jahren relates the experiences of a Russian refugee in Vienna during the late 1920s, paralleling the life of its author, Alya Rakhmanova. Born Galina Alexandra Dyuragina in the Ural region of Russia in 1898, the author met and married the Austrian Arnulf von Hoyer in Siberia in 1921. Hoyer, a former prisoner of war, elected to remain in the Soviet Union, where he completed his studies in linguistics. In 1925, the couple and their four-year-old son were expelled from the Soviet Union without the authorities providing any reasons. With little money and academic degrees that held no validity in their new context, the family arrived in the fledgling Republic of Austria ... Read More

  • The European Union and Other Crazy Utopias: Robert Menasse's
           Postnationalist Vision in Die Hauptstadt

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: On the sixtieth anniversary of the Treaty of Rome in March 2017, Robert Menasse delivered a scathing speech to the EU Parliament criticizing current leaders for neglecting the body's original goals. This generation of politicians, he claimed, has dismissed the European project as a crazy utopia because they are ignorant of the past and blind to the future. Entitled "Kritik der Europäischen Vernunft," Menasse's speech evokes Kant's Enlightenment philosophy in its call to return to human reason and the original EU ideal to overcome the nation-states and nationalisms at the root of so much destruction.Menasse's appeal to reclaim the postnational European ideal reappears in fictional form in Die Hauptstadt. The 2017 ... Read More

  • Antoine Doinel in Simmering: Appropriating François Truffaut's The 400
           Blows in Sudabeh Mortezai's Macondo

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Austrian director Sudabeh Mortezai's first feature film, Macondo, opens with a static fade-in on a building in the eponymous refugee housing facility outside Vienna. In the first scene, eleven-year-old protagonist Ramasan, a resident of Macondo, enters his family's apartment to discover an unattended stove. After removing a smoking pot, Ramasan, followed by his two younger sisters, finds their mother in the bedroom, sunken in thought. This scene introduces both Ramasan and his family, all of them refugees from Chechnya, and also the film's key thematic focus on the transition from childhood to maturity and responsibility. For the attuned viewer, the scene also offers an allusion to François Truffaut's 1959 film The ... Read More

      Abstract: Ich bin krank. Stela … setzt die Worte in den Raum, als wären sie schwere Steine. Dann lenkt sie unsere Blicke dorthin, wo auch sie ihren Fokus hat—nach vorne. Stela gibt nicht auf. Auch wenn das heißt, dass sie als 65-jährige Rumänien verlassen und in ein fremdes Land gehen musste. "Ich hatte gehört, in Österreich kann ich eine Beschäftigung finden…. Ich bin sehr froh, dass ich Megaphon verkaufen kann." … Stela hat Freunde und Freundinnen gefunden, Menschen, die ihr helfen. Ohne Versicherung, ohne Erspartes tat sich ein Abgrund vor ihr auf. "Aber die Menschen haben mir geholfen. Ich konnte in Rumänien operiert werden," erzählt sie.The last two decades have seen the rise of a newly dominant paradigm pertaining to ... Read More

      Abstract: The Thirty Years' War (1618–1648) was one of the most destructive conflicts in European history. Whole swaths of Central Europe were left desolate, in a demographic catastrophe that had previously been known only through plague and that wouldn't be repeated until the twentieth century. What began as a Protestant-Catholic dispute became in the subsequent decades a war involving nearly every state in Europe. Yet the lands that bore the brunt of the fighting and wanton destruction—even after the war had developed into a more general conflagration—remained Central Europe, and specifically the lands under Habsburg dominion, where the original quarrel had developed and where religious and ethnic fault lines were as ...

           the Vormärz to the Inter-War Years ed. by Franz Adlgasser and Fredrik
           Lindström (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The edited volume The Habsburg Civil Service and Beyond: Bureaucracy and Civil Servants fr om the Vormärz to the Inter-War Years offers a provocative contribution to historical scholarship's understanding of Austrian culture as a whole through its analyses of Habsburg governmental structures from 1848 to the 1920s. To articulate this point, editors Franz Adlgasser and Fredrik Lindström begin their volume with three introductory chapters. The first serves as a general overview of the volume as a whole authored by both editors. The second, by Lindström alone, explains the volume's objectives and the stakes with respect to how it departs from previous scholarship, namely to illustrate the Habsburg Empire as a ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Salzburg 1918–1919 is one of those rare volumes that shows the power and scope of history in cultural studies when the strengths of archives and libraries are mobilized rather than university scholarship alone. Edited by Oskar Dohle, director of the Salzburger Landesarchiv and professor at the University of Salzburg, and Thomas Mitterecker, head of the Archiv der Erzdiözese Salzburg and president of the Gesellschaft für Salzburger Landeskunde, have assembled a Who's Who of scholars specializing in the region, some academics and/or archivists, others, like Mag. Stefanie Habsburg-Halbgebauer, professionally engaged with Salzburg history and culture.A brief review cannot do justice to this beautifully produced and ... Read More

  • Kafka After Kafka: Dialogical Engagement with His Works from the Holocaust
           to Postmodernism ed. by Iris Bruce and Mark H. Gelber (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Kafka After Kafka contains eleven remarkably productive and thoughtful essays by a mix of well-known and younger Kafka scholars. The introduction opens by cataloguing the global artistic reception of Kafka, from the Japanese Kōbō Abe, to South Africa's Achmat Dangor, to dramatic works by Alan Bennett (Kafka's Dick) and Sally Clark (The Trial of Judith K.). The editors claim that much recent art inspired by Kafka is about "violence and humiliation" at the expense of the "modest, elegant, playful, ironic Kafka of real life" (3). Not so in these pages, where the "dialogical engagement" promised in the title prevails. The chapters open up fruitful new connections and perspectives, which yield original interpretations ...

           Doreen Densky (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Doreen Densky's book Literarische Fürsprache bei Franz Kafka: Rhetorik und Poetik is an excellent analysis of Franz Kafka's use of the advocate and advocacy (Fürsprache) to speak for and to various groups in his literary works, to his legal professor, and in everyday life. Kafka's life as an advocate started with his work as a trained lawyer working at an insurance firm, progressed through his speaking for Yiddish theater, and ended with his speaking for animals near the end of his life. Denksy offers a detailed analysis of how Kafka diminished the role of the advocate over the course of his three novels, while leaving open the possibility of advocating for others through his own writing.Densky begins by examining ...

  • Der Februaraufstand 1934. Fakten und Mythen by Kurt Bauer (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In den Gedenkjahren zu historischen Schlüsselmomenten der österreichischen Geschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts hat sich bei der Frage um Kontinuität oder Zäsur der Fokus vom Anschluss 1938 zum Jahr 1934 mit der Ausrufung des Ständestaates verlagert. Im selben Jahr kam es am 12. Februar zum bewaffneten Aufstand der Sozialdemokratischen Arbeiterpartei gegen die Regierung Dollfuß. Die Fakten und Mythen der Februarkämpfe präsentiert der Historiker Kurt Bauer in einer Studie, deren Schwerpunkt eine detaillierte Erfassung der Todesopfer bildet, die jahrzehntelang von einigen Hundert bis zu einigen Tausend schwankte. Diese Diskrepanz hielt den Mythos vom Opfermut der Februarkämpfer gegen die Dollfuß-Regierung aufrecht, der ... Read More

      Abstract: Immanuel Weißglas ist innerhalb der Literatur der Bukowina, jener Literaturlandschaft, deren Reichtum heute wie ein Rätsel erscheint, zu dem der Schlüssel aber vielleicht die Mehrsprachigkeit und die liberale Politik Kakaniens ist, zu den bekanntesten Stimmen zu zählen; bekannt ist genauer jenes Gedicht mit dem Titel ER, dessen Beziehung zur freilich noch berühmteren Todesfuge Celans eng ist.Viel ist aber auch unbekannt von Weißglas, so die Geschichte des Bandes Gottes Mühlen in Berlin, namentlich der Grund, wieso dessen Publikation in Bukarest 1947 nicht zustande kam: vielleicht eine politische Entscheidung, vielleicht ökonomische Umstände. Erhalten sind hiervon jedenfalls zwei Textkonvolute, die in Bezug zum ... Read More

  • Der dritte Mann: Die Neuentdeckung eines Filmklassikers by Bert Rebhandl
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The film The Third Man attained worldwide popularity when it was released in 1949. The film, ommitted by Graham Greene, takes place in postwar Vienna. Due to the setting and the haunting zither music, the film has won such a sizable following that it has a museum dedicated to it in Vienna. Bert Rebhandl's work Der dritte Mann offers the film fanatic and uninitiated viewer interesting perspectives on the film itself, including previously unknown tidbits of knowledge and trivia concerning the film.On the seventieth anniversary of the film's introduction, Bert Rebhandl decided to write a historical account and new perspective of the film. His work is divided into three parts: 1949 (the year of the film's release) ... Read More

      Abstract: In the times of COVID-19, when women disproportionally affected by the economic fallout of the pandemic endure a "she-cession" as they are refunctionalized as primary familial caregivers (unpaid, of course) and when an ensuing de-globalization of economies is employed to shore up nationalist and identitary perspectives, the reissue of Erika Thurner's Nationale Identität und Geschlecht in Österreich nach 1945 furnishes a welcome gender-critical perspective on the process of nation-building since the end of World War II. Thurner's study, first published in 2000, examines the political process of developing (and maintaining) a stable national Austrian identity following the loss of the Austrian population's "emotional ...

  • Revisiting Austria: Tourism, Space, and National Identity, 1945 to the
           Present by Gundolf Graml (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Gundolf Graml's book Revisiting Austria presents a fresh, enterprising assessment of the role played by tourism in the construction of "Austrianness" under the Second Republic. Not content with the stodgy dismissiveness shown to the topic by earlier studies, Graml stakes out tourism as a "central discursive terrain for the negotiation of core issues of Austrian identity" (2). Indeed, it is the discourses of tourism, space, and landscape, more than their material conditions, that interest Graml, as borne out by the theoretical apparatus he employs: Butler, Bhabha, and Baudrillard, for instance, feature prominently. His chief scholarly intervention is in naming performativity as both link and catalyst between the ... Read More

      Abstract: Thomas Bernhard and Elfriede Jelinek, two controversial and highly acclaimed writers in the German-speaking world, have much in common. Both have a love-hate relationship with their home country, both offer poeticized provocations of the media and postwar political discussions, both put forward a critique of Austria's active involvement with National Socialism that positions their (respective) literary output as the definitive anti-Heimat literature and strengthens their (respective) reputation as "Nestbeschmutzer/in" as well as enfant terrible.Comparative studies on the writings of Jelinek and Bernhard have increased over the last two decades. This collection, published on the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary ... Read More

      Abstract: Perhaps no other German-language author has received as much public attention over the past year as Peter Handke. The bestowal of the 2019 Nobel Prize in Literature upon Handke unleashed a storm of controversy related to his writings and comments on the Yugoslavian Wars of the 1990s, making Handke—who in the meantime continues to write at his usual frenetic pace, producing a short novel (Das zweite Schwert) and a play (Zdeněk Adamec) in the brief time since the award—a living symbol of the still-simmering tensions in the Balkans and an object lesson in the debates over the relationship between literary or aesthetic value and political judgment. While these debates are essential to any overall assessment of Handke's ... Read More

  • Leben verboten! by Maria Lazar (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Maria Lazar (1895–1948) was an Austrian-Jewish writer, whose works had mostly fallen into oblivion until the aptly named publisher Das vergessene Buch Verlag started republishing her books: Die Vergiftung (1920, republished in 2014) and Die Eingeborenen von Maria Blut (1937, republished in 2015). Leben verboten! was only ever published in English by Wishart & Co in London in 1934, so the 2020 publication of the book by Das vergessene Buch Verlag is the first German edition of the book based on the 1932 original manuscript. The novel is followed by a fift y- eight- page afterword entitled "Kolportage und Wirklichkeit: Zu Maria Lazars Roman Leben verboten!" by Johann Sonnleitner, who has been instrumental in ...

  • Shatter the Bell in My Ear: Selected Poems by Christine Lavant (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Clichés grow entrenched when they capture some truth; accordingly, the perennial indictment of translators as traitors rightly acknowledges that no translation, however skilled, can replicate all the qualities of the original.Failure or at best shortfall is inherent, a foregone conclusion, so bilingual editions of poems, like this selection from each of Lavant's volumes, are thus "no more than an honest admission of defeat from the outset," to quote Tim Parks. Lavant and Chorlton side by side provide readers with many moments of gratitude and admiration for apt renderings, but that juxtaposition raises demurrers as well.More than in most other pursuits, no assessment of any translation can be free of confirmation ...
