  • Editors’ Introduction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In her 2017 book Living a Feminist Life, Sara Ahmed calls attention to the politics of citation. Arguing that citational practices often perpetuate the institutions of white heteropatriarchy, she instead cites work that is committed to naming and dismantling those institutions, especially work by feminists of color, and adopts a strict policy of citing no white men. “I think as feminists we can hope to create a crisis around citation, even just a hesitation, a wondering, that might help us not to follow the well-trodden citational paths,” Ahmed writes (148). By invoking scholarship that has contributed significantly to feminist and antiracist thought but has often been abandoned prematurely in favor of novel ... Read More

  • “Most Marriages Are Unhappy”: From Elsa Asenijeff’s Unschuld (1901)
           to Today’s Postfeminism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Elsa Asenijeff (1867–1941), a well-known and respected writer at the turn of the twentieth century in Germany, is now mostly remembered as the muse to painter and sculptor Max Klinger (1857–1920), if she is remembered at all. Her omission from literary history is by no means an exception but rather, as scholar Agatha Schwartz points out, a fate that Asenijeff shares with many women writers who published during the first half of the twentieth century. While Schwartz rightfully attributes this “unjust neglect” (4) to the fact that the literary canon was mostly shaped by the masculine bourgeoisie, Asenijeff’s case is arguably further complicated by the decline in public recognition and participation that she ...

  • Queer Moments and Cruel Optimism in Evelyn Schmidt’s Das Fahrrad
           (1981)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: About four minutes into Evelyn Schmidt’s Das Fahrrad (1981; The Bicycle, 2005), the protagonist, Susanne, shakes her daughter Jenny’s wet, yellow raincoat in the direction of a teacher who has just chided and condescended to her (see Fig. 1).1 Whereas the teacher previously towered over Susanne and Jenny (see Fig. 2), she now crouches down to greet a father and son, showing them warmth and respect and helping them with the inconveniences caused by the bad weather.2 The willful Susanne, who here resists the teacher’s implicit judgment that the father and son are more deserving, contrasts starkly with the conciliatory Susanne, who, not much later, brings a small bouquet of flowers to the same teacher.3 The first ...

  • Putting the Sovereignty of Motherhood to the Test: Late-Term Abortion in
           Anne Zohra Berrached’s 24 Wochen (2016)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The film 24 Wochen (2016; 24 Weeks, 2016) innovatively and convincingly demonstrates difficulties a couple faces in the wake of a prenatal diagnosis of chromosomal anomaly and organ defects in the fetus. The finding shatters the couple’s hope for a healthy baby. As they consider abortion, they receive conflicting advice, data, and opinions from multiple sources; they experience a wide range of emotional responses; and they wrestle with the unforeseeable outgrowths of their decision. The film avoids simplistic moralism or religious argumentation. Anne Zohra Berrached (born 1982 in Erfurt) both co-wrote and directed 24 Wochen.1 It was her second feature and her graduation film at the Film Academy Baden-Württemberg. ... Read More

      Abstract: During the 2015 New Year’s Eve celebrations in Cologne, several hundred men sexually assaulted, harassed, and robbed several hundred people—primarily women—in and around the city’s main train station (Landtag Nordrhein–Westfalen 1242). Survivors of what have come to be known as the “Cologne attacks” described the perpetrators as men “appearing like they came predominantly from North African or Arab countries” (Landtag Nordrhein–Westfalen 15).1 The events in Cologne and in other German cities that night, as well as the ensuing media uproar about what some perceived as the connection between the presence of refugees and the apparent rise in criminality in Germany, took place at the height of the so-called European ...

      Abstract: This collection of essays examines politically engaged German literature of the post-Wall period. Such an endeavor, as ambitious as it is topical, must necessarily remain limited to a few selective trends, topics, genres, authors, and approaches. Hans Adler and Sonja Klocke’s anthology offers the broad overview it promises: the volume includes many strong contributions that purposefully respond to current debates and discuss—with great sensitivity, theoretical acumen, and ethical verve—a comprehensive selection of contemporary texts and contexts and the relationship between the two.The diverse perspectives on littérature engagée range from a discussion of Mediterranean “boat refugee narratives” (a term coined by ...

  • 4 “Bauhausmädels”: Gertrud Arndt, Marianne Brandt, Margarete Heumann,

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The year 2019 marked the one hundredth anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus by architect Walter Gropius, an occasion that spurred the publication of numerous books about the famed institution, its school of thought, and its most prominent members and teachers. From 24 March until 16 June 2019, the Angermuseum in Erfurt presented 4 “Bauhausmädels,” an exhibition focused on the artistic careers of four female Bauhaus graduates. The exhibition curators explore the question: “Could the promise of the founding director Walter Gropius that this reform school would comprehensively promote and develop creative talents independent of gender be fulfilled in practice'” (8). Through the lens of gender-political issues ... Read More

      Abstract: This impressive anthology provides nuanced insights into as well as an overview of current trends in German-language travel writing. Travel narratives have always transcended genre categories, which is evident in the different textual and graphic forms represented here; they include novels, free verse, graphic novels, atlases, and films. Travel writing is, moreover, an integral part of the critical discourse on important contemporary issues, including climate change, the challenges of increasing globalization, and the preservation of endangered cultures through commodification. One of the central themes in travel writing is identity, both its construction and performance. Anke Biendarra reads both Julya ... Read More

  • Black Magic Woman: Gender and the Occult in Weimar Germany by Barbara
           Hales (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The hypnotic dance of the robot Maria in Fritz Lang’s 1927 film Metropolis manipulates men into a lustful frenzy; she triggers chaos and almost brings about the apocalypse. The female robot embodies fears of technological progress, social and political collapse, and the loss of order and wholesomeness. The robot is powerful, almost escaping male control, yet she is defeated in the end.Barbara Hales’s book Black Magic Woman: Gender and the Occult in Weimar Germany connects examples of well-known films and texts, such as Metropolis, with discussions of lesser-known films, literary texts, performances, and media reports about “women’s involvement in the occult” as a way to explore the complexities of “gender relations ...

           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This fascinating collection shifts focus away from the tendency of eighteenth-century women writers to understate their own literary contributions and toward an emphasis on direct and indirect influences on their creative processes. The editors’ succinct and informative introduction summarizes women’s literary production as shaped by education, class, familial and sociocultural ideology and norms, genres, themes, and the book trade. The challenge that male intellectuals presented in acknowledging women’s abilities highlights women’s need to consistently and creatively negotiate the literary marketplace. The volume’s three sections, “Writing a Community,” “Writing the Self,” and “Writing toward Emancipation,” reveal ... Read More

      Abstract: Judith Butler: Philosophie für Einsteiger (Judith Butler: Philosophy for beginners) is a graphic voyage through the key tenets, foundational antecedents, and contemporary debates of Judith Butler’s scholarship. Written in German by René Lépine and illustrated by Ansgar Lorenz, this work renders Butlerian philosophy—traditionally viewed as esoteric and elitist—accessible to dilettantes. Interspersed with engaging graphics and forays into principal philosophies, this captivating book prepares the reader to adequately comprehend, contextualize, and engage with Butler’s claims.Following an abbreviated version of Butler’s initial encounters with philosophy, Lépine facilitates an understanding of Butler’s complex thought ...

      Abstract: In late spring of 2019, I walked through an exhibition at the Wien Museum at the city hall titled Das Rote Wien: 1919–1934 (Red Vienna: 1919–1934). Along with this exhibition came a catalog, Das Rote Wien: 1919–1934. Ideen. Debatten. Praxis (2019; Red Vienna: 1919–1934. Ideas. Debates. Practice). Not only the title and the extensive amount of material displayed and covered but also one of the editors, Georg Spitaler, are elements that the exhibition catalog and this sourcebook have in common.The editors of Das Rote Wien offer an almost thousand-page tome of primary sources that draw a vivid picture of interwar Vienna, a period that witnessed intense political and intellectual activism. This rich sourcebook ... Read More

           Rick McCormick (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Every few years, a new anthology of films by the director Ernst Lubitsch appears on the market. These multiplying collections supply viewers with many of their favorite films, from the gender-bending Ich möchte kein Mann sein (1918; I Don’t Want to Be a Man, 2005) to the antifascist To Be or Not to Be (1942). Recently, English-language historians and academics have been doing their part to digest Lubitsch’s huge cinematic oeuvre and to draw the prolific director into the center of scholarly discourse about Weimar-era film. There have been no fewer than five books in the last three years about Lubitsch, from Joseph McBride’s 2018 How Did Lubitsch Do It' to Sabine Hake’s excellent Passions and Deceptions: The Early ...

  • Ambiguous Aggression in German Realism and Beyond: Flirtation, Passive
           Aggression, Domestic Violence by Barbara N. Nagel (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: As Barbara N. Nagel notes in Ambiguous Aggression in German Realism and Beyond, it is extreme acts of violence that tend to capture attention, but her book insightfully addresses the insidiousness of everyday violence that often remains unexamined. While her focus is on forms of social violence as depicted in German-language works by realist and modernist writers, her observations and framework are applicable today. The fact that she bridges two movements and draws on current events demonstrates that these ambiguous aggressions are perpetual. Her refreshing reading of realist texts incorporates historical and formal approaches as well as theories of affect.After delineating her project in the introductory chapter ... Read More

           Rupprecht (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In her latest foray into postwar and contemporary literary productions, comparatist Caroline Rupprecht chooses the contested culinary metaphor of fusion to characterize desirable forms of contact between Germans and racialized others, especially Asian Germans. The author takes issue in particular with representations of Asians as Semitic, orientalized Jews, a conflation she places at the root of contemporary forms of neofascist violence. Through a “call-and-response” metaphor with roots in “African-American slave songs, Indian kirtans and Jewish liturgical services” (6), which she borrows in turn from Tsitsi Jaji’s work, the author foregrounds a dialogic narrative of generations bound to one another within the ...

  • Petras Aufzeichnungen, oder Konzept einer Jugend nach dem Diktat der Zeit
           by Paula Schlier (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Several years ago, when I was researching an article on the image of the sister in Georg Trakl’s poetry, I discovered the writing of Paula Schlier. More than ten years after Trakl’s death in 1914, Schlier became a close confidant to Ludwig von Ficker, editor of the culture magazine Der Brenner, the most important venue for Trakl’s poetry during his lifetime. After World War I, Ficker promoted Paula Schlier as an emerging talent indicative of a radical postwar shift toward a Christian and socially and morally responsible writing. In my research, Schlier appeared in the letters of Ficker’s inner circle as more of an irritant than the “feminine genius” Ficker believed her to be. A whiff of scandal was apparent in ... Read More

      Abstract: This volume is an intervention in and an addendum to scholarship on the function of the female Muslim subject in German culture, a figure that represents “various homogenizing assumptions about what it means to be a ‘Muslim’” (2). Lauren Selfe’s book is organized around an engagement with three genres that are understudied in feminist scholarship on representations of Islam and Muslims in German culture—life writing, young adult literature, and film. It stands both as a thoroughly vetted archive of representations of presumed-Muslim women in post-reunification German popular culture and as a persuasive argument about how the “overburdened” category of the Muslim woman plays a central role in constituting ...

  • The Play World: Toys, Texts, and the Transatlantic German Childhood by
           Patricia Anne Simpson (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In this expansive study, Patricia Anne Simpson explores how concepts of the child and children’s play worlds were constructed and deployed over four centuries on both sides of the Atlantic. Informed by postcolonial and migration studies as well as social histories of childhood and child rearing, Simpson’s approach is as multifaceted as the texts and objects she brings to her analysis. As noted in the preface to the book, this study functions as a search for “a narrative about the purpose of play, the intersection of material culture and cultural identities, and the past of the future-oriented study of childhood and its accessories” (xi). Casting a “wide evidentiary net” (13), Simpson presents a diverse array of ... Read More

  • Precarious Intimacies: The Politics of Touch in Contemporary Western
           European Cinema by Maria Stehle and Beverly Weber (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The central task of Precarious Intimacies is, in Maria Stehle and Beverly Weber’s words, “to recognize, affirm, and value intimacies, love, touch, and care while at the same time challenging the racialized and gendered politics in which they are embedded” (5). Within the analytic frameworks of feminist and critical race studies, they propose a theoretical construct and perform readings that deploy it as a diagnostic lens. Although they use this lens to access and explore important, contradictory elements of a contemporary Western European cinematic practice that centers questions of otherness and belonging, it is a lens that, if applied to any imaginative text, will yield multidimensional understandings. Reading ... Read More

  • Antisemitism in Film Comedy in Nazi Germany by Valerie Weinstein (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Antisemitism in Film Comedy in Nazi Germany, Valerie Weinstein argues that many viewers falsely believe that Nazi comedies are absent of anti-Semitic content, simply because it is not overt. Borrowing Stuart Hall’s term “inferential racism” (15), Weinstein finds inferential anti-Semitism to be pervasive throughout these films. Despite a lack of barriers to explicit anti-Semitism during the Third Reich, inferential anti-Semitism was still an important tool because the use of innuendo, especially when it comes to comedy, helped create “cohesion and identity” in Nazi Germany’s Volksgemeinschaft (ethnic community) (37). For the purposes of her analysis, Weinstein defines anti-Semitism as a “process of defining and ... Read More
