  • "Wie es damals Mode war": Inscribing History and Cultural Identity into
           the Oderbruch in Theodor Fontane's Vor dem Sturm

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: On December 27, 1878, a rather frustrated Julius Rodenberg, editor of the influential literary journal Deutsche Rundschau (German review), complained in his diary about a particular item on his to-do list, writing, "I have been choking down Fontane's 'Before the Storm' for almost eight weeks now…. I keep asking myself: what will happen now' Will they drive through the countryside again (with the ponies)' Will they sit down at the table again'"1 Rodenberg did eventually finish and even penned a rather diplomatic review of Theodor Fontane's first novel. Rodenberg was not alone in criticizing the relative lack of excitement in the plot of Fontane's literary debut, and Fontane himself accepted this assessment with ... Read More

  • Visual Alterity: Seeing Difference in Cinema by Randall Halle (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Randall Halle opens his book with a clear statement of what is important to him in the contemporary moment politically and how it motivates his study of film as an intersection of visual and alterity studies. Recent global developments have "intensified," he argues, "what is at stake in the way we imagine our connections to each other and to our others, who we recognize as equal, and who we abject as foreign and threatening" (1). From the outset, the reader knows that the book will be about moving images, identity, difference, positionality, acts of signification, the techne\ of seeing, and the multidimensional relationships among all these phenomena. The main question that Halle addresses is how we might come to ... Read More

      Abstract: Wenn so etwas wirklich geschähe, würde das Universum enden.On September 14, 2019, Berlin celebrated Alexander von Humboldt's 250th birthday. The Humboldt Forum hosted a two-day series of lectures, performances, and roundtable discussions in its namesake's honor, kicking off a year-long series of events to pay tribute to the famous explorer and his brother Wilhelm. The German Historical Museum opened a major exhibit celebrating the Humboldt brothers as German cosmopolitans in an age of colonialism. The Museum for Natural History focused on Alexander's work as a geologist and mineralogist, while Berlin's Botanical Garden highlighted Humboldt's work as a naturalist. Bookstores featured Humboldt's collected works in ... Read More

  • How Not to Be a Socialist Statistician: The Case of Ernst Strnad

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: When trying to understand how scientific cultures change at times of political upheaval, the historian does well in treating the winner and loser symmetrically. As Shapin and Schaffer have argued in their classic study on the scientific revolution, the academic loser is as telling about the social constitution of a new knowledge regime as is the winner.1 This applies equally to the transformation of universities in the young GDR, moving from a national socialist regime to one rooted in Marxism-Leninism—a transition that was all the more difficult because it was paralleled by the political change from Stalinism to post-Stalinism.This article covers a debate between leading GDR statisticians, economists, and the ...

  • Lene und Rahel im deutschen Mörderhaus—Fragmente der jüdischen
           Leidensgeschichte in Helma Sanders-Brahms' Deutschland, bleiche Mutter
           (1980)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: "Das ist deine Geschichte."1 Diese schlichten Worte richtet die Tochter Anna an ihre Mutter Lene zu Beginn des Filmes Deutschland, bleiche Mutter. Die Regisseurin Helma Sanders-Brahms leiht Anna ihre Stimme aus dem Off, denn in diesem Film geht es um ihre eigene Familiengeschichte. Sie beginnt mit der Begegnung ihrer Eltern und endet mit Annas Kindheitserinnerungen aus der unmittelbaren Nachkriegszeit. Dennoch lassen die Worte "Das ist deine Geschichte" keinen Zweifel daran, wer die eigentliche Hauptfigur in der autobiographischen Verfilmung ist: die Mutter Lene. Lenes Träume, ihre zerstörten Hoffnungen und Schicksalsschläge zur Zeit des Nationalsozialimus stehen in Deutschland, bleiche Mutter, so scheint es, im ... Read More

      Abstract: "Ich denke, ich habe nur dadurch überlebt, weil ich Humor hatte," May Ayim said of her childhood with white German foster parents who urged her to be as invisible as possible ("du fällst sowieso schon auf wie ein bunter Hund").2 In Maria Binder's documentary (Hoffnung im Herz, 1997), we see Ayim standing in front of Berlin's M[---]straße subway station (soon to be renamed Anton-Wilhelm-Amo-Straße).3 Her eyes are challenging the camera as she opens her mouth to put in a white chocolate version of the marshmallow cake some manufacturers still call a M[---]kopf4 Later we see her reading lines from the short poem "exotik"5 in a set of different locations: "nachdem sie mich erst anschwärzten / zogen sie mich durch den ...

           Lichter

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 2002, following years of accession negotiations, the EU was preparing for a major eastward expansion. At the same time, German director Hans-Christian Schmid was filming the eastern border of the EU as it then existed between Germany and Poland. Through a series of interactions on both sides of the Polish-German border, his episodic film Lichter (Distant Lights, Hans-Christian Schmid, 2003) depicts a border region in flux.1 On one hand, the German border regime is shown to operate as what Randall Halle terms a "selective membrane" and "abjecting mechanism," letting certain people through and rejecting unwanted others.2 On the other hand, the border—constructed by social and political processes—is subject to ...

      Abstract: Die entscheidende Frage lautet also nicht "wo kommst du her'" sondern "Wo wollen wir zusammen hin'"In der repressiven Gesellschaft ist der Begriff des Menschen selber die Parodie der Ebenbildlichkeit. Es liegt im Mechanismus der "pathischen Projektion," dass die Gewalthaber als Menschen nur ihr eigenes Spiegelbild wahrnehmen, anstatt das Menschliche gerade als das Verschiedene zurückzuspiegeln."Identity politics were big. And Nivedita's understanding of identity politics was small."3 To remedy this situation, the protagonist of Mithu Sanyal's novel Identitti decides to take up intercultural studies and postcolonial theory at the Heinrich-Heine University in Düsseldorf.

  • Domestic Disputes: Examining Discourses of Home and Property in the Former
           East Germany by Necia Chronister (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In a new monograph entitled Domestic Disputes, Necia Chronister offers a diverse but deep study of property relations in the former East Germany of the 1990s and early 2000s. Her primary sources range from made-for-television and theatrical films to a short story and novels. The overarching theoretical constellations of the monograph are issues of Heimat and materiality; however, her exploration of the legal basis of property conflicts in the early years of reunification, as well as her precision in defining terms such as "neoliberalism" (3), "deterritorialization" (103), and "crises of masculinity" (150) in the context of her primary sources are equally helpful.The intricacies of legal disputes regarding property ...

  • Marking Modern Movement: Dance and Gender in the Visual Imagery of the
           Weimar Republic by Susan Funkenstein (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Through a series of case studies on the visual imagery of social and professional dance, Susan Funkenstein's interdisciplinary monograph Marking Modern Movement tracks interactions and relationships between dancers and visual artists during the Weimar era. Drawing primarily on literature from gender studies, cultural history, art history, and dance history, Funkenstein fluently describes and analyzes dance and visual art. The dancing body, Funkenstein argues, was a site of cultural debate used by artists to explore, challenge, or reinforce gender norms as well as racial stereotypes. Constantly reevaluating the self-other binary in a selection of "high" and popular visual art, Funkenstein aims to show how these ... Read More

  • Der Bubikopf. Männlicher Blick, weiblicher Eigen-Sinn by Helga
           Lüdtke (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The Bubikopf (the "Bob" haircut) is perhaps the most recognizable icon of the interwar period. Alongside Marlene Dietrich in a top hat and tails and Otto Dix's slender figures smoking cigarettes, it has endured as a sort of visual shorthand for the New Woman of the 1920s. And rightly so, as Helga Lüdtke demonstrates in her charming new book on the hairstyle that was about far more than fashion.At a time when life was opening up in dramatic ways (notwithstanding the persistence of most of the old patriarchal realities of the nineteenth century) and when the unprecedented visibility of women in public life was perhaps the most compelling storyline, the provocatively short hairstyle of the Bubikopf stood for the ...

  • Günter Grass and the Genders of German Memory: From The Tin Drum to
           Peeling the Onion by Timothy B. Malchow (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Throughout the course of his career but particularly since the appearance of his lengthy novel Der Butt (1977), with its presentation of a gender-based biological essentialism, Günter Grass has been regarded by most scholars as a quintessentially heterosexual male author who views men and women as so imprinted by their sex that their roles in life are somewhat predetermined. Men, as presented in most of Grass's novels, engage in exploration, exploitation, and war; they develop and often ravage the earth, while women usually provide nurture and shelter. Timothy Malchow's study is consistent with previous, often feminist-oriented scholarship in discerning such biological determinism throughout the course of Grass's ... Read More

  • The Mind of the Holocaust Perpetrator in Fiction and Nonfiction by Erin
           McGlothlin (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: How do we read the "mind of the Holocaust perpetrator"—and what is at stake in doing so' This question stands at the heart of Erin McGlothlin's astutely argued and methodologically groundbreaking study The Mind of the Holocaust Perpetrator in Fiction and Nonfiction. While the figure of the Holocaust perpetrator has long been the focus of research from different disciplinary backgrounds, the last decade saw an increase in literary works that take on the perspective of this figure. McGlothlin intervenes in the field of perpetrator studies by shifting the focus onto the ethically and aesthetically pertinent question of reading and interpretation. In that sense, the title of her book falls short of what she does (and ... Read More

  • Germany and Israel: White Washing and State Building by Daniel Marwecki
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: "Germany stands unconditionally by our friendship with Israel," declared German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas on May 20, 2021. "And," he added, "our support for the Palestinians, too, has always been dependable, even in challenging times." With these words, Maas set off for his visit to the region at a time in which Israel and Hamas were engaged in the heaviest round of fighting in the past few years. But the 2021 events were not just a matter of foreign policy concern for Germany, and the conflict quickly found an echo in German streets, too. In Bonn and Münster, protesters burnt Israeli flags in the street. Others, in Gelsenkirchen, chanted antisemitic slogans while heading towards the local synagogue. "Our ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: There was a time when a collection of articles on intercultural matters in the field of Germanistik would focus narrowly on "migrant literature" and its representation of cultural positioning. This volume, ambitiously including the word "worldwide" in its title and designed to be the first in a series on the topic, is evidence of the richness gained by an arrangement that lives up to Deleuze and Guattari's concept of rhizomatic knowledge structures. German is presented as a "relais language," a conduit with many entrances and exits which provides a loose limitation for relevance, and the collection itself is a relais place where thoughts and methodologies from different disciplines, including linguistics and ...
