Jazz echoes: The cultural and sociopolitical reception of jazz in Weimar and Nazi Berlin, 1925-1939 by Joshua Sternfeld( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Berlin's entertainment scene prospered until the outbreak of the war in the city's coffeehouses and dance halls, which became a fiercely contested sociopolitical site. Chapter 2 examines the aesthetic and performative criteria that contributed to fashioning German-style dance music. Chapter 3 handles the racialization of jazz according to Germany's long history of Negrophobia. Chapter 4 addresses a hitherto unexamined area: the socioeconomic status of the typical entertainment musician as Angestellte, or white-collared employee. Chapter 5 reexamines these issues during the Nazi period, arguing that the consolidation of cultural production created unforeseen difficulties in regulating jazz reception through recordings and live performance. Chapter 6 concludes with a reconstruction of the Nazi Berlin soundscape, focusing on performers, venues, and anti-Semitic activity that culminated with the 1938 riots known as Kristallnacht. More than an intellectualized symbol of primitivism or degeneration, the German jazz experience was comprised of performance practices, memories, and contested music traditions

"The pistol virgin" : feminism, sexuality, and honor in Belle Époque France by Andrea Mansker( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This cultural history investigates a series of unexamined debates on sexuality, honor, singleness, violence, and subjectivity through the foil of a widely publicized French feminist dueling challenge in 1911. Accused of lesbianism by a male journalist due to an inflammatory anti-marriage article she penned, Arria Ly judged her honor "outraged" and issued a demand for reparation to the paper's editor-in-chief. I approach the "Ly-Massat Affair" as a microhistorical lens that ofPers new perspectives on, and suggests a reevaluation of, the dominant historiographical views of feminism, the system of honor, and sexual politics in early twentieth-century France. In each chapter, I examine how a shifting socioeconomic terrain that provided new opportunities to women prompted many to reconceptualize conventional forms of honor, language and sexuality to fit their altered roles. In response to the Ly-Massat incident, numerous individuals delineated an independent form of feminine honor detached from both sexual virtue and from motherhood. My thesis challenges the consensus among historians that public honor was exclusively attached to male bodies and relationships throughout the prewar era. I further explore attempts to negotiate the outlines of the professional woman's identity through debates on the meaning of virginity, on the significance of the double appellation "Madame/Mademoiselle," and on the personal and political significance of sexuality within the feminist movement. While this case points to women's endeavors to move beyond established feminine stereotypes, it also exposes the persistence and reformulation of theological traditions that have not been studied in this context. Examining textbooks and diaries of former Catholic boarding school students, I argue that these institutions offered a powerful alternative to the narrow definition of sexual identity available to women in secular society, and contributed to Ly's formulation of a modern feminist doctrine. Moreover, the Ly-Massat affair reveals the historically specific dilemma of a sizeable segment of women neglected by scholars of the French women's movement. It draws our attention to the increasingly conspicuous strata of single women in the early twentieth century who struggled to create sexual identities for new lived realities, and who, in fact, formed the base of support for French feminism

James Ensor : the Temptation of Saint Anthony by Susan Marie Canning( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This engaging volume describes the creation and restoration of the extraordinary large-scale drawing 'The Temptation of Saint Anthony' - a work by late 19th-century Belgian artist James Ensor (1860-1949) that is composed of fifty-one sheets of paper collaged into a hallucinatory social critique and artist's manifesto. Each sheet of the nearly six-foot-high work is reproduced at actual size, revealing Ensor's remarkable technique and fertile imagination. Here, Saint Anthony is surrounded not with nature - as customary - but with the moral decay of society. Replete with tiny scenes depicting both sexual temptation and spiritual piety, Ensor splices potent imagery from travelogues, popular science and technology magazines into a Symbolist masterpiece. Susan M. Canning and Kimberly J. Nichols recount the fascinating tale that led to the work's restoration and first public showing in more than sixty years.0Exhibition: The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, USA (10.6.-31.8.2014) / The Art Institute of Chicago, USA (23.11.2014-25.1.2015)
