Ethnic drag : performing race, nation, sexuality in West Germany by Katrin Sieg( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ethnic Drag is a critical and entertaining look at the phenomenon of cultural masquerade and how it reveals racial feeling, thought, and behavior in postwar German culture. Contributing to considerations of drag in postcolonial, feminist, and queer scholarships, Ethnic Drag brings an analysis of postwar discourses on race to German cultural studies."--Jacket
Exiles, eccentrics, activists : women in contemporary German theater by Katrin Sieg( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

German artists and theorists have furnished many of the groundbreaking models of political theater whose critical, and sometimes revolutionary, potential continues to keep theater alive. German women's dramatic work reflects their active participation in major movements for social change, yet their plays have rarely reached the mainstage or found their way into the accounts of theater history. Katrin Sieg's study investigates how gender, central to these artists' works yet missing from the language of dramatic criticism, influenced women's use of politically powerful models and prompted their invention of new dramatic forms and performance styles
Choreographing the global in European cinema and theater by Katrin Sieg( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Increasingly the creative industries in Europe are harnessed to manage the social contradictions of globalization. In light of these trends, new modes of collectivity and transnational alliance have formed. This study explores the emergent forms of political theatre that resist both nationalist nostalgia and globalist enthusiasm and rests its focus on intentional relations, development. work, and war. Sieg explores European artists' critical engagement with the images and stories through which politicians and the media describe globalization and determines the impact of changes in these four areas on the democratic institutions and values that emerged in the era of nation states."--Jacket

The Spatial Imagination of Accelerated Globalization in Contemporary German-language Novels by Brooke D Kreitinger( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation investigates how contemporary German-language novels respond to changes in the ways in which people imagine living in relation to others under current conditions of globalization. I pay particular attention to how literary texts evoke alternative frames of belonging and modes of living under conditions of social transformation. I use theoretical contributions from literary scholars as well as cultural and social theories to identify literary models of transnational, cosmopolitan existence. In particular, I draw on Michel de Certeau's The Practice of Everyday Life to assess how literature grapples with issues of human space as their narrators and characters navigate socio-cultural, spatial and political boundaries. The selected novels explore everyday life on various scales of space. In Die Vermessung der Welt (2005), Daniel Kehlmann engages with Eurocentric notions of the global scale in the early modern era. I contend that the disjuncture between his protagonists' models of fluid space in contrast to the dominant model of absolute space results from cultural conditions associated with the capitalist logic of competition and individual success, which leads to unethical, alienating forms of intersubjectivity and a lack of agency. I then elucidate how Jenny Erpenbeck's Heimsuchung (2008) and Kerstin Hensel's Im Spinnhaus (2003) question cultural dimensions left intact in Kehlmann's world of flows by depicting the domestic space in eastern German provinces in order to unsettle patterns of behaviors that have resulted in fixity despite social transformation. Lastly, I assess how Perikles Monioudis' Land (2007) and Feridun Zaimoglu's Liebesbrand (2008) challenge modern approaches to space by engaging with questions of interpersonal proximity and forms of affinity associated with postmigrant existences in translocal settings of post-Cold War Europe. With recourse to the discourse of globalization, I contend that these novels grapple with perceptions and experiences of globalization through themes of alienation, stagnation in the face of acceleration, and difficulty in creating emotional bonds. By investigating the everyday interactions and behaviors that occur in the respective imagined worlds, I uncover notions of Germanness and cultural conditions that the authors associate with the contemporary malaise depicted in their novels

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Past, Politics, and Prose: Memories of War in Early Twenty-first Century German-language Novels by Anna Elizabeth Zimmer( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The selected texts present the reader with models of memory that situate present-day German-speaking Europe not only in a diverse collection of European WWII memories, but also in a historically longer and geographically broader mnemonic network. Informed by the concept of screen memory (Freud), my comparative analysis of Nicol Ljubić's Meeresstille (2010) and Lukas Bärfuss' Hundert Tage (2008) reveals the international ramifications of German and Swiss post-war identities and elucidates how memory can foster intercultural understanding or conceal historical specificity. In my analysis of Ludwig Laher's documentary novel, Verfahren (2011), I create a working definition of the documentary novel in order explore how documentary techniques and the articulation of multidirectional memories (Rothberg) of asylum seeking in the 1930s and early 2000s can educate the readers about present-day social issues. Finally, I argue that through the articulation of numerous memories of loss from New York, Hamburg, and Baghdad, Thomas Lehr's September. Fata Morgana (2010), reveals that post-9/11 societies, like their memories, are not predestined to conflict
