The GSR con- tains articles and book reviews in history, literature, culture studies, politics and government, or interdisciplinary topics. Publication is in the language of submission, English or German. Members of the Association are the pri- mary book reviewers. Published by Berghahn Books, the series represents the culmina- tion of four long-standing trends within the association.

The third is the increasing collaboration at the GSA among scholars from around the world who share interests the society, politics, and culture of the German-speaking peoples, from the Middle Ages to the present day. Our hope is that the volumes of Spektrum, taken as a whole, will reflect the dizzying variety of GSA mem- bers in terms of scholarly discipline—cultural anthropology, musicology, sociology, art, theology, film studies, philosophy, art history, literary criti- cism, history, and political science—as well as methodology, subject matter, and historical period.

This will be our first- ever meeting in Kansas City, and our first in the state of Missouri in over a quarter of a century. Kansas City is the headquarters of Hallmark Cards. It is also across the street from the beautifully restored Union Station, which this year is commemorating its own centennial. And, as we all know, this year witnesses the centennial of the First World War, and thus it is especially appropriate that the German Studies Association is meeting in Kansas City. See below for further details on the Museum. The Kansas City region is full of other interesting tourist destinations as well.

The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art houses one of the most diverse col- lections in the country. For jazz lovers, Kansas City is truly special.

Close to the latter in the famous 18th and Vine His- toric District are the superb collections of the Negro Leagues Baseball Mu- seum, honoring the rich legacy of African-American baseball players before and immediately after Jackie Robinson and the desegregation of the sport in The city is just- ly renowned for its steaks and barbecue, and excellent dining possibilities abound. Finally, not to be overlooked in nearby Independence, Missouri, is the Harry S.

Truman Presidential Library, which is full of materials of inter- est to scholars investigating the early Cold War and the German-speaking world after Truman National Historic Site—is also open to the public. Our first morning time slots will take place at AM, thirty minutes earlier than in past years. We have also, with the encouragement of the Executive Board, compressed the three Sunday sessions so that the entire conference will be over by PM. We understand that Sunday ses- sions can create travel difficulties, so we hope this will help.

We are also continuing our experiment with a series of seminars that will run for three days during the first morning time slot. After the great success of our first set of twelve seminars in , this year we are offering nineteen. See below for complete details. Our annual conference is enriched each year by the support and partici- pation—in sessions, roundtables, and receptions—of a number of affiliated societies and organizations.

We are deeply grateful to all these organiza- tions for their continued support and participation. Not surprisingly, many sessions and round- tables this year will focus on the centennial of World War I and the twenty- fifth anniversary of the events of As in previous years, many sessions and roundtables in will be spon- sored by the GSA Interdisciplinary Networks. Details can be found below. Again, we are looking forward to an exceptional series of luncheon and ban- quet speakers this year, as well as a special Thursday-evening event; we hope that as many of you as possible can attend these important events.

The Thursday-evening event will be free of charge. As part of our commemoration of the centennial of the First World War, the GSA is delighted to sponsor a special Thursday-evening lecture at p. As we approach the twenty-fifth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, we are pleased to welcome Walter Momper as our Friday luncheon speaker. November Momper also served as chair of the So- cial Democratic fraction in the Berlin Abgeordnetenhaus and as President of that body from until She is on the editorial boards of Modern Intellectual History, German History, and the Journal of Art Historiography; and she is the recipient of many grants and awards.

At our Saturday luncheon, dramatist and novelist Maxi Obexer will read from her works in progress. Obexer was born in the German-speaking area of South Tirol in Italy. She is also currently working on a second novel, from which we hope she will read. General Information 13 We are also pleased to announce that a special guest from Switzerland will attend our conference. His early scholarship concerned Grillparzer and E. He has been a guest professor at Stanford University and a Fellow of the Wissenschafts- kolleg in Berlin.

Familiendesaster in der Literatur , Die tintenblauen Eidgenossen. Zur Literatur und Politik der Schweiz This last was awarded the Schweizer Buchpreis, the only time that award has been conferred upon a non-belletristic work. Together, the pair received the Kultur- preis der Innerschweiz, and earlier this year they were jointly awarded the Johann-Melchior-Wyrsch-Preis in recognition of their work on behalf of the culture of the Innerschweiz, in particular the canton Nidwalden.

We hope that as many of you as possible will be able to join us in Kansas City.

The sections below contain information on conference registration, hotel reservations, travel to Kansas City, and the like. We look forward to seeing you there! Best regards, David E. In its current state, the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial opened in , but it is the successor to the Liberty Memorial Museum, which began collecting objects and documents in It now contains over , artifacts from the First World War, and it also houses a major li- brary, research center, and documentation center. The Museum seeks to be truly international in its coverage of the First World War.

The Program Committee for the Conference The GSA is deeply grateful to the Program Committee for its contribution to the success of this conference, and all members should also thank the Committee for working hard to achieve a successful meeting.

The GSA salutes the most recent cohorts of Berlin Fellows, and is pleased to announce that all the members of these groups will receive a free one-year membership in the Association. Their names, affiliations, and research top- ics follow below. The GSA will continue to provide one-year complimentary memberships to each cohort of Berlin Fellows. The jointly funded guest professorship program—the German share of which is provided by the Foreign Office—was inaugurated in at the University of Minnesota.

The program was initially designed with a view to fostering curricular innovation in the field of German Studies and sup- porting a multi-faceted approach to the study of things German in Ameri- can and Canadian higher education. Over the years, more than German guest professors in a variety of disciplines have contributed an authentic and up-to-date perspective from a contemporary German point of view to the study of Germany, its recent history and its current political, social, and economic reality. There are currently 21 German scholars in the North American guest pro- fessorship program as well as two Sponsored Chairs for German and Euro- pean Studies.

Candidates for these positions are selected by a bi-national academic committee in an open and rigorous multi-step recruiting process. The predominant aim of the continued support for the Centers is to provide a young generation of academics with expert knowledge on Germany and Europe in order to prop- agate expertise and to ensure continued cooperation between Germany and its international partners.

Beginning in , six Centers for German and European Studies were suc- cessively established at American universities, followed by four Centers at Canadian universities as of The Centers emphasize collaboration in the humanities and social sciences in order to promote the academic study of Germany in a European con- text by way of an interdisciplinary approach.

At the same time they help to further develop networks of political, economic, and cultural ties between Europe and North America. Parente, Jr. All GSA members are invited to attend. This is the opportunity for members to learn about the GSA, to ask questions of officers, to volunteer suggestions and proposals, and to become involved in the Association. Book Exhibits The Book Exhibit Area is located in the Century Foyer and the Garden Terrace, on easily accessible, adjacent hotel levels and close to the confer- ence registration area.

This will be an opportunity to come network with the networks: meet and mix with the members of the Interdisciplinary Committee and the network coordinators, discuss best practices for organizing a panel series with a consistent focus and find out how to get involved with the existing networks and brainstorm new ones. In addition, the GSA hosts a number of groups that will hold receptions and cocktail parties during the Conference.

Some of these events are open to all Conference participants, and some are restricted to invitees only. Each organization sets its own invitation terms. We will announce events as they are brought to our attention. Senators O Good Neighbors?

Rosenthal, Gabriele The first part of the course covers data collection and research design as well as the visualisation and description of data with graphs and tables. The course then turns to probability and sample distributions necessary for the inferential statistical methods which are subsequently introduced.

The course will also address the difference between correlation and causality. All the concepts will be illustrated with real-world examples and accompanied by readings of applied research in the social sciences. It represents an act of dividing, i. We investigate sexed and gendered boundaries between bodies, communities, cultures, classes, races, ethnicities, religions, sexualities, and nations. The second unit analyzes conceptualizations of citizenship as practices of drawing boundaries, and we examine how these boundaries intersect, connect, and prohibit.

In considering definitions of nationhood and belonging, we examine how boundaries can connect individuals in solidarity, as well separate out others. In this course we use statistics, history, political and social sciences, filmic representations, news reports, essays, medical texts, and biographies to conduct our interdisciplinary investigation. Our guiding approach is one of transnational feminism, which seeks to find solidarity between women by understanding and embracing their differences. For example, something that one culture views as inherently masculine may be viewed as inherently feminine in another.

Therefore, our transcultural examination helps us understand the socially constructed nature of a system that is often viewed as natural, unchanging, and stable. Film is often understood as a primarily visual art form, with the development of novel visual technologies, such as 3D, being heavily advertised and well known to mainstream international audiences. In this course, we will uncover an equally important, yet often overlooked, component of film: music. Over the course of the semester we will examine how music has contributed to the success and evolution of films throughout the history of the film industry in North America and Europe.

We will begin with a discussion of the stylistic origins of film music in the Western and specifically Germanic classical music tradition, with particular focus on the influence of Richard Wagner. This will be followed by an investigation into the intertwining histories of film and sound-recording technology during their infancy, in which we will examine groundbreaking techniques and works developed in Germany, France, and the United States. Our second task will be to situate the role of film music in some of the most vital movement and moments in film history.

In our third unit, we expand our investigation beyond film drama to survey how music and sound are used to construct genre. For instance, during our week on musicals we will consider how the early history of the genre was situated in Hollywood, but quickly sparked an international genre including creative re-workings of the genre such as Les parapluies de Cherbourg The Umbrellas of Cherbourg and the truly global production, Dance in the Dark.

Our semester will end with an exploration of films that were inspired largely by music rather than music composed to fit film. This unit will include a week on music documentaries and the construction of realism, as well as avant-garde explorations of the intersections of film and music. As is the case for all of the arts, Berlin is an ideal location in which to study music and film. Thus, we will explore this cultural landscape with specific encounters that will complement our conversations and readings.

In Energizing Europe, we investigate how these transitions impact EU carbon emissions, resources, economy, society, and geopolitical security. Topics include: i.

EU natural gas policy — external issues including dependence on Russia and pipelines through Ukraine, attempts to diversify with Norwegian, North African and Caspian gas and with US liquefied natural gas LNG ; and internal issues such as market unification, interconnection of pipelines, anti-monopoly efforts, fracking, and competition from cheap carbon-intensive coal; iv. Throughout, students follow current German, EU and related global energy affairs.

This course should be of interest to students of both social and natural sciences. This course explores the legacy of the Protestant Reformation on Germany and Europe in light of its upcoming th commemoration. It discusses the linkages between the intellectual and religious dynamics of the epoch of the Augustinian monk Martin Luther and those of our modern society.

In doing so, it explores the basic question to what extent we can interpret modern aspects of and changes in the realms of religion, politics, economics, science, and art as a demonstrable outgrowth of the Reformation and its aftermath. The course begins with a historical, theological, and literary overview of the 16th century and an exploration of the historical roots of Reformation ideas in England and Bohemia.

The course then explores several aspects of Reformation ideas and asks in five thematic sessions, whether or where the long-term impact of the historical transformation wrought or ignited by the Reformation becomes visible. Each session gives an overview of Reformation-related literature, provides the historical setting, and presents the main theses of modern thinkers, such as Max Weber, Thomas Luckmann or Peter Berger.

Themes such as changes in the realm of religion due to the Protestant Reformation are applied to current societal questions. Special attention is given to international differences with respect to the legacy of the Reformation, i. This course provides an introduction to recent developments in Germany and the EU with regard to a green and sustainable economy.

It offers theoretical as well as practical insights based on conceptual discussions, case studies, a field-trip, and group work to develop a green business case. The acute awareness of environmental challenges has permeated German and European society, politics, and business for decades. The relationship between business and environmental issues has, however, changed drastically over the years and has continuously been impacted by the interaction between the German and European Union political levels. This view is increasingly becoming more differentiated. Nowadays, positive environmental impacts, which might be achievable through sustainable entrepreneurship and sustainable core business activities, are increasingly being acknowledged.

This course begins by exploring key concepts for a green and sustainable economy in the German and European policy contexts and then looks at the development that has taken place both at the political level and in the economy in recent time. We then focus on the micro-level, i. What are the roles and strategies of different types of companies?

Why and how do incumbents and start-ups engage in environmental protection in different ways? Finally, in this more theoretical part of the course, we will look at how sustainable entrepreneurs may encounter market and regulatory barriers related to environmental externalities, path dependencies, and lobbying activities by incumbent companies. We will also look at partial solutions to such barriers provided by e.

In the more practical part of the course, we will engage with good practice examples hearing directly from the entrepreneurs themselves guest speakers and by going on a field-trip. The students will also be encouraged to creatively develop their own business ideas and plan the initial steps using the Sustainable Business Canvas. The goal of the course is to provide students with a theoretical foundation in the development of green and sustainable solutions within the economic context of Germany and Europe and to develop an understanding of how sustainable entrepreneurship is unfolding creative potential and opportunities for environmental improvements using core business activities.

The course also aims at equipping students with more practical tools and processes for developing their own business ideas for the green economy. The European Union consists of pluralist and secular nation-states. In this course, students will encounter some of these differences between the normative and the factual as we pursue a series of analytical and learning objectives. Students will focus on the often problematic and conflictual triangle of migration, ethnicity, and religion and ground our exploration of relevant theory in a discussion of empirical case-studies on the wider European as well as on the local Berlin levels.

Students will especially examine more closely the often highly emotionalized and mostly too simplistic public debates, which take place mostly around the categories of ethnicity and religion. Thereby we will also look at diverse forms of multimedia-based representations of the highly complex and multidimensional dynamics involved in migration processes, inasmuch as people do not come only as ethicized or religionized subjects.

They come also as gendered and gendering persons. They come with their professions, their political viewpoints, their personal tastes, ethics and aesthetics, subcultures and complex worldviews — in other words, they come as individual persons, like anybody else. As a result, they actively contribute to the spatial, cultural, and social dynamics of migration, as well as to the controversies arising around them.

Based on constructivist approaches drawn from cultural and social anthropology, students will establish the basics of transnational migration theory, focusing especially on the fields of critical migration and mobility research, postcolonial studies, globalization theory, the anthropology of the state, of religion and of multimedia representation.

Students will question different forms of mobility, while being aware of their historical contexts in the rise of the European nation-state, and will think about the consequences of the contemporary politics of fear and identity, played out along the lines of the production and reproduction of fixed cultural boundaries, which thereby foster xenophobic worldviews.

In the case of populist discourse, students thus encounter political manifestations that directly threaten the ideals of the European Union. A final objective of the course will be to explore ways to think beyond the conventional framings of identity.

Jahrhundert erworben. German Cinema to offers an overview of the development of film in Germany from its origins in the German Empire of the late nineteenth century through the end of the National Socialist period. While this course centers on close readings of works that belong to the canon of German film, it also includes examples of popular, experimental and documentary filmmaking.

The course hopes to achieve three interrelated aims:. This course assumes no prior knowledge of German, German films, or film theory in general. It is taught in English and all sound-films have English subtitles. From virtual instruments to illegal downloads, recent decades have seen the landmark effects of digital technology on the production and dissemination of musical content.

In this course, we will examine the nature of these shifts and sample salient and productive intersections of music and technology in transatlantic contexts. Through specific case studies, we will tackle the following questions: How have these technologies encouraged unprecedented modes of hearing and acquiring music? In what ways has digital music technology enabled personal and communal experiences with musical content and style?

The first unit of the course will examine the nature of experiencing music in the digital era. Our second unit will explore the manner in which musicians and producers have employed digital tools to develop new industry standards. Our third goal will be to consider the manner in which digital music technologies have been applied to media outside of the mainstream music industry. Throughout the semester, we will consider how these technological shifts have encouraged and enabled a globalized reception of music that simultaneously hinges on the role of geographic centers.

Berlin will serve as our primary example of this, as it is a well-respected center of multiple musical scenes including classical and electronic dance music that participates in a globalized mainstream music industry. Thus, our discussions of these topics will often reference musical movements, companies, and technologies associated with Berlin and elsewhere , but we will situate these topics within the broader transatlantic music industry.

Students can reach the city center from the apartments in about 20 minutes. All apartments come equipped with a kitchen, bathrooms, and common areas. Kitchen utensils can be rented for an additional fee. Washing machines are available, and students are responsible for their own meals. Between-term housing the period between fall and spring semesters is included for academic year students.

Host families serve as a unique introduction into German culture and may be made up of a married couple with children, a divorced or widowed woman with children still at home, or a family with some members living at home and others living outside the home. Students living with a host family will have two meals per day provided.

Students will have their own single room, and a key to come and go as they please. Between-term housing the period between fall and spring semesters is not included for academic year students, so these students will need to move their belongings out while they return home or travel over winter break.
