Technologies and Techniques of Gender 6. Disorder or Subordination? In myriad ways, emerging ideas about the body in relation to health, movement, gender, and sexuality were at the heart of art and life at the school. Bauhaus Bodies reassesses the work of both well-known Bauhaus members and those who have unjustifiably escaped scholarly scrutiny, its women in particular. In fourteen original, cutting-edge essays by established experts and emerging scholars, this book reveals how Bauhaus artists challenged traditional ideas about bodies and gender.
Written to appeal to students, scholars, and the broad public, Bauhaus Bodies will be essential reading for anyone interested in modern art, architecture, design history, and gender studies; it will define conversations and debates during the centenary of the Bauhaus's founding and beyond.

The sense of an ending: music's return to the land of childhood-- Epilogue. Her exploration of the expressive potential of Schicksalslied, Nanie, Gesang der Parzen, and the Vier ernste Gesange reveals the philosophical weight of this music. She considers the German tradition of the poetics of loss that extends from the late-eighteenth-century texts by Hoelderlin, Schiller and Goethe set by Brahms, and includes other philosophical and poetic works present in his library, to the mid-twentieth-century aesthetics of Adorno, who was preoccupied as much by Brahms as by their shared literary heritage.
Her multifaceted focus on endings - the end of tonality, the end of the nineteenth century, and themes of loss in the music - illuminates our understanding of Brahms and lateness, and the place of Brahms in the fabric of modernist culture.

Characters before copyright : the rise and regulation of fan fiction in eighteenth-century Germany . Birkhold, Matthew H. Summary How did authors control the literary fates of fictional characters before the existence of copyright?
Could a second author do anything with another author's character? Situated between the decline of the privilege system and the rise of copyright, literary borrowing in eighteenth-century Germany has long been considered unregulated. This book tells a different story. Like fan fiction today, these texts took the form of sequels, prequels, and spinoffs. Analyzing the evolving reading, writing, and consumer habits of late-eighteenth-century Germany, 'Characters before Copyright' identifies the social, economic, and aesthetic changes that fostered the rapid rise of fan fiction after Based on archival work and an ethnographic approach borrowed from legal anthropology, this book then uncovers the unwritten customary norms that governed the production of these works.
These norms translated into a unique type of literature that gave rise to remarkable forms of collaborative authorship and originality. Chronica Slavorum. Description Book — pages ; 25 cm.

The conquest of ruins : the Third Reich and the fall of Rome .
Hell, Julia, author. Chicago : The University of Chicago Press, Description Book — xiv, pages : illustrations ; 23 cm Summary The Roman Empire has been a source of inspiration and a model for imitation for Western empires practically since the moment Rome fell. Yet, as Julia Hell shows in The Conquest of Ruins, what has had the strongest grip on aspiring imperial imaginations isn't that empire's glory but its fall--and the haunting monuments left in its wake. Hell examines centuries of European empire-building--from Charles V in the sixteenth century and Napoleon's campaigns of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries to the atrocities of Mussolini and the Third Reich in the s and '40s--and sees a similar fascination with recreating the Roman past in the contemporary image.
In every case--particularly that of the Nazi regime--the ruins of Rome seem to represent a mystery to be solved: how could an empire so powerful be brought so low?
Hell argues that this fascination with the ruins of greatness expresses a need on the part of would-be conquerors to find something to ward off a similar demise for their particular empire. H45 Unknown. Constructing imperial Berlin : photography and the metropolis . Paeslack, Miriam, author. Minneapolis : University of Minnesota Press, Description Book — xix, pages : illustrations, map ; 26 cm Summary Contents Introduction 1. Yet research on Berlin's past has focused on the interwar years of the Weimar Republic or the Cold War era, with much less attention to the crucial Imperial years between and Constructing Imperial Berlin is the first book to critically assess, contextualize, and frame urban and architectural photographs of that era.
Berlin, as it was pronounced Germany's capital in , was fraught with questions that had previously beset Paris and London. How was urban expansion and transformation to be absorbed? What was the city's understanding of its comparably short history? Given this short history, how did it embody the idea of a capital? A key theme of this book is the close interrelation of the city's rapid physical metamorphosis with repercussions on promotional and critical narratives, the emergence of groundbreaking photographic technologies, and novel forms of mass distribution.
Providing a rare analysis of this significant formative era, Miriam Paeslack shows a city far more complex than the common cliches as a historical and aspiring place suggest. Imperial Berlin emerges as a modern metropolis, only half-heartedly inhibited by urban preservationist concerns and rather more akin to North American cities in their bold industrialization and competing urban expansions than to European counterparts.
B47 P34 Unknown. Constructions of victimhood : remembering the victims of state socialism in Germany . Clarke, David, author. Introduction: Thinking about the victims of state socialism2. Victimhood and the politics of memory and transitional justice3. Victims' organizations and the construction of victimhood4. Compensating the victims of state socialism5. Memorial museums for the victims of state socialism: controversies and conflicts6. Conclusion: The Future of Victimhood.
These victims were not passive objects of the West German state's policy, but organized themselves into associations that fought for recognition of their contribution to the fight against communism. After German unification, the task of commemorating and compensating these victims continued under entirely new political circumstances, yet also in the context of global trends in memory politics and transitional justice that give priority to addressing the fate of victims of non-democratic regimes.
Constructions of Victimhood: Remembering the Victims of State Socialism in Germany draws on the constructivist systems theory of Niklas Luhmann to analyze the role of victims organizations, the political system, and historians and heritage professionals in the struggle over the memory of suffering under state socialism, from the Cold War to the present day. The book argues that the identity and social role of victims has undergone a process of constant renegotiation in this period, offering an innovative theoretical framework for understanding how restorative measures are formulated to address the situation of victims.
As such, it offers not only insights into a neglected aspect of post-war German history, but also contributes to the ongoing academic debate about the role of victims in process of transitional justice and the politics of memory. C53 Unknown. Corporate acquisitions and mergers in Germany .

At the age of eighteen, the headstrong protagonist decides to volunteer in the Nazi labour camps in Germany. Wishing to disprove what she sees as the lies that are being told about Nazi-Fascism, she instead encounters the horrors of life there - and is changed completely. Shedding her identity, she joins a group of deportees being sent to Dachau concentration camp. She escapes the camp in October , and wanders around a Germany devastated by allied bombardments.
Then, in February , while helping dig in rubble seeking to rescue survivors, a wall falls on her and she is left paralysed from the waist down. Translated into English for the first time, Deviation is an autobiographical novel about the repression of memory, and one woman's attempt to make sense of the hell she has lived through.

London : Bloomsbury Reader, Description Book — 56 pages ; 18 cm Summary 'Victor Gregg is the most remarkable spokesman for the war generation' Dan Snow In Slaughterhouse-Five, Kurt Vonnegut fictionalised his time as a prisoner of war in Dresden in Vonnegut was imprisoned in a cellar while the firestorm raged through the city, wiping out generations of innocent lives.
Victor Gregg remained above ground throughout the firebombing. This is his true eyewitness account of that week in February He was captured at Arnhem where he volunteered to be sent to a work camp rather than become another faceless number in the huge POW camps. With two failed escape attempts under his belt, Gregg was eventually caught sabotaging a factory and sent to Dresden for execution.
Before Gregg could be executed, the British Royal Air Force and the United States Army Air Forces dropped more than 3, tons of high-explosive bombs and incendiary devices on Dresden in four air raids over two days in February The resulting firestorm destroyed six square miles of the city centre. Post-war discussion of whether or not the attacks were justified has led to the bombing becoming one of the moral questions of the Second World War. In Gregg's first-hand narrative, personal and punchy, he describes the trauma and carnage of the Dresden bombing.
After the raid, he spent five days helping to recover a city of innocent civilians, thousands of whom had died in the fire storm, trapped underground in human ovens. As order was restored, his life was once more in danger and he escaped to the east, spending the last weeks of the war with the Russians. D7 G Unknown.

Women in science : struggle and success Examining the Mileva story.
The story begins The story emerges Collaboration as students Collaboration during their marriage The story spreads The story continues The story concludes Appendixes. Was Einstein's first wife his uncredited coauthor, unpaid assistant, or his unacknowledged helpmeet? The real "Mileva Story. When a trove of correspondence between them beginning in their student days was discovered in , her story began to be told. Some of the tellers of the "Mileva Story" made startling claims: that she was a brilliant mathematician who surpassed her husband, and that she made uncredited contributions to his most celebrated papers in , including his paper on special relativity.
This book, based on extensive historical research, uncovers the real "Mileva Story. Mileva's ambitions for a science career, however, suffered a series of setbacks-failed diploma examinations, a disagreement with her doctoral dissertation adviser, an out-of-wedlock pregnancy by Einstein. She and Einstein married in and had two sons, but the marriage failed. Was Mileva her husband's uncredited coauthor, unpaid assistant, or his essential helpmeet? It's tempting to believe that she was her husband's secret collaborator, but the authors of Einstein's Wife look at the actual evidence, and a chapter by Ruth Lewin Sime offers important historical context.
The story they tell is that of a brave and determined young woman who struggled against a variety of obstacles at a time when science was not very welcoming to women. E52 E88 Unknown. Das Ende der Mittelschicht : Abschied von einem deutschen Erfolgsmodell . Goffart, Daniel, author.

The European dimension of Germany's energy transition : opportunities and conflicts . Cham, Switzerland : illustrations, maps : Springer,  Description Book — x, pages ; 25 cm Summary Towards a European energy transition?
This book addresses the interactions between Germany's energy transition and the EU's energy policy framework. It seeks to analyze the manifold connections between the prospects of the proclaimed "Energy Union" and the future of Germany's energy transition, and identifies relevant lessons for the transformation at the EU level that can be learned from the case of Germany, as a first-mover of transforming energy systems towards renewables. The various repercussions political, economic and systemic from the national transition are explored within the EU context as it responds to the German transition, taking into account both existing frictions and potential synergies between predominantly national sustainability policies and the EU's push towards harmonized policies within a common market.
The book's overall aim is to identify the most critical issues, in order to avoid pitfalls and capitalize on opportunities. G32 E95 Unknown. L83 Unavailable On order Request. C V.

The Catholic Reformation. The Catholic Reformation Including French Diocesan Catechisms There is no longer any question today of reducing the Catholic Reformation of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries to just the Counter-Reformation. The latter unquestionable existed, but constituted only a chapter - and not the best one - in a very profound transformation of the Catholic Church.
This explains the interest in making available at least some of the first-hand documents that allow us to appreciate the originality, richness, and vigour of Tridentine Catholicism. The Catholic Renaissance The Catholic Renaissance is amenable to two historical readings that are in certain respects contradictory.
According to one, it was a period of hardening of the structures, a regimentation of the masses, and an attempt at total catechizing, and all that thanks to the support of the state. But on the other hand it was sanctity, beauty, and piety. These two aspects, which might appear incompatible, cohabitated in reality in everyday life.
And if an effective and quantitatively important Christianization resulted from the methodical and powerfully orchestrated action of the Church of Rome it was because this action was quantitatively doubled, supported, and vivified from within by the treasures of devotion, heroism, charity, spirituality, and creative imagination. Without these, the great clerical machine would not have accomplished any more than putting a ponderous bureaucracy in place. The spirit of organization With the Catholic Renaissance appeared a new characteristic in Christian history: the spirit of organization.
On the whole this constituted an enrichment of the mental equipment of Western man at the beginning of the early modern period.
