Edinburgh German Yearbook 14

Politics and Culture in Germany and Austria Today

Edited by Frauke Matthes, Dora Osborne, Katya Krylova and Myrto Aspioti

  • Description
Examines the heightened role of politics in contemporary German and Austrian cultural productions and institutions and what it means for German Studies.
As debates about Europe, migration, resurgent nationalism, and neoliberalism intensify in Germany and Austria, politics has gained particular prominence in cultural production and cultural institutions. How does this development affect German Studies as a discipline and a practice? Volume 14 of Edinburgh German Yearbook examines political or politicized aspects of contemporary life that have become increasingly significant for culture today. The contributions gathered here offer engaging readings of contemporary literary texts (including work by Saša Stanišić, Anke Stelling, and Timur Vermes), films (by Fatih Akın, Ruth Beckermann, and Andreas Dresen), and other forms of cultural intervention (the polemics of Max Czollek and Oliver Polak, and the activism of the left-feminist group Burschenschaft Hysteria). These encourage us to consider how communities are being (re)shaped by current political and social crises, antagonisms around memory cultures, questions of European identity, as well as challenges to the status of an assumed Leitkultur and the discourse of integration.

The editors are FRAUKE MATTHES, University of Edinburgh; DORA OSBORNE, University of St Andrews; KATYA KRYLOVA, University of Aberdeen; and MYRTO ASPIOTI, University of Oxford.
