Emotions in history : lost and found by Ute Frevert( )

19 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and Multiple languages and held by 1,787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Coming to terms with emotions and how they influence human behaviour, seems to be of the utmost importance to societies that are obsessed with everything "neuro." On the other hand, emotions have become an object of constant individual and social manipulation since "emotional intelligence" emerged as a buzzword of our times. Reflecting on this burgeoning interest in human emotions makes one think of how this interest developed and what fuelled it. From a historian's point of view, it can be traced back to classical antiquity. But it has undergone shifts and changes which can in turn shed light on social concepts of the self and its relation to other human beings (and nature). The volume focuses on the historicity of emotions and explores the processes that brought them to the fore of public interest and debate

A nation in barracks : modern Germany, military conscription and civil society by Ute Frevert( )

18 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,007 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Nation in Barracks shows how military-civil relations have evolved in Germany during the last two hundred years. This book investigates how conscription has contributed to instilling a strong sense of military commitment among the German public. The author looks at its relationship to state citizenship, nation building, gender formation and the concept of violence. She begins with the early nineteenth century, when conscription was first used in Prussia and initially met with harsh criticism from all aspects of society, and continues through the two Germanies of the post-1949 period. The book covers the Prussian model used during World War I, the Weimar Republic when no conscription was enforced, and the mass military mobilization of the Third Reich. Throughout this detailed examination, Ute Frevert examines how civil society deals with institutionalized violence and how this affects models of citizenship and gender relations
Men of honour : a social and cultural history of the duel by Ute Frevert( Book )

28 editions published between 1900 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Men of Honour is a wide-ranging account of the duel and its significance, from the early modern period to the twentieth century. Ute Frevert challenges the conventional view that the practice of settling disputes by duelling had died out in Europe by the end of the nineteenth century. Focusing on Germany, she draws on newspaper reports, archives and biographies to show that duelling continued to be practised widely among bourgeoisie and nobility until at least the First World War, and even later. Frevert discusses the social function of the duel and the changes it underwent between the early modern period and the twentieth century. She describes the men who took part - from young students to officers of rank, from famous writers and poets to mature noblemen - and illustrates the different times and places they chose for their combat. She explores the meaning of the duel for the participants, and in particular the ideal of 'honour' among men which compelled so many to put their lives at great risk. Men of Honour is a detailed and vivid account of male self-images and modes of behaviour in bourgeois society. It will be welcomed by students and researchers in social and cultural history and by anyone interested in the history of duelling

Learning how to feel : children's literature and emotional socialization, 1870-1970 by Ute Frevert( Book )

14 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Learning How to Feel explores the ways in which children and adolescents learn not just how to express emotions that are thought to be pre-existing, but actually how to feel. The volume assumes that the embryonic ability to feel unfolds through a complex dialogue with the social and cultural environment and specifically through reading material. The fundamental formation takes place in childhood and youth. A multi-authored historical monograph, Learning How to Feel uses children's literature and advice manuals to access the training practices and learning processes for a wide range of emotions in the modern age, c. 1870-1970. The study takes an international approach, covering a broad array of social, cultural, and political milieus in Britain, Germany, India, Russia, France, Canada, and the United States. Learning How to Feel places multidirectional learning processes at the centre of the discussion, through the concept of practical knowledge. The book innovatively draws a framework for broad historical change during the course of the period. Emotional interaction between adult and child gave way to a focus on emotional interactions among children, while gender categories became less distinct. Children were increasingly taught to take responsibility for their own emotional development, to find 'authenticity' for themselves. In the context of changing social, political, cultural, and gender agendas, the building of nations, subjects and citizens, and the forging of moral and religious values, Learning How to Feel demonstrates how children were provided with emotional learning tools through their reading matter to navigate their emotional lives"--Jacket
Die Politik der Demütigung Schauplätze von Macht und Ohnmacht by Ute Frevert( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In einem Gang durch 250 Jahre Geschichte schildert die Historikerin Ute Frevert, welche Rolle die öffentliche Beschämung in der modernen Gesellschaft spielt. In den unterschiedlichsten Bereichen werden die Demütigung und das damit einhergehende Gefühl der Scham zum Mittel der Macht - ob in der Erziehung von Kindern, im Strafrecht oder in Diplomatie und Politik. So wurden nach 1944 in Frankreich Frauen, die sich mit deutschen Besatzern eingelassen hatten, die Haare geschoren. Richter in den USA bestrafen Bürger neuerdings damit, dass diese an belebten Straßen auf einem Schild ihr Vergehen kundtun müssen. Nicht zuletzt der Medienpranger - wie im Fall von Jan Böhmermanns Schmähgedicht auf den türkischen Präsidenten Erdogan - und das Internet haben die öffentliche Beschämung allgegenwärtig gemacht. Ute Frevert zeigt nicht nur an zahlreichen Beispielen aus der Geschichte, wie Demütigungen in Szene gesetzt wurden und werden (wobei sich die Bilder über Epochen und Kulturen hinweg erstaunlich gleichen). Sie macht auch klar, dass die Moderne den Pranger keineswegs abgeschafft, sondern im Gegenteil neu erfunden hat. Nicht mehr der Staat beschämt und demütigt, sondern die Gesellschaft

Gefühlspolitik : Friedrich II als Herr über die Herzen? by Ute Frevert( Book )

11 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Durch Liebe, nicht durch Furcht und Gehorsamszwang sollte der König regieren. So bestimmte es die (früh)moderne Staatstheorie. Schon Friedrich II. von Preußen (1712-1786) wusste, dass es nicht ausreicht, über die Körper der Untertanen zu herrschen. Auch ihre Herzen wollen erobert werden. Doch die Geschichtsschreibung berichtet, dass Friedrich der Große weder mild noch sanft mit seinen Untertanen umging. Ute Frevert analysiert das Herrschaftsverständnis Friedrichs ebenso wie dessen gefühlspolitische Praktiken. Sie zeigt, mit welchen Mitteln der aufgeklärt-absolutistische König die Zustimmung und Zuneigung derjenigen suchte, die seiner Herrschaft unterworfen waren. Dieses Interesse machten sich die Untertanen zunutze: Sie stellten Bedingungen, formulierten Erwartungen und reagierten enttäuscht, wenn der König darauf nicht einging. Die Historikerin zeigt, dass Herrschaftskommunikation in zwei Richtungen verläuft, und das nicht erst in der heutigen Mediengesellschaft. Im 18. Jahrhundert entdeckt Frevert die Ansätze einer Gefühlspolitik, die ihre Spuren in der Moderne hinterlassen haben
"Mann und Weib, und Weib und Mann" : Geschlechter-Differenzen in der Moderne by Ute Frevert( Book )

14 editions published in 1995 in German and Undetermined and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Konstanzer Historikerin (vgl. auch BA 8/86, ID 27/91) interpretiert den Geschlechterbegriff in der Neuzeit. Zunächst in den Konversationslexika, dann in ausführlicheren Zeugnissen aus Literatur bzw. Politik. In den Debatten um das Frauenwahlrecht wurde z.B. immer wieder der Wehrdienst als Voraussetzung angeführt und die antimilitärische Haltung der Frauen als Gefahr für die Weltmachtpolitik gesehen, was nationalen Selbstmord bedeute. Im Bürgertum gereichte eine brave Hausmutter dem Mann zur Ehre, wenn sie ihm jedoch nicht mehr untergeordnet sei, würde das auch für den Staat Umsturz nach sich ziehen. Trotz aufrüttelnder Erkenntnisse eine eher trockene Lektüre. (3)

Emotional lexicons : continuity and change in the vocabulary of feeling 1700-2000 by Ute Frevert( )

18 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and French and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Emotions are as old as humankind. But what do we know about them and what importance do we assign to them? Emotional Lexicons is the first cultural history of terms of emotion found in German, French, and English language encyclopaedias since the late seventeenth century. Insofar as these reference works formulated normative concepts, they documented shifts in the way the educated middle classes were taught to conceptualise emotion by a literary medium targeted specifically to them. As well as providing a record of changing language use (and the surrounding debates), many encyclopaedia articles went further than simply providing basic knowledge; they also presented a moral vision to their readers and guidelines for behaviour. Implicitly or explicitly, they participated in fundamental discussions on human nature: Are emotions in the mind or in the body? Can we "read" another person's feelings in their face? Do animals have feelings? Are men less emotional than women? Are there differences between the emotions of children and adults? Can emotions be "civilised"? Can they make us sick? Do groups feel together? Do our emotions connect us with others or create distance? The answers to these questions are historically contingent, showing that emotional knowledge was and still is closely linked to the social, cultural, and political structures of modern societies." -- Publisher's information
