Romancing the shadow : Poe and race by Gerald J. (Ed.) Kennedy( Book )

13 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edgar Allan Poe's strength as a writer lay in fabricating fantasies in settings far removed from his own place and time. This book revisits the Poe's issue, re-examining what it means to speak of an author or his work as a racist, and where the critic's responsibility lies

Cultural memory and the construction of identity( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How do we remember persons, objects, events? Memory seems so personal, but, at the same time, it is shaped by collective experience and public representations. Newspapers, television, and even celebrations and festivities mark for us not only who we are, but also who we were and how we lived." "Cultural memory and the Construction of Identity brings together scholars of folklore, literature, history, and communication to explore the dynamics of cultural memory in a variety of contexts. Memory is a powerful tool that can transform a piece of earth into a homeland and common objects into symbols. The authors of this volume show how memory is shaped and how it operates in uniting society and creating images that attain the value of truth even if they deviate from fact. They point to the relationship between this memory and our notion of "culture."" "They also discuss this cultural memory on the level of everyday life."--BOOK JACKET

13 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On Writing with Photography explores what happens to texts--and images--when they are brought together, addressing a wide range of genres and media, including graphic novels, children's books, photo-essays, films, diaries, newspapers, and art installations. Together, these essays help explain how writers and photographers--past and present--have served as powerful creative resources for each other."--Résumé de l'éditeur

Rückkehr in Feindesland? Fritz Bauer in der deutsch-jüdischen Nachkriegsgeschichte by Detlev Claussen( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hauptbeschreibung Als ""Feindesland"" soll Fritz Bauer die Welt außerhalb seines Büros bezeichnet haben. Der bedeutende Jurist und jüdische Remigrant hat im Nachkriegsdeutschland für seine Aufklärungsarbeit über die NS-Verbrechen sehr viel Ablehnung erfahren. Selten sind seine juristische Arbeit und sein politisches Handeln jedoch mit seiner jüdischen Biografie in Zusammenhang gebracht worden. Diese zeigt, dass es im Umfeld Bauers eine ganze Reihe jüdischer Juristen, Historiker und Vertreter von Interessenverbänden gab, die ihn unterstützten. Typisch für ihre und Fritz Bauers Situation in der
Affinität wider Willen? : Hannah Arendt, Theodor W. Adorno und die Frankfurter Schule by Liliane Weissberg( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hannah Arendt und Theodor W. Adorno verband eine gegenseitige Abneigung, die auch zu einer gegenseitigen Ablehnung ihrer Schriften führte. Arendts Animosität erstreckte sich bald auch auf andere Mitglieder der Frankfurter Schule. Der Band beleuchtet dieses schwierige Verhältnis, wobei die Autoren auch auf Affinitäten stoßen. Im Fokus stehen: Unterschiede und Gemeinsamkeiten der politisch-philosophischen Theorien und Begriffe, das Verständnis des Judentums und der Ursachen des Antisemitismus, die Bedeutung des Werkes von Walter Benjami

NS-Medizin und Öffentlichkeit Formen der Aufarbeitung nach 1945 by STEPHAN BRAESE; DOMINIK GRO( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Selbstaufklärung der bundesrepublikanischen Gesellschaft über die Geschichte der NS-Medizin stieß auf enorme Widerstände und Aporien. Dieses Buch zeigt auf, wie neben kritischen Ärzten und Medizinhistorikern auch zahlreiche Schriftsteller versuchten, die deutsche Öffentlichkeit über dieses dunkle Kapitel aufzuklären. Die Beiträge zeichnen die Jahrzehnte währenden Konflikte in Fachgesellschaften und Universitäten nach und illustrieren, wie seit den 1960er Jahren Autoren wie Rolf Hochhuth, Peter Weiss, Marcel Beyer und Hans-Ulrich Treichel NS-Medizinverbrechen und ihre Täter literarisch an den Pranger stellten
