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

13 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 731 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
Rahel Varnhagen : the life of a Jewess by Hannah Arendt( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"She was, Hannah Arendt wrote, "my closest friend, though she has been dead for some hundred years." Born in Berlin in 1771 as the daughter of a Jewish merchant, Rahel Varnhagen would come to host one of the most prominent salons of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Arendt discovered her writings some time in the mid-1920s and soon began to reimagine Rahel's inner life and write her biography. Long unavailable and never before published as Arendt intended, Rahel Varnhagen: The Life of a Jewess returns to print in an extraordinary new edition." "For this first complete and critical edition of the book in any language, Liliane Weissberg reconstructs the notes Arendt planned for Rahel Varnhagen but never fully executed. She reveals the full extent to which Arendt wove the biography largely from the words of Rahel and her contemporaries. In her extended introduction, Weissberg reflects on Rahel's writings, on Arendt's reading of Rahel's work and life, and on the importance of this text in the development of Arendt's political theory. But the book was important to its author in other ways as well, Weissberg reveals, as she uncovers the hidden story of how Arendt manipulated documents relating to Rahel Varnhagen to claim for herself a university position and reparation payments from the postwar German state."--BOOK JACKET
Cultural memory and the construction of identity( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 326 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
On writing with photography by Liliane Weissberg( Book )

13 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 247 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."--Publisher's website

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

3 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 49 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 )

7 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 40 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( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 18 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

Writing Jewish culture : paradoxes in ethnography( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on Eastern and Central Europe before WWII, this collection explores various genres of "ethnoliterature" across temporal, geographical, and ideological borders as sites of Jewish identity formation and dissemination. Challenging the assumption of cultural uniformity among Ashkenazi Jews, the contributors consider how ethnographic literature defines Jews and Jewishness, the political context of Jewish ethnography, and the question of audience, readers, and listeners. With contributions from leading scholars and an appendix of translated historical ethnographies, this volume presents vivid case studies across linguistic and disciplinary divides, revealing a rich textual history that throws the complexity and diversity of a people into sharp relief.---publisher website
