A history of the case study : sexology, psychoanalysis, literature by Birgit Lang( )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection tells the story of the case study genre at a time when it became the genre par excellence for discussing human sexuality across the humanities and life sciences. It is a transcontinental journey from the imperial world of fin-de-siecle Central Europe to the interwar metropolises of Weimar Germany and to the United States of America in the post-war years. Foregrounding the figures of case study pioneers, and highlighting their often radical engagements with the genre, the book scrutinises the case writing practices of Sigmund Freud and his predecessor sexologist Richard von Krafft-Ebing; writers including Leopold von Sacher-Masoch and Alfred Doblin; Weimar intellectuals such as Erich Wulffen and psychoanalyst Viola Bernard. The results are important new insights into the continuing legacy of such writers and into the agency increasingly claimed by the readerships that emerged with the development of modernity
Secret police files from the Eastern bloc : between surveillance and life writing by Valentina Glajar( )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The communist secret police services of Central and Eastern Europe kept detailed records not only of their victims but also of the vast networks of informants and collaborators upon whom their totalitarian systems depended. These records, now open to the public in many former Eastern Bloc countries, reflect a textually mediated reality that has defined and shaped the lives of former victims and informers, creating a tension between official records and personal memories. Exploring this tension between a textually and technically mediated past and the subject/victim's reclaiming and retrospective interpretation of that past in biography is the goal of this volume. While victims' secret police files have often been examined as a type of unauthorized archival life writing, the contributors to this volume are among the first to analyze the fragmentary and sometimes remedial nature of these biographies and to examine the subject/victims' rewriting and remediation of them in various creative forms. Essays focus, variously, on the files of the East German Stasi, the Romanian Securitate (in relation to Transylvanian Germans in Romania), and the Hungarian State Security Agency

7 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kein anderes Bild hat das Denken in der Zeit nach dem Mauerfall so eindringlich geprägt wie die Vorstellung von der Wende als Ehe. In zahlreichen Liebesgeschichten und Eheromanen von Autoren aus Ost und West wird Zeitgeschichte über die Metapher der Ehe und das Motiv des Paars - seine Bildung wie sein Scheitern - reflektiert und modelliert. Dies ermöglicht gleichzeitig ein Nachdenken über die Zukunft der Geschlechter wie auch der Nation, wobei sich die Wiedervereinigung vor allem als" schwierige Ehe"entpuppt
