A Different Germany

Pop and the Negotiation of German Culture

Editor(s): Claude Desmarais
Contributors: Margaretmary Daley, Morgan Koerner, Ute Lischke, Britta Kallin, Florence Feiereisen, Gerd Bayer, Enno Lohmeyer,

Book Description

A Different Germany looks at German film, popular literature, theatre, garden culture, and other manifestations of popular culture as examples of how Germans and people of German-Turkish descent, women and culture writ large are thriving in a Germany that is, for all of the struggles this entails, already a country of great diversity. Germany, the authors argue in their own particular contexts, is much more than the few tropes that circulate through the Cold War lens in much of the English-speaking world.
