Book Description

From Weimar to Christiania is a new compilation of graduate student work in the fields of German and Scandinavian Studies. Resulting from research presented at a unique graduate student conference at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, these essays utilize a wide variety of disciplinary approaches and represent an ambitious and successful effort to connect related yet distinct fields.
This anthology is aimed at scholars within the broad areas of German and Scandinavian Studies. All of the contributions speak to an appreciation of cultural studies as a diverse collection of theoretical tools, which provide the historian, political scientist, and literary and film scholars gathered here with the means to contextualize and investigate cultural productions, situations, and environments. From Weimar to Christiania delivers compelling research that expands bodies of knowledge in northern European studies.

Florence’s research interests in twentieth- and twenty-first-century German literature and culture include contemporary German author, musician and disc jockey Thomas Meinecke, the alleged literary Fräuleinwunder and the enigmatic use of photographs in W.G. Sebald’s works. Kyle focuses on German, Swedish, and Finnish cultural productions. In his dissertation, he explores gender, sexuality and uses of time, space, and body in boarding school narratives.
