Cosmopolitan Screen

German Cinema and the Global Imaginary, 1945 to the Present

Stephan K. Schindler (Redaktør) ; Lutz Koepnick (Redaktør)

«Schindler and Koepnick's formulation of the 'cosmopolitan gaze' as a vehicle for the constitution of a post-national German film studies is both cogent and charged with fruitful possibilities for future work in the field. The admirable mix of lucidity and critical sophistication which this array of scholars bring to their subject will make The Cosmopolitan Screen essential reading for students, scholars, and researchers. - Erica Carter, Professor and Chair of German Studies, University of Warwick»

The Cosmopolitan Screen investigates the extent to which German filmmakers throughout the last sixty years have engaged with the ever more fluid trade of images, meanings, and identities in a globalizing world. Les mer

The Cosmopolitan Screen investigates the extent to which German filmmakers throughout the last sixty years have engaged with the ever more fluid trade of images, meanings, and identities in a globalizing world. The volume traces German cinema's negotiation of the global as a multilayered story in which hopes and fears about the prospect of a more cosmopolitan culture often go hand in hand. Featuring original work from some of the foremost scholars in German film studies from either side of the Atlantic, ""The Cosmopolitan Screen"" makes a persuasive case for rethinking the place of the ""national"" within an increasingly cosmopolitan and global economy of images and sounds. The book will attract those interested in film studies, cultural studies, media studies, visual culture, and German and European history.
