Gay Identity In The Gdr: The Homosexuelle Interessengemeinschaft Berlin Between Self-Expression And State Control, Susanna Cassisa

Honors Theses

This thesis examines the Homosexuelle Interessengemeinschaft Berlin (HIB), the

first gay liberation group in the German Democratic Republic (GDR). Specifically, it analyzes the demands and tactics of the HIB alongside London Gay Liberation Front activist Peter Tatchell at the tenth World Festival of Youth and Students (WFYS) in 1973. This study analyzes four primary sources: 1) the HIB’s banner from the WFYS, 2) the leaflet Tatchell distributed at the WFYS, 3) Tatchell’s placard from the WFYS, and 4) a 1978 letter from the HIB to the People’s Chamber arguing for a socialist information center geared toward a ...


Understanding German-Turkish Identity In The Context Of Deutschrap, Alena Tien Vu 2021 University of Mississippi

Understanding German-Turkish Identity In The Context Of Deutschrap, Alena Tien Vu

Honors Theses

Since its emergence in the 1980s, Deutschrap has been used by German-Turkish rap artists as a medium to reflect their views and identity. What is understood as the German-Turkish identity has been put up for debate as to whether it can be labeled as assimilated, integrated or something else entirely. By doing a close reading and analysis of three songs each from German-Turkish rap artists Alpa Gun, Eko Fresh and Mert, it is found that these three artists can be categorized as Ayhan Kaya’s hybrid-, boundaries-, and flows- transmigrant identity, respectively. This also shows that the German-Turkish identity is ...


Mehr Als Ein Spiel: Far-Left And Far-Right Football Subcultures In Germany, Daisy Garner 2021 William & Mary

Mehr Als Ein Spiel: Far-Left And Far-Right Football Subcultures In Germany, Daisy Garner

Undergraduate Honors Theses

This thesis analyzes Germany’s far-left and far-right football subcultures and how their expressions are shaped by Germany’s laws, policies, and social taboos. After World War II, Germany’s efforts to overcome or to work through its history of political extremism and authoritarian governments (Vergangenheitsbewältigung/Vergangenheitsaufarbeitung) has resulted in laws and policies intended to restore Germany’s national image, protect democratic institutions, and prevent another mass atrocity like the Holocaust. These laws are against political extremism as a whole, including left-wing political extremism, but many of these laws are aimed at restricting far-right political extremism de jure because they ...


Critical Spectatorship? Theater In The Age Of A Pandemic, Rebecca Vernachio 2021 Susquehanna University

Critical Spectatorship? Theater In The Age Of A Pandemic, Rebecca Vernachio

Senior Scholars Day

How can a diverse theater where critical spectators disagree advance ethics? What is the precise nature and function of an ethical dilemma? What is the pedagogical impact of dilemmas replacing the dead end of imposed solutions toward happy endings? How can we promote critical spectatorship under almost exclusively virtual circumstances? What can online performance as part of an ethically informed theatrical vision achieve in the realms of community and leadership? These are the main questions this project pursues. Through discussions with SU students and alumni, this project sets out to understand how possible answers to these questions have impacted the ...


The Ever-Accessible Evergreen: Ernst Jandl’S Poetry From Every Conceivable Angle (Essay Originally Written In German As "Das Immer-Zugängliche Immergrün: Ernst Jandls Dichtkunst Aus Jedem Denkbaren Blickwinkel"), Amanda Gillette 2021 Susquehanna University

The Ever-Accessible Evergreen: Ernst Jandl’S Poetry From Every Conceivable Angle (Essay Originally Written In German As "Das Immer-Zugängliche Immergrün: Ernst Jandls Dichtkunst Aus Jedem Denkbaren Blickwinkel"), Amanda Gillette

Senior Scholars Day

In the 75 years of his life, experimental poet Ernst Jandl became a successful and critically acclaimed author in both Austria and Germany. Jandl was famous for his experiments with language and convention in the form of sound poems and visual poems (known as concrete poetry), and particularly for his political poetry. For a poet who published more than thirty collections over a period of 35 years, it stands to reason that Jandl's poems can be analyzed from different perspectives, so today, literary critics and analysts interpret Jandl’s poetry through a multitude of lenses. However, most who examine ...

Auf Dem Weg Zum Cyberpunk (On The Way To Cyberpunk), Yuzhou Sun 2021 Trinity College

Auf Dem Weg Zum Cyberpunk (On The Way To Cyberpunk), Yuzhou Sun

Senior Theses and Projects

"Cyberpunk" is a word that is both familiar and unfamiliar to us. In some ways, it is familiar to us. As a sub-genre of science fiction, Cyberpunk is a popular futuristic theme that greatly influenced pop culture in the 21st century. We are fascinated by the bizarre but realistic fictional world, a dystopian society characteristic of "high tech and low life" for the majority population, it presents. In most works of this genre, an overwhelming technology company monopolies most social resources and dominates society like a "leviathan". The majority population is alienated from the well-being brought by high technology ...

“Don’T Confuse Patriotism With Nationalism”: A Literature Review And An Analysis Of Two Domains Of Post-Wwii Nationalism In Germany, Ashton Krueger

Honors Theses, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

This thesis includes a literature review that is an examination of nationalism and patriotism as psychological constructs as well as an analysis of two post-World War II domains of nationalism in Germany. In the psychological literature, there is a very important distinction to be made between the concepts of nationalism and patriotism. As nationalism and patriotism remain relevant areas of study by scholars due to more global citizens than ever before, it is vital to understand the distinction between the two. The goal of the literature review is to demonstrate how nationalism and patriotism differ substantially, how patriotism also takes ...
