Gustav Mahler’S Symphonies (Gustav Mahlers Sinfonien) By Paul Bekker (1921): A Translation With Commentary, Kelly Dean Hansen 2012 University of Colorado at Boulder

Gustav Mahler’S Symphonies (Gustav Mahlers Sinfonien) By Paul Bekker (1921): A Translation With Commentary, Kelly Dean Hansen

Musicology Graduate Theses & Dissertations

Gustav Mahlers Sinfonien by Paul Bekker was published in 1921, just ten years after the composer’s death. Bekker presents critical readings of all nine completed symphonies and Das Lied von der Erde. His “Symphonic Style” chapter sets the stage by considering Mahler’s place in the 19th-century symphonic tradition, which he traces from Beethoven through Schubert and Bruckner. A main concern in Bekker’s introductory chapter and throughout the book is the “finale problem” that had challenged composers ever since Beethoven’s Ninth. He also calls attention to the “dangerous power” of the Adagio as manifested in Bruckner’s ...

Conceptions Of Terror(Ism) And The “Other” During The Early Years Of The Red Army Faction, Alice Katherine Gates 2012 University of Colorado at Boulder

Conceptions Of Terror(Ism) And The “Other” During The Early Years Of The Red Army Faction, Alice Katherine Gates

Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures Graduate Theses & Dissertations

Although terrorism has existed for centuries, it continues to be extremely difficult to establish a comprehensive, cohesive definition - it is a monumental task that scholars, governments, and international organizations have yet to achieve. Integral to this concept is the variable and highly subjective distinction made by various parties between "good" and "evil," "right" and "wrong," "us" and "them." This thesis examines these concepts as they relate to the actions and manifestos of the Red Army Faction (die Rote Armee Fraktion) in 1970s Germany, and seeks to understand how its members became regarded as terrorists. While their writings called for an ...


How Should A Body Move: Turkish German Claims To Recognition In Architecture, Film, And Literature, Petra Landfester 2012 University of Colorado at Boulder

How Should A Body Move: Turkish German Claims To Recognition In Architecture, Film, And Literature, Petra Landfester

Comparative Literature Graduate Theses & Dissertations

The decades-long struggle to define German multicultural society takes place in relationship to state and popular assumptions about the nature of German and Western secularism. Expressions of this struggle include the "mosque debate," in which opponents sought to prevent new mosques in Germany, and discussions about offering Islam instruction in German schools along with Catholic and Protestant lessons. This dissertation addresses the role of the physical body in the recognition, or misrecognition, of "Others" as members of society. By utilizing theories of recognition as a starting point, it analyzes the embodied way in which people claim or grant recognition in ...


His Name Is Not Tadzio, Or Death In Marseilles: Anna Seghers’S Transit, Eckhard Rolz 2012 South Dakota State University

His Name Is Not Tadzio, Or Death In Marseilles: Anna Seghers’S Transit, Eckhard Rolz

Modern Languages and Global Studies Faculty Publications

Anna Seghers’s novel Transit was widely praised by critics, especially in the former German Democratic Republic. Heinrich Böll even regards it as the most beautiful novel Anna Seghers ever wrote. A close analysis of the text, however, reveals many lose ends, one-dimensional characters, stereotypical descriptions of people, and subjects who act irrationally and strange. It is a platform for preaching her political views intermixed with Greek Mythology and Christian imagery. In addition, she borrows heavily from Thomas Mann’s Death in Venice, but fails to reach the sophistication Mann’s novel exhibits.


German Dialects In The World Language Classroom, Rebecca Lynch Allison 2012 University of Colorado at Boulder

German Dialects In The World Language Classroom, Rebecca Lynch Allison

Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures Graduate Theses & Dissertations

World language teachers agree that students must be exposed to a variety of language variants and dialects in order to aid students in improving their language learning, increasing their ability to converse with native speakers, encouraging a global perspective, and gaining an understanding of a country, people, and culture. In this thesis I explain the rationale for teaching about dialects in a world language classroom, provide an overview of dialectology and sociolinguistics, present a concise history of German dialects, examine the research surrounding dialect education including the results of my survey of German teachers, and provide a detailed plan for ...


A New Frontier In The Eighteenth Century: Karl Philipp Moritz And The Exploration Of The Human Mind, Eckhard Rolz 2012 South Dakota State University

A New Frontier In The Eighteenth Century: Karl Philipp Moritz And The Exploration Of The Human Mind, Eckhard Rolz

Modern Languages and Global Studies Faculty Publications

The 18th century brought about a new and different interest in the workings of the human mind. Karl Philipp Moritz and others retrospectively examined their childhoods in order to recognize ailments of the soul or what we would call psychological disorders. Moritz believed that childhood holds the key to understanding the adult mind. In order to promote such introspection, Moritz published a psychological journal, ΓNΩΘI ΣAYTON oder Magazin zur Erfahrungsseelenkunde als ein Lesebuch für Gelehrte und Ungelehrte, from 1783 to 1793. He urged his readers to submit reports and anecdotes—essentially case studies— from their lives of unusual and out ...

The Negotiation Between Ethnicity And Language In German-Immigrant Hip-Hop, Brittney Teal-Cribbs 2012 Western Oregon University

The Negotiation Between Ethnicity And Language In German-Immigrant Hip-Hop, Brittney Teal-Cribbs

Student Theses, Papers and Projects (History)

Throughout Europe, hybrid youth cultures continue to form and morph as global migration creates minority enclaves in urban areas. Music plays a large part in the transformation of this culture for Germany's large Turkish population. Participation by both sides in the German hip-hop scene has created a type of transculturation in which aspects of both cultures are preserved. Hip-hop was first transformed in Germany by white artists whose lyrics more closely resembled traditional soft rock. Today, the immigrant populations have appropriated this uniquely German form of hip-hop to discuss deeper issues of race, poverty and violence that transcend racial ...

Racializing Islam: The Conceptualization Of Race, Religion And Culture In Contemporary German Society, Marni Elisabeth Spott 2012 University of Colorado at Boulder

Racializing Islam: The Conceptualization Of Race, Religion And Culture In Contemporary German Society, Marni Elisabeth Spott

Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures Graduate Theses & Dissertations

Since the implementation of the Guest Worker Program in the 1950s, Germany has struggled to accept that Turkish immigrants, along with subsequent generations, constitute a large part of its society. Thilo Sarrazin's book, Deutschland schafft sich ab, which has been at the center of public discourse in Germany since its publication in 2010, has exacerbated the debates surrounding the status of ethnic minorities in German society. His strong negative opinions of Islam and Muslims living in Germany have influenced the direction of religious discourse, within the context of racial and multicultural discourses. In determining Germany's own national culture ...


“Spielt Weiter, Spielt Doch Weiter!” Phantasien Zur Auseinandersetzung Mit Traumatischen Erlebnissen Am Beispiel Von Ilse Aichingers Die Größere Hoffnung, Katharina Carstens 2012 University of Colorado at Boulder

“Spielt Weiter, Spielt Doch Weiter!” Phantasien Zur Auseinandersetzung Mit Traumatischen Erlebnissen Am Beispiel Von Ilse Aichingers Die Größere Hoffnung, Katharina Carstens

Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures Graduate Theses & Dissertations

In ihrem Roman "Die größere Hoffnung", welcher im Jahr 1948 veröffentlicht wurde, beschreibt Ilse Aichinger die Kindheit und Jugend der halbjüdischen Protagonistin Ellen und ihrer jüdischen Freunde in Wien. Im Rahmen meiner Arbeit untersuche ich die Phantasien der Kinder innerhalb des Romans. Durch den phantasievollen Umgang mit traumatischen Ereignissen kreieren die Kinder ihre eigene Realität, die sich von der vorherrschenden, meist bedrohenden Umwelt unterscheidet. Die Phantasien spiegeln auf der einen Seite die Ängste der Kinder wider und helfen ihnen auf der anderen Seite mit diesen Gefühlen umzugehen und ihnen Ausdruck zu verleihen. Während in den Träumen die traumatischen Erlebnisse unbewusst ...
