The Strange Career Of The Biblia Rabbinica Among Christian Hebraists, 1517–1620, Stephen G. Burnett 2012 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

The Strange Career Of The Biblia Rabbinica Among Christian Hebraists, 1517–1620, Stephen G. Burnett

Faculty Publications, Classics and Religious Studies Department

The Rabbinic Bible became a standard reference tool, above all for Protestant Hebraists during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. It contained not only the Hebrew Bible text, but also Aramaic-language Targums (periphrastic translations of the biblical text, mostly dating from before 500) and Jewish biblical commentaries written between ca. 1100 and 1500. To use these works required that a Christian Hebraist know not only the language of the Bible, but also Targumic Aramaic and medieval Hebrew, which was rather different from biblical or mishnaic Hebrew. For Christian scholars who mastered these languages and were able to read these different texts ...


Geworfenheit Und Prometheische Scham Im Zeitalter Der Transhumanen Kybernetik Technik Und Machenschaft Bei Martin Heidegger, Fritz Lang Und Günther Anders, Babette Babich 2012 Fordham University

Geworfenheit Und Prometheische Scham Im Zeitalter Der Transhumanen Kybernetik Technik Und Machenschaft Bei Martin Heidegger, Fritz Lang Und Günther Anders, Babette Babich

Articles and Chapters in Academic Book Collections

Untersucht werden soll hier die Wirkung Heideggers auf Günther Anders. Dabei spiegelt Anders eine ganze Etappe Wirkungsgeschichte, denn er war Schüler von Husserl sowie von Paul Tillich – und zudem, vielleicht am wichtigsten, weil diese Beziehung die schwierigste ist, auch von Theodor W. Adorno.2 Günther Anders, der damals noch Günther Stern hieß, könnte eigentlich als eine Art Verkörperung der Phänomenologie gelten, war doch gerade er sowohl hermeneutisch geschult als auch ein früher Anhänger der Frankfurter Schule – als beide noch in anfänglichem Glanz und Fülle strahlten. Eigentlich aber reden wir gar nicht über Heidegger und seine Schüler, außer in der Hinsicht ...

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 ...


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 ...

Serdar Somuncu: Reframing Integration Through A Transnational Politics Of Satire, Kathrin M. Bower 2012 University of Richmond

Serdar Somuncu: Reframing Integration Through A Transnational Politics Of Satire, Kathrin M. Bower

Languages, Literatures, and Cultures Faculty Publications

Founded by Şinasi Dikmen and Muhsin Omurcu in Ulm in 1985, Knobi-Bonbon is widely recognized as the first Turkish German cabaret in the Federal Republic. Dikmen and Omurcu focused on ethnic stereotypes, integration, and coexistence in their early programs, with an emphasis on the German misunderstanding of integration as cultural assimilation (Boran 202, 219). With a run of successful performances, Knobi-Bonbon established a momentum that has carried through to the present day, making Turkish German comedy a fixture on the German stage. Responding to the wave of nationalism and xenophobia that followed in the wake of unification, Knobi-Bonbon’s shows ...


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 ...


“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 ...


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 ...

Metaphysical Organs from Leibniz to Marx

Leif Weatherby

Catriona MacLeod, supervisor

This dissertation locates and treats the Early German Romantic project of finding or creating an "organ" for metaphysics. The Romantics derived their sense of Organ from a spectrum of meanings and etymological developments of the Greek organon, "instrument." Simultaneously physiological and metaphysical, what I call Romantic organology was meant to bridge the critical gap between thought and being, and to provide a transition from the speculative to the political. What resulted was a kind of technological imagination forming a major moment in modern metaphysics.

The term Organ had conceptual ...

The Tales Of The Grimm Brothers In Colombia: Introduction, Dissemination, And Reception, Alexandra Michaelis-Vultorius 2012 Wayne State University

The Tales Of The Grimm Brothers In Colombia: Introduction, Dissemination, And Reception, Alexandra Michaelis-Vultorius

Wayne State University Dissertations

The Grimms' Kinder- und Hausmärchen or Children's and Household Tales are probably the best-known written collection of folk tales worldwide. The reception of the stories, however, varies greatly both at an individual and at a collective level. Several studies have examined the reception of the tales in Europe, Asia, and North America, but so far no broad-based study exists for Latin America. This dissertation fills this gap by examining the introduction, propagation, translations, and reception of the Grimm tales in Colombia.

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

School of American and Global Studies Faculty Publications with a focus on Modern Languages and Gloabal Studies

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 ...


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

School of American and Global Studies Faculty Publications with a focus on Modern Languages and Gloabal Studies

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.
