TitelMasculinities and German Culture
BeschreibungDear colleagues

In Autumn 2007 the first issue of the Edinburgh German Yearbook, an international journal published by Camden House, appears under the title 'Cultural Exchange in German Literature' (editors: Eleoma Joshua and Robert Vilain).

In 2008 we shall be editing the second issue, with the key theme

'Masculinities and German Culture'

We are looking to examine the meanings and significance of masculinity and/or the masculine, as problem or ideal (or indeed both), in German culture; the history, influence, and reception of the idea. Possible topics might include, but are not restricted to:

Masculinity and medieval Minne; Luther and Reformation masculinity; Amazons and warrior women; Men and the Thirty Years War; German men and World War 1/ World War 2; 18th-century philanthropic pedagogy and gender; sexology and the masculine; The discursive effeminization of 'the Jew'; The Nazi masculinization of society; Fatherland or mother country?; Männerphantasien; 1968 and beyond: the 'new man'; Die Männer der RAF: men and the revolution/ masculinity and terrorism; Men and mothering; The masculine and the media.

Publication will be Sept/Oct 2008, so the deadline for finished contributions would be 30 January 2008. Essays may be in English or German. Abtracts for proposed contributions should be submitted by email to both the editors as soon as possible:
