Brecht, Protest, Youth

Bertolt Brecht had one eye on the future, another fixed on the past. His work aimed not only to come to terms with contemporary events but also to expose social and historical causes of conflict and crisis. This was the case in East Germany (reactions to the Prague Spring), West Germany (the 1968 student movement), and in Latin America (Paolo Freire’s and Augusto Boal’s focus on the oppressed). What about today? Is Brecht still timely after the Arab Spring, Occupy Wall Street, the Great Recession, and the rupture of global free market economies? What can we learn from Brecht’s theories and representations of protest and criticism? Of particular interest are the ways in which protest movements and younger generations have engaged with and/or critiqued Brecht’s work.

This panel seeks submissions from a wide range of topics related to Brecht, protest, and youth culture, including but not limited to:

--Themes of protest and/or revolution
--Representations of opposition
--Juxtapositions and contradictions between theory/practice, complicity/action
--Theories of “experiment” (Versuche) as critique and/or resistance
--Brecht’s (ir)relevance for today’s popular youth movements and/or protest cultures
--The importance of youth, children, and future generations for creating a new social system (i.e., GDR politics, FDJ, Junge Pioniere)
--Individual works by Brecht or genres (essays, plays, journals, prose, songs, film, etc.)
