TitelRepresentations of Women and Death in German Literature, Art and Media after 1500 (Oxford University)
Beschreibung"Attitudes to women dying, killing and fighting, as represented in German literature and art, are at the centre of this three-year research project, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Women who kill, fight, or die are objects of fascination in western culture and frequently represented in literature, art and media. Under the supervision of Professor Helen Watanabe-O’Kelly (Oxford) and Professor Sarah Colvin (Edinburgh), this project will provide a pathbreaking cultural history of these representations in the German-speaking world using examples from the Renaissance to the present day. The project began on 1 July 2005 (...). This project considers it essential to examine representations of female victims and killers as two sides of the same coin, to understand the intellectual and artistic models laid down in the Renaissance and the Reformation, and to proceed in a systematic manner, focusing on the German-speaking world.

The German-speaking territories are particularly significant because of their unique political and confessional diversity and because of the enormous influence the German-speaking world has exerted in the West since the Renaissance through its contributions to the development of theology, philosophy, medicine and psychology. An understanding of these theoretical disciplines underpins the work of the project as a whole."
