>
>Gender and sexuality are a prevalent theme in contemporary German
>literature and film, and they address a number of different issues.
>Sexual violence is frequently used as a metaphor for
>East-West-relationships; the relationship between Germans and Jews
>is often explored through German-Jewish romances; hyper-masculinity
>is a feature of some German-Turkish texts; and the New Berlin is
>described as a gendered geography. This panel seeks contributions
>that question and analyze these and other cultural constructions of
>gender and sexuality in literature and film of the last decade.
>Papers should reflect on the critical potential of feminist theory
>in responding to what are in many ways post-feminist texts.
