Gender and Sexuality in Contemporary Literature and Film
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.
