We seek contributions for an anthology that will examine from a variety of perspectives the various dialogues on Berlin that have grown out of the historical events since 1989. In addition to contributions on literature and film, we welcome contributions on art, media and journalism, music, architecture, urban studies, history and political science.
The sudden fall of the Berlin Wall is one of the defining images of the late twentieth century. The subsequent unification of Germany and the decision to return Berlin to its status as capital has made the transformations within the city a matter of public interest. In the media, Berlin is portrayed not as a city that is, but as city that is always “becoming.” More than 10 years beyond unification is an appropriate time to explore the image that the “new Berlin” has tried to project for itself, the debates that helped define this image, and the ways that literature and the other arts have responded to the city’s ever-changing image.
Interested parties should send a 2-page abstract to all three editors via e-mail only by January 1, 2002. The editors will make their decisions by April 30, 2002. Completed manuscripts will be due by October 15, 2002.
