Title: Ossi Wessi
Edited By: Donald Backman

Description:

Ossi Wessi includes the proceedings of the fourteenth annual
Interdisciplinary German Studies Conference at the University of
California, Berkeley (2006), which explored issues surrounding the Berlin
Wall, both pre- and post-reunification, in language, literature, and visual
media. The collected articles discuss the situation of the Berlin Wall,
describing its portrayal as both a dividing and uniting boundary, and often
discussing the continued existence of the Wall in the minds of Germany’s
citizens. The multi-disciplinary range of approaches contained in this
volume reveals how diverse the portrayals of the history of the Wall have
been, as well as how controversial the division of Germany remains today.
Topics covered in this collection include Wende Literature and film,
linguistic changes and attitudes since 1989, the complicated history of the
Neo-Nazis, and the visual arts. Although Ossi Wessi is by no means a
comprehensive reference work, each of its essays serve as a though
provoking springboard for further research.
