Abstract

"Metropolis Berlin: 1880-1940 reconstitutes the built environment of Berlin during the period of its classical modernity using over two hundred contemporary texts, virtually all of which are published in English translation for the first time. They are from the pens of those who created Berlin as one of the world's great cities and those who observed this process: architects, city planners, sociologists, political theorists, historians, cultural critics, novelists, essayists, and journalists. Divided into nineteen sections, each prefaced by an introductory essay, the account unfolds chronologically, with the particular structural concerns of the moment addressed in sequence--be they department stores in 1900, housing in the 1920s, or parade grounds in 1940. Metropolis Berlin: 1880-1940 not only details the construction of Berlin, but explores homes and workplaces, public spaces, circulation, commerce, and leisure in the German metropolis as seen through the eyes of all social classes, from the humblest inhabitants of the city slums, to the great visionaries of the modern city, and the demented dictator resolved to remodel Berlin as Germania"--

Abstract

This volume deals with the intellectual Huguenot Refuge (ca 1680–1780), discussing its philosophical, theological, historical, and literary aspects in European context. It uses Berlin as its regional point of departure: In the French-Protestant community of Berlin, the erudites rapidly established networks which pursued a very wide range of interest, communicating with every Protestant scholar who might contribute to the dissemination of Enlightened thought. The first part of the book, therefore, introduces the biggest and most complex centre of the Refuge in Germany. Whereas the second and third part examine different fields of knowledge, the fourth focusses on the topic of dissemination. All contributions present new material–be it on 'Huguenot' hermeneutics, journalism, history, or on the relationship between Berlin and the United Provinces. Contributors include: Lutz Danneberg, Joris van Eijnatten, Herbert Jaumann, John Christian Laursen, Fabrizio Lomonaco, Martin Mulsow, Fiammetta Palladini, Sandra Pott, and Annett Volmer.

Abstract

Of all European cities, Americans today are perhaps most curious about Berlin, whose position in the American imagination is an essential component of nineteenth-century, postwar and contemporary transatlantic imagology. Over various periods, Berlin has been a tenuous space for American claims to cultural heritage and to real geographic space in Europe, symbolizing the ultimate evil and the power of redemption. This volume offers a comprehensive examination of the city’s image in American literature from 1840 to the present. Tracing both a history of Berlin and of American culture through the ways the city has been narrated across three centuries by some 100 authors through 145 novels, short stories, plays and poems, Tales of Berlin presents a composite landscape not only of the German capital, but of shifting subtexts in American society which have contextualized its meaning for Americans in the past, and continue to do so today.

Abstract

This text examines city building in East Berlin from the end of World War II on May 8, 1945, until the construction of the Berlin Wall on August 13, 1961 - a period of great interest in reshaping the city to express new political ideals. It examines how key decision-makers were influenced by their worldview and political ideology; beliefs about the relationship between urban form and society including formal theories; political strategizing at municipal, national, and international levels; and assessments concerning the deployment of limited resources. The work emphasizes how extant discourses acted as 'pathways of memory,' shaping the way key actors attributed meaning to different elements of the urban landscape.

Abstract

Die Autorin führt uns in das Milieu des Berliner Refuge Ende des 17. Jahrhunderts, in dem der junge Barbeyrac lebte und des Socinianismus angeklagt wurde. Sie zeigt, mit welcher Heftigkeit theologische Fragen diskutiert wurden, besonders Bibel-Übersetzungen, wie die von Leclerc oder Lenfant. Das Buch berichtigt unsere einseitigen Vorstellungen vom Werdegang eines der Helden der Frühaufklärung, indem es seine Gegner vorstellt, die keines- wegs Dunkelmänner waren, sondern Gelehrte von Format, die den Diskussionsstand der Zeit in Theologie und Philosophie souverän überblickten. Diese Untersuchung, die auf gründlichem Studium der archivalischen Quellen beruht, bietet vielfältige Einblicke in das Leben der Hugenotten: Beziehungen zur deutschen Obrigkeit, Intrigen, europäische Netzwerke, persönliche Beziehungen und Alltagsprobleme. Sie korrigiert und bereichert so unser Bild von der hugenottischen Aufklärung. This study offers a thorough, archive-based account of the Berlin Huguenot Refuge during the late seventeenth century, and of the intellectual milieu of the young Jean Barbeyrac, the great eighteenth-century translator and disseminator of natural law. It not only examines Barbeyrac’s relation to Socinianism and other theological debates, including those over Bible translations such as those of Leclerc and Lenfant, but also complements its master narrative with a portrayal of the alleged ‘losers’ in these debates, restoring the dignity of the ‘orthodox’ Gaultiers and Fetizons among others. It thereby corrects over-simplified, whiggish views of one of modern natural law theory’s heroes, and of so-called modernity itself. By utilizing much new material from the archives and expanding access to the interlaced realities of Huguenot learning, cultural patronage, political cabals, theological disputes, and scholarly networks, the book will change the way in which we view the early Huguenot enlightenment and its wider European counterpart.
