Abstract

Europa ist in den vergangenen Jahren zu einem dominierenden Thema geworden. Verantwortlich dafür ist vor allem der Prozess der europäischen Einigung, der zunächst wirtschaftlich, zunehmend aber auch politisch gesehen wurde. Ein kulturell fundiertes Europa-Verständnis hingegen wird zwar rhetorisch immer wieder ins Spiel gebracht, bleibt aber eigenartig unscharf. Dieser Band bringt politische, historische und kulturelle Aspekte des modernen Europas zusammen und trägt so zu einem ganzheitlicheren Bild bei. Sein Titel spielt bewusst mit der Mehrdeutigkeit des Begriffspaars "Fiktion" und "Realität": Auf der einen Seite kann literarische Fiktion eng mit politischer Realität bzw. Realitätsdarstellung verbunden sein, andererseits ist "Realpolitik" oft mit "Fiktion" - Mythen, Stereotypen, Traditionen - durchsetzt.

Abstract

By using history and theory of communication as an integrative methodological device, this book reaches out to those properties of totalitarian society which appear to be beyond the grasp of specific disciplines. Furthermore, this functional approach allows to extend the analysis of communicative practices commonly associated with fascist Italy, Nazi Germany and Soviet Union, to other locations (France, United States of America and Great Britain in the 1930s) or historical contexts (post-Soviet developments in Russia or Kyrgyzstan). This, in turn, leads to the revaluation of the very term »totalitarian«: no longer an ideological label or a stock attribute of historical narration, it gets a life of its own, defining a specific constellation of hierarchies, codes and networks within a given society.

Abstract

World War I marks a well-known turning point in anthropology, and this volume is the first to examine the variety of forms it took in Europe. Distinct national traditions emerged and institutes were founded, partly due to collaborations with the military. Researchers in the cultural sciences used war zones to gain access to »informants«: prisoner-of-war and refugee camps, occupied territories, even the front lines. Anthropologists tailored their inquiries to aid the war effort, contributed to interpretations of the war as a »struggle« between »races«, and assessed the »warlike« nature of the Balkan region, whose crises were key to the outbreak of the Great War.
