Abstract

Between the world wars, Robert Musil and Hermann Broch replied to an era of catastrophes, which they brought close to their bodies with their protagonists, who were entangled in ideological salvation hopes: a pathogenesis of the bourgeois world for the 1930s. The fact that after 1933 they took their contemporaries' longing for a "world view" more and more seriously has often irritated the newborn. However, her »2nd order world view novel«, which is being unfolded here for the first time, still testifies to the enormous historical project of engaging with the language of the time and tracking down its most fatal tendencies with literary empathy and critical distance.

Abstract

At present, Macedonia is again increasingly present in the German-speaking media discourse, in particular due to the so-called "name dispute" with Greece. But what is it when we talk about Macedonia? The media representation of the region often remains diffuse and is strongly influenced by stereotypes. In his comprehensive analysis, Benjamin Langer shows for the first time how this south-eastern European region was shaped in German-language texts from a terra incognita on the periphery of Europe and provided with attributions. In ten thematic chapters, he shows how powerful these images are despite their contradictions and changing instrumentalization to this day.
