Description

German studies scholars from various disciplines often use and reference ethnography, yet do not often present ethnography as a core methodology and research approach. Former Neighbors, Future Allies? emphasizes how German studies engages in methods and theories of ethnography. Through a variety of topics and from multiple perspectives including literature, folklore, history, sociology, and anthropology, this volume draws attention to how ethnography bridges transdisciplinary and international research in German studies.

A. Dana Weber is an Associate Professor of German in the Department of Modern Languages and Linguistics at Florida State University. She is the author of Blood Brothers and Peace Pipes: Performing the Wild West in German Festivals (Madison, WI: University of Wisconsin Press, 2019) and has edited the essay volume Performativity—Life, Stage Screen. Reflections on a Transdisciplinary Concept (Berlin: LIT Verlag, 2018). Her research and articles address interdisciplinary topics in literature, film, performance, and folklore studies. She is currently working on a project about blood brotherhood in modern German literature and film.
