Abstract

"Terrorism. 9/11 in Context" is an anthology of thematic priorities that aims to establish a better understanding of the complexities of terrorism aside from one-dimensional characterisations in media and politics. The main focal points are: The definition of terrorism, its causes, mythological charging and pop cultural realization. Reactions of the state towards the terrorist challenge - the political, military and security aspects as well as media counter strategies - are also of keen interest. Further, as case-studies from the US, Latin America and Europe clearly demonstrate the state can also be a perpetrator of terrorism, either during covert operations or by adopting the mirror image of guerrillas and terrorists in counter insurgency warfare. The main thread of "Terrorism. 9/11 in Context" is the analysis of the "superstructure"- the symbolic and ideological sources of terrorism. Terrorist violence is seen as commitment for radical political change, which is fuelled not only by political and social grievances, but also by the gratification of a radical-action identity. Thus, terrorism is most of all the product of a powerful idea, which motivates and stimulates activists, giving them the strong conviction needed to follow through their "project". It's the idea that not only is it possible to wage resistance against an alleged illegitimate, corrupt authority; it is also possible to inspire others to participate in an avant-garde armed struggle. On the other hand, the perspective of politicians and authorities on the terrorist enemy is also influenced to a certain degree by imagination and projection - this process is analysed through the depiction of terrorism in cinema, media and the imitation of terrorist tactics by counter terrorism forces.

Abstract

Las últimas décadas del siglo XX corresponden a lo que Huntington definió como la «tercera ola» de democratización, que comienza en el sur de Europa en la década de los 70, continúa con los países latinoamericanos en los años 80 y en los del este europeo post-comunista en los años 90. Entre las cuestiones generadas por el surgimiento de estas democracias, el problema de la gestión de la violencia pasada (la de la dictadura), presente (la de la transición) y futura (la de la democracia restaur...

Abstract

Filme über den Holocaust führen nach wie vor zu kontroversen Diskussionen, insbesondere über die Art ihres Umgangs mit der Shoah. Abgesehen von wenigen Ausnahmen besteht die filmwissenschaftliche Literatur zum Thema Holocaust im Film jedoch aus Beiträgen zu einzelnen Filmen ohne übergreifende Fragestellung. Schwerpunkt dieser Studie ist daher eine Typologie, welche die Wirkung dieser Filme auf den Zuschauer analysiert - unter Berücksichtigung der besonderen Ästhetik und der damit einhergehenden spezifischen Wahrnehmungsangebote. Die analysierten Filme - darunter u.a. »Nacht und Nebel«, »Schindlers Liste«, »Das Leben ist schön«, »Zug des Lebens« und »Birkenau und Rosenfeld« - stellen gleichzeitig einen Aufriss der filmischen Auseinandersetzung mit der Shoah seit 1945 dar.
