Sounds German expands the perspective through its case studies and enriches the discourse with its background in German and cultural studies, in addition to providing a transatlantic perspective.” • Popular Music History

Description

For decades, Germany has been shaped and reshaped by the sounds of popular music—whether viewed as uniquely German or an ideological invader from abroad. This collected volume brings together leading figures in the field of German Studies, popular music studies, and cultural studies at large to survey the sociopolitical impact of music on conceptions of the German state and national identity, gender and sexuality, and transnational cultural production and consumption, expanding on the ways in which sounds, technologies, media practices, and exchanges of popular music provide a unique glimpse into the cultural dynamics of postwar Germany.

Kirkland A. Fulk is an assistant professor in the Department of Germanic Studies at the University of Texas at Austin. He has published on topics such as photography and postcolonialism, neoliberalism and neocolonialism, West German science fiction, and German-American transnational musical exchanges.
