Although German studies scholars from various disciplines often use and reference ethnography, German studies rarely emphasizes ethnography as a core methodology and research approach. Through recent dialogue among Germanists, Former Neighbors, Future Allies shows the necessity of assessing the growing momentum in German studies for engaging in methods and theories of ethnography from a variety of perspectives including literature, folklore, history, sociology, and anthropology. By increasing the visibility of the pervasiveness of ethnography, this multi-modal volume illustrates how ethnography represents a transdisciplinary and international bridging of research.

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.
