Since the 1990s there has been a dramatic shift in the research on culture in general away from the strict focus on high arts and literature to everyday popular culture. A younger generation of scholars now takes the broad view of culture as not ...
merely the work of elite artists and intellectuals, but as constructed in everyday practice and thorough popular participation. Weimar Culture Revisited is the first book to offer an accessible cross-section of these "new cultural history" approaches to the Weimar Republic. This collection of pieces by historians, literary and films scholars, and art historians focuses on the everyday workings of Weimar culture. It provides a variety of interdisciplinary approaches explaining the impact and meaning of culture for German's everyday lives during this fateful era.
