Christina Gerhardt on her new book: Screening the Red Army Faction: Historical and Cultural Memory
August 1 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Screening the Red Army Faction explores representations of the Red Army Faction (RAF) in print media, film and art. The book contributes both a new history and a new cultural history of post-fascist era West Germany that grapples with the fledging republic’s most pivotal debates about the nature of democracy and authority; about violence, its motivations and regulation; and about its cultural afterlife.
Christina Gerhardt is Associate Professor of German at University of Hawai’i at Manoa.
