John Urang Published in Journal

Culture & media faculty John Urang published an article titled Solitary Confinement: Reproduction and the Law in Kluge's Abschied von gestern in the fall 2013 issue of New German Critique.

Abstract

This reading of Alexander Kluge's Abschied von gestern (Anita G.) (Yesterday Girl, 1966) highlights the central themes of pregnancy and childbirth in the film. Through Hannah Arendt's concept of natality, Urang suggests points of connection between the film's scenario of biological reproduction and Kluge's ongoing exploration of the conditions of cultural reproduction in the Federal Republic of Germany.

New German Critique is an interdisciplinary journal that focuses on 20th and 21st century German studies and publishes on a wide array of subjects, including literature, film, and media; literary theory and cultural studies; Holocaust studies; art and architecture; political and social theory; and philosophy.

John Urang is a faculty member in the Department of Culture & Media at Marylhurst University. His research and teaching interests include film and media theory, German and European cultural history, and critical theory. He blogs about culture and media at The Difference Engine.
