The Media Politics of the Federal Ministry of the Interior after National Socialism

Stefanie Palm

Associated PhD project

The media politics of the Federal Ministry of the Interior were in many respects overshadowed by National Socialism: the debate on ‘smut and trash’, the initiatives for a federal press act or ‘Soraya’s Law’, as well as the establishment of a Voluntary Self-Regulation of the Film Industry are only a few examples that sparked conflicts among the German public as a result of legislative initiatives on the part of the ministry’s Culture Department.

Doppelgänger, Stellvertreter, Avatare: (Posthuman) Bodies in Digital Performances

Jens Kraushaar

PhD project

The project asks about the substitute function in the various types of avatars that appear as posthuman bodies. The avatar types are examined in three areas (museum as a place of remembrance, art in contemporary contexts, social and societal lifeworld).
