The study of German culture has often focused on literature, thought and the political landscape. This innovative book offers a fresh approach by focusing on different German cultural phenomena, such as language, nationhood, food and drink, film and material culture, and interpreting them using different cultural studies frameworks.

Rather than examining issues of ethnicity, gender, class, and other markers of identity in isolation, this collection shows readers how these key aspects of culture are present in everyday German cultural practices and forms.

Written by a team of leading international scholars, 'Contemporary German Cultural Studies' allows readers to engage critically in aspects of history, culture, memory and power at work within forms as diverse as new museums and the Doner Kebab.

An essential guide for all those who wish to explore the field of German cultural studies in new and challenging ways.
