The American Pipe Dream

Max Shulman

The American Pipe Dream examines the many iterations of addiction as it was performed over the first half of the twentieth century, working from a massive archive of previously ignored material. Because the stage-addict became the primary way the U.S. public learned about addiction and drug use, Shulman argues that performance was essential in creating the addict in America’s cultural imagination. He demonstrates how modern-day perceptions of addiction and of the addict emerge from a complex history of accumulation and revision that spanned the Progressive Era, the Roaring Twenties, and the Great Depression.

German Ways of War

Jaimey Fisher

German Ways of War explores the production of novel spaces and evocation of new affects in the war-film genre between the 1910s and 2000s. Beyond the conventional pairing of visuality and violence, war films combine mobility, landscape, territory, scales, and topological networks into “affective geographies” that interweave narratively-generated affect, space, and political processes.
