- DescriptionAn inquiry into conceptions of the human body in Austria and Germany before and after the First World War
- Author BiographyELIZA GARRISON is associate professor of art history in Middlebury's Department of History of Art and Architecture. Her research focuses on the art of the Carolingian and Ottonian empires, the historiography of medieval art, and, most recently, the importance of mimesis, copying, and simulacra in the early Middle Ages. She is also broadly interested in processes of political representation, theories of portraiture, and New Objectivity. BETTINA MATTHIAS is professor of German and chair of Middlebury College's German Department, as well as director of Middlebury's summer German Language School. A scholar of early twentieth century German and Austrian literature and culture, her publications aim at transcending disciplinary boundaries and reconstructing the zeitgeist that informed many artists' efforts at both reflecting and shaping their times. In addition to engaging in academic scholarship, Matthias is also active as a theater and opera director and performing pianist. JAMES A. VAN DYKE is associate professor of modern European art in the Department of Art History and Archaeology at the University of Missouri. His research has largely focused on German art and visual culture between the world wars, with particular attention to the relationships between artistic modernism, antidemocratic ideology, and right-wing politics. In addition to articles and essays, he is the author of Franz Radziwill and the Contradictions of German Art History, 1919-45, and is currently working on a second book, Otto Dix: German Painting in the Age of Chaplin.
