Leah Biebert

Languages: German

DOI: 10.17160/josha.5.7.471

This is one of the four works that have been selected by our JOSHA-editors as a winner of our Demetrios Preis 2018! The Thesis was presented by Leah Biebert from Germany. Die Carmina Burana wurden in ihrem Erfolg zu einem Triumph der Liebe über den Faschismus der Zeit. Sie stellen etwas Allgemeingültiges dar und sind symbolhaft für ein zeitloses Menschentum, dem ein übergreifendes Schicksal, die Unentrinnbarkeit aus dem Rad der Fortuna, auferlegt ist. Aufgrund dieser allumfassenden Thematik konnten Menschen unterschiedlicher Nationen Aspekte ihres eigenen Lebens sowie ihre eigenen Erfahrungen in dem Werk wiederfinden und sich damit identifizieren. Dass das Werk zeitlos ist, kann man auch heute noch an dem Erfolg der Carmina Burana beobachten, durch den die übrigen 17 Bühnenwerke Carl Orffs in den Schatten getreten sind.

Short Story: "Genevieve"

Zazie-Charlotte Pfeiffer

Languages: German

DOI: 10.17160/josha.5.6.456

This article is part of a series of short stories published in the Journal of Science, Humanities and Arts by the young author Zazie-Charlotte Pfeiffer, who received the "Jean-Paul“ Award in 2013 and the "Tom Sawyer" Award in 2012 for her work. This article is written in German. Genevieve weiß nicht, ob sie bereit ist. Bereit für die Menschen, ihre Blicke, ihre bewertenden Gedanken, ihre Konformität. Genevieve ist nicht wie alle anderen, obwohl sie sich eigentlich nichts mehr wünscht, als genau das. Sie will dazugehören, sie will sich unbemerkt in der Masse verstecken können, aber da ist immer diese Befürchtung in ihrem Kopf. Erkannt zu werden. Bloßgestellt zu werden. Niemand, wirklich niemand soll wissen, wer sie einmal gewesen ist. Sie möchte nur als die anerkannt werden, die sie ist. Einfach nur so wunderbar unaufregend und durchschnittlich normal sein.

Motives of Security in The Walking Dead. Social Security Discourses in One of the Most Successful Series of Recent Times

Philipp Reichenbach

Languages: German

DOI: 10.17160/josha.5.6.446

Researchers are discussing whether the revival of zombie genre was inevitable, or whether the new wave of success after the genres' death in the 1990's could be linked to the first shock of Western Civilization in the 21st century, September 11, 2001. In this paper, I take a closer look at the television series The Walking Dead and the theme ‘security’ as one of the potential factors for its success. The five security motives (1) insecure home, (2) human security risk, (3) search for stability, (4) endangered democracy, and (5) critical infrastructures and work on prevention, emphasize that 'security' and the constant search for it is a crucial, early characteristic of The Walking Dead. The characters in the series face a permanent threat and must try to transform this insecurity into (temporary) security, i.e. survival.

From the Visual Defence of Rights to the Visual Representation of a Fundamental Value

Frank Zeiler

Languages: German

DOI: 10.17160/josha.5.5.433

In the 1760s, most inhabitants of the North American colonies which were to become the United States considered liberty as an inherited right that had to be defended within the frame-work of the British constitution against unwarranted intrusions by the government in London. To visualize this struggle in political prints, they made use of motifs like the Roman goddess Libertas and the cap of liberty, both of which they knew from corresponding English prints. Following the Declaration of Independence, these motifs were increasingly turned into attributes of a new political order built on liberty. This transformation led to a mélange of changes and continuities in the iconography of liberty which this article seeks to demonstrate by examining examples of relevant images from the first decades of independence.
