• “The Workers’ States: Socialism, Culture, and Emotion in Germany, 1933-1989,” the second volume to The Proletarian Dream (2017). A reconstruction of the overdetermined discourse of the worker as an imaginary figure in literature, film, art, design, and political theory, with sections on the Third Reich and the German Democratic Republic. Again the conceptual focus is on the pivotal role of political emotions, as mediated through aesthetic experiences and cultural practices, in the making of class identifications, mass movements, and socialist/communist ideologies.
  • “German Cinema in the Age of Media Convergence.” An account of national cinema from the perspective of media convergence, with case studies on the historical manifestations of media convergence (film, music, theater, literature, television) and on the theoretical implications for film history and media archeology (intermediality, multimediality, adaptation).
