Reading and Discussion with Andreas Killen, “Homo Cinematicus Science, Motion Pictures, and the Making of Modern Germany,” Mar

Professor Killen (Dept. of History) will discuss his new book, a novel reinterpretation of early 20th century German film history that looks at the ways experts in fields like psychiatry, sexology, psychoanalysis and racial hygiene used motion pictures to produce and communicate knowledge of human subjects. From the diagnosis and treatment of shell-shocked soldiers during the First World War, to the study of emotions and sexual behavior during the Weimar era, and up to the Nazi dream of inventing a New Man, film served scientists as a crucial tool for advancing their professional and social agendas.
