Dissonant LIves: Generations and Violence through the German Dictatorships
My most recent research, for a forthcoming book on 'Dissonant Lives: Generations and Violence through the German Dictatorships' (OUP, 2011), was funded by the Leverhulme Trust, which awarded me a highly competitive three-year Major Research Fellowship (worth £126,206). This research seeks to bring together the levels of historical events and structures with patterns of behaviour and culturally filtered subjective experiences, analysed from the perspective of social generations. Through exploration of the lives of selected individuals facing challenges which were distinctive to specific generations at particular times in Germany across the twentieth century – particularly the ‘war youth generation’, born in the first decade of the twentieth century, and the ‘1929ers’, born in the later years of the Weimar Republic – my rather substantial monograph seeks to develop not only a new interpretation of experiences of living through the Third Reich and GDR, but also more generally a new historical approach as ‘history from within’.
