Modern Romanian filmmaking has received wide international recognition. In only a decade (2001 to 2011), a group of promising young filmmakers have been embraced as important members of European cinema. The country developed a new fervor for filmmaking and a dozen new movies have received international awards and recognition from some of the most important film critics in the world. This development, sometimes called "New Wave cinema," is fully explored in this book. By using a comparative approach and searching for similarities among some of the most important cinematic styles and trends, the study reveals that the Romanian young directors working after 2000 are part of a larger, European, way of filmmaking. Looking for elements of cohesion in this new school of filmmaking, the discussion moves from the specific themes, motifs and narratives to the philosophy of a whole generation of filmmakers, such as Cristi Puiu, Cristian Mungiu, Radu Muntean, Corneliu Porumboiu, Tudor Giurgiu, and others.

Gender And Trauma

This volume presents eight integrated essays that explore the intersection of the scholarly fields of gender and trauma, combining work that can broadly be located in the subject areas of literary studies, the humanities, and the social sciences. The contributors search for a more comprehensive theoretical ground to analyze the overlapping, inter-agency, and also, the lines that separate the issues of gender and trauma, to establish a more political linking of the materiality of the effects of trauma to the performativity of gender, as well as to examine the ways in which the categories of sex, sexual difference and sexual identity figure within such a relationship. Likewise, our discussion is guided by the increasing awareness of the cross-cultural delineation, dynamics, and translatability of these fields – the awareness that facilitates the understanding of the instances of their interference in the rhetoric of a dominant culture and in dominant societal structures. This specific input which refers to structurally quite comparable identity formations or to their prevention, and also to complex terms of symbolic legitimacy and intelligibility, is the attainment of a joined intercultural and interdisciplinary work on some of the key concerns we are confronting today.

Sigmund Freud is commonly referred to as "the father of psychoanalysis" and his work has been highly influential - popularizing such notions as the unconscious, the Oedipus complex, defense mechanisms, Freudian slips and dream symbolism - while also making a long-lasting impact on fields as diverse as literature, film, Marxist and feminist theories, and psychology. In Dream Psychology: Psychoanalysis for Beginners, Sigmund Freud, coined "the father of psychoanalysis" presents to the reading public, in a form which shall neither discourage beginners, nor appear too elementary to those who are more advanced in psychoanalytic study the key to all modern psychology. With a simple, compact manual such as Dream Psychology there shall no longer be any excuse for ignorance of the most revolutionary psychological system of modern times. Covering everything from sexual desires and the unconscious to the symbolism of dreams this is a seminal handbook for students of Freudian theory.

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Leipzig (Institut für Amerikanistik), course: Psychoanalysis in Literature, 19 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This paper is taking interest in Madonna and psychoanalysis, yet it is not supposed to conclude as an analysis of Madonna and her psychic condition as a patient. However, what I am trying to do on the following pages is to detect and employ various concepts of Freud’s revolutionary theory (or rather theories) in the context of pop star Madonna and her music videos in particular. Initiated by a seminar on psychoanalysis and literature, this paper tries to portray how influential Freud’s findings were and to this day still are, but probably also that the post-Freudian society at times seems to escape into thoroughly explaining matters with the help of their layman understandings and ideas of psychoanalysis. What I am trying to say is that one is tempted to overdo interpretations with the help of psychoanalysis, ignoring the fact that it has limitations as well. I noticed myself, especially, becoming oblivious to that fact when analyzing Madonna. That occurrence, however, exemplifies how prone we are, as post-Freudians, to employ this theory in our thinking, understanding, and interpretation of ideas and concepts; not only in academic spheres, but also in everyday life. I have tried to structure this paper in accordance of the various psychoanalytic concepts that I chose to discuss in regard to Madonna’s music videos. However, my intended agenda for this essay proved somewhat incompatible with my findings, which means that quite frequently there was no clear-cut distinction to make between, for instance, the universal prominence of sexuality and the dream and their overall importance in applying psychoanalytic theory on literary texts (in this case on music videos and sequences). Owing to better readability and coherence, however, I still arranged this paper in chapters, pointing out once more that cross-references and repetitions to some extent are indispensable. Since the focus of this paper is on Madonna’s music videos, visual representations so to speak, I start out discussing the importance of psychoanalysis and its ramifications for film theory. I have struggled with the equalization of entire films, in which film theory is based, and music videos; yet I have found that these sequences, in a way, tell entire stories as well, and, owing to their limitations in regard to the time frame, are condensed to a much larger extent than are ordinary films, which is reflected in the frequent employment of symbolism and ciphers in music-video composition (This condensation itself implies a close similarity to Freud’s comments about the dream-work.) Beginning with general theoretical observations on film theory and psychoanalysis in terms of modes and conventions of perception I will lead to the discussion of the actual contents of Madonna’s music videos in regard to at least some of Freud’s ideas.

The Ends of Mourning explores from an interdisciplinary perspective the contemporary crisis of mourning. In an age skeptical of history and memory, we relate to the past only as a spectacle, a product to be consumed in the cultural marketplace. The book charts the emergence and development of the problem of mourning in the writings of Freud, Proust, and Freud's successor Lacan. Freud's idea of "sorrow work" and Proust's concept of involuntary memory defined the terms of the classic modernist account of mourning in the fields of psychoanalysis and literature. Yet their insistence on the egotistical aspects of loss to the exclusion of all ethical and political considerations threatens the dissolution of the question of mourning.
