Im Westen nichts Neues?

Untersuchungen zur Antikenrezeption in deutschen Karikaturen des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts am Beispiel des Wahren Jacob

Daidalos – Heidelberger Abschlussarbeiten zur Klassischen Archäologie

To this day, scholars of the reception of classical art and culture have looked almost exclusively upon the so-called ‘high arts’ of painting, sculpting and writing, effectively ignoring more vulgar, popular ways of reception. By virtue of its character as a medium wanting to be understood by everyone, it is a genre like the  simple caricature, however, which offers excellent opportunities to gauge the level of classical education in those ranks of society which did not have access to the academic and artistic training of the bourgeoisie. This book looks at the socialist magazine Der Wahre Jacob in order to examine the degree to which the contents of Wilhelminian classicism were absorbed and adapted by German proletarian counterculture, and hopes to illuminate a long neglected aspect of social conflict in the era of the First World War.

Pascal Hoffmann M.A. M.Sc., born 1990, studied Interdisciplinary Classical Archaeology, Geography and Geoarchaeology at the University of Heidelberg, including one academic year as a visiting postgraduate student at the Faculty of Classics, University of Cambridge. He is currently working on his dissertation in Classical Archaeology supervised by Caterina Maderna (Heidelberg) and Dominik Maschek (Oxford).
