Product description


"Evans's analysis of the available visual material proves to be innovative and illuminating." - Malte Zierenberg, Humboldt University Berlin, Germany

"Greatly aided by her eloquent storytelling, the book reaches out across disciplines and appeals not only to historians of postwar Germany but also to geographers as well as scholars of film, literature, and gender studies." - Yuliya Komska, Dartmouth College, United States

About the Author

JENNIFER V. EVANS is Associate Professor of History at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. She teaches a variety of courses in 20th century German history, while her primary area of research is the history of sexuality. She has written about the regulation of same-sex sexuality in Cold War Germany, pink triangle victims during and after the Holocaust, and queer erotic photography as a form of self-narration.
