During her DAAD/AICGS fellowship, she will present the contemporary approach to Hitler’s image in film, music, comics, internet, and fashion, and analyze the origins of this phenomenon and differences between two approaches: contemporary and traditional. She will also analyze how intellectual property rights are related to this phenomenon.
