Our lecture explores the medial construction and aestheticising of the war, examining current TV documentaries on the First World War. Two time planes are here intertwined: on the first level we see how the film medium during World War One lends to the industrialised war events a new aesthetic dimension. In the second, contemporary level, this film material is reassembled and charged with additional significance. Both temporal levels are inseparably intertwined with one another – both construct the modern mythos of the “clean” war. In contemporary TV documentaries the aesthetic of mechanised war is endowed with an additional function that transcends the former. It ties in with a widespread tendency in German mnemonic culture of perceiving the Germans primarily as victims. World War One was not – as is so often asserted – the “first mediatised war“. Already in the American Civil War, as well as in subsequent wars, intensive photo coverage was developed, ever more frequently with the work of amateur photographers. Photographs of war action became ubiquitous. Nevertheless, a qualitative developmental leap did occur in film portrayal during the First World War. At that time, war reports resorted repeatedly to traditional iconographic stylistic devices and pictorial aesthetic conventions of war photography: the weapon still life, “general’s-eye-views“ of the battle field, heroic soldiers, war as “picnic”; especially the non-functional film reports, though, remained rigid, and with a multitude of artificial scenes, delivered a hardly realistic view of combat events. However, the fictional portrayal of war in movies supervened, and by writing over real war experiences with played out scenarios, gradually blurred the distinction between fiction and reality, transforming war into entertainment. The TV documentaries we examined resort to wartime pictorial material, though in their recombination of the film sequences following our contemporary video-aesthetic, with a high pictorial content, quick cuts and dramatic production. This aesthetic is closely oriented towards our contemporary images of the modern, engineered war. Our first part consists in a detailed film- and picture analysis of wartime film material. In our second part, we examine how TV authors work with this material. Our focus here will be on the aestheticising of technological artefacts in war events and the stylising of scientific war research as symbols of modern warfare. These two inquiries constitute the basis of a conclusive synthesis, which examines continuities and breaks in the narration these pictures transport. The lecture offers a contribution to the discussion on the treatment of pictures in the media and in historical science. Inherent in this research is also the principal question of whether the little picture- and film material we have determines our view of the First World War. Are not the images of World War One not rather reread and reassembled in the course of contemporary discourse? [less ▲]

Rare earth elements govern today’s high-tech world and are deemed to be essential for the attainment of sustainable development goals. Since the 1990s, these elements have been predominantly supplied by one single actor, China. However, due to the increasing global relevance of their availability, other countries are now encouraged to enter the market. The objective of this paper is to analyze the strategic interactions among (potential) suppliers. In particular, we are interested in (1) the optimal timing for a newcomer (e.g. the U.S.) to enter the market, (2) the incumbent’s (i.e. China’s) optimal behavior, and (3) the cost-efficiency of cooperative vs. competitive market relations. By setting up a continuous-time dynamic game model, we show that (1) the newcomer should postpone the production launch until its rare earth reserves coincide with those of the incumbent, (2) the incumbent should strive for a late market entry and therefore keep its monopolistic resource extraction at the lowest possible level, (3) compared to the payoffs under competition, cooperation leads to a Pareto improvement when started at an early stage. The findings of our model are particularly relevant for the rational strategic positioning of the two great powers, America and China. [less ▲]

Research on warning labels printed on cigarette packages has shown that fear inducing health warnings might provoke defensive responses. This study investigated whether reformulating statements into questions could avoid defensive reactions. Smokers were presented with either warning labels formulated as questions, textual warning labels, graphic warning labels, or no warning labels. Participants’ smoking-related risk perception was higher after exposure to warning labels formulated as questions or no warning labels than after exposure to textual or graphic warning labels. These results indicate that reformulating statements into questions can avoid defensive responses elicited by textual- and graphic warning labels. [less ▲]
