I call these papers every time I take the opportunity to remind everyone that I almost pursued a degree in linguistics (and classics, but that is not the point of this entry). The way I think of language in the context of media is that language is all of the ways we communicate with each other, which influence both our storytelling and interpretation practices substantially. These two papers were written for courses outside of my major coursework (one course was for my Transnational European Studies minor and the other was for a research assistantship position I held translating archival materials pertaining to the film industry in East Germany from German into English), but both relate to media studies and Germany in very prominent ways. Looking into how cultures both inform and are affected by the media they create and consume is a large part of most of my main body of research, which has definitely affected the way I approach smaller assignments like these.
