Microbes as Subjects of Modernism: On the Cultural History of an Ephemeral Object (1880–1930)

Zur Wissensgeschichte eines ephemeren Gegenstands (1880-1930)

The book traces the everyday cultural, aesthetic, and ethical impact of bacteriology research on the cultural epoch around 1900. It offers an integrated discursive history of the invisible, while also suggesting an alternative view of classical modernity. Its scope extends from naturalistic novels to ideological texts and includes the literary and artistic avant-garde.
