    Description: In this framework, the first phase begins with colonial conquest and expansion of the "New World," most significantly by the Iberian powers of Spain and Portugal, setting into place global trade connections, including structures for disseminating information and power mechanisms, and resulting in lasting asymmetrical and one-sided military, economic, political, technological, and cultural interchanges between European and non-European powers. The third phase from about 1870 to 1914 witnesses the ascendancy of the United States as a world power and recurrent waves of smallpox, while the fourth and yet ongoing phase is characterized by the globalization of financial markets and communication systems, such as the internet and GPS technologies, along with a wide variety of epidemics from AIDS to Ebola. With so many intriguing directions and tangents, one only wishes Ette would have spent some time discussing the ongoing global environmental destruction along with the "great acceleration" we witness today in the form of greenhouse gas levels, ocean acidification, deforestation, and biodiversity deterioration.

    Description: Offering viewers a filmic Vergangenheitsbewältigung of the German mountaineering past, the two recent features Nordwand (2008) and Nanga Parbat (2010) hark back to the 1920s German Bergfilm. While Nordwand features a mise–en–scène, character constellation, and plot strikingly similar to the earlier Bergfilme, Philipp Stölzl takes great care to imbue his film with an anti-Nazi message. Yet Stölzl's insistence upon an Alpine space stripped of complexities and contexts in combination with his fusion of historical facts and melodrama offers German viewers a less burdened and easily digestible approach to the past. In Nanga Parbat, Joseph Vilsmaier also presents a kind of filmic Vergangenheitsbewältigung of the German mountaineering past by representing mountaineering as an act of postwar rebellion in the spirit of 1968. By presenting free-spirited, morally upright, and ideologically untainted mountain men, both Nordwand and Nanga Parbat at once resume the moral and aesthetic continuum of the Bergfilm and tend to normalize the historically troublesome connections between mountaineering and Nazism. In this way, the films—albeit unwillingly—rehearse some of the same tropes that characterized the Bergfilm in the first place, staging the divide between nature and culture, or man and woman, as an eternal, ahistorical struggle.

    Description: Looking at three imagined depictions of Humboldt's Chimborazo climb—Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's drawing "Höhen der alten und neuen Welt bildlich verglichen" (1807), Rainer Simon's DEFA film Die Besteigung des Chimborazo (1989), and Daniel Kehlmann's bestseller Die Vermessung der Welt (2005)—my essay compares these fictional representations with Humboldt's own narratives to examine the imaginative and ideological bent of each interpretation. While Goethe depicts Humboldt reconnoitering a new world that is a mirror image of the old, Simon portrays him as a passionate educator and revolutionary. This image clashes with Kehlmann's representation of an emotionless Prussian who merely measures the world with tedious determination. Kehlmann's novel formulates, structures, and gives closure to an event that Humboldt intentionally left open to the imagination. While Humboldt gave only cryptic descriptions of the climb, it is Kehlmann who "measures the world" in the sense that his text provides an accessible narrative of the Chimborazo climb.
