Melanie Schiller investigates the mutually constitutive relationship between post-war German national identity and popular music. She analyses how German identity is narrated in different genres of pop, ranging from schlager to techno, and at certain periods of transformation. She asks how the past is remembered and what specific elements are highlighted or silenced.
