MARGY GERBER (Bowling Green, OH, U.S.A.) RESEARCH ON GDR CULTURE IN THE UNITED STATES: A LOOK BACK AND SOME THOUGHTS ABOUT THE FUTURE I must start by limiting the term GDR culture, for the spectrum of re- search in the United States is not that broad: research on GDR art and music, for example, is quite rare, and scholarly studies on GDR theater, film, television, or the print media are only slightly more common. More- over, research on these aspects of GDR culture is frequently carried out not by experts specifically trained in these fields but rather by literary scholars who are looking over the fence into related disciplines. Research on GDR culture conducted in the United States is primarily research on GDR literature. Literature published in the Soviet Zone of Occupation and the GDR was to some (very small) extent an object of research already in the 1950s and 1960s. However, no one spoke of GDR research: the authors treated - Johannes Bobrowski, Peter Huchel, and Anna Seghers, for ex- ample - were considered simply German writers; the fact that they lived in the East was of no particular significance.
