Article – Race, Ethnicity and German Identity

An American socio-legel scholar who is known to some BAR members for her work on equality, non-discrimination and race, Jacqueline Gehring (Professor of Political Science at Allegheny College in Pennsylvania), has recently published an article that provides a media analysis of the 2010 world cup men’s national soccer team. She has kindly provided us with a link that allows full access to the article via the publisher’s website.

Abstract:  Enjoying a surge of national pride, the German media celebrated the 2010
German World Cup team’s success in South Africa. A dominant theme in this
coverage was the ‘immigration background’ of 11 of the 23 players on the
team and their claim to German identity despite their ethnic diversity. Amid
debate over the changing nature of German citizenship, the national team’s
‘multicultural kickers’ became the focal point for those who wished to reframe
German identity. This article examines German newspaper and
magazine coverage of the national soccer team emphasizing the role that
media played in constructing competing definitions of the German citizen
and nation.
