Notes and observations from the field

Ida Susser

This article analyzes the emergence of the squares movement—such as Occupy Wall Street in New York City, the 15 May in Barcelona, and Nuit Debout in Paris—as a new form of “commoning.” The argument is that this commoning, characterized by an

This article considers the Jewishness of Stanley Kubrick (1928–1999), one of the most important filmmakers of the twentieth century. It argues, first, that Kubrick's origins and ethnicity had a significant impact on his work. Second, it locates Kubrick in the intellectual milieu of New York City to show that Kubrick's films engaged with the same dilemmas and explored the same paradoxes as the New York Intellectuals did. Third, it suggests that Kubrick can also be productively considered as a European director. Finally, a brief case study of his 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), using a 'Midrashic' approach, is provided.

For more than a century, Germany has had a well-balanced system

of cities showcasing considerable variety in their social and physical

make-up. It has lacked spectacular global cities like New York,

Tokyo, or London. Instead, western cities include industrial cities

like those in the Rhine-Ruhr Valley and cities shaped by universities

and research (Göttingen or Freiburg), media and publishing (Hamburg),

culture and high-technology sectors (Munich), banking and

finance (Frankfurt/Main), wholesale trade and insurance (Cologne

and Düsseldorf), as well as government and administration (Berlin,

Bonn, and most state capitals). Dramatic social or economic crises

that generate debates about urban decline have not happened.

Thanks in part to effective urban governments, no German city has

come close to the near-collapse of American rustbelt cities during

the early 1980s, or the fiscal meltdown of New York City in the

1970s. Crime has been consistently lower and less violent, and the

American racial divide has no equivalent in German cities. East German

cities, while more unevenly developed, have been no less stable.

East Berlin was the dominant center, linked to the industrial

cities in the North (Rostock) and South (Leipzig, Halle, Dresden) by

a rather creaky infrastructure.
