This collection tells the story of the case study genre at a time when it became the genre par excellence for discussing human sexuality across the humanities and life sciences.It is a transcontinental journey from the imperial world of fin-de-siecle Central Europe to the interwar metropolises
of Weimar Germany and to the United States of America in the post-war years.

Foregrounding the figures of case study pioneers, and highlighting their often radical engagements with the genre, the book scrutinises the case writing practices of Sigmund Freud and his predecessor sexologist Richard von Krafft-Ebing; writers including Leopold von Sacher-Masoch and Alfred Doblin; Weimar intellectuals such as Erich Wulffen and psychoanalyst Viola Bernard. The results are important new insights into the continuing legacy of such writers and into the agency increasingly claimed by the readerships that emerged with the development of modernity.

Birgit Lang is Senior Lecturer in German Studies at The University of Melbourne. Joy Damousi is ARC Kathleen Fitzpatrick Laureate Fellow and Professor of History at The University of Melbourne. Alison Lewis is Professor of German at The University of Melbourne.
