Chapter Summary

The author in this chapter argues that the notion of cultural continuity in terms of temporal, spatial and semantic trajectories goes beyond the physical place and time of Weimar Berlin. As a focus of attention for current scholarship it may direct the attention a) thematically to developments in other places such as Warsaw, b) to theoretical and methodological questions such as translation and genre formation, and c) to the very history of scholarship. The chapter proposes reflections on the impact and implications of the Russian Jewish migration to Berlin. In order to outline the various trajectories that Berlin might offer it concentrates on four dimensions that shaped the cultural production in Berlin itself and open at the same time vistas beyond Berlin which are, of course, interconnected. These four analytical categories are a) the textual dimension b) the discursive dimension c) the cultural dimension and d) the 'semantic' dimension.

Keywords:'semantic' dimension; cultural dimension; discursive dimension; Russian Jewish migration; textual dimension; Warsaw; Weimar Berlin
