1. Burks, Drew Patrick. The Persistence of Advertising Culture: Commerce and Consumers in Multi-Ethnic Galicia, 1911-1921.

Degree: PhD, History, 2018, University of Kansas

Despite tremendous change and instability during the second decade of the twentieth century due to modernization, war, and political reconfiguration, some elements of everyday life in Cracow and Lemberg maintained a remarkable measure of superficial resilience. This study explores the resilience of newspaper advertising culture despite the violence and turmoil experienced during and after the First World War. It seeks to explain the ways in which advertising proved adaptable and the ways that it subtly, but significantly, changed. Both newspaper culture and advertising as a mode of social communication survived the war years and the unstable years in the early interwar period. This is a testament to their integral nature in the character of the modern cities of Cracow and Lemberg. The system of newspaper advertising had been in place for over a decade before the war broke out; and the level of its usage in the immediate years preceding the war is evidence of its familiarity, utility, and acceptance among the populations of Cracow and Lemberg. Though some areas of modern life suffered lapses that seemed to arrest the effects and benefits of modernization, newspaper advertising survived the war because it was an established part of urban culture prior to this period, and because it was able to adapt to the needs of advertisers during times of conflict. Further, as a reflection of the urban culture in Cracow and Lemberg, advertising as a mode of social communication serves as a lens to highlight changes in class and gender dynamics during the period from 1911 to 1921.

2. Davidson, Amelia. Reclaiming a Golden Past: Musical Institutions and Czech Identity in Nineteenth-Century Prague.

Degree: PhD, Music, 2019, University of Kansas

This dissertation explores the relationship between nineteenth-century musical activity in the Czech lands and Czech identity. The objectives of this study are to examine the history of significant musical institutions and organizations established during the nineteenth century, to analyze performance repertories for these entities, and to explore how the activities of these institutions are related to other components of Czech identity. I begin by investigating significant Czech identity markers that existed prior to the nineteenth century. These include a sense of cosmopolitanism established during the reigns of the Holy Roman Emperors Charles I and Rudolf II, a priority on religious reform and tolerance linked to the Hussite period, and a sense of cultural deprivation stemming from the conclusion of the Thirty Years’ War and the Counter-Reformation period. These foundational elements of Czech cultural identity provided the framework for the national revival of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century, which was based in Enlightenment ideals, and for the nationalist movement of the mid-nineteenth century. Using three categories of artistic institutions as case studies—opera venues, including the Estates Theater, the Provisional Theater, and the National Theater; the Prague Conservatory and related music schools; and the amateur arts organizations Umělecká beseda and Hlahol—I examine the motivations for establishing these organizations and analyze their performance repertories to better understand how the contemporaneous idea of “Czechness” influenced and was influenced by these musical activities. The history of these entities and their performance repertories demonstrates that musicality was a meaningful aspect of Czech identity long before nationalist composers brought international attention to the Czech lands, and that in the communities involved with Czech musical life a stronger emphasis has frequently been placed on artistic identity than ethnic or nationalist identity.

3. Johnson, Michael Duane. On the Paths of the Soul: Stanisław Przybyszewski and the Russian Stage. The Cases of Vera Komissarzhevskaia and Vsevolod Meierkhol'd (1900-1910).

Degree: PhD, Slavic Languages & Literatures, 2008, University of Kansas

This dissertation inquires into the impact of the controversial Polish dramatist, essayist, and novelist Stanisław Przybyszewski on the theatrical innovations of two great Russian actor-directors of the early 20th century, Vera Komissarzhevskaia and Vsevolod Meierkhol'd. An erudite and prolific writer almost forgotten today, Przybyszewski has long been regarded as a major figure of Młoda Polska. His unique synthesis of metaphysics, occultism, eroticism, and aestheticism created great controversy in the fin-de-siècle Russian Empire, as the changing Russian theatrical landscape moved from realism and naturalism to less representational forms. My argument for a significant reception in the Russian theater rests on Przybyszewski's aesthetic theories, and particularly, his concept of the "path of the soul." I propose that this concept acted as a catalyst for change in the artistic and professional development of both Russian theatre figures. This dissertation is divided into three sections. The first section, Chapter I, provides a background on the state of Russian theatre at the end of the 19th century and reviews the early reception of Przybyszewski in the Russian press. The second section, Chapters II-IV, examines Komissarzhevskaia's reception of Przybyszewski within a historical-descriptive framework. After examining the possible origins of her affinity for Przybyszewski, Chapter II offers an analysis of textual parallels between Komissarzhevskaia's correspondence and a Russian translation of On the Paths of the Soul (1900). Chapter III draws on Austro-Romanian psychiatrist Jacob L. Moreno's theory of the "psychodrama" to speculate as to why Kommissarzhevskaia was drawn to Przybyszewski's dramas. It explores the hypothesis that Komissarzhevskaia experienced catharsis as she performed her psychologically demanding Przybyszewski roles. Chapter IV examines thematic parallels between Przybyszewski's 1902 theoretical essay On Drama and the Stage and comments that Komissarzhevskaia made in defense of her production of Przybyszewski's drama, Life's Banquet, in 1909. The third section, Chapters V and VI, examines Przybyszewski's reception in Meierkhol'd's writings and productions during his formative years as a member of the Association of New Drama (Tovarishchestvo Novoi Dramy). Chapter V sets forth the possible reasons for Meierkhol'd's affinity for Przybyszewski. Chapter VI argues that Przybyszewski's "path of the soul," with its focus on the soul as a reflection of the eternal, prescribed particular methods, such as synthesis and symbolization, which Meierkhol'd used to break from the confining traditions of naturalism. Chapter VI argues that Meierkhol'd's 1903 production of Snow represents one of his earliest experiments with non-representational (uslovnyi) forms. In support of this claim, this chapter provides an interpretive analysis of two articles by Aleksei Remizov and the production's combination of music, drama, and lighting.
