    Beschreibung "This paper considers representations of female terrorists in German media of the 1970s, particularly the diffusion of the threat posed by the violent woman through invocations of the hysterical feminine. The female terrorist is hugely subversive, especially as, according to Yuval-Davis, woman functions as cultural and literal reproducer and representation of the nation. In the Federal Republic of Germany, with its Nazi legacy and troubled identity, the violent woman becomes a figure of mythical proportions, constituting a great threat to the body politic of the nation. After drawing on Freud's and Riviere's psychoanalytical theories about femininity, hysteria and masquerade, I mobilise contemporary, gender-focused critiques of hysteria as a nineteenth-century pseudo-science, including those of Showalter and Gilman. I trace parallels between the "knowing" and controlling gaze of the nineteenth-century physician and the containing gaze of 1970s patriarchal German media, drawing on both liberal, "quality" media, as well as reactionary publications."
