Vereinsgeselligkeit und soziale Integration von Arbeitern in Deutschland, 1860–1914
This article scrutinises the development of social clubs that recruited their members both from the working and the middle classes, inquiring as to how club membership influenced the social relations between the classes. It shows that due to state interference and dependence on patronage, the singers’, shooters’, gymnasts’ and ex-servicemen’s clubs strengthened social inequality rather than serving as a place for sociable exchange between the classes. Towards the end of the century, this changed slightly as popular activities such as choir contests and gymnastic tournaments became more prominent and provided club members from lower classes with the opportunity to gain social recognition. However, the potential of popular culture to foster sociability was not realised to its full extent. In the absence of alternative funding sources, leisure clubs were still dependent on contributions from wealthy and influential patrons. This was different in the British case, where market actors such as news publishers, breweries and railway companies invested in popular culture, thus facilitating the independence of working-class associations.
