Mission Statement

The mission of Heidelberg University Publishing is to provide open access to outstanding academic publications. We see the opportunities afforded by digital publishing as a way to advance the visibility of research output beyond the confines of academic disciplines. For us, this means that we publish open access, follow a consistent e-strategy, use innovative digital publication formats, and ensure quality with double-blind peer review. In addition to electronic formats, we offer high-quality printed versions of all our titles. Our decision to accept a submission does not depend on its provenance, but on its quality.

In keeping with our role as a Comprehensive University, we facilitate forms of interdisciplinary exchange that grow from the strengths of our academic disciplines. Our portfolio includes primarily monographs, edited volumes/proceedings, and textbooks. We also use innovative technology to publish scholarly illustrated books and multimedia objects. In all these endeavors, we collaborate with various national and international partners of the university.

Peer review info

All submissions are initially evaluated by the editors and presented to the advisory board. Manuscripts that meet the acceptance criteria then move forward to peer review. Our double-blind peer review process is based on the guidelines mentioned on our website http://heiup.uni-heidelberg.de/quality_control/peer_review?lang=en

In general, we do not ask reviewers who are affiliated with the same institution as the author or are otherwise affiliated with him, in order to avoid conflict of interests and to ensure the blind peer review.

Abstract

The immense ideological significance that the city of Rome held since the times of the late republic corresponded until the 2nd century AD with the actual supremacy of the urbs within the Imperium Romanum: Rome was the place where socially and politically influential players and groups met; it was where they tried to create an atmosphere of mutual understanding and agreement through complex ways of interaction. Until well into the imperial era the senatorial aristocracy considered the interacting presence of Rome as a major constant of their lifestyle. At least until the 1st century AD the emperors could not disengage themselves from the reference framework that the city was. Therefore, the forms and the reasons for aristocratic and imperial absence are of particular interest. Which role the absence of Rome played in the system of aristocratic interaction and which implications it had for politics and the society of the late republic and the early imperial era is the subject of the present study. Astrid Habenstein's work was awarded by the Historical Institute at the University of Bern with the prize for the best PhD-thesis in 2012.

Abstract

The history of individual seascapes has recently become a vibrant and innovative field of research. Nonetheless, connections between seas (entre mers) and the imagination of lands „beyond the Sea“ (Outre-mer) have only rarely been focused in these contexts. This is precisely the main aim of the present collection of essays, which results from a conference held at Heidelberg University. The individual papers treat various aspects of transmarine connections, their regulation and mental expansion in an Indo-Mediterranean context, which comprises the Mediterranean, the Indian Ocean, as well as projections of seaways to India on other maritime areas, thus spanning a wide chronological spectrum from Egyptian antiquity to the onset of the Atlantic Age in the sixteenth century.

Abstract

In recent years, the availability of large annotated corpora, together with a new interest in the empirical foundation and validation of linguistic theory and description, has sparked a surge of novel work using corpus methods to study the grammar of natural languages. This volume presents recent developments and advances, firstly, in corpus-oriented grammar research with a special focus on Germanic, Slavic, and Romance languages and, secondly, in corpus linguistic methodology as well as the application of corpus methods to grammar-related fields. The volume results from the sixth international conference Grammar and Corpora 2016 (GaC 2016), which took place at the Institute for the German Language (IDS) in Mannheim, Germany, in November 2016.

Abstract

Global history has long become an established field of research. At the 11th conference of the working group on the Early Modern Period (Historians’ Association, Germany), participants aimed at applying global-history approaches not only to distant world regions, but especially to early modern Europe. “Europe” has consistently been both a subject to and a concept of negotiation processes, which hardly kept to territorial borders or clear-cut, topographically or language-bounded areas. The conference proceedings open up new views on geographical and historical imaginations of Europe from within and without, on claims of identity and alterity as well as on the mutability of periphery-centre relations. Moreover, they display the wide range of – internationally well-connected – historical research on the early modern period in Germany.

Abstract

European cookery has grown historically, and so has the Sienese Libro de la cocina. The book's origins are partly in Italy, partly in other cultures, combining recipes from Tuscan cuisine with those taken directly from the older Latin Liber de coquina, a cookery book from Naples which can be seen as a link between Oriental and Western European culinary literature. The Libro de la cocina reveals the complete range of the art of XIVth century Italian cooking: basic and elaborate vegetable, meat and fish dishes, desserts, and dietary preparations. Many of the almost 200 recipes are linked with their Oriental, French, English, and Italian precursors and successors. A complete critical glossary makes the texts accessible and, in addition, parallel vernacular and Latin texts are provided.

Abstract

Over the course of the past decades, photography has become one of the most popular fields of art. This development is also reflected in recent prices for some works of contemporary photography, which fetch up to several million dollars. Such price levels would be unheard of if artists were to take advantage of the opportunity to produce as many prints from the same negative as possible. On the contrary, the prevailing practice in contemporary photography is that of printing photographs in “limited editions”, with some of the most expensive photographs only existing in the low single digits. This study researches the legal implications of artists communicating limited editions to the purchasers of their art with the main question being whether such “promises of exclusivity” are legally binding and thus could be enforced by collectors e. g. in court proceedings.

Abstract

Passing Through Shanghai examines how children experience international mobility. Focusing on a specific yet diverse group of expatriate youths in contemporary Shanghai, the book investigates how children negotiate cultural identity when they are subject to the highly mobile and often privileged lifestyle associated with their parent’s international careers. The ethnographic fieldwork that informs the book was carried out in Shanghai from 2010 to 2012 and focused on expatriate teenagers’ everyday practices, their lives at international schools, their engagement with the city, their dreams and aspirations, as well as their questions of belonging. The book’s ethnographic approach captures the “in-between” state of moving while growing up and explores teenage practices and positionings in this transitory situation. The teenagers’ own perspectives and experiences of living in expatriate communities contribute to a larger view of the interdependence and contradictions between the aspired flexibility of twenty-first century identities and the rigidity of cultural divisions based on nationality, ethnicity, gender, and class.

Abstract

"Proust Cinematographe – Ruiz reading In Search of Lost Time" takes a new look at the metapoetic program of Proust’s A la Recherche du Temps perdu. Selected text passages and film excerpts are analyzed, focusing on the fundamental questions of the novel about the perception and description of time, subject, and identity. It turns out that the novel of the nineteenth century anticipated the concepts of modern cinema on a surprisingly broad scale.
