Abstract

This book presents the development and present status of adaptions of chaos theory for literary studies. Furthermore the integration of these methodological approaches into a discipline that is oriented towards cultural studies is demonstrated. The publication consists of four parts. The first part of the work deals with the issues created through questions posed by historical philosophy and historiography. It discusses how reflections on linear time, as well as on the description and explanation of sequences, circularity and synchronicities lead to an increased complexity in the semanticts of time in the notion of the objects analized. It also discusses the integration of discourses from other disciplines into literary history. It is demonstrated that both aspects - increased complexity and supplementary discourses - are highly influential in hermeneutical literary studies.The second part deals with changes in the notion of time in the modern and so-called post-modern era. It focuses especially on non-linearity, the increasing importance of historical time in the natural sciences and on the effect of this tendency on the analysis of highly complex structures outside of the natural sciences. In the third part of the publication concrete examples of the adaption of chaos theory for literary studies are examined - especially their epistemological interest, their position within the framework of the discipline and their interdisciplinary potential. This part elucidates the potential of focusing on the literary text and its particularities under the premises of chaos theory and how such an interdisciplinary approach helps to bridge the cap between the natural sciences and the humanities.In the final part of the publication the social and cultural relevance of historical knowledge as a frame of reference in times of increasing (temporal and social) complexity is examined. With reference to the explanatory power of hermeneutical procedures "chaostheoretical literary studies" are proposed as a working hypothesis. The approach is intended as a model which can be integrated into cultural analysis and not provides descriptions and explanations for highly complex literary texts, hypertexts and virtual realities, but also regards scientific and technical production and distribution of knowledge as an important part of culture and thus integrates it into its analysis.

Abstract

After the opening of the country in the middle of the 19th century, Japan quickly moved towards becoming an industrialized world power. But the romanticist syndrome, imported from Europe by Mori Ogai since the 1890s, especially enchanted young intellectuals and drove their search of a Japanese cultural identity. The goal was, internally, to integrate the entire population, and externally, to make the country distinguishable from the »West« ─ paradoxically, in a spirit of European Romanticism. Takemitsu Morikawa investigates these remarkable developments and retraces the rise and canonization of the alleged self-image of modern Japan.

Abstract

Der Band Wien setzt die flächendeckende Bestandsaufnahme des literarischen Lebens in Österreich während des Nationalsozialismus fort. Dem Skandalisieren von Einzelfällen und der Präsenz der Schriftstellerinnen und Schriftsteller im kulturellen Gedächtnis des Landes wird eine umfassende Materialbasis für sachliche Auseinandersetzung mit dem brisanten Thema zur Seite gestellt. Das methodische Anliegen, ein „literarisches Feld“ (P. Bourdieu) des deutschen Sprachraums lexikalisch aufzuschließen, wird in einem neuen Typus von Handbuch umgesetzt, einer spezifischen vernetzenden Kombination von Personen- und Institutionenlexikon. Anhand einzelner Parameter wird die Integration der AutorInnen in die unterschiedlichen Systeme von der Monarchie bis zur Zweiten Republik aufgezeigt.

Abstract

Tweets, text messages, Facebook status updates, or microblog entries: the process of announcing news and sharing knowledge seems to be getting shorter and shorter. This volume relates the current trend of abbreviation to its antecedents, showing that the use of brevity existed long before the digital age. The career of the short form is closely connected to the cultural achievements of the 17th century, and skyrocketed in the run up to the formation of professional media networks in the 19th century. Since then, anecdotes, case studies, brief messages, the miscellaneous, headlines, and tidbits from around the world have formed essential elements of the organization and communication of modern forms of knowledge.

Abstract

How were accounts of war told in the Middle Ages and the Early Modern era? The contributions to this volume pursue this question in an innovative way through the combination of historical and literary methodologies. With the aid of this interdisciplinary approach, the texts examine storytelling practices and strategies which dissolved genre barriers between factual and fictional texts, thereby expanding insights with regard to their presentation of experience. This volume is not only a pioneering work of cultural studies research, but also an example of successful and productive interdisciplinary collaboration.
