Abstract

Seit seiner Gründung vor annähernd 25 Jahren hat sich das Göttinger Umwelthistorische Kolloquium zu einer Einrichtung entwickelt, welche die vielfältigen, thematisch einschlägigen Aktivitäten des Standortes wie auch des deutschsprachigen Raumes durch Austausch von Forschungsergebnissen und Sichtweisen bündelt. Von hier haben auch einige Unternehmungen ihren Ausgang genommen, welche zum heutigen Profil der Umweltgeschichte spürbar beitrugen. Der Band vereinigt Beiträge zum Kolloquium des Sommersemesters 2011 und des Wintersemesters 2011/12.

Abstract

Did King Alfred the Great commission the Old English translation of Bede’s Historia Ecclesiastica Gentis Anglorum, probably the masterpiece of medieval Anglo-Latin Literature, as part of his famous program of translation to educate the Anglo-Saxons? Was the Old English Historia, by any chance, a political and religious manifesto for the emerging ‘Kingdom of the Anglo-Saxons’? Do we deal with the literary cornerstone of a nascent English identity at a time when the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms were threatened by a common enemy: the Vikings? Andreas Lemke seeks to answer these questions – among others – in his recent publication. He presents us with a unique compendium of interdisciplinary approaches to the subject and sheds new light on the Old English translation of the Historia in a way that will fascinate scholars of Literature, Language, Philology and History.

Abstract

In this chapter I have endeavoured to demonstrate the ways in which an&#xD;approach that takes the emotions seriously might nuance and complicate&#xD;our understandings of the history of pre-anaesthetic surgery. In general,&#xD;historians have tended to focus on the operations of surgical dispassion, or&#xD;what we might now term clinical detachment. What this research suggests,&#xD;however, is that compassion and emotional expression played a surprisingly&#xD;important role in shaping the cultures of early nineteenth-century operative&#xD;surgery as well as the identities of its practitioners. In the decades immediately&#xD;preceding the advent of anaesthesia, pain became a central concern of&#xD;surgical discourse and the response to this concern was shaped by the cultures&#xD;of sentiment and sensibility. However, this culture of compassion was&#xD;no ‘natural’ reaction to a self-evident problem. Rather, it was a culturally&#xD;and historically contingent phenomenon which could be harnessed to the&#xD;ideologies and ambitions of medical reform. In the hands of men like John&#xD;Bell and Thomas Wakley, the image of the surgeon as a man of refined and&#xD;honest sentiment was linked to a critique of the medical and surgical ancien&#xD;regime, providing an idealised representation of a more expert, meritocratic&#xD;and altruistic profession.

Abstract

The contributions to this volume approach the subject of translation from a multitude of perspectives. They thus show how translations are not only closely connected with notions of language, literature, and cultural studies but also reciprocally influence societal and political circumstances as much as they are influenced by these.

Museums especially in the Anglosaxon world understand that they have to present themselves in a modern form if they want to be accepted by a younger audience. Internet, social media, virtual and augmented reality, open culture: these are keywords which receive an ever increasing importance in the museum context as well. The book presents a selection of art museums which approach the digital sphere in a creative manner. In this way they try to cope with both their mission to educate and to entertain.

Abstract

Umweltgeschichte hat sich zu einem bedeutenden Themenfeld historischer Forschung entwickelt. Die Betrachtung vergangener Mensch-Umwelt-Interaktionen kann zum Verständnis heutiger Wechselwirkungen beitragen und Orientierungswissen für aktuelle gesellschaftliche und politische Umwelt-Debatten bereitstellen. Die Einrichtung des DFG-Graduiertenkollegs 1024 „Interdisziplinäre Umweltgeschichte. Naturale Umwelt und gesellschaftliches Handeln in Mitteleuropa“ an der Georg-August-Universität Göttingen 2004 war ein wichtiger Schritt zur Etablierung der Umweltgeschichte in der deutschen Forschungslandschaft. Kennzeichnend für die Göttinger Forschungen war stets der interdisziplinäre Ansatz, welcher naturwissenschaftliche und kulturwissenschaftliche Forschungsmethoden und Forschungsfragen zu verbinden versucht. Nach neunjähriger Förderzeit beendete das Kolleg im Jahr 2013 seine Arbeit. Der vorliegende Band enthält Beiträge des Abschlussworkshops. Unter den Themenkomplexen „Die Umwelt erfassen“, „Die Umwelt planen“ und „Der Umwelt widerstehen“ geben die Autoren anhand ausgewählter Fallstudien Einblicke in einige der erreichten Forschungsergebnisse des Graduiertenkollegs.
