Abstract

Taking media scholar Henry Jenkins’s concept of ‘convergence culture’ and the related notions of ‘participatory culture’ and ‘transmedia storytelling’ as points of departure, the essays compiled in the present volume provide terminological clarification, offer exemplary case studies, and discuss the broader implications of such developments for the humanities. Most of the contributions were originally presented at the transatlantic conference Convergence Culture Reconsidered organized by the editors at the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Germany, in October 2013. Applying perspectives as diverse as literary, cultural, and media studies, digital humanities, translation studies, art history, musicology, and ecology, they assemble a stimulating wealth of interdisciplinary and innovative approaches that will appeal to students as well as experts in any of these research areas.

Abstract

Fünf unternehmungslustige junge Frauen wuchsen am Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts gemeinsam in Göttingen auf: Philippine Gatterer, Caroline Michaelis, Therese Heyne, Meta Wedekind und Dorothea Schlözer. Alle fünf waren Professorentöchter und genossen eine für ihre Zeit außergewöhnliche Bildung, sodass sie der Nachwelt unter dem Namen „Göttinger Universitätsmamsellen“ bekannt wurden. Als Erwachsene wandten sie sich der Literatur zu und veröffentlichten eigenwillige Gedichte, Abenteuerromane, aber auch Reiseberichte, Übersetzungen und Briefe. Dieser Band versammelt eine Auswahl ihrer interessantesten Werke, ergänzt um Kurzbiographien, historische Erläuterungen und einen illustrierten Stadtrundgang.

Abstract

Die Entstehung von Großstädten ist kein Novum der letzten drei Jahrhunderte. Auch im griechisch-römischen Kulturraum gab es bereits Millionenstädte, die in struktureller, kultureller und sozialer Hinsicht heutigen Großstädten durchaus vergleichbar waren. Aber hielt diese besondere Form menschlichen Zusammenlebens auch Einzug in die Literatur ihrer Zeit? Ohne Zweifel wurde in den Dichtungen der augusteischen und kaiserzeitlichen Epoche eine Großstadt wiederholt zum Ort der Literatur gewählt: die Hauptstadt Rom. Die vorliegende Untersuchung geht der Frage nach, inwieweit die Großstadt mit ihren (spezifischen) räumlichen Merkmalen in den zeitgenössischen Werken thematisiert wird und wie die lateinischen Autoren sich zu ihr als einem eigenen literarischen Gegenstand positionieren.

Abstract

Writing, Medium, Machine: Modern Technographies is a collection of thirteen essays by leading scholars which explores the mutual determination of forms of writing and forms of technology in modern literature. The essays unfold from a variety of historical and theoretical perspectives the proposition that literature is not less but more mechanical than other forms of writing: a transfigurative ideal machine. The collection breaks new ground archaeologically, unearthing representations in literature and film of a whole range of decisive technologies from the stereopticon through census-and slot-machines to the stock ticker, and from the Telex to the manipulation of genetic code and the screens which increasingly mediate our access to the world and to each other. It also contributes significantly to critical and cultural theory by investigating key concepts which articulate the relation between writing and technology: number, measure, encoding, encryption, the archive, the interface. Technography is not just a modern matter, a feature of texts that happen to arise in a world full of machinery and pay attention to that machinery in various ways. But the mediation of other machines has beyond doubt assisted literature to imagine and start to become the ideal machine it is always aspiring to be.

Abstract

„Einem ausführlichen Abriss zur Geschichte der bulgarischen Literatur aus dem beginnenden 20. Jh. folgen originelle Autorenporträts, kulturanthropologische Studien und tiefgreifende Analysen von Texten aus der jüngsten Gegenwart. Die Vernetzung verschiedener methodologischer Ansätze geht vom Kriterium der Innovation und der ästhetischen Qualität der gesichteten Werke aus. Darin sehe ich einen wesentlichen Beitrag zur Revision des Literaturkanons und dessen Rückkopplung an den sozialen, kulturellen und psychologischen Wandel der Gesellschaft im Bulgarien von heute.“ (Svetlana Arnaudova, Literaturwissenschaftlerin) „Kein vorgefundenes System und keine hergebrachte Vorstellung werden hier neu verlegt, sondern eine in beiden Kulturen – der bulgarischen und der deutschen – sich auskennende Autorin vermittelt durch ihre subjektive, aber nachvollziehbar begründete Auswahl ein lebendiges und überraschend anziehendes Bild des Bulgarischen. Besonderen Wert legt sie dabei auf den Transfer kultureller Realien.“ (Anna Dimova, Übersetzungswissenschaftlerin)

Abstract

This study reveals that in medieval Dutch vernacular texts (from the Brabantine authors Jan van Boendale, Lodewijk van Velthem, and Jan van Leeuwen, and in the anonymous Boek van Sidrac) the treatment of individual and universal eschatological topics and themes, such as death, heaven, hell, purgatory, the Antichrist, eschatological people, and Judgement Day is dedicated to moral and ethical guidance to prepare oneself during lifetime for the afterlife. Central to all texts is the fate of the souls in the afterlife and guidelines to assure redemption on Judgment Day. This includes the ability to recognize the signs of the End properly. The vernacular eschatological discourse is considered as an inherent part of the intellectual emancipation of the laity in the later Middle Ages. This book is of interest not only to Dutch and German philologists, but also to historians and anyone interested in the history of religion, especially of eschatology and apocalypticism. This study was awarded with the 2013 Mgr. C. de Clercqprijs of the Koninklijke Vlaamse Academie van België voor Wetenschappen en Kunsten (Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Science and the Arts) for an outstanding work in the field 'History of Religions of Flanders'.

Abstract

Fictionally depicted technology appears to be dominated by gender stereotypes that reproduce common clichés and are based on the opposition of traditional, gender-associated characteristics. Thus, masculinity represents the technological principle whereas femininity is associated with the sphere of nature. But how stereotypical are visions of a future worlds involving innovative technology? The volume focuses on the gender-codification of technological futures in literature and film.

Abstract

This book explores the future of critique in view of our planetary condition. How are we to intervene in contemporary constellations of finance capitalism; climate change and neoliberalism? Think we must! To get to the symptoms; the book’s 38 terms ranging from affect and affirmation to world and work provide the reader with a critical toolbox to be continued. Negativity; judgment and opposition as modes of critique have run out of steam. Critique as an attitude and a manner of enquiry has not.

Abstract

Ce livre part d'un constat: malgré une abondante production, étalée sur près de cinquante ans, le théâtre de Dumas subit aujourd'hui une indéniable éclipse. Or, son auteur a joué un rôle de premier plan dans la «bataille» romantique; il a continué sans interruption d'écrire pour la scène jusqu'à sa mort; refusant l'exclusive, il a pratiqué tous les genres. Il laisse un corpus officiel de soixante-six pièces, en réalité plus de cent si l'on comptabilise les textes non signés mais où sa collaboration est attestée. Cette œuvre s’inscrit dans un héritage, revendiqué ou implicite, de l’Antiquité à la production contemporaine: tragédie classique et néo-classique, comédie d’intrigue et de caractère, scène historique, drame bourgeois, vaudeville, mélodrame, proverbe... Elle en fait un usage complexe, entre emprunts, variations et détournements, en jouant de la contamination entre modèles «nobles» et modèles «mineurs».
