Abstract

Ferdinand Ebner is next to Ludwig Wittgenstein the most important Austrian philosopher of language in the 20th century. In his main work Das Wort und die geistigen Realitäten. Pneumatologische Fragmente Ebner produces a new form of anthropology, which is based on a dialogic orientated understanding of human beings. Beside his philosophical works Ebner wrote many letters and diaries. One of the 14 existing diaries is the so-called "Mohlauer Tagebuch" from the 23rd of July to the 28 th of August 1920, which is kept on the "Brenner Archiv" in Innsbruck together with the philosophical texts and the letters. In this diary Ebner writes about his stay in Mühlau, a village near Innsbruck, where he was a guest of Ludwig von Ficker for one month and which was the beginning of a long friendship with the publisher of the Brenner. Ficker, who had already published some articles of Ebner in the Brenner, printed the Fragmente 1921, two years after Ebner wrote them. In this way Ficker became the publisher, promoter and friend of Ebner. According to some passages of the diary, Ebner experienced in Ficker a kind of acceptance and security, which he did not know before. This feeling of well-being is also a part of the deep impressions of nature, which Ebner got on many walks through the surrounding of Innsbruck. Although he was a thinker, who always emphasized the meaning of the word, these impressions showed him the limits of language. Ebner's basic opinions are presentated very clearly in his meetings with different members of the Brenner-circle and in the confrontation with the intellectual movements of the time. An example are his talks with Paul Bargehr about Buddhism, who was newly rediscovered in Europe in those days. Ebner understood the good will of Bargehr, but he cannot accept Buddhism as a solution for the big problems of the Europeans. In spite of Ebners turn to Christianity some years before the diary also shows the difficulties in the relation between Ebner and the Catholic church. Of special interest is Ebner's meeting with the painter Erich Lechleitner. In front of Lechleitner's pictures he has doubts about his radical pessimism concerning art and culture.The text of the diary is followed by a commentary, which explains the biographical, literary, philosophical, historical, etc. connections of passages in the diary. The three essays following the commentary give an overview of Ebners biographical, philosophical and cultural background. Monika Seekircher's essay includes a short biography of Ebner and describes the most important personal relations in his life as well as his intellectual developement. Richard Hörmann tries to show the connections between the diary and the Fragmente, because many entries of the diary can only be understood on the basis of the main thoughts of the Fragmente. The topic of Walter Methlagl's essay is the local cultural context, in which the diary is embedded. Special attention is given to the intellectual movements within the Brenner-circle. The numerous photos depict persons, who are mentioned in the diary, places as they then looked and the pictures by painters named in the diary.

Abstract

The volume aims at a comprehensive historical reconstruction of policies, conflicts, attitudes, and regulations covering the diverse field of human reproduction. The analysis is based on two case studies: the United States of America and Austria. While both countries are part of the geographic and conceptual region called the "north-Atlantic world", they occupy significantly different positions within the global power structure, the respective relations between state, religion and society, the nature of their political cultures, etc. While it is impossible to re-construct a universal history of population policies on the basis of the two case studies, in the concluding chapter more universal premises relating to 20th century trends and developments beyond the case studies are suggested. To enable a comprehensive, yet focused comparison the analysis concentrates on three aspects of reproductive policies: sexual advice centers in the cities of New York and Vienna during the interwar period; 20th century policies aimed at the interface between workplace and child care; and the abortion conflicts taking place in the last third of the 20th century. These fields are conceptualized as "arenas"—i. e., spaces or complex social situations where groups and individuals interested in a given issue meet and interact, attempt to establish their world views, and then transform them into commonly accepted norms and regulations. Events, actors, and developments are thoroughly re-constructed for each arena. Finally the arenas are analyzed in relation to social and political developments in which they are situated. Questions about trends and developments relevant for both case studies are addressed in a framework which is organized around notions of reproduction of the nation, of rationalization, and of globalization. The findings from the case studies are related to secular phenomena like migration, globalizing selective population policies, the emergence of international and transnational political bodies (private foundations, UN-organizations, NGOs). The comparison between the U.S. and Austria offers insights into the tensions inherent in modern reproduction between individual empowerment and political disciplining. The striking similarities and significant differences in the trajectories of reproductive policies in both case studies allow conclusions concerning an indissoluble dilemma of reproductive policies committed to "human progress." In the end, the volume contributes to a deeper understanding of the ambivalence inherent to modern reproduction.

Abstract

Die Disziplin der Europäischen Geschichte steht wohl vor der größten Herausforderung ihrer noch jungen Vergangenheit: Die globalhistorische Wende hat viele Grundannahmen der Europäischen Moderne in Frage gestellt und neue Anforderungen formuliert. Die Geschichte Europas soll polyzentrische oder provinzialisierte Perspektiven aufzeigen, die sich als Teil einer transnationalen oder Globalgeschichte verstehen. Diesem Anspruch wird der Band gerecht. Die Beiträger nutzen transnationale, postkoloniale und globalhistorische Zugänge, um einen neuen Blick auf die Europäische Geschichte zu werfen. Zudem führt die Auseinandersetzung mit den geografischen und analytischen Rändern zu einem neuen Verständnis der Geschichte Europas. "Europa" wird dadurch zu einer spezifischen sozialen und kulturellen Konstellation, die sich über innere Gemeinsamkeiten und Konflikte sowie über Abgrenzungen nach außen und Interaktionen mit anderen Weltteilen konstituierte.

Abstract

Die Journalistin, Schriftstellerin und Vortragsreisende Käthe Schirmacher (1865-1930) wird in diesem Band als eine exemplarische Protagonistin des Übergangs europäischer Gesellschaften um 1900 vorgestellt. Die transnationale Agitatorin, die sich als ‚moderne Frau‘ positionierte und in intimen Beziehungen mit Frauen lebte, adressierte als radikale Frauenrechtlerin und spätere völkische Politikerin unterschiedliche politische Arenen. Mit ihrer Inanspruchnahme von Autorität und Kompetenz forderte sie die Zugangsregeln zu hegemonialen Öffentlichkeiten heraus. In ihrem umfangreichen Nachlass wird sie als eine Erzählerin des eigenen Lebens sichtbar, die sich in wechselnden Konstellationen immer wieder autobiografisch neu entwarf. Mit der innovativen Konzeption einer Biografie in Koproduktion regt der Band zur methodischen Weiterentwicklung offener biografischer Forschungsprozesse an.

Abstract

Die Oskar-Halecki-Vorlesung 2014 des Leibniz-Instituts für Geschichte und Kultur des östlichen Europa (GWZO) widmet sich dem politischen und erinnerungskulturellen Vermächtnis der Gewerkschaft Solidarnosc in Polen. Der neoliberale Transformationskurs von führenden Mitgliedern der Solidarnosc der 1990er Jahre wird den ursprünglichen politischen und gesellschaftlichen Zielsetzungen der oppositionellen Massenbewegung von 1980–1981 gegenübergestellt. Der Text ist ein starkes Plädoyer für soziale Gerechtigkeit und dokumentiert die zeithistorische Perspektive eines der Vorkämpfer der politischen Opposition gegen die Polnische Vereinigte Arbeiterpartei und späteren Kritikers des nach der Wende eingeschlagenen Reformwegs.

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

“Visualizations of cult“ deals with the strategies of visual representations of cult as well as with concretisations of its visualization, in the perspective of historical and cultural studies. Cult is understood in a broad sense, describing modes of collective veneration and auratization, in religious, quasi-religious or trivial-profane connections. Cult practice and experience and their manifestations are treated under five aspects: (1) objects: staging of cult, (2) subjects: experiences of cult, (3) cult of persons, (4) spaces of cult, (5) manifestations of cult practice.
