Abstract

What does 'anticapitalism' really mean for the politics and culture of the twenty-first century? Anticapitalism is an idea which, despite going global, remains rooted in the local, persisting as a loose collection of grassroots movements and actions. Anticapitalism needs to develop a coherent and cohering philosophy, something which cultural theory and the intellectual legacy of the New Left can help to provide, notably through the work of key radical thinkers, such as Ernesto Laclau, Stuart Hall, Antonio Negri, Gilles Deleuze and Judith Butler.&#xD;&#xD;Anticapitalism and Culture argues that there is a strong relationship between the radical tradition of cultural studies and the new political movements which try to resist corporate globalization. Indeed, the two need each other: whilst theory can shape and direct the huge diversity of anticapitalist activism, the energy and sheer political engagement of the anticapitalist movement can breathe new life into cultural studies.Anticapitalism is an idea which, despite going global, remains rooted in the local, persisting as a loose collection of&#xD;grassroots movements and actions.

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.&#xD;&#xD;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.&#xD;&#xD;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

This Yearbook of the German Language Institute aims to call to mind the traditions of linguistics in cultural studies and at the same time to document the connections between linguistics and modern research paths in cultural studies such as the theory of cognition and discourse analysis. In addition, the papers illuminate the linguistic turn in literary and historical studies. Thus the volume presents the foundations and theoretical and methodological approaches to linguistics as a cultural study, together with examples related to practice.

Abstract

With its expert seminars for alumnis abroad the Georg-August-University Göttingen wants to strengthen its contact with the alumni in the long term and create a global network. This volume is the result of a seminar on "Germany and the Wende (Change) in Literature, Language and Media". The participants were scientists, writers and filmmakers with their own views on contemporary German history and the reunification as well as alumni from China, Japan and Korea who are involved in their home countries in the dissemination of German language and culture. The seminar and the title discuss a specifically German experience, the reunification („Die Wende“) as central theme which also has an actual and high relevance in Korea and China.

Abstract

Jeden Morgen stehen wir vor dem Schrank und damit vor der Frage: »Was ziehe ich an?« So trivial einerseits, so vielschichtig ist die alltägliche Kleidungspraxis bei genauerer Betrachtung. Diese ethnographische Studie läßt die Akteurinnen und Akteure ausführlich zu Wort kommen und zeigt, wie sich Geschlecht, Körper, Politik und soziale Unterschiede in der Kleidung reflektieren. Der konsequent empirische Blick auf das doing gender als dressing gender - also auf das Zusammenspiel von Kleidungs- und Geschlechterpraxen - zahlt sich insofern aus, als gewissen feuilletonistischen Hypes und kulturwissenschaftlichen Prognosen widersprochen werden kann, die regelmäßig das Verschwinden der Geschlechterdifferenz verkünden.

Abstract

Wie lässt sich nach den pathetisch aufgeladenen Postmoderne-Debatten vom Subjekt sprechen? Das Buch unternimmt den überfälligen Versuch, subjektkritische Diskurse der letzten dreißig Jahre innerhalb und außerhalb des Feminismus gemeinsam in den Blick zu nehmen. Im Kontrast werden Besonderheiten sichtbar, Antworten auf die Frage nach angemessenen Repräsentationsformen des Subjekts herausgearbeitet und weitergeführt. Dank der klaren Darstellung komplexer Diskursstränge eignet sich das Buch auch sehr gut als Einführung in eine der Schlüsselfragen der Literatur- und Kulturwissenschaften bzw. der Gender Studies.

Abstract

Die Figur des 'ganz normalen Mannes' als Verlierer unserer Gesellschaft erfreut sich seit Ende der 1990er Jahre großer Popularität. Aber was ist an der marktfähigen Rede von Männern in der Krise interessant? Die Studie zeigt, dass die Inszenierung des unrettbar realitätsuntüchtigen Mannes zum Sigle einer harschen Gesellschaftskritik wird. Hollywoodblockbuster wie »American Beauty« von Sam Mendes oder »Fight Club« von David Fincher ebenso wie die Romane von Michel Houellebecq koppeln die Erzählung von dysfunktionalen Mittelschichtsmännern an die Beschreibung der Konsumgesellschaft als weder menschliches noch zu humanisierendes System.

Abstract

Der Blick in fremde Küchen und Töpfe ermöglicht es, sich einer Kultur zu nähern - Essen und Kochen sind für die interkulturelle Verständigung zentral. Vor allem literarische Texte geben Einblick in facettenreiche Dimensionen der Gastrosophie, etwa in Tischsitten, Riten, Nahrungstabus, gedächtnis- und erinnerungsfördernde Prozesse sowie Akkulturationserfahrungen. Umfangreich und repräsentativ bietet dieser Band erstmals eine gattungs- und epochenübergreifende Speisenfolge: vom Genießen Gottes in Texten mittelalterlicher Mystik bis hin zur Versprachlichung multikultureller Lebensformen in der deutsch- und englischsprachigen Gegenwartsliteratur.

Abstract

Springen, Fallen, Spritzen und Explodieren sind Flüchtigkeitsphänomene, die in jüngerer Geschichte durch mediale Inszenierungen Sensationswert erhalten haben und unser kulturelles Bildbewusstsein prägen. Auf der Grundlage einer kulturwissenschaftlich orientierten Bildwissenschaft rekonstruiert der Autor Ursprung und Wandel von Plötzlichkeitsmotiven, um die daraus entstehenden Semantiken und Faszinationseffekte zu ermitteln. Ausgehend von Beispielen aus der wissenschaftlichen, populärkulturellen, journalistischen und Mode-Ikonografie werden Produktionen des visuell Außergewöhnlichen verfolgt sowie überraschende Verbindungen zwischen unterschiedlichen Visualitätskulturen aufgezeigt. Ein reiches Bildmaterial belegt eindrucksvoll, wie Aufzeichnungsmedien an der Herstellung von modernen Ereigniserfahrungen teilhaben.

Abstract

Military force projection is the self-reliant capacity to strike from mainland ports, bases and airfields to protect Australia’s sovereignty as well as more distant national interests. Force projection is not just a flex of military muscle in times of emergency or the act of dispatching forces. It is a cycle of force preparation, command, deployment, protection, employment, sustainment, rotation, redeployment and reconstitution. If the Australian Defence Force consistently gets this cycle wrong, then there is something wrong with Australia’s defence.&#xD;&#xD;This monograph is a force projection audit of four Australian regional force projections in the late 1980s and the 1990s—valid measures of competence. It concludes that Australia is running out of luck and time.&#xD;&#xD;The Rudd Government has commissioned a new Defence White paper. This monograph is Exhibit A for change
