Abstract

A voice on late night radio tells you that a fast food joint injects its food with drugs that make men impotent. A colleague asks if you think the FBI was in on 9/11. An alien abductee on the Internet claims extra-terrestrials have planted a microchip in her left buttock. 'Julia Roberts in Porn Scandal' shouts the front page of a gossip mag. A spiritual healer claims he can cure chronic fatigue syndrome with the energizing power of crystals . . . What do you believe? Knowledge Goes Pop examines the popular knowledges that saturate our everyday experience. We make this information and then it shapes the way we see the world. How valid is it when compared to official knowledge and why does such (mis)information cause so much institutional anxiety? Knowledge Goes Pop examines the range of knowledge, from conspiracy theory to plain gossip, and its role and impact in our culture.What do you believe?

Abstract

This volume is an outcome of the FWF project P14853 "Ethnographie - Gender-Perspektive - Antikerezeption". The research project intended to connect ancient ethnography, gender studies and the running methodological debate. For this purpose the collaborators to the project organised two workshops. The volume contains the revised papers held at the first workshop Frauenbild und Geschlechterrollen bei antiken Autoren der römischen Kaiserzeit at the University of Innsbruck, 5.-8. 3. 2003. &#xD;According to the goal of this workshop the papers connect the theoretical debates of postmodernism und feminism with the daily work of historians or philologists. Each paper touches , in some way or other, the premise underlying the mentioned project that an author's profile can be uncovered by comparing his text with other texts synchronically and diachronically. &#xD;Most of the papers deal with the Roman imperial period. As a whole they cover the time span from the 5th century BCE to the 6th century CE. But they are not arranged chronologically but systematically. First comes a methodological introduction (C. Ulf and K. Schnegg) connected with a description of the papers. The first section then contains five articles pointing at the 'basis and kind of text and its lecture' (Grundlagen und Formen der Texte und der Textlektüre). The authors deal with Augustine, archaeological remains, and modern movies as well. Seven articles focusing on the topic 'historical realities within texts' (Historische Realität(en) im Text) build up the second section. They deal with the attic democray, Augustean propaganda, and authors from Cornelius Nepus to Synesios of Cyrene. In the last section 'text levels and pictures of sexes' (Textebenen und Bilder der Geschlechter) the reader finds articles concerning some aspects of ancient ethnography and the gender perspective of authors from Tacitus to Ennodius. &#xD;The volume offers, in a broad chronological spectrum, varied perspectives on and ways of dealing with texts by separating consciously the search for historical realities form the interpretation of texts. &#xD;&#xD;&#xD;

Abstract

In den letzten Jahrzehnten haben sich die literaturwissenschaftlichen Fächer für kultur- und mediengeschichtliche Fragestellungen geöffnet. Das führt zu einer Erweiterung des Literaturbegriffs, zur Aufhebung der Differenz zwischen Hoch- und Populärkultur sowie zu neuen literatur- und medientheoretischen Überlegungen. Diesen Veränderungen geht die Anthologie exemplarisch an einem konkreten Beispiel nach: Im Zentrum der interdisziplinären Beiträge, die film- und literaturwissenschaftliche Aspekte mit kulturvergleichenden Ansätzen verbinden, steht Quentin Tarantinos Film »Kill Bill«. Mit Beiträgen von Gereon Blaseio und Claudia Liebrand, Martin Przybilski und Franziska Schößler, Rolf Parr, Georg Mein, Uwe Lindemann und Michaela Schmidt, Oliver Kohns und Paul Fleming.

Abstract

Noch nie zuvor gab es so viele Fernsehserien mit so vielen schönen neuen Heldinnen. Mädchen und Frauen wie Ally McBeal, Buffy, Carrie Bradshaw, Daria, die Gilmore Girls, Joey Potter, Nikita und Xena regieren in der Serienwelt. Dieses Buch geht der Frage nach, wie es zu diesem medialen Trend gekommen ist und was ihn ausmacht. Die Popularität all dieser »Chicks« beruht vor allem auf ihrer Unkonventionalität, Progressivität und Subversivität. Sowohl in ihrer Vielfalt als auch in ihren Repräsentationen und (De-)Konstruktionen von Weiblichkeit unterwandern sie stereotypes Mädchen- und Frausein und verkörpern neue Weiblichkeitsentwürfe.

Abstract

Psycho movies implizieren durch die Darstellung psychischer Störungen spezifische Subjektbegriffe und konstruieren damit kulturelle Bilder zu gesellschaftlichen Normalitäts- sowie Abweichungsverhältnissen. Jenseits klinischer Kategorien liefert die Studie für mehr als 100 Spielfilme eine systematische Übersicht über die Vielfalt der darin hergestellten diskursiven Verbindungen. Dabei wird gezeigt, wie die symbolischen Grenzüberschreitungen der psycho movies kritische Perspektiven eröffnen, als etablierte Abweichungscodes wiederum Normalitätsgrenzen befestigen oder selbst zum Gegenstand filmischer Dekonstruktionen werden.

Abstract

»Alles, was aus dem Ausland kommt, ist gut. Das Eigene nicht.« Diese Auffassung resümiert die Erfahrungen einer Gruppe junger Erwachsener aus einem deutsch-chilenischen Raum in Chile. Es handelt sich dabei um Menschen mit Migrationshintergrund, also Angehörige einer kulturellen Minderheit, die aber im lateinamerikanischen Kontext aufgrund ihrer Beziehung zu Europa nicht marginalisiert werden, sondern vielmehr eine positive Diskriminierung erfahren. Dies verändert die Diskussion über hybride Identitäten und kulturelle Zwischenräume und ermöglicht einen erweiterten Blick auf Migration, Kultur und Identität.
