Abstract

Religious aesthetics have gained increasing importance over the past few years in the fields of Religious studies and Islamic studies. This volume highlights the transcultural dimensions of the theoretical foundations of religious aesthetics. It explores aesthetic experience in the religious field through a series of case studies. These include Islamic sermons from the Middle East and South Asia, Islamic religious chanting, a chapter of the Qurʾān, a German performance artist, Indian rasa theory, and Arabic and Bengali literature. Together, the authors demonstrate that the analysis of the aesthetic forms of religious mediation across regions and genres is a fruitful approach to transcultural studies.

Abstract

The rapid growth of doctoral-level art education challenges traditional ways of thinking about academic knowledge, and yet, as Danny Butt argues in this book, the creative arts may also represent a positive blueprint for the future of the university. Synthesizing institutional history with aesthetic theory, Artistic Research in the Future Academy reconceptualizes the contemporary crisis in university education toward a valuable renewal of creative research.

Abstract

Kitchen, cooking, nutrition, and eating have become omnipresent cultural topics. They stand at the center of design, gastronomy, nutrition science, and agriculture. Artists have appropriated cooking as an aesthetic practice – in turn, cooks are adapting the staging practices that go with an artistic self-image. This development is accompanied by a philosophy of cooking as a speculative cultural technique. This volume investigates the dimensions of a new culinary turn, combining for the very first time contributions from the theory and practice of cooking.

Abstract

After a long period of neglect, emotions have become an important topic within literary studies. This collection of essays stresses the complex link between aesthetic and non-aesthetic emotional components. Against this background, emotional patterns are discussed by focusing on the practice of writing as well as on the impact of emotional patterns on receptive processes. Readers will be confronted with a concept of aesthetic emotions as formative both within the writing and the reading process. Essays, ranging in matter from the beginning of modern drama to digital formats and theoretical questions, discuss examples from English, German, French, Russian and American literature.

Abstract

How can we think of the “aura” of (sacred) contexts and (sacred) works? How to think of individual and collective (esthetic/religious) experiences? What to make of the manipulative dimension of (religious and esthetic) “auratic” experiences? Is the work of art still capable of mediating the experience of the “sacred,” and under what conditions? What is the significance of the “eschatological” dimension of both art and religion (the sense of “ending”)? Can theology offer a way to reaffirm the creative capacities of the human being as something that characterizes the very condition of being human? This Special Issue aspires to contribute to the growing literature on contemporary art and religion, and to explore the new ways of thinking of art and the sacred (in their esthetic, ideological, and institutional dimensions) in the context of contemporary culture.

Abstract

Die klassischen Formen der Körpermodifikationen, wie Piercings, Tattoos oder Bodybuilding, sind inzwischen allgegenwärtig. Mittlerweile werden medizinisch-ästhetische Eingriffe von (minimalinvasiven) schönheitschirurgischen oder gewichtsreduzierenden Maßnahmen bis hin zu Penisverlängerungen oder Amputationen immer populärer. Dieses Werk setzt sich erstmals aus dem Blickwinkel der Psychologie und Medizin mit dem teils schwer nachvollziehbaren Phänomen der Körpermodifikationen auseinander. Das Buch nähert sich – wissenschaftlich fundiert – den gängigen Formen und Ausprägungen, den Risiken und Nebenwirkungen, den psychischen und medizinischen Aspekten, der rechtlichen Situation sowie dem kulturgeschichtlichen Hintergrund der äußerst heterogenen Köpermodifikationen.Mit einem durchgehend praxisorientierten Ansatz bietet das Werk konkrete Informationen für alle Ärzte und Therapeuten bei der Beratung und Behandlung ihrer Klienten bzw. Patienten.

Abstract

Forgeries are an omnipresent part of our culture. They are closely related to historically and culturally informed ideas of authenticity, legality, authorship, creativity, tradition and innovation. Based on the concept of mimesis, the volume illustrates that forgeries are thus not to be understood as a negative copy or disgraced rip-off of an original – but as an autonomous aesthetic practice, a creative act in itself. The contributions focus on such different implementations such as faked traditions, pseudotranslations, imposters, identity theft, and hoaxes in different arts and historic contexts. Most importantly, they scrutinize the bonds and borders between original and forgery, and turn out their epistemic capability.

Abstract

&#xD;Popular entertainment and entertainment are considered essentially aesthetic phenomena. But is there a specific "aesthetics of the popular"? And how can mass arts affect the development of worldviews and identity orientations in a problematic way? Kaspar Maase focuses on the "mainstream" of mass arts and their everyday usage practices. In his study, he develops an understanding of popular culture as a network of practical interactions between people, texts, things, contexts, and situations, thus providing basic orientations for empirical research in a variety of disciplines.
