Abstract

Die Musik des 20. und bisherigen 21. Jahrhunderts ist geprägt von einer nie dagewesenen Komplexität kompositorischer Ansätze, die mit dem Aufbrechen der herkömmlichen Dur-Moll-Tonalität begann und mit den multimedialen Möglichkeiten des neuen Jahrhunderts noch lange nicht zu Ende ist. Auch die vor allem nach 1950 eingetretene fundamentale Wandlung ästhetischer Positionen aufgrund gesellschaftlicher Umbrüche hat ihre Spuren in der Musik hinterlassen. Der Begriff der Musik entwickelte sich im Laufe des 20. Jahrhunderts zu einem vielschichtigen Topos pluraler Musiken, basierend u.a. auf neuen kompositorischen Mitteln, interkulturellen Begegnungen, unterschiedlichen medialen Zugängen und nicht zuletzt einem Wandel ästhetischer Rezeptionsmechanismen. Im vorliegenden Band werden Referate zu diesem Themenkomplex aus der Rubrik „Freie Referate“ des 15. Internationalen Kongresses der Gesellschaft für Musikforschung, der vom 4.–8. September 2012 in Göttingen unter dem Motto „Musik | Musiken. Strukturen und Prozesse“ stattfand, zusammengefasst. Das Panorama reicht dabei von Fragen nach einer kompositorischen Spätstilistik, kulturellen Austauschprozessen, musikalischen Grenzerfahrungen und intermedialen Exotismen bis hin zu multimedialen Klanginstallationen und Musiktheaterkompositionen und dem damit verbundenen Aufbrechen tradierter Gattungsgefüge.

Abstract

This book provides the most in-depth study of capital punishment in Scotland between the mid-eighteenth and early nineteenth century to date. Based upon an extensive gathering and analysis of previously untapped resources, it takes the reader on a journey from the courtrooms of Scotland to the theatre of the gallows. It introduces them to several of the malefactors who faced the hangman’s noose and explores the traditional hallmarks of the spectacle of the scaffold. It demonstrates that the period between 1740 and 1834 was one of discussion, debate and fundamental change in the use of the death sentence and how it was staged in practice. In addition, the study provides an innovative investigation of the post-mortem punishment of the criminal corpse. It offers the reader an insight into the scene at the foot of the gibbets from which criminal bodies were displayed, and around the dissection tables of Scotland’s main universities where criminal bodies were used as cadavers for anatomical demonstration. In doing so it reveals an intermediate stage in the long-term disappearance of public bodily punishment.&#xD;&#xD;

Abstract

Ovariotomy provides a useful way of unpacking not just the process of surgical innovation but also the usefulness of innovation as an analytical category in the history of medicine. How might we pin down the meaning of “innovation”—let alone “alternative innovation”—in surgery when these innovations themselves are unstable, changing entities that are difficult to define? Through the example of ovariotomy I show that alternative innovation need not necessarily imply competition between diverse innovations, but that such a framework might also be used to consider how different versions of the “same” operation arise.

Abstract

Malaria was considered one of the most widespread disease-causing entities in the nineteenth century. It was associated with a variety of frailties far beyond fevers, ranging from idiocy to impotence. And yet, it was not a self-contained category. The reconsolidation of malaria as a diagnostic category during this period happened within a wider context in which cinchona plants and their most valuable extract, quinine, were reinforced as objects of natural knowledge and social control. In India, the exigencies and apparatuses of British imperial rule occasioned the close interactions between these histories. In the process, British imperial rule became entangled with a network of nonhumans that included, apart from cinchona plants and the drug quinine, a range of objects described as malarial, as well as mosquitoes. Malarial Subjects explores this history of the co-constitution of a cure and disease, of British colonial rule and nonhumans, and of science, medicine and empire.

Abstract

Fruit d’une recherche menée entre le Chiapas et les États-Unis, produit d’une observation participante réalisée durant 18 mois auprès de jeunes, ce livre constitue une réflexion novatrice sur les rapports entre migration et mobilisations collectives, entre mobilité et résistances. Il privilégie l’étude de la subjectivité de ces jeunes migrants indiens qui quittent leur communauté et, une fois la frontière franchie, font l’expérience de l’« illégalité », du racisme et de l’exploitation de leur force de travail au sein de secteurs d’emploi dégradés tels le nettoyage, la restauration, l’agriculture…

Abstract

En 1954, Djibo Bakary, un activiste nationaliste de gauche nigérien fonda l’Union Démocratique Nigérienne (UDN), un parti politique qui visait non seulement à combattre la domination coloniale, mais aussi à réaliser une transformation large de la société nigérienne. Le parti fut salué par le cri de ralliement « Sawaba », un terme haoussa qui indique le soulagement par rapport à l’adversité et un retour au calme et à la sérénité soulignant l’aspiration des Nigériens à être délivrés de la pauvreté et de l’oppression coloniale sous toutes ses formes. Le Sawaba, dont le noyau était constitué d’un « petit peuple » de ruraux ayant migré en ville, remporta les premières élections générales au suffrage universel du Niger en 1957 et forma le tout premier gouvernement autonome du pays, sous suzeraineté française. En 1958, le mouvement eut maille à partir avec le pouvoir gaulliste de France préférant l’indépendance immédiate à une nouvelle forme d’autonomie et appelant à rejeter la constitution de la Ve République. Les Français, compte tenu la situation stratégique du Niger, réagirent de manière implacable. En violation flagrante de la constitution, un nouveau gouverneur émascula le gouvernement Bakary. La campagne du Sawaba fut contrecarrée. Le parti, interdit, devint une organisation militaire menant la guérilla. Cependant, la guérilla du Sawaba (1960-1966), soutenue par des régimes gauchistes étrangers, aboutit à un échec entraînant la destruction définitive du mouvement. Le récit des luttes du Sawaba n’est pas dénué d’ambigüité, ce qui renvoie au caractère hybride du mouvement et aux métamorphoses vécues au long de son existence. Les sawabistes se montrèrent un mélange singulier d’activistes politiques et de combattants qui, au lieu de faire violence à la population, s’engagèrent dans la bataille comme les agitateurs de rue qu’ils furent jadis – certes armés, mais avec l’espoir de plaire à l’électeur et d’entraîner une fin instantanée aux souffrances du peuple. Millénariste plutôt que militariste, cette mentalité donne la clef de la tragédie de leur défaite.

Abstract

Thought necessarily reflects the times. Following the tragedy of the Holocaust, this fact became ever more clear. And it may be the reason postwar philosophical texts are so difficult to understand, since they confront incomprehensibly traumatic experiences. In this first English-language translation of any of his books, Miroslav Petříček—one of the most influential and erudite Czech philosophers, and a student of Jan Patočka—argues that to exist in the second half of the twentieth century and beyond, Western philosophy has had to rewrite its tradition and its discourse, radically transforming itself. Should philosophy be capable of bearing witness to the time, Petříček contends, this metamorphosis in philosophy is necessary. Offering an original Central European perspective on postwar philosophical discourse that reflects upon the historical underpinnings of pop culture phenomena and complex philosophical schools—including Adorno, Agamben, Benjamin, Derrida, Husserl, Kracauer, and many others—Philosophy en noir is a record of this transformation.
