Abstract

Mit der Krönung von Georg Ludwig, Kurfürst von Braunschweig-Lüneburg (Hannover), zum englischen König Georg I. am 31. Oktober 1714 verschoben sich die politischen Kräfteverhältnisse in Europa. Die Personalunion hatte weitreichende Folgen für den Kontinent und den transatlantischen Raum, doch wichtiger noch waren die nun intensiv gegebenen Möglichkeiten eines Kulturtransfers zwischen Großbritannien und dem Kurfürstentum Hannover. Diese vielfältigen kulturellen, sozialen, wissenschaftlichen und ökonomischen Verflechtungen stehen im Zentrum der Beiträge, die immer wieder auf die besondere Bedeutung der Universität Göttingen hinweisen, von der wichtige Impulse für die Personalunion und ihre Kommunikationsnetzwerke ausgingen. Zugleich verdeutlichen die Aufsätze, dass sowohl Großbritannien als auch das Kurfürstentum Hannover aus heterogenen Landesteilen bestanden und dass stets der Kontext des sich wandelnden Europas des 18. Jahrhunderts gesehen werden muss. Der Sammelband beruht auf den Vorträgen, die im Rahmen der Ringvorlesung des Wintersemesters 2013–2014 an der Universität Göttingen gehalten wurden.

Abstract

The study centers on the presentation of the North American borderlands in the works of Canadian Native writer Thomas King’s Truth & Bright Water (1999), American writer Howard Frank Mosher’s On Kingdom Mountain (2007), and American writer Jim Lynch’s Border Songs (2009). The three authors describe the peoples and places in the northeastern, middle and northwestern border regions of the USA and Canada. The novels address important border-oriented aspects such as indigeneity, the borderlands as historic territory and as utopian space, border crossing and transcendence, post-9/11 security issues, social interaction along the border, and gender specifics. The interpretation also examines the meaning of border imaginaries, border conceptualizations, and the theme of resistance and subversion.

Abstract

Recent results from the most important sites of the Late Middle Kingdom and the Second Intermediate Period (Edfu, Tell el-Dab'a and Abydos) have broadened our knowledge of the situation in Egypt enormously. Of utmost importance in this context are the sealing impressions from Edfu and Tell el-Dab’a bearing the name of the Hyksos ruler Khyan and the discovery of the previously-unknown royal tombs of an independent „Abydene” Dynasty in Abydos, which bring new light to bear on our understanding of the political situation in this period.Besides King Apophis, Khyan is one of the most important kings of the 15th Dynasty. However, his chronological position within the 15th Dynasty is not clear. Traditionally he has been assigned to the middle of the 15th Dynasty, but recent results now indicate a dating at the beginning of the 15th Dynasty and an overlap between the 13th and the 15th Dynasty. This new chronological position has far-reaching consequences not only for Egyptian chronology, but also for the chronology of the Mediterranean world. The new finds from Tell el-Dab’a, Edfu and Abydos necessitate a revision of the chronology of Dynasties 13 to 17 in Egypt, and a reconsideration of political and administrative structures during the Second Intermediate Period.The discussions during the workshop were very positive, although a wide range of interpretations of the evidence still remain plausible, especially in respect of the chronological conclusions. These are reflected in the range of contributions to the volume. It is hoped that this publication will stimulate further discussion and research on this important topic.

Abstract

Manuel António Pina (Sabugal, 1943 – Porto, 2012) recebeu o Prémio Camões em 2011, entre vários outros. Licenciado em Direito pela Universidade de Coimbra, exerceu advocacia mas acabou por se decidir pelo jornalismo, que exerceu ao longo de trinta anos no Jornal de Notícias, onde aprimorou o seu estilo, em especial na crónica. Entre a sua estreia poética em livro com Ainda não é o fim nem o princípio do mundo calma é apenas um pouco tarde (1974) e Como se desenha uma casa (2011), publicou uma dúzia de títulos de poesia, por duas vezes reunidos num só volume, primeiro na Afrontamento (1992), depois na Assírio & Alvim (2001). A sua poesia encontra- se traduzida em muitas línguas. Escreveu um único romance, Os papéis de K. (2003). A sua obra direcionada para o público infanto-juvenil é uma das mais importantes da literatura e cultura portuguesas, composta por dezenas de títulos, entre ficções, poemas e textos dramáticos. Foi também ensaísta, destacando-se Aniki-Bóbó, já póstumo (2012).
