Abstract

When we think of kinship, we usually think of ties between people based upon blood or marriage. But we also have other ways—nowadays called ‘performative’—of establishing kinship, or hinting at kinship: many Christians have, in addition to parents, godparents; members of a trade union may refer to each other as ‘brother’ or ‘sister’. Similar performative ties are even more common among the so-called ‘tribal’ peoples that anthropologists have studied and, especially in recent years, they have received considerable attention from scholars in this field. However, these scholars tend to argue that performative kinship in the Tribal World is semantically on a par with kinship established through procreation and marriage. Harold Scheffler, long-time Professor of Anthropology at Yale University, has argued, by contrast, that procreative ties are everywhere semantically central, i.e. focal, that they provide bases from which other kinship ties are extended. Most of the essays in this volume illustrate the validity of Scheffler’s position, though two contest it, and one exemplifies the soundness of a similarly universalistic stance in gender behaviour. This book will be of interest to everyone concerned with current controversy in kinship and gender studies, as well as those who would know what anthropologists have to say about human nature.

Abstract

Jurij Trifonov's last great novel "Vremja i mesta", understood by the author to be his most important work, outlines in the experience of epic figures a contemporary historical period: Moscow, in the period from August 1937 to early 1980. Trifonov saw it as the most important task of literature as well as his personally most important task as a writer, "to represent the phenomenon of life and the phenomenon of time".

Abstract

Die vorliegende Arbeit setzt sich zum Ziel, einige Aspekte menschlicher Kommunikation im Hinblick auf ähnliche Verfahrensweisen in den Dramen Čechovs und bei Autoren der Neuen Welle sowie bei deren Nachfolgegeneration eingehend zu analysieren. Ein Vergleich mit zeitgenössischen Dramatikern zeigt die Aktualität und die Neuerungen des Čechovschen Dialogs und die weitreichenden Konsequenzen für dessen Weiterentwicklung bis zu den Dialogformen des Absurden Theaters und verdeutlicht, wie viele Techniken des zeitgenössischen dramatischen Dialogs in den Dramen Čechovs bereits angelegt sind.
