Abstract

Dutch cinema, when discussed, is typically treated only in terms of pre-war films or documentaries, leaving post-war fictional film largely understudied. At the same time, a "Hollandse school," a term first coined in the 1980s, has developed through deadpan, ironic films like those of director and actor Alex van Warmerdam. Using seminal theories on humour and comedy, this book explores a number of Dutch films using the notion of categories, such as low-class comedies, neurotic romances, deliberate camp, and grotesque satire. With its original approach, this study makes surprising connections between Dutch films from various decades.

Abstract

Pour Charles Magnin, critique du Globe, le XIXe siècle serait « l’âge de l’esthétique ». Cet ouvrage collectif, centré sur la période romantique, se propose de vérifier cette assertion en étudiant la ruine progressive des poétiques normatives et l’acclimatation en France de cette notion qui fut d’abord allemande. Sous le signe de l’interculturalité, ont été étudiés les modèles germaniques (Schiller, les frères Schlegel, Schelling, Heine), la rémanence d’un sublime de terreur tel qu’il avait é...

Abstract

Incontestablement, le grotesque aujourd'hui fascine. Depuis son origine, on l'a vu franchir les frontières des arts plastiques pour venir s'immiscer en littérature, évoluer à travers les époques, et quelquefois se faire oublier pour mieux ressurgir à certaines périodes critiques de l'Histoire, lorsque, tirant parti de son potentiel contestataire, d'aucuns s'en sont servi comme arme contre la culture dominante. Le fait est que le grotesque, sur le plan anthropologique au sens le plus large, touche diverses dimensions de l'agir humain. Cette publication propose des balises, des repérages ou des essais sur la question, ainsi que des tentatives originales de tester la force d'analyse de cet objet paradoxal qu'est le grotesque, essentiellement pour les études littéraires et philosophiques.

Abstract

Some of the most pressing contemporary issues (ecological crisis, migration and integration, fragmented worldviews, social media, fake news, extremist politics and terrorism) can be understood more profoundly through how they interact with both individual and collective forces of nostalgia. Nostalgia is politics, but these politics are also interwoven with media and culture. Notwithstanding how nostalgia is used or contextualized in terms of politics and social practices, commodification or personal development, its power is primarily situated within its efficacy as a governing, influential human emotion. The vast and luminous contributions to this special issue on contemporary nostalgia are all investigating the role different aesthetic media formats (film, music, literature, computer games) plays in nostalgic negotiations with style, history, migration, love, nationalism, diaspora, irony, modernity, colonial and postcolonial discourses, and adoption. Mutually, these essays stand out as important, original, critical contributions to the expanding field of nostalgia studies and offer a valued insight on our world.
