Geschichte ordnen – L’Histoire mise en ordre

Interdisziplinäre Fallstudien zum Begriff «Generation» – Études de cas interdisciplinaires sur la notion de « génération »


Edited by Catherine Mazellier-Lajarrige, Ina Ulrike Paul and Christina Stange-Fayos

«Generation» ist in Frankreich und Deutschland ein inflationär gebrauchter Alltagsbegriff. Als Modewort lenken «génération Macron» oder «Generation beziehungsunfähig» Aufmerksamkeit auf scheinbar bedeutsame gesellschaftliche Gruppierungen oder Phänomene. Der wissenschaftlich präzisierte Kollektivbegriff «Generation» dieses Bandes wird auf politisch-gesellschaftliche Bewegungen und Institutionen, auf stilbildende Zeitschriften und künstlerische Strömungen und nicht weniger auf deren prägende Einzelpersönlichkeiten und ihre Netzwerke angewandt.

« Génération » est aujourd’hui un terme largement galvaudé en Allemagne comme en France. Des expressions à la mode comme « génération Macron » ou « génération Tanguy » focalisent l’attention sur des groupes ou des phénomènes sociétaux qui semblent dignes d’intérêt. Dans ce volume, cette notion générique est précisée dans son acception scientifique pour analyser des phénomènes et institutions socio-politiques, ainsi que des mouvements ou tendances artistiques à travers quelques-uns de leurs personnalités marquantes et leurs réseaux.

The Irish immigrants who arrived in Argentina between 1840 and 1890 were welcomed. Argentina was different from the English-speaking destinations familiar to other Irish emigrees: the historical antagonism between Catholicism and Protestantism was absent, and Irish immigrants were spared the discrimination experienced by those who settled in America. Argentina was regarded as part of Britain’s «informal empire», and the Irish benefitted economically and socially from being designated ingleses. The co-incidence of interest that developed between Irish-Argentines and British and American capital produced an economically successful community that was keen to protect its social status.

This book is the first comprehensive analysis of the Irish-Argentine community in a hundred years. Using the archive of the Southern Cross, the Irish-Argentine newspaper, it analyses the divisions that opened up in this community as it responded to 1916, the two World Wars, Peronism, the military dictatorship, and the Falklands/Malvinas war.

For generations the Southern Cross reflected and reinforced the conservative values of the community. But in 1968 a new editor would challenge the community over its failure to live up to what he considered to be the essence of being Irish: support for human rights and empathy with the poor.

Reading Colour

George, Rilke, Kandinsky, Lasker-Schüler


Rey Conquer

Colour is a problem for poetry, where – unlike in painting, sculpture or film – it
is marked by its absence. This absence raises questions that have often been
overlooked in the study of colour: how do writers navigate the invisibility of
colour in text? What aesthetic commitments do certain attitudes to colour
expose? And how, in the face of its absence, do we read colour?

This ambitious and exciting study addresses these questions, analysing the
use of colour language in the work of Stefan George, Rainer Maria Rilke,
Wassily Kandinsky and Else Lasker-Schüler to tease out how these poets
understood poetic production, and how they negotiated the relations between
poem, reader and world. Covering the poetry, prose, translation, literary and art
criticism and theory of these and other writers central to European literature
at the turn of the twentieth century, Reading Colour sheds new light on poetic
practice of the period, but also uses colour to open up an understanding of
how poetic language works, and to ask how we read poetry.

This book was the winner of the 2018 Early Career Researcher Prize in German
Studies, a collaboration between the Institute for German Studies at the
University of Birmingham and Peter Lang.

Stains / Les taches

Communication and Contamination in French and Francophone Literature and Culture


Edited by Zoe Angelis and Blake Gutt

This volume explores and challenges the extensive possible meanings and semantic connotations of the stain, including dirt, blood, dye, clue, symptom, shadow, smudge, memory, crack, trace and blindspot. The roles, functions, workings and unworkings of stains are interrogated across a range of disciplinary areas in French and Francophone literature and culture. The collection provides a theoretical framework for the significance of the stain in interpretation across a wide range of disciplines as well as offering close readings of films, photographs, paintings and literary texts in which the figure of the stain appears. In this respect, the following key notions are addressed and reconfigured: presence and absence, obscurity, visibility and legibility, form(lessness) and (non)representation, the (non)human and the animal, language and materiality, experience and knowledge, suffering and healing, remembering and forgetting. In parallel, the collection offers innovative readings of the work of key thinkers, examining how Barthes, Proust, Bataille, Camus and others engage with the topic of stains. This volume presents the stain as a powerful critical tool which complicates and contaminates historical, ethical, aesthetic and methodological boundaries. The essays celebrate the productive potential of the stain as an oblique means of accessing and uncovering significant and unexpected continuities and discontinuities.

The presented overview is an attempt to identify the ongoing changes in the landscape of Polish audiovisual translation (AVT) audiences watching longer video formats online, and thus to further the research in the area of cognitive performance. The objective of this book is twofold. First, it aims to identify viewing styles, preferences, and expectations of Polish viewers towards watching American humorous productions deeply rooted in source culture with modes of AVT proper. Second, and partly as a by-product, it attempts to offer a combination of methodological tools for further exploration of eye-tracking in AVT studies, triangulating this technology with various research tools (e.g. online questionnaires) to provide a feasible and reliable data analysis. The detailed findings prove that both the AVT and the audiences in Poland indeed change – and as such, the ongoing shifts should be closely examined to initiate a wider and more inclusive discussion about what audiovisual translation of the 21st century should be like.

In recent years, the terms "ethics," "politics," "performativity," and "experience" have proliferated throughout the discourse of the humanities. However, it is rarely noted that their contemporary understanding has been shaped by the works of Jacques Derrida, who has employed all these concepts since the mid-1960s. The aim of this book is to present the lesser discussed topics of Derrida’s thought – not only as the creator of a specific mode of interpretation called "deconstruction" but also as an initiator of recent ethical and political reflection, a pioneer of performatics, and a precursor of current research on experience. At the same time, the book provides a panorama of the most important changes in the humanities of the last thirty years, and in particular – the ethical, performative, and empirical turns.

Displaced Memories

Remembering and Forgetting in Post-War Poland and Ukraine


Anna Wylegała

The book is a comparative case study of collective memory in two small communities situated on two Central-European borderlands. Despite different pre-war histories, Ukrainian Zhovkva (before 1939 Polish Żółkiew) and Polish Krzyż (before 1945 German Kreuz) were to share a common fate of many European localities, destroyed and rebuilt in a completely new shape. As a result of war, and post-war ethnic cleansing and displacement, they lost almost all of their pre-war inhabitants and were repopulated by new people. Based on more than 150 oral history interviews, the book describes the process of reconstruction of social microcosm, involving the reader in a journey through the lives of real people entangled in the dramatic historical events of the 20th century.

Extraterritoriale Asylverfahrensstandorte

Neue Wege in der Europäischen Flüchtlingspolitik


Nora Schmidt

Eindrücklich hat uns zuletzt die Flüchtlingskrise 2015 vor Augen geführt, dass die Migrationsfrage eine der zentralen Herausforderungen unserer Zeit ist. Trotz des aktuell deutlich gesunkenen Migrationsaufkommens nach Europa bleibt die Lage volatil und es ist keine Zeit zu verlieren, neue Migrationslösungen zu finden. Hierzu gehören auch die externe Dimension der Asyl- und Flüchtlingspolitik und die Frage nach legalen Einreisemöglichkeiten in die Europäische Union, sowohl aus Gründen der Humanität als auch zur Migrationssteuerung. Hier setzt die Untersuchung der Autorin an. Konkret entwickelt sie ein neues Migrationskonzept durch die Extraterritorialisierung des Asylregimes: Europäische Asylverfahrensstandorte in Afrika, in denen ein gleichwertiges Asylverfahren durchgeführt werden soll.
