Nach der Einsprachigkeit

Slavisch-deutsche Texte transkulturell

Series:

Diana Hitzke

Postkoloniale Konstellationen lassen sich nicht (mehr) in das Eigene und das Andere, in das Originäre und das Nachgeahmte, in ein Hier und Dort auseinanderdividierenden. Sie sind geprägt von Verflechtungen, Hybri-disierungen und wechselseitigen Aneignungsprozessen. In diesem Band analysiert die Autorin Texte von Jurij Brězan, Irena Brežná, Mascha Dabić, Róža Domašcyna, Olga Grjasnowa, Barbi Marković, Olga Martynova und Aleksandar Tišma. Sie zeigt auf, dass alle Werke sich mit multiplen Zuge-hörigkeiten, Mehrsprachigkeit und Übersetzung auseinandersetzen. Die Texte dekonstruieren Grenzen sprachlicher und kultureller Zugehörigkeit, thematisieren aber auch Diskriminierung, Rassismus und Antisemitismus. Damit beschreiben sie mehrsprachige Welten jenseits von hegemonialer Einsprachigkeit.

Cie Yan Duyvendak

Series:

Edited by Paola Gilardi, Delphine Abrecht, Anne Fournier and Andreas Klaeui

Yan Duyvendak ist ein Grenzgänger: zwischen den Sparten und zwischen den Genres. Zwischen bildender Kunst, Performance, Theater und sozialer Interaktion. Ein «Spieler des Realen», den der vorliegende Band mit kritischen Analysen und Berichten von Weggefährten würdigt.

Yan Duyvendak est passeur de frontières entre les disciplines et les genres. Entre art visuel, performance, théâtre et interactions sociales. Un «joueur du réel» auquel cet ouvrage rend hommage grâce à des analyses critiques et à des récits de complices de route.

Yan Duyvendak è un attraversatore di confini: fra le discipline e fra i generi. Fra le arti visive, la performance, il teatro e l’interazione sociale. Un artista che «gioca con il reale», a cui questo volume rende omaggio tramite saggi critici e i resoconti di compagni di viaggio.

Yan Duyvendak crosses borders: of artistic discipline and genre. Of visual art, performance, theatre and social interaction. In tribute to an artist who «deals with the real», this volume contains critical analyses and reports by those who have joined him along his journey.

Psychoanalysis – the Promised Land?

The History of Psychoanalysis in Poland 1900–1989. Part I. The Sturm und Drang Period. Beginnings of Psychoanalysis in the Polish Lands during the Partitions 1900–1918

Series:

Paweł Dybel

The book is the first systematic study of the beginnings of psychoanalysis on Polish lands in Galicia (Austria-Hungary) and Congress Poland (Russia) during the partitions of Poland in the years between 1900 and 1918. The birth of the movement was presented on a broad cultural background, as an element of the assimilation processes among Polish Jews. At the same time, Freud's and Jung's theories began to gain popularity in Polish medical, philosophical, artistic and literary circles. By 1918, over a dozen articles on psychoanalysis had been published in Polish scientific and philosophical journals. Freud himself was vitally interested in this process, sending Ludwig Jekels to Krakow in the role of – as he wrote – an "apostle" of his theory in the circles of the Polish intelligentsia.

Parcours de vie et mémoires de pauvres

Changements personnels et sociohistoriques dans les bidonvilles de Mumbai

Series:

Aude Martenot

Cette thèse s’inscrit dans la perspective du parcours de vie, sous l’angle du regard porté sur les changements personnels et sociohistoriques de l’existence, dans un contexte culturel précis, celui de l’Inde urbaine moderne. Au travers de la récolte de plus de 1250 interviews, réalisées à Mumbai en 2012 et 2014 parmi des adultes âgés de 20 à 86 ans, habitant·e·s de bidonvilles et d’immeubles de classe moyenne inférieure, le contenu et la temporalité des événements vécus considérés comme importants par les répondant·e·s sont analysés. Outre le souci évident d’observer les trajectoires et les moments marquants de la vie, selon le point de vue des personnes elles-mêmes, cette thèse cherche à dépasser l’a priori selon lequel les habitant·e·s des slums seraient vulnérables par évidence, afin de révéler des vulnérabilités insoupçonnées, présentes sous des formes diverses.

Multilingualism is a phenomenon that has become increasingly visible in popular cinema and thus is currently a very novel object of academic inquiry. The present volume is a cutting-edge collection of cross- and transdisciplinary takes on this phenomenon and its different aspects. Its topics range from translation theory to political and aesthetic quandaries of audiovisual translation and subtitling, to narratological function of multilingualism in fiction, to language ideologies and language poetics onscreen. Its authorship is a worldwide body of perspectives, whose contributions span a distinctive collection of international, national and regional film traditions.

This book discusses the scope and development of the science of language evolution – a newly emergent field that investigates the origin of language. The book is addressed to audiences who are not professionally involved in science and presents the problems of language origins together with introductory information on such topics as the theory of evolution, elements of linguistic theory, the neural infrastructure of language or the signalling theory.

Learning and memory processes are basic features of human existence. They allow us to (un)consciously adapt to changes in our social and physical environment in a variety of ways and may have been a precursor for survival in human evolution. Through several reviews and original work the book focuses on three key topics that enhanced our understanding of the topic in the last twenty years: first, the role of real-time auditory feedback in learning, second, the role of motor aspects for learning and memory, and third, representations in memory and the role of sleep on memory consolidation.

Language and Belonging

Local Categories and Practices in a Guatemalan Highland Community

Series:

Rita Vallentin

In this book, the author introduces belonging from a sociolinguistic perspective as a concept that is accomplished in interaction. Belonging can be expressed linguistically in social, spatial and temporal categories – indexing rootedness, groupness and cohesion. It can also be captured through shared linguistic practices within a group, e.g. collectively shared narrative practices. Using conversation analysis and an analysis of narrative as practice bolstered with ethnographic knowledge, the author shows how belonging is tied to locally contextualized use of deictics and to collectively shared narrations of the past in a Guatemalan community. The book examines the understudied phenomenon of belonging at the intersection of pragmatics and linguistic anthropology.

The Poetry of Wisława Szymborska

Series:

Wojciech Ligęza

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the entirety of Wisława Szymborska’s poetic oeuvre. The author employs in-depth historical reflection on Szymborska’s beginnings to reveal that – without describing her post-war beginnings and reflecting on her early entanglement in socialist realist newspeak – Szymborska’s mature anti-dogmatic attitude will remain unclear. The book shows how Szymborska’s rhetoric and stylistics – figures of reservation, negation, contradiction, tautology, and repetition – are closely connected with the construction of the poetic world and affect the shape of her messages. After all, Wisława Szymborska is a poet of sophisticated wit, a surprising freedom of expression, and an unusual game with various literary styles, even with colloquial Polish.

Regionale Erzeugnisse aus Deutschland

Rahmenbedingungen und Perspektiven aus wirtschaftlicher und rechtlicher Sicht

Series:

Friedrich-Philipp Becker

Seit geraumer Zeit werden verstärkt regionale Erzeugnisse aus Deutschland beworben. Der Autor greift diesen Umstand auf und befasst sich mit der Frage, welche wirtschaftlichen, umweltbezogenen sowie rechtlichen Rahmenbedingungen und Perspektiven für ebenjene regionale Erzeugnisse bestehen. Dabei erfasst er schwerpunktmäßig unionsrechtliche Vorgaben. Er überprüft auch, inwiefern Werbekampagnen mitgliedstaatlicher und privatwirtschaftlicher Natur für regionale Erzeugnisse protektionistisches, die Warenverkehrsfreiheit in der EU beschränkendes Potential haben. Abschließend zeigt der Autor Möglichkeiten zur Erhöhung der Transparenz bei der regionalen Produktherkunftsangabe auf.
