Der Massenmensch zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts

Ein diskursgeschichtlicher Vergleich zur deutschen und spanischen Literatur

Series:

Charlotte Jestaedt

Die Studie befasst sich mit der Frage, welche Wissensstrukturen in Bezug auf das Phänomen der Masse in Deutschland und Spanien vor den faschistischen Regimes präsent waren. Mit ihrer diskursanalytisch und komparatistisch angelegten Untersuchung zeigt die Autorin, dass die Spannungen zwischen Individuum und Masse sowohl für den wissenschaftlichen als auch für den literarischen Diskurs konstitutiv waren. Sie arbeitet die Querbezüge zwischen der Masse-Semantik in theoretischen Texten und in Kriegs- und Großstadtromanen heraus. Dabei rücken kulturraumübergreifende und kulturraumspezifische Ausprägungen sowie die Frage nach einem möglichen transnationalen spanisch-deutschen Diskurs in den Blick

Museums go International

New strategies, new business models

Series:

Rebecca Amsellem

Museums are increasingly developing international strategies to raise their profiles outside of their home markets. How can we define this trend? This book is based on a multiple correspondence analysis of a database populated by the results of a survey conducted by the author on international museums. The study reveals that museums fall into four categories regarding their internationalization strategies and can have two complementary international strategies: one geared toward economic profitability and one geared toward the preservation of heritage. However, traditional business models for museums are currently facing challenges from a decline in public subsidies, uncertainty surrounding private donations and stagnant ticket sales. The author argues that the internationalization of museums is having an impact on the historical models and is contributing to the evolution of these business models. Two case studies, of the Victoria & Albert Museum (London, UK) and the Musée des Arts et Métiers (Paris, France), provide particular insights into the international characteristics and practices of museums.

Postcolonial Nation and Narrative III: Literature & Cinema

Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau and São Tomé e Príncipe

Edited by Ana Mafalda Leite, Hilary Owen, Ellen Sapega and Carmen Tindó Secco

This volume investigates literary and cinematographic narratives from Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau and Sao Tome and Principe, analysing the different ways in which social and cultural experience is represented in postcolonial contexts. It continues and completes the exploration of the postcolonial imaginary and identity of Portuguese-speaking Africa presented in the earlier volume Narrating the Postcolonial Nation: Mapping Angola and Mozambique (2014).

Memory, history, migration and diaspora are core notions in the recreation and reconceptualization of the nation and its identities in Capeverdian, Guinean and Saotomean literary and cinematographic culture. Acknowledging that the idea of the postcolonial nation intersects with other social, political, cultural and historical categories, this book scrutinizes written and visual representations of the nation from a wide range of inter- and transdisciplinary perspectives, including literary and film studies, gender studies, sociology, and post-colonial and cultural studies. It makes a valuable contribution to current debates on postcolonialism, nation and identity in these former Portuguese colonies.

Quand Jacques et Paul se paraphrasent

Étude d'intertextualité entre 1 Corinthiens, Jacques et Romains

Series:

Jean-Baptiste Stern

Ce livre est une étude comparative, essentiellement lexicologique, de trois épîtres du Nouveau Testament : I Corinthiens, Jacques et Romains. La première partie rouvre le débat autour de Jacques, considéré, surtout depuis la Réforme luthérienne, comme peu conforme, sous certains aspects, à la doctrine paulinienne. L’examen des sources et de l’intertextualité permet sur ce point d’avancer de nouvelles hypothèses. La deuxième partie, qui met en parallèle Jacques et I Corinthiens, montre que le premier texte suppose une connaissance du second. Dans la troisième partie en revanche, où l’on confronte Jacques et Romains, il semblerait que ce soit l’apôtre Paul qui, pour un écrit jugé majeur, ait effectué des emprunts et subi des influences. Cette passionnante dynamique textuelle, fondée sur des interférences et similitudes, se comprend mieux si l’on tient compte des pratiques d’écriture du temps, et en particulier de la technique de la paraphrasis, propre à la rhétorique antique.

Sci-Fi

A Companion

Edited by Jack Fennell

What is Sci-Fi?

Science fiction is a non-realist genre that foregrounds a sense of material plausibility, insisting that despite seeming outlandish, it is consonant with history and the laws of nature. By turns subtle and bombastic, sci-fi revels in discovery and revelation, whether through human ingenuity or world-altering paradigm shifts. The same impulse informs both the idealism of Star Trek and the existential terror of Frankenstein.

Each chapter of this book examines a specific trope or theme through a different critical lens – including eco-criticism, feminism and historicism – while also providing a historical overview of the genre, from its disputed origins to the pulp era, the New Wave, and the exponential growth of Afrofuturism and Indigenous Futurisms. Revered masters such as Isaac Asimov, Octavia Butler and Iain M. Banks are considered alongside newer talents, including Rebecca Roanhorse and N. K. Jemisin. Other chapters provide overviews of different media, from television (Doctor Who, Westworld) to comics/manga (2000AD, Métal Hurlant), video games (Deus Ex: Human Revolution) and theatre (Alistair McDowall’s X).

Sci-Fi: A Companion not only provides an accessible introduction to sci-fi for general readers and researchers alike, but also illuminates new approaches to a familiar genre.
