Informalization and Hybridization of Speech Practices

Polylingual Meaning-Making across Domains, Genres, and Media

Series:

Edited by Amei Koll-Stobbe

Speech practices as discursive practices for meaning-making across domains, genres, and social groups is an under-researched, highly complex field of sociolinguistics. This field has gained momentum after innovative studies of adolescents and young adults with mixed ethnic and language backgrounds revealed that they «cross» language and dialectal or vernacular borders to construct their own hybrid discursive identities. The focus in this volume is on the diversity of emerging hybridizing speech practices through contact with English, predominantly in Europe. Contributions to this collected volume originate from the DFG funded conference on language contact in times of globalization (LCTG4) and from members of the editor’s funded research group «Discursive Multilingualism».

Edited by Allison M. Alford and Michelle Miller-Day

Constructing Motherhood and Daughterhood Across the Lifespan explores the complex dynamics between mother and daughter over the lifespan. The editors believe that these vital family roles are socially and communicatively constructed, shaped, and molded as mothers and daughters navigate, respond to, and negotiate cultural and familial discourses. Aimed at undergraduate students, this timely book includes course activities and discussion questions in every chapter and a complete term syllabus to enhance a professor’s teaching, providing a smooth route for adoption as a course text. The book also builds on and contributes to the critical and theoretical research in family communication, media studies, and gender studies, delving into the nuanced communication surrounding motherhood and daughterhood in the United States.

Annemie Leemans

The topic of this book is practical knowledge in early modern Europe, interpreted widely as recipes containing art procedures or medical panaceas between 1400 and 1700. In this book, the 1) origin or creation, 2) transmission or dissemination, and 3) use or consumption are key subjects for understanding the place of practical knowledge in early modern European society. After a historiographical and theoretical approach, this book applies Deleuze and Guattari’s rhizome metaphor to art technological literature. The first part ends with a study about medical practitioners and mediators who disseminate practical knowledge through the printing press. The second part of the book is entirely dedicated to the booklet A Very Proper Treatise (1573), using a microhistory approach to study it.

Displaced Memories

Remembering and Forgetting in Post-War Poland and Ukraine

Series:

Anna Wylęgała

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.

Das Gebot der Trennung von Polizei und Nachrichtendiensten im Spannungsfeld von Freiheitsschutz und effektiver Gefahrenabwehr

Eine Bewertung des Sicherheitssystems und der Rechtsprechung des Bundesverfassungsgerichts zur Antiterrordatei vor dem Hintergrund der aktuellen Bedrohungslage

Series:

Nora Schneider

Durch die Veränderung der Bedrohungslage weltweit – sowohl durch den technischen Fortschritt als auch durch das besondere Gefährdungspotential des Terrorismus – ist die Anpassung des Sicherheitssystems an die Gegebenheiten unumgänglich. Dabei rückt auch die Kooperation zwischen den Sicherheitsbehörden weiter in den Blickpunkt. Das Bundesverfassungsgericht hat im April 2013 in seinem Urteil zur Antiterrordatei das Bestehen eines informationellen Trennungsprinzips betont, das aus dem Grundrecht auf informationelle Selbstbestimmung hergeleitet wird. In diesem Zusammenhang beschäftigt sich die Autorin unter anderem mit den Fragen der Erforderlichkeit der Trennung von Polizei und Nachrichtendiensten sowie deren Vereinbarkeit mit der Gefahrenlage.

This is the first work in English to explore Manchukuo literature in its entirety. It provides comprehensive, in-depth, and thought-provoking research by placing the literary history of Manchukuo from 1937 to 1941 in specific cultural lineages and socio-political contexts and focusing on four major literary groups of that period—the Manshū rōmanha, the Sakubun writers, the Yiwenzhi intellectuals, and the Wenxuan School—to illuminate its underlying intellectual dynamics. As it turns out, Manchukuo literature notably featured multiplicity, ambiguity, and self-reflexivity, which enabled it to transcend the dichotomy of romanticism and realism and that of the colonizers and the colonized. Not unlike a coordinate system, it took modernity and national identity as its horizontal and vertical axes. The Manshū rōmanha and the Sakubun writers respectively adopted an anti-modern or a modernist perspective and unanimously headed towards the intellectual stance of denying their own national identity and merging into the indigenous society of the colony; in comparison, Manchurian intellectuals, as epitomized by the Yiwenzhi School and the Wenxuan School, started from the same purpose of promoting national consciousness, but at last embarked on a bifurcated path to either modernization or cultural regression. Moreover, although the literary writings of these four groups differed much from each other in topics, stylistic features, and narrative modes, they all showed a deep concern for the sufferings of the Manchurian people brought by colonialism, coincidentally directed their criticism or sarcasm against the colonial rule, and thereupon endowed Manchukuo literature with a keynote of darkness.

Andrzej Tuchowski

This book concerns the ways in which many different types of nationalism, chauvinism and racism penetrated into musical thought in the interwar period, and how the leading artistic personalities of that period reacted to these ideologies. The concept of "nationalism" is understood broadly in this book and covers the entire spectrum of its positive and negative aspects. The topics listed in the book’s title have been discussed on the example of selected four countries, significant with respect to population and territory and representing different social-political systems: Germany (mostly after 1933), Italy, Poland (after 1926) and Great Britain. This selection is also representative of the main ethnic groups in Europe: Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Latin-Romance and Slavic.

«… nur Frauen können Briefe schreiben»

Facetten weiblicher Briefkultur nach 1750. Band 1

Edited by Renata Dampc-Jarosz and Paweł Zarychta

Die gegenwärtigen digitalen Formen des Kommunizierens geben zweifelsohne Anlass zu Reflexionen über die Geschichte der Gattung Brief, über Brieftheorien und Briefautor_innen. Diese Voraussetzungen ließen internationale Briefforscher_innen vom 3. bis 5. März 2017 im Gebäude der Jagiellonen-Bibliothek in Kraków zu einer Tagung zusammenkommen und über die Briefentwicklung seit dem 18. Jahrhundert bis zur Gegenwart nachdenken. Diese vertieften Reflexionen finden in den beiden vorliegenden Bänden ihren Niederschlag. Die Aufsätze verbindet das Bestreben, die Ästhetik des weiblichen Briefes aus drei Jahrhunderten einer kulturhistorischen Bilanz zu unterziehen, den Einfluss von gesellschaftlichen und kulturellen Faktoren auf die Entfaltung der weiblichen Briefkultur zu untersuchen sowie die Aufgaben der heutigen Briefedition und den Umgang mit Nachlässen zu erwägen.
