Minderheiten in der slawischen Welt

Sprachkontakte und kulturelle Identitäten

Series:

Edited by Anna Kretschmer, Gerhard Neweklowsky, Stefan Michael Newerkla and Fedor Poljakov

Die im Buch versammelten Beiträge stellen Ergebnisse eines internationalen Symposiums zu sprachlichen und kulturellen Identitäten der Slavia im Wandel der Zeit dar und setzen sich vornehmlich anhand zahlreicher Beispiele aus der Geschichte und Gegenwart mit der Rolle slawischer Minderheiten in der Staatenlandschaft Europas auseinander.

Das Buch schließt an den vorangehenden Band 4 der Reihe Philologica Slavica Vindobonensia an und diskutiert aktuelle Ansätze im Bereich der gegenwärtigen slavistischen Forschung zu Mehr- und Minderheiten. Neben theoretischen und methodologischen Fragestellungen werden insbesondere auch philologische und kulturwissenschaftliche Probleme erörtert.

Textimmanente Wahrnehmung bei Gajto Gazdanov

Sinne und Emotion als motivische und strukturelle Schnittstelle zwischen Subjekt und Weltbild

Series:

Ingeborg Jandl

Sinne und Emotion bilden das Prisma jeder Selbst- und Welterfahrung und prägen die im Individuum verankerte Subjektivität. Der russische Emigrationsschriftsteller Gajto Gazdanov (1903-1971) rückt Wahrnehmungen so stark in den Vordergrund, dass die Handlung oft von einem Übermaß an Deskription in den Hintergrund gedrängt wird. Diese Studie beleuchtet Motive sinnlicher und emotionaler Erfahrung unter Berücksichtigung interdisziplinärer Konzepte aus Psychologie, Psychoanalyse, Philosophie und den Naturwissenschaften und fragt nach der Systematik ihrer motivischen Repräsentation, ihrer Wechselbeziehung sowie eines davon abzuleitenden Weltbilds. Das Forschungsfeld eröffnet Zugang zu Mechanismen der empirischen Realität, was auch für andere Disziplinen neue Perspektiven und Erkenntnisse verspricht.

The NEUROGES® Analysis System for Nonverbal Behavior and Gesture

The Complete Research Coding Manual including an Interactive Video Learning Tool and Coding Template

Hedda Lausberg

The NEUROGES® analysis system is an objective and reliable interdisciplinary research tool for analysis of body movement and gesture. The system has been field-tested on more than 500 individuals from cultures of five continents, including healthy adults and children as well as individuals with mental illness or brain damage, and further, on non-human primates.

Following up on the first book on theoretical background of the NEUROGES® system, which was published in 2013, this book contains the complete coding manual for the application of the system in research including an interactive video learning tool with video examples of all NEUROGES® hand movement and gesture types, training videos, and a template file for the Multimedia Annotator ELAN.

Forfatterens individuelle estetikk i gjendiktning

Wisława Szymborska og Czesław Miłosz i norske oversettelser

Series:

Aleksandra Wilkus-Wyrwa

The book poses a question about the functioning of the individual aesthetic features of a writer in the translation. The author examines this multi-faceted problem from the comparative perspective, analyzing the poetry of Wisława Szymborska and Czesław Miłosz translated to the Norwegian language. Two novel analytical models were used, first based on the Walter Benjamin’s concept of aura and the second based on the poet-translator’s phenomenon.

Szymborska’s translators had a lot of problems with the lexical-semantic and cultural code contained in her poetry. On the other hand, Paal Brekke, an influential Norwegian writer, applied in his translations of Miłosz’ poetry many solutions closely related to his own literary aesthetics, thus changing the original form of the poems.

Normative democratic theory does not lie securely above societal argumentation but is rather part of it. We need to know not just how the public should ideally reason, but how it actually does or could in better foreseeable circumstances. For the health and the necessary extension of democracy, given general societal and cosmopolitan challenges, fundamentally depends on the reasoning capacities of publics. The concept of the public sphere is intrinsic to understanding this process, but it has long been limited by its division into the twin approaches of normative argumentation in democratic theory and empirical-theoretical application in the social sciences. This book aims to go beyond this entrenched divide to show how democratic theory can become empirically applicable and the social sciences normatively relevant. It does this by linking democratic theory to the theory of society and relating both to a cognitive-communicative account of public culture. The book contributes significantly to exchanges within and between sociology, philosophy, cultural and communication studies, political science, and cognate disciplines. It also addresses a long-established concern of critical theory to combine empirical and normative perspectives to advance the goal of a better society.
