Only Connect: Texts – Places – Politics

Festschrift for Bernd-Peter Lange


Anke Bartels, Reinhold Wandel and Dirk Wiemann

This collection of articles, presented on Bernd-Peter Lange’s 65th birthday, tries to capture some of the manifold domains that he has worked to connect as one of the protagonists in the opening up of German Anglistik to Cultural Studies. The volume proceeds from literature, with the first section offering a variety of readings and rereadings of classic English texts. The subsequent sections focus on the dynamics of inclusion and exclusion that define mainstream and minorities, engage with cultural mobility as well as the various ways in which cultural space is represented and offer a variety of reflections on the relations that pertain between the fields of cultural representation and politics.
The Editors: Anke Bartels teaches English Literature and Cultural Studies at the University of Magdeburg. Reinhold Wandel lectures on the Methodology of Teaching English as a Foreign Language at the same university. Dirk Wiemann teaches English Literature and Postcolonial Studies at the University of Tübingen. All the three editors were students and colleagues of Bernd-Peter Lange’s at various stages of his career.
