Die Relationalität textueller Räumlichkeit
Der Band erkundet die Möglichkeiten t(r)opologischen Denkens und eröffnet damit ein neues Theorieparadigma für die Literaturwissenschaften und darüber hinaus.
Warum ist die Topologie in unserer globalisierten Kultur so zentral? Aus verschiedenen disziplinären Blickwinkeln und mit Fokus auf dem 20. Jahrhundert wird in diesem Band das Topologisch-Werden der Kultur untersucht und mit der sprachlich bedingten Tropologie in ein Verhältnis der reziproken Vermittlung gebracht. Gerade wegen ihrer tropologischen Verfasstheit und der Multiplizität möglicher interner wie externer Bezüge und Strukturierungsmöglichkeiten bieten literarische Texte ein besonderes Medium, um sich der topologischen Frage zu nähern: Wie kann man Relationen vor Elementen und Raum als Relationierung denken?
Literary, Cultural and Political Essays, 2009–2021
Crisis and Criticism is a series of interventions from 2009 to 2021 engaging with the literary, cultural and political responses to the capitalist crisis of 2007–8. Challenging the tendency to treat crisis as natural and beyond human control, this book interrogates our cultural understanding of crisis and suggests the necessity of ruthless criticism of the existing world. While responses to crisis have retreated from the critical, choosing to inhabit apocalyptic fantasies instead, only a critical understanding of the causes of crisis within capitalism itself can promise their eventual overcoming.
Dreamwork for Dramatic Writing: Dreamwrighting for Stage and Screen teaches you how to use your dreams, content, form, and structure, to write surprisingly unique new drama for film and stage. It is an exciting departure from traditional linear, dramatic technique, and addresses both playwriting and screenwriting, as the profession is increasingly populated by writers who work in both stage and screen. Developed through 25 years of teaching award-winning playwrights in the University of Missouri’s Writing for Performance Program, and based upon the phenomenological research of renowned performance theorist Bert O. States, this book offers a foundational, step-by-step organic guide to non-traditional, non-linear technique that will help writers beat clichéd, tired dramatic writing and provides stimulating new exercises to transform their work.
