The Golden Mean of Languages

Forging Dutch and French in the Early Modern Low Countries (1540-1620)

Series:

Alisa van de Haar

In The Golden Mean of Languages, Alisa van de Haar sheds new light on the debates regarding the form and status of the vernacular in the early modern Low Countries, where both Dutch and French were local tongues. The fascination with the history, grammar, spelling, and vocabulary of Dutch and French has been studied mainly from monolingual perspectives tracing the development towards modern Dutch or French. Van de Haar shows that the discussions on these languages were rooted in multilingual environments, in particular in French schools, Calvinist churches, printing houses, and chambers of rhetoric. The proposals that were formulated there to forge Dutch and French into useful forms were not directed solely at uniformization but were much more diverse.

Eros - Wunde - Restauration

Stendhal und die Entstehung des Realismus

Series:

Anna-Lisa Dieter

1814 kehren die bourbonischen Könige nach Frankreich zurück, »um die letzten Wunden der Revolution zu schließen« – Restauration als Projekt der Wundheilung mit den Mitteln der Politik.

Stendhals literarisches Werk leistet dieser Politik Widerstand und macht den Raum der Widersprüche, in dem das Regime der Restauration operiert, ästhetisch produktiv. Den restaurativen Wunsch nach Heilung und Vergessen beantworten seine Romane durch ein Öffnen und Erinnern der durch die Geschichte beigebrachten Wunden. Das Scheitern der Restauration verdichtet Stendhal zu sexuellen Phantasmen. Anna-Lisa Dieter geht diesen Phantasmen auf den Grund und zeichnet die Entstehung des Realismus aus der Abwehr der Restauration nach. Die Restauration tritt aus dem Schatten der Revolution und wird als Schlüsselepoche für die Entwicklung der französischen Literatur im 19. Jahrhundert sichtbar.

The Functions and Use of Roman Coinage

An Overview of 21st Century Scholarship

Series:

Fleur Kemmers

In this publication Fleur Kemmers gives an overview of 21st century scholarship on Roman coinage for students and scholars in the fields of ancient history and Roman archaeology. First, it addresses the study of numismatics as a discipline and the theoretical and methodological advances of the last decades. Secondly, it provides guidelines on how to consult numismatic reference works, including those available online. Recent scholarly approaches and insights in the functions of Roman coins as both vehicles of political communication and instruments for state payments are critically assessed. Furthermore, the publication reviews the evidence for a conscious monetary policy on the part of the Roman authorities. Finally, the impact of Roman expansion and imperialism on monetisation and coin use in Rome´s Empire is discussed.

Edited by Burkhard Schnepel and Tansen Sen

Travelling Pasts, edited by Burkhard Schnepel and Tansen Sen, offers an innovative exploration of the issue of heritage in the Indian Ocean world. This collection of essays demonstrates how the heritagization of the past has played a vital role in processes and strategies related to the making of socio-cultural identities, the establishing of political legitimacies, and the pursuit of economic and geopolitical gains. The contributions range from those dealing with the impact of UNESCO’s World Heritage Convention in the Indian Ocean world as a whole to those that address the politics of cultural heritage in various distinct maritime sites such as Zanzibar, Mayotte, Cape Town, the Maldives, Calcutta and Penang. Also examined are the Maritime Silk Road and the Project Mausam initiatives of the Chinese and Indian governments respectively. The volume is an important contribution to the transdisciplinary fields on Indian Ocean Studies.

Edited by Andrea Albrecht, Christian Benne and Kirk Wetters

Beginnend mit dem Jahrgang 2018 wird das Athenäum – Jahrbuch der Friedrich Schlegel-Gesellschaft gemeinsam von Andrea Albrecht (Universität Heidelberg), Christian Benne (Universität Kopenhagen) und Kirk Wetters (Yale University) herausgegeben. Wie schon das von August Wilhelm Schlegel und Friedrich Schlegel und unter stiller Mitarbeit „weiblicher Federn“ wie Dorothea Schlegel und Caroline Schlegel herausgegebene ursprüngliche Athenaeum strebt auch das neue Athenäum nach weltbürgerlicher „möglichster Allgemeinheit“ und „freiyeste[r] Mittheilung“. Es versteht sich als Organ der Schlegel-Philologie und als Forum für die Romantikforschung in all ihren theoretischen und methodischen Ausdifferenzierungen und Schattierungen.

Baroque

Figures of Excess in Seventeenth-Century European Art and German Literature

Peter J. Burgard

What is the Baroque? Where did it come from and where did it go? Why do we have to ask these questions? Because art historians seem largely satisfied with their answers and most scholars of German literature are not satisfied, yet have stopped asking.
This book discerns in the Baroque an aesthetic phenomenon that crosses both media and national boundaries in its celebration of excess and its disintegration of system, unity, and identity. The compositional principles and theoretical implications of the Baroque, as it first arose in Italian art, find expression in German poetics, drama, poetry, and narrative – expression accessible only through resolute close reading. Readings of Bernini, Borromini, Velázquez, Rubens, Fracanzano, and de Hooch precipitate readings of Opitz, Gryphius, Fleming, Zesen, Hoffmannswaldau, and Grimmelshausen, demonstrating that seventeenth-century German literature both is Baroque and confirms what the Baroque is.

Bild und Latenz

Impulse für eine Didaktik der Bildlatenz

Edited by Anja Pompe

Bilder spielen in allen Schulfächern immer schon eine zentrale Rolle. Die intellektuellen Energien, die in den Bildungs- und Erziehungswissenschaften aufgewendet werden, um Fragen des Einsatzes von Bildern zu beantworten, wirken daher beachtlich.
Eingeklammert bleiben dabei bisher jedoch Phänomene der Unsichtbarkeit, obwohl sie grundlegend für alles Bildliche sind. Denn sie gehören zu jener Dimension, die wir als „latent“ bezeichnen. Eine Auseinandersetzung mit den Funktionen von Bildern in Lehrkontexten kann deshalb nur erfolgreich sein, wenn die philosophischen Debatten über „Latenz“, die zwischen dem Zeitalter der Aufklärung und dem frühen 21. Jahrhundert stattgefunden haben, Eingang in die bildungswissenschaftliche Theoriebildung finden.

Briten in Westfalen 1945-2017

Besatzer, Verbündete, Freunde?

Series:

Edited by Peter E. Fäßler, Andreas Neuwöhner and Florian Staffel

Der Abzug der britischen Streitkräfte aus Westfalen ist eine Zäsur in der Nachkriegsgeschichte. Der Band bietet erstmals einen vertieften Einblick in die Entwicklung der deutsch-britischen Begegnungen und Beziehungen in Westfalen.
Die Aufsätze untersuchen diesen Wandel von der Nachkriegszeit bis in die Gegenwart. Dabei stehen zunächst die verschiedenen Felder der britischen Besatzungspolitik im Fokus. Der zweite Schwerpunkt befasst sich mit der deutschen und britischen Jugend in der Besatzungszeit, bevor dann diverse deutsch-britische Annäherungen bis in die heutige Zeit untersucht werden. Komplettiert wird das Bild durch zahlreiche interdisziplinäre Beiträge zur westfälisch-britischen Besatzungs- und Stationierungsgeschichte.

Research and Development in School

Grounded in Cultural Historical Activity Theory

May Britt Postholm

Research and Development in School: Grounded in Cultural Historical Activity Theory intends to give student teachers, teachers and school leaders research knowledge about which methodologies (research approaches) and methods (data collection and analysis methods) they can use as tools when researching the day-to-day affairs of school and classroom practice. Cultural historical activity theory (CHAT) is presented as the framework. When grounded in CHAT the intention of the research will be to produce useful knowledge whether the aim is to promote development when the research is conducted or incoming development processes. The text is useful in connection with CHAT-informed development work research (DWR), where development work and research are combined in a common project, and in connection with on-going practices in school without the person studying them supporting the on-going development work there and then, but with the intention and understanding that the constructed knowledge can be used in subsequent development processes. This book is also useful for teacher educators/researchers who supervise student teachers or collaborate with practitioners in schools. The wish is that CHAT and its models will be able to contribute to the development processes we want to see in school, which in turn will promote the pupils’ learning outcome.

History, Biography, and the Genre of Luke-Acts

An Exploration of Literary Divergence in Greek Narrative Discourse

Series:

Andrew W. Pitts

Unlike contemporary literary-linguistic configurations of genre, current methodologies for the study of the Gospel genre are designed only to target genre similarities not genre differences. This basic oversight results in the convoluted discussion we witness in Lukan genre study today. Each recent treatment of the genre of Luke-Acts represents a distinct effort to draw parallels between Luke-Acts and a specific (or multiple) literary tradition(s). These studies all underestimate the role of literary divergence in genre analysis, leveraging much—if not, all—of their case on literary proximity. This monograph will show how attention to literary divergence from a number of angles may bring resolution to the increasingly complex discussions of the genre(s) of Luke-Acts.
