Diskurse und Figurationen
Der Band versammelt Fallstudien renommierter Autoren aus Kunstgeschichte und Literaturwissenschaft zu den komplexen Bezügen von Bild und Text und zu deren medialer Differenz im 14. Jahrhundert in Italien. Im Fokus steht die Malerei des Trecento mit ihrer neuen Visualisierungskraft, die sich als kommunikatives Potenzial in der Praxis öffentlicher Bildpolitik entfaltet und an eine hohe Komplexität von bildlichen 'Sprachformen' geknüpft ist. Die Bilder erweisen sich als Medien, die an der Schnittstelle zu gesellschaftlichen und politischen Kontexten, aber auch zu visuellen und textuellen Diskursen stehen. Eine wiederkehrende Referenz ist Dantes Divina Commedia mit ihrer enzyklopädisch und zugleich eschatologisch konzipierten Fundierungsprogrammatik. Mit Beiträgen von Hans Belting, Dieter Blume, Michael Cuntz, Andreas Kablitz, Klaus Krüger, Wolf Löhr, Tanja Michalsky, Caroline Smout, Imke Wartenberg und Friederike Wille.

Following the murder of George Floyd in 2020, monuments became a focal point: protestors toppled or spray-painted them, even danced on them. These politically, visually, and emotionally potent events may have looked instantaneous, yet frequently sprang from years of activism, as well as protracted political and academic debate. Toppling Things challenges stereotypical notions monument topplings as riotous, spontaneous, or irrational. Bringing together the ideas and emotions, the uncertainty and convictions, of artists, activists, and academics, the volume rejects a neatly tied-up, distant narrative. As it sheds light on the global, personal, immediate, and historical processes around the fall of a monument, the volume engages directly with the complexity of toppling activism and monument removal as a form of lived experience.
Towards Post-Anthropocentric Concepts of Multiplicity
The global socio-ecological crisis is making it increasingly clear that ‘we’ do not only act in interpersonal social and political relationships, but that non-human forms of life and relationships must also be taken into account in the critical analysis of our present. In light of that realization, this volume opens the question of the crowd towards a post-anthropocentric perspective on multiplicity. Based on speculative readings of works by K. Barad, M. de la Cadena, and C. Vicuña, the essays illuminate how a human-and-more-than-human intra/sectional approach can help deconstruct the western hegemonic framework in contemporary cultural thinking from a transdisciplinary perspective.

Comment une femme pouvait-elle s’affirmer et faire carrière dans le monde du spectacle entre 1650 et 1914 ? Dans une perspective interdisciplinaire, les quinze études réunies dans ce volume apportent des éléments de réponse à travers l’analyse de parcours d’autrices, de compositrices et de performeuses aux profils très variés, actives dans les domaines du théâtre, de la danse et de l’opéra. Ces études proposent une meilleure compréhension et contextualisation des obstacles et préjugés auxquels ces artistes ont dû faire face dans un milieu socio-professionnel majoritairement masculin, ainsi qu’une interprétation analytique des stratégies artistiques et discursives mises en place pour les surmonter. Il en ressort une approche renouvelée et une meilleure connaissance de notre matrimoine culturel.

The Second and Third Generation have become increasingly active in remembering and researching their families’ pasts, especially now that most refugees from National Socialism have passed away. How was lived experience mediated to them, and how have their own lives and identities been impacted by persecution and flight?
This volume offers a valuable insight into the personal experience of the Second Generation, as well as a perceptive analysis of film, art, and literature created by or about the subsequent generations. Recurring themes of silences, transferred trauma, postmemory, and “roots journeys" are explored, revealing the distance, connection, and collaboration between the generations.

Fredrika Bremer (1801–1865) reached out to the world beyond her native Sweden. Her promotion of women’s emancipation was celebrated and pursued by Sophie Adlersparre (1823–1895), Rosalie Olivecrona (1823–1898), and Alma Åkermark (1853–1933). From dreams to projects involving collaboration with Britain, France, and Germany, in translation, literature, and periodical editing, this book unearths exciting transnational connections that contributed to the awakening of the Nordic feminist movement. Shedding light on the circulation of liberal ideas, Marxist theory, and the Nordic debate, the three chapters of the book focus on cultural variation, constructive conflicts, mutual (mis)understandings, and class issues.

Ce volume interroge les conditions de l’interprétation des textes littéraires, à la lumière des propositions de Stanley Fish sur L’autorité des communautés interprétatives (1980): leurs présupposés, leurs compétences et croyances, conditionnent l’activité herméneutique, interrogée ici par des spécialistes de littérature française, espagnole ou comparée. Réfléchir au fonctionnement concret de telles communautés – création, renouvellement, adhésion, dissidence, relation concurrentielle entre communautés, volonté d’imposer une interprétation… –, amène à envisager des implications en termes de libre arbitre et d’individualité essentielles pour nos disciplines, et à repenser les relations entre texte, auteur et lecteurs, parfois en opposant des objections nouvelles aux postulats de Fish, parfois en proposant des alternatives.

Music in the Writings and Imagination of Silesian Humanists explores the sound-world of early modern Silesia via the writings of humanists active there in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries who both observed musical culture and actively participated in it: a poet, a publisher, a pedagogue, a physician, a historian, and a regionalist. Such an approach makes it possible to reconstruct their perceptions and understandings of music—a constitutive element of this community. As these authors concentrated more on the representation of music than the art itself, the book reflects the collective memory of the republic of scholars: their individual and common imaginarium.
