Thamyris seeks to initiate alternative forms of criticism by analysing the ways in which cultural and theoretical discourses intervene in the contemporary world. This criticism should pursue a re-politicizing and remobilizing of theoretical perspectives and cultural practices, preferably through case studies. Thamyris hopes to contribute to the productive interaction between art, activism, and theory. We understand cultural practices to include those of literary, visual, digital, and performance arts, but also social practices related to gender, sexuality, and ethnicity. In short, Thamyris aims at exploring the ways in which varying cultural practices, separately or in interaction, can be effective as agents of social and cultural change.
This book's primary task is to test the contemporary value of performance and performativity. Performative Identities in Culture: From Literature to Social Media undertakes this task via a host of chapters on a vast spectrum of performativity-related topics such as: literature (British, American, Welsh), film, art, social media, and sports. Within these contexts, the book raises a number of questions relevant today. How is minority culture constructed and performed in literature? How can one manifest identity in multicultural contexts? How has performativity been transformed in audiovisual media, like film, video games and social media? And, can the digital itself be performative?
Visualität in der literarischen Geschichtsdarstellung
„Geschichte zerfällt in Bilder, nicht in Geschichten“ – so verwies Walter Benjamin bereits 1940 auf die Relevanz von Visualität für die Darstellung von Geschichte. Benjamin hat damit vorweggenommen, was sich in der Folge nicht nur zunehmend im wissenschaftlichen, sondern auch im literarischen Diskurs etabliert hat: Zwischen verschiedenen Medien können Varianten des Zusammenspiels bestehen und besonders die Darstellung vergangener Realität gewinnt durch den textuellen Rekurs auf Visualität an Aussagekraft. Für die Darstellung von Geschichte im postmodernen historischen Roman bietet der Rekurs auf Modi visueller Repräsentation und auf Zuschreibungsmerkmale fotografischer und filmischer Visualität einen signifikanten Mehrwert. Narratologische Aspekte sind bei der Analyse entsprechender Werke ebenso zu beachten wie deren Auseinandersetzung mit den Aporien der traditionellen Historiografie. In diesem Band wird ein hierauf zugeschnittenes Analyse- und Beschreibungsmodell vorgestellt.
Experimental translation has been surging in popularity recently—with avant-garde translation at the combative forefront. But how to do it? How to read it?
Translator, Touretter plays on the Italian dictum traduttore, traditore—“translator, traitor”—to mobilize the affective intensity of Tourettic tics as a practical guide to making and reading avant-garde translations. It smashes the theoretical literature on the sublime from Longinus to Kant into Motherless Brooklyn, both the 1999 novel by Jonathan Lethem and its 2019 screen adaptation by Edward Norton, in order to generate out of their collision a series of models—visual, aural/oral, and kinesthetic—for avant-garde literary translation.
