Marxistische Literaturtheorie im Zeitalter des globalen Kapitalismus
Realismus des Kapitals zeigt die Aktualität marxistischer Literaturtheorie im Zeitalter der Globalisierung.
Anhand von Gegenwartsliteratur und Populärkultur legt diese Untersuchung, die Literaturwissenschaft mit sozialwissenschaftlichen, ökonomiekritischen und psychoanalytischen Ansätzen verbindet, dar, dass Kultur in der Gegenwart in die kapitalistische Produktion integriert ist. Dabei vollzieht Schuller die historische Genese dieses Zustands und den Zusammenhang von Avantgardebewegungen, 1968 und dem Neoliberalismus nach und arbeitet kritisch die Geschichte marxistischer Literaturtheorie auf. Sein Projekt gründet auf den theoretischen Schriften Brechts, bezieht aber auch aktuelle Theoriedebatten, etwa um Mark Fishers Konzept des kapitalistischen Realismus, mit ein. Damit stellt Schuller der aktuellen Theoriemüdigkeit der Geisteswissenschaften einen neuen Begriff von Kultur als Moment des globalisierten Kapitalismus entgegen.
Author: Xiaoping Wang
Combining anatomies of textual examples with broader contextual considerations related with the social, political and economic developments of post-Mao China, Xiaoping Wang intends to explore newly emerging social and cultural trends in contemporary China, and find the truth content of Chinese society and culture in the age of global capitalism.
Through in-depth textual analyses covering a variety of media, ranging from fiction, poetry, film to theoretical works as well as cultural phenomena which mirror social and cultural occurrences and reflect the present ideological proclivities of the Chinese society, this study offers timely interpretations of China in the age of globalization, its political inclinations, social fashions and cultural tendencies, and provides thought-provoking messages of China’s socio-economic and political reality.
El discurso interior en las novelas de Javier Marías: los ojos de la mente ofrece una perspectiva novedosa del universo narrativo de uno de los autores contemporáneos más destacados de España.

El discurso interior en las novelas de Javier Marías: los ojos de la mente offers a fresh perspective on the narrative universe of one of Spain’s most distinguished contemporary authors. In order to delve into the origin and meaning of inner speech modes (psychonarration, monologue or stream of consciousness) in his fictions, this book presents a critic interpretation of all his novels, from El siglo (1983) to Berta Isla (2017).
The concepts of 'youth' and the 'postcolonial' both inhabit a liminal locus where new ways of being in the world are rehearsed and struggle for recognition against the impositions of dominant power structures. Departing from this premise, the present volume focuses on the experience of postcolonial youngsters in contemporary Britain as rendered in fiction, thus envisioning the postcolonial as a site of fruitful and potentially transformative friction between different identitary variables or sociocultural interpellations. In so doing, this volume provides varied evidence of the ability of literature—and of the short story genre, in particular—to represent and swiftly respond to a rapidly changing world as well as to the new socio-cultural realities and conflicts affecting our current global order and the generations to come.
