The electronic version of the series Approaches to Translation Studies..

Approaches to Translation Studies is an international series promoting the scholarly study of translation. The notion of plural ‘approaches’ to translation and its study calls up images of scholarly explorers following untrodden paths to translation, or more cautiously (re)tracing the familiar routes. Either way, it indicates a refusal to be tied to dogma or prejudice, a curiosity about possible new vistas, and an awareness that the observer’s view depends on where s/he comes from. But a recognition of the plurality of possible approaches does not necessarily mean passive acquiescence to relativism and scepticism. The idea of ‘approaching’ translation also implies a sense of purpose and direction.

In the context of today’s globalised and pluralised world, this metaphorically suggested perspective is perhaps more relevant than ever before. The series therefore remains fully committed to it, while trying to respond to the rapid changes of our digital age. Ready to travel between genres, media and technologies, willing to span centuries and continents, and always keeping an open mind about the various oppositions that have too often needlessly divided researchers (e.g. high culture versus popular culture, linguistics versus literary studies versus cultural studies, translation ‘proper’ versus ‘adaptation’), the series Approaches to Translation Studies will continue to accommodate all translation-oriented books that match high-quality scholarship with an equal concern for reader-friendly communication.

Approaches to Translation Studies is open to a wide range of scholarly publications in the field of Translation Studies (monographs, collective volumes…). Dissertations are welcome but will obviously need to be thoroughly adapted to their new function and readership. Conference proceedings and collections of articles will only be considered if they show strong thematic unity and tight editorial control. For practical reasons, the series intends to continue its tradition of publishing English-language research. While students, teachers and scholars in the various schools and branches of Translation Studies make up its primary readership, the series also aims to promote a dialogue with readers and authors from various neighbouring disciplines.

Approaches to Translation Studies was launched in 1970 by James S Holmes (1924-1986), who was also one of the ‘founding fathers’ of Translation Studies as an academic discipline. At later stages the series’ editorship passed into the hands of Raymond van den Broeck, Kitty M. van Leuven-Zwart and Ton Naaijkens. Being the very first international series specifically catering for the needs of the fledgling discipline in the 1970s, Approaches to Translation Studies has played a significant historical role in providing it with a much needed platform as well as giving it greater visibility in the academic marketplace.

Studies in Periodical Cultures (SPC) contributes to the bourgeoning field of periodical studies, exploring magazines, newspapers, and other forms of serialized media in (trans)national contexts. Research into periodicals is of high interest to many because of the medium’s pervasiveness and its enmeshment with the formation of cultural identities. This book series considers periodicals as important artifacts, seeking to assess their role for processes of cultural transfer and translation. SPC looks at how periodicals evolve in and through networks of people, material infrastructures, media markets, and changing technologies. Likewise, the community-building potential of periodicals will be considered. SPC wants to determine what function periodicals have as sites of affection, but also as aesthetic and material sources for the arts and literature. The book series produces a much-needed bridge between historical/archival approaches and present work in the field of media studies by highlighting the legacies and trajectories of the periodical business from 18th-century print to the digital age.

SPC invites contributions from a range of disciplines including approaches developed in the humanities and social sciences. Transnational approaches to periodical studies, which provide, among others, fresh insights into foreign language publications, the role of international editions, the ethnic press, and related issues like race, gender, and sexuality are all welcome. SPC also promotes the ‘business turn’ in periodical studies and highlights material and legal frameworks, design, translation, marketing and consumption. It solicits studies about editorial procedures, the distribution, and the reception of periodicals. This book series encourages work about regional, national, and transnational communication networks, investigating, for instance, how rival publications and their interrelated dynamics shape the periodicals’ formal, material, and visual attributes. In practice, SPC proposes to study periodicals less as autonomous objects, but rather as agents embedded in changing historical contexts. SPC thus offers theoretical and methodological approaches to an interdisciplinary, transnational conception of periodical studies, and publishes peer-reviewed volumes in different languages.

Film denken nach der Geschichte des Kinos
Series:  Film Denken
In einem Moment der Mediengeschichte, in dem der Film nicht mehr nur im Kino, sondern in allen Medien auftritt, nimmt der vorliegende Band das Werk des kürzlich verstorbenen französischen Regisseurs Jean-Luc Godard zum Ausgangspunkt für eine vielstimmige Reflexion über die Geschichten und die Zukünfte des Kinos. Wohl mehr als jeder andere Regisseur hat Godard sich bemüht, die Geschichte des Kinos im Medium selbst zu schreiben, etwa in seinem monumentalen Filmessay Histoire(s) du cinéma. Und mehr als jeder andere Regisseur hat Godard immer wieder die Frage gestellt, was nach dem Kino kommt: Wie es mit der Geschichte der Kunst nach dieser »Erfindung ohne Zukunft«, wie Louis Lumière es einmal formulierte, weitergeht. Zugleich schreibt Godard dem Kino im 20. und 21. Jahrhundert eine besondere Rolle der historischen Zeugenschaft zu, was seinem Werk eine Relevanz weit über den Horizont einer Geschichte der Kunstform Film hinaus verleiht.

Mit Beiträgen von Vinzenz Hediger, Philip Ursprung, Lorenz Engell, Rembert Hüser, Adrian Martin, Jacques Aumont, Michael Witt, Regine Prange, Martin Seel, Volker Pantenburg, Raymond Bellour, Nicole Brenez, Daniel Fairfax.
A Critical Contribution to the Didactics of Islamic Religious Education Studies
The empirical study on the broad spectrum of Muslim children in Germany and their relations to God is fundamental for the scientific understanding of the development and formation of their faith. At the same time the findings of this work are also highly relevant for the further development of an academic and empirically based Islamic religious education both in a secular and in a highly individualized society.

The aim of this book is to provide a framework for the life of young believers in a religiously plural society, in which the individual relationship to God and the reflexivity of one's own religion are a decisive prerequisite for preventing radicalization and moral rigidity. This book favors an anthropological shift and an approach that takes the potential of children with their theology and their search for the meaning of life seriously.
Virtuelle Räume bestimmen unsere Kultur heute bereits mehr, als uns bewusst ist. Wir betreten sie sowohl zur Unterhaltung, beim Spielen und Lernen, als auch in der Architektur und in industriellen Arbeitsprozessen. Zugleich steht eine kritisch reflektierende Beschäftigung mit der Ästhetik der simulierten Bildräume, den Prämissen ihres Entstehens und den von ihnen ausgehenden Handlungsangeboten noch weitgehend aus. Zwölf Beiträge aus angewandten Bereichen in Forschung und Technik, experimentellen Ansätzen in Architektur, Kunst und Theater sowie aus theoretisch-historischer Perspektive geben erhellende Einblicke in den kulturell und gesellschaftlich zunehmend bedeutsamen Bereich digitaler Raumkonzepte und virtueller Realitäten und loten deren ästhetischen wie auch performativ-praktischen Potenziale aus.

Christoph Schlingensief und die Tradition
Das enfant terrible und die Tradition? Ein Sammelband widmet sich Christoph Schlingensiefs Umgang mit medialen, ästhetischen und genrehistorischen Traditionslinien.
Die ‚Arbeit am Bild‘ erklärte Christoph Schlingensief retrospektiv zu seinem zentralen ästhetischen Prinzip. Und tatsächlich präsentieren sich seine Projekte gleichermaßen als Bildproduktions- wie Bildzerstörungsmaschinerien. Der vorliegende Sammelband unternimmt eine interdisziplinäre Kontextualisierung des Œuvres und befragt Schlingensiefs Werk konsequent auf seine medien-, kultur- und genrehistorischen Bezüge. In den Fokus rückt damit erstmals in einem umfassenden Sinne Schlingensiefs produktives Verhältnis zur Tradition.
