Christian-Muslim Relations, a Bibliographical History 18 (CMR 18), covering the Ottoman Empire in the period 1800-1914, is a further volume in a general history of relations between the two faiths from the 7th century to the early 20th century. It comprises a series of introductory essays and the main body of detailed entries. These treat all the works, surviving or lost, that have been recorded. They provide biographical details of the authors, descriptions and assessments of the works themselves, and complete accounts of manuscripts, editions, translations and studies. The result of collaboration between numerous new and leading scholars, CMR 18, along with the other volumes in this series, is intended as a fundamental tool for research in Christian-Muslim relations.

Sinnliche Wahrnehmung in ästhetischen Traumdarstellungen
Volume Editors: Stephanie Catani and Sophia Mehrbrey
Der Traum stellt eine elementare Körpererfahrung dar, bei der alle Sinne des Menschen stimuliert werden. Die ästhetische Darstellung leiblicher Erfahrungen und sensorischer Wahrnehmung bleibt in Untersuchungen zu ästhetischen Traumdarstellungen bislang weitgehend unbeachtet. Der vorliegende Band bietet mit 16 Aufsätzen aus den Literatur-, Medien-, Musik- und Kunstwissenschaften einen transeuropäischen wie auch diachronen Überblick, der sich von Caravaggio über Shakespeare bis zu Baudelaire erstreckt. Auch weniger kanonische Autor:innen und Genres, wie der Horrorfi lm, Kinderliteratur oder die Romane von Margaret Atwood werden in Hinblick auf die Darstellung synästhetischer Traumerfahrungen untersucht.
Beyond World Literature
Author: Ottmar Ette
Beginning with Erich Auerbach’s reflections on the Goethean concept of World Literature, Ottmar Ette unfolds the theory and practice of Literatures of the World. Today, only those literary theories that are oriented upon a history of movement are still capable of doing justice to the confusing diversity of highly dynamic, worldwide transformations. This is because they examine transareal pathways in the field of literature. This volume captures literary processes of exchange and transformation between the Mediterranean, Atlantic and Pacific as well as the interplay of different ways of narrating space and time. Thus, this volume speaks from a fractal point of view and unfolds multiple perspectives. Literatures of the World allows the reader to think in different logical frameworks at the same time, therefore shaping our future on the basis of the diversity of humankind.

Journal for African Culture and Society
Matatu is a journal on African literatures and societies dedicated to interdisciplinary dialogue between literary and cultural studies, historiography, the social sciences and cultural anthropology.
Matatu is animated by a lively interest in African culture and literature (including the Afro-Caribbean) that moves beyond worn-out clichés of “cultural authenticity” and “national liberation” towards critical exploration of African modernities. The East African public transport vehicle from which Matatu takes its name is both a component and a symbol of these modernities: based on “Western” (these days usually Japanese) technology, it is a vigorously African institution; it is usually regarded with some anxiety by those travelling in it, but is often enough the only means of transport available; it creates temporary communicative communities and provides a transient site for the exchange of news, storytelling, and political debate.
Matatu is firmly committed to supporting democratic change in Africa, to providing a forum for interchanges between African and European critical debates, to overcoming notions of absolute cultural, ethnic, or religious alterity, and to promoting transnational discussion on the future of African societies in a wider world.
Matatu will be published as journal as of 2016. All back volumes are still available in print.

Brill’s Companion to Classics in the Early Americas illuminates the remarkable range of Greco-Roman classical receptions across the western hemisphere from the late fifteenth to the early nineteenth century. Bringing together fifteen essays by scholars working at the intersection of Classics and all aspects of Americanist studies, this unique collection examines how Hispanophone, Lusophone, Anglophone, Francophone, and/or Indigenous individuals engaged with Greco-Roman literary cultures and materials. By coming at the matter from a multilingual transhemispheric perspective, it disrupts prevailing accounts of classical reception in the Americas which have typically privileged North over South, Anglophone over non-Anglophone, and the cultural production of hegemonic groups over that of more marginalized others. Instead it offers a fresh account of how Greco-Roman literatures and ideas were in play from Canada to the Southern Cone to the Caribbean, treating classical reception in the early Americas as a dynamic, polyvocal phenomenon which is truly transhemispheric in reach.
Mit James Cook und Herman Melville im Pazifik
Blick ins Buch
Zwischen Adventure und Resolution Island liegt (auf dem Ausschnitt einer Karte, der auf der Vorderseite dieses Buches zu sehen ist) Doubtfull Island – und dies kann als Allegorie des vorliegenden Buches dienen: Zur Debatte steht, wie sich, mit den Namen der Schiffe von James Cooks zweiter Weltumseglung, nach denen auch diese Inseln benannt sind, Abenteuer und Rasterung zueinander verhalten. Oder: Unter welchen Umständen können voyages – und zwar Reiseerzählungen mehr als Reisen ›selbst‹ – abenteuerlich sein? Diese Frage wird hier, nach einer ersten allgemeinen Sondierung, anhand von verschiedensten Texten, von Logbüchern bis zu Romanen, beantwortet, die vor, während und nach zwei Reisen hergestellt wurden: im Rahmen eben von Cooks zweiter Weltumseglung (1772–75) sowie im Gefolge von Herman Melvilles individuell unternommener, ausdrücklich mit Cooks Reisen kontrastierter Pazifikreise (1841–44).
by Abdulrazak Gurnah, Viet Thanh Nguyen, and Luis Alberto Urrea
Transnational writers are increasingly opposed to representations of refugees, exiles, migrants, and their descendants as emblematic victims. With the rise of populist nationalisms in the USA and the UK in the eras of Trumpism, Brexit, and their aftermath, targets of nationalist groups have increasingly been represented, and thus constituted, as individual suffering victims. Certain groups embrace such representations. They use them to secure help and protection for themselves. Less scrupulous individuals may even embrace these representations to elide their own accountability and further nefarious goals. This book examines an intriguing selection of writers to show how they are attempting to recalibrate such stories to reject victimhood. It explores how just memory is deployed to ascribe agency to transnational characters.
Vergleichende Studien zum Traum als Erzählverfahren
Blick ins Buch
Dieses Buch präsentiert und analysiert literarische Träume der Shoah aus einer wissenspoetischen Perspektive. Ob in unmittelbarer Nähe zu den Konzentrationslagern oder aus der Distanz heraus entstanden; ob von Überlebenden selbst oder von den Nachgeborenen verfasst: Indem Christiane Solte-Gresser Traumnotate, Träume in Autobiographien und Traumfiktionen zueinander in Beziehung setzt, wird ein eindrückliches Spektrum an Erzählweisen sichtbar, mit denen sich bekannte wie bislang kaum beachtete Autorinnen und Autoren über den Traum schreibend der Shoah annähern.
Die Vieldeutigkeit und Widersprüchlichkeit des Traums, sein unsicherer Wirklichkeitsstatus, die übermächtigen sinnlichen und leiblichen Wahrnehmungen im Traumerleben und der ästhetische Eigensinn, der des Nachts Erfahrungen und Reflexionen in beunruhigende Bilder verdichtet, machen den Traum zu einem Erzählverfahren, mit dem die Grenzen des Darstellbaren ausgelotet werden. So lassen sich die erzählten Shoah-Träume auch als eine kritische Reflexion über das vieldiskutierte Problem der ›Unsagbarkeit‹ lesen. In ihnen scheint ein Wissen aufgehoben, das geborgen und weitergegeben werden will – und das auf anderem Wege kaum zugänglich oder vermittelbar ist.
