Transnational and Transmedia Explorations of the American West
This book presents papers by eleven European scholars that explore the ambivalent representations of an American West that follows “no single trajectory, creating instead a series of lines and rhythms, always moving, crossing, and folding” (Neil Campbell).
The papers explore the use of the American West as an ideal or a realistic setting in different cultural productions, ranging from music (“Sing-along Melodies of the West”) to film (“Western Images in Motion”) or comics (“Graphic Representations of the American West”), and including popular cultural fields like podcasts, fashion, and gastronomy (“Performing the West”).
Revisiting Critical Event Narrative Inquiry
This thought-provoking research anthology adopts a postmodern stance and fills in a gap of knowledge for the education of professional development in teacher education, health sciences and the arts. Allowing subjectivity and multiple voices, the authors add to the intimate and negotiated knowledge of being and becoming – indigenous, architect, mother, teacher, health researcher, and supervisor. In fifteen chapters, the authors share knowledge of pain and reward in critical events in the realm of professional identity formation. The book provides a selection of personal and far-reaching stories and adds to the reflexivity of memories of critical events.

Volume Editor:
This publication brings together current scholarship that focuses on the significance of performing arts heritage of royal courts in Southeast Asia. The contributors consist of both established and early-career researchers working on traditional performing arts in the region and abroad. The first volume, Pusaka as Documented Heritage, consists of historical case studies, contexts and developments of royal court traditions, particularly in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The second volume, Pusaka as Performed Heritage, comprises chapters that problematise royal court traditions in the present century with case studies that examine the viability, adaptability and contemporary contexts for coexisting administrative structures.
A Relational View on Artistic Practices from Africa and the Diaspora
The present volume brings together contributions which explore artworks – including literature, visual arts, film and performances – as dynamic sites of worlding. It puts emphasis on the processes of creating or doing worlds, implying movement as opposed to the boundary drawing of area studies. From such a processual perspective, Africa is not a delineated area, but emerges in a variety of relations which can reach across the continent, but also the Indian Ocean, the Atlantic or Europe.

Praktiken und Verfahren des Übens in den Künsten
Künstlerische Produktionsprozesse sind durchzogen von Praktiken, Handlungen und Verfahren, die man als Übungen bezeichnen kann. Der Band Üben üben untersucht die Praxis des Übens auf Probebühnen, in Ateliers, Werkstätten und Übezellen, auf dem Papier, im Kopf und zwischen Körpern im Raum. Übungen zielen auf Selbstbildungsprozesse, durch die das Subjekt ein Verhältnis zu sich selbst und anderen konstituiert. Übungen operieren auf der Schwelle von Disziplin und Überschreitung und haben eine soziale Dimension; sie finden in spezifischen Institutionen statt, deren Normen sie fortschreiben. Zugleich scheinen sie im Widerspruch zur allseitigen Forderung nach Kreativität, Originalität und Individualität zu stehen. Die Untersuchung konkreter Übungsszenarien macht implizite Normen und Ansprüche kenntlich. Erschlossen wird ein transdisziplinäres Forschungsfeld der Theater- und Tanzwissenschaft, der Kulturvermittlung, der Musikpädagogik und der Philosophie.
Author:
From tenth-century South India to twenty-first-century cultural events, from the court assemblies to the public space: Attentive Minds takes you on a journey through the fascinating world of avadhāna, a complex and long-living performative art of India whose practitioners showcase highly developed cognitive skills (like attention, ability to multitask, memory) and specialized knowledge.
With the help of epigraphic and literary sources and field research, Hermina Cielas reconstructs avadhāna’s history in its socio-cultural context and provides a detailed systematization of the art. Her multifaceted study investigates the cultural phenomenon scarcely known outside of India. It explores avadhāna’s multiple forms, from games and puzzles, through a display of mnemonic or motor skills, to multilingual literary feasts.
