Die Relationalität textueller Räumlichkeit
Der Band erkundet die Möglichkeiten t(r)opologischen Denkens und eröffnet damit ein neues Theorieparadigma für die Literaturwissenschaften und darüber hinaus.
Warum ist die Topologie in unserer globalisierten Kultur so zentral? Aus verschiedenen disziplinären Blickwinkeln und mit Fokus auf dem 20. Jahrhundert wird in diesem Band das Topologisch-Werden der Kultur untersucht und mit der sprachlich bedingten Tropologie in ein Verhältnis der reziproken Vermittlung gebracht. Gerade wegen ihrer tropologischen Verfasstheit und der Multiplizität möglicher interner wie externer Bezüge und Strukturierungsmöglichkeiten bieten literarische Texte ein besonderes Medium, um sich der topologischen Frage zu nähern: Wie kann man Relationen vor Elementen und Raum als Relationierung denken?
When Dorothy Hewett joked about needing a face-lift and sex-change to improve her standing, she drew attention to forces that shaped the production and reception of her drama. Drawing on production of her plays over four decades, and interviews with Hewett’s collaborators, this book reveals how cultural memories in theatre solidify and dissolve.
Viewing theatre production as a mode of remembrance, Beaglehole grapples with Hewett as a divisive figure who was ahead of a conservative Australia. Revisiting frequently produced plays, including chapters on The Man from Mukinupin and The Chapel Perilous, as well as rarely-produced works, including Nowhere and The Tatty Hollow Story, this book articulates the ongoing relevance of Hewett’s drama to the history of theatre in Australia.
Dreamwork for Dramatic Writing: Dreamwrighting for Stage and Screen teaches you how to use your dreams, content, form, and structure, to write surprisingly unique new drama for film and stage. It is an exciting departure from traditional linear, dramatic technique, and addresses both playwriting and screenwriting, as the profession is increasingly populated by writers who work in both stage and screen. Developed through 25 years of teaching award-winning playwrights in the University of Missouri’s Writing for Performance Program, and based upon the phenomenological research of renowned performance theorist Bert O. States, this book offers a foundational, step-by-step organic guide to non-traditional, non-linear technique that will help writers beat clichéd, tired dramatic writing and provides stimulating new exercises to transform their work.
Georg Brandes (1842-1927) was one of the leading literary critics in Europe of his time. His Main Currents of Nineteenth Century Literature (1872-1890) was a foundational text to the field of comparative literature and extolled by Thomas Mann as the “Bible of the young intellectual Europe at the turn of the century.” Georg Brandes eventually developed into a truly global public intellectual, living by his pen and public lectures. On the eve of World War I, he was one of the most sought-after commentators, vigorously opposing all conflicting factions. This book seeks to understand Brandes’ trajectory, to evaluate Brandes’ significance for current discussions of literary criticism and public engagement, and to introduce Brandes to an international audience. It consists of 15 original chapters commissioned from experts in the field.
