Spektrale und axiale Aspekte der Darstellung von Migration in romanischen Literaturen und Bildmedien des 21. Jahrhunderts bilden den Fokus dieses Bandes. Während sich das Spektrale den doppeldeutigen, unheimlichen und wiedergängigen temporalen Aspekten von Migration annähert, ermöglichen es Achsen, spatiale Dimensionen und Subjektpositionen von Migration in ihrer Dynamik zu erfassen. Welche Gespenster der (kolonialen) Vergangenheit kehren in der Gegenwart wieder? Welche räumlichen Achsen werden in den Migrationsnarrationen erzeugt? Welche medialen Verfahren entstehen in diesem Zusammenhang? Die Beiträge gehen diesen Fragen in lateinamerikanischen und frankokanadischen Literaturen ebenso wie in frankophonen Comics, afrikanischen Spiel- und Kurzfilmen sowie in europäischen Ko-Produktionen wie TV-Serien nach.

Christian-Muslim Relations, a Bibliographical History 21 (CMR 21), covering Southern Europe, 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 21, along with the other volumes in this series, is intended as a fundamental tool for research in Christian-Muslim relations.

The Literary Reception of Herman Hugo's "Pia Desideria" in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth
This book is available in Open Access thanks to the generous support of the Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań

This is the first monographic study of the reception of Herman Hugo's emblematic book "Pia desideria" (1624) in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. It discusses ten different translations and adaptations, showing how the engravings, elegies and exegetical extracts of the original volume were used by Polish-speaking authors (a little space is also devoted to the painting reception of the engravings). The author examines too the reasons for the phenomenon of the volume's popularity, proving that it was determined by the interest of women who did not know Latin, who constituted the most important target group for these numerous and varied Polish adaptations.
One of the defining features of modernism lies in its far-reaching rethinking of the relation between the human and the non-human. In the present volume, this crucial aspect of modernism’s legacy is investigated from an authentically transnational perspective, taking an innovative stance on a diverse range of authors – from posthumanist classics such as Beckett and Woolf to Valentine de Saint-Point, Radoje Domanovic and Aldo Palazzeschi among others.
On the one hand, this collection sheds new light on the modernist contribution to posthumanism, providing a valuable reference point for future studies on the topic. On the other, it offers a new take on the transnational dimension of modernism, highlighting unexplored convergences between modernist authors from several different national contexts.
