Zum Funktionswandel des frühen amerikanischen Romans
Die Bedeutung des frühen amerikanischen Romans für die Ausbildung einer spezifischen Nationalliteratur manifestiert sich nicht erst in der Mitte des 19. Jh., sondern wesentlich früher und vor allem in dessen Fokussierung auf das Oppositionsverhältnis von Geschichte und Fiktion. Mit dieser These zeigt die vorliegende Untersuchung, daß die Umstrukturierung des Romans in der frühen amerikanischen Erzählliteratur (1780–1800) als organisatorisches Zentrum und Katalysator eines komplexen Prozesses fungiert, in welchem die Ordnung der literarischen Diskurse neu bestimmt wird. Anhand von repräsentativen Werken – Romanen von Hugh Henry Brackenridge, Charles Brockden Brown, William Hill Brown, Susanna Haswell Rowson und Royall Tyler – macht die funktionsgeschichtliche Studie die vielfältigen und je eigenen Strategien anschaulich, die frühe amerikanische Autoren entwickelten, um die bis zu diesem Zeitpunkt gültige Funktionsbestimmung der Literatur in Frage zu stellen und anschließend im Roman neu auszuhandeln.

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.
