  • Nach der Sozialgeschichteby Gerhard Lauer; Martin Huber

    De Gruyter 2000; US$ 280.00

    The project of writing a social history of literature is generally held to have exhausted its potential. Yet the general practice of literary studies still encompasses socio-historical issues like the relationship between literary texts and their social environment, studies on the distribution of literature, questions pertaining to the historical and... more...

  • Bildung und Konfessionby Gerhard Lauer; Martin Huber

    De Gruyter 1996; US$ 133.00

    In the last few years, education and nationalization, marginalization and re-integration of religious, social and ethnic groups have been accorded special attention in the research undertaken by a number of different disciplines. In the form of a dialogue between literary and historical studies, the present volume reflects on modernization processes... more...

  • Herder und die Künsteby Elisabeth Décultot; Gerhard Lauer

    Universitätsverlag Winter 2013; US$ 54.89

    Hauptbeschreibung Johann Gottfried Herder spielt eine zentrale Rolle für die Entstehung der Ästhetik und der Kunstgeschichte, die beide zu den grundlegenden geistesgeschichtlichen Neuerungen des 18. Jahrhunderts gehören. Er war nicht nur ein aufmerksamer Leser und Kritiker der wichtigsten Autoren, die sich mit dieser Materie befassten, wie etwa Winckelmann,... more...

  • Grenzen der Literaturby Fotis Jannidis; Simone Winko; Gerhard Lauer

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 196.00

    The concept of "literature" is notoriously vague and defies definition, yet at the same time it is indispensable in an age where traditional subject boundaries are breaking down. This volume discusses possible ways of defining the concept in such a manner that it can be productively deployed heuristically in varied historical and cultural contexts.... more...

  • Die Erfindung des Schriftstellers Thomas Mannby Michael Ansel; Gerhard Lauer; Hans Edwin Friedrich

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 182.00

    Thomas Mann is regarded as the best-known representative of modern German literature. This exceptional status is the result of very conscious work on his own profile. How did Thomas Mann manage to achieve this status as the representative of German literature? Which categories did he use to reflect on his role as a writer? And which alliances or conflicts... more...

  • Rückkehr des Autorsby Fotis Jannidis; Simone Winko; Gerhard Lauer; Matias Martinez

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 224.00

    Theoretical debate has declared the author obsolete. In practice, however, certain usages of the author concept are repeatedly demonstrated as being legitimate. This discrepancy suggests that theoretical reflection on the author fails to do justice to central forms of the scholarly approach to literature. The articles in this volume take both systematic... more...

  • Regeln der Bedeutungby Fotis Jannidis; Simone Winko; Gerhard Lauer; Matías Martínez

    De Gruyter 2003; US$ 210.00

    The volume Regeln der Bedeutung ('Rules of meaning') marks the launch of Revisionen, a projected series of some eight volumes on basic concepts of literary theory. The series aims to reflect on central concepts of literary studies which have become questionable or problematic in the course of recent debates and to open up new perspectives on them in... more...

  • Constantin Brunner im Kontextby Gerhard Lauer; Jürgen Stenzel; Irene Aue-Ben-David

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    The work of the unconventional German Jewish philosopher and social critic Constantin Brunner (1862?1937) has been recently rediscovered by cultural historians.
