    C.H. Beck 2013; US$ 37.12

    Hauptbeschreibung Ferdinand Gregorovius (1821-1891) gehörte bis weit ins 20. Jahrhundert hinein zu den meistgelesenen deutschsprachigen Historikern. Er hat das Italienbild seiner Epoche wesentlichgeprägt.

  • Galdosby Jo LABANYI

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 62.99

  • Konstruktivismus und Romanby Christina Schaefer

    Franz Steiner Verlag 2013; US$ 46.04

    Was veranlasst Alain Robbe-Grillet zu Beginn der 1950er Jahre dazu, einen 'neuen Roman' zu entwerfen? Nicht zuletzt eine neue, im Entstehen begriffene Epistemologie, die sich aus heutiger Sicht als eine konstruktivistische erweist. Mit dem Konstruktivismus teilt Robbe-Grillet eine dezidiert antirealistische Weltsicht, die davon ausgeht, dass die Wirklichkeit... more...

  • Narrative Mutationsby Rudyard Alcocer

    Taylor and Francis 2011; US$ 44.95

    Given the welcomed shift throughout the academy away from essentialist and biologically fixed understandings of "race" and the body, it is a curiosity worth exploring that so many sophisticated-and even radical-narratives retain physical and behavioral heredity as a guiding trope. The persistence of this concept in Caribbean literature informs not... more...
