  • The Other Blacklistby Mary Helen Washington

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 34.99

    Mary Helen Washington recovers the vital role of 1950s leftist politics in the works and lives of contemporary African American writers and artists. While most histories of McCarthyism focus on the devastation of the black list and the intersection of leftist politics and American culture, few include the activities of radical writers and artists... more...

  • The Science of Shakespeareby Dan Falk

    St. Martin's Press 2014; US$ 28.99

    William Shakespeare lived at a remarkable time?a period we now recognize as the first phase of the Scientific Revolution. New ideas were transforming Western thought, the medieval was giving way to the modern, and the work of a few key figures hinted at the brave new world to come: the methodical and rational Galileo, the skeptical Montaigne, and?as... more...

  • Lesermodelle und Lesertheorienby Marcus Willand

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    The theory and practice of literary studies has long been characterized by a virtually unnoticed asymmetry: the striking contrast between an intense effort to create a scientific foundation for the discipline and the equally striking paucity of efforts to systematically incorporate the reader models arising from these positions. This study attempts... more...

  • Filmisches Erzählenby Stephan Brössel

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    Cinematic structures in literature have generally been examined from the perspective of intermediality theory, thereby neglecting some particular features of cinematic narrative.

  • Poetiken des Selbstby Innokentij Kreknin

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    In what ways does literary authorship participate in creating the ?poetics of the self?? Using the works of Goetz, Lottmann, and Herbst, this study applies the insights of autofiction research to develop a set of methodological tools that take into account the nature of today?s media systems. The result is the emergence of a kind of self-poetics that... more...

  • Tintenfass und Teleskopby Andrea Albrecht; Giovanna Cordibella; Volker Remmert

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    This volume explores the image of Galileo Galilei?s as a scientist of the early modern age along with cultural perceptions of his discoveries and writings. It examines the interconnections between scientific theories and practices and their textual and visual representations. more...

  • Medieval Obscenitiesby Nicola McDonald

    Boydell & Brewer Group Ltd 2014;

    Obscenity is, if nothing else, controversial. Its definition, consumption and regulation fire debate about the very meaning of art and culture, law, politics and ideology. And it is often, erroneously, assumed to be synonymous with modernity. "Medieval Obscenities" examines the complex and contentious role of the obscene - what is offensive, indecent... more...

  • English Vernacular Minuscule from Æthelred to Cnut, circa 990 - circa 1035by Peter A. Stokes

    Boydell & Brewer 2014; US$ 99.00

    A new, distinct script, English vernacular minuscule, emerged in the 990s, used for writing in Old English. It appeared at a time of great political and social upheaval, with Danish incursions and conquest, continuing monastic reform, and an explosion of writing and copying in the vernacular. The writings in which it is used have rarely, however, been... more...

    Boydell & Brewer 2014; US$ 99.00
