    Auch nach den Diskussionen über den "Tod" und die "Rückkehr des Autors" bleibt Autorschaft für die Literatur und ebenso für die Künste und Wissenschaften eine grundlegende, sinnstiftende Kategorie; sie erhält noch mehr aktuelle Brisanz unter den Bedingungen der Mediengesellschaft. Der Sammelband widmet sich dem spezifischen Verhältnis von literarischer... more...

    Soft Skull Press 2011; US$ 12.95

Arguing against the sequel?s dismissal as a cultural... more...

  • Blickwendungenby Carsten Morsch

    Erich Schmidt Verlag 2011; US$ 46.31

    Augenzeugenschaft wird meist mit der Unmittelbarkeit eines Geschehens verbunden. Wie jede Wahrnehmung ist sie freilich zugleich Widerfahrnis und Konstruktion. Literarisch genutzt werden kann dies als Spiel mit Versetzungen in ?mögliche? Situationen, als Angebot virtueller Räume. Ziel der Untersuchung ist es, Blickwendungen in mittelalterlichen Texten... more...

    Black & White Publishing 2009; US$ 2.17

    The rivalry between Cardiff and Swansea is one of the fiercest there is anywhere. Each city has its own point of view about the other and over the years their citizens have developed a fine line in humour.

    Editions Rodopi 2007; US$ 103.60

    Contemporary research on Caribbean literature displays a rich variety of themes, literary and cultural categories, forms, genres, languages.
