    "Neider Überall Zwingen Uns Zu Gerechter Verteidigung": Legitimisation and De-Legitimisation of World War I in German Dramatic Literature
    Dorrer, A (Erich Schmidt Verlag, 2021-08-05)
    This first monograph on WWI dramatic literature closes one of the last research desiderata of the German literature on the First World War. The author opens up a hitherto unknown corpus of texts and identifies the most important discourses represented in these WWI plays. Furthermore, he embeds the discourses in contemporary public debates and identifies them in more famous dramatic works of the Weimar Republic. This allows the analysis of the Heimkehrerdramen of Toller, Brecht, and Horváth to focus on the representation of contemporary narratives that have so far been overlooked and embeds these plays in the context in which they were created. Previously, this was only the case for Karl Kraus’s Die letzten Tage der Menschheit, which is also interpreted by the author in a newly established intertextual relationship with early WWI dramas. The approach this book takes not only provides new insights into the WWI drama between 1914 and the end of the Weimar Republic, but also new points of departure for research in a number of literary and cultural studies fields.

    Working Together in Vanuatu: Research Histories, Collaborations, Projects and Reflections
    Thieberger, N ; Taylor, J ; Thieberger, N (ANU Press, 2011-10-01)
    This collection is derived from a conference held at the Vanuatu National Museum and Cultural Centre (VCC) that brought together a large gathering of foreign and indigenous researchers to discuss diverse perspectives relating to the unique program of social, political and historical research and management that has been fostered in that island nation. While not diminishing the importance of individual or sole-authored methodologies, project-centered collaborative approaches have today become a defining characteristic of Vanuatu’s unique research environment. As this volume attests, this environment has included a dynamically wide range of both ni-Vanuatu and foreign researchers and related research perspectives, most centrally including archaeologists and anthropologists, linguists, historians, legal studies scholars and development practitioners. This emphasis on collaboration has emerged from an ongoing awareness across Vanuatu’s research community of the need for trained researchers to engage directly with pressing social and ethical concerns, and out of the proven fact that it is not just from the outcomes of research that communities or individuals may be empowered, but also through their modes and processes of implementation, as through the ongoing strength and value of the relationships they produce. With this in mind, the papers presented here go beyond the mere celebration of collaboration by demonstrating Vanuatu’s specific environment of cross-cultural research as a diffuse set of historically emergent methodological approaches, and by showing how these work in actual practice.

    Trust and Proof: Translators in Renaissance Print Culture
    Rizzi, A ; Rizzi, A (Brill Academic Publishers, 2018)
    Translators’ contribution to the vitality of textual production in the Renaissance is still often vastly underestimated. Drawing on a wide variety of sources published in Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Latin, German, English, and Zapotec, this volume brings a global perspective to the history of translators, and the printed book. Together the essays point out the extent to which particular language cultures were liable to shift, overlap, shrink, and expand during one of the most defining periods in the history of print culture. Interdisciplinary in approach, Trust and Proof investigates translators’ role in the diffusion of discourse about languages and ancient knowledge, as well as changing etiquettes of reading and writing.

    Luis Alberto Spinetta: Mito y Mitología
    Favoretto, M (Gourmet Musical, 2017)
    La obra poética de Luis Alberto Spinetta, en apariencia, se presenta como un caos indescifrable. Sin embargo, obedece a una estructura coherente, conforme a las cuatro funciones básicas de la mitología (Campbell 1988). Su poesía trata cuestiones existenciales e intenta reconciliar polos opuestos para poner fin a la angustia generada por la separación del hombre del cosmos (Lévi-Strauss 1978). A la vez, la suma del conjunto de su obra, su personalidad carismática, su ética personal y su estética artística sostienen la mitificación de la figura del músico que ha realizado el público en general, quien se identifica con el mito a nivel personal y a la vez, a nivel público como parte de la sociedad a la que pertenece. Este trabajo explora las funciones de la mitología en las canciones de Luis Alberto Spinetta a fin de sugerir una óptica desde donde comenzar a comprender parte de su legado.
