About

Die Schwerpunkte des Verlags liegen auf den Bereichen Geschichte, Literaturwissenschaft, Wissenschaftsgeschichte und Kulturwissenschaften. Nachdem anfänglich der thematische Fokus noch vorwiegend auf der Literatur- und Geistesgeschichte des 18. Jahrhunderts lag, hat sich der Verlag inzwischen mit Veröffentlichungen aus einem breiten wissenschaftlichen Spektrum einen Namen gemacht.

Peer review info

Peer-Review at the FWF: All funded books pass through an independent academic peer review process prior to publication. Either the FWF or the publisher handle the peer review process. The FWF asks for at least one written review from an international renowned expert outside of Austria. In cases where the publisher itself handles the peer review process, the publisher has to ask for at least two peer reviews meeting the requirements of the FWF. This means: Reviews must not be carried out by persons who may have or may be suspected to have a conflict of interest with regard to the authors, editors or other persons involved in the publication. Reviewers are considered to have a conflict of interest in cases where they might benefit personally or financially from the approval or rejection of the application. The same applies to cases where reviewers have worked at the same research institution, published or cooperated with the applicant or another person involved in the publication in the last five years, or where the reviewers have fundamental differences of scholarly opinion or close professional and/or personal relationships with the applicant or another person involved in the publication. Scholars who work in Austria must not be called in as reviewers. Peer reviews must be meaningful and comparable with reviews obtained by the FWF. Publishers could only conduct the peer review by themselves if they have an international peer review process for the selection of publications. The review process must be described in a transparent manner on the web site of the publisher.

Abstract

The twenty-tow contributions in this transnational and interdisciplinary volume delve into the material, symbolic and aesthetic dimensions of the album format using approaches from the fields of cultural studies, literary studies and media studies. This Publication unites perspectives from English, American, German, Romance, Slavic, archive and film studies, history, art history, musicology and philosophy to explore this culturally significant ‚networking’ medium.The starting point for all of the contributions in the publication is the album format, which, with ist inscriptions and non-verbal semantics, can integrate, represent and symbolically reproduce all forms of media and culture. The volume’s main interest is the interconnectedness: The album has the innate abily to unify the most diverse subject areas. Representation, mobility, migration and memory, multiculturalism and the formation of communities, materiality and the culture of things, the discourse of friendship, family history, generational narratives, and transmedia experimentation in remolding genres and art forms all have a place in the album, as it can transform anything into one coherent aesthetic system.

Die zweiundzwanzig Beiträge des interdisziplinären und transnationalen Bandes erforschen die materielle, symbolische und ästhetische Dimension von Alben unter kultur-, literatur- und medienwissenschaftlichen Fragestellungen. Die Publikation vereinigt die Perspektiven aus Anglistik, Amerikanistik, Germanistik, Romanistik, Slawistik, Kunstgeschichte, Archivwesen, Filmwissenschat, Geschichtswissenschaft, Musikwissenschaft und Philosophie zu einer Auseinandersetzung mit einem Netzwerkmedium von hohem kultur-, literatur- und medienwissenschaftlichen Interesse.
