Abstract

This collection of essays on Turgenev, Goncharov, Conrad, Dostoevsky, Blok, Briusov, Gor’kii, Pasternak and Nabokov represents diverse voices but is also unified. One invariant is the recurring distinction between “culture” and “civilization” and the vision of Russia as the bearer of culture because it is “barbaric.” Another stance advocates the synthesis of “sense and sensibility” and the vision of “Apollo” and “Dionysus” creating a “civilized culture” together. Those voices that delight in the artificiality of civilization are complemented by those apprehensive of the dangers inherent in barbarism. This collection thus adds new perspectives to the much-debated opposition of vital Russia and a declining West, offering novel interpretations of classics from Oblomov to Lolita and The Idiot to Doctor Zhivago.

Abstract

Die Disziplin der Europäischen Geschichte steht wohl vor der größten Herausforderung ihrer noch jungen Vergangenheit: Die globalhistorische Wende hat viele Grundannahmen der Europäischen Moderne in Frage gestellt und neue Anforderungen formuliert. Die Geschichte Europas soll polyzentrische oder provinzialisierte Perspektiven aufzeigen, die sich als Teil einer transnationalen oder Globalgeschichte verstehen. Diesem Anspruch wird der Band gerecht. Die Beiträger nutzen transnationale, postkoloniale und globalhistorische Zugänge, um einen neuen Blick auf die Europäische Geschichte zu werfen. Zudem führt die Auseinandersetzung mit den geografischen und analytischen Rändern zu einem neuen Verständnis der Geschichte Europas. "Europa" wird dadurch zu einer spezifischen sozialen und kulturellen Konstellation, die sich über innere Gemeinsamkeiten und Konflikte sowie über Abgrenzungen nach außen und Interaktionen mit anderen Weltteilen konstituierte.

Abstract

Barely known in public is the life of long-distance commute workers who extract the „blue and black gold” for the export to Europe. They are travelling people who work and live rotationally for a few weeks at the extraction sites before they go back again to their families in the southern regions. This ethnography takes the reader from the Volga Region to the Arcitc “Russian Gas Capital” Novy Urengoy and provides critically insights into the Russian petroleum industry.
