Abstract

Krystian Lupa (* 1943), to whom this work is dedicated, is a theater director who enjoys the status of a "master" in Poland at the latest since the beginning of the 1990s. He has a reputation for lasting influence on Polish theater. This monograph presents the theatrical work of the Polish director Krystian Lupa for the first time comprehensively to the German speaking public. Starting from Lupas biography, an overview of his previous work and his narrative dramaturgy on individual staging analyzes to the detailed analysis of the staging cycle after Broch's "The Sleepwalkers" Lupas artistic manifesto, in the theater "want to explore new myths" discussed. The depiction of Lupa's theatrical concept is considered in the context of a mythology between martyrology and messianism, which has shaped the Polish cultural paradigm for many years, but is now in transition. Lupa's theater functions as a "metaphysical experience". Nevertheless, it seeks and investigates human cognition, which is why it is called "cognitive psychological theater". As an "interruption of the political," it comes up with a sense design that is put to the test and deliberately unchanged. Lupa integrates radical self-knowledge into a fragmentary totality that remains so human that man is not degraded in it, but rises.

Abstract

This volume investigates the process of learning how to live with individual and group differences in the twenty-first century and examines the ambivalences of contemporary cosmopolitanism. Engaging with the concept of ‘critical cartography’, it emphasizes the structural impact of localities on the experiences of those living with difference, while trying to develop an account of the counter-mappings that follow spatial and social transformations in today’s world. The contributors focus on visual, normative and cultural embodiments of difference, examining dynamic conflicts at local sites that are connected by the processes of Europeanization and globalization.
The collection explores a wide range of topics, including conflicting claims of sexual minorities and conservative Christians, the relationship between national identity and cosmopolitanism, and the ways that cross-cultural communication and bilingualism can help us to understand the complex nature of belonging. The authors come from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds and all contribute to a vernacular reading of cosmopolitanism and transnationalism, aimed at opening up new avenues of research into living with difference.

Abstract

From a historical perspective, the full academic establishment of Women’s and Gender Studies is a radical and far-reaching innovation. Decisive impulses have come from the United States, the European unification and globalization. European Women’s and Gender Studies are therefore intimately linked to the English language and Anglophone cultures, as the near untranslatability of «gender» shows. In this volume 25 experts present surveys for their countries with a historical and European contextualization and offer fundamental insights not only for English Studies but also various other disciplines.
