Abstract

The literary discourses of this volume on »Muße«, »dosug«, and »prazdnost'« (leisure) open up new perspectives on the development of Russian culture in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries by means of lexical and semantic approaches, and by probing philosophical, production-aesthetic and socio-historical aspects. In four comprehensive essays emanating from the Slavic studies division of the joint project SFB 1015 »Muße« and its international co-operations, questions of how transferable the phenomenon of »Muße« is to Russian literature and culture are investigated. Discursive processes of the assessment and re-evaluation of work, laziness and leisure can act as indicators for gauging societal processes as much as the condoning or discrediting of »Muße«. Besides the history of mentalities, aesthetic developments and, in particular, the emergence of new literary genres are also included.

Abstract

The manuscript is the first volume of an encyclopedic reference work that, as the result of basic research in literary studies, represents the first systematic attempt to provide comprehensive documentation of the literary events that took place within the official system of the Third Reich as promoted, or at least tolerated, by the decision-makers in the cultural industry more accessible, without resorting to limiting, biased attempts to define a canon. Materials will be presented for the analysis and interpretation of genesis and effects of these events and institutions. For this reason, the study is based on a functional understanding of literature and has taken key institutional elements of the literary communication system into consideration: authors and their works (including radio and film writers), scholars of German studies, the decision-makers of cultural policy (promotion/censure, literary awards), literary associations, publishing houses and theaters, anthologies and periodicals. The total control of all public creative and media activities in the year 1938 through the Third Reich dictatorship rarely provides good sources for the testing of this method. Our systematic research of the phase between 1938 and 1945 intends to create the most comprehensive description possible of the institutions within the literary system and the integration of authors. Apart from printed material in files pertaining to individuals, we primarily scrutinized the contents of the National Archive Berlin / Division on National Socialism (BDC) and what is known as the Gauakten or District Files for this purpose (the vast majority of personal information related to authors was provided by the authors themselves). The most important archival basis for the description of the institutions are files from the National Archive Koblenz (now in the National Archive Berlin) and the Municipal and Provincial Archives of Vienna. In the survey of material, some of the events that transpired before and after the critical Nazi years were systematically included in order to draw attention to continuities and breaks. Especially significant were literary awards and honors, which illustrate the integration of writers in the various governments from the monarchy up through the Second Republic. For this reason, we have included all such prizes that are known. The first attempt to list all literary organizations in Austria and all German-language anthologies, in which Austria texts were included, covers the period between 1933 and 1945. The subsequent period has been documented not only through literary awards and honors, but also through the inclusion of the so-called "Gauakten" in the Austrian National Archive (Österreichisches Staatsarchiv / Archiv der Republik). In order to explore the institutional factors of the literary sub-system in German-speaking regions, a new kind of handbook was created in accordance with this methodological approach, a combination of encyclopedia of persons and specialized dictionary, which should be combined in a network to form a whole. Another factor that led to this format was the division of Austria by the Nazis into seven divisions subject directly to the German government.

Abstract

In the territory of historical Tyrol (i.e., the present Austrian province of Tyrol, South Tyrol, and Trentino), a huge number of Latin texts has been written from the Early Middle Ages to the 21th century. A good part of this literature has been preserved as manuscripts or printed books in the libraries and archives of monasteries, schools, universities, cities and other institutions. The present history of literature for the first time gives a systematic overview of these writings and describes them according to historical eras and literary genres. The single eras are separated from each other by events that had a massive impact on the conditions of production and reception of Latin literature in Tyrol. Each era is first generally characterised in historical and cultural terms; after that, its Latin poetry, rhetoric and eloquence, historiography, biography, epistolography, theology and other ecclesiastic writings, philosophy, medicine, natural sciences, law and jurisprudence are treated in single chapters. The literary history consists of two volumes. The first one includes the eras „From the beginnings to the unification of Tyrol under Count Meinhard II. (1285)“, „From the unification of Tyrol to the death of Emperor Maximilian I. (1519)“, „The 16th century until the death of Ferdinand II., Archduke of Further Austria (1595)“, and „The 17th century until the extinction of the Tyrolian line of the Habsburgs (1665) and the foundation of the University of Innsbruck (1669)“. The second volume comprises the eras „From the foundation of the University of Innsbruck to the abolition of the Jesuit order (1773)“, „From the expulsion of the Jesuits to the revolution of the year 1848“, and „From the revolution of 1848 until the present day“ as well as the bibliography and the indexes.

Abstract

Starting from the early 19th century, quantitative methods have been applied to describe, analyze, and interpret texts in literary studies and the humanities. With the emergence of the digital humanities, such approaches have gained in importance. The volume aims to historically contextualize and examine quantifying procedures in relation to theory and to assess the value of quantitative data in the humanities.

Abstract

Wie andere Außenseiter der Literatur wurde auch Kleist häufig zum Gegenstand einer Deutungspraxis, welche die Gebrechlichkeit der Texte vor allem als Hindernis auf dem Weg zu einer einheitlichen Interpretation begriffen hat. Die Aufsätze des vorliegenden Bandes, die mehr oder minder deutlich vor dem Hintergrund intensiver literaturtheoretischer Debatten in Frankreich und den USA entstanden sind, nehmen Kleists Literatur in einer anderen Weise ernst. Bei aller Unterschiedlichkeit der individuellen Leseverfahren erscheint das Werk Kleists als Herausforderung an die Literaturwissenschaft. Die Herausforderung besteht nicht zuletzt darin, daß das, was als die ebenso grundlegende wie (häufig) unausgesprochene Voraussetzung jeder literaturwissenschaftlichen Arbeit im Spiel ist, von den Texten Kleists in Frage gestellt wird: die Möglichkeit des Verstehens selbst. Kleists Texte geben weniger eine äußere Realität wieder, als daß sie die epistemologischen Grenzen der Referenz zum Thema machen. Gerade deshalb bietet sich sein Werk für Untersuchungen des Verhältnisses von Literatur und Philosophie, von Sprachlichkeit und Welterfahrung, Subjekt und symbolischer Ordnung, von Gesetz und Gerechtigkeit an.
