Abstract

Il teatro yiddish è una fiorente anche se breve civiltà teatrale fiorita tra l’Otto e il Novecento, che ha accompagnato milioni di ebrei dell’Europa centrale e orientale nelle nuove dislocazioni in tutto il mondo. Era un popolo in fuga da persecuzioni e miseria, alla ricerca di benessere e felicità, un popolo che si chiedeva se e come fosse possibile conciliare tradizioni e valori millenari con la modernità. Il teatro yiddish si è sviluppato in dialogo con l’operetta, il melodramma e il teatro borghese del tempo, creando proprie forme del tutto originali, soprattutto il cosiddetto grottesco yiddish. Popolare e sperimentale, attraversato dalla musica e dal canto, soprattutto espressione di grandi attrici e attori che ispiravano i drammaturghi e si confrontavano spregiudicatamente con i grandi autori del passato, il teatro yiddish ha poi cessato di esistere soltanto in apparenza, perché - come qui si dimostra - ha irradiato con le proprie invenzioni recitative, drammaturgiche e registiche il teatro e il cinema di oggi nelle sue migliori espressioni sia popolari che d’avanguardia.

Abstract

Esta obra se ocupa de una generación y de una corriente particular del universo cultural judío de la Mitteleuropa: una generación de intelectuales nacidos en el curso del último cuarto del siglo XIX, cuyos escritos beben al mismo tiempo de fuentes alemanas (romanticismo) y judías (mesianismo). Se articula en torno a la idea judía (cabalística) de Tikkoun, la redención. Algunos de ellos estuvieron orientados hacia la religión: Martín Buber, Gershom Scholem, Franz Rosenzweig. Otros, por el contrario, se sintieron atraídos por las utopías sociales: Ernst Bloch. Gyorgy Lukács, Erich Fromm. Entre ambos, más allá de todas las corrientes y en el cruce de todos los caminos: Franz Kafka y Walter Benjamín. A pesar de todas sus diferencias, hay entre ellos una impresionante comunidad espiritual, fundada sobre la afinidad electiva entre la redención mesiánica y la utopía libertaria.

Abstract

"The story of modernist architects in East Central Europe. The first half of the twentieth century witnessed the rise of modernist architects. Brokers of Modernity reveals how East Central Europe turned into one of the pre-eminent testing grounds of the new belief system of modernism. By combining the internationalism of the CIAM organization and the modernising aspirations of the new states built after 1918, the reach of modernist architects extended far beyond their established fields. Yet, these architects paid a price when Europe’s age of extremes intensified. Mainly drawing on Polish, but also wider Central and Eastern European cases, this book delivers a pioneering study of the dynamics of modernist architects as a group, including how they became qualified, how they organized, communicated and attempted to live the modernist lifestyle themselves. In doing so, Brokers of Modernity raises questions concerning collective work in general and also invites us to examine the social role of architects today."

Abstract

Bisher liegen kaum Studien vor, welche die Geschichte einer einzelnen Stadt des ostslawischen Siedlungsgebietes über einen längeren Zeitraum untersuchen. Das Beispiel von Polock zeigt, wie sich ein bedeutender Fürstensitz der Rus’ im Kontakt mit Ostmitteleuropa vom 13. Jahrhundert an tief greifend verändert. Im Rahmen Polen-Litauens folgten auf die von Orthodoxen getragene Kommunegenese im Spätmittelalter konfliktreiche Konfessionsbildungsprozesse und die Entstehung orthodoxer sowie unierter Zünfte und Laienbruderschaften im 17. Jahrhundert. Die rechtliche Uneinheitlichkeit der Stadt ließ sie zur Zufluchtsstätte einer wachsenden jüdischen Gemeinde werden. Nach der Eingliederung ins Zarenreich 1772 wurden die Juden in die städtische Selbstverwaltung eingebunden, jedoch 1892 wieder aus ihr ausgeschlossen. Diese Exklusion konnte im Handlungsfeld des Vereinswesens der nun mehrheitlich jüdischen Stadt nur teilweise kompensiert werden.

Abstract

This volume is the result of a conference, which was held from June 14–15, 2012 at the Event Centre Schüttkasten in Klement-Oberleis, Lower Austria. The thematic focus of the contributions was the nature of contacts and relations between the settlement areas of the La Tène culture, which are associated with the Celtic tribes of the Boii and Taurisci on the basis of numismatic and written sources. The paradigm shifts in Iron Age archaeology and the veritable explosion of new archaeological materials and find contexts (coins, fibulae, Knotenringe, architecture and settlement features) have found their expression in this volume.

Abstract

Reminiscent narratives on Eastern, Central Eastern and Southeastern Europe and their investigation from a comparative literary perspective are the core of the volume Trauma - Generations - Narrative. With recourse to trauma theories and the concept of postmemory, the authors ask what effect traumatic experiences have on subsequent generations in the mirror of literature. Traumatic experiences, family memories, and the consequences of wars and other human-made catastrophes are the focus of the book, along with narrative techniques. The abundance and diversity of literary texts as well as their broad reception attest to the current productivity of literature with a post-memorial orientation, whose function and dynamics are particularly explored by the considerations bundled here. / Nacherinnernde Narrative zum ost-, ostmittel- und südosteuropäischen Raum und ihre Untersuchung aus komparatistisch-literaturwissenschaftlicher Sicht sind der Kern des Bandes Trauma – Generationen – Erzählen. Mit Rückgriff auf Traumatheorien sowie das Konzept der Postmemory fragen die Autorinnen und Autoren nach dem Fortwirken traumatischer Erfahrungen in nachfolgenden Generationen im Spiegel der Literatur. Traumatisches Erleben, Familiengedächtnisse sowie die Folgen von Kriegen und anderen von Menschen gemachten Katastrophen stehen dabei neben erzählerischen Verfahren im Mittelpunkt. Die Fülle und Vielfalt literarischer Texte belegen ebenso wie deren breite Rezeption die aktuelle Produktivität von Literatur mit postmemorialer Ausrichtung, deren Funktion und Dynamik die hier gebündelten Überlegungen insbesondere nachgehen.

Abstract

This book interrogates the nature of anti-Americanism today and over the last century. It asks several questions: How do we define the phenomenon from different perspectives: political, social, and cultural? What are the historical sources and turning points of anti-Americanism in Europe and elsewhere? What are its links with anti-Semitic sentiment? Has anti-Americanism been beneficial or self-destructive to its “believers”? Finally, how has the United States responded and why? The authors, ...
