Abstract

Seit den 1990er Jahren werden Fragen nach dem Verhältnis zwischen Veränderungen in der naturalen Umwelt und deren literarischen Repräsentationen im Bereich der Literaturwissenschaft unter dem Begriff Ecocriticism subsumiert und diskutiert. In diesem Band werden umwelthistorische Perspektiven ebenfalls in die Diskussion eingebunden. Dabei ist einerseits zu fragen, wie der Wandel im menschlichen Verhältnis zur »Natur« (und den sich wandelnden Bedeutungsnuancen dieses Begriffs) zu unterschiedlichen Zeiten in literarischen Texten verhandelt wird und welche neuen literarischen Ausdrucksformen er womöglich provoziert. Andererseits ist auch zu fragen, wie sich literarische und kulturelle Muster auf die Gestaltung der naturalen Umwelt auswirken können. Inwiefern korrespondieren dabei literarische Modellierungen des Wandels diachron und synchron mit Veränderungsprozessen in der Natur? Diese doppelte Fragestellung schließt auch die Möglichkeit einer wechselseitigen Kritik umwelthistorischer und literarischer Perspektiven ein.

Abstract

Against the background of fundamental changes caused by processes of globalisation and the effects of demarcation, this conference proceedings with new interpretations of the category of space from different scientific perspectives is dedicated to. Terms such as city, economic area, metropolitan region, leisure and natural space characterize everyday experiences and representations of space, which have a decisive influence on and structure the conception of the world and the environment: The dynamic concept of 'space' thus reveals itself in its symbolic, material and regulatory contents. This ambiguity requires not only a reflexive treatment of spatial metaphors, but also a differentiation and critical accompaniment of political processes, which are examined from a political, planning, economic, cultural and media-scientific perspective on the basis of the Hamburg metropolitan region. This volume collects the contributions of an interdisciplinary workshop on the topic "City - Space - Nature: The Metropolitan Region as a Politically Constructed Space", which took place on June 15-16, 2001 at the University of Hamburg.

Abstract

This volume collects the revised contributions of a conference that took place in March 2002 at the Warburg-Haus in Hamburg. It was organised as part of the "Nature in Conflict" research project, which was funded by the Volkswagen Foundation within the framework of the "Key Humanities Issues" funding programme. This interdisciplinary project was dedicated to the investigation of mental concepts, images, models and value attributions that belong to the collective fund of our ideas of nature. In this context, the investigations are directed from the perspective of various disciplines - ethnology or social anthropology, history, coastal research in the natural sciences, literature, linguistics and media studies - in particular at those images of nature and models that belong to the argumentations and convictions that are often not discussed.
