Abstract

Der Horrorfilm lässt Erscheinungsformen des Körpers sichtbar werden, die in übrigen Diskursen meist ausgeschlossen oder verworfen werden. Diese genrespezifischen Strategien der Visualisierung zeigen ein »Unzeigbares«, das nicht nur zum abweichenden Gegenbild des Körpers, sondern auch zum Faszinosum und Spektakel erhoben wird. Die Studie deutet diese Körperbilder vor dem Hintergrund kultureller Konzeptionen des Körperlichen und erschließt die heterogenen und historischen Dimensionen, die sich in ihnen einzeichnen. Im Zentrum stehen dabei die Themenfelder Monstrosität, phantastische Krankheit und Tod.

Abstract

"Heroes have to die because they are human. Their death, however, may vary in its relevance to their status as heroic figures. In Greek antiquity, death is the prerequisite for heroisation; expecting to continue their existence in the afterlife, martyrs sacrifice their lives in acts of killing that are often taken to the extreme; the war hero follows the call to commit his life to a greater good, without death being the necessary goal. Based on examples from the time between antiquity and the present age, the contributions to this book show from an interdisciplinary perspective how heroic action, dying, and death are respectively related to each other and how the representations of heroic dying mediate between heroes and their audience. The essays discuss questions such as: How do heroic figures die? What role does violence play in the process? How is the hero’s death presented and staged? What types of media in particular lend themselves to depictions of heroic death and the death of the hero? With contributions byAchim Aurnhammer, Cornelia Brink, Ulrich Bröckling, Jürgen Dendorfer, Nicolas Detering, Peter Eich, Nicole Falkenhayner, Andreas Gelz, Olmo Gölz, Joachim Grage, Barbara Korte, Dietmar Neutatz, Johanna Pink, Sitta von Reden, Anna Schreurs-Morét, Magnus Striet, Stefan Tilg, Ralf von den Hoff.

Abstract

Funeral culture is changing rapidly. In recent years, graveyards and burial rituals in Germany have altered significantly. They no longer reflect mechanisms of collective sense-making; instead, they represent individual lifeworlds. Death and the decisions and actions surrounding it have, in effect, become characterised by pluralism.When it comes to legal regulations, however, no change is visible. The law does not interpret the aforementioned cultural transformation from the perspective of the bereaved. It is thus not surprising that graveyard rules and especially the stipulation that human remains may only be interred in a cemetery have come under criticism.Yet today, practices have evolved by which the bereaved can sidestep the rules and keep the ashes of their deceased relatives with them, or scatter them at alternative locations. The trigger for this silent revolution is individualisation. However much individual decisions play a role in this respect, this development is also the result of changes within the cultural mind. They both mark a shift towards mourning becoming more autonomous.
