200 years of nation­al philolo­gies: from roman­ti­cism to glob­al­iza­tion
BuchcoverThe 17 con­tri­bu­tions in this vol­ume pur­sue a posi­tion­ing of the philolo­gies, which – based on the ‚Volks­geist‘ (pop­u­lar spir­it) of the 19th cen­tu­ry and the cul­tur­al stud­ies of the 20th cen­tu­ry – must repo­si­tion them­selves in the 21st cen­tu­ry. The con­tri­bu­tions address ques­tions such as: What changes are occur­ring with increas­ing glob­al­iza­tion? Are nation­al lit­er­a­tures increas­ing­ly being absorbed into the so-called „world lit­er­a­ture“? The authors come from the fields of Romance stud­ies, Ger­man stud­ies and Eng­lish stud­ies. They deal with top­ics of lit­er­ary his­to­ri­og­ra­phy, can­on­iza­tion, com­par­a­tive lit­er­a­ture, and also ques­tions of the future.

Imag­in­ing gen­der in bio­graph­i­cal fic­tion
BuchcoverThis vol­ume address­es the cur­rent boom in bio­graph­i­cal fic­tions across the globe, exam­in­ing the ways in which gen­dered lives of the past become re-imag­ined as gen­dered nar­ra­tives in fic­tion. Build­ing on this research, this book is the first to address ques­tions of gen­der in a sus­tained and sys­tem­at­ic man­ner that is also sen­si­tive to cul­tur­al and his­tor­i­cal dif­fer­ences in both raw mate­r­i­al and fic­tion­al rework­ing. It devel­ops a crit­i­cal lens through which to approach biofic­tions as ‘fic­tions of gen­der’, draw­ing on the­o­ries of biofic­tion and his­tor­i­cal fic­tion, life-writ­ing stud­ies, fem­i­nist crit­i­cism, queer fem­i­nist read­ings, post­colo­nial stud­ies, fem­i­nist art his­to­ry, and trans stud­ies. Atten­tive to var­i­ous approach­es to fic­tion­al­i­sa­tion that reclaim, appro­pri­ate or re-invent their ‘raw mate­r­i­al’, the vol­ume assess­es the crit­i­cal, revi­sion­ist and decon­struc­tive poten­tial of bio­graph­i­cal fic­tions while acknowl­edg­ing the effects of cliché, gen­der norms and estab­lished nar­ra­tives in many of the texts under inves­ti­ga­tion.
