Was ist Kulturwissenschaft? zehn Antworten aus den »Kleinen Fächern«( )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in German and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Kultur- und Geisteswissenschaften durchlaufen derzeit einen fundamentalen Wandlungsprozess: Mit den neuen Herausforderungen der Globalisierung werden europäische geisteswissenschaftliche Kategorien zunehmend in Frage gestellt und neu reflektiert. Insbesondere die "Kleinen Fächer" werden sich angesichts dessen nur behaupten können, wenn sie sich innovativen kulturwissenschaftlichen Fragestellungen öffnen, die die gegenwärtigen globalen Zustände kritisch zu durchdringen vermögen. Die Beiträge des Bandes zeigen, inwieweit die "Kleinen Fächer" tatsächlich bereit sind, diesen "Cultural Turn" zu vollziehen, inwiefern eine kulturwissenschaftliche Ausrichtung diese Fächer stärkt und fragen, ob eine solch verbindende Perspektive disziplinenübergreifend zur Orientierung verhilft
The Bonn handbook of globality by Ludger Kühnhardt( )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This two-volume handbook provides readers with a comprehensive interpretation of globality through the multifaceted prism of the humanities and social sciences. Key concepts and symbolizations rooted in and shaped by European academic traditions are discussed and reinterpreted under the conditions of the global turn. Highlighting consistent anthropological features and socio-cultural realities, the handbook gathers coherently structured articles written by 110 professors in the humanities and social sciences at Bonn University, Germany, who initiate a global dialogue on meaningful and sustainable notions of human life in the age of globality. Volume 1 introduces readers to various interpretations of globality, and discusses notions of human development, communication and aesthetics. Volume 2 covers notions of technical meaning, of political and moral order, and reflections on the shaping of globality
Transottomanica : osteuropäisch-osmanisch-persische Mobilitätsdynamiken ; Perspektiven und Forschungsstand( )

9 editions published in 2019 in German and Undetermined and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Geschichte der grossen Reiche im östlichen Europa und im Vorderen Orient war sowohl von konfliktträchtiger Konkurrenz als auch von übergreifendem Austausch geprägt, die intensive Verzahnungen hervorbrachten. Vom 16. bis zum Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts lassen sich zwischen Polen-Litauen, dem Zarenreich, dem Osmanischen Reich und Persien eine Vielzahl gesellschaftlicher und kultureller Verflechtungen nachzeichnen. Getragen von verschiedenen Gruppen und Individuen wie Kaufleuten, Gelehrten, Diplomaten, Migranten, Militärs oder Sklaven kam es zu einem regen Austausch von Menschen, Waren und Ideen. Daraus erwuchsen zu verschiedenen Zeiten und in verschiedenen sozialen Räumen 'transosmanische' Interaktionszusammenhänge. Der vorliegende Band gibt neben knappen methodischen Skizzen einen Forschungsüberblick über solche transregionalen Verflechtungen und 'Flüsse', die bisher noch nicht in systematischer Form untersucht worden sind
The heritage of Soviet Oriental studies by Michael Kemper( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Western field of oriental studies and orientalism - criticised by Edward Said among others for encouraging the orient to be viewed in a€particular way -€has a counterpart in Russia and the Soviet Union.

Everything is on the move : the Mamluk Empire as a node in (trans- )regional networks( )

Short description: New insights into the production and transformation of socio-cultural, economic, political and religious networks in a globalized pre-modern region
Ubi sumus? quo vademus? : Mamluk studies, state of the art by Stephan Conermann( )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hauptbeschreibung Dieser Band nimmt Quellen in den Blick, die bisher häufig genug im Schatten der Chroniken und der normativen Literatur standen. Kostbare Informationen liefern uns etwa Schriften gegen unzulässige Neuerungen oder unstatthafte Sitten und Gebräuche, Pilgerführer, Reiseberichte, prosopographische und biographische Schriften, Journale und Tagebücher, Volksromane, Urkunden und Kanzleihandbücher. Grundsätzlich gilt allerdings für die Mamlukologie insgesamt, dass noch enorm viel Grundlagenarbeit in Form von Texterschließung geleistet werden muss. Die notgedrungene Konzentr
State formation and the structure of politics in Mamluk Syro-Egypt, 648-741 A.H./1250-1340 C.E. by Winslow Williams Clifford( )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and German and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Winslow Williams Clifford is one of the few historians so far who have addressed the history and culture of the so-called Mamluk Sultanate (1250-1517) on the basis of theoretical models. This volume is a posthumous publication of his doctoral thesis, submitted in 1995 at the University of Chicago. Through his skillful application of social theory, Clifford succeeded in providing highly convincing evidence that the Mamluk Sultanate did not - as was maintained for a long time - constitute a static form of "oriental despotism" but was, rather, a highly differentiated society. It was primarily based on compliance with a complex system of order that had established itself during the rule of the first sultans
Muslim-Jewish relations in the Middle Islamic Period : Jews in the Ayyubid and Mamluk Sultanates (1171-1517) by Paulina B Lewicka( Book )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book contributes to the history of medieval Jewry in general, as a basis for a comparative study of the position of the Jews in Christian Europe in the Late Middle Ages. The eight articles written by leading experts on this topic pay special attention to the following issues: the measure of tolerance of the Mamluk rulers and the Muslim populace toward the Jews; Jews in government positions and as court physicians; conversion and attitudes toward converted Jews; the Sufi (mystical) nature of Jewish leadership and its relation to the Sufi Islamic discourse; professional, intellectual and legal interactions between Jews and Muslims. In the end, the contributions help us to sharpen our understanding of Jewish life during the Middle Islamic Period in the Near East"--Provided by publisher
The Mamluk-Ottoman transition : continuity and change in Egypt and Bilād al-Shām in the sixteenth century by The Mamluk-Ottoman Transition - Continuity and Change in Egypt and Bilād al-Shām in the Sixteenth Century( Book )

16 editions published between 2016 and 2020 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays discuss continuity and change in Bilād al Shām (Greater Syria) during the sixteenth century, examining to what extent Egypt and Greater Syria were affected by the transition from Mamluk to Ottoman rule. This is explored in a variety of areas: diplomatic relations, histories and historiography, fiscal and agricultural administration, symbolic orders, urban developments, local perspectives and material culture. In order to rethink the sixteenth century from a transitional perspective and thus overcome the conventional dynasty-centered fields of research Mamlukists and Ottomanists have been brought together, shedding light on the remarkable sixteenth century, so decisive for the formation of early modern Muslim empires

Macht und Herrschaft transkulturell vormoderne Konfigurationen und Perspektiven der Forschung by Andreas Anter( Book )

8 editions published in 2018 in German and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Macht und Herrschaft prägen das menschliche Zusammenleben in allen Epochen und Teilen der Erde. Welche vormodernen gesellschaftlichen und politischen Tiefenstrukturen europäischer und aussereuropäischer Kulturräume wirken dabei auf die globalisierte Welt von heute? Durch eine vergleichende transkulturelle Analyse lassen sich Phänomene von Macht und Herrschaft in ihrer spezifischen Geschichtlichkeit besser verstehen. Experten der Mittelalterlichen Geschichte, Islamwissenschaft, Sinologie und Sozialwissenschaften zeigen die Herausforderungen und Chancen eines derartigen Zugangs. Dazu ist eine genaue Analyse sozialer und politischer Ordnungen unter Berücksichtigung zeitgenössischer Diskurse notwendig, um rein eurozentrische Zugänge in einem empirischen Lernprozess zu überwinden. --
Mamluk historiography revisited : narratological perspectives by Uwe Baumann( Book )

9 editions published in 2018 in English and German and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume discusses Mamluk historical texts with an emphasis on literary/stylistic analysis, basically ignoring issues of 'factuality' versus 'fictivity'. None of the authors set out to write 'fiction'; nor would their audience have received their accounts as such. The events depicted were a matter of historical record; but their meaning was geared both to contemporary and to general concerns. The fact of telling them is part and parcel of the historian's task; the means of telling them has to do with the historian's choice of style; and style is all-important in conveying meaning. Were these accounts not considered 'true', the purpose behind their telling and the meaning they convey, would, arguably, be lost; but were they not told in the most effective manner, their meaning might not be clearly grasped"--Back cover

The Mamluk Sultanate from the perspective of regional and world history : economic, social and cultural development in an era of increasing international interaction and competition by Reuven Amitai( Book )

8 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Mamluk Sultanate represents an extremely interesting case study to examine social, economic and cultural developments in the transition into the rapidly changing modern world. On the one hand, it is the heir of a political and military tradition that goes back hundreds of years, and brought this to a high pitch that enabled astounding victories over serious external threats. On the other hand, as time went on, it was increasingly confronted with?modern? problems that would necessitate fundamental changes in its structure and content. The Mamluk period was one of great religious and social change, and in many ways the modern demographic map was established at this time. This volume will show that the situation of the Mamluk Sultanate, was far from that of decadence, and until the end it was a vibrant society (although not without tensions and increasing problems) that did its best to adapt and compete in a rapidly changing world
Slaves and slave agency in the Ottoman Empire by Stephan Conermann( )

11 editions published in 2020 in English and German and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Slaves and Slave Agency in the Ottoman Empire offers a new contribution to slavery studies relating to the Ottoman Empire. Given the fact that the classical binary of 'slavery' and 'freedom' derives from the transatlantic experience, this volume presents an alternative approach by examining the strong asymmetric relationships of dependency documented in the Ottoman Empire. A closer look at the Ottoman social order discloses manifold and ambiguous conditions involving enslavement practices, rather than a single universal pattern. The authors examine various forms of enslavement and dependency with a particular focus on agency, i. e. the room for maneuver, which the enslaved could secure for themselves, or else the available options for action in situations of extreme individual or group dependencies"--Back cover
