Literature and terrorism : comparative perspectives( )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The years following the attacks of September 11, 2001 have seen the publication of a wide range of scientific analyses of terrorism. Literary studies seem to lag curiously behind this general shift of academic interest. The present volume sets out to fill this gap. It does so in the conviction that the study of literature has much to offer to the transdisciplinary investigation of terror, not only with respect to the present post-9/11 situation but also with respect to earlier historical contexts. Literary texts are media of cultural self-reflection, and as such they have always played a cruci
Kulturelle Einflussangst : Inszenierungen der Grenze in der Reiseliteratur des 19. Jahrhunderts by Michael C Frank( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in German and English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neben verschiedenen Repräsentationen des Anderen Europas hat die koloniale Reiseliteratur auch das Fremdbild des enteuropäisierten Europäers hervorgebracht. Dieser Typus gibt Aufschluss über ein bisher noch kaum erfasstes Phänomen, das als kulturelle Einflussangst beschrieben werden kann. Insbesondere im 19. Jahrhundert lässt sich eine intensive Auseinandersetzung mit den möglichen Folgen von Akkulturation, 'Rassenmischung' und Klimaeinflüssen für weiße Reisende und Kolonisten in den Tropen beobachten. Literarische Texte inszenieren den kolonialen Raum als ein Feld interkultureller Begegnungen, das von einer klaren Grenze durchzogen ist - die zu überschreiten tabu bleibt
The cultural imaginary of terrorism in public discourse, literature, and film : narrating terror by Michael C Frank( )

13 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study investigates the overlaps between political discourse and literary and cinematic fiction, arguing that both are informed by, and contribute to, the cultural imaginary of terrorism. It explores the ways in which clandestine political violence stimulates the collective imagination, a fact that has received little attention despite its cultural prominence. Whenever mass-mediated acts of terrorism occur, they tend to trigger a proliferation of threat scenarios not only in the realm of literature and film, but also in the statements of policymakers, security experts, and journalists. In the process, the discursive boundary between the factual and the hypothetical can become difficult to discern. To illuminate this phenomenon, this book proposes that terror is a halfway house between the real and the imaginary. For what characterizes terrorism is less the single act of violence than it is the fact that this act is perceived to be the beginning, or part, of a potential series, and that further acts are expected to occur"--
