The making of a terrorist : on classic German rogues by Jeffrey Champlin( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Making of a Terrorist, Jeffrey Champlin examines key figures from three canonical texts from the German-language literature of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries: Goethe's Gotz von Berlichingen, Schiller's Die Rauber, and Kleist's Michael Kohlhaas. Champlin situates these readings within a larger theoretical and historical context, exploring the mechanics, aesthetics, and poetics of terror while explicating the emergence of the terrorist personality in modernity. In engaging and accessible prose, Champlin explores the ethical dimensions of violence and interrogates an ethics of textual violence. --
The technological introject : Friedrich Kittler between implementation and the incalculable by Jeffrey Champlin( )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Technological Introject explores the futures opened up across the humanities and social sciences by the influential media theorist Friedrich Kittler. Joining the German tradition of media studies and systems theory to the Franco-American theoretical tradition marked by poststructuralism, Kittler's work has redrawn the boundaries of disciplines and of scholarly traditions. The contributors position Kittler in relation to Marshall McLuhan, Jacques Derrida, discourse analysis, film theory, and psychoanalysis. Ultimately, the book shows the continuing relevance of the often uncomfortable questions Kittler opened up about the cultural production and its technological entanglements."--Page 4 of cover

The Making of a Terrorist: German Rogues in "Goetz von Berlichingen", "Die Raeuber", and "Michael Kohlhaas." by Jeffrey Champlin( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

My dissertation The Making of a Terrorist: German Rogues in Gotz von Berlichingen, Die Rauber, and Michael Kohlhaas argues that three canonical German texts around 1800 demonstrate specific ways in which the violence of the terrorist goes beyond injuries against particular people and things to attack political representation itself. I first establish a genealogy of "terror" as a term that erupts in the tradition of political theory from Hobbes to Hegel at moments when this tradition is confronted with the difficulty of portraying violence as the representational link between the private individual and the state. Each of the following literary readings focuses on rhetorical disruptions that reveal threats to the sovereign's attempt to appropriate the violence he faces
Ökonomie des Opfers : Literatur im Zeichen des Suizids by Günter Blamberger( )

1 edition published in 2013 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Warum bleibt im Gedächtnis nur, was nicht aufhört, weh zu tun, wie Nietzsche einmal gesagt hat? Der vorliegende Sammelband sucht Antworten darauf - im Werk und im Suizid von Autoren wie Heinrich von Kleist, Virginia Woolf, Yukio Mishima, Anne Sexton, Hermann Burger und David Foster Wallace. Es scheint einen ebenso fatalen Zusammenhang zu geben zwischen Dichtung, die den Erwartungshorizont der Zeitgenossen sprengt, und Suizid des Dichters wie zwischen Suizid und Nachruhm eines Autors. Die paradoxe Ökonomie des Opfers folgt dem Prinzip: Wer monströs als Subjekt aus der Geschichte verschwindet, taucht irgendwann als Objekt von Geschichten wieder auf, erreicht Aufmerksamkeit in Nachrufen, Erzählungen, mündlicher und schriftlicher Historiographie.--Supplied by publisher
Untying the Mother Tongue On Language, Affect, and the Inconscious : Conference by ICI Berlin Institute for Cultural Inquiry( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The conference Untying the Mother Tongue intends to re-think affective and cognitive attachments to language by deconstructing their metaphysical and colonialist presuppositions. If traditional constructions of a monolingual speaker, a pure "mother tongue" reveal the ideology of the European nation-state, then today's celebration of multilingual competencies simply reflects the rise of global capitalism and its demand for transnational labor markets. French poststructuralist thought has problematized the notion of a "mother tongue" by dividing it into two discrete elements-the "maternal" and the "linguistic"--And by exposing their metaphysical and colonialist presuppositions. Can something be salvaged of the notion of a mother tongue? What are the remains, traces, or vestiges of a language no longer directly tied to the mother yet resounding with a maternal echo and at the same time manifesting itself as a primary idiom with respect to its affective and aesthetic dimensions? This "residual notion" of a mother tongue supposes that language is indeed a basic human need (like food, shelter, or clothing), since it provides an indispensible access to a symbolic dimension shaping affectivity and knowledge
