TransArea : a literary history of globalization by Ottmar Ette( )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in German and English and held by 919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ottmar Ette's TransArea proceeds from the thesis that globalization is not a recent phenomenon, but rather, a process of long duration that may be divided into four main phases of accelerated globalization. These phases connect our present, across the world's widely divergent modern eras, to the period of early modern history. Ette demonstrates how the literatures of the world make possible a tangible perception of that which constitutes Life, both of our planet and on our planet, which may only be understood through the application of multiple logics. There is no substitute for the knowledge of literature: it is the knowledge of life, from life. This English translation will be of great interest to English-speaking scholars in the fields of Global and Area Studies, Literary Studies, Cultural Studies, History, Political Science, and many more."--
Writing-between-worlds : transarea studies and the literatures-without-a-fixed-abode by OTTMAR ETTE( )

12 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 836 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book proposes that there is no better, no more complex way to access a community, a society, an era and its cultures than through literature. For millennia, literature from a wide variety of geocultural areas has gathered knowledge about life, about survival, and about living together, without either falling into discursive or disciplinary specializations or functioning as a regulatory mechanism for cultural knowledge. Literature is able to offer its readers knowledge through direct participation in the form of step-by-step intellectual and affective experiences. Through this ability, it can reach and affect audiences across great spatial and temporal distances. Literature - what different times and cultures have been able to understand as such in a broad sense - has always been characterized by its transareal and transcultural origins and effects. It is the product of many logics, and it teaches us to think polylogically rather than monologically. Literature is an experiment in living, and living in a state of experimentation. --
Political essay on the island of Cuba by Alexander von Humboldt( )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The research Alexander von Humboldt amassed during his five-year trek through the Americas at the turn of the eighteenth to the nineteenth century proved foundational to the fields of botany, geography, and geology. But his visit to Cuba during this time yielded observations that extended far beyond the natural world. Political Essay on the Island of Cuba is a physical and cultural study of the island nation. In it, Humboldt denounces colonial slavery on both moral and economic grounds and stresses the vital importance of improving intercultural relations throughout the Americas

Views of the Cordilleras and monuments of the indigenous peoples of the Americas : a critical edition by Alexander von Humboldt( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1799, Alexander von Humboldt and Aim̌ Bonpland set out to determine whether the Orinoco River connected with the Amazon. But what started as a trip to investigate a relatively minor geographical controversy became the basis of a five-year exploration throughout South America, Mexico, and Cuba. The discoveries amassed by von Humboldt and Bonpland were staggering, and much of today's knowledge of tropical zoology, botany, geography, and geology can be traced back to von Humboldt's numerous records of these expeditions. One of these accounts, Views of the Cordilleras and Monuments of the Indigenous Peoples of the Americas, firmly established Alexander von Humboldt as the founder of Mesoamerican studies. In Views of the Cordilleras--first published in French between 1810 and 1813--von Humboldt weaves together magnificently engraved drawings and detailed texts to achieve multifaceted views of cultures and landscapes across the Americas. In doing so, he offers an alternative perspective on the New World, combating presumptions of its belatedness and inferiority by arguing that the “old” and the “new” world are of the same geological age. This critical edition of Views of the Cordilleras--the second volume in the Alexander von Humboldt in English series--contains a new, unabridged English translation of von Humboldt's French text, as well as annotations, a bibliography, and all sixty-nine plates from the original edition, many of them in color."--Publisher's description

WeltFraktale. Wege durch die Literaturen der Welt by Ottmar Ette( )

6 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieser Band versucht die Entfaltung einer Theorie und Praxis der Literaturen der Welt ausgehend von Erich Auerbachs Auseinandersetzung mit dem von Goethe geprägten Weltliteratur-Konzept. Allein bewegungsgeschichtlich an Mobilität ausgerichtete Kultur- und Literaturtheorien sind heute wohl in der Lage, der verwirrenden Vielfalt hochdynamischer Veränderungen in der Welt durch die Betrachtung transarealer Bahnungen im Feld der Literatur gerecht zu werden. Es handelt sich dabei um das Erfassen von literarischen Austausch- und Transformationsprozessen zwischen Mittelmeer, Atlantik und Pazifik, die das Zusammenspiel verschiedener Erzählmöglichkeiten von Raum und Zeit aus einer gleichsam fraktalen und vielperspektivischen Sichtweise erfassen. Die Literaturen der Welt bilden ein Labor des Polylogischen, eine Schule des viellogischen Denkens, die es uns erlaubt, in unterschiedlichen Logiken zugleich zu denken und damit Zukunft aus der Vielfalt zu gestalten
