Kafka : a very short introduction by Ritchie Robertson( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kafka's fiction vividly evokes bizarre situations: a commercial traveller is turned into an insect, a banker is arrested by a mysterious court, and a singing mouse becomes the heroine of her nation. Attending both to Kafka's crisis-ridden life and to the subtleties of his art, Ritchie Robertson shows how his work explores such characteristically modern themes as the place of the body in culture, the power of institutions over people, and the possibility of religion after Nietzsche had proclaimed 'the death of God'. This up-to-date and accessible portrait of a fascinating author shows us ways to read and make sense of his perplexing and absorbing work."--Jacket

Der Sklavenaufstand von Haiti : ethnische Differenz und Humanitätsideale in der Literatur des 19. Jahrhunderts by Marie Biloa Onana( )

1 edition published in 2010 in German and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Am 22. August 1791 brach in Port-au-Prince der erste große kollektive Sklavenaufstand der Neuzeit aus. Die Sklaven von Saint-Domingue erhoben sich gegen die französischen Kolonialherren. Am Ende dieses Aufstands proklamierten die Schwarzen und Mulatten am 1. Januar 1804 die Unabhängigkeit der Insel unter dem Namen Haiti. Haiti erlangte somit als erstes Land in Lateinamerika seine Unabhängigkeit. Dieses Buch zeigt das große Echo des Sklavenaufstands von Saint-Domingue in der Literatur des 19. Jahrhunderts. Deutlich wird, dass dieses Ereignis zu einem wichtigen Referenzpunkt der Moderne wurde und dass auch Texte etwa von Victor Hugo oder Heinrich von Kleist Teil eines übergreifenden Diskurses sind, in dem ethnische Differenz, Geschlecht und Nation als kulturelle Deutungsmuster wirksam sind
Mediated discourse : the nexus of practice by Ronald Scollon( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mediated Discourse: The Nexus of Practice sets out a discursive theory of human action. Language and action are intimately related. The difficult question to answer is how they are related. Mediated Discourse Theory looks into social relationships to see how the use of language is both a form of action in itself and is also indirectly related to all other forms of human action. Through the empirical study of a one year old child learning to exchange objects with caregivers, Scollon challenges the commonly held claim that all practices are represented in discourse and that all discourse has the function of structuring practice."--Jacket
