Approaching postmodernism : papers presented at a Workshop on Postmodernism, 21-23 September 1984, University of Utrecht by Douwe Wessel Fokkema( )

22 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 1,694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most of the essays collected in this volume deal with theoretical issues that dominate the international debate on Postmodernism, issues such as the shifting nature of the concept, the problem of periodization and the problem of historicity. Other essays offer readings of Postmodernist texts and relate practical criticism to a theoretical framework. Hans Bertens (Utrecht) sketches the historical development of the concept Postmodernism in American criticism, distinguishing between the various definitions that have been proposed over the last twenty-five years, in an attempt to bring some order
Literary history, modernism, and postmodernism by Douwe Wessel Fokkema( )

18 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 1,693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In these lectures, delivered at Harvard University in March 1983, the differences between Modernism and Postmodernism are discussed in semiotic terms, based on a contrastive analysis of semantic and syntactical (compositional) features. They present the major results of research into the literary conventions of Modernism (Gide, Larbaud, V. Woolf, du Perron, Th. Mann) and the innovations of Postmodernism (Borges, Fuentes, Barthelme, Calvino, Hermans). The investigation of innovation in literary history is based on a concept of literary evolution, launched by the Russian Formalists and elaborated by reception theory and semioticians such as Lotman and Eco. The author argues for further corroboration by means of empirical - textual as well as psychlogical - research."--Page 4 of cover
Perfect worlds : utopian fiction in China and the West by Douwe Wessel Fokkema( )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Perfect Worlds offers an extensive historical analysis of utopian narratives in the Chinese and Euro-American traditions. This comparative study discusses, among other things, More's criticism of Plato, the European orientalist search for utopia in China, Wells's Modern Utopia and his talk with Stalin, Chinese writers constructing their Confucianist utopia, traces of Daoism in Mao Zedong's utopianism and politics and finally the rise of dystopian writing - a negative expression of the utopian impulse - in Europe and America as well as in China"--Page 4 of cover
Knowledge and commitment : a problem-oriented approach to literary studies by Douwe Wessel Fokkema( )

18 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The authors present a new perspective on a wide range of issues in the study of literature and culture. Some of the topics discussed, such as interpretation, canon formation, and literary historiography, belong to the traditional domain of literary studies. Others - cultural identity, convention, systems theory, and empirical methods - originate in the social sciences and are now being integrated into the humanities. The authors argue for a distinction between analysis of literary systems on the one hand and critical intervention on the other. By distinguishing between research and criticism, between knowledge and commitment, they offer new ways for literary studies as well as for cultural critique."--Jacket
Cultural participation : trends since the Middle Ages by Ann Rigney( )

12 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 1,549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Met lit. opg. - Met reg. Topics include the social distribution of cultural activities, popularism and elitism in modern aesthetics, the nature of cultural competence and the channels through which it is acquired, the impact of electronic media on traditional modes of cultural involvement, the role of public institutions such as churches, schools and libraries in stimulating participation, and the relationship between cultural participation and socialisation. Most of the contributions concern reading and literary culture
International postmodernism : theory and literary practice by Johannes Willem Bertens( )

18 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive study does not expressly focus on American postmodernism, although American interpretations of postmodernism are a major point of reference. The recognition that varying literary and cultural conditions in this world are bound to produce endless varieties of postmodernism made the editors, Hans Bertens and Douwe Fokkema, opt for the title International Postmodernism
Exploring Postmodernism : selected papers presented at a Workshop on Postmodernism at the 11.th International comparative literature congress, Paris, 20-24 August 1985 by Matei Călinescu( )

7 editions published between 1987 and 1990 in English and held by 1,203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great diversity of contexts in which the term Postmodernism is currently encountered reflects the remarkable success of a coinage that has been in circulation for only about forty years. It has been used by philosophers, sociologists, art critics and literary historians to become, finally, a household word in the language of advertising and politics. Before letting it fade to a derelict cliché, an attempt is made in this volume of essays to use its potential as a cultural concept for the analysis and understanding of contemporary literature and thought
Innovatie( )

2 editions published in 1990 in Dutch and English and held by 1,014 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deze bundel presenteert interdisciplinair onderzoek rond het thema innovatie. De krititische vragen die L.C. Brinkman, destijds minister van WVC, bij het begrip innovatie in de kunst stelt, worden beantwoord door de theater wetenschapper Henri Schoenmakers. De bijdragen op het gebied van muziek (Paul Op de Coul), architectuur (A.W. Reinink) en de letterkunde (Hans Bertens) gaan in op de spanning tussen conventie en innovatie. Deze spanning is ook de leidraad in het betoog van Johan Somerwil en F. Roos, sprekend vanuit hun ervaring met het uitgeversbedrijf en de wereld van de financïele diensten. De historici H.W. von der Dunk en Pim den Boer relativeren de cultus van het nieuwe. A.D. Wolff-Albers noteert haar reserves tegenover radicale veranderingen in het wetenschapsbeleid. De comparatist Douwe Fokkema en de historicus T. van Tijn onderzoeken regelmatigheden in culturele en conjuncturele vernieuwing. Innovatie bevat het verslag van een in 1988 gehouden symposium, dat heeft geleid to een vruchtbare dialoog over de disciplinegrenzen heen

The search for a new alphabet : literary studies in a changing world : in honor of Douwe Fokkema by Harald Hendrix( Book )

14 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Literary Studies is currently going through a deep transformation, preparing itself for the launch into the twenty-first century. The present volume, which is dedicated to Douwe Fokkema on the occasion of his retirement from Utrecht University, captures this transformation in a number of squibs by a select international group of scholars. Topics dealt with are: canon formation, conventions, cultural relativism, hermeneutics vs. empirical studies, and the problem of values, all themes very much central to current discussions in comparative literature and literary theory. Taken together they form
