The Turkish turn in contemporary German literature : toward a new critical grammar of migration by Leslie A Adelson( )

16 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Challenging the commonplace that suspends migrants "between two worlds," The Turkish Turn casts a curious eye to complex cultural relations and literary novelties wrought by Turkish migration to Germany. At interpretive and historic crossroads involving dialogue and storytelling, genocide and taboa, and capital and labor in the 1990s, this book illuminates far-reaching imaginative effects that literatures of migration can engender. In critical conversation with Arjun Appadurai, Seyla Benhabib, Homi Bhabha, Rey Chow, Andreas Huyssen, Dominick LaCapra, Doris Sommer, and many others, Adelson probes history and aesthetics as surprisingly twinned indices of national and global transformation at the millennial turn."--Jacket
Cosmic miniatures and the future sense : Alexander Kluge's 21st-century literary experiments in German culture and narrative form by Leslie A Adelson( )

10 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alexander Kluge's revolutionary storytelling for the 21st-century pivots on the production of anti-realist hope under conditions of real catastrophe. Rather than relying on possibility alone, his experimental miniatures engender counterfactual horizons of futurity that are made incrementally accessible to lived experience through narrative form. Innovative close readings and theoretical reflection alike illuminate the dimensional quality of future time in Kluge's radical prose, where off-worldly orientation and unnatural narrative together yield new sensory perspectives on associative networks, futurity, scale, and perspective itself. This study also affords new perspectives on the importance of Kluge's creative writing for critical studies of German thought (including Kant, Marx, Benjamin, and especially Adorno), Holocaust memory, contemporary globalization, literary miniatures, and narrative studies of futurity as form. Cosmic Miniatures contributes an experiential but non-empirical sense of hope to future studies, a scholarly field of pressing public interest in endangered times. --

Pluriverse( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alexander Kluge sees himself as an author. He inspires his readers, listeners and viewers with his films, texts interviews and much more besides. On the occasion of his 85th birthday, Museum Folkwang is presenting an exhaustive exhibition destined to visualize the core of his multimedia oeuvre. Kluge forges links and then explores through them what makes human beings tick, how we are unique and stubborn, capable of judgement, to what extent history and stories are stored within us, what felt and what real options for action we have, and why our biographies are a currency. Alexander Kluge uses images, texts and objects to create ever new constellations, whose sense or nonsensicality is primarily the product of montage. Kluge allows our imagination to germinate in the interstices between the two poles. Central to him are the links between emotion and reason, and he is forever hunting down the theoretical in everyday life

Ethnic Europe : mobility, identity, and conflict in a globalized world by Roland Hsu( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ethnic Europe examines the increasingly complex ethnic challenges facing the expanding European Union. Essays from eleven experts tackle such issues as labor migration, strains on welfare economies, the durability of local traditions, the effects of globalized cultures, and the role of Islamic diasporas, separatist movements, and threats of terrorism. With Europe now a destination for global immigration, European countries are increasingly alert to the difficult struggle to balance minority rights with social cohesion. In pondering these dilemmas, the contributors to this volume take us from theory, history, and broad views of diasporas, to the particularities of neighborhoods, borderlands, and popular literature and film that have been shaped by the mixing of ethnic cultures."--Jacket
German writers and the intermediate-range nuclear forces debate in the 1980s by Anne Marie Stokes( )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout most of the eighties, writers in both German states opposed missile deployment. This study examines their aims and achievements in this effort and investigates the implications of political engagement for the aesthetic production of selected authors. Analysis of press reports, writers' speeches, interviews, essays and literary texts yielded the following results: INF deployment motivated writers of all political persuasions to take up a variety of peace-oriented pursuits. In the early eighties, West and East German writers also met for the first time in over thirty years to discuss how they could help promote nuclear disarmament. Their ongoing public engagement encouraged unofficial peace forces in East Germany, kept the issue of nuclear weapons deployment topical in West Germany when many were preoccupied with economic problems, and helped create a political climate receptive to Gorbachev's disarmament proposals. The same is true of agitational literature of the early eighties that aimed at increasing support for the peace movements and literature in the mid-eighties that explored reasons for the existence of the weapons and for German acceptance of them and recommended a change of outlook. Calls for a new consciousness (by authors such as Gunter Grass and Christa Wolf) were often accompanied and encouraged by literary experimentation, while writers of agitational literature (including Wolf Biermann, Walter Jens, Stefan Heym, and Eberhard Panitz) employed forms and motifs common to earlier political literature

Citing Sten Nadolny's novel "Selim oder Die Gabe der Rede" (1990), Adelman traces the history of the German/Turkish opposition in Germany and Europe, then reflects on this in light of the struggle to define the new German identity and the role of Turkey in the European community since the reunification. Parallels to other binary oppositions, primarily the Nazi/Jew polarity, are raised. Moderator is John Borneman, professor of anthropology, Cornell
