Prof. Dr. Leslie Adelson

[Cornell University, Department of German Studies, Professor and Director of the Institute for German Cultural Studies]

E-Mail: laa10[at]cornell.edu

Forschungsinteressen: 
  • German literature from 1945 to the present; literatures of migration; postcolonial theory and German Studies; Jewish Studies; literary theory, social theory, and cultural history; feminist theory and women's literature. Address: 188 Goldwin Smith Hall; Telephone: (607) 255-8540;

Über Prof. Leslie A. Adelson:

  • Professor Adelson’s teaching and research concentrate on German literature from 1945 to the present and additionally reflectinterdisciplinary as well as transnational approaches to culture and history. Her focal interests include German literature of the post-war and post-socialist eras, emergent literatures often associated with minority and migrant populations (especially regarding Jews and Turks), and postcolonial theories of difference and approximation. New research projects revolve around the literary imagination as a form of labor and the conceit of futurity in German literature of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Former chair of the Department of German Studies, Prof. Adelson currently directs Cornell’s interdisciplinary Institute for German Cultural Studies.
    B.A. Smith College, 1974; Ph.D. Washington University,1982) has been Professor of German Studies at Cornell University since 1996, where she is also a Graduate Field member of Women's Studies, Jewish Studies, Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies,and Comparative Literature. She teaches modern German literature with an emphasis on literature since 1945, as well as critical, feminist, and postcolonial theories of culture and history. Before moving to Cornell, she taught at the Ohio State University from 1982 until 1996 and as a Visiting Professor at the University of California at Irvine in 1986. Her recent research focuses on minority discourses and migrant cultures in postwar Germany, especially those concerning Jews and Turks, and on interdisciplinary German cultural studies. Adelson's first book, Crisis of Subjectivity (1984), was the first scholarly monograph to deal with the literary prose of Botho Strauß. In 1994 the Modern Language Association of America awarded her the Aldo and Jeanne Scaglione Prize for an Outstanding Scholarly Study in the Field of Germanic Languages and Literatures for her book, Making Bodies, Making History: Feminism and German Identity(1994). Adelson held research fellowships from the Alexander von Humboldt foundation in 1987 and 1992. For over a decade she has served on the editorial boards of the Women in German Yearbook, the German Quarterly, and the New German Critique. From 1992 through 1996 she also served on the Executive Committee of the MLA Division on 20th Century German Literature. For her overall contributions to the field of postwar German cultural studies Adelson received the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) Prize for Distinguished Scholarship in 1996.

J
an Banning
[Artist / Photographer, New York, Homepage]

Zur Person:

  • Jan Banning (1954) is a Dutch artist/photographer, based in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
    Jan was born in Almelo (Netherlands) on May 4, 1954, from Dutch East Indies parents. He studied social and economic history at the University of Nijmegen. Both of these facts have had a strong influence on his photographic works.
    His origin is expressed in the choice of subjects, such as Indonesian women who were forced to become prostitutes for the Japanese army during the Second World War in ‘Comfort Women’; or former forced labourers in South East Asia during the same period in ‘Traces of War: Survivors of the Burma and Sumatra Railways’; also the repatriation of elderly Moluccans from the Netherlands to the Indonesian Moluccas in ‘Pulang: Back to Maluku’.
    His study of history can be seen in the historical components of his subject matters. His academic education is expressed in his aim to achieve sound intellectual foundations for his projects on the basis of a thorough preliminary investigation. De Volkskrant reviewer Merel Bem wrote: ‘Each subject that Banning approaches (…), the photographer dives right in with the passion of a scientist’; and ‘This investigative approach might be an explanation for the fact that the form is a direct, concentrated and controlled result from the content’ (in De Volkskrant 8-5-2010, review of ‘Comfort Women’).
    This academic basis can also be seen in his often conceptual approach and his regular use of the typological method (visual research in which he looks for variations within a tightly repeated form). Jean Dykstra wrote (in Art on Paper, Sept/Oct. 2008): ‘Borrowed from the methodology of science, it allows for differences to emerge within a category of similar things.’
    Banning’s work always has a social focus. The social political environment is put at the fore and it often concerns subjects that have been neglected within the arts and are difficult to portray: state power, consequences of war, justice and injustice. Sometimes the work is the result of a sociological or anthropological classifying approach, such as ‘Bureaucratics’, a comparative study of the world of government officials. Other times he focuses more on the psychological aspects; on the divergent influence that major social events have on individuals (‘Comfort Women’, ‘Traces of War’, ‘Down and Out in the South’).
    His projects usually have a personal point of departure, but are never ‘private’: he places the subjects that stem from his private life in a larger social context. To give an example: the history of Banning’s father and grandfather who were forced to do hard labour during the war is not only limited to something biographical related to those two family members, but instead it is broadened into a research into the long-term influence of abuse and humiliation on European and Asian labour slaves (‘Traces of War’).
    Banning’s art work has been acquired by museums such as the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX; the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam (for more on collections, see here).
    It has been published in print media such as The New Yorker, Newsweek, Time, The Guardian Weekend, Sunday Times Magazine, GEO, l’Espresso, Vrij Nederland and many others.
    For a selection of his exhibitions, click here.
    Aside from Dutch, Banning is fluent in English, German and Spanish, and speaks French reasonably well. He is living in the Dutch city of Utrecht.

VortrÄge/Seminare/Workshops/Konferenzen:

  • 18. Juni 2014: Vortrag im Begleitprogramm der Ausstellung „Bureaucratics“ von Jan Banning, Jan Banning (New York): “Gott und Gold. Die religiösen Ursprünge der neuen Bürokratie“. Der Germanist Dr. Christoph Bartmann ist seit 2011 Direktor des Goethe-Instituts New York und der Region Nordamerika. 2012 ist sein viel beachtetes Buch „Leben im Büro. Die schöne neue Welt der Angestellten“ im Carl Hanser Verlag erschienen. Seit über 20 Jahren selbst Angestellter im Öffentlichen Dienst, schreibt er aus eigener Erfahrung. Sein Buch enthält eine Art Anthropologie des modernen Büromenschen. Bartmann entwirft das Bild eines Büros von heute, in dem eine Trennung von Arbeits-und Freizeitsphäre nicht mehr möglich ist, weil der Angestellte die umfassende Vereinnahmung durch das Büro verinnerlicht hat. Das moderne Büro sei infolge dieser Verinnerlichung allgegenwärtig, so seine These.

Short CV
Ph.D. Harvard University, 1989
John Borneman has conducted fieldwork in Germany and Central Europe, and is currently engaged in research in Lebanon and Syria. He has completed projects on the symbolic forms of political identification, the relation of the state to everyday life, forms of justice and accountability, and on regime change. Currently he is working on an anthropology of secularism. From 1991 to 2001 he taught at Cornell University, and has been guest professor at the University of California, Berkeley; Stockholm University (Sweden); Bergen University (Norway); guest professor at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris (France); Fulbright Professor at Humboldt Universitaet zu Berlin (Germany) and the University of Aleppo (Syria). He has written widely on kinship, sexuality, nationality, and political form, with an ethnographic focus on Germany--and currently Lebanon. His most recent publications include Belonging in the Two Berlins: Kin, State, Nation (1992); Settling Accounts: Violence, Justice, and Accountability in Postsocialist States (1997); Subversions of International Order: Studies in the Political Anthropology of Culture (1998); Death of the Father: Toward an Anthropology of the End in Political Authority (2003), and The Case of Ariel Sharon and the Fate of Universal Jurisdiction (2004).

  • Teilnahme an Workshop: Regimes of Ignorance: Anthropological Perspectives on the Reproduction of Non-Knowledge“ Workshop im Rahmen des Schwerpunktthemas Nichtwissen am Kulturwissenschaftlichen Kolleg . Organisiert von Prof. Dr.Roy Dilley (St. Andrews University), Prof. Dr. Thomas Kirsch (Konstanz).
    Zum Programm: http://www.exc16.de/cms/uploads/media/Nichtwissen-Workshops-2012_01.pdf Regime des Wissens sind zugleich Regime der Ignoranz: Indem sie zulässige und gültige Formen und Gegenstände des Wissens anweisen, bestimmen sie auch, was nicht gewusst werden kann oder soll. Nichtwissen steht insofern nicht im Gegensatz zu Wissen, sondern verhält sich dazu komplementär. Die Vorstellung, im Zuge der Wissenserzeugung werde fortschreitend ein dunkler Kontinent des Nichtwissens kolonisiert, führt demnach in die Irre. Wissen und Ignoranz bedingen sich wechselseitig in einem sozialen und politischen Raum partieller und wechselhafter Beziehungen. Im Lichte dieser „Ökologie des Nichtwissens“ sind die sozialen Praktiken der Produktion und Reproduktion von Nichtwissen zu untersuchen, die Praktiken der ethnographischen Beschreibung und ethnologischen Analyse einschließen, denn auch die akademische Wissensproduktion wirft einen Schatten der Ignoranz.

Forschungsinteressen:
Forschungsschwerpunkt im Bereich deutsch-jüdischer und jüdisch-amerikanischer Literatur.
Seine bisherige Forschung verbindet Literatur- und Kulturgeschichte, insbesondere der jüdischen Minderheit im deutschsprachigen Kulturgebiet mit der Theorie der modernen Text- und Bildmedien in Europa und Amerika. Bisher sind sowohl mehrere Zeitschriften- und Buchaufsätze als auch eine Monographie erschienen. Ein weiteres Buch befindet sich zurzeit im Reviewverfahren. Sein erstes aus der Doktorarbeit hervorgehendes Buch, Marketing Identities: The Invention of Jewish Ethnicity , wurde 1998 im Verlag der Wayne State University veröffentlicht. Marketing Identities integriert Ansätze zu Kultur- bzw. Mediengeschichte und untersucht dabei das europäische Judentum in dessen diskursiver Begegnung mit der westlichen Moderne. Ein zweites Buch, Kafka's Kitsch: German-Jewish Popular Culture before the Holocaust (zurzeit im Reviewverfahren an der University of California Press) befasst sich mit der Entwicklung einer der ersten einschlägigen Minderheitskulturen im Westen, hier des deutschsprachigen Judentums. Im Werk werden die Lebenswelten deutschspracher Jüdinnen und Juden bis zum Vorabend des Nationalsozialismus analysiert und deren komplexe Auseinandersetzungen mit Roman, Kino und Medien interpretiert. Momentan schließt er eine dritte Monographie zum Themenkomplex "Hollywood" und "Holocaust" ab.

  • 16. Juli 2013, Statistische Evidenz, Workshop mit Prof. Rüdiger Campe (Yale University), Universität Konstanz, Beginn: 14.00 Uhr.
    Die Statistik hat sich seit dem 17. Jahrhundert sehr unterschiedlicher Darstellungsformen bedient. Verbale Beschreibungen und Zahlentabellen etwa wurden um 1800 auch polemisch einander entgegen gesetzt. Dass „nichts mit der Wortphrase geschildert und beschrieben, sondern Alles mit der Zahlenangabe gemessen“ werden solle, war spätestens Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts die vorherrschende Meinung. Vor diesem Hintergrund ist es bemerkenswert, dass die unterschiedlichen Darstellungsformen rhetorikterminologisch auf einen gemeinsamen Nenner gebracht worden sind. Und mehr noch: auch das Zahlenrechnen kann als ein „Vor-Augen-Stellen“ begriffen werden. Lassen die unvereinbar scheinenden Formen der Statistik sich also rhetoriktheoretisch vergleichen und sogar auf eine gemeinsame Wurzel zurückführen?

    Was heißt Erzählen? Diese scheinbar simple Frage beschäftigt nicht mehr nur die Philologen, sondern spielt auch in der Geschichts- und Sozialwissenschaft eine wachsende Rolle, die in den achziger Jahren einen narrative turn ausriefen und den homo narrans das Licht der Welt erblicken ließen. Insoweit unsere Welt eine kulturelle Konstruktion ist, stellt das Erzählen einen, wenn nicht den wichtigsten Schlüssel zur Welterzeugung dar. Weitere Informationen zum Seminar unter Veranstaltungen.

CV:
Reaching back into biography, I could say I became a sociologist because as a preacher’s son I moved to a new town every few years. Each move meant figuring out new culture and social structure. As an adult, I came to sociology after degrees in anthropology and history, drawn by the openness of sociology, by its deeper engagement with social theory, and by its orientation to understanding basic social problems and informing action to address them.
Perhaps because of this background, I have always been puzzled by sociologists who prefer narrow disciplinarity to bringing together all the possible intellectual resources for their work, or who oppose disciplinary science to problem-oriented research. I think we advance sociology best by conceiving our work as a confrontation with the most important and most basic social issues, and carrying it out in ways informed at once by both theory and empirical research. We must set high standards for ourselves, but in order to inform the public well not to isolate ourselves from it.

Jennifer Dixon

PhD Candidate, Political Science University of California, Berkeley

Forschungsinteressen:

  • International relations and comparative politics, politics of memory and the construction of national identity

“My fields of concentration are international relations and comparative politics. Broadly speaking, I am interested in the politics of memory and the construction of national identity. Specifically, I am interested in how states remember, forget, teach and commemorate the past; in how states construct and disseminate ideas and myths about the nation and citizenship; and in the consequences of these constructed memories and identities for both domestic and foreign policy. My dissertation is an in-depth, qualitative analysis of the sources of change in official narratives of traumatic historical events. Tracing changes over a 50-plus-year period, I am studying official narratives in Turkey and Japan. In my research, I am investigating the impact of a variety of domestic and international factors on particular narratives, trying to identify which factors influence changes in official narratives, and which reinforce continuity in such narratives. I received a BA in Government from Dartmouth College in 1999, and worked in New York for four years before starting graduate school. I speak Turkish, along with some French and German.”

Prof. Dr. Brigid Doherty

[Associate Professor, Princeton University, Departments of Art and Archaeology and Germanic Languages and Literature, Princeton University, Ph.D. University of California, Berkeley, 1996]

E-Mail: bdoherty[at]Princeton.EDU

Forschungsinteressen:
Before coming to Princeton in 2003, Brigid Doherty was Associate Professor of the History of Art and Humanities at Johns Hopkins University. In 2005, she held the inaugural Research Forum Visiting Professorship at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London, and in 2006-2007 she was the David and Roberta Logie Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute at Harvard University and an Affiliate Scholar at the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute. A member of the Steering Committees of the Programs in Media & Modernity, European Cultural Studies, and the Study of Women and Gender at Princeton, she focuses her research and teaching on the interdisciplinary study of modern and contemporary art, literature, and film, with special emphasis on relationships among the visual arts, literature, and aesthetic theory in German modernism.
Recently, with her German Department colleagues Michael W. Jennings and Thomas Y. Levin, she co-edited a volume of writings by Walter Benjamin, The Work of Art in the Age of Its Technological Reproducibility and Other Writings on Media, which was published by Harvard University Press in 2008. Also in 2008, she participated in Manifesta 7, the European Biennial of Contemporary Art, in Trento, Italy, contributing a project called “The Museum of Learning Things,” which examined ways in which avant-garde artists and philosophers Germany and Austria in the 1920s variously engaged, adapted, and set out to renovate techniques of teaching and learning that had been developed in the nineteenth-century under the rubric of Anschauungsunterricht (a term that has been translated, since the mid-nineteenth century, as “instruction in perception”, “object-teaching”, “teaching through the senses”, and “training the senses”).
Doherty’s current research is connected to a book project, “Homesickness for Things,” which explores how, in 20th-century German modernism and its present-day aftermath, objects, among them persons and works of art, become containers for fantasies of return to a maternal body or family home (each broadly conceived, in material as well as symbolic terms). The project further explores how such fantasies come, in turn, to provide a basis for various ethical and political positions with regard to our understanding of history. “Homesickness for Things” situates the work of writers and artists, including the early 20th-century poet Rainer Maria Rilke and contemporary artist Hanne Darboven, in relation to theories of “projective identification” and related phenomena of thinking, feeling, and intersubjectivity in psychoanalysis.

  • Der Einbruch des Realen, IFK, 1010 Wien Teilnahme und Vortrag.Brigid Doherty :
    Raphaels „Sixtinische Madonna“ um 1920.
    Über den Wiederbesuch einer „Revelatio“ als „Einbruch des Realen“ Brigid Doherty fragt nach der durch die Collage- bzw. Montagetechnik  ermöglichten (Um)verwendung einiger Reproduktionen von Raphaels „Sixtinischer Madonna“ (1512–13) in zwei um 1920 in Deutschland entstandenen Kunstwerken: George Grosz„ „Germania ohne Hemd“ und Kurt
    Schwitters „Merzzeichnung 151“ („Wenzelkind Madonna mit Pferd“). Sich stützend auf theoretische Einsichten Louis Marins und kunsthistorische Recherchen Johann Konrad Eberleins hat Daniel Arasse das Verhältnis zwischen Raphaels Gemälde und dem theologischen Konzept der „revelatio“ bereits untersucht und die „Sixtinische Madonna“ dabei als
    herausragendes Beispiel einer „présentation de la répresentation“ in der Tradition der Europäischen Malerei seit der Renaissance bestimmt.
    Brigid Dohertys Beitrag greift das „dispositif“ der „revelatio“ und der „présentation de la répresentation“ auf, um zu prüfen, wie die (Um)verwendung bzw. Darstellung dieser Reproduktionen hinsichtlich
    eines „Einbruchs des Realen“ im Sinne des Tagungsthemas verstanden
    werden kann.
    In diesem Zusammenhang geht sie auf die von Walter Benjamin in einer Fußnote der dritten Fassung seines Essays „Das Kunstwerk im Zeitalter seiner technischen Reproduzierbarkeit“ (1936–39) aufgeworfene Frage nach dem „Ausstellungswert“ der „Sixtinischen Madonna“ ein. Benjamin versteht den Ausstellungswert des Gemäldes als etwas, das in der Art
    und Weise seiner spezifischen Inszenierung realisiert ist, nämlich in der Tatsache, dass die gemalte Figur der Madonna so aussieht, als stehe sie kurz davor, aus dem Bildraum heraus- und in den tatsächlichen Ausstellungsraum hineinzusteigen: Sie ist eine „arca Dei“, die jungfräuliche Trägerin der „revelatio“ des fleischgewordenen Wortes, die dem Betrachter des Gemäldes so gegenübertritt, als ob sie im Begriff stehe, den realen Raum des Betrachters zu betreten.
    Abschließend behandelt Brigid Doherty Schwitters' und Grosz'Verarbeitungen von Reproduktionen der „Sixtinischen Madonna“ in Relation zu dem jeweiligen historischen Kontext, in dem Raphaels Bild – sei es als Original oder als Reproduktion – so ausgestellt oder als  ausstellbar imaginiert wurde, dass seine Ausstellung selbst als ein Einbruch des Realen fassbar wird.

ANNA Grigorievna DOLGANOV  

[PhD Student, Department of Classic Studies, Princeton University, Homepage]

E-Mail: dolganov@princeton.edu

Zur Person/Forschungsinteressen:

  • “I have wide-ranging interests in Greek and Roman social and cultural history. I received my B.A. in Classics at Harvard University (2005) with a senior thesis on dynastic succession and the transmission of imperial power in Tacitus' Annals, which also treated Tacitus' engagement with the annalistic tradition. I then pursued an MPhil in Ancient History at King's College, Cambridge as a Gates Cambridge Scholar (2005-6) where I did work primarily in Late Republican history, with papers on the politics of Cicero's literary production, a project on Sulla's gold coinage, and an MPhil thesis on the memory and legacy of the Social War. I am currently engaged in a PhD dissertation tentatively entitled "Legally Roman: Legal Culture and Imperial Rule in the Age of the Severi." This project examines the law as an aspect of Roman imperial culture through case studies in North Africa and Egypt in the Severan period, situated at the end of a long second century. Central to the thesis is the problem of modelling the relationship between legislation and the law as social practice - a problem that legal historians of Roman Egypt initially obviated by positing a strong dichotomy between imperial and local law (Reichsrecht and Volksrecht). Furthermore, issues of imperial culture and acculturation place the thesis in the ambit of the Romanization debate. 
  • In addition to my primary research interests in Roman imperial history and juristic papyrology, I have an outstanding project on Procopius' engagement with classical historiography, as well as papers and long-term research interests in Varro and Late Republican antiquarianism and in the social history of Epicurean philosophy. My teaching experience at Princeton includes two 4-week intensive tutorials in accelerated Latin for graduate students in the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures (2007 and 2008) and CLA 218: "The Roman Republic" (2009). I have also taught an introductory course in Roman Law ("Römisches Recht: eine Einführung") at the University of Konstanz (2011) during research time spent in Germany last academic year. I look forward to teaching Latin 108: "The Origins of Rome: Livy and Vergil" at Princeton this spring (2012).”

Educational and Professional Background:

  • Dr. Walter Dorn is a Professor of Defence Studies at the CFC and the Royal Military College of Canada. He serves as Chair of the Department of Security and International Affairs at CFC. In the past, he served at CFC as co-chair of the Department of Security Studies and as Deputy Director of Outreach and Community Development. He is also Chair of Canadian Pugwash, an organization of physical, life and social scientists seeking to reduce the threats to global security.
    Dr. Dorn is a scientist by training, with a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Toronto, whose doctoral research was aimed at chemical sensing for arms control verification. He assisted with the negotiation, ratification and implementation of the 1993 Chemical Weapons Convention while working as programme coordinator at Parliamentarians for Global Action (1992-93). He addressed parliamentary bodies on several continents to support the ratification and implementation of this arms control treaty and drafted a parliamentary declaration that was subsequently signed by a thousand parliamentarians.
    His interests are now broader, covering both international and human security, especially peacekeeping and the United Nations. As an “operational professor,” he has gained direct experience in field missions. In 1999, he was a district electoral officer with the United Nations Mission in East Timor. He also served with the United Nations in Ethiopia and at UN headquarters in New York as a Training Adviser with UN's Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO). He carried out DPKO-sponsored field research in peacekeeping operations in the Congo, Cyprus, Guatemala, Haiti, and Lebanon.
    Since 1983, he has served as the UN Representative of Science for Peace, a Canadian NGO, and addressed the UN General Assembly in 1988 at the Second UN Special Session on Disarmament. In the United States, he was a Senior Research Fellow at Cornell University (Einaudi Centre for International Studies, 1998-2000), a consultant to Yale University (United Nations Studies, 1996), a visiting scholar at the Cooperative Monitoring Centre (Sandia National Laboratories, NM, 1999) and adviser to the Federation of American Scientists (Biological Weapons Control expert group, 1990). At the Pearson Peacekeeping Centre, he has designed and taught the course, Live, Move and Work: Technology and Engineering in Modern Peacekeeping. At the University of Toronto, he was a Research Fellow with the International Relations Programme and the Peace and Conflict Studies Programme (1994-96).
    In 2001-2012, he was awarded the inaugural Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Human Security Fellowship.
    In 2011, he finished writing a book titled Keeping Watch: Monitoring, Technology, and Innovation in UN Peace Operations. In coming years, he plans to complete a related book on a broader theme, tentatively titled The Emerging Global Watch: UN Monitoring for International Peace and Human Security. It will analyse the monitoring methods for conflicts, sanctions, elections, human rights and global security more generally.

Dr. marco duranti

[PhD, Department of History, Yale University, Homepage]

E-Mail: marco.duranti@yale.edu

Forschungsinteressen:

  • Geschichte und Gedächtnis
  • Dr. Marco Duranti works under the supervision of Jay Winter (primary advisor), Ute Frevert, John Gaddis and Frank Snowden. His dissertation, tentatively entitled "Human Rights and the European Dilemma, 1945-1955", investigates Western European attitudes towards international human rights initiatives in the decade after the Second World War. It argues that the rise and fall of interest in such initiatives, both within civil society and political institutions, stemmed primarily from a conflict over the political and cultural boundaries of 'Europe'. The narrative focuses on negotiations within the United Nations and the Council of Europe over the creation of an International Court of Human Rights and a European Court of Human Rights, respectively. Although the dissertation is a work of transnational and comparative history, it stresses France as the driving force behind the initial progress of Western European human rights projects and their subsequent eclipse during the escalation of decolonization and the Cold War.
  • Marco Duranti spent the 2005-06 academic year on a Fulbright fellowship to the European University Institute in Florence. During this time, he conducted research in the Historical Archives of the European Communities, the Italian state archives and archives of various Catholic organizations. He is currently spending the 2006-07 academic year on a Fox International Fellowship to Sciences Po in Paris, examining documents in the French state archives, UNESCO archives, and the archives of the Council of Europe.
  • Marco Duranti has published an article entitled, "Utopia, Nostalgia and World War at the 1939-40 New York World's Fair" in the Journal of Contemporary History (October 2006). He is currently writing a piece on how the Algerian War influenced French policy towards human rights initiatives in the United Nations and Council of Europe.

  • Sommersemester 2012, Gastseminar: The uses of art and the art of history: Benjamin and Adorno
    Termine:  mittwochs und freitags nachmittags in der zweiten Semesterhälfte (20.6., 22.6., 27.6, 29.6., 4.7., 11.7., 13.7., 18.7., 20.7.)
    Course description: 
    This course will focus on the themes of aesthetics and historicism in the work of Benjamin and Adorno. We will begin with Benjamin’s famous essay on the artwork, where he traces the history of the art work in terms of its historical functions and the forms of attention it required and enforced. For Adorno, Benjamin precisely sacrifices the artwork’s autonomy in his account, which Adorno locates in the very form of the work and sees as a placeholder for possibilities beyond the deformed world of modernity. Hence we will also consider in detail what “form” means for Adorno. On the other hand, Benjamin’s historical “method”, i.e. a reformulated historical materialism, is discontinuous and precisely not developmental. For Adorno, in contrast, the “dialectical image” and Benjamin’s historical style are precisely too punctual, disembedded and undertheorized. Thus the topics of formalism and historiography are intertwined throughout their exchanges at several levels.
    Literatur:
    Syllabus and complete reading list to be provided. Works will include Benjamin’s “Das Kunstwerk im Zeitalter seiner technischen Reproduzierbarkeit,” “Der Autor als Produzent,” and “Über den Begriff der Geschichte, and Adorno’s “Engagement,” “Essay als Form,” correspondence between Benjamin and Adorno, and select secondary materials.

Prof. Dr. Christiane Frey

[Assistant Professor of German, Princeton University]

E-Mail: cfrey@Princeton.edu

Forschungsinteressen/Short CV:
Dr. Christiane Frey studied Comparative and German Literatures, French and Italian Philology with minor concentrations in Philosophy and Theology mainly in Bonn, Paris, Perugia and Giessen. She received her M. A. from the University of Paris Sorbonne (Lettres comparées) and studied for her Ph.D. at the University of Bonn (Neuere deutsche Literaturwissenschaften). Her teaching and research interests focus on the correlations between aesthetics and anthropology (in the 18th century sense of the word, meaning a conception of man based on medical knowledge) from the late 16th to the early 19th centuries, especially around 1800. Other interests are the idea of Kallipädie around 1900; the history of educating and testing intellectual talents (Prüfung der Köpfe) since the Renaissance; and concepts of time from Friedrich Schiller to Victor Hugo. Her dissertation was titled Laune: Inkonstanz und Individualität in Ästhetik und Anthropologie um 1800. She is currently revising it for publication. Her current long-term project concerns the function and rhetoric of secularization and the survival of Jewish-Christian dichotomies from Luther to Derrida. In 2003, she co-edited a book on Darstellbarkeit: Zu einem ästhetisch-philosophischen Problem um 1800 (Würzburg: Königshausen & Neumann). Forthcoming are articles on “Fallgeschichte(n) in Karl Philipp Moritz and Philippe Pinel” and on “Poetological Reflexions in Paul Valéry and Rainer Maria Rilke,” as well as an internet lexicon of works relating to the history of knowledge.

  • Blockseminar: Säkularisierung: zur Geschichte und Aktualität der Debatte
    Prof. Dr. Christiane Frey (Princeton University),  Dr. Uwe Hebekus  (UniversitÄt Konstanz), Prof. Dr. David Martyn  (Macalester College)

    Spätestens seit dem Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts dient der Begriff der Säkularisierung als master trope zur normativen Selbstbeschreibung des (europäischen) Westens. Konstruiert wird die eigene Kultur als eine solche, in der Religion allenfalls noch der Status einer Privatangelegenheit zukommen darf, aus dem öffentlichen bzw. politischen Sektor jedoch tunlichst herauszuhalten ist. Gesetzt ist damit nahezu zwangsläufig das Negativbild und die Kontrastfolie solcher Gesellschaften, die sich nach westlicher Einschätzung religiös legitimiert sehen wollen und die damit à la limite fundamentalistisch seien. Gegenwärtig zeugt im Westen etwa die Debatte um den Islam als politische Religion von der noch immer ungebrochenen normativen Virulenz und polemischen Ausrichtung des Säkuarisierungsbegriffs. Zugleich aber mehren sich aktuell nicht-westliche und außereuropäische Stimmen, welche die kategoriale Basis der westlichen Säkularisierungsagenda dekonstruieren wollen, indem sie argumentieren, diese speise sich selber aus einer bestimmten Ausprägung von Religion, nämlich dem Protestantismus. Das Seminar, das sich v.a. an theoretisch und theoriegeschichtlich interessierte Studierende der Fächer/Studiengänge Geschichtswissenschaft, Kulturelle Grundlagen Europas und Neuere Deutsche Literatur richtet, will beidem nachgehen: der Geschichte ebenso wie der Aktualität der Säkularisierungsdebatte. Das zeitliche Spektrum der zu diskutierenden Autoren reicht dabei vom frühen 19. Jahrhundert (z.B. Hegel) bis in die unmittelbare Gegenwart (z.B. Gil Anidjar).
    Das Kompaktseminar ist eine Kooperationsveranstaltung des Macalester College/USA, der Princeton University/USA und der Universität Konstanz, denen die drei DozentInnen angehören. Es findet auf Deutsch statt. Die Teilnehmerzahl soll auf max. 30 beschränkt werden Ein Reader mit den Seminartexten steht ab dem 15. Juni zur Verfügung. Die Seminartermine sind: Di 24. Juli, Do 26 Juli, Di 31. Juli, Do 2. August (jeweils von 10-12 Uhr und von 14-18 Uhr). Anmeldung zum Seminar nach dem Vorbesprechungstermin (s.o.) und bis spätestens zum 31.

  • Hauptseminar "Karl Philipp Moritz: Anton Reiser"
    Dr. Eva Blome und Gesa Frömming, PhD, University of Notre Dame, USA
    Termine: 27./28. Mai und 3./4. Juni.2012, jeweils 10-16 h
    "Er ist wie ein jüngerer Bruder von mir", schrieb Goethe über Karl Philipp Moritz, "nur da vom Schicksal verwahrlost und beschädigt, wo ich begünstigt und vorgezogen bin." Nirgends zeigt sich das wohl deutlicher als in Moritz' "psychologischem Roman" Anton Reiser (1785-1790). Der in großen Teilen autobiographische Text beschreibt die Kindheits- und Bildungsjahre eines jungen Mannes, der "von der Wiege an unterdrückt" wurde. Aufgewachsen in ärmlichen Verhältnissen, von den Eltern vernachlässigt und durch repressives religiöses Sektierertum verstört, flüchtet sich Anton bereits als Kind in literarische Welten. Der spätere Ehrgeiz des Schülers und schließlich Studenten ist von der ökonomischen und psychologischen Notwendigkeit getrieben, sich gesellschaftliche Anerkennung als Autor und Gelehrter zu verschaffen. So gerät Anton Reiser zu einem Anti-Bildungsroman, der darstellt, dass der durch Stipendien ermöglichte Besuch von Gymnasium und Universität zwar einen Weg aus erdrückenden Lebensumständen ermöglicht, aber den Helden nicht als ein ganzes Individuum in der Gesellschaft entstehen lässt, sondern zu "Ich"-Schwäche und Selbstdiskriminierung führt. Im Seminar werden wir uns mit Reisers Bildungsgang und dessen gesellschaftlicher Bedingtheit beschäftigen. In Auszügen sollen Reisers Lektürestationen nachvollzogen werden; außerdem werden wir die für den Roman einschlägigen Thematiken von Lesesucht, Theater- und Reiseleidenschaft in ihrem historischen Kontext analysieren. Schließlich wird uns Reisers Oszillieren zwischen der quälenden Wirklichkeit und der Welt seiner Einbildungskraft, sowie die damit verbundene Melancholieproblematik beschäftigen. Dabei gilt es insbesondere die Literarizität des Textes zu berücksichtigen, so etwa das Verhältnis von Reisers exzessiver Selbstbeobachtung zur Beobachtung seiner Figur durch den Erzähler.
    Zur Vorbesprechung wird die Lektüre von Anton Reiser vorausgesetzt. Zur Anschaffung empfohlene Ausgabe: Karl Philipp Moritz: Anton Reiser. Dichtungen und Schriften zur Erfahrungsseelenkunde (Deutscher Klassiker Verlag; 2006; ISBN: 978-3-618-68008-6; 18 €)

Research Topics:

  • 20th century German literature and cinema
  • transnational connections in world cinema, particularly German-Turkish-European-American cultural traffic
  • visual media old and new – from early cinema to contemporary video art and digital archives
  • authorship, spectatorship and reception
  • intertextuality and intermediality
  • migration and interaction
  • globalization, im/mobility and mediations of place
  • translation and untranslatability
  • theories of diversity and nationalism
  • rituals of regulating identity, authority and movement (i.e. passports, uniforms)
  • comedy and community

Deniz Göktürk is currently working on a book tentatively titled Disguise in Diaspora: Transnational Aspects of Comedy and Community. A preliminary article toward this book has been published in a special issue of New German Critique on "Multicultural Germany: Art, Performance, and Media" (92: Spring/Summer 2004) that she co-edited. She has assembled a research group at Berkeley around questions of migration, citizenship, and multiculturalism. Germany in Transit. Nation and Migration, 1955-2005, a co-edited sourcebook (with Anton Kaes and David Gramling) that grew out of this project, is currently in press with UC Press and will be published in December 2006. Papers from an international conference that she co-organized at Berkeley have been published in the inaugural issue of TRANSIT, the new electronic journal launched by the German Department.

Prof. Dr. DR. h.C. mult. Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht
[Albert Guérard Professor in Literature in the Departments of Comparative Literature, of French & Italian, of Spanish & Portuguese (by courtesy), and he is affiliated with German Studies, the Program in Modern Thought & Literature, and HPST, Stanford, Homepage]

E-mail: sepp@stanford.edu

Informationen

Professor Gumbrecht is also Professeur Associé au Département de Littérature comparée at the Université de Montréal, Directeur d'études associé at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (Paris), Professeur attaché au Collège de France, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences.

Background and Current Research

Medieval "literature" and culture; Spanish, French, German, and (to a lesser extent) Italian literatures since the Renaissance; Argentinian and Brazilian literatures in the 19th and 20th centuries; Aesthetics; History of Ideas, History of Scholarship

Current Projects

In Praise of Athletic Beauty. Departing from the hypothesis that it is aesthetic pleasure, and more specifically: the pleasure that we take from experiencing "epiphanies of form," which, week after week, brings millions of spectators to our stadiums and to the screen, I will try to develop a new aesthetics of sport. The forthcoming book (2004) will be introduced by a historical survey-and may be supplemented by an anthology of texts about the historical relationships between athletics and philosophical thought.
2. Post-World War II essay: a foundational moment in western intellectual history. At first glance (and this "first glance" has dominated historiography over the past half-century), the impression prevails that, from an intellectual point of view, the years after 1945 were much less incisive, much less of a "turn-around" than the years following World War I. There is, however, at least one intellectual "tone" (or "movement") that seems to be uniquely related to the post-1945 era: and this is a new life-form of existentialism as a new "style of life." A detailed description of this style of life, in its different national variations, will be the starting point for a historical reconstruction that will try to recover and re-evaluate the long-term influence (an "indirect" influence, perhaps) of the late 1940s on western intellectual history.
3. Program in "Literary and Philosophical Thinking". For several years, now, and in collaboration with a number of colleagues and graduate students from the Philosophy Department and from the Division of Literatures, Cultures, & Languages, we have been developing an undergraduate program that will try to bring together, in a systematic way, classical and contemporary readings from the western philosophical and literary traditions, and, at the same time, instructors and students from the Stanford Departments of Philosophy and of Literatures. It is our-realistic-hope that this program will be inaugurated in the Fall quarter of 2004/2005.

Prof. Dr. DR. Katja GÜnther
[Assistant Professor of History. Johanna and Alfred Hurley, Princeton University, Department of History,Website]  

E-mail: kguenthe@princeton.edu

Forschungsinteressen:

  • “ A Body Made of Nerves – Reflexes, Body Maps, and the Limits of the Self in Modern German Medicine”
  • Katja Guenther specializes in the history of modern medicine and the mind sciences. She is a trained doctor (M.D., University of Cologne) who has worked in hospitals in Germany, France, and the United Kingdom, and holds a research degree in neuroscience (M.Sc., Oxford University). She received a Ph.D. from the Department of the History of Science at Harvard. Her work has been funded by the ACLS/ Mellon Foundation, the Krupp Foundation, the Medical Research Council, and the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes. She came to Princeton in 2009 where she currently holds the Johanna and Alfred Hurley University Preceptorship in History.
  • Professor Guenther’s research focuses on the history of subjectivity and the ways in which modern ideas of the self have been constituted through the interplay of cultural and scientific norms. Her book project, Reflex and Interpretation – A Genealogy of Psychoanalysis and the Neuro Disciplines, c. 1850-1950, explores divergent practices and shared theoretical assumptions within the medicine of mind and brain. Re-conceptualizing the reflex as a clinical and hermeneutic principle, she shows a common heritage for such diverse specialities as neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry and psychoanalysis, and provides new ways for thinking about the relationship between mind and brain in modernity.
  • Professor Guenther will be a Junior Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study Konstanz (Kulturwissenschaftliches Kolleg) in 2012-13.

Prof. Dr. Angela Gutchess
[Assistant Professor of Psychology, Department of Psychology,  Brandeis University, Homepage]

E-mail: gutchess@brandeis.edu

Forschungsinteressen:

  • Life-span development. Culture, aging, and memory
  • „Research in my laboratory explores the effects of age and culture on memory and social processes using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and behavioral measures.  My research on aging and memory explores age differences in the specificity and accuracy of memory and in the plasticity of the neural resources that subserve memory processes.  My previous research demonstrates that older adults can compensate for decreased medial temporal lobe activity by recruiting regions of prefrontal cortex to support encoding.  However, age differences occur at the time of recognition in prefrontal regions when contexts interfere with the recognition of studied objects and in widespread brain regions when similar lures must be distinguished from studied pictures.  My current work addresses the specificity of memory processes by exploring the extent to which 1) age-related deficits occur due to a failure to engage sensory or controlled processes, and 2) the loss of specificity and compensatory mechanisms documented with age for sensory domains also characterizes social domains, functions that are purportedly preserved with age.My research on cross-cultural differences compares cognitive and social processes across East Asian and Western cultures.  My previous fMRI research demonstrates that culture affects object processing, with Americans engaging object-specific regions to a greater extent than East Asians during the encoding of complex scenes.  I have also explored the interaction of culture and aging, a line of work that pits the influence of life experiences and plasticity against neurobiological aging.  We’ve identified cultural differences in the use of categories to organize memory for older, but not younger, adults.  Our current work continues to address these themes, exploring the specificity of memory processes for cognitive and social domains, using both behavioral and neuroimaging methods.  Although cultures may differ across these domains in the specificity of the details encoded into memory, aging is predicted to reduce the specificity of memory processes, thus eliminating cross-cultural differences.”

Prof. Dr. DR. h.c Geoffrey Hartman

["Sterling Professor emeritus of English and Comparative Literature" at Yale University]

Geoffrey Hartman, geboren 1929, ist emeritierter Sterling-Professor für Englische und Vergleichende Literaturwissenschaft an der Yale University sowie Mitbegründer und Leiter des Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies.

Hartman is also one of the leading members of the deconstructionist school of criticism. One of his works that explicitly display his position as a deconstructionist is "The Interpreter's Freud”,  which talks of the human cognition as being defined by many variants and has no particular scientifically proven definition. This piece was originally presented as the 1984 Freud Lecture at Yale.

Forschungsprojekt/Forschungsinteressen:

Paul F. Lazarsfeld and Modern Social Research
What do marketing, social welfare, foreign intelligence, mass media, electoral politics, and the philosophy of social science have in common? Incongruous as these items may seem, each was shaped by the work of Austrian émigré social-psychologist, mathematician, and central figure of my dissertation project, Paul F. Lazarsfeld (1901-1976). Today, Lazarsfeld is known primarily for his pioneering work in mass communications research and his innovations in the organization of empirical social science research and training. My research reconstructs the European and American contexts in which he developed his empirical social science. This includes intellectual traditions in Germany, Austria, and America; his immediate political, cultural, and social contexts in Vienna and the U.S.; and the “intellectual migration”. Lazarsfeld's applied social science also reshaped its context and contributed to broad structural transformations in governance, economy, and mass culture on both sides of the Atlantic: although his science developed within specific contexts, once the basic premises and empirical techniques were available, his methods could be widely applied in government and industry. Thus, Lazarsfeld participated in the general mid-century boom of social science which created a new class of white-collar technocrats, managers, and experts. Moreover, he successfully exported his science and its institutional framework to Cold War Europe through international organizations and philanthropies. A cardinal aim of the dissertation is to bring Lazarsfeld, who has previously been studied mainly within the development of his specialized discipline, into the broader intellectual and social histories of the “short” twentieth century.

Eric Hounshell is a doctoral student in the Department of History at the University of California, Los Angeles. He earned a bachelor’s degree in history, with additional coursework in philosophy and Chinese, at the University of California, Berkeley from 2002 to 2006.

Joseph KleTT

[Doctoral candidate and junior fellow in the Center for Cultural Sociology at Yale University, Homepage]

E-Mail: joseph.klett@yale.edu

Zur Person:

  • Joseph Klett is a doctoral candidate and junior fellow in the Center for Cultural Sociology at Yale University. His research interests include science & technology studies, design and new media, sound studies, environmental sociology, social movements, and human-animal relations.
    Joseph’s dissertation is titled ‘The Social Life of Noise: perception, technology, and culture.’ This work concerns the meaning of “noise” as a sonic concept in audio engineering and American music education. Through ethnographic studies, Joseph approaches sound as meaningful material produced by technologies of perception and epistemology.  Where the meaning of sound emerges through a dialectic of sounding objects and listening subjects, there is great variation between situated experiences of sound and ways of understanding sound. This work engages theories of knowledge, practice, and cognition to address issues of meaning and meaning-making, expertise, space, aesthetics and communication, and objectivity.
    Additionally, Joseph is co-authoring papers on several collaborative research projects.  These include a theoretical evaluation of practices of coercion in different liberal pedagogies, a professions view to the institution of the ‘art teacher’, and a multi-species ethnography of a human-chimpanzee painting collaboration.
    Joseph’s previous research projects have included a study on meaning-making in the genre of American ‘Noise Music’, a study of the effects of digitized music consumption on reception, and the coding of non-human animals in the discourse of animal rights.

DR. DOROTHY KWEK
[Department of Sociology, Johns Hopkins University]

E-Mail: dkwek1@jhu.edu

Forschungsinteressen:

  • Brief project description: Against a long tradition that portrays ‘the masses’ as an uncontrollable and irrational force, recent narratives of ‘multitude’ highlight its spontaneous ‘swarm intelligence.’ Both views possess a certain degree of truth, and I argue that the terms ‘mass’ and ‘multitude’ refract two aspects of a Janus-faced phenomenon. The question then is when the multitudes will turn destructive, or on the contrary, when the masses will suddenly rise above common hatreds to produce a new social reality? The research builds upon ideas from two very different traditions of thought. It undertakes a close reading of the Enlightenment philosophy of Benedict Spinoza (1632-1677), and the aphorisms, prose and poetry of two ancient Chinese texts in the Daoist cannon, Daodejing and Zhuangzi. This interdisciplinary and transcultural project shows how the refiguring of power as receptivity sheds new light on the myriad mechanisms for the social and political integration of otherwise fragmented multitudes. It will use this as an interpretive lens to examine exemplary instance of how power-as-receptivity works as a ‘logic of sense’ that percolates through Daoist folklore and ritual, enabling diaspora Chinese in Asia to form emergent ‘publics’ capable of collective action.

Dauer des Aufenthaltes in Konstanz:

  • Oktober 2012 - Januar 2013

VortrÄge/Seminare/Workshops/Konferenzen:

  • Engaging in research at the Universitaet Konstanz. This study of the receptive powers of the multitude provides a bottom-up analysis of how the “Cultural Foundations of Social Integration” are constituted, not through sovereign outcomes, policy directives or bureaucratic efficacy, but by the mobile multitudes, i.e., from the ‘bottom up.’ It identifies and elaborates on a key insight of the research of the Cluster of Excellence, namely, that the bases for social integration are not stable entities or fixed identities, but rather contingent constellations of bodily, imaginary, passional, inter-agencies. The cross-cultural analysis and interdisciplinary research that characterize Universitaet Konstanz make it the ideal site for my attempt to rethink the cannon, to deparochialize the study of texts and other objects of analysis in the social sciences and humanities, and to adequately account for the entanglements and mutual dependencies that have always characterized the flows of people, things and ideas. In the Wintersemester Dorothy Kwek will be teaching a Masters level course, "Self and Society in Asia," in the Department of Sociology, and will present part of the project at Prof. Dr. Aleida Assmann's research colloquium.

Forschungsinteressen:

  • Marcus Lampert joined the Department in 2009, having spent a year in Berlin on a Fulbright fellowship. He is interested in how literature offers a unique contribution to our understanding of both language and human consciousness. His interest in language began while he was an undergraduate at Princeton University, at which time he was introduced both to Walter Benjamin’s thoughts on the relationship between language and knowledge and Niklas Luhmann’s historical sociological investigations of the relationship between language and society. Since coming to Chicago, Marcus has developed a keen interest in questions concerning the human mind and subjectivity, an interest inspired by his study of Goethe, Kant, Fichte, Friedrich Schlegel, and Hegel. He plans to write a dissertation on language and thought in the age of Fichte.

Prof. Dr. Niklaus Largier

[Berkeley, University of California,  Department of German, Homepage

 

E-Mail: nlargier[at]berkeley.edu


Zur Person/Forschungsinteressen:

Niklaus Largier is currently chair of the German department. He is affiliated with UC Berkeley's Program in Medieval Studies and the Designated Emphasis in Critical Theory. After studying German Literature, Philosophy, and Russian in Zurich and Paris, Professor Largier received his Ph.D. from the University of Zurich in 1989. His research deals with the history of medieval and early modern German literature, especially questions of the relations among literature, philosophy, theology, and other fields of knowledge. His most recent books explore the relation between bodily ascetic practices (in particular flagellation), eroticism, and the literary imagination (Lob der Peitsche: Eine Kulturgeschichte der Erregung. Beck, Munich, 2001; American translation: In Praise of the Whip: A Cultural History of Arousal. ZONE Books, 2007), and the fascination of decadent literature with such religious practices (Die Kunst des Begehrens: Dekadenz, Sinnlichkeit und Askese. Beck, Munich, 2007). Current projects: the history of fantasy and the emotions from the Middle Ages to the Baroque era; the history of the senses, of sense experience, and of the stimulation of the senses-especially taste and touch-in medieval, early modern, and modern cultures. Niklaus Largier is an internationally recognized expert on mystical traditions in German literature and thought, in particular Meister Eckhart and his influence from the Middle Ages to postmodern discourses. His books include a study on time and temporality in late medieval philosophy and literature (1989), a bibliography of literature on Meister Eckhart (1989), a translation and commentary of a medieval treatise on spiritual poverty (1989), a two-volume edition of Meister Eckhart's works with extensive commentaries in the Deutscher Klassiker Verlag (1993), and a study of the significance of exemplum and exemplarity in medieval literature, philosophy, and historiography (1997). Largier has published essays on Eckhart, Tauler, Seuse, Mechthild of Magdburg, Hadewijch, Rudolf of Biberach, Czepko, and others. More recently, a series of articles deals with the interaction of images and texts in medieval manuscripts, questions of visual culture, and the significance of exemplarity in various discursive contexts. He has coedited two collections of essays on spirituality and literature (1995 and 1999), and an important medieval collection of vernacular sermons (1998). Largier is a member of the editorial board of the journal Representations, and of the book series New Trends in Medieval Philology (DeGruyter, Berlin) and Deutsche Literatur von den Anfängen bis 1700 (Lang, Bern et al.). Niklaus Largier is the recipient of a Swiss National Research Foundation Grant (1993/96), of a Fellowship in residence at the Getty Center for the History of Art and the Humanities (1992/93), and of a Guggenheim Fellowship (2004). He joined the Berkeley faculty in 2000. From 2001 until 2004 he was the director of UC Berkeley's Program in Medieval Studies, and from 2003 until 2006 he was the director of the Program in Religious Studies. Visiting Professor at Harvard University in 2006.

VortrÄge/Seminare/Workshops/Konferenzen:

  • Blockseminar (HS/OS) “Mystik und Moderne”
    Sogenannt ‘mystische’ Formen des Denkens und der Erfahrung haben in der Geschichte der modernen Philosophie und Literatur, aber etwa auch in der frühen Filmtheorie und in der Kunst eine wichtige Rolle gespielt. Hegel und Lukàcs, Béla Balázs und Robert Musil, Paul Celan, Ingeborg Bachman und Martin Heidegger, Georges Bataille, Maurice Blanchot und Jacques Derrida, John Cage und Dan Flavin – sie alle haben Texte mittelalterlicher Mystiker gelesen, Elemente ihres Denkens übernommen und sich mit diesen produktiv auseinandergesetzt.
    In einer ersten Phase des Seminars werden wir eine Reihe exemplarischer Texte lesen (Meister Eckhart, Mechthild von Magdeburg, Hadewijch von Antwerpen, Angelus Silesius), in einer zweiten Phase die Formen besprechen, in denen diese Texte im 20. Jahrhundert eine Nachwirkung entfalten. Dabei steht nicht die Rezeptionsgeschichte im Vordergrund. Es wird vielmehr darum gehen zu rekonstruieren, wie bestimmte Topoi und Denkbilder aus diesen Texttraditionen moderne Fragestellungen im Bereichen des Verständnisses von Subjektivität, Affekt, und von literarischen und künstlerischen Darstellungsfragen bestimmen.
    Es wird ein Reader bereitgestellt. Studierende, die an bestimmten Aspekten des Themas interessiert sind, sollten sich im Vorfeld bei mir melden, damit diese in den Plan des Seminars eingearbeitet werden können (nlargier@berkeley.edu).

PROF. DR. Nino Luraghi

Click here to download the CV

Zur Person/Forschungsinteressen:

  • Nino Luraghi is a historian of ancient Greece. Trained in Italy and Germany, he has held academic appointments at Harvard University and the University of Toronto. He teaches at Princeton since 2008. His interests include tyranny and monarchy in Greece from the archaic age to the Roman conquest, ancient and modern slavery, ethnic identity and tradition, and Greek and Roman historiography. His 1994 book Tirannidi arcaiche in Sicilia e Magna Grecia makes a case for integrating the political history of the Greek colonies of Sicily and Southern Italy into the mainstream of Greek history. In various articles, including his contributions to the volume The Historian’s Craft in the Age of Herodotus he edited (Oxford 2001, paperback edition 2005), he has explored the relationship of early Greek historiography to the genres of oral tradition, with a focus on folktale. His 2008 book The Ancient Messenians: Constructions of Ethnicity and Memory takes a long-term perspective to the development of notions of ethnic identity in a region of the ancient Peloponnese, making extensive use of insights and methods from anthropology and sociology. In another group of articles, one of which appeared in the volume Helots and their Masters, which he co-edited with S. Alcock, he has advanced a reinterpretation of the regime of dependence of the slaves of the Spartans, known as Helots.

Teaching Interests

  • Luraghi teaches courses on ancient historians, especially Herodotus and Thucydides, in the original, and introductory and advanced courses in Greek history, on topics including tyranny, the history and archaeology of the Greek cities in Sicily, Sparta, Greek epigraphy etc. He welcomes applications from prospective graduate students interested in working on any aspect of Greek history and historiography

E-Mail: cl537@cam.ac.uk

Forschungsinteressen:

  • “My research focuses on the neglected transregional socio-ecological aspects of pneumonic plague in Inner Asia. From Tibet through Qinghai, Mongolia and Manchuria, to the South Siberian steppes of Transbaikalia, societies as diverse as Buryat herders, Mongol hunters and Tibetan nomads share their environment with the natural reservoir of Yersinia pestis: marmots. These large rodents, which populate the area in vast numbers, have been established as the original source of the great Manchurian plague outbreaks of 1910-1911 and 1920-21 and are widely suspected as the main, if not sole, original source of the disease on the planet. Yet, more than simply living alongside marmots, native societies across Inner Asia have for centuries depended on them for fur, meat and fat, engaging in seasonal hunting and trapping activities from March to November (with local variations according to altitude and latitude), when the particular mammals do not hibernate. It is these activities, bringing humans and marmots in intensive direct contact, that have been considered by epidemiologists as the most crucial factor in the spread and containment of plague in the area. All four major plague outbreaks in the last 100 years (1910-11, 1920-21, 1926, 2009) have been attributed to marmot-hunting malpractices. However, whilst early 20th century outbreaks were blamed on migrant workers failing to employ skilled and hygienic native hunting methods, the recent outbreak in Qinghai has paradoxically been attributed to the natives themselves.“

Organisiert von Prof. Dr.Roy Dilley (St. Andrews University), Prof. Dr. Thomas Kirsch (Konstanz).Zum Programm: http://www.exc16.de/cms/uploads/media/Nichtwissen-Workshops-2012_01.pdf Regime des Wissens sind zugleich Regime der Ignoranz: Indem sie zulässige und gültige Formen und Gegenstände des Wissens anweisen, bestimmen sie auch, was nicht gewusst werden kann oder soll. Nichtwissen steht insofern nicht im Gegensatz zu Wissen, sondern verhält sich dazu komplementär. Die Vorstellung, im Zuge der Wissenserzeugung werde fortschreitend ein dunkler Kontinent des Nichtwissens kolonisiert, führt demnach in die Irre. Wissen und Ignoranz bedingen sich wechselseitig in einem sozialen und politischen Raum partieller und wechselhafter Beziehungen. Im Lichte dieser „Ökologie des Nichtwissens“ sind die sozialen Praktiken der Produktion und Reproduktion von Nichtwissen zu untersuchen, die Praktiken der ethnographischen Beschreibung und ethnologischen Analyse einschließen, denn auch die akademische Wissensproduktion wirft einen Schatten der Ignoranz.

Vorhaben in Konstanz: “My dissertation topic is dietetics and reading in the eighteenth century. During the reading revolution of the eighteenth century, instructional texts on reading (Lesepropädeutiken) appeared en masse. These texts controlled everything from whether to read aloud or silently, to the speed of reading, times of reading, ways of note taking and where to read. As texts that were concerned with a regimen of reading, one can understand them as a dietetics of reading; and this understanding is justified by the fact that they were printed often as part of larger dietetics systems. I plan to use a large array of these instructional texts to elucidate the varied experience of reading in the eighteenth century. I hope to show that a historical understanding of reading can produce enlightening interpretations of eighteenth-century literature and is an essential component of understanding the appearance of modern literature in the eighteenth century.
The events and meetings of the interdisciplinary cluster in Konstanz, “Das Reale in der Kultur der Moderne,” will provide an excellent frame for me to develop this project. One of the central questions of the cluster is the relation between disciplines that argue that they can make truth claims about objects of reality and disciplines that consider such claims and reality itself to be determined by cultural constructs. With regard to dietetics of reading, my dissertation will critically analyze fields of knowledge such as eighteenth-century medicine that believed objects that were socially constructed such as novels could have real health effects on their readers (including everything from making people blind to deforming the fetus of pregnant readers and causing melancholy, exhaustion, and even death,). I will be able to effectively explore this relation between cultural construct and reality in the colloquium “Fiktion und Realität in der Kultur der Moderne.” Specifically my project attempts to describe not only how fictional literary texts were viewed to have reality effects on everything from bodies to societies to souls, but also how ‘fictional’ techniques such as narrative and metaphor were used to understand and experience these ‘real’ effects and to then create norms and techniques that helped determine the experience of reading in the eighteenth century.
In addition to attending the meetings and events associated with the seminar “Fiktion und Realität in der Kultur der Moderne,” I would like to attend other events associated with the cluster “Das Reale in der Kultur der Moderne,” and participate in classes in the German literature and media studies departments. During the months in Konstanz I will also use the fact that I’m in Germany as an opportunity to visit various archives that house volumes I require to begin work on my dissertation.

Nichtwissen steht insofern nicht im Gegensatz zu Wissen, sondern verhält sich dazu komplementär. Die Vorstellung, im Zuge der Wissenserzeugung werde fortschreitend ein dunkler Kontinent des Nichtwissens kolonisiert, führt demnach in die Irre. Wissen und Ignoranz bedingen sich wechselseitig in einem sozialen und politischen Raum partieller und wechselhafter Beziehungen. Im Lichte dieser „Ökologie des Nichtwissens“ sind die sozialen Praktiken der Produktion und Reproduktion von Nichtwissen zu untersuchen, die Praktiken der ethnographischen Beschreibung und ethnologischen Analyse einschließen, denn auch die akademische Wissensproduktion wirft einen Schatten der Ignoranz.

Forschungsvorhaben:

  • Säkularisierung ist eines der wirkungsvollsten master narratives im Prozess der kulturellen und politischen Selbsterfindung Europas. Die ‚säkularen’ Werte – wie etwa ‚Glaube’ im Sinne von privat-individueller Überzeugung, der von politischen Zusammenhängen isoliert werden könne – , sind, so die Kritik, letztlich nicht von religiösen Inhalten zu trennen: „secularism is Christianity“ (Anidjar).
    Historischen Zusammenhänge, die im Zentrum der deutschen Diskussion Mitte des letzten Jahrhunderts standen, sowohl mit der neueren, vor allem politisch und anthropologisch geführte Auseinandersetzung in Verbindung zu bringen als auch unter der Perspektive der neuen theoretischen Überlegungen neu zu beleuchten.

  • Blockseminar: Säkularisierung: zur Geschichte und Aktualität der Debatte
    Prof. Dr. Christiane Frey (Princeton University),  Dr. Uwe Hebekus  (UniversitÄt Konstanz), Prof. Dr. David Martyn  (Macalester College)

    Spätestens seit dem Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts dient der Begriff der Säkularisierung als master trope zur normativen Selbstbeschreibung des (europäischen) Westens. Konstruiert wird die eigene Kultur als eine solche, in der Religion allenfalls noch der Status einer Privatangelegenheit zukommen darf, aus dem öffentlichen bzw. politischen Sektor jedoch tunlichst herauszuhalten ist. Gesetzt ist damit nahezu zwangsläufig das Negativbild und die Kontrastfolie solcher Gesellschaften, die sich nach westlicher Einschätzung religiös legitimiert sehen wollen und die damit à la limite fundamentalistisch seien. Gegenwärtig zeugt im Westen etwa die Debatte um den Islam als politische Religion von der noch immer ungebrochenen normativen Virulenz und polemischen Ausrichtung des Säkuarisierungsbegriffs. Zugleich aber mehren sich aktuell nicht-westliche und außereuropäische Stimmen, welche die kategoriale Basis der westlichen Säkularisierungsagenda dekonstruieren wollen, indem sie argumentieren, diese speise sich selber aus einer bestimmten Ausprägung von Religion, nämlich dem Protestantismus. Das Seminar, das sich v.a. an theoretisch und theoriegeschichtlich interessierte Studierende der Fächer/Studiengänge Geschichtswissenschaft, Kulturelle Grundlagen Europas und Neuere Deutsche Literatur richtet, will beidem nachgehen: der Geschichte ebenso wie der Aktualität der Säkularisierungsdebatte. Das zeitliche Spektrum der zu diskutierenden Autoren reicht dabei vom frühen 19. Jahrhundert (z.B. Hegel) bis in die unmittelbare Gegenwart (z.B. Gil Anidjar).
    Das Kompaktseminar ist eine Kooperationsveranstaltung des Macalester College/USA, der Princeton University/USA und der Universität Konstanz, denen die drei DozentInnen angehören. Es findet auf Deutsch statt. Die Teilnehmerzahl soll auf max. 30 beschränkt werden Ein Reader mit den Seminartexten steht ab dem 15. Juni zur Verfügung. Die Seminartermine sind: Di 24. Juli, Do 26 Juli, Di 31. Juli, Do 2. August (jeweils von 10-12 Uhr und von 14-18 Uhr). Anmeldung zum Seminar nach dem Vorbesprechungstermin (s.o.) und bis spätestens zum 31.

  • Juni 2011 Workshop: The Rhetoric of Secularization

Among the dominant narratives Europe has used to describe its own modernity – long unquestioned – is „secularization“ as a sign of historical progress and a key condition of universal tolerance. More recently, the concept of the „secular“ has come under attack as a concept that hides its own religious – and particularist – roots („secularism is Christianity“, Gil Anidjar). In our workshop that we plan to offer in preparation of the colloquium The Rhetoric of Secularization, we will approach this debate obliquely by examining the history and pre-history of secularization narratives. This includes: a) 18th-century theories of history (Herder, Lessing, Schiller, Mendelssohn) as a kind of secularization narrative avant la lettre; b) the advent of an explicit theory of Verweltlichung or secularization in Hegel and its further development in Feuerbach and Marx; and c) the debate on secularization that took place in Germany, long before the current critique of the concept, between Hans Blumenberg – the first great critic of the secularization narrative – and Karl Löwith and Carl Schmitt. Finally, we will draw on this historical analysis to re-examine some of the recent literature on the secular by authors such as Charles Taylor, Talal Asad, Gil Anidjar.

Research Abstract:

David Pan received his Ph.D. in 1995 from Columbia University and has since taught at Washington University (St. Louis), Stanford University, and Penn State University before coming to UC Irvine in 2006. He also worked for two years as a management consultant at McKinsey and Company in Los Angeles and has been an editorial associate and is currently the book review editor at Telos.
His first book, Primitive Renaissance: Rethinking German Expressionism (University of Nebraska Press, 2001), describes the ways in which German expressionist writers and artists were inspired by art forms from so-called “primitive” cultures in Africa, the South Seas, and the Americas. This book establishes the outlines of a primitivist aesthetic that understands the modernist European return to myth and the primitive neither as a regression nor a purely imperialist gesture, but rather as part of broader trends in which artists and writers such as Friedrich Nietzsche, Wassily Kandinsky, and Carl Einstein were driven by a sense that social structures based on rational discourse and scientific analysis might be unable to replace adequately the myths and rituals of traditional culture.
Since completing this book, his research has continued to focus on issues of aesthetics and tradition. He has just finished a book project about sacrifice as a trope in German literature, entitled Economies of Sacrifice: Violence and Culture in Modern Germany.
This manuscript argues that while a model of sacrifice lies at the foundation of every culture and serves to develop a human relationship to violence, every particular model of sacrifice functions differently and marks the society of which it is a part. Within this framework, the book characterizes modern German literary culture in terms of a basic opposition between 1) a traditionalist insistence on the subordination of the individual to community ideals through sacrifice, exemplified in Heinrich von Kleist and Franz Kafka, and 2) an Enlightenment defense of the individual, evident in Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Wilhelm von Humboldt and Ernst Jünger, leading to a mobilization of violence for the sake of the individual.
His next project moves back toward the 18th century in order to develop a theoretical framework that can help explain the functioning of tradition in the modern world. While Enlightenment thinkers promoted reason against tradition as the best authority for guiding human understanding and attempted to establish a universal culture based on rational argument and philosophical reflection, anti-Enlightenment thought in Germany rejected this stance and turned to religious frameworks and traditions as the foundation of human society. Future work in this project will consider anti-Enlightenment thought in Germany, concentrating on the work of Johann Gottfried Herder, Friedrich Jacobi, and Johann Georg Hamann, but also analyzing later developers of this tradition such as Arnold Gehlen and Carl Schmitt, in order to investigate its particular understanding of the role of traditions in determining the structure of human consciousness.
Recent courses he has taught include: Enlightenment and Anti-Enlightenment in 18th Century German Culture, Sacrifice in Modern German Literature, The German Realist Novel, Carl Schmitt and the Frankfurt School, The Myth of Faust and the Devil’s Pact, The Origin of Language, and Understanding Political Violence.

Forschungsinteressen:

Dissertation: Triadic Figurations within Epic Narratives of Nationality and Citizenship in 18th-century Literature

Anhand der deutschen Literatur des achtzehnten Jahrhunderts beurteilt die Dissertation das Vermächtnis der bürgerlich-humanistischen Ideologie als ein politisches und zugleich poetologisches Projekt neu.
Sie geht davon aus, dass die Wiederbelebung des Epos Diskussionen in poetischen und ästhetischen Diskursen erzeugte, die unentwirrbar mit Fragen nach Nation und Staatszugehörigkeit verknüpft waren. Denn auch innerhalb des poetologischen Diskurses artikulierten die Aufrufe zum Schreiben eines deutschsprachigen Nationalepos den Wunsch nach einer
deutschen Identität. Die damit verbundenen Diskussionen waren jedoch nicht nur chauvinistische Behauptungen einer solchen nationalen Identität, sondern stets Verhandlungen der Spannung zwischen humanistischen Ansprüchen auf Universalität und partikularistischen Versuchen, spezifisch deutsche Mythen eines gemeinsamen Ursprungs zu erzählen. Indem die Dissertation den Konturen der paradoxen Figurationen einer imaginären Zugerhörigkeit nachspürt, zeigt sie den intern umstrittenen Status von Begriffen wie “Humanität”, “Nation”, “Universalität,” “Republik”, “Weltbürgertum”, und “Bürgerrecht”.
Dabei wird das politische Potenzial der Figuration solcher Begriffe in den rhetorischen und narrativen Strukturen bedeutender Epen von Klopstock, Goethe, Wieland und später Brentano betont.

  • 02.10.2008 – 05.10.2008 Anlass: Annual conference of the German Studies Association of North America, held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in St. Paul Minnesota, October 2 – 5, 2008. Dr. Payne organized a panel with the title, “Authority, Family, and Humanity: The Poetics of Genre in the Eighteenth Century” for the annual conference of the German Studies Association of North America, held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in St. Paul Minnesota, October 2 – 5, 2008. Among the panelists were Professor Dr. Ethel Matala de Mazza (EXC 16, Konstanz), Assistant Professor Dr. Michael Taylor (University of Calgary), and Joel Lande (doctoral student, University of Chicago). In addition to organizing the panel, he provided the commentary on the papers. Focusing on the period from Gottsched’s critical poetics through Lessing and into the Romantic, each paper addressed the eighteenth-century preoccupation with “Gattung” as both an anthropological and poetic category. Given certain anthropological presuppositions, the problem of poetics becomes a matter of finding appropriate forms of representation to create desired mental or emotional states within and among human beings. Most often, the concern is with creating “pure” forms of representation (for, example in theatrical illusion) capable of insuring the moral “purity” of humans. The three papers explored connections between genre and moral didacticism through analyses of particular texts. Joel Lande’s paper analyzed tragedies by Gottsched and J.E. Schlegel, in which political authority was represented through a triangular relation between a prince, the stage as site of theatrical illusion, and the “Volk” as both character within the tragedy and audience. Ethel Matala’s paper looked at the figure of “maternal imagination” in Lessing’s poetics and his contemporary medical discourse to show how attempts to establish laws of genre lead to a critique of this project within later prose fiction. Finally, Michael Taylor’s paper considered the staging of Nathan der Weise in Berlin immediately at the end of the second world war as an escapist attempt to render the content into a “fairy tale,” but also as a production drawing on Lessing’s own theatrical poetics which attempt to “purify” love as a marriage bond, but in the process banish the mother from the dramatic plot. In his commentary, Dr. Payne picked up on the function, or erasure, of female figures in the examples from the papers, and asked what role these figures and their being granting direct speech or not plays in these texts and within the laws of genre. Although the panel was scheduled for 8.30 on the first day of the conference, a lively discussion among panelists and audience followed the presentations.

Dr. Elisa Primavera-LÉVY
[Postdoc im Graduiertenkolleg "Das Reale in der Kultur der Moderne", Freie Autorin, New York/Berlin]

Forschungsprojekt:
Vom Unwert der Schmerzen. Zum Umgang mit dem Schmerz als Metapher des Realen nach 1945
Das Sprechen über den Schmerz, das noch wenige Jahre zuvor eine herausragende Rolle im kulturkritischen Diskurs einnahm, ändert sich nach 1945 radikal. Heroische Ethiken sowie traumatophile Ästhetiken werden womöglich angesichts der tatsächlichen Überwältigung durch historische Erfahrung zunehmend zurückgewiesen. Während ihres Aufenthalts am IFK will Elisa Primavera-Lévy beschreiben, in welche Richtung sich die immanent-vitalistischen Diskurse vom Lebenswert des Schmerzes entwickeln, die gegen Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts im deutschen Imaginären, z.B. als Bildungsnarrativ eine so wichtige Rolle einnahmen. Die metaphorologischen Umwälzungen, die diesen Bewertungsprozessen zugrunde liegen, samt ihren Auswirkungen auf Ideologeme der Bildung und Perfektionierbarkeit im Übergang der deutschen Nachkriegszeit bis zur Gegenwart sollen dabei nachvollzogen werden. Ziel ist es, die Bewegungen und Richtungswechsel der Metapher Schmerz als das einbrechende, die Wahrheit anzeigende „Reale“ zum sich verschließenden und irreführenden „Realen“ im Wechselspiel mit medizinischen und psychologischen Diskursen darzustellen.


CV und Publikationen:

Elisa Primavera-Lévy studierte Allgemeine und Vergleichende Literaturwissenschaften sowie Kulturwissenschaft in Berlin und Kopenhagen. 2009 promovierte sie an der University of Chicago in Germanistik über das Zusammenspiel von physiologischen, philosophischen und literarischen Schmerzdiskursen von Nietzsche bis Jünger. Sie lebt als freie Autorin in New York und Berlin und arbeitet zurzeit an einer Einführung in das Werk Ernst Jüngers.

The Human Motor, an investigation of the metaphor of work and energy that provided modern thinkers with a new scientific and cultural framework to understand the human body, appeared in 1991 and has since been translated into several languages. His current research is on the culture of Nazi Germany and on post-World War II exchanges between European and American intellectuals
