Book Description: While globalization is often associated with economic and social progress, it has also brought new forms of terrorism, permanent states of emergency, demographic displacement, climate change, and other "natural" disasters. Given these contemporary concerns, one might also view the current time as an age of traumatism. Yet what—or how—does the traumatic event mean in an age of global catastrophe? This volume explores trauma theory in an age of globalization by means of the practice of comparative literature. The essays and interviews in this volume ask how literary studies and the literary anticipate, imagine, or theorize the current global climate, especially in an age when the links between violence, amorphous traumatic events, and economic concerns are felt increasingly in everyday experience. Trauma and Literature in an Age of Globalization turns a literary perspective upon the most urgent issues of globalization—problems of borders, language, inequality, and institutionalized violence—and considers from a variety of perspectives how such events impact our lived experience and its representation in language and literature.

Book Description: Im Zentrum der Enzyklopädie steht die Frage, ob und inwieweit Europa im Zeitalter der Globalität durch Kontinuität und Wandel Referenzrahmen für Begriffsbildungen, Symbolisierungen und Sinndeutungen in den Geistes- und Kulturwissenschaften bleibt. Angesichts weltweiter Diskurse zur Globalität wird exemplarisch nach den Konsequenzen des global turn für den seit der Aufklärung erhobenen Anspruch Europas auf geistes- und kulturwissenschaftliche Deutungshoheit gefragt. Bezogen auf die geistes- und kulturwissenschaftliche Perspektive lautet die Kernfrage der Enzyklopädie: Wie verändert Globalität Europa und wie verändert Europa die Globalität? Grundsätzlich und am Beispiel wichtiger Sachverhalte und Begriffe aus den Lebenssphären des Menschen untersuchen mehr als einhundert Professoren der Rheinischen Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn, wie der global turn die geistes- und kulturwissenschaftliche Begriffsbildung prägt. Die Bonner Enzyklopädie der Globalität bietet weitreichende Denkanstöße zu der Frage, ob und auf welche Weise europäische Deutungsmuster und Begriffsbestimmungen durch Kontinuität und Wandel im Zeichen der Globalität universell bedeutsam bleiben. ​

Book Description: Immigrant Fictions is a groundbreaking collection that brings together studies of world literature, book history, narrative theory, and the contemporary novel to challenge methods of critical reading based on national models of literary culture. Contributors suggest that contemporary novels by immigrant writers need to be read across several geographies of production, circulation, and translation. Analyzing work by David Peace, George Lamming, Caryl Phillips, Iva Pekarkova, Yan Geling, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, Anchee Min, and Monica Ali, these essays take up a range of critical topics, including the transnational book and the migrant writer, the comparative reception history of postcolonial fiction, transnational criticism and Asian-American literature in the U. S., mobility and feminism in translation, linguistic mediation and immigrating fictions, migration and the politics of narrative form.
