Book excerpt: Dieser Band versammelt Beiträge zum weiten Gebiet der narrativen Ethik mit einem Schwerpunkt auf erzählender Literatur und Prozessen der Selbsterzählung. Am Anfang stehen Beiträge zum Stand der Forschung zur narrativen Ethik aus theologischer Perspektive und zur Frage nach dem theologischen Zugriff auf literarische Texte sowie der Situierung narrativer Ethik im interkulturellen Kontext. Ein zweiter Teil legt den Fokus auf Aushandlungen von Identität in autobiographischen Texten. Exemplarisch werden Quellen aus der Antike, der Zeit um 1800 und dem 20. Jahrhundert ausgewertet. Abschließend widmen sich Beiträge der Bedeutung von Selbsterzählung im Zusammenhang von seelischem Leiden und Suchtkrankheit. [The Narrated Self. Narrative Ethics from the Perspectives of Theology and Literary Studies] The contributions to this collection belong to the vast field of narrative ethics, with a focus on narrative literature and the processes of self-narration. The first section looks at the current scholarly field of narrative ethics in theology and at theological approaches to literary texts. The focus of the second section of the collection is on the negotiations of identity in autobiographical texts. There is a particular emphasis on exemplary sources from antiquity and from the time of the 19th and 20th centuries. The last two chapters of the collection inquire into the meaning of self-narration in the realm of mental suffering and addictive illness.

Download or read book Cosmopolitanism and Translation written by Esperanca Bielsa and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2016-05-20 with total page 198 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Social theories of the new cosmopolitanism have called attention to the central importance of translation, in areas such as global democracy, human rights and social movements, but translation studies has not engaged systematically with theories of cosmopolitanism. In Cosmopolitanism and Translation, Esperança Bielsa does just that by focussing on the lived experience of the cosmopolitan stranger, whether a traveller, migrant, refugee or homecomer. With reference to world literature, social theory and foreign news, she argues that this key figure of modernity has a central relevance in the cosmopolitanism debate. In nine chapters organised into four thematic sections, this book examines: theories and insights on "new cosmopolitanism" methodological cosmopolitanism translation as the experience of the foreign the notion of cosmopolitanism as openness to others living in translation and the question of the stranger. With detailed case studies centred on Bolaño, Adorno and Terzani and their work, Cosmopolitanism and Translation places translation at the heart of cosmopolitan theory and makes an essential contribution for students and researchers of both translation studies and social theory.

Download or read book Searching for Japan written by Michele Monserrati and published by Transnational Italian Cultures. This book was released on 2020-03-27 with total page 264 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book pursues the specific case of Italian travel narratives in the Far East, through a focus on the experience of Japan in works by writers who visited the Land of the Rising Sun beginning in the Meiji period (1868-1912) and during the concomitant opening of Japan's relations with the West. Drawing from the fields of Postcolonial and Transnational Studies, analysis of these texts explores one central question: what does it mean to imagine Japanese culture as contributing to Italian culture? Each author shares in common an attempt to disrupt ideas about dichotomies and unbalanced power relationships between East and West. Proposing the notion of 'relational Orientalism, ' this book suggests that Italian travelogues to Japan, in many cases, pursued the goal of building imaginary transnational communities, predicated on commonalities and integration, by claiming what they perceived as 'Oriental' as their own. In contrast with a long history of Western representations of Japan as inferior and irrational, Searching for Japan identifies a positive overarching attitude toward the Far East country in modern Italian culture. Expanding the horizon of Italian transnational networks, normally situated within the Southern European region, this book reinstates the existence of an alternative Euro-Asian axis, operating across Italian history.

Download or read book Writing travel, writing life written by Pia Sójka and published by Universitätsverlag Potsdam. This book was released on 2023-01-10 with total page 324 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The book compares the texts of three Swiss authors: Ella Maillart, Annemarie Schwarzenbach and Nicolas Bouvier. The focus is on their trip from Genève to Kabul that Ella Maillart and Annemarie Schwarzenbach made together in 1939/1940 and Nicolas Bouvier 1953/1954 with the artist Thierry Vernet. The comparison shows the strong connection between the journey and life and between ars vivendi and travel literature. This book also gives an overview of and organises the numerous terms, genres, and categories that already exist to describe various travel texts and proposes the new term travelling narration. The travelling narration looks at the text from a narratological perspective that distinguishes the author, narrator, and protagonist within the narration. In the examination, ten motifs could be found to characterise the travelling narration: Culture, Crossing Borders, Freedom, Time and Space, the Aesthetics of Landscapes, Writing and Reading, the Self and/as the Other, Home, Religion and Spirituality as well as the Journey. The importance of each individual motif does not only apply in the 1930s or 1950s but also transmits important findings for living together today and in the future.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Vi siete mai chiesti se quanto appreso dai libri di storia corrisponde al vero? Non parlo di scetticismo ma di semplice analisi. I personaggi di questo racconto, si vedranno costretti a scendere dal podio delle loro convinzioni per arrendersi di fronte all'evidenza di nuove verita. La storiografa Marika Corsi, giovane, bella e irruente, si lancera in una spasmodica ricerca di prove tangibili che avvalorino la morte di un dittatore. La madre Laura, oppressa dalla paura di perdere Giorgio, suo marito e padre di Marika, in una altrettanto incessante ricerca di un amore appartenuto ad un recente passato. La prima si ritrovera proiettata in una dimensione carica di ostilita e di violenza, la seconda scoprira quelle profondita che solo un amore vero, sincero, immenso, puo raggiungere. Entrambe si scontreranno con le falsita delle loro certezze. Amore e odio. Due facce della stessa gelida moneta, come un altro freddo protagonista di questa inquietante storia: un misterioso medaglione.
