Die Einsicht in die Polyvalenz poetischer Texte zähmt die noch jeder Form diskursiver Analyse von Kunstwerken eigene Tendenz, Sinn und Bedeutung festzuschreiben. Im Spannungsfeld zwischen der anarchischen “Lust am Text“ (Roland Barthes) und der “Wut des Verstehens“ (Jochen Hörisch) behaupten sich die 'Lektüren', die als Verstehensangebote der Vieldeutigkeit literarischer Werke durch Analysen von Form und Inhalt zur Sichtbarkeit verhelfen wollen, ohne ihnen den Atem abzuschnüren. Ihr Ziel ist es nicht, das “Rätsel“ (Adorno) literarischer Kunstwerke zu lösen, sondern es als “Rätsel“ in seinen vielfältigen Bedeutungsdimensionen erfahrbar zu machen. Von hier aus versammelt der vorliegende Band 'neue' Lektüren als Angebot zum Gespräch und Herausforderung, Texte als Mittel intensiver Blicköffnungen zu begreifen, was nichts anderes heißt als: immer wieder aufs Neue zu lesen. Der Band enthält Studien zu Medea-Bildern (Anna Chiarloni), Marie von Ebner-EschenbachsDas Schädliche (Erika Tunner), der Figur des Juden in romantischen Märchen (Martha B.

Reports of the book’s death have been greatly exaggerated. Books are flourishing in the Internet era?widely discussed and reviewed in online readers’ forums and publicized through book trailers and author blog tours. But over the past twenty-five years, digital media platforms have undeniably transformed book culture. Since Amazon’s founding in 1994, the whole way in which books are created, marketed, publicized, sold, reviewed, showcased, consumed, and commented upon has changed dramatically. The digital literary sphere is no mere appendage to the world of print?it is where literary reputations are made, movements are born, and readers passionately engage with their favorite works and authors. In The Digital Literary Sphere, Simone Murray considers the contemporary book world from multiple viewpoints. By examining reader engagement with the online personas of Margaret Atwood, John Green, Gary Shteyngart, David Foster Wallace, Karl Ove Knausgaard, and even Jonathan Franzen, among others, Murray reveals the dynamic interrelationship of print and digital technologies. Drawing on approaches from literary studies, media and cultural studies, book history, cultural policy, and the digital humanities, this book asks: What is the significance of authors communicating directly to readers via social media? How does digital media reframe the "live" author-reader encounter? And does the growing army of reader-reviewers signal an overdue democratizing of literary culture or the atomizing of cultural authority? In exploring these questions, The Digital Literary Sphere takes stock of epochal changes in the book industry while probing books’ and digital media’s complex contemporary coexistence.

Today we are witnessing dramatic changes in the way scientific and scholarlyknowledge is created, codified, and communicated. This transformation is connected to the use ofdigital technologies and the virtualization of knowledge. In this book, scholars from a range ofdisciplines consider just what, if anything, is new when knowledge is produced in new ways. Doesknowledge itself change when the tools of knowledge acquisition, representation, and distributionbecome digital? Issues of knowledge creation and dissemination go beyond thedevelopment and use of new computational tools. The book, which draws on work from the VirtualKnowledge Studio, brings together research on scientific practice, infrastructure, and technology.Focusing on issues of digital scholarship in the humanities and social sciences, the contributorsdiscuss who can be considered legitimate knowledge creators, the value of "invisible"labor, the role of data visualization in policy making, the visualization of uncertainty, theconceptualization of openness in scholarly communication, data floods in the social sciences, andhow expectations about future research shape research practices. The contributors combine anappreciation of the transformative power of the virtual with a commitment to the empirical study ofpractice and use. The hardcover edition does not include a dust jacket.

A revelation in literary criticism, Philip Mead's NETWORKED LANGUAGE offers absorbing new perspectives on Australian poetry and its cultural life. This study presents new ways of understanding Australian poetry, drawing on an equal fascination with the artifice of poetry and the complexity of culture. It is about the ways poetry changes in relation to its social, political and historical contexts, the way poetic communities and the readerships of poetry have changed through history, and continue to change in the present. "Mead's scholarly tentacles go very deep and his insights are seriously new. This book will be most valuable, and will last." -- Chris Wallace-Crabbe
