Produktbeschreibung
Bringing together innovative and internationally renowned experts, this volume provides concise presentations of the main concepts and cutting-edge research fields in the study of culture (rather than the infinite multitude of possible themes). More specifically, the volume outlines different models for the study of culture, explores avenues for interdisciplinary exchange, assesses key concepts and traces their travels across various disciplinary, historical and national contexts. To trace the travelling of concepts means to map both their transfer from one discipline, approach or culture of research to another, and also to identify the transformations which emerge through these processes of transfer. The volume serves to show that working with (travelling) concepts provides a unique strategy for research and research design which can open up a wide range of promising perspectives for interdisciplinary exchange. It offers an exemplary overview of an interdisciplinary and international approach to the travelling concepts that organize, structure and shape the study of culture. In doing so, the volume serves to initiate a dialogue that exceeds disciplinary and national boundaries and introduces a self-reflexive dimension to the field, thus affording a recognition of how deeply disciplinary premises and nation-specific research traditions affect different approaches in the study of culture.
Die Reihe widmet sich zentralen neueren Konzepten und Methoden im Feld der kulturwissenschaftlichen Grundlagenforschung und inhaltlichen Fragestellungen. Sie zielt darauf, die gegenwärtige Diskussion in den Kulturwissenschaften weiter zu profilieren und sie zugleich für die Arbeit in den Disziplinen fruchtbar zu machen: durch die Ausarbeitung interdisziplinärer Schlüsselkonzepte und die Entwicklung einer transkulturellen study of culture .
Die Bände gehen überwiegend aus den Literatur-, Geschichts- und Kulturwissenschaften hervor, aber auch aus der Politikwissenschaft, der Soziologie und den Medienwissenschaften.
