From his arrival in Britain in the 1950s and involvement in the New Left, to founding the field of cultural studies and examining race and identity in the 1990s and early 2000s, Stuart Hall has been central to shaping many of the cultural and political debates of our time. Essential Essays—a landmark two-volume set—brings together Stuart Hall's most influential and foundational works. Spanning the whole of his career, these volumes reflect the breadth and depth of his intellectual and political projects while demonstrating their continued vitality and importance. Volume 2: Identity and Diaspora draws from Hall's later essays, in which he investigated questions of colonialism, empire, and race. It opens with “Gramsci's Relevance for the Study of Race and Ethnicity,” which frames the volume and finds Hall rethinking received notions of racial essentialism. In addition to essays on multiculturalism and globalization, black popular culture, and Western modernity's racial underpinnings, Volume 2 contains three interviews with Hall, in which he reflects on his life to theorize his identity as a colonial and diasporic subject.
Dieser Sammelband zu Gottfried Keller wurdigt den 150. Jahrestag der Publikation des ersten Bandes der "Leute von Seldwyla" und berucksichtigt die neue historisch-kritische Ausgabe von Kellers Werken, herausgegeben unter der Leitung von Walter Morgenthaler (2000). Der Band enthalt zwolf Beitrage von elf Autoren, die den Novellenzyklus von verschiedenen Seiten aus betrachten. Schwerpunkte dieser interdisziplinaren Studie sind die philosophische Position Kellers, seine Ansichten zur Schweizer Okonomie, zur Padagogik und zu politischen Tagesfragen der Zeit. Etwa die Halfte der Beitrage behandelt einzelne Novellen ("Kleider machen Leute, Die missbrauchten Liebesbriefe, Das verlorene Lachen, "die beiden "Vorreden"), wahrend weitere Aufsatze Kellers Realismus und seiner Erzahltechnik gewidmet sind. This book will take note of the 150th anniversary of part one of Keller's Seldwyla stories using the new critical edition of "Die Leute von Seldwyla," published in 2000 by Walter Morgenthaler. Though intended for scholars of German literature, the study, containing twelve contributions by eleven authors, is interdisciplinary in nature and discusses the impact of German philosophy (Feuerbach, Vischer) on Keller's work as well as Keller's interest in economics, education and Swiss political life. About half the contributions focus on individual stories, in particular "Kleider machen Leute, Die missbrauchten Liebesbriefe" and "Das verlorene Lachen," while the remainder either comment on Keller's two prefaces to the "Novellen" or deal with overarching aspects such as Keller's realism and his narrative technique."
