    Literary Knowledge (1890-1950): Modernisms and the Sciences in Europe
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

The programme focusses...

    Colonised Citizens
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Colonized Citizens is a subproject in the research programme Literary Knowledge (1890-1950): Modernisms and the Sciences in Europe . The project focuses on colonial literature in Belgium and Germany, both ‘late participants’ in the European colonial endeavour. These countries' expansion of national sovereignty to overseas territories was permeated by the many life-management discourses that drew on the insights of genetics and eugenics. It comes as no surprise that these discourses were...

    Modern Etruscans
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Modern Etruscans is a subproject in the research programme Literary Knowledge (1890-1950): Modernisms and the Sciences in Europe . The project explores the ways in which an increasingly specialized knowledge of Etruscan culture affected not only Italian but also other Western European literatures in the modernist period. Especially after the political unification of Italy, in 1861, a new interest in Ancient Rome and other local italic cultures spread on the Italian peninsula, leading,...

    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Avant-Garde Egypt is a subproject in the research programme Literary Knowledge (1890-1950): Modernisms and the Sciences in Europe . The project investigates literary interactions between the European historical avant-gardes and the contemporaneous popular interest in Egyptology. The last decade of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century saw archaeology emerge as a distinct and methodological science proper as compared to its previous status as the realm of treasure hunting...

Through a detailed study of both the actual stories and the views on the short story in The Bell within the larger literary, cultural and ideological framework of this periodical, the...
