    If what begins already finds itself in the thick of it, in the midst of something else, and among others elsewhere, what emerges, in the middle, at this mid-place or mi-lieu , does not thereby constitute a centre. Without starting or end point, origin or telos, this middle is deprived of any coordinates, frame, or foundation, of any measure with respect to them.

    HERILIGION. The Heritagization of Religion and Sacralization of Heritage
    Submitted by: Redaktion

    What happens when religious sites, objects and practices are simultaneously considered heritage? Since World War II, cultural heritage is increasingly seen as defining identities and communities in times of change, and often what is now considered heritage was and still is seen as religious in nature and possibly sacred.

    World Literatures. Cosmopolitan and Vernacular Dynamics
    Submitted by: Redaktion

    Based at Stockholm University, this research programme will run from 2016 until 2021 with the generous support of The Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences. Its task is to explore, across numerous languages, how aesthetic values, genres, forms, literary communities and individual authorships are shaped in trade-offs between the local and the global, the national and the transnational, and between hegemonic and dominated languages in Asian, African, European and American contexts.

    Zukunftsphilologie: Revisiting the Canons of Textual Scholarship
    Submitted by: Redaktion

    Zukunftsphilologie fördert grundlegende Textforschung über den klassischen humanistischen Kanon hinaus.

Unterstützt werden vernachlässigte Zweige philologischer Forschung. Das ausdrückliche Ziel dabei ist die Eingliederung von Texten und wissenschaftlichen Traditionen aus Asien, Afrika, dem Nahen Osten und auch...
