Winner of the Aldo and Jeanne Scaglione Prize for Studies in Germanic Languages and Literatures (Awarded by the MLA)
With an innovative approach that combines material media history, media theory, and literary poetics, this book reconstructs the great German writer Theodor Fontane's creative process.
From the time of Charles Dickens, the imaginative power of the city of London has frequently inspired writers to their most creative flights of fantasy. Fairy Tales of London explores a powerful tradition of urban fantasy distinct from the rural tales of writers such as J. R. R. Tolkien.
Art and Visual Culture
The splendour of the Château and the masterpieces of art and design that it contains mask a more complex and sometimes more sordid history of human struggle and achievement. The essays in this volume show that Versailles was not the static creation of one man, but a hugely complex cultural space; a centre of power, but also of life, love, anxiety, and creation.
Film and Media Studies
The Cinema of Sofia Coppola provides the first comprehensive analysis of Coppola’s oeuvre that situates her work broadly in relation to contemporary artistic, social and cultural currents, and is beautifully illustrated with color images from her films, as well as artworks and advertising artefacts.
It is rarely appreciated how much of the history of Eurasian medicine in the premodern period hinges on cross-cultural interactions and knowledge transmissions. Using manuscripts found in key Eurasian nodes of the medieval world, the book analyses a number of case-studies of Eurasian medical encounters, giving a voice to places, languages, people and narratives which were once prominent but have gone silent.
What might our cities look like in ten, twenty or fifty years? In this lavishly illustrated text, the authors apply several critical lenses to consider the subject in different ways: technological futures, social futures, and global futures, providing a comprehensive survey and analysis of visions for future cities, and engaging creatively with how we perceive tomorrow’s world and future studies more widely.
