The Sexual History of the Global South explores the gap between sexuality studies and post-colonial cultural critique. Featuring twelve case studies, based on original historical and ethnographic research from countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, the book examines the sexual investments underlying the colonial project and the construction of modern nation-states. Covering issues of heteronormativity, post-colonial amnesia regarding non-normative sexualities, women's sexual agency, the policing of the boundaries between the public and the private realm, sexual citizenship, the connections between LGBTQ activism and processes of state formation, and the emergence of sexuality studies in the global South, this collection is of great geographical, historical, and topical significance.

William Faulkner in Context explores the environment that conditioned Faulkner's creative work. This book provides a broad and authoritative framework that will help readers to better understand this widely read yet challenging writer. Each essay offers a critical assessment of Faulkner's work as it relates to such topics as genre, reception, and the significance of place. Although Faulkner dwelt in his native Mississippi throughout his life, his visits to cities like New Orleans, Paris, and Los Angeles profoundly shaped his early career. Inextricable from the dramatic upheavals of the twentieth century, Faulkner's writing was deeply affected by the Great War, the Great Depression, World War II, and the civil rights movement. In this volume, a host of renowned scholars shed light on this enigmatic writer and render him accessible to students and researchers alike.

This study is the first to examine the contribution made by women writers to politically committed literature in 1930s France. Its purpose is to bring to light the work of female authors of left-wing fiction whose novels are comparable to those of well-known male practitioners of littérature engagée, such as Paul Nizan and Louis Aragon. It analyses the work of Madeleine Pelletier, Simone Téry, Edith Thomas, Henriette Valet and Louise Weiss in the context of the inter-war models of committed literature in relation to which they were produced. Consideration of this body of fictional texts, not previously brought together by literary historians, shows how women were able to relate to fiction and to politics in inter-war France. Situating the novels within their social, historical, literary and political environment, the book contributes to the literary and cultural history of twentieth century France. The analysis of inter-war political writing by women calls into question the criteria against which women's writing has been evaluated by feminist scholarship.

English summary: The Song of Songs tells a story which alternates between poetry and narrative. In this work, Stefan Fischer presents a new translation of the Song of Songs, showing how its plot focuses on the intimacy between the lovers, and describes its narrative elements. For his interpretation, he draws on the aesthetics of reception and structuralism. His work provides a new interpretation of the text as a dramatic form of a sapiential teacher's narrative and also makes an exemplary contribution to the methodology of applying literary approaches to the Old Testament. It also opens up new horizons for a dialogical approach to the text. German description: Das Hohelied Salomos erzahlt eine Liebesgeschichte. Es steht zwischen Poesie und Erzahlung. Deshalb bestimmen rezeptionsasthetische und strukturalistische Ansatze die Interpretation. Stefan Fischer bietet eine neue Ubersetzung und eine Strukturanalyse, welche zeigt, dass die Vereinigung der Liebenden im Zentrum steht. Die synchrone Textanalyse erfolgt mit literaturwissenschaftlichen Methoden der Erzahltextanalyse. Dazu analysiert der Autor die konstitutiven Elemente der Darstellung im Anschluss an Gerard Genette und bestimmt die Bausteine der Handlung. Somit bietet das Buch eine neue Interpretation als dramatische Form einer weisheitlichen Lehrerzahlung und einen exemplarischen Beitrag zur Methodik der Anwendung literaturwissenschaftlicher Ansatze auf das Alte Testament. Es offnet den Horizont fur einen dialogischen Zugang zum Text, der nicht auf autoritative Weisung angelegt ist.
