Book Review: The Routledge Handbook of Transregional Studies

By Jeremy Adelman. A few years ago, I organized a symposium at Princeton University. The theme was: does globalization mean that the social sciences (broadly defined) need to rethink their intellectual foundations? In the end, we came to a draw. Some felt that old models and familiar framings worked fine. Others saw global integration as an intellectual shakeup of the bedrock of methodological nationalism.

Jesuit legacy in Beijing: Sacred Buildings and Transcultural Spaces

By Lianming Wang. Following the “global turn” in the 1990s, and particularly stimulated by Gauvin Alexander Bailey’s path-breaking Art on the Jesuit Missions in Asia and Latin America, 1542–1773, the study of Jesuit art and architecture has grown into a remarkably dynamic field that provides marvellous insights for reading art history through a cross-cultural and transregional lens.

Training as a Gatekeeper at the Indo-German Factory

By Josefine Carla Hoffmann. Vocational education and training was an important part of Indo-German technical collaboration from the mid-1950s onwards. Companies and other institutions all over India collaborated with the West German state and its companies, rhetorically stressing the priority of skilling the workforce, amongst other things.

Bringing Philosophy and Sociology to the Egyptian Public

By Amro Ali (Philosophy/Sociology, The American University in Cairo, Egypt). An enthusiastic Egyptian youth exited the closing of a lecture event in late November 2017 and rushed to a coffeehouse near Tahrir Square to meet up with his friends. He told them about this woman thinker called ‘Hannah Arendt’ who he just learned about and her peculiar idea of ‘new beginnings.’

Imagining Southern Spaces: Hemispheric and Transatlantic Souths in Antebellum US Writings

By Deniz Bozkurt-Pekár. Let me set the scene: A rich meadow expanding by the bountiful river, a gentleman leaning on the white column of the porch of a haint-blue mansion, a pale-white lady in flamboyant attire sitting on a rocking-chair behind him, away from them yet within their eyesight are the cotton, corn, or tobacco fields hiding behind their crop the tired bodies of black men, women, and children.

The National Frame: Art and State Violence in Turkey and Germany

By Banu Karaca. The National Frame emerged out of my long-term interest in art, aesthetics and politics. I have always been fascinated by the dominant notion that art is inherently good, by the many values that are accorded to art – be it that art furthers individual agency and critical faculties, the emancipatory potential of art, or its civilizing impact – and the realities that shape the daily workings of the art world.

Why Non-European Languages Matter to European Humanities: Area Studies and Postcolonial Philology

By Christian Junge (Arabic Studies, University of Marburg, Germany). English is, without doubt, the dominant academic language of our time, especially in the natural sciences, where materials are often taught and published in English. On the contrary, in European humanities, scholars of literary and cultural studies, linguistics and philosophy teach and publish quite widely in minor academic languages, such as German, Italian or Polish.

لماذا تهمّ اللغات غير الأوروبية الإنسانيات الأوروبية: دراسات المناطق وفقه اللغة ما بعد الاستعماري

كريستيان يونغي (الدراسات العربية، جامعة ماربورغ، ألمانيا). لا شك أنَّ اللغة الإنكليزية هي اللغة الأكاديمية السائدة في عصرنا، لا سيما في العلوم الطبيعية، إذ غالبًا ما تُدرَّس المواد وتُنشر باللغة الإنكليزية. وبخلاف ذلك، فإنَّ باحثيّ الدراسات الأدبية والثقافية واللغويات والفلسفة، في الإنسانيات الأوروبية، يدرّسون وينشرون على نطاق واسع بلغات أكاديمية ثانوية، مثل الألمانية أو الإيطالية أو البولندية.

L’historiographie africaine et les défis de la périodisation européenne : un commentaire historique

Un texte de Ihediwa Nkemjika Chimee. L’historiographie africaine suit des divisions, schémas et séquences imposés par les européens. Ceux-ci ont affirmé dans le passé que l’histoire africaine n’existait pas et que l’histoire de l’Afrique débute avec l’histoire des européens en Afrique.
