Textpraxis # 11
In this eleventh issue of Textpraxis, Josch Lampe analyzes ›black‹ perspectives on Germany around 1900, Robert Matthias Erdbeer discusses the functions and meanings of modeling for the analysis of literary and digital texts and Ilse Orth talks about the benefits of »Poesie -und Bibliotherapie«.
The eleventh edition of our digital journal of Philology once again opens up a wide range of subjects with its three new contributions: In the »Literature and Society« section, Josch Lampe (Connecticut) analyzes Friedrich Maharero and Nayo Bruce, and thus two different ›black‹ perspectives on Germany around 1900. In the »Theories of Literary Study« section, Robert Matthias Erdbeer (Münster) discusses the question in how far functions and meanings of modeling can be fruitful for the analysis of literary and digital texts – as a model poetics (»Modellpoetik«). In the »Literary Studies and Praxis« section, Textpraxis presents an interview about »Poesie-und Bibliotherapie« with the psychotherapist Ilse Orth (Erkrath).
The team of Textpraxis likes to welcome Matthias Agethen from the DFG graduate school »Literarische Form« to the editorial board. We look forward to working together!
Our special thanks once again goes to all the authors and reviewers who have worked together intensively on the contributions. Following the principles of Open Access, Textpraxis wants to further deepen the dialogue between text producers and text recipients. We therefore invite our readers to make use of the comment function or to respond to one of the published articles with a detailed replica. Certainly, the publications offer considerable potential for discussion!
