‘Amerikastudien / American Studies: A Quarterly’ (Amst) is the official journal of the German Association for American Studies, dedicated to an interdisciplinary and transnational concept of American Studies and covering all areas of the discipline, including literary and cultural criticism, media, history, political science, linguistics, and pedagogy. The forum section includes innovative formats and scholarly opinions on current debates in the field as well as other open formats, such as interviews and short dialogical position papers. ‘Amst’ publishes reviews with an emphasis on scholarly contributions (not exclusively) from German-speaking countries to the wider field of American Studies. The journal continuously invites suggestions for new formats to allow for cutting-edge scholarship and intellectual debate.

Carmen Birkle, Johanna Heil (Hrsg.): Communicating Disease: Cultural Representations of American Medicine

Communicating Disease: Cultural Representations of American Medicine
Universitätsverlag Winter, 2013
ISBN: 978-3-8253-6215-7

‘Communicating Disease’ focuses on the intersections of literature and medicine. It unravels the intricate entanglement of culture and disease and is devoted to the representation of life through medical narratives, exploring its value to both the literary critic and the medical practitioner. Grouped in four sections, the contributions to this volume discuss cultural representations of medical practice, the medical profession, diseases and epidemics, and potential healing functions of narratives. Topics range from eighteenth-century Old and New World practices of medicine via the careers of nineteenth-century women doctors and nurses subverting dominant gender norms, to twentieth- and twenty-first-century cognitive sciences; from smallpox epidemics via yellow fever to AIDS and biotechnology; from Alice James and Charlotte Perkins Gilman to Siri Hustvedt and Richard Powers as well as women pathologists on the screen; to be concluded by a transnational reading of the world of medicine in the medium of literature.

Sonja Fielitz: Einführung in die anglistisch-amerikanische Dramenanalyse

Einführung in die anglistisch-amerikanische Dramenanalyse
Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft, 2010
ISBN: 978-3534233939

Diese Einführung stellt das erforderliche Instrumentarium für die Beschreibung und Analyse der Gattung Drama bereit. Leitgedanke hierfür ist die enge Verbindung von Drama und Theater. Der Schwerpunkt der Darstellung liegt auf der textnahen Analyse von Figuren, Handlungen, Zeit und Raum. Ein Ausblick auf die Filmanalyse beschließt den Band.

Sonja Fielitz legt mit diesem Band eine umfassende Einführung in die Dramenanalyse vor. Sie greift konsequent aktuelle Forschungsansätze auf und behandelt das Drama durchgängig in enger Verbindung mit dem Theater. Deutlich wird so, dass die literarische Textvorlage mit ihrer szenischen Präsentation auf der Bühne untrennbar verbunden ist.
Die verschiedenen Analyseansätze für den Text, die Aufführung und die Beziehung zwischen Text und Aufführung werden ausführlich behandelt. Besonderes Augenmerk gilt dabei den wichtigen Kategorien Figuren, Handlungen, Zeit und Raum. Werke von Shakespeare, Thornton Wilder, Arthur Miller, Oscar Wilde, Samuel Beckett, Harold Pinter, Edward Albee und Caryl Churchill veranschaulichen das Vorgehen. Übergreifende Kapitel sind schließlich den Grundlagen der Kommunikation und Semiotik sowie der Filmanalyse gewidmet.(Verlagsinformation)

Sandra Götz und Magali Paquot (Hrsg.): International Journal of Learner Corpus Research

International Journal of Learner Corpus Research
John Benjamins Publishing 
ISSN: 2215-1478
E-ISSN: 2215-1486

The International Journal of Learner Corpus Research (IJLCR) is a forum for researchers who collect, annotate, and analyse computer learner corpora and/or use them to investigate topics in Second Language Acquisition and linguistic theory in general, inform foreign language teaching, develop learner-corpus-informed tools (e.g. courseware, proficiency tests, dictionaries and grammars) or conduct natural language processing tasks (e.g. annotation, automatic spell- and grammar-checking, L1 identification). IJLCR aims to highlight the multidisciplinary and broad scope of practice that characterizes the field and publishes original research covering methodological, theoretical and applied work in any area of learner corpus research. 

Agnieszka Leńko-Szymańska und Sandra Götz (Hrsg.): Complexity, Accuracy and Fluency in Learner Corpus Research

Complexity, Accuracy and Fluency in Learner Corpus Research
John Benjamins Publishing, 2022
ISBN 9789027212580

This volume illustrates the high potential of learner corpus investigations for research into the CAF triad by presenting eleven original learner corpus-based studies which are set within solid theoretical frameworks, examine learner corpora with state-of-the-art analytical techniques and yield highly interesting findings. The volume’s major strength lies in the range of issues it undertakes and in its interdisciplinary thematic novelty. The chapters collectively address all three dimensions of L2 performance related to different linguistic subsystems (i.e. lexical, phraseological and grammatical complexity and accuracy, along with fluency) as well as the interactions among these constructs. The studies are based on data drawn from carefully compiled learner corpora which are analysed with the help of diverse corpus-based methods. The theoretical discussions and the empirical results shall contribute to the advancement of the fields of SLA and writing and speech research and shall inspire further investigations in the area of the CAF triad.

Rolf Kreyer: The Nature of Rules, Regularities and Units in Language: A Network Model of the Language System and of Language Use

The Nature of Rules, Regularities and Units in Language: A Network Model of the Language System and of Language Use
De Gruyter Mouton, 2013
ISBN 978-3-11-031832-6

Comprehensive networks of language make use of structures that go beyond the basic associative connections that can be found in the brain. This study is an attempt to provide an account of language that restricts itself to structures of a neurophysiological kind, i.e. simple nodes, excitatory and inhibitory connections. It is shown that fundamental aspects of language system and use can be explained with such a simple and cognitively plausible network.

Alessandra Boller, Angela Krewani, Martin Kuester (Hrsg.): Canadian Ecologies Beyond Environmentalism

Culture, Media, Art, Ethnicities
WVT, Trier, 2020
ISBN: 978-3-86821-860-2

Over the last few decades, the term ‘ecology’ has been used in a variety of contexts. While it originated in biology, it has more recently also been applied to the interaction of systems, Owhether they be technological or organic, and, in a further step, at systemic exchanges in the realms of culture, literature and media. A revisiting and re-evaluation of ecology, which goes beyond the equation of ecology with environmentalism, becomes increasingly pressing today in the context of ideologies, new scientific breakthroughs, new media environments or backlashes in the fight against global warming, for example.

This publication thus seeks to trace the historical, aesthetic and systemic dimensions of ecological practices in Canada, starting with the role of Canadian media philosopher Marshall McLuhan and paying special attention to First Nations contributions to contemporary views of ecology in and beyond our natural environment and to the potentials of approaching literature, film, comics, art and video games from the vantage point of cultural ecology.

Canadian Ecologies Beyond Environmentalism features contributions from European and Canadian experts in media, cultural and literary studies. (Verlagsinformation)
