Zum Verschwinden und Fortwirken eines Grundbegriffs
[The Work: On the Disappearance and Continued Impact of a Basic Concept]
Ed. by Danneberg, Lutz / Gilbert, Annette / Spoerhase, Carlos
Aims and Scope
The category of the “work” has been the subject of intense criticism in literary studies over the past 50 years. Quite recently, however, there are signs that the once scorned notion of the work is slowly regaining its place as a central and positive analytic category. This volume examines developing forms and functions of the concept of the “work” in 21st century humanities scholarship.
