History and literature in conversation

Cover Briefe und Tagebücher zwischen Text und Quelle
In this volume, historians and literary critics jointly explore the literary genres of letters and diaries, which, for historians, are a key historical source. This interdisciplinary perspective opens up new epistemological opportunities, and it demonstrates, how stimulating an interdisciplinary conversation about genres can be. The volume presents a multi-facetted panorama of epistolary and diaristic cultures from the early modern period to the twentieth century.

From the 'Law and Literature' Movement

Cover Tragödie des Rechts
The book breaks down the boundaries between art and science by presenting the materialistic critique of law in the tradition of Karl Marx partly in the form of a modern tragedy. The dramatic text about the plight of Soviet legal theorist Evgeny B. Pashukanis is complemented by further reflections on the role that the critique of law plays in modern society. Together, play and reflections form a new way of scientific-artistic presentation, actualizing Brecht’s epic theatre in the 21st century.
