New Issue of the E-Journal “Transcultural Studies”

Jan 09, 2015

The new issue of the e-journal Transcultural Studies is now available online. It features articles by Bernd Schneidmüller, Rudolph Ng, Benjamin Zachariah, and Joyce Brodsky, in addition to a podcast of a lecture by Nikolas Jaspert.

This issue of Transcultural Studies brings together five fine studies with three different foci. Each essay argues with its own modern countertext, which helps sharpen its profile and highlights its relevance for present-day scholarly and public debate. And all five open the door to new questions about processes of transcultural interaction and their dynamics, as Rudolf G. Wagner writes in his editorial note.

Issue No. 2 (2014) presents the following articles:

  • Bernd Schneidmueller: Fitting Medieval Europe into the World. Patterns of Integration, Migration, and Uniqueness
  • Rudolph Ng: The Commission to Cuba (1874): Reexamining International Relations in the Nineteenth Century from a Transcultural Perspective
  • Benjamin Zachariah: A Voluntary Gleichschaltung? Indian Perspectives Towards a non-Eurocentric Understanding of Fascism
  • Joyce Brodsky: Crossing Boundaries: the Art of Anjali Deshmukh and Rohini Devasher (In Collaboration with the Artists)

In addition, the issue includes a multimedia section:

  • Nikolas Jaspert: Cultural Brokerage: A Medieval Mediterranean Perspective
