The editorial board is delighted to announce the 19th issue of Textpraxis. Digital Journal for Philology.
In the 19th issue of Textpraxis, Adrian Brauneis discusses the concept of ›Anschaulichkeit‹. By discussing Christian Kracht’s novel Die Toten (The Dead, 2016). Brauneis explores how ›Anschaulichkeit‹ enhances the reader’s ability to conceptualize literary descriptions as sensory perceptions.
Katharina Andrea Kalthoff and Leonie Windt-Wetzel investigate the emotional challenges of fictional characters with environmental changes. In their contribution entitled »Endangered Shorelines and Absent Solastalgia in Recent English, Irish, and Northern Irish Short Fiction«, they further discuss how the concept of ›solastalgia‹ – or its absence – might be useful for the latest debates within the field of ecocriticism.
We are particularly excited to announce our very first podcast as a new, soon-to-be regular feature. Our kick-off podcast session starts with an interview of Jörg Albrecht, the artistic director of the Center for Literature at Burg Hülshoff.. In his interview, Albrecht primarily addresses the issues of transformation, digitalization, and the public when promoting literature.
We especially thank our reviewers PD Dr. Nadine Böhm-Schnitker, Dr. Katharina Führholzer and Prof. Dr. Tilmann Köppe for their time and commitment.
Our editorial board has changed since our jubilee-issue last fall: While Yashka Chavan left the board – thank you very much for your productive participation! – we welcome our new members Max Alsmann, Dominik Hübschmann, Eva Tanita Kraaz, and Roman Seebeck.
As for you, dear readers, we hope you enjoy the new issue. As always, we are very much looking forward to comments and discussions – on our homepage as on our twitter-account @textpraxis.
