The American Presidency Excerpt :

Understanding the presidency of the United States requires taking seriously the role that individuals play in history, but at the same time also taking seriously the realization that individual presidents are bound by legal and institutional structures as well as by cultural and economic forces often beyond their control. This is why the task of this book is to characterize the modern American presidency from a variety of academic disciplines such as history, political science and cultural studies as well as from different theoretical approaches. The essays collected in this volume grew out of conference papers held at the 2008 Annual Meeting of the German Association for American Studies (DGfA), which was held in Heidelberg between May 15 and 18, 2008. Many essays are deliberately interpretive, some offer assessments of individual presidents and of particular events, others are more contextual and focus on presidential performance, on presidential rhetoric or on representations of the presidency in fiction, film and drama.

Gadamer in Conversation Excerpt :

This volume presents six lively conversations with Hans-Georg Gadamer (born 1900), one of the twentieth century's master philosophers. Looking back over his life and thought, Gadamer takes up key issues in his philosophy, addresses points of controversy, and replies to his critics, including those who accuse him of having been in complicity with the Nazis. A genial and direct conversationalist, Gadamer is here captured at his best and most accessible. The interviews took place between 1989 and 1996, and all but one appear in English for the first time in this volume. The first three conversations, conducted by Heidelberg philosopher Carsten Dutt, deal with hermeneutics, aesthetics, and practical philosophy and the question of ethics. In a fourth conversation, with University of Heidelberg classics professor Glenn W. Most, Gadamer argues for the vital importance of the Greeks for our contemporary thinking. In the next, the philosopher reaffirms his connection with phenomenology and clarifies his relation to Husserl and Heidegger in a conversation with London philosopher Alfons Grieder. In the final interview, with German Nazi expert Dorte von Westernhagen, Gadamer describes his life

Making America Excerpt :

Making America tackles issues crucial to the formation and continuing re-imagination of American identity - and accordingly crucial to the field of American Studies - from contemporary theoretical positions. The essays collected in this volume are based on the premise that literature and other cultural artifacts make culture work and thus make culture. Hence they explore, from various critical angles, the interdependencies of this process whereby American cultural and national identity has been - and still is - shaped and challenged at the same time. Consequently, the volume foregrounds the rhetorical strategies which, orchestrating various conflicting cultural forces, locations, and voices, produce the multi-faceted phenomenon 'America'. The central interest which animates the critical work of the collaborative project of Making America is the dialogue between text and theory.
