9789042031999: Imagology Revisited. (Studia Imagologica)

Imagology Revisited brings together in one volume essays written over a forty-year period on the perception and representation of foreign countries and peoples, the "other". The book traces the emergence of national and ethnic stereotypes in the early modern age and studies their evolution and multiple functions in a wide range of texts from travelogues and diaries to novels, plays and poetry, produced between the 16th and 20th centuries. The collection of essays, many of which are appearing in English for the first time, examines such phenomena as the mutual perception and misperception of Europeans and (North) Americans and the role of the theory of climate as a justification for stereotyped representations. It analyzes such national images as the hetero-stereotypes of Germans and Austrians in North American texts, and illuminates the depiction of the English abroad, as well as that of the Scots, the Jews and Italians in American literature. The book is of interest to comparatists, to practitioners of cultural studies and cultural history, to scholars in the fields of ethnic and inter-cultural German studies and especially to Anglicists and Americanists.

Review:

This meticulously edited collection of twenty-three articles comprises the results of Zacharasiewicz s forty years of research in the field of alterity studies, i.e. the perception and representation of foreign countries and peoples . The reader of the present review will rightly conclude that the book s cavalcade of images assumes almost Herculean dimensions. It embraces an astounding variety of subjects covering centuries and continents, but his multifaceted mosaic is held together by the terminology used and the application of models of thought such as climate theory. The book will be of invaluable assistance for everyone who delves into the field of imagological studies or is interested in such concepts as alterity, ethnocentrism, and transnationalism. The bibliography (roughly one thousand entries) and the opening review of research alone will be a treasure house for them. Jurgen C. Wolter (Wuppertal), in Amerikastudien: A Quarterly 58.2 (2013), pp. 310-312"
