Applications of Network Theories

Edited by: Susanne Kramarz-Bein, Birge Hilsmann

The metaphor of 'the net' has inspired literary studies for years, as the importance of the web as a real life dispositif has continued to increase. The ten essays in this book show the importance of networks to thought and culture, even long before the invention of telecommunications. The book presents a range of possible applications of various network approaches, from ancient Icelandic and courtly Scandinavian literature, via Uppsala romanticism, the Flemish movement, and French modernists, up to recent Norwegian poetics. Meanwhile, a critical stance to the theories' epistemic value also has its place in the book. (Series: Scandinavian Studies. Language - Literature - Culture / Skandinavistik.
