Die Tagungsbeitrage, die in diesem Band vereint sind, nahern sich der vermeintlichen Grauzone zwischen Antike und Mittelalter nicht nur interdisziplinar, sondern sowohl von der Antike als auch vom Mittelalter her an. Um dem betrachteten Phanomen in seiner Gesamtheit gerecht werden zu konnen, wurde bewusst der weitgefasste Begriff des -Ortes- gewahlt, eine einengende Beschrankung auf -Stadt- oder -Burg- vermeidend, und auch eine -Kontinuitat- sollte nicht suggeriert werden. Wie diese Beitrage zeigen, war es eben die Frage nach -Kontinuitat-, und weit wichtiger noch die Definition einer solchen, die fur die weitere Forschung ein weites Betatigungsfeld lasst: Es wurde deutlich, dass -Kontinuitat- nicht verstanden werden kann als ein alles umfassendes Phanomen, und oftmals auch nur durch ihr Nicht-Vorhandensein ins Zentrum der Uberlegungen ruckt."

The increasing popularity of bande dessinee, or French-language comic strip, means that it is being established on university syllabuses worldwide. Reading Bande Dessinee provides a thorough introduction to the medium and in-depth critical analysis with focus on contemporary examples of the art form, historical context, key artists, and themes such as gender, autobiography and postcolonial culture. Miller's groundbreaking book demonstrates exactly why bande dessinee is considered to be a visual narrative art form and encourages the reader to appreciate and understand it to the best of their abilities. Miller also provides the terminology, framework and tools necessary for study, highly relevant to current curriculum and she creates a multi-disciplinary, comprehensive approach to the subject matter. Reading Bande Dessinee draws from analytical viewpoints such as narratology, cultural studies and gender studies to illuminate the form fully, examining how it can be seen to undermine mythologies of national and cultural identity, investigating the satirical possibilities and looking at how the comic strip may contest normative representations of the body according to gender theories. This volume explores the controversy surrounding the comic strips in contemporary French society and traces the historical and cultural implications surrounding the legitimization of bande dessinee. With the growing academic readership of bande dessinee this book proves to be an invaluable analysis for scholars of the postmodern narrative art. Reading Bande Dessinee is also an essential resource for anyone interested in the cultural context, visual and narrative meaning and intricacies of the art form.

War, Memory, and the Politics of Humor features carnage and cannibalism, gender and cross-dressing, drunks and heroes, militarism and memory, all set against the background of World War I France. Allen Douglas shows how a new satiric weekly, the Canard Enchaîné, exploited these topics and others to become one of France's most influential voices of reaction to the Great War. The Canard, still published today, is France's leading satiric newspaper and the most successful periodical of the twentieth century, and Douglas colorfully illuminates the mechanisms of its unique style. Following the Canard from its birth in 1915 to the eve of the Great Depression, the narrative reveals a heady mix of word play, word games, and cartoons. Over the years the journal--generally leftist, specifically antimilitarist and anti-imperialist--aimed its shots in all directions, using some stereotypes the twenty-first century might find unacceptable. But Douglas calls its humor an affirmation of life, and as such the most effective antidote to war.
