Kinder retten. Biopolitik in Stifters Erzählung "Der Waldgänger"


Giuriato, Davide (2015). Kinder retten. Biopolitik in Stifters Erzählung "Der Waldgänger". Internationales Archiv für Sozialgeschichte der deutschen Literatur, 40(2):441-458.

Abstract

Published in 1846, Der Waldgänger is the text in Stifter’s work that not only explores the figure of the child programmatically but does so with a deeply disturbing radicalness. This is nothing less than a key text, allowing an analytical approach to various aspects of the problematic of childhood. Up until now, it has not been taken into account that, with the motif of childlessness, Der Waldgänger relates to sociopolitical challenges of the time. In specific, the considerations of procreation and reproduction link into modern biopower discourse and practice (M. Foucault). Stifter thus champions a politics of saving children that had begun to emerge at the end of the 18th century.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
