Abstract:

This volume presents a ground-breaking collection of essays inspired by the
work of linguist, anthropologist and poet Paul Friedrich. The core of this
collection is the dramatic and creative connection between language and
culture: linguaculture. Each essay relates language at its most technical
to culture in its most intangible forms.

The work represented here is based upon long-term immersion in multiple
dimensions of culture, from the hallowed interiors of intellectual life to
everyday encounters and observations. Balance between these two
perspectives - objective and analytical systematicity on the one hand and
human affect and individuality on the other - unify these works. Another
specific bond is a hallmark of Paul Friedrich's method: a faithfully
microscopic eye for detail combined with a panoramic vision of the cultural
context as a whole. In keeping with Paul Friedrich's intellectual legacy,
this collection is not grounded in, nor contained by, any single academic
discipline. It is, rather, informed by a sensibility to the complex and
multilayered interplay of the domains of human thought, perception and
activity that we conventionally label "language" and "culture." Among the
contributors to this volume are specialists in comparative literature,
Slavic studies and Classics; poets, translators, literary critics, a
professional singer and an avant-garde painter.
