Book Information


Title: Geschichte - Kunst - Nation
Subtitle: Die sprachliche Konstituierung einer 'deutschen' Kunstgeschichte aus diskursanalytischer Sicht
Written By: Marcus Müller

[History - Art - Nation. Discursive Construction of 'German' History of Arts]

Working from a discourse analysis perspective, Müller examines how a
national art history was constituted through its linguistic construction
and transmission. The study demonstrates how German art history was
'manufactured' through language, particularly in the 19th and 20th
centuries. The study operates at the interface between text linguistics,
the history of concepts and the history of words and makes an important
contribution to the history of national consciousness.
