Aḥmad Fāris aš-Šidyāq (ca. 1804-1887) gilt als einer der bedeutendsten arabischen Intellektuellen des 19. Jahrhunderts, dessen Hauptwerk as-Sāq ʿalā as-sāq fī mā huwa al-Fāriyāq (Bein über Bein. Was es heißt, al-Fāriyāq zu sein) 1855 in Paris veröffentlicht wurde. Diese literatur- und kulturwissenschaftlichen Studie untersucht aš-Šidyāqs literarische Lexikographie. Sie entwickelt dazu eigenes Instrumentarium zur Analyse von lexikographisch-literarischen Wortlisten, um erstmals die epistemisch-ästhetische „Entblößung der Wörter“ bei aš-Šidyāq und in der arabischen Literatur sichtbar und verständlich zu machen. Im Kontext einer „Rückkehr zur Philologie“ (Edward Said) entdeckt diese Studie aš-Šidyāqs Sprachbetrachtungen als eine radikale Kultur- und Gesellschaftskritik, die ein gänzlich neues Licht auf die Nahḍa, die arabische Erneuerungsbewegung zu Beginn der Moderne, wirft.

Series Description

Literatures in Context is a peer-reviewed book series devoted to Near Eastern and North African literatures. The editors want the title of the series to be understood programmatically. They presuppose a concept of world literature that includes Near Eastern and North African literatures. What is more, they assume that literatures are in many ways marked by intertextuality, that they constitute readings of extremely diverse earlier texts, and that they are posited within a field of tensions, much broader than their respective national language. For the earlier eras of Near Eastern and North African literatures, this field of tensions geographically covers the regions of the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean and Asia Minor. In modern times, it has become a space of interaction that has long since included “global” Western literatures (and realities). This does not imply that the modern Near Eastern and North African literatures have severed themselves from their predecessors. Instead it is precisely the tension between different sets of references in modern Near Eastern and North African literatures, or their “local historical context”, which is a great part of their attraction, that remains a crucial field of research for the modern scholar.
