Grenzen, ihre Überschreitung, ihre Auflösung und ihre Wiederherstellung sind ein bisher nicht systematisch erforschtes Schlüsselkonzept für das Verständnis romantischer Literatur. Diese semiotisch-komparatistische Grundsatzstudie analysiert über drei Kulturräume hinweg vergleichend eine Vielfalt heterogener literarischer Entgrenzungsphänomene in der Romantik und entwickelt auf der foundation der romantischen Zeichentheorie ein Modell für die examine transepochaler Entgrenzungsphänomene. Dabei geht sie über bekannte Konzepte des paradoxen Subjekts hinaus, indem Entgrenzung als Interdependenz von Subjekt, Raum und Zeichen umfassend in detaillierten Lektüren literarischer Texte aus Deutschland, den united states und Großbritannien sowie in theoretischen Exkursen untersucht wird - von Novalis und Coleridge über Melville bis hin zu Deleuze und Guattari. Die Arbeit ist somit nicht nur ein Beitrag zur Romantikforschung, sondern lotet auch die methodologischen Möglichkeiten derselben neu aus. Die Studie wurde 2012 mit dem von der Ernst-Reuter-Gesellschaft der Freunde, Förderer und Ehemaligen der Freien Universität Berlin e.V. gestifteten Ernst-Reuter-Preis als herausragende und zukunftsweisende Promotionsarbeit ausgezeichnet. obstacles represent a key idea in Romanticism: their transgression, their removal, but additionally their reconstruction. through interpreting the triad of signal, topic, and area, this examine presents a accomplished research of limitations in German, English, and American Romanticism. Its trans-epochal process unearths a shared dynamic of a multiplicity of heterogeneous boundary phenomena starting from the past due 18th century to postmodern Romantic texts and constructs a version for the exam of limits: a concept of a-limitation. The identified idea of the transgressive Romantic topic is built-in into this triadic version whose primordial website of a-limitation, in spite of the fact that, is the semiotics of Romanticism. With an inventive theoretical layout that enables the reader to survey readings of person texts in addition to broader theoretical frameworks, "Liminal Semiotics" bargains a brand new viewpoint on various literary texts and theories starting from Novalis and Coleridge to Melville and eventually to Deleuze and Guattari. The thesis used to be presented the Ernst-Reuter-Prize 2012 for impressive dissertations at Freie Universität Berlin.
