Exposé

In the field of literary and cultural studies, the understanding of decadence is usually confined to aesthetic phenomena from Baudelaire to the European fin-de-siècle. The present interdisciplinary anthology, with contributions by Canadian, German, Italian, and Spanish scholars, aims to bridge the gap between decadence as it is traditionally understood in literary and cultural studies and its relevance to current phenomena. The chapters focus on historical and philosophical perspectives, discussions in the fields of cultural and language politics, literary texts, and movies from Europe and America since 1945.
