>That our constructions of culture have a mental aspect, was highlighted
>in anthropology in the 1970s in the work of David Schneider and Roy
>Wagner and in political sociology in the early 1980s by Benedict
>Anderson. The study of literature has profited from this expansive
>notion of culture at a moment when its own classifications such as
>Literaturgeschichte and hermeneutics have been undergoing revision. New
>approaches to literature in an age of culture have underscored, among
>many other things, how literature is linked with cultural constructions
>such as the image (and thereby to a problematic of "seeing"), to
>natural science (and thereby to a problematic of "knowing"), and to
>philosophy (and thereby to a problematic of "awareness"). That
>literature also follows a model of culture in practice where meaning is
>imaginatively embodied, offers the new prospect of overcoming the old
>divide between mind and body, concept and performance. The goal of this
>special issue of Seminar is to reflect on the nature of the texts of
>modern culture - literary, visual and otherwise - illuminating moments
>of their construction as well as their dynamic embodiments as documents
>of culture in action.

>Submit manuscripts to Professor Tim Mehigan, Chair and Head, Department
>of Languages and Cultures, University of Otago, by 1 September 2006.
