Off Campus: Seggau School of Thought 2
The second volume of the Off Campus: Seggau School of Thought publication series has found its purpose in bringing together articles of young scholars and lecturers of international universities in order to – in the sense of the title – transgress disciplinary as well as cultural and linguistic boundaries. Transformation, transgressions, and trust are the prevailing notions that this book emphasizes on, outlining the concepts of what it means to incorporate transformative aspects into transgressive processes. The core essence of structural change, and the critical reflection of the status quo, in this sense, is based on trust. The thirteen articles in this publication, as diverse as they may seem due to their interdisciplinary character, have in common a strong emphasis on a metaphorical and actual crossing and transcending that was deliberately sought by the authors in order to highlight the volume’s theme. Their shedding light on the perspectives of trust, and what it means to initiate transformations and become aware of the liminality of concepts is expressed in fields as diverse as a literary analysis of body and place, transgressive forms of feminism, expressions of transgression through artistic interventions, linguistic heritage as a core aspect of the culturally and socially ‘liminal’ individual, the political notion of positive transgressions, and radical concepts of change and transformation in socio-economic policy-making.
