Marek Konopka, Angelika Wöllstein und Ekkehard Felder (Eds.): Bausteine einer Korpusgrammatik des Deutschen

A descriptive, consistently corpus-based academic grammar of German, aimed at a professional linguistic audience, does not yet exist. The scientists at the Leipniz Institute for the German Language are therefore working on individual components of such a grammar and publishing them in the new publication series "Bausteine einer Korpusgrammatik des Deutschen". In the spirit of open science, components of the scientific process are freely accessible and usable.

Julia Heinemann: Verwandtsein und Herrschen. Die Königinmutter Catherine de Médicis und ihre Kinder in Briefen, 1560–1589

Pendant près de trente ans, Catherine de Médicis a été une figure politique centrale de la monarchie française. Son autorité reposait sur sa position de reine mère. Julia Heinemann examine ce que la parenté signifiait pour Catherine de Médicis et ses descendants. Les lettres que s’écrivaient la mère et les enfants révèlent la parenté comme un répertoire flexible de la pensée et de l'action politiques.


Marie Luise Gotheins „Geschichte der Gartenkunst“. Das Bild des Gartens als Text
