Two books co-edited by Stefan Willer

Stefan Willer, Secretary of the ICLA theory committee, has co-edited two collective volumes: Oper und Film (Opera and Film), with co-editors Arne Stollberg, Stephan Ahrens, and Jörg Königsdorf; and Zukunftssicherung (Insuring the Future), with co-editors Johannes Becker, Benjamin Bühler, and Sandra Pravica. Published with Edition text+kritik, the former volume presents the complex liaison between opera and film from Puccini’s acknowledgment of film to the television opera of today. And the latter book, which appeared with Transcript Verlag, tackles the political and cultural problematics of the insurance of the future.

Horn & Bergthaller: The Anthropocene

Eva Horn, former member of the ICLA theory committee, and Hannes Bergthaller have written the book The Anthropocene: Key Issues for the Humanities. The book is an introduction to the attempts that have been made to take the measure of the Anthropocene, and explores the main scientific and philosophical problems of that undertaking. Published by Routledge, this is the English-language edition of Bergthaller and Horn’s book Anthropozän zur Einführung, which is forthcoming with Junius Verlag.
