Einführung: Gegenwelten
The articles in this special issue share a common investigative approach to various historical phenomena in Germany, Poland and Britain in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries: they explore the emergence, institutionalization and disappearance of counterworlds. Counterworlds are defined as spaces of action constituting a distinctive world-view which deviates from or contests hegemonic social or political structures. Drawing on related sociological concepts such as social worlds (Strauss), subcultures (Williams) and counter-cultural spaces (Löw), this special issue, with its four case studies, introduces and explains the concept of the counterworld as an analytical tool.
