The current DFG-funded project by Joanna Moszczyńska, "Literary Journalism in the Cold War: Affective Structures of Transperipheral Solidarity in Images of Thought between Ryszard Kapuściński and Gabriel García Márquez", explores aesthetic and socio-politically oriented interconnections and resonances between the work of Ryszard Kapuściński and Gabriel García Márquez in the context of the 20th century conflict between the USA and the Soviet Union: the Cold War. The project locates this conflict in its transnational dimension, taking into consideration its significant political, cultural, social, and ideological effects on the satellite countries of the Soviet Union as well as on the Global South. The two authors became contemporary witnesses of the global Cold War and addressed it primarily in literary-journalistic texts. García Marquez's documentary narratives on the countries of the Eastern Bloc and Kapuściński’s reportages and reflexions on Latin America convey ideas about socialism(s) and are involved in the affective processing of experience through the representation of socialist spaces and the encounter with the Other. By elaborating a philological and cultural studies approach to socialist feelings, following “structures of feeling” by Raymond Williams (1977), the project focuses on images of thought (Denkbilder) that are affectively attuned to lived historical moments. It further aims to uncover certain affinities – thematic, structural, generic – between the works of the two authors as they raise social and political issues relevant to the Cold War period. The project contributes to the transnational history, or historie croisée, of the intellectual Left as well as to literary genre studies (crónica, reportaż, literary/narrative journalism).
The project is aligned with an interdisciplinary and transregional research agenda, which is one of the main focal points at the University of Regensburg represented by DIMAS and CITAS, as well as the European-American focus of the Leibniz ScienceCampus. The methodological approaches of cultural studies and regional studies elaborated here make it possible, with a comparative transnational awareness and an intercultural sensitivity, to examine the aesthetic and formal developments in the hybrid field of literary journalism as well as the forms of coexistence, or conviviality (Costa 2019) in the 20th century, marked by inequalities, violent politics and idealistic hopes and disappointments, in a global perspective that includes Eastern Europe and Latin America.
