The Polish Reason of State in Austria

The Poles in the Political Life of Austria in the Period of the Dual Monarchy (1867–1918)

Dorota Litwin-Lewandowska

The monograph describes the history of the Polish diaspora in the Habsburg monarchy in the historical, institutional, legal, political, and organizational context. In the period of the Dual Monarchy (1867–1918), the Poles who lived under the Austro-Hungarian regime sought to influence the fate of their nation and state primarily through an active involvement in parliamentary life and state administration. The study of the social and political activity of the Poles in the Austrian partition reveals their political heritage, which influenced not only the Polish idea of patriotism but also the formation of the Polish political culture rooted in the European tradition of parliamentarism and constitutionalism.

Richard Hageman

From Holland to Hollywood

Nico de Villiers, Kathryn Kalinak and Asing Walthaus

Richard Hageman (1881-1966) was celebrated during his lifetime as a conductor, pianist, vocal coach, and composer. His art songs put him solidly in the vanguard of mid-century composers and he was routinely referred to in the same context as Aaron Copland, Virgil Thomson, William Grant Still, and Erich Wolfgang Korngold. His opera Caponsacchi was the first American opera to premiere in Vienna. A conductor at the Metropolitan Opera, Hageman knew the great singers of the age, conducting Enrico Caruso and Geraldine Farrar, and accompanying Nellie Melba and Emmy Destinn. He wrote songs for John McCormack and Lotte Lehmann. By the late 1930s Hageman was composing in Hollywood, scoring westerns for John Ford and earning six Academy Award nominations. In Hollywood, he had drinks with John Wayne, rubbed shoulders with Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy, and shared the screen with Louis Armstrong and Elizabeth Taylor.

Richard Hageman: From Holland to Hollywood is the first critical biography to reconstruct Hageman’s colorful life while recreating the cultural milieu in which he flourished: opera in America during the first half of the twentieth century and film scoring in Hollywood in the heyday of the studio system. Here Hageman’s most important works are analyzed in depth for the first time, from his famous art song, "Do Not Go My Love" and his opera Caponsacchi, to his film scores such as She Wore a Yellow Ribbon and 3 Godfathers. This biography offers a compelling read for opera lovers, film fans, and American history enthusiasts alike.

This collection offers support for instructors who are concerned about students’ critical literacy abilities. Attending to critical reading to help students navigate fake news, as well as other forms of disinformation and misinformation, is the job of instructors across all disciplines, but is especially important for college English instructors because students’ reading problems play out in many and varied ways in students’ writing. The volume includes chapters that analyze the current information landscape by examining assorted approaches to the wide-ranging types of materials available on and offline and offers strategies for teaching critical reading and writing in first-year composition and beyond. The chapters herein bring fresh perspectives on a range of issues, including ways to teach critical digital reading, ecological models that help students understand fake news, and the ethical questions that inform teaching in such a climate. With each chapter offering practical, research-based advice this collection underscores not just the importance of attending to reading, particularly in the era of fake news, but precisely how to do so.

Series:

Edited by Beate Sommerfeld, Eliza Pieciul-Karmińska and Michael Düring

Die Beiträge des Bandes erkunden die Möglichkeiten und Bedingungen kultureller Diversität und Alteritätserfahrungen in der Kinder- und Jugendliteratur. Es wird der Frage nachgegangen, wie sich in kinderliterarischen Texten die Heranführung an das Fremde vollzieht und kulturelle Vielfalt eingeübt wird, oder aber die Begegnung mit anderen Kulturen kanalisiert, instrumentalisiert und ideologisiert wird. Die Beiträge diskutieren Rezeptionsbarrieren aufgrund kultureller Asymmetrien und Tabu-Themen sowie Ideologisierung der Kinder- und Jugendliteratur. Erörtert werden Purifikationen in der Übersetzung, Graphic Novels und illustrierte Kinderbücher im Kulturtransfer sowie der Status von Kinderliteratur zwischen National- und Weltliteratur.

Edited by Olivier Dard, Jens Ivo Engels and Frédéric Monier

Soucieux d’une chronologie large (1870-1945) comme d’une perspective européenne (Allemagne, Espagne, France, Italie, Norvège) et partiellement transatlantique (Canada) ce volume réunissant 16 contributions de chercheuses et chercheurs est issu d’un colloque international tenu en 2018 à la Maison de la recherche de Sorbonne Université. L’ouvrage se concentre sur les accusations de corruption lancées contre les entreprises ayant réalisé des profits élevés en temps de guerre ou de sorties de guerre. Temps forts historiques, les guerres posent aussi à l’ère des masses la question des normes publiques. Tandis que la contradiction potentielle entre gains individuels et intérêt collectif est exacerbée, des sacrifices considérables sont accomplis au nom du salut national et le patriotisme est exigé de chacun. Dans le même temps, une dynamique économique particulière voit le jour sur fond de décisions prises dans un temps accéléré, de dépenses publiques en forte hausse et d’injection d’importantes sommes d’argent dans le système. Ainsi, des gains élevés, peuvent être réalisés à faible coût dans le secteur des fournitures aux armées où les réseaux d’influence déployés pour obtenir ces marchés sont déterminants. Au sortir des guerres, et surtout après les guerres perdues, les marges bénéficiaires et les gains spéculatifs des profiteurs de guerre paraissent scandaleux aux yeux d’une majorité. Un argent d’autant plus « immoral » qu’ils a pu être gagné sur fond de pénuries et que le volume aborde en trois temps : S’enrichir en guerre, s’enrichir après-guerre : pratiques et acteurs ; Les profiteurs, des traîtres ? Dénonciations, indignations, révoltes ; Enquêter, confisquer, punir : les régulations.
