Die Grenzen des Fremden

Konstruktionen der Fremdheit in iranischen Reiseberichten des 19. Jahrhunderts

Sara Faridzadeh

Dieses Buch handelt von Grenz- und Fremdheitskonstruktionen in iranischen Europa- und Russlandreiseberichten des 19. Jahrhunderts. Mittels einer textanalytischen Herangehensweise und anhand der theoretischen Fokussierung auf zwei Konzepte, nämlich die «kulturelle und soziale Fremdheit» und die «Grenze», versucht die Autorin die Entwicklung der iranischen Gesellschaft im Laufe des 19. Jahrhunderts zu rekonstruieren. Ziel ist es, die damalige iranische Gesellschaft und die Besonderheiten ihrer Geschichte, im Hinblick auf ihre äußeren und fremden Begegnungen mit andersartigen Kulturräumen zu erforschen. Zwar folgt die Studie primär einem soziologischen Ansatz, konnte aber den historischen Kontext der Ereignisse und die literarische Beschaffenheit der Reisetexte nicht unbeachtet lassen.

This book explores the ways in which the political and social power structures between filmmaker and protagonist are manifested in the aesthetics of documentary film. Using a synthesis of filmmaking practice and critical theories from the fields of cultural studies and political philosophy, the research devises methodological approaches to the analysis of documentaries in light of the political and material conditions of their emergence. By exploring filmmaking practice and placing it in the context of wider theories pertaining to issues of power structures and representation, it sheds light on the different aspects which must be considered when approaching the analysis of a documentary film for its ideological and political content.

The book offers new perspectives on the history of China’s late imperial period and presents a much-needed novel explanation for China’s stagnation and decline in recent centuries. It begins by questioning all the conventional wisdom on the factors behind China’s relative lack of progress and subsequent decline since the 15th century and follows with a fresh interpretation of China’s past. The new vantage points provide insights into China’s resurgence in recent decades and its significance for other nations. The book also makes projections on the general direction that China’s future evolution is likely to take with respect to its market economy, rule of law and representative institutions.

The author aims to deepen international understanding of China’s past and present which will hopefully facilitate the development of more productive relationships between China and other nations. The book is written so that it appeals to students, academics as well as the general public and whoever is interested in gaining a better understanding of China’s rapid rise today. The book is relevant to third and fourth year undergraduate courses in history, economics, international relations, law and political science. It can be used as a text book for upper class core or elective courses in history and economics and as a reference book for upper class courses in international relations, law and political science. It can also serve as a reference book for graduate students in the above disciplines.

Yannic Wiegold

Probleme im Rechtschreiben gehen häufig einher mit Auffälligkeiten im Verhalten von Kindern und Jugendlichen, wie zum Beispiel Aufmerksamkeitsproblemen, Hausaufgabenkonflikten, depressiven Verstimmungen oder aggressiven Verhaltensweisen. In dieser Untersuchung wurden die Eltern von Lernenden mit Rechtschreibproblemen nach deren Verhalten befragt. Als Fragebögen wurden die Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) und die Deutsche Schulalter-Formen der Child Behavior Checklist eingesetzt.

Employer branding is a concept which was introduced in 1996 and is defined as «the package of functional, economic and psychological benefits provided by employment, and identified with the employing company» (Amber & Barrow, 1996).

Even though the concept was originally introduced as a marketing term, latterly the employer branding terminology has entered the human resource management world. Organizations have to work on the desired level of employer branding internally and also externally to achieve efficiency and effectiveness. Organizations focused mostly on attracting and recruiting talents in a wide range of competitive environment which is influenced by a «war for talents». Employer branding is also known as an effective mechanism which is related to the internal value perceptions on the organizations.

The Higher Education industry, which is one of the biggest service industries in the world, has to give importance to the term «employer branding» for external and also internal stakeholders. Since the idea of the universities has changed, it forces universities to be one of the growth industries. This growth generates some important and critical challenges on working conditions of academics and also administrative personnel in higher education institutions (HEIs).

The Little Qanun of Ibn Sina

Little Model of the Great Qanun

Kadircan Hidir Keskinbora

Ibn Sina wrote many books on various scientific branches, many of which are on philosophy, religion, music, medicine, astronomy, physics, and natural sciences. Some sources state that the number of books he has written is over 240; 153 of these have been discovered. Among his valuable books, the two most well-known books are «al-Shifa», which deals mostly with philosophy, and the five-volume «al-Qānūn Fī al-Tibb», which is a complete medical encyclopedia. The Little Qanun is the model of «al-Qānūn». The idea of publishing this book struck the author’s mind when he thoroughly dealt with Avicenna’s views and thoughts. It is hard to imagine such discoveries were generated more than one thousand years ago.

After the Fall

On the Writings of Czesław Miłosz

Series:

Tomasz Garbol

Tomasz Garbol’s book reconstructs Czesław Miłosz’s poetic vision of the world after the Fall. The entry point to this approach is the conviction about the ambivalence of previous interpretations of Miłosz’s works, especially about his bipolar poetic worldview (his intellectual and existential division between pessimism and ecstasy) and his understanding of the consequences of the Fall (reversible or fatalistic). The book is a literary studies take on the relationship between literature and religion. The main direction is that Miłosz’s main need in art comes from his yearning for contact with the meaning of reality, which he seeks in the activity of poetic imagination.
