Unknown God, Known in His Activities

Incomprehensibility of God during the Trinitarian Controversy of the 4th Century

Series:

Tomasz Stępień and Karolina Kochańczyk-Bonińska

What can man know about God? This question became one of the main problems during the 4th-century Trinitarian controversy, which is the focus of this book. Especially during the second phase of the conflict, the claims of Anomean Eunomius caused an emphatic response of Orthodox writers, mainly Basil of Caesarea and Gregory of Nyssa. Eunomius formulated two ways of theology to show that we can know both the substance (ousia) and activities (energeiai) of God. The Orthodox Fathers demonstrated that we can know only the external activities of God, while the essence is entirely incomprehensible. Therefore the 4th-century discussion on whether the Father and the Son are of the same substance was the turning point in the development of negative theology and shaping the Christian conception of God.

At the origins of Classical opera

Carlo Goldoni and the «dramma giocoso per musica»

Series:

Pervinca Rista

Venetian playwright and pioneer of modern theatre Carlo Goldoni (1707-1793) led a ‘double life’ as a librettist, authoring nearly as many libretti as comedies- libretti which, born from the same mind and the same hand that brought forth his famous, and famously controversial, overhaul of the practices of comic theatre, could not but push the limits of the standing tradition to open a new chapter in opera history. Goldoni became one of the first to give shape to the dramma giocoso per musica, an innovative, realistic, and enduring new genre with intimate connections to prose comedy that met with overwhelming international success, becoming the foundation for the works of future generations, including W. A. Mozart and his Italian librettist Lorenzo da Ponte. Perhaps because of his stature and influence as a comic playwright, Goldoni has rarely been considered as an innovator in the musical sphere. This study aims to shed new light on his primary role in the evolution of Classical opera, and on the legacy of his innovations in the European musical tradition.

In This Together

Teachers' Experiences with Transnational, Telecollaborative Language Learning Projects

Series:

Edited by Melinda Ann Dooly Owenby and Robert O'Dowd

This book provides a nexus between research and practice through teachers’ narratives of their experiences with telecollaboration. The book begins with a chapter outlining the pedagogical and theoretical underpinnings of telecollaboration (also known as Virtual Exchange), followed by eight chapters that explain telecollaborative project design, materials and activities as well as frank discussions of obstacles met and resolved during the project implementation. The projects described in the volume serve as excellent examples for any teacher or education stakeholder interested in setting up their own telecollaborative exchange.

Tying Micro and Macro

What Fills up the Sociological Vacuum?

Series:

Mikolaj Pawlak

This study critically discusses the thesis on the sociological vacuum formulated by Stefan Nowak. The author’s aim is to refute the claim that the sociological vacuum is relevant for major social processes occurring in Poland. He presents the sociological vacuum in the context of the debate on micro and macro levels and discusses how the theory of fields and social network analysis is useful to reconcile the micro-macro divide. The book considers the uses of the sociological vacuum in explaining such phenomena as the Solidarność social movement, civil society, social capital, and democracy. In the empirical part, the author confronts the data on identifications with the data on relations and claims that the vacuum is not in the society but it in sociology.

De 0 à 1 ou l’heure de l’informatique à l’école

Actes du colloque Didapro 7 – DidaSTIC

Edited by Gabriel Parriaux, Jean-Philippe Pellet, Georges-Louis Baron, Eric Bruillard and Vassilis Komis

Depuis que l’informatique est un objet d’enseignement–apprentissage, les acteurs de la recherche se rencontrent régulièrement autour des dilemmes que suscite cet objet. C’est à ce titre que, depuis 1988, les colloques de didactique de l’informatique, puis le colloque Didapro – DidaSTIC, explorent ce domaine.

Cet ouvrage constitue les actes de l’édition 2018 tenue à la Haute école pédagogique du canton de Vaud à Lausanne et présente les recherches les plus récentes dans le domaine, classifiées en trois grandes thématiques.

Au cœur de la discipline Informatique – rassemble les articles qui portent une réflexion sur les fondements de la discipline informatique, ce qui lui donne sens, la délimite ainsi que sur l’organisation de ses concepts.

Formation des enseignant·e·s et enjeux institutionnels – réunit les recherches centrées sur les questions cruciales de formation des enseignant·e·s à l’enseignement de l’informatique ou présentant la situation propre à un pays.

Quels enseignements, avec quels outils ? – fédère les études de dispositifs d’enseignement, d’outils et d’usages innovants pour l’apprentissage de l’informatique aux différents niveaux de la scolarité.

Gatewatching and News Curation

Journalism, Social Media, and the Public Sphere

Series:

Axel Bruns

Gatewatching and News Curation: Journalism, Social Media, and the Public Sphere documents an emerging news media environment that is characterised by an increasingly networked and social structure. In this environment, professional journalists and non-professional news users alike are increasingly cast in the role of gatewatcher and news curator, and sometimes accept these roles with considerable enthusiasm. A growing part of their everyday activities takes place within the spaces operated by the major social media providers, where platform features outside of their control affect how they can post, find, access, share, curate, and otherwise engage with news, rumours, analysis, comments, opinion, and related forms of information.

If in the current social media environment the majority of users are engaged in sharing news; if the networked structure of these platforms means that users observe and learn from each other’s sharing practices; if these practices result in the potential for widespread serendipitous news discovery; and if such news discovery is now overtaking search engines as the major driver of traffic to news sites—then gatewatching and news curation are no longer practiced only by citizen journalists, and it becomes important to fully understand the typical motivations, practices, and consequences of habitual news sharing through social media platforms.

Professional journalism and news media have yet to fully come to terms with these changes. The first wave of citizen media was normalised into professional journalistic practices—but this book argues that what we are observing in the present context instead is the normalisation of professional journalism into social media.

Limit Experiences

A Study of Twentieth-Century Forms of Representation

Series:

Jacek Leociak

In his work Limit Experiences, Jacek Leociak addresses questions that are fundamental to the twentieth-century experience: How can we represent such traumatic events as the Holocaust? Was Lyotard correct when he claimed that reality had succumbed to the gas chambers? How can we describe the «indescribable»? Moving seamlessly through such topics as the destruction of the Warsaw Ghetto, the carpet bombing of Dresden, and Jews left for dead in the Nazi execution pits who miraculously «exited the grave» alive, Professor Leociak succeeds in offering readers a profound representation of twentieth-century limit experiences by embedding them in a broad array of sources and building around them a rich historical context.

Timur Kibirovs dichterisches Werk in seiner Entwicklung (1979–2009)

Ringen um Werte in einer Zeit der Umbrüche

Series:

Marion Rutz

Ein Paradigmenwechsel Mitte der 1990er Jahre hat in der Slavistik die Gegenwartsliteratur als Thema etabliert, allerdings betraf er vor allem die postmoderne Prosa. Die Dichtung (Lyrik) erfuhr lange Zeit wenig Aufmerksamkeit. Diese Arbeit stellt einen der wichtigsten russischen Dichter der letzten Jahrzehnte vor: Timur Kibirov (*1955). Kibirovs Verstexte sind ein Seismograph der gesellschaftlichen Prozesse im spät- und postsowjetischen Russland. Immer wieder fragen sie nach moralischen, ästhetischen und religiösen Werten. Sie suchen nach einem Mittelweg zwischen den Extremen der ideologischen Verfestigung und des postmodernen Relativismus, ob sie in konzeptualistischer Manier sowjetische Ideologie dekonstruieren oder postmodern für Moral und Glauben agitieren.
