In der Expertise wird der internationale wissenschaftliche Kenntnisstand zur Effektivität verschiedener Maßnahmen des Spieler- und Jugendschutzes in Form eines systematischen Reviews zusammengestellt. Im Fokus stehen dabei die seit 2012 geltenden verhaltens- und verhältnispräventiven Maßnahmen des Glücksspielstaatsvertrages. Zudem finden Interventionen Berücksichtigung, die im internationalen Kontext Wirksamkeitsnachweise erbracht haben, bislang jedoch noch nicht in die deutsche Gesetzgebung eingeflossen sind. Aus der systematischen Zusammenstellung der empirischen Befundlage für jede einzelne Intervention ergeben sich insgesamt 16 Handlungsempfehlungen mit Relevanz für Politik, Praxis und Forschung.

Sophie Heine

While anti-European forces are still raging, pro-Europeans seem impotent and deprived of a strong, clear and convincing alternative. This book is an attempt to fill that void: reacting to the anti-European wave, it also outlines a strong criticism both of the current EU and of its advocates. Far from the Europeanist defence of the status quo, it proposes an original and radical project of European sovereignty. Its message is both critical and propositional.

This book is therefore original in its method, approach and content. It distinguishes itself from most of the literature on the subject by going beyond the narrow cleavage opposing mainstream anti- and pro- Europeans. In this general polemic, anti-European arguments usually promote a return to sovereignty at the national level, while pro-Europeans justify the existing EU configuration and its so-called "sharing" or "division" of sovereignty. Despite being clearly in favour of a deeper European integration in some fields, Sophie Heine refuses to throw away the classical concept of sovereign power. Relying on a rich literature and deploying a theoretical and strategic argument, she proposes to rehabilitate this notion at a supra-national level while avoiding the common traps of national sovereignty. This allows her to propose a redefinition of European federalism connected to her broader liberal approach.

Voices and Visions

Interviews with the Contemporary English-Language Poets of Wales

Kathryn Gray

Voices and Visions: Interviews with the Contemporary English-Language Poets of Wales captures the perspectives of key Anglophone Welsh and Wales-associated poets who have emerged in the wake of devolution and Wales’s 1997 «yes» vote – or whose career profiles and development were consolidated in its wake. The post-1997 era has been a dynamic one – notably characterised by a striking gender shift, in which women are now at the very centre of Anglophone Welsh poetics. It has also been a period in which a number of idiosyncratic younger voices have emerged and established themselves both within Wales and further afield. Compelling and candid, these interviews examine poets’ practice and preoccupations, their native and elective poetic identities, their personal insights into a changing Wales, the prevailing conditions which may have enabled them, and their place within the wider firmament of British poetics. Voices and Visions: Interviews with the Contemporary English-Language Poets of Wales is a fascinating record of play, seriousness, ambition, and local and international interests from the point of view of some of Wales’s most significant contemporary poets. Poets included: Zoë Brigley, Sarah Corbett, Jasmine Donahaye, Jonathan Edwards, Dai George, Ian Gregson, Philip Gross, Meirion Jordan, Patrick McGuinness, Pascale Petit, Deryn Rees-Jones, Gwyneth Lewis, Rhian Edwards, Zoë Skoulding, and Tiffany Atkinson.

Le présent volume s’intéresse au phénomène de la littérature interculturelle en Europe depuis les dernières décennies du siècle passé jusqu’à l’actualité. Les onze essais réunis dans ce volume analysent différentes thématiques (déplacement, exil, déracinement, changement de langue, création littéraire et société d’accueil) traitées par des auteures aux optiques très variées en fonction de leur pays d’origine, l’Europe étant leur lieu d’arrivée.

Le terme xénographie féminine désigne une vaste constellation de situations de femmes liées à l’immigration, à l’exil et au voyage volontaire, dont la caractéristique principale est la rencontre avec l’altérité sous différentes manifestations (linguistiques, sociales, culturelles, artistiques et idéologiques). Les xénographies occupent donc une place privilégiée dans la littérature européenne contemporaine, articulée autour d’une diversité d’espaces et de champs littéraires révélateurs d’une identité européenne supranationale.

Les textes sont articulés autour de trois grands axes où les auteures étudiées montrent leur apport et leur originalité à la conception des xénographies féminines. Ainsi sont objet d’étude dans le premier axe, « Entre deux mondes », Fatou Diome, Marzena Sowa, Najat El Hachmi, Laila Karrouch et Kaha Mohamed Aden. Dans le deuxième axe, « Questionnements identitaires », sont abordées Calixthe Beyala, Sema Kiliçkaya, Fatima Gallaire et Anna Moï. Dans le troisième axe, « Figures du retour », figurent Hélé Béji, Fawzia Zouari, Éléni Dikaiou, Cypris Kophidès, Allain Glykos et Nahal Tajadod.

Ce recueil collectif offre une réflexion littéraire sur la réalité plurielle de la société européenne contemporaine en tant que terre d’accueil et de dialogue interculturel et montre le dynamisme et l’intérêt des productions littéraires produites par des femmes venues d’ailleurs.

Le rappresentazioni del miracolo economico nella cultura italiana degli anni Cinquanta e Sessanta

Series:

Edited by Inge Lanslots, Lorella Martinelli, Fulvio Orsitto and Ugo Perolino

Cinquant’anni sono un segmento di tempo ragionevolmente collaudato per guardare indietro, nel tempo, senza il pericolo della nostalgia e senza il rischio di enfasi. Cinquant’anni ci separano dagli avvenimenti che gli autori di questo libro prendono in esame: il Sessantanove e poi, a ritroso, i fatti dell’anno precedente e quelli ancora prima, quando l’Italia si trova immersa dentro le trasformazioni della modernità. Nostalgia ed enfasi sono atteggiamenti nocivi allo sguardo dello studioso: la prima indulge verso un compiacimento emotivo che può finire nella retorica del come eravamo..., la seconda corre il pericolo di amplificare i dati, ingigantire gli esiti, falsificare la percezione. Entrambi i rischi si corrono quando si analizza un periodo felice e lo si mette soprattutto a confronto con un presente di minore spessore. Ma è un rischio da cui non sono stati toccati gli autori dei saggi radunati in questo volume. In nessuna pagina si avverte il sospetto del compiacimento e nemmeno l’ombra di una malinconica retrospettiva. Semmai è forte il tentativo di ricostruire un’epoca che ha i contorni del mito: ricostruirla settore per settore, dalla letteratura al cinema, dalla pubblicità alla comunicazione aziendale, dalla musica alla televisione, confermando una scelta di metodo che privilegia la dimensione politecnica del libro, il suo essere punto di convergenza di indagini sviluppate su forme e linguaggi diversi.

Now more than ever, students need support. To meet their needs, educators should encourage their students to break from the mainstream by inspecting their experiences, and therefore expressing their own values. This endeavor will lead students to make choices that are best for themselves and others. It is important to support students in both relating and connecting to society, and to have hope and joy for meeting the day full on.

Educators need to give their students the opportunity to reveal their life histories, experiences, perspectives, and expectations in ways that are themed with the educators' class curriculums. Doing so will naturally build inter-subjectivity. Increased inter-subjectivity leads to meaningful relationships and higher achievement. In turn, this will lead to stronger social relatedness and connectedness.

The purpose of Building, Maintaining, and Repairing Classroom Relationships is simple: to quickly build classroom relationships in a metaphorical, colorful, and creative way. This can be accomplished by theming curriculum with phenomenology, experience, and values clarification (PEVC) strategies. This book is set up in a concrete, sequential, and linear fashion, and is designed to meet the needs of a variety of educators and leaders. It is arranged to be browsed for quick reference for teachers who are busy and need relationship building strategies, fast.

This book covers two fields of research. The first part of the volume includes essays authored by Polish, German, Czech, and Ukrainian archeologists and historians on the genesis and unique nature of the roads whereby Christianization proceeded in Polish lands in the early Middle Ages in the context of the kindred processes underway especially from the 10th century in neighboring lands. The second part of this publication includes considerations on the politics of memory as applied to the beginnings of statehood in Poland and Kievan Rus’. Chosen examples reveal the uniqueness and the evolution of various politics of memory related to the founding myths of statehood in modern Poland, Russia, and Ukraine.

Le 15 août 1947, au moment où l’Inde obtenait son indépendance, l’Asie du Sud donnait naissance à un nouvel État, le Pakistan, disloqué entre l’extrême ouest et l’extrême est du Sous-continent. Cette partition à grande échelle s’accompagna d’un exode massif des deux côtés des nouvelles frontières, donnant lieu entre communautés hindoue, musulmane et sikhe, à des massacres d’une violence inouïe perpétrés par des populations paniquées et désorientées. On parle de près d’un million de morts et de dix à douze millions de personnes déplacées, sans parler des viols, des incendies, des pillages et des dizaines de milliers de femmes kidnappées, qui entachèrent durablement l’histoire du sous-continent indien.

Il ne s’agit pas dans cet ouvrage de s’interroger sur les causes des événements tragiques de la Partition, mais plutôt d’en examiner les conséquences à long terme et de percevoir, à travers la production littéraire et artistique massive qui a suivi les années 1947-1948 et continue à la documenter et à la discuter, l’impact majeur suscité par cette fracture historique, culturelle et sociale. Cet ouvrage, composé d’articles critiques, d’entretiens et de textes littéraires en traductions inédites, propose ainsi d’examiner la Partition comme « paradigme esthétique », en identifiant tant les récurrences de sa représentation, de ses conséquences et de sa mémoire, que la variété des genres et des modes dans laquelle cette mémoire se formule. Enfin, il s’agit d’examiner les enjeux de ces représentations, tant au niveau de la culture qu’au niveau de l’Histoire et de son écriture.

Cet ouvrage, de nature inédite en France, fait écho à de nombreux travaux entrepris ces dernières décennies en Inde et dans les universités anglophones, qui visent à reconstruire l’Histoire de l’Inde au regard d’une histoire sociale et culturelle restée longtemps inexplorée.
