Edited by Maria B. Hopkins and Rachel Bailey Jones

Centers for teaching and learning all face the same dilemma: In a context where faculty are not required to partake in our services, how do we provide transformative learning experiences to which faculty willingly give their limited time? The answer, Maria B. Hopkins and Rachel Bailey Jones propose, is to move away from a workshop model of faculty development and toward a model that supports the kinds of connections among faculty that lead to self-sustaining growth and development. This edited book provides a breadth of innovative alternatives to fixed-schedule faculty development workshops that faculty are rarely attending due to the increasing complexity of their professional lives. The audience for this book is higher education administrators, faculty, and staff responsible for faculty development related to teaching and learning. Each chapter provides a detailed description of a faculty development initiative in practice at our respective institutions that provide opportunities for creativity, adaptability, and collaboration among faculty. Public, private, and community colleges, small and large, research-focused and teaching-focused institutions are represented. The editors have taken on this project because this is the resource they wish they had when they began their work as directors of the teaching lab at their institution.

Helena Dettmer

In his 1995 Teubner edition, J. B. Hall separates Tristia 1.5, 1.9, 3.4, 4.4, 5.2, and 5.7 into two poems. One reviewer of Hall’s edition is highly critical of the editor for not justifying the separation of these poems despite the fact the divisions have manuscript support. Because of the sorry state of the textual transmission of Ovid's five books of Tristia, it is sometimes difficult to determine the beginning and end of an individual poem if that poem resumes thematically and verbally where the previous poem concludes. The aim of this study is to show that definitive evidence can be offered to justify division of these six elegies into two poems. Structure combined with theme serves as an analytical tool that defines the beginning and end of the twelve literary pieces under consideration and highlights their artistry. Resolution of the issue of unity enhances our interpretation of the independent poems and our understanding of the complex interplay among poems within each poetry-book. The careful and often brilliant craftsmanship of the poems and of the books in which they appear reaffirms that Ovid’s repeated deprecation of the quality of his literary work composed during his period of exile in the Black Sea region is simply a pose to attract sympathy and support from his Roman audience.

The Language of Feminine Duty

Articulating Gender, Culture, and Covert Policy in Modern Japan

Rika Saito

This book examines "women’s speech" as a policy of constructs expressed in official and unofficial discourse from the 1880s to the 1920s in Japan. It analyzes specific language policies that were incorporated through governmental gender policy to perpetuate "women’s speech," asymmetrical gendered speech styles and concepts in the Japanese language. It also seeks to develop cross-cultural approaches to language and gender theories initiated in the United States and Europe by proposing new concepts of language policy. This work contributes to ongoing interdisciplinary scholarship on gender, language, and policy by reconsidering the relationship between the Japanese "national language" and "women’s speech."

Las revoluciones hispánicas y la historiografía contemporánea

Historia de las ideas, liberalismo e Ilustración en el mundo hispánico durante la Era de las revoluciones

Series:

Roberto Breña

La independencia de las Trece Colonias y la Revolución Francesa han ocupado un lugar privilegiado en el estudio de la Era de las revoluciones. Los nueve capítulos de este libro plantean colocar a la revolución liberal española, al liberalismo hispánico y a las independencias hispanoamericanas en un lugar destacado en el estudio de dicha era. Esto lo hace el autor mediante un análisis de varios aspectos políticos e intelectuales del mundo hispánico del primer cuarto del siglo XIX que muestran su riqueza, su peculiaridad, su complejidad y sus aportaciones a la historia de las ideas en Occidente. En resumen, el libro que el lector tiene en sus manos proporciona argumentos para concluir que no se puede seguir ignorando a las revoluciones hispánicas cuando se escribe historia política o historia intelectual sobre la Era de las revoluciones.

Fuera de algunos especialistas, muy pocas personas saben que el término "liberal" con una connotación política surgió en el mundo hispánico al final de la primera década del siglo XIX. Concretamente, en las Cortes de Cádiz, una asamblea de representantes españoles e hispanoamericanos que se reunieron en ese puerto español entre 1810 y 1814. Esa asamblea bi-continental y la constitución que elaboraron (la Constitución de Cádiz o Constitución de 1812) consideraron como ciudadanos a los indígenas de América y el documento era el más abierto que hasta entonces se había redactado en términos de participación electoral. Además, tuvo repercusiones sobre varias regiones italianas, Portugal, Rusia y Noruega, así como, por supuesto, sobre los territorios hispanoamericanos, los cuales pronto extendieron la revolución hispánica al Nuevo Continente y optaron por una vía propia hacia la modernidad política que surgió en Occidente durante la Era de las revoluciones.

Le retour de la puissance céréalière russe

Sociologie des marchés du blé 2000-2018

Series:

Caroline Dufy

Fondement de la civilisation occidentale, le blé est l’une des céréales les plus échangées au monde. Sa part prépondérante dans l’alimentation humaine lui confère le statut de denrée stratégique. La Russie en a fait un instrument de sa reconquête des marchés céréaliers, en se hissant, sur des marchés mondiaux instables, au rang de concurrent agricole majeur pour l’Europe. La renaissance de la puissance agricole russe s’appuie également sur d’autres produits, tels que le lait, la viande, ou les oléagineux. Comment s’est opérée cette mondialisation agricole, quels en sont les acteurs et les conditions ? Telles sont les questions centrales abordées par cet ouvrage.

Depuis les années 2000, des évolutions notables ont marqué le monde agricole russe, au premier rang desquelles l’adhésion du pays à l’Organisation Mondiale du Commerce et l’adoption de l’embargo sur les produits alimentaires occidentaux décidé dans le sillage de la crise ukrainienne. Cet ouvrage invite le lecteur au cœur de cette mutation du monde céréalier en suivant ceux qui de près ou de plus loin font les marchés céréaliers : agriculteurs, négociants, syndicalistes agricoles, experts agricoles, mais aussi élus locaux et éleveurs et industriels. Il écoute leurs voix, montre leur travail, donne à voir leurs intérêts et leurs rationalités.

La démarche adoptée se situe au croisement de plusieurs mondes : le monde rural, la politique et le commerce international. Elle fait dialoguer différentes échelles : celle des politiques de l’Etat, avec celle des territoires et celles des rationalités productives individuelles. Ce décryptage permet de restituer des cohérences au-delà des paradoxes apparents entre stratégie volontariste de sécurité alimentaire, politique des contre sanctions et plaidoyer pour le retour de la puissance céréalière.

Le suivi patient de la marchandise blé, donne ainsi à comprendre les évolutions de valeurs et les priorités sociales, les tensions que font naître la définition d’un bien commun et des aléas qui l’accompagnent.

Parables of Freedom and Narrative Logics

Positions and Presuppositions in Science Fiction and Utopianism

Series:

Darko Suvin

Edited by Eric Smith

This major two-volume collection presents Darko Suvin’s critical meditations on science fiction and utopia from the late 1960s through the early years of the new millennium, excluding only the landmark monographs Metamorphoses of Science Fiction, Victorian Science Fiction, and Defined by a Hollow. From essential programmatic statements charting the parabolic logic of science fiction and establishing the parameters of a theoretically supple and rigorously historical SF criticism to confrontations with both a postmodernist abdication of politics and a «neutral» sociology of literature, these writings reflect the evolving thought of the preeminent contemporary theorist of science fiction.  Underpinned by a method of heretical cognition and the steadfast insistence of utopian possibility, the varied essays, interviews, poems, and polemics presented here—encompassing four decades of sustained thought on the topic—offer up the affirmation of freedom as the truest horizon of science fiction.

Religion, Economics, and Politics in FATA-KP

The Enduring Challenges of Merged Tribal Districts in Northwestern Pakistan

Series:

Edited by Tahir I. Shad and Syed Hussain Shaheed Soherwordi

This book provides a unique Pakistani perspective and understanding of a region that has not been studied extensively to date. Pakistan’s Frontier Region has been at the forefront of the War on Terror since 2001. The Federally Administered Tribal Agencies (now known as merged Tribal Districts) are a critical geostrategic area for Pakistan. This work highlights key economic, political, and religious issues in the FATA-KP region in order to identify means to eradicate ongoing conflicts and integrate the region within mainstream Pakistani society. This project proposes a series of phased economic development reforms that can guide FATA’s transition as an integrated territory within the rest of Pakistan. These reforms can and should encourage dimensions of indigenous economic practices, women’s empowerment, the education system, food security, subsistence agriculture, and transportation and communication infrastructure where possible. These improvements can be implemented in 10+ year plans designed to organize a committed effort to develop and integrate FATA with the rest of Pakistan.

En este libro presentamos una novedosa taxonomía para la categorización de los errores ortográficos en zonas de contacto lingüístico. La taxonomía ha sido diseñada como resultado de la combinación del análisis contrastivo entre las ortografías del inglés y del español con los datos empíricos obtenidos mediante la administración de cuestionarios de disponibilidad léxica en la comunidad de habla de Gibraltar, donde el inglés y el español se encuentran en contacto. El libro representa el primer trabajo dedicado exclusivamente a la manifestación de dicho contacto en la ortografía en ambas lenguas de sus hablantes e indaga sobre las causas de los errores, de acuerdo con un enfoque explicativo y experimental en el ámbito de la sociolingüística y la lingüística aplicada a la enseñanza de lenguas.

Schieds- und Mediationsklauseln in Verfügungen von Todes wegen

Die letztwillige Schiedsklausel im System erbrechtlicher Optionsmodelle Die letztwillige Mediationsklausel als causa des Anspruches auf Mitwirkung an einer Mediation

Series:

Beatrix Wolfer

Konflikte im Zusammenhang mit dem Themenkomplex Erben und Vererben sind unumgänglich und Alltag in der Praxis des erbrechtlich tätigen Anwalts. Für Erblasser kann sich nun die Frage stellen, ob die Aufnahme einer Schieds- oder Mediationsklausel in die geplante Verfügung von Todes wegen die Entstehung von Konflikten vermeiden oder reduzieren kann. Ebenso ist fraglich, ob die Erben oder Vermächtnisnehmer überhaupt verpflichtet werden können ihren erbrechtlichen Streit durch ein Schieds- oder Mediationsverfahren beilegen zu müssen. Bei der Beantwortung dieser Fragen muss zuerst der erbrechtliche Konflikt näher betrachtet werden und anschließend versucht werden, die Schieds- und Mediationsklausel rechtsdogmatisch einzuordnen. Nur so ist es möglich, diese im System des Erbrechts zu platzieren und die Fragen nach der Rechtswirksamkeit einer letztwilligen Schieds- oder Mediationsklausel zu beantworten.
