Mehrsprachigkeit ist einerseits Phänomen, andererseits Forschungsfeld und als Zeichen fortschreitender gesellschaftlicher Diversifizierung in aller Munde. Der vorliegende Band setzt die Mehrsprachigkeit in eine Beziehung zur interkulturellen Kommunikation und zur Sprachvermittlung aus einer Perspektive des Deutschen als Fremdsprache und Zweitsprache. Die Beiträge nehmen unterschiedliche Institutionen der Bildung in den Blick und betrachten besondere Formen und Herausforderungen des Spracherwerbs für Fremd-, Zweit- und Herkunftssprachenlerner_innen. Dabei muss systematisch auch die Rolle kultureller Faktoren betrachtet werden. Insofern ist eine Besonderheit des Bandes, dass die Außenperspektive auf das Deutsche als Gegenstand des Sprach- und Kulturlernens in zahlreichen Beiträgen berücksichtigt wird.

Making the Best of a Bad Job

Representations of Disability, Gender and Old Age in the Novels of Samuel Beckett

Series:

Manuel Barberá López

This book explores the representations of disability, gender and old age in the novels of Samuel Beckett. His works go against the foundations of Western thought, which has been traditionally focused on success, clarity, learning and ability, while Beckett chose to focus on failure, confusion, decay and impotence. This study purports to show the central importance of the three categories chosen for the general understanding of the writer’s work. It constitutes an attempt to provide a gendered interpretation of Beckett’s protagonists, who are increasingly unable to reason, talk or move properly, extremely old and do not fit hegemonic models of masculinity. Beckett, who denies his own ability as an author to understand and explain a chaotic world, chooses these disabled, old men as the ultimate representatives of the human condition and the best models to transmit his worldview. This is a book combining different perspectives and getting to conclusions regarding power structures which are particularly interesting for researchers or students taking courses on the dialectics of alterity, masculinities studies or new readings of Samuel Beckett’s works. The author’s research is based on the main arguments of feminist thought, masculinities studies, disability studies, ageing studies and recent work on Beckett. The ultimate goal of such interdisciplinary approach is to show how different systems of oppression work in similar ways and to draw the political implications of Beckett’s literary choices, in terms of visibility and solidarity.

The Pleasure in/of the Text

About the Joys and Perversities of Reading

Series:

Edited by Fabien Arribert-Narce, Endo Fuhito and Kamila Pawlikowska

Reading is a peculiar kind of experience. Although its practice and theory have a very long tradition, the question of aesthetic pleasure is as perplexing as ever. Why do we read? What exactly thrills us in the text? One of the most prominent scholars having addressed these questions in the twentieth century is undeniably Roland Barthes, who distinguished between the «ordinary» pleasure of reading and bliss (jouissance), a delight so profound that it cannot be expressed in words. Taking his work as a central reference, and revisiting some of his seminal publications on the subject such as Empire of Signs (1970) and The Pleasure of the Text (1973), this collection of essays adopts a similar interdisciplinary approach to explore a broad range of themes and issues related to the notion of readerly enjoyment, between form and content, emotion and reason, and escapist and knowledge-seeking responses to the text: how do literary and ideological pleasures intersect? In what ways do perversions, madness or even fatigue contribute to the pleasure of the text? How do writing and signs, sense and significance, but also image and text interact in the intermedial process of reading? How can paratexts – i.e. the margins of the text, including footnotes – and metatexts play a part in the reader’s enjoyment?

Die Beschränkung der Möglichkeit, die eigene Forderung durch eine Aufrechnung nach §§ 387 ff. BGB durchzusetzen und die fremde Forderung zu tilgen, bedeutet einen Eingriff in die Gestaltungs- und Durchsetzungsmöglichkeiten der Rechte für die Beteiligten. Der Autor befasst sich mit der Frage, inwieweit die grundgesetzlich garantierte Privatautonomie in der Form der Vertragsfreiheit bei der inhaltlichen Ausgestaltung einer Aufrechnungsbeschränkung durch gesetzliche Verbote wie § 134, § 138, § 242, § 556b und §§ 307 ff. BGB eingeschränkt ist. Unter Beachtung der europarechtlichen Vorgaben untersucht er die Grenzbereiche für den Individualvertrag und Formularvertrag und entwickelt für konkrete Fallgruppen rechtskonforme Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten.

Roadmap to a successful PhD in Business & management and the social sciences

The definitive guide for postgraduate researchers

Glauco De Vita, Jason Begley and David Bowen

This book provides the most comprehensive roadmap to a successful PhD completion, thus offering a useful guide for aspiring and existing doctoral students in business and management disciplines and the social sciences (including, inter alia, international business, marketing, management, management education, organisation studies, tourism and hospitality, accounting, finance, law, and economics). The book is written for a global audience of prospective and existing postgraduate researchers (PGRs) and can be used and implemented as a core text in PhD induction programmes, across countries. Academic supervisors too should find this book a valuable resource on how they can fulfil their responsibility to guide PGRs toward a successful completion of their doctorate. Specific practical guidance is informed, at strategic points throughout the text, by stories of the lived experience of past PGRs as well as the authors’ personal professional anecdotes and real-life examples of «how to» and «how not to».

This compendium of useful information and tools draws from the authors’ decades of experience in teaching at all levels of educational provision (from undergraduate programmes through to the Doctorate of Business Administration), publishing in academic journals of high repute, successful PhD supervision and examining (in the UK and abroad), and in their roles as strategic and academic directors of doctoral programmes in different UK universities.

Building a Research-Rich Teaching Profession

The Promises and Challenges of Doctoral Studies as a Form of Teacher Professional Development

Series:

Marta Kowalczuk-Walędziak

This book offers a research-based insight into a unique - and growing - group of teachers: those who have decided to undertake doctoral studies as a part of their ongoing professional development. Drawing on interviews with 30 Polish teachers with PhDs, this book illustrates how the doctorate is an important vehicle for strengthening teachers’ skills and knowledge, leading them to implement research-based teaching and learning pedagogies in their classrooms. Given these promising findings, this text ultimately seeks to identify implications for policy and practice in the process of building a truly research-rich teaching profession. After all, it is time to rethink the current doctoral education landscape, with the goal of enriching the relationship between research and practice.
