Voices and Visions

Interviews with the Contemporary English-Language Poets of Wales

Series:

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.

The central aim of Water as an Image of the Spirit in the Johannine Literature is to propose two sets of indicators that can be used to assess the symbolic reference of water imagery in the Johannine literature. The first set, comprised of five indicators, can be used to decide whether a given instance of water imagery in the Johannine literature represents the Spirit. The other set, comprised of six indicators, can be used to determine whether a given instance of water imagery has a symbolic meaning instead of or in addition to its literal meaning. The validity of these indicators is demonstrated by applying them to six disputed water passages (1 John 5:6–8; Rev. 22:1–2; John 3:5, 4:10–14, 6:35, and 19:34). The author draws on narrative and exegetical methodologies to stage new claims that will incite further debate and discussion regarding the role of water imagery—and symbolic devices more broadly—in the Johannine texts.

Cognition and Temporality

The Genesis of Historical Thought in Perception and Reasoning

Mark E. Blum

Cognition and Temporality: The Genesis of Historical Thought in Perception and Reasoning argues that both verbal grammar and figural grammar have their cognitive basis in twelve characteristic forms of judgment, distributed among individuals in human populations throughout history. These twelve logical forms are context-free and language-free foundations in our attentional awareness and shape all verbal and figural statements. Moreover, these types of historical judgment are psychogenetic inheritances in a population, and each serves a distinct problem-solving function in the human species. Through analysis of verbal and figural statements, Mark E. Blum contends, the researcher can find evidence of these forms of judgment and in turn analyze how the event to which those statements attend is formally constructed by that judgment. This construction guides how the event is assessed, approached, and engaged in the process of problem-solving.

Artists and aestheticians in the early twentieth century—including Wassily Kandinsky, Stephen C. Pepper, and Andrew Paul Ushenko—have all posited an inherited attentional perspective in individuals, manifested in the logical correspondence between their distinctive verbal and figural grammars. Cognition and Temporality elaborates these claims, arguing that while the styles of well-known writers and artists are conditioned by the public styles of a particular time period, variations in personal style manifest one’s inherited form of judgment and the characteristic grammars that express that form. Through rigorous visual and stylistic analysis, this book demonstrates the expression of these forms among notable painters, historians, and writers across history. The result is a wide-ranging and provocative contribution to phenomenology, aesthetic philosophy, and cultural history.

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.

Das Buch analysiert den Paradigmenwechsel von einem Zerschlagungs- und Verteilungsrecht hin zu einem modernen Sanierungsrecht. Der Autor zeigt dabei Möglichkeiten auf, die zu einer Verfestigung und Verfeinerung des Sanierungsgedankens im Insolvenzrecht führen können. Am Anfang der Untersuchung steht die historische Entwicklung des Sanierungsgedankens, es folgt eine Betrachtung der bisherigen Umsetzung. Um den weiteren Reformbedarf des Insolvenzrechts aufzudecken, werden europäische Rechtsordnungen sowie Vorhaben auf europäischer Ebene daraufhin untersucht, ob sie eine Vorbildfunktion für das deutsche Sanierungsrecht haben könnten. Es werden konkrete Vorschläge zur Änderung des Insolvenzrechts unterbreitet, die geeignet sein könnten, Sanierungen in Deutschland noch weiter zu erleichtern.

Viele bisher erfolgte Einführungen von lernfeldorientierten Lehrplänen schöpfen das unterrichtsbezogene Potential des Lernfeldansatzes an den Berufsschulen meist nicht aus. Ausgangspunkt der vorliegenden Untersuchung ist die Anpassung des bisher fachsystematischen Lehrplans im Ausbildungsberuf Landwirt in Bayern an das Lernfeldkonzept. Neu an dem gewählten Implementationsansatz ist die umfassende Vorgehensweise, bei der die Autorin durch eine kontinuierliche wissenschaftliche Begleitung einen exemplarischen Prozessablauf für Lehrplanimplementationen entwickelt, fördernde Maßnahmen diagnostiziert und Unterstützungsstrukturen für eine externe Begleitung erarbeitet.

La interpretación médica se ha convertido en un reto en la actualidad y el intérprete tiene que ser capaz de entender y gestionar los diferentes aspectos de la cultura del paciente. Estas destrezas tienen que complementarse con un buen dominio de los idiomas de trabajo, conocimiento terminológico y una serie de estrategias para interactuar entre el paciente y el proveedor. El presente estudio analiza datos extraídos de un corpus real de grabaciones, pretendiendo explorar el trabajo del intérprete en el contexto hospitalario, proporcionando herramientas y aspectos metodológicos que pueden servir para formar a futuros intérpretes. Además de convertirse en una herramienta que abra nuevas vías de investigación en el contexto de la interpretación de los servicios públicos.

Más allá de la frontera

Migraciones en las literaturas y culturas hispano-americanas

Series:

Edited by Carmen Luna Sellés and Rocío Rocío Hernández Arias

Los ensayos reunidos en este libro ofrecen una variada y muy notable aportación en torno al concepto de “migración“ aplicado fundamentalmente a las literaturas hispano-americanas. Sus reflexiones desafían los marcos tradicionales de las filologías nacionales y de la retórica, poniendo el centro de la investigación en lo dislocado, lo liminar, lo híbrido que impone una dialéctica de la heterogeneidad. Por otra parte, convocar a debate un concepto como “migración” en un ámbito tan extenso y complejo por fuerza implica ofrecer al lector un libro con múltiples enfoques y temáticas: la presencia de los fenómenos migratorios en la literatura, la construcción literaria de las identidades en movimiento, la literatura del exilio, la desterritorialización y la literatura en la era de la globalización, el tratamiento comparatista de mitos e imágenes, entre otros. Conscientes de esta variedad hemos divido el libro en ocho capítulos que dan cuenta de cierta taxonomía del concepto “migración” aplicado a los textos literarios.
