Le présent volume se propose de réfléchir sur les divers enjeux de la présence de l’animal dans la production littéraire d’expression française du XIXe siècle. La littérature de cette période n’est certes pas la première à représenter l’animal ; c’est pourtant à cette époque-là que l’on voit se multiplier les ouvrages consacrés aux animaux. Les auteurs, chercheurs dix-neuviémistes, démontrent le statut littéraire de l’animal, le personnage animal et sa relation avec le personnage humain (réel ou fictif), les frontières de l’animalité, l’animal fantastique et métaphorique, ou encore la bête devenue objet esthétique dans divers domaines d’art. Les nombreux aspects la problématique abordée épousent des approches souvent transgénériques et transdisciplinaires.

Engendering #BlackGirlJoy

How to Cultivate Empowered Identities and Educational Persistence in Struggling Schools

Series:

Monique Lane

We are living in historic times and negotiating multiple national crises. The confluence of the COVID-19 pandemic and unrelenting state-sanctioned murders of Black people has disproportionately impacted our women and girls at the intersections of employment, citizenship, housing, healthcare, and motherhood statuses. As many individuals rally for liberation on the frontlines, how might educational institutions intervene as sources of respite and reparation?

Historically, racialized sexism in U.S. schools has manifested uniquely for Black girl-identified adolescents (including cisgender, queer, and transgender youth). These learners face heightened exposure to malicious discourses and exclusionary disciplinary policies. Engendering #BlackGirlJoy identifies the teaching practices that equip young Black women to locate, analyze, heal from, and ultimately thrive through the suffering they face inside and outside of schools.

The book is rooted in the author’s experience as a South Los Angeles high school teacher working at her alma mater, trying to cultivate the life-affirming education that she desired as a child. Centering her students’ perspectives, Monique Lane outlines a Black feminist pedagogical framework that inspired bountiful #BlackGirlJoy in one embattled public school. This text is a heartfelt offering to educators committed to taking courageous and innovative action—in solidarity with Black girl learners—toward the betterment of their lives!

Estudios sobre el Teatro hispánico de los Siglos de Oro

Iñaki Pérez-Ibáñez and Miguel Zugasti

El presente volumen quiere acercar las diferentes corrientes de investigación sobre el teatro áureo hispánico que se llevan a cabo en ambos lados del Atlántico y que parecen ser cada vez más divergentes. Mientras que los críticos europeos suelen achacar a los colegas americanos su lectura anacrónica de los textos áureos desde corrientes interpretativas contemporáneas, estos acusan a aquellos de un excesivo apego al texto donde la ecdótica y un malinterpretado rigor textual alejan el teatro áureo del público moderno. Nuestro trabajo por lo tanto tiene una finalidad integradora y pretende demostrar que la buena filología no conoce de fronteras. Un volumen complejo, completo y caleidoscópico que se aproxima al teatro del Siglo de Oro con una multiplicidad de miradas que una vez compaginadas nos permite empezar a abarcar la complejidad del fenómeno. Los trabajos aquí recogidos se centran en la tríada poeta (dramaturgo), autores-actores, público-festejos, elementos esenciales para poder realizar una aproximación amplia y polifónica a una realidad extraordinariamente rica.

Vor dem Hintergrund der umfangreichen Veränderungen, die das Kapital-marktrecht in den vergangenen Jahren erfahren hat, stellen sich für Emittenten verschiedene Anwendungsfragen bei der Prognoseberichterstattung. Während.  Investoren ein besonders hohes Interesse daran haben, die Zukunftsaussichten von Emittenten und die Entwicklung derer Wertpapiere zutreffend einschätzen zu können, kann eine fehlerhafte Prognoseberichterstattung zu schwerwiegenden (haftungsrechtlichen) Folgen für Emittenten führen. Diese Arbeit untersucht und erläutert, wie Emittenten eine gute Prognoseberichterstattung gewährleisten können und welche gesetzlichen und / oder untergesetzlichen Anforderungen und Spielräume dabei bestehen.

States of Nature and Social Contracts

The Metaphors of the Liberal Order

Kevin Dooley

This book examines the most significant metaphors of modern political philosophy: the state of nature and the social contract. Each of the main chapters is dedicated to the political theory of the different social contract thinkers and the ways they articulated the uniquely liberal view of equality and freedom. The last chapter, unique to most books that explore the social contract, highlights the recent challenges to these views. It is this balance between accepted contractarian ideas and their critiques that makes this book a unique contribution to the field of political philosophy.

This book contains new theories, approaches and practices that scientists deal with regarding physical planning and design.

Edited by Mary M. Cronin and Debra Reddin van Tuyll

Although the American Civil War has received extensive scholarly attention in the 150+ years since its conclusion, far less scholarly work has been devoted to western newspapers and their experiences of that bloody conflict. This first volume of a two-volume set reveals that the West was not immune from the war’s battles, military recruitment, national anxieties, or partisan infighting. The Western Press in the Crucible of the American Civil War explores how editors throughout the region (from the Great Plains to the Pacific Coast) responded to secession, the war, and its immediate aftermath. This edited volume examines editors’ outspoken partisanship (including political feuds), their newsgathering techniques, their financial concerns, and their responses to wartime press censorship. The book also reveals how the war was reported in the western press, while also casting a light on reporting of home front issues. This first volume reveals the financial and editorial lengths that editors went to in order to meet readers’ demands for war and home front news across a vast region where infrastructure was poor and news, therefore, was often slow to arrive. The second volume, The Midwestern Press in the Crucible of the American Civil War, focuses on the press in the midwestern United States.

Ehrenamtliche Polizeihelfer und Hilfspolizeibeamte

Eine verfassungsrechtliche Untersuchung zu den Grenzen der Übertragung von Aufgaben der Gefahrenabwehr auf Nichtpolizeibeamte

Series:

Philipp Stein

Die vorliegende Publikation beschäftigt sich mit dem Phänomen einer wachsenden Pluralität polizierender Akteure in Deutschland. Neben dem zentralen Akteur Polizei werden zunehmend Privatpersonen zur Sicherheitsgewährleistung im öffentlichen Raum eingesetzt. Als klassischster Bereich der Eingriffsverwaltung sind damit vielfältige verfassungsrechtliche Probleme verknüpft, insbesondere im Hinblick auf das staatliche Gewaltmonopol, den Vorbehalt des Gesetzes sowie den Funktionsvorbehalt für das Berufsbeamtentum. Der Verfasser ordnet und systematisiert die unterschiedlichen Modelle zur Einbindung von Privatpersonen in die polizeiliche Tätigkeit und untersucht diese unter verfassungsrechtlichen Gesichtspunkten.
