Lehnprägungen im Tschechischen und Sorbischen

Eine diachrone, korpusbasierte Analyse ausgewählter Lexeme und Präfixe

Series:

Katja Brankačkec, Frantisek Martínek and Anna Paap

Die Autoren erproben in diesem Buch eine neue Herangehensweise an das Phänomen der Lehnprägung im Tschechischen und Sorbischen. Basierend auf diachronen Korpora und Wörterbüchern wird in vier exemplarischen Studien gezeigt, wie Sprachkontakt und «eigene Entwicklung» miteinander verwoben sind. Zwei Untersuchungen verfolgen die Entwicklung der Valenz ausgewählter Verben. In zwei weiteren werden die Präfixe před-/pśed- und nad- aus Sicht der Wortbildung charakterisiert. In allen drei Sprachen wird eine unterschiedlich weit fortgeschrittene semantische Strukturanpassung beobachtet. Daher plädieren die Autoren für eine Integrierung der Lehnprägung in die Darstellung der Wortbildung statt einer Dichotomie zwischen «fremd» und «eigen».

In recent years, the terms "ethics," "politics," "performativity," and "experience" have proliferated throughout the discourse of the humanities. However, it is rarely noted that their contemporary understanding has been shaped by the works of Jacques Derrida, who has employed all these concepts since the mid-1960s. The aim of this book is to present the lesser discussed topics of Derrida’s thought – not only as the creator of a specific mode of interpretation called "deconstruction" but also as an initiator of recent ethical and political reflection, a pioneer of performatics, and a precursor of current research on experience. At the same time, the book provides a panorama of the most important changes in the humanities of the last thirty years, and in particular – the ethical, performative, and empirical turns.

The book is the first volume of an extensive four-volume monograph devoted to the work of Cyprian Norwid (1821–1883), one of the most outstanding Polish authors. The impact of Norwid’s oeuvre does not fade, as he addresses fundamental and timeless issues, such as the moral and spiritual condition of man or his place in the world and history and seeks to answer universal questions. The book contains an extensive selection of contributions which represent different approaches to the poet’s work. They cover various areas of research, including interpretation, thematology, genology, and editing.

Black Women’s Narratives of NHS Work-Based Learning: An Ethnodrama

The Difference between Rhetoric and Lived Experience

Peggy Warren

This is an eight-scene drama portraying black women reliving their journey through higher education and work-based learning. Black women’s voices are the focus, reflecting on the complexities and dynamics of institutional power, professional exploitation, silencing, subordination and non-transformative education. A black feminist standpoint theoretical approach with an autoethnographic presentation invites the reader into the camaraderie, emotions, tears and laughter of a cohort of mature black healthcare workers engaging in a foundation degree with a promise of promotion. The author captures the voices of the women, weaves in her own account and sets the stories in fictional locations. Using cultural sayings, black philosophy and black music in a creative way, this work offers a platform from which to start discussions on black women’s labour in the NHS.

From Colonial to Post-Colonial Rule

The Transformation of Rule in an Important Strategic Area in South Vietnam

Bac Nguyen Van

This study is to analyze the transformation of the policies of different political systems for ethnic minorities in the Central Highlands (Vietnam) from French colonial rule to American warfare in the context of decolonization, cold-war politics, and attempts of national state formation. While substantial attention has been given to the pacification tactics, military campaigns, fighting took place in the hinterland battlefield; limited has been bestowed upon the domination strategies adopted over the Central Highlands during the period under review. This work goes one step further by examining the struggle of "the people-in-between" and interpreting policies of the actors those who fought terrible battles to gain the control, legitimize and stabilize their power in this contested space.

The topic of this book is practical knowledge in early modern Europe, interpreted widely as recipes containing art procedures or medical panaceas between 1400 and 1700. In this book, the 1) origin or creation, 2) transmission or dissemination, and 3) use or consumption are key subjects for understanding the place of practical knowledge in early modern European society. After a historiographical and theoretical approach, this book applies Deleuze and Guattari’s rhizome metaphor to art technological literature. The first part ends with a study about medical practitioners and mediators who disseminate practical knowledge through the printing press. The second part of the book is entirely dedicated to the booklet A Very Proper Treatise (1573), using a microhistory approach to study it.

The objective of this book is to continue the reflection on the innovative potential of misunderstanding in cross-cultural encounters which we started by publishing the first part of the book (Understanding Misunderstanding. Vol. 1: Cross-Cultural Translation, Peter Lang 2019). The main purpose of these two corresponding volumes is to embrace not only the cross-cultural adaptation of texts, ideas and discourses in distant geo-historical contexts, but also the culturally-based mechanisms of creatively transforming and re-shaping the source-text in target environments. The notions of misunderstanding and semantic transformation are seen as crucial in this process, yet still not widely acknowledged.
