The aim of this book is to highlight the issue of internal migrations and emphasise the need to conduct research on their course and consequences, including those stemming from historical processes. The complexity of this topic is illustrated by the fact that the chapters contained in the book have been written by representatives of different disciplines: sociology, psychology, geography and economics, which may suggest the need for interdisciplinary research to be conducted in the future.

Milieux de mémoire in Late Modernity

Local Communities, Religion and Historical Politics

Series:

Zuzanna Bogumił and Małgorzata Głowacka-Grajper

This book shows how vernacular communities commemorate their traumatic experiences of the Second World War. Despite having access to many diverse memory frameworks typical of late modernity, these communities primarily function within religious memory frameworks. The book also traces how they reacted when their local histories were incorporated into the remembrance practices of the state. The authors draw on case studies of four vernacular communities, notably Kałków-Godów, Michniów, Jedwabne and Markowa, to argue that it is still possible in the Polish countryside to discover milieux de mémoire. At the same time, they show that the state not only uses local histories to bolster its moral capital in the international arena, but also in matters of domestic policy.

Los trabajos de investigación que se recogen en este volumen abarcan temáticas lingüísticas tan diversas como la sintaxis, la lexicología, la lexicografía, la dialectología, la traducción, la toponimia, la didáctica, el discurso público, etc., y lenguas tan heterogéneas como el español, el bereber, el mancañá y el árabe. Coinciden todos ellos en atender a los problemas que abordan con las metodologías lingüísticas  más recientes, que van desde la lingüística contrastiva hasta la lingüística de género, pasando por la semántica lingüística, la traductología, la sociolingüística, la onomástica, la historiografía, la lingüística del discurso o la fraseología.

The presence in the Bible of texts (i.e. Exo 21; Num 25; Deu 7) about violence and pointing to God as its direct agent raises many doubts in the contemporary reader. These texts understood literally can be read as an encouragement to aggression and hatred.

A closer study of this type of texts based on modern research methods (i.e. historical criticism) allows a deeper understanding of their meaning and loosens their relation to God. The study of texts points that the Bible or any part of it cannot be a pretext for any kind of aggression or hatred.

The Concept of Modern Law

Polish and Central European Tradition

Series:

Edited by Michał Peno and Konrad Burdziak

This book contains texts prepared by representatives of various branches of law, philosophers and dogmatists who link a general reflection on law with caselaw. This ensures that the presented approaches are versatile and insightful, and that the addressed issues vary, the most important of which is the oeuvre of the Polish jurisprudence and its contribution to building a modern state and legal theories. The context exceeds beyond a simple report on or presentation of this oeuvre and, in many cases, it only refers to it.

The primary aim of this book is to determine, as follows: 1) the source (at least the potential source) of modernist solutions in the Polish law, 2) the realness of the modernist character of the said source and 3) the refection of these modernist solutions in the currently binding Polish law.

Through selected topics, the book presents an up-to-date and comprehensive view of the popular music of communist and post-communist Europe. The studies introduce new sources, discuss transformations of the institutional background of popular music of the given geopolitical sphere, its social, cultural-political, or artistic conditions. Thanks to the time span of nearly thirty years since the fall of the Iron Curtain, the authors have in many ways revised or supplemented traditional post-communist perceptions of the issues in question. This is being done with respect to the genres such as jazz, rock, pop, singer-songwriters, hip-hop, or White Power Music, as well as across the whole region from the former Yugoslavia through Central European states to the countries of the former Soviet Union.

Soziale Medien fordern die Didaktik unter zweierlei Perspektive heraus: Als Instrumente didaktischen Handelns können sie Unterricht bei der Erreichung seiner Vermittlungs- und Förderziele bereichern. Als Reflexionsgegenstand müssen sie hinsichtlich ihrer Effekte auf Sprache, Kommunikation, Individuum und Gesellschaft analysiert werden, um Lernenden Kompetenzen für die Orientierung in der digitalen Welt zu vermitteln. Dieser Band präsentiert zehn Arbeiten von 17 Autorinnen und Autoren aus Linguistik, Sprach- und Mediendidaktik, die anhand von Praxisbeispielen und Unterrichtsanregungen aktuelle Entwicklungen und Herausforderungen in Bezug auf das Lehren und Lernen mit sozialen Medien und über soziale Medien reflektieren.

Der Band vereint elf Studien der deutschen Slavistin und Bohemistin Herta Schmid zum tschechischen Strukturalismus. Sie entwickelte in den zwischen 1970 und 2014 entstandenen Beiträgen eine neue Perspektive auf zentrale Begriffe und Theoreme des tschechischen Strukturalismus und erforschte vielfältige kontextuelle Bezüge ‒ zum russischen Formalismus, zur deutschen Philosophie, zum Poststrukturalismus. Die erstmals in einer repräsentativen Gesamtschau zusammengestellten Aufsätze lassen theoretische Entwicklungslinien und -konzepte in der dezidiert literaturwissenschaftlich ausgerichteten Beschäftigung der Autorin mit dem tschechischen Strukturalismus hervortreten.

Kaiserliches Handeln im 3. Jahrhundert als situatives Gestalten

Studien zur Regierungspraxis und zu Funktionen der Herrschaftsrepräsentation des Gallienus

Series:

Sophie Röder

Die Frage nach dem Handeln römischer Kaiser (passiv-reagierend hier, aktiv-programmatisch dort) beschäftigt die althistorische Forschung seit geraumer Zeit. Das 3. Jahrhundert nimmt darin eine besondere Rolle ein, da es von Kontinuitäten und Wandel gleichermaßen geprägt ist. Die Regierungszeit des Gallienus (254–268) ist für eine solche Studie aufgrund ihrer Länge besonders geeignet. Durch eine detaillierte Quellenanalyse untersucht die Autorin Herrschaftsrepräsentation und die verschiedenen Bereiche der Regierungspraxis auf die Frage hin, inwieweit Gallienus auf Herausforderungen seiner Zeit reagiert, aber gleichzeitig seine Regierung gestaltet und dabei zu Kontinuität und Wandel beiträgt.

The main theme of this book revolves around the idea of Europeanization of the Western Balkans. In that respect, the volume discusses the fight against corruption and regional relations in former Yugoslav states, such as Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia. The objective of the book is to detect the level of effectiveness of the EU impact on domestic structural changes in the Western Balkans regarding aforementioned research issues. The contributors argue that the EU impact in the Western Balkans has so far been limited and point to limitations in this regard.

«The book Balkanizing Europeanisation offers timely, detailed, critical and excellently researched insight into the complicated mutual relations of the EU and the countries of the Balkan Peninsula. Based on excellent scholarship, meticulous original research and first-hand experience with the Balkan area, the authors provide a reader with rich and profound analysis of successes and failures of Europeanisation of the Balkan countries. The volume shall become an obligatory reading for many categories of scholars, experts, and people practicing diplomacy with and in the region.»

Vít Hloušek, Professor of European Politics, Masaryk University

«The limits to and problems connected with processes of Europeanization in the Western Balkans remain an important topic both for policy-makers and for scholarly inquiry. Vučković and Đorđević are to be congratulated for having assembled a first-rate teach of scholars to examine the most vital issues at hand.»

Sabrina P. Ramet, Professor of Political Science, The Norwegian University of Science & Technology
