Edited by Maria Eisenmann

Der vorliegende Band setzt sich mit der didaktischen Implementierung Shakespeares Werk auseinander. Im Fokus stehen dabei die in jüngster Zeit radikal veränderten medialen sowie literatur- und kulturwissenschaftlichen Bedingungen unter Berücksichtigung neuester didaktischer Erkenntnisse. Darüber hinaus verfolgt der Band das Ziel, neue interdisziplinäre Einblicke in verschiedene aktuelle Themen und Ansätze der Lehre Shakespeares im (Hoch-) Schulunterricht zu ermöglichen. Der Fokus ist darauf gerichtet, Theorie und Praxis zu verbinden, um so Studierenden, Wissenschaftler/innen und auch Lehrer/innen grundlegendes Wissen im Bereich der heutigen Shakespeare-Rezeption sowie praktische Beispiele, die sich in verschiedenen Unterrichtssituationen bewährt haben, zu vermitteln.

This volume deals with the methodological implementation of Shakespeare's work. The focus is on the recently radically changed media, literary and cultural studies conditions, taking into account the latest research findings in EFL methodology. In addition, the volume aims to provide new interdisciplinary insights into various current topics and approaches for teaching Shakespeare to all ages. The focus is on combining theory and practice to transmit profound knowlegde to university students and lecturers as well as to teachers. The essays in this collection try to account for both perspectives by giving an overview of contemporary Shakespeare scholarship as well as practical examples that have proven successful in a wide range of classroom situations.

Michal Stefan Krupa

Die gegenständliche Abhandlung über die römische «indignitas» bildet eine Antwort auf  «Paul Koschakers» Aufruf zur dogmengeschichtlichen und rechtsvergleichenden Untersuchung einzelner privatrechtlicher Rechtsinstitute. Trotz der gemeinsamen rechtsdogmatischen Herkunft – dem römisch-gemeinen Indignitätsrecht – präsentieren sich die Erbunwürdigkeitsbestimmungen der französischen, österreichischen und deutschen Privatrechtskodifikationen als ein aus vielen einzelnen Elementen zusammengestelltes Mosaik. Dieser historisch orientierte Rechtsvergleich der Erbunwürdigkeit liefert einen Beitrag zum besseren Verständnis der gegenwärtig geltenden Erbunwürdigkeitsrechte. Er «blickt» über den Tellerrand der Landesjurisprudenz, erklärt die nationalen Umformulierungen des römischen Erbunwürdigkeitsrechts und erforscht ihre Ursachen.

Perspektivenvielfalt im Literaturunterricht

Theoretische und qualitativ-empirische Untersuchungen zu einem didaktischen Prinzip

Katja Siepmann

Die Vielfalt der Welt muss im zeitgemäßen Unterricht widergespiegelt und reflektiert werden. Derjenige, der sich auf die Komplexität postmoderner Gesellschaften einlässt, macht Erfahrungen, die produktiv auszuhalten sind. Hier setzt die qualitativ-empirische Studie zu dem allgemeindidaktischen Prinzip der Perspektivenvielfalt an und untersucht sowohl dessen theoretische als auch empirische Relevanz. Die Untersuchung der Bedeutung für die Lehrkräfte und die Umsetzung in der Unterrichtsgestaltung stehen im Mittelpunkt der Arbeit. Der exemplarisch gewählte Literaturunterricht im Fach Deutsch bietet eine geeignete Gelegenheit für den Umgang mit Ambivalenz, Kontingenz und Vielfalt im Kontext eines Bildungsverständnisses, das Perspektivenwechsel, Diskursivität und Identitätsbildung betont.

Die Nutzenbewertung von Arzneimitteln nach § 35a SGB V

unter besonderer Berücksichtigung des Nutzenbegriffs

Series:

Christian Martin

Seit dem Jahr 2011 wird gemäß § 35a SGB V der Nutzen aller neu zugelassenen Arzneimittel vom IQWIG bewertet. Das Ergebnis der Nutzenbewertung ist für die Versichertengemeinschaft und die pharmazeutischen Unternehmer von gleichermaßen hoher Bedeutung.

Eine Legaldefinition des Nutzenbegriffs allerdings besteht bis heute nicht.

Die vorliegende Publikation beleuchtet das Verfahren der Nutzenbewertung und die sich in der Anwendung des § 35a SGB V stellenden Rechtsfragen. Aus den gesetzlichen und untergesetzlichen Bestimmungen wird der Nutzenbegriff geschärft und untersucht, wie aus medizinisch und sozialrechtlich identifizierten Nutzenpotentialen ein Nutzen im Sinne der Versichertengemeinschaft ermittelt und bewertet werden kann.

The Body of Christ in a Market Economy

An Anglican Inquiry into Economic Thinking

Gawain de Leeuw

Holy Scripture and Economists have distinct ways of exploring market networks. This book explains how desire connects scripture, economics, theological anthropology, and soteriology. By explaining the mechanics of desire and Jesus' saving grace, it becomes possible for churches and congregations to better align their networks for the common good within market economies. Rivalry is an expense. Follow Jesus or prepare to spend.

Industrialising Africa

Unlocking the Economic Potential of the Continent

Horman Chitonge

Industrializing Africa examines the prospect of industrial development on the African continent from a radically different perspective. The book demonstrates that the elusive industrial development in Africa is a clear manifest of an incomplete decolonization of African economies. Through a detailed discussion of the current status of industrial development and the past industrialization strategies implemented on the continent, the book clearly shows that sustained industrial growth will remain elusive as long as African economies continue to operate under the colonial economic structure and logic, where African countries are structured to supply raw materials to industrial centres. If Africa is to have a chance to significantly grow its industrial sector, it has to de-centre the colonial economic logic by learning to build industrial capabilities, even in areas where countries on the continent currently do not have comparative advantage.

Parcours de vie et mémoires de pauvres

Changements personnels et sociohistoriques dans les bidonvilles de Mumbai

Series:

Aude Martenot

Cette thèse s’inscrit dans la perspective du parcours de vie, sous l’angle du regard porté sur les changements personnels et sociohistoriques de l’existence, dans un contexte culturel précis, celui de l’Inde urbaine moderne. Au travers de la récolte de plus de 1250 interviews, réalisées à Mumbai en 2012 et 2014 parmi des adultes âgés de 20 à 86 ans, habitant·e·s de bidonvilles et d’immeubles de classe moyenne inférieure, le contenu et la temporalité des événements vécus considérés comme importants par les répondant·e·s sont analysés. Outre le souci évident d’observer les trajectoires et les moments marquants de la vie, selon le point de vue des personnes elles-mêmes, cette thèse cherche à dépasser l’a priori selon lequel les habitant·e·s des slums seraient vulnérables par évidence, afin de révéler des vulnérabilités insoupçonnées, présentes sous des formes diverses.

The Rise of the South in American Thought and Education

The Rockefeller Years (1902-1917) and Beyond

Series:

John M. Heffron

The Rise of the South in American Thought and Education: The Rockefeller Years (1902-1917), and Beyond documents the rise—both real and imaginary—of the South in American thought and education at the close of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth century. The South’s main appeal to industrial statesmen like the Rockefellers, their philanthropic work a focus of the book, was what it symbolized to them at a time when traditional elites in both regions were facing a frightening new array of social and political conditions, much of them pursuant to the country’s very real industrial "takeoff." Those who presided over the nation’s economy understood the need for orderly change that would balance the demands (and dislocations) of modernization with America’s most cherished traditions. They viewed the reactionary South and its nationalization as an important counterweight to centrifugal tendencies in the North, including the rapid growth of cities and their "Romanization" by a flood tide of property less, uneducated, and discontented southern and eastern European immigrants. The traditional emphasis in the South on vocational education (the Christian ethic of work as redemption, not the Republican one of free labor), country life and living, racial segregation, and the centrality of nature study as a source of both science and religion, added up to a coherent vision that responded to "undesirable" economic and social change in the urban North. The survival of Southern cultural traditions, as antiquated as they were, posed no threat to the plans of corporate progressives; indeed, as the book argues, it facilitated them, and nowhere more so than in the field of education. Modern educators wanting to put into historical context relations of class, race, and ethnicity as they persist in today’s schools will find much here to inform them, putting to rest, for example, false distinctions in the history of school reform between a liberal-progressive North and a conservative and reactionary South. This book will also appeal to a popular audience of Americans curious to understand the illiberal foundations of the modern liberal state.

Abdin Noboa-Rios

Academic year 2014-15 marked the first year that public school enrollment (preK-12) became majority nonwhite, with the Hispanic/Latino as the largest minority. Significant population shifts have continued to occur, with Latinos now representing 1-in-4 (28%) public school students.

Meanwhile, the public schools are in trouble, with international achievement reaching new lows and where progress for nearly two-thirds of all 4th and 8th graders stagnant and below proficiency levels, now decades old. According to the Nation’s Report Card, students of color rank lowest, with Latinos and African Americans consistently at the bottom.

To understand the history of Latinos in particular, Dr. Noboa-Ríos goes back to recreate the story. Here he relates the dark legacy before and after Plessy, but also upon examining post-Brown challenges that linger. Meanwhile, demography has shifter greatly and the future of the country is now greatly dependent on the academic success of Latino children. Different from the past, this population can no longer be ignored. This is dramatically different from former years, as it represents a new urgency for the nation, one that can no longer be ignored.

As the story of education rapidly unfolds, America’s challenge is now to ensure Latino students excel or the country is in peril. It is important to understand why and how this has occurred to ensure it is rectified for a better and more balanced future for the nation, not just the Latino population.

Kimberley Mangun

This cultural biography tells the story of Birmingham World editor Emory O. Jackson. During his 35-year career in Alabama, he waged numerous sustained civil-rights campaigns for the franchise, equal educational opportunities, and justice for the victims of police brutality and bombings. The semiweekly newspaper was central to his advocacy. Jackson wrote editorials and columns that documented injustices and urged legislative and legal action in an effort to secure civil rights for Black Alabamians. His body of work, grounded in protest and passion, was part of the long tradition of the Black Press as an instrument to agitate for social and political change. Jackson also was a frequent speaker at NAACP branches, colleges, and churches. He was known as a commanding, even fiery, speaker who stressed first-class citizenship. Issues explored in the book demonstrate an assertion of constitutional rights in post-World War II America and a remarkable resilience. Editor Emory O. Jackson, the Birmingham World, and the Fight for Civil Rights in Alabama, 1940-1975 is the first scholarly analysis of his work and as such contributes to scholarship on the Civil Rights Movement in Alabama and the nation.
