Edited by Jerome Teelucksingh and Shane Pantin

This book thematically analyses and surveys areas of Caribbean history and society. The work is divided into three parts: part one addresses migration and identity; part two explores policy and development; and part three explores music and literature. The volume places a fresh perspective on these topics. The essays depart from the usual broader themes of politics, economics and society and provide a deeper insight into forces that left a decisive legacy on aspects of the Caribbean region. Such contributions come at a time when some of the Caribbean territories are marking over 50 years as independent nation states and attempting to create, understand and forge ways of dealing with critical national and regional issues. The volume brings together a broad group of scholars writing on Caribbean issues including postgraduate students, lecturers, and researchers. Each chapter is thematically divided into the aforementioned areas. This book addresses areas much deeper than the linear historical and social science models, and it offers Caribbean academics and researchers a foundation for further research.

A Citizen of Yiddishland

Dovid Sfard and the Jewish Communist Milieu in Poland

Series:

Joanna Nalewajko-Kulikov

This pioneering study shows what brought Yiddish-speaking Jewish intelligentsia to the Communist movement in the interwar years. They believed that Communism is not only a way to solve the Jewish problem but also to save the Yiddish culture. Biography of the central protagonist of the book, a Yiddish writer Dovid (David) Sfard, is just a pretext to show a full range of Jewish Communist activists (such as Hersh Smolar, Bernard Mark, Szymon Zachariasz, etc.) and their life choices. This relatively small milieu influenced and controlled the Jewish life in post-war Poland until the anti-Semitic campaign of 1968. Their lives, reconstructed thanks to sources in several languages, make up a panorama of Jewish Communist experience in 20th-century Eastern Europe.

Personenbezogene Daten als Entgelt

Eine Untersuchung anhand schuldvertrags-, datenschutz- und kartellrechtlicher Fragestellungen

Series:

Franziska Leinemann

Datengetriebene Geschäftsmodelle prägen die Wirtschaftswelt. In ihnen spiegelt sich anschaulich wider, dass die Verarbeitung personenbezogener Daten für die verschiedensten Zwecke einen wirtschaftlichen Wert verkörpert. Hieran anknüpfend beschäftigt sich die Autorin mit der Frage, ob Angebote, für deren Inanspruchnahme zwar kein Geldbetrag entrichtet, aber eine datenschutzrechtliche Einwilligung erteilt wird, als entgeltlich oder unentgeltlich zu qualifizieren sind. Sie setzt sich in diesem Zusammenhang unter anderem mit dem Begriff des Entgelts im Sinne des Schuldvertragsrechts des BGB auseinander. Zudem wird untersucht, ob die DS-GVO dem Geschäftsmodell „Personenbezogene Daten als Entgelt" entgegensteht.

Das Drama im Deutschunterricht um 1900

Der Diskurs über Lektürekanon und Literaturvermittlung

Series:

Helge C. Liebsch

Das Drama zählte um 1900 zur Leitgattung an höheren Schulen. Dramen von Schiller, Goethe und Lessing gehörten zum zentralen Bestandteil der Schullektüre. Wie sollte der Umgang mit dem Drama im Deutschunterricht erfolgen? Diese Studie rekonstruiert systematisch den Lektürekanon an höheren Schulen im Deutschen Reich und geht der intensiven Diskussion innerhalb der Literaturpädagogik über die Fragen der Textauswahl und die Möglichkeiten der Literaturvermittlung nach. Ausgewählt wurden Schulen, an denen die Gymnasialprofessoren unterrichteten, die sich mit den Fragen der Vermittlung beschäftigt haben. Hierzu werden Schulprogramme, Lehrpläne, literaturpädagogische Zeitschriften und Monographien ausgewertet, die bislang nur am Rande eine Beachtung gefunden haben.

The book introduces the model of the corporate compliance officer under US, UK and German law and practice. It aims to analyze the compliance function within private sector companies in the three selected jurisdictions in order to present a model of the German Compliance Officer. There is little uniformity and standardization of the German compliance function outside the banking sector. It has been recognized that a generally applicable definition of the compliance function is as yet absent. There is a need for a generally applicable definition and a modern understanding of the role of the compliance officer. This is why this book is intended to bridge the gap in knowledge concerning the applicable legal standards required to ensure the effectiveness of this position. As such, it may be useful to examine the legal environment of the compliance function outside of the German framework and to explore the professional status and role of the corporate compliance officer in other countries, such as in the US and the UK.

Stereoscopic London

Plays of Oscar Wilde, Bernard Shaw and Arthur Wing Pinero in 1890s

Gül Kurtuluş

The book is about Oscar Wilde’s, George Bernard Shaw’s and Arthur Wing Pinero’s plays written and performed in London in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The plays discussed in this book share important common points. They are set in London and illustrative of the realities of the metropolis. Performed extensively on the English stage and indeed throughout the English-speaking world, the plays reflect different backgrounds, origins, and life trajectories of the playwrights. There are perceptible differences in the attitudes as well as modes of expression of the playwrights. The works considered here are inextricably connected to London and they function as important documents of social history. They are examples of developing dramatic forms within which London and Londoners appear as both the dissolving and unifying elements of the broad spectrum of late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century society. The themes and concerns of these works accurately reflect those of Victorian/Edwardian Londoners. This book provides an understanding of the close connection between London society, with its manners and morals, and the city’s visible and invisible impact on the characters depicted in these plays.

Besonderheiten im sozialen Verhalten und emotionalen Erleben bei Lernenden mit Störungen des Lesens / Rechtschreibens

Analyse relevanter Faktoren aus Elternperspektive als Planungsgrundlage für Interventionsansätze

Yannic Wiegold

Probleme im Rechtschreiben gehen häufig einher mit Auffälligkeiten im Verhalten von Kindern und Jugendlichen, wie zum Beispiel Aufmerksamkeitsproblemen, Hausaufgabenkonflikten, depressiven Verstimmungen oder aggressiven Verhaltensweisen. In dieser Untersuchung wurden die Eltern von Lernenden mit Rechtschreibproblemen nach deren Verhalten befragt. Als Fragebögen wurden die Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) und die Deutsche Schulalter-Formen der Child Behavior Checklist eingesetzt. Aus den beschriebenen Auffälligkeiten leitet der Autor Interventionspunkte ab.

Dieses Buch bildet den zweiten Teil einer wissenschaftlichen Reihe, in der sieben Sprachebenen der Sprache der deutschsprachigen Kanzleien des Spätmittelalters auf dem Gebiet des Ordensstaates und der Nachfolgeländer beschrieben werden. In diesem Teil der Reihe werden morphologische Aspekte angeschnitten, wobei nur die Kategorien des Adjektivs und die Ablautklassen behandelt werden. Diese Bereiche sind wegen der vielen Neuerscheinungen besonders interessant. Die Autoren gehen einerseits auf relikthafte Erscheinungen in den einzelnen Ablautklassen eingegangen ein, andererseits auf die Bildung der zweiten und dritten Ablautreihe im Altthornischen Schöffenbuch. Es konnte nachgewiesen werden, dass der Text einen frühneuhochdeutschen Stand nicht ganz erreicht hat.

Employer branding is a concept which was introduced in 1996 and is defined as «the package of functional, economic and psychological benefits provided by employment, and identified with the employing company» (Amber & Barrow, 1996).

Even though the concept was originally introduced as a marketing term, latterly the employer branding terminology has entered the human resource management world. Organizations have to work on the desired level of employer branding internally and also externally to achieve efficiency and effectiveness. Organizations focused mostly on attracting and recruiting talents in a wide range of competitive environment which is influenced by a «war for talents». Employer branding is also known as an effective mechanism which is related to the internal value perceptions on the organizations.

The Higher Education industry, which is one of the biggest service industries in the world, has to give importance to the term «employer branding» for external and also internal stakeholders. Since the idea of the universities has changed, it forces universities to be one of the growth industries. This growth generates some important and critical challenges on working conditions of academics and also administrative personnel in higher education institutions (HEIs).

Edited by Klaus-Dieter Ertler, Yvonne Völkl, Elisabeth Hobisch, Alexandra Fuchs and Hans Fernández

The Spectators, also known as Moral Weeklies, were an important magazine genre which came into being in the early 18th century and which shaped European identity by developing the strategies of critical journalism and by popularizing the ideas and values of the Age of Enlightenment. Investigating modes of storytelling in the Spectators is an important starting point for a paradigmatic investigation of our historical, cultural and philosophical evolution since the Enlightenment and the impact of these magazines on issues of identity in today’s Europe. In this collection on ‹Storytelling in the Spectators›, we present a series of contributions which study English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch, Czech, Polish and Danish-Norwegian periodicals.
