Unsettling Education

Searching for Ethical Footing in a Time of Reform

Series:

Edited by Brian Charest and Kate Sjostrom

Unsettling Education: Searching for Ethical Footing in a Time of Reform offers a counter-narrative to the prevailing orthodoxies of schooling and school reform that conflate education and learning with that which can be measured on state-mandated examinations. Despite the push to "settle" the purposes of teaching and schooling in ways that see education as the teaching of a discrete set of skills that align with standardized exams, there are teachers and students who continue to resist standardization and whose stories suggest there are many ways to organize schools, design curriculum, and understand the purposes of education. Unsettling Education shares stories of how teachers have resisted state and local mandates to teach to the test in dehumanizing ways, how such teachers have sought to de-commodify educational spaces, how they have enacted their ethical commitments to students and communities, and how they have theorized such practices, sometimes even reconsidering their roles as teachers and the very purposes of schooling. Volume contributors offer concrete ways in which teachers might challenge the structures of schooling to reveal the full humanity and potential of students through different forms of resistance pedagogy, institutional critiques, and critical self-reflection. Featuring a wide range of voices and contexts, the collections’ chapters blend story and theory, resulting in a volume both accessible and thought-provoking to varied audiences—from undergraduate students of education and concerned citizens to veteran educators, teacher educators, administrators, and policymakers.

It is established that the informal sector plays an important role in the creation of job opportunities for many rural and urban people. However, there is a scarcity of academic research on the relationship between gender, informality of employment and poverty reduction in Morocco with particular reference to the city of Fez. This book focuses on investigating the contribution of women’s self-employed work in the informal sector in reducing household poverty in the city of Fez. This is done through the medium of specific framework objectives. First, the book sets out the types of women engaged in informal sector activities in the city of Fez. Secondly, it makes a situational analysis of the contribution of women’s work in the informal sector to reduce poverty in their households in this region of Morocco. Thirdly, it identifies the linkages between working as self-employed persons and emancipation of women through their participation in political and social activism in Fez and lastly, it uncovers the main difficulties impeding the development of women in self-employed activities in the informal sector and identifies the various challenges for the development of their businesses in Fez.

О некоторых тенденциях в современной русскоязычной поэзии (на материале А. Сен-Сенькова и группы «Орбита»)

Series:

Edited by Massimo Maurizio

В русскоязычном поэтическом пространстве последней четверти века можно наблюдать целый ряд тенденций писательских стратегий, так или иначе направленных на определение места и роли пишущего (но не только) субъекта в мире возникших после крушения СССР «сценариев» (Кукулин). На примере творчества А. Сен-Сенькова и группы «Орбита» мы обращаем внимание на выразительные, формальные и композиционные средства, с помощью которых авторы пытаются снова ре-индивидуализировать (Кузьмин) личное высказывание и модальности самовыражения в контексте «постправды» и «текучей» современности.

How Stories Teach Us

Composition, Life Writing, and Blended Scholarship

Edited by Amy E. Robillard and D. Shane Combs

In How Stories Teach Us: Composition, Life Writing, and Blended Scholarship, Amy E. Robillard and D. Shane Combs leave behind the debate between the personal and the academic in composition studies in order to witness what happens when composition scholars allow both the personal and the academic to act upon them in the stories they tell. The editors and contributors, in blending their scholarship, celebrate the influence of life writing on their work and allow the contexts of their lives and the urgency of their stories to blend together for a range of approaches to scholarship and essay writing. This blended scholarship features scholars and teachers dealing with loss, grief, illness, trauma, depression, abuse, gender identity, and the ravages of time. How Stories Teach Us is both a challenge and an invitation to composition scholars to pursue a fuller and more robust approach to their scholarship and life stories. It is also an invitation to teachers of composition to open up the potentials of blended scholarship to the students they teach.

Als Folge der mehr als 120-jährigen Teilungszeit galten in Polen nach 1918 fünf verschiedene Zivilrechte. Die Verabschiedung eines Obligationsgesetzbuches 1933 war ein wesentlicher Schritt zur innerstaatlichen Rechtsvereinheitlichung. Die Bedeutung des deutschen Rechts in diesem Prozess wird in dem vorliegenden Buch am Beispiel des Leistungsstörungsrechts untersucht. Anhand ausgewählter Faktoren werden die Rahmenbedingungen damaliger polnischer Gesetzgebung beleuchtet, die durch die unterschiedliche Entwicklung der ehemaligen drei Teilungsgebiete geprägt waren. Die Autorin nimmt auch auf die Biographien der Gesetzesautoren Bezug. Eine Auswertung des damaligen deutschen Schrifttums zeigt zudem, dass das Gesetz in der deutschen Rechtswissenschaft positiv wahrgenommen wurde.

Die Finanzbehörden haben in jüngerer Zeit in einigen Fällen Rechtsbehelfe der Steuerpflichtigen gegen deren Steuerbescheide zum Anlass genommen, die streitigen Beträge gegen deren Willen auszusetzen. Ein solches Vorgehen ist aus staatlicher Sicht mit Blick auf die bei Unterliegen des Rechtsbehelfsführers verwirkten Aussetzungszinsen in kapitalmarktferner Höhe (6 % p.a.) lukrativ, wohingegen letzterem neben dem Aussetzungszinsrisiko die Chance auf eigene Zinsansprüche im Obsiegensfalle in selbiger Höhe genommen wird. Der Autor untersucht diese atypische Aussetzungssituation. Er prüft, ob eine solche aufgedrängte Aussetzung der Vollziehung generell ermessensfehlerhaft ist und welche Auswirkungen das Zusammenspiel zwischen Aussetzungs-, Zinsfestsetzungs- und Zinsverzichtsverfahren für die Rechtsschutzmöglichkeiten des Betroffenen hat.

Grenzen der Vertriebsgestaltungsfreiheit der Versicherer unter besonderer Berücksichtigung des kartellrechtlichen Diskriminierungs- und Behinderungsverbots

Series:

Britta Netzband

Versicherungsmakler müssen nicht nur Versicherungskunden akquirieren, sondern auch Courtagevereinbarungen mit Versicherern schließen. Die Autorin befasst sich mit der Frage, ob ein Versicherer verpflichtet sein kann mit einem Versicherungsmakler entgeltlich zusammenzuarbeiten. Sie stellt hierzu den Courtageanspruch und das Wettbewerbsumfeld des Versicherungsmaklers dar und prüft anschließend in verschiedenen Fallkonstellationen die Grenzen der Vertriebsgestaltungfreiheit der Versicherer nach dem Vertrags- und Kartellrecht. Schwerpunkt bildet die kartellrechtliche Missbrauchskontrolle. Sie zeigt hierbei die Besonderheiten des Versicherungsvertriebsmarktes und erörtert die Begrenzung wettbewerblicher Handlungsspielräume, die sich aus Beratungspflichten ergeben.

Bible – Pastorale – Didactique/Bible – Pastoral – Didactics

"Animatio biblica totius actionis pastoralis" « La Parole de Dieu est à l’œuvre en vous, les croyants » (1Th, 2,13)/“God’s Word is at Work in You Who Believe”

Series:

Edited by Daniel Laliberté and Georg Rubel

C’est dans une salle de classe du Grand séminaire de Luxembourg qu’a été forgée en 1993, par un groupe de travail de la Fédération biblique catholique, l’expression animation biblique de toute la pastorale. Or cette expression a pris une portée majeure depuis qu’elle a fait son chemin jusque dans un texte officiel de l’Église, Verbum Domini, où elle apparaît comme source de la « rencontre personnelle avec le Christ qui se communique à nous dans sa Parole » (VD 73). En hommage à cet héritage, la Luxembourg School of Religion & Society organisait en ses murs un colloque articulé autour de deux questions : peut-on donner une définition consensuelle de l’animation biblique de toute la pastorale ? Et comment faudrait-il transformer les programmes de formation théologique afin qu’ils habilitent les agents pastoraux à implanter dans leur milieu cette animation biblique de toute la pastorale ?

The expression Biblica animatio totius actionis pastoralis, which is now part of the Magisterium of the Catholic Church since its appearance in Verbum Domini, was first created in Luxembourg in 1993, during a meeting of the Catholic biblical federation. The Luxembourg School of Religion & Society organized, as a tribute to this legacy, a Conference articulated around two questions: is it possible to come to a consensual definition of biblical animation of the whole pastoral life? And how should theological training programs be transformed, so that they empower the pastoral agents to implement this pastoral vision in their Christian communities?
