Narrative Research as Being
Petra Munro Hendry, Roland Mitchell and Paul Eaton
Troubling Method: Narrative Research as Being seeks to extract narrative inquiry from method. The shift to a post-humanist, post-qualitative moment is not just another stage in modernism that seeks to "improve" knowledge production, but is a shift to understanding research as an ontology, a way of being in the world, rather than a mode of production. Fundamental assumptions of research: method, data, analysis, and findings are deconstructed and reconfigured as a mode of relational intra-action.
Troubling Method is constructed as a dialogue between the three authors, focusing on their work as qualitative, narrative researchers. The authors revisit six previously published works in which they grapple with the contradictions and ironies of engaging in pragmatist, critical, feminist qualitative research. After a lengthy introduction which problematizes "method", the book is divided into three sections, each with two chapters that are bracketed by an introduction to the issues discussed in the chapters and then a "dialogue interlude" in which the authors deliberate what makes possible the questions they are raising about method and narrative research. The three sections attend to the central premises of "narrative research as being": 1) relationships 2) listening and 3) unknowing.
Troubling Method is ideal for introductory or advanced courses in qualitative research, narrative inquiry, educational research, and those aimed at employing critical theories in qualitative and narrative inquiry.
Tabucchi’s Travelling Texts
This study focuses on Antonio Tabucchi’s texts in, on and through translation. It combines an analysis of the ways his texts have been translated into other languages with an examination of the way his translations, critical essays and fictions reflect on the value and possibilities of translation.
The book suggests that using translation as a means through which to approach Tabucchi’s works enables us to both develop new perspectives on Tabucchi’s texts and to reflect on some key issues in translation studies. These include the way we think about the intersections between translation and other forms of writing, between translation and space, between translation and memory, between translation as process and product. This study combines a broad mapping of Tabucchi’s travelling texts with more detailed textual analysis of selected works themselves.
One of the study’s major innovations is the analysis of a new body of interviews with Tabucchi’s translators from across Europe, Asia and America. The interviews, conducted as part of the study, offer fascinating new perspectives on the transnational movement of the same (often Eurocentric) texts between and across languages as well as revealing the possibilities and challenges the translation process offers in different linguistic and cultural spaces worldwide.
Das Werk behandelt die bisher dogmatisch kaum durchdrungene Thematik der Leitung der Gesellschafterversammlung im Personengesellschaftsrecht. Es gibt einen umfassenden Überblick über die Person des Versammlungsleiters, die Möglichkeiten seiner Bestellung und Abwahl, die Zulässigkeit von Mehrheitsentscheidungen, das Eingreifen von Stimmverboten sowie die Begründung eines Sonderrechts. Es beleuchtet die Kompetenzen des Versammlungsleiters, insbesondere die Beschlussfeststellung im personengesellschaftsrechtlichen Beschlussmängelsystem. Darüber hinaus diskutiert es die Stellung des Versammlungsleiters, das Letztentscheidungsrecht der Gesellschafter sowie Haftungs- und Rechtsschutzfragen bei Leitungsfehlern in Bezug auf die Gesellschaft wie auch die Gesellschafter.
Concepts and Conversations
Edited by Daniel G. Krutka, Annie McMahon Whitlock and Mark Helmsing
Keywords in the Social Studies: Concepts and Conversations takes words commonly used in social studies education and unsettles them in ways that will redefine the field for years to come. Throughout the book, leading and emerging scholars in social studies education experiment with keywords central to the field seen as either taken for granted, such as family and technology, or perennially contested, such as terrorism and freedom, offering readers new positions, approaches, and orientations to what is possible to teach in the social studies. Focusing on democratic ways of living and being in the world as citizens, this innovative collection offers chapters organized around twenty-six keywords and ten invited responses to survey the unsettled terrain we call "the social studies." Each chapter attends to a specific keyword selected for both its contemporary applicability to different aspects of K-12 social studies education and to its dominant presence in the curriculum thought that structures social studies education in classrooms, museums, and beyond. Drawing inspiration from Raymond Williams’ work on keywords in culture, over fifty authors discuss complex and contested components of each keyword by way of offering diverse accounts that range from autobiographical narratives to historical genealogies, from critical implications of specific curriculum texts to offering vignettes of classroom teaching that deploy a keyword concept in practice. Keywords in the Social Studies is timely and essential reading for graduate students and faculty in social studies education and curriculum studies; students and teacher candidates in undergraduate and graduate education courses; and practitioners teaching in schools, museums, and other spaces of learning.
