Edited by Ewa Wojno-Owczarska

Dieser Band ist das Ergebnis der wissenschaftlichen Auseinandersetzung mit den Problemen unserer Zeit, die durch die Globalisierungsfolgen geprägt ist. Im Zentrum der Beiträge stehen die Reflexion über die Bedeutung des kulturellen Erbes, der Geisteswissenschaften, der nationalen Geschichte und der historischen Erinnerungsorte. So wird Alexander von Humboldt in der Literatur des 21. Jahrhunderts als Vorreiter des globalen Denkens und Erkunder der Welttopographie gewürdigt. Die Autoren der Beiträge reflektieren die Polyvalenz moderner Identitäten im globalen Raum. Sie diskutieren den Begriff „Weltliteratur", literarische Topoi der Mehrsprachigkeit und die Umsetzung von politischen und weiteren globalen Krisen in Literatur und Kunst.

Education, Globalisation and the State

Essays in Honour of Roger Dale

Series:

Edited by Xavier Bonal, Eve Coxon, Mario Novelli and Antoni Verger

This book pays tribute to an intellectual giant. The twenty-one succinct chapters comprising the volume, and the variety of scholars who have authored them, are indicative of his intellectual, geographical and intergenerational reach. These chapters reflect the towering influence of Roger Dale’s work in fields such as the Sociology of Education, Globalization and Education Policy Studies, and Comparative and International Education. While engaging critically with Roger’s intellectual ideas – and without exception the authors demonstrate the significance of these to their own theoretical and research endeavors - they also include personal reflections on his role as mentor, role model, networker, and friend. Together the chapters are testimony to the richness, quality and diversity of Roger Dale’s work and the extent to which it has inspired several generations of scholars from very different world locations. In a final chapter, Roger Dale himself responds from his usual humble position to all contributors and reviews the key aspects of an exceptional and ongoing intellectual journey.

High School Latinx Counternarratives

Experiences in School and Post-graduation

Series:

Juan A. Ríos Vega

This book represents an ethnographic study of the experiences and counternarratives of twelve Latinx young adults. All of the participants in this study are first generation immigrants to the United States, representing different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds and immigration statuses. Drawing from Latino Critical Theory (LatCrit) and Queers of Color Epistemologies as a theoretical framework, this book analyzes the personal experiences of Latinx during and after finishing high school. This book uses a classroom project (dialogue journals) to reconnect with twelve former English language learners (ELLs) from the Southeast after ten years. Through the use of dialogue journals as an English as a second language (ESL) strategy to support writing, the participants in this book document personal and communal experiences as Latinx immigrants in the United States. This book will represent an excellent asset for teachers, school administrators, counselors, staff, preservice teachers, practicing educators, graduate students, scholars, and policymakers.

John Michael Weaver and Benjamin T. Johnson

This study turned the tables on a conventional understanding of the four instruments of national power (diplomacy, information, military and economic measures/D.I.M.E.) to see how potential adversaries could use these against the national security interests of Canada and the United States. Moreover, this particular work focuses on qualitative research regarding cyber threats that have continually beleaguered these nations by malevolent actors mostly over the last five years. This study also affords consideration to how nefarious individuals, non-state actors, or nation states can implement the instruments of national power through the application of a new model named the York Intelligence Red Team Model-Cyber (YIRTM-C) using sources guided by the Federal Qualitative Secondary Data Case Study Triangulation Model to arrive at results.

Economía del pájaro en tiempos de guerra

Comunicación y disenso en la poesía de Eduardo Milán

Series:

Pablo López Carballo

La obra de Eduardo Milán se ha convertido, en los últimos años, en uno de los referentes indiscutibles a la hora de hablar de poesía en español. Su grado de difusión e influencia, a ambos lados del Atlántico, explica que el estudio de la propuesta estética de este autor ocupe un lugar destacado en las investigaciones académicas sobre el hecho poético. En este contexto, el presente libro tiene como principal objetivo proponer un acercamiento crítico a su obra para tratar de comprender el alcance y relevancia de la misma. Ya desde las primeras aproximaciones a su obra, ha quedado patente el hecho de que la escritura de Eduardo Milán trabaja desde la conciencia del abismo que separa el lenguaje y la realidad. Por ello, el primer interrogante al que debe hacerse frente es el de cómo aborda el poeta tal abismo, para así lograr dar cuenta de las problemáticas que ello genera en su poesía. En segundo lugar, ha sido necesario buscar ejes analíticos que permitieran mostrar esos conflictos de modo sistemático. Por esto mismo, la comunicación y el disenso, entendidos por el poeta de modo particular, son los dos núcleos principales del acercamiento. La estructuración planteada aquí no es un punto de partida, sino más bien un camino recorrido, una estructura flexible, abierta e inclusiva. En efecto, en la tarea de abordar una obra que ya inicialmente presenta una clara ausencia de tematización explícita, inestabilidad formal y disposición al cambio se ha hecho indispensable tomar una dirección que permita establecer una pauta de estudio y organización de los resultados.
