Edited by Gregory Castle, Alex Davis and Lee Jenkins

The Global Literary Modernisms series provides a platform for literary scholarship on modernism across genres and geographies. The concept of the global today carries with it new ideas about time and historical development, as well as new theories about national literary traditions and new models of social belonging that extend beyond national borders. Without sacrificing our interest in national traditions, we invite studies that link those traditions to more extensive global and transnational contexts. The series also invites studies that reconsider the temporalities and formal and aesthetic praxes of modernism—not only its historical development, but the peculiar rhythms and pacing of its narratives, its dramatic literatures, its poetry, its song. While respecting the contemporary elasticity of the term, this series understands modernism not simply as a synonym for the ‘modern’ but as a movement that responds to the modern wherever it finds it.

We invite English-language submissions on all aspects of literary modernism. Proposals are invited for monographs and edited volumes that engage transnational and postcolonial, canonical and marginal modernisms, and the legacies of modernism. We welcome single- and multiple-author studies from a variety of approaches and frameworks, literary-historical and/or theoretical.

A Toolkit for Creating a Winning Strategy

Betteke vanRuler and Frank Körver

Strategic development is one of the most daunting challenges that faces any professional, no matter the field. After all, stakes are high. Developing effective strategies can put you on the path to becoming a trusted advisor and a valued employee. The communication strategy framework introduced in this handbook has been designed to help professionals make targeted choices toward strategic communication. Taking an iterative approach and continually reflecting on whether your choices remain congruent enables you to continually adapt to changing circumstances while staying in command. Linear planning models are ineffective. Quick strategy development can revolutionize the communication function and strengthen the relationship amongst members of a professional team. Linking communication and business strategy is the number one challenge for today’s communication practitioners.

Many CEOs still view the communication department as no more than as a tactical entity providing outreach but little else. It is time to fundamentally rethink how strategic communication is developed and start using modern tools to do this. The communication strategy framework facilitates the communication professional to forcefully and efficiently make the right choices. It compels individuals to think about how communication can contribute to achieving the organization or client’s goals. As a result, it provides a clear picture of your communication strategy in one page by putting superfluous details aside and concentrating on the essentials. The communication strategy framework has proven to be an instant eye-opener for clients and other stakeholders. A best-seller amongst professionals in the Netherlands, it is available for the first time in English. This step-by-step guide to creating strategic communication will help communicators of all types- from professionals and clients to students and teachers!

Nach gegenwärtiger Rechtslage ist es grundsätzlich verboten, künstlich erzeugte Embryonen vor der Implantation genetisch zu untersuchen (Präimplantationsdiagnostik) und bei auffälligem Ergebnis zu verwerfen. Die genetische Untersuchung von Embryonen im Mutterleib (Pränataldiagnostik) ist demgegenüber umfassend zulässig und führt beim Vorliegen einer Erkrankung in der Praxis häufig zu einem Schwangerschaftsabbruch. Der Autor untersucht diesen scheinbaren Widerspruch aus verfassungsrechtlicher Perspektive. Da die Analyse zu dem Ergebnis kommt, dass die gegenwärtige Rechtslage nicht mit dem allgemeinen Gleichheitssatz und dem Recht auf Leben zu vereinbaren ist, werden abschließend Änderungsvorschläge entwickelt.
