ConspiraCity New York
ConspiraCity New York
Die Stadt der Moderne, für Amerika paradigmatisch New York, war nicht nur Schauplatz vielfältiger gesellschaftlicher, poltischer und künstlerischer Transformationsprozesse: Sie ist ambivalentes Symbol urbaner Modernität. Das moderne Genre des Stadtromans setzt sich auf komplexe und kritische Weise mit dieser Stadt als realem Ort, als Erfahrungshintergrund und als Symbol auseinander und vermittelt mit realistischen wie experimentellen Erzählstrategien die Vorstellung einer allgemeingültigen Großstadterfahrung. Für die Postmoderne allerdings ist das Postulat allgegenwärtig, die Stadt "verschwinde aus dem Blick", in realer wie in symbolischer Weise - und das, obwohl die Großstadt zum dominanten Lebensort geworden ist. Die vorliegende Studie setzt sich mit diesem Paradox auseinander und zeigt, dass ,Stadt' - stellvertretend in New York-Literatur - auch heute allgegenwärtig ist. Der Gegenwartsroman setzt sich auf verschiedenen Ebenen mit gattungsmäßigen Vorgaben des Stadtromans auseinander und stellt dessen Anspruch auf "Überblick", auf ein Durchdringen der großstädtischen Komplexität und deren eindeutige Interpretation nachhaltig in Frage. Textanalysen von Romanen u.a. von Bret Easton Ellis, Siri Hustvedt, Colson Whitehead und Paul Auster zeigen, dass ein Blick von oben, den der erzählerische Überblick des klassischen Stadtromans voraussetzt, auf naturalisierten ideologischen Prämissen beruht, die nun hinterfragt werden. New York als Ort dieser Texte ist eine ConspiraCity, eine verschwörerische Stadt, in der - im Negativen wie im Positiven - Übersicht als Illusion erscheint.

This volume explores modes of urban representations that focus on the visual and on movement, both in the media of literature and film, as well as in discourses of migration, tourism and social movements. The collection of essays thus addresses the visual both in its materiality, as in architecture, art, film, photography, and in the imagination, as in literature and writing in general. Urban spaces are conceptualized as potential contact zones for different ethnic and social groups which, increasingly, are not necessarily characterized by a territory of their own, but are often translocal, discontinuous, displaced, and displacing. The essays investigate the tensions between various kinds of hybrid texts about New York City whose simultaneity is an articulation of the "creative energy" of city life. They are a contribution to the analysis of the cultural work of contemporary urban fiction, film, and other urban discourses.

Die “Breve relación” des Pedro Ponce de León
Die “Breve relación” des Pedro Ponce de León
Der kolonialzeitlichliche Bericht Breve relación de los dioses y ritos de la gentilidad des Priesters Pedro Ponce de León wurde bereits 1792 von Antonio de León y Gama zitiert, und seither hat es immer wieder Autoren gegeben, etwa Alfredo López Austin, Pedro Carrasco Pizana oder Serge Gruzinski, die einzelne Informationen aus diesen Aufzeichnungen Ponces für ihre unterschiedlichen Untersuchungen nutzten. Doch bis heute gibt es keine quellenkritische Untersuchung der Abhandlung, niemand hat sich die Mühe gemacht, das einzige bekannte Werk des Priesters Ponce als Ganzes zu betrachten, Aufbau und Inhalt zu analysieren und die Frage zu stellen, wann und vor welchem Hintergrund es geschrieben wurde. Es gibt keine Informationen über mögliche Quellen, die Ponce nutzte, genausowenig wurde die Frage gestellt, welche Realität die kurze Abhandlung über Götter und Riten beschreibt und zu welchem Zweck sie geschrieben wurde. Ähnlich steht es mit dem Autor. Wer war Pedro Ponce de León? Die wenigen Schriften, die ihn erwähnen, tun dies in zwei bis drei mageren Sätzen. Dabei wird meist lediglich die Tatsache erwähnt, dass er Priester im zentralmexikanischen Zumpahuacán war – eine Information, die aus der Firmierung der Abhandlung zu entnehmen ist. Es werden – jedesmal andere – Angaben über seine Aufenthaltsdauer in Zumpahuacán oder sein Alter gemacht und es wird oft eine – höchstwahrscheinlich falsche – Aussage über seine ethnische Zugehörigkeit getroffen. Mit dieser Arbeit will ich diese Defizite so weit wie möglich beseitigen. Ich ermittle Informationen über das Leben Ponces aus allen 815verfügbaren Quellen und widerlege falsche Angaben in der Literatur, wobei die Quellenlage diesem Vorhaben leider Grenzen setzt. Auch bezüglich des Werkes werde ich über die spärlichen Angaben in der Literatur hinaus die Informationen substantiell erweitern und vertiefen. Diese Arbeit wird zum ersten Mal eine vollständige Untersuchung der Breve relación liefern. Zum einen werde ich die Geschichte des Dokuments rein äußerlich untersuchen, zum anderen eine inhaltliche Analyse durchführen, die auch der Frage nachgehen soll, wie tief das Verständnis des Autors bezüglich der von ihm beschriebenen religiösen Praktiken war.
Effects of Syntactic Complexity and Prosody on Sentence Processing in Noise
Effects of Syntactic Complexity and Prosody on Sentence Processing in Noise
Which processing mechanisms are involved when we listen to sentences in acoustically unfavorable situations such as loud background noise? Answering this question is important for understanding communicative difficulties in hearing impaired populations. Such difficulties may cover a variety of sources. This book systematically investigates the interaction of speech perception in noise, syntactic complexity, as well as the differential influences of noise on the processing of morpho-syntactic and prosodic cues from a psycholinguistic perspective. The investigation comprises of a series of reaction time and electrophysiological studies. The basic assumption is that—at least in German—segmental morpho-syntactic cues such as case, number, and gender marking do not provide reliable information in noise, as they typically occur in prosodically weak and thus perceptually unfavorable positions. Suprasegmental prosodic information such as intonational phrases and phrase boundaries, by contrast, may be more reliable in noise, as they remain available over a longer period of time. Syntactic complexity is demonstrated to interact with sentence processing in noise. Sentence parts of complex structures that constitute a difficulty on the processor are affected more strongly by a noise masker than easier parts. This finding is related to an additional cognitive strain: The cognitive capacity of individual listeners becomes increasingly important, as resources have to be reallocated. This holds especially for complex sentences which increase the cognitive load, and which are presented in noise: Since the extraction from the speech signal from a noisy background also requires cognitive load (listening effort), the combination leads to a cognitive overload. Complex sentences that heavily rely on prosodic information for correct interpretation do not seem to be affected by noise as much as sentences relying on segmental morpho-syntactic cues. Although noise slows down processing, it does not interact with the structure of these prosodically disambiguated structures. A prosodic benefit is proposed, in the sense that both the fundamental frequency and the rhythmic structure remain reliable cues in unmodulated, stationary noise. Intonational phrase boundaries may facilitate chunking, which relieves the cognitive load. Electrophysiological evidence supports this assumption. This psycholinguistic investigation of processing different complex (German) sentence structures relying on different perceptual cue8c1s provides a clearer view on the underlying mechanisms and strategies used when processing occurs in acoustically difficult listening situations. Generally, listeners tend to use whatever cues are available for correct interpretation and possibly neglect less important or redundant information. If bottom-up processes become unreliable, top-down processes gain importance. If the latter are misleading (e.g., in case of improbable non-canonical word orders), then comprehension is seriously reduced. The findings presented here have implications not only for current psycholinguistic models of speech perception, but also for the fields of speech audiometry and cognitive hearing research.

Time Series Analysis in Meteorology and Climatology Duchon, C: Time Series Analysis in Meteorology
Time Series Analysis in Meteorology and Climatology Duchon, C: Time Series Analysis in Meteorology
Time Series Analysis in Meteorology and Climatology provides an accessible overview of this notoriously difficult subject. Clearly structured throughout, the authors develop sufficient theoretical foundation to understand the basis for applying various analytical methods to a time series and show clearly how to interpret the results. Taking a unique approach to the subject, the authors use a combination of theory and application to real data sets to enhance student understanding throughout the book. This book is written for those students that have a data set in the form of a time series and are confronted with the problem of how to analyse this data. Each chapter covers the various methods that can be used to carry out this analysis with coverage of the necessary theory and its application. In the theoretical section topics covered include; the mathematical origin of spectrum windows, leakage of variance and understanding spectrum windows. The applications section includes real data sets for students to analyse. Scalar variables are used for ease of understanding for example air temperatures, wind speed and precipitation. Students are encouraged to write their own computer programmes and data sets are provided to enable them to recognize quickly whether their programme is working correctly- one data set is provided with artificial data and the other with real data where the students are required to physically interpret the results of their periodgram analysis. Based on the acclaimed and long standing course at the University of Oklahoma, the book is distinct in its approach to the subject matter in that it is written specifically for readers in meteorology and climatology and uses a mix of theory and application to real data sets.

Image Processing (Texture)
Image Processing (Texture)
Self-contained text covering practical image processing methods and theory for image texture analysis. Techniques for the analysis of texture in digital images are essential to a range of applications in areas as diverse as robotics, defence, medicine and the geo-sciences. In biological vision, texture is an important cue allowing humans to discriminate objects. This is because the brain is able to decipher important variations in data at scales smaller than those of the viewed objects. In order to deal with texture in digital data, many techniques have been developed by image processing researchers. With a wholly practical approach and many worked examples, Image Processing: Dealing with Texture is a comprehensive guide to these techniques, including chapters on mathematical morphology, fractals, Markov random fields, Gabor functions and wavelets. Structured around a series of questions and answers, enabling readers to easily locate information on specific problems, this book also: * provides detailed descriptions of methods used to analyse binary as well as grey texture images * presents information on two levels: an easy-to-follow narrative explaining the basics, and an advanced, in-depth study of mathematical theorems and concepts * looks at 'good' and 'bad' image processing practice, with wrongly designed algorithms illustrating 'what not to do' * includes accompanying website, setting out all algorithms discussed within the text. An ideal self-teaching aid for senior undergraduate and Masters students taking courses in image processing and pattern recognition, this book is also an ideal reference for PhD students, electrical and biomedical engineers, mathematicians, and informatics researchers designing image processing applications.
