»Letzte Rose des Sommers«
»Letzte Rose des Sommers«
Er war Erins Barde schlechthin - Thomas Moore, dessen Liedersammlung 'Irish Melodies' auf der Grünen Insel bis heute populär geblieben ist, ob's nun um das 'Tal von Avoca' geht oder um das berühmteste Lied des Dichters, die 'Letzte Rose des Sommers'. Fast drei Jahrzehnte lang hat Thomas Moore an dieser Edition gearbeitet, für die er Stoffe aus Irlands Vergangenheit, doch ebenso aus der neueren Geschichte aufgriff und, versehen mit altüberlieferten Melodien, neu faßte: so, wie es - eine Generation zuvor - Robert Burns in Schottland getan hatte. Dabei hatte der Poet seine irische Heimat schon relativ früh verlassen: 1799 war er nach England gegangen, wo er gleich mit seinem ersten Lyrikband Aufsehen erregte und - den jugendlichen Genius Lord Byron zum Dichten inspirierte. Nach dem frühen Tod Byrons verfaßte er dann die Biographie des Freundes. Doch nicht nur mit seinen 'Irish Melodies' trat Thomas Moore hervor. Er war ein Meister der ironisch-satirischen 'light verses', wie u. a. seine 'Briefe aus dem Stadtpostkasten' zeigen. Und seine orientalische Erzählung 'Lalla Rookh' wurde 1817 ein europaweit gefeierter Bestseller. Bemerkenswert aber auch sein zehn Jahre später entstandener religiös-philosophischer Roman 'Der Epikuräer'. In diesem Buch gibt Heiko Postma einen Einblick in das Leben des Autors und stellt eine reiche Auswahl aus dessen Werken vor. Alle Thomas-Moore-Texte sind dabei zweisprachig wiedergegeben: im englischen Original und in Heiko Postmas neuen Übersetzungen. Let Erin remember the days of old!
Transatlantic Crossings Between Paris and New York
Transatlantic Crossings Between Paris and New York
How was the question of black cultural difference and identity negotiated among and between black cultural and political organizations in Paris and Harlem? How were concepts of black cultural difference - the idea of what distiguished black expressive culture and what constituted the originality of a black aesthetic - absorbed and articulated by the white artistic avantgarde and the primitivist modernist styles and themes they created? How was knowledge about African culture and 'African otherness' visually represented in the discourse of French colonial ethnogr9ffaphy and colonial art? This study addresses the dynamics of transatlantic cultural exchange, concretely the international transfer and mediation of images and ideas about black culture in two artistic metropolises - New York and Paris - in the interwar years. These transatlantic crossings and the confluences are analyzed within a postcolonial framework, they are considered as responses to and as consequences of two related and hence intersecting formations of power: racism and colonialism and their political, social, epistemological and finally, cultural dimensions in the United States and France. Proceeding from the historical significance of race, this study links up the discourses of primitivist modernism, jazz, Africanist ethnography and art, the Harlem Renaissance and Négritude, a complex and ambivalent connection neglected until recently in contemporary scholarship.
O, Brave Fat World
O, Brave Fat World
This slender volume is based on the presentations given at the symposium "Cultural Aspects of Overweight and Obesity in the U.S.A.," on November 28, 2003, at the Philipps- Universität Marburg. As Time magazine reported recently, the width of new seats in a Colorado theater were enlarged from 17 inches - the regular size as recommended by the American Institute of Architects - to 22 inches because of Americans' growing girth. A similar enlargement was suggested for the New York subway when the rigid plastic seats proved too narrow for an increasing number of people. These apparently trivial facts point to the growing prevalence of overweight and obesity in Americans which has become a serious problem for the American health system as obesity increases the risk of developing heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other diseases with a concomitant increase in costs. Although eating is a biological necessity, food habits are also cultural phenomena embedded in, and determined by, a given society; accordingly, the symposium focused on an approach which addresses the interrelationships between cultural, literary, and psychological aspects of overweight and obesity. The introduction by Ingrid Thaler presents some background information on definitions and statistics, Angelique A. Sallas's paper discusses American cultural contradictions, Diana von Finck analyzes the portrayal of overweight and obesity in selected American literary texts, Sylvia Titze reports on physical activity and obesity, Sabine Trenk- Hinterberger proposes psychoanalytical explanations for the phenomenon. The epilogue interprets literary representations of Thanksgiving in the context of American national identity. It is hoped that the papers will open new perspectives for American Cultural Studies. I am happy to acknowledge the pleasant cooperation of the contributors as well as the help of my secretary, Waltraud Nau, and my research assistant, Ingrid Thaler, in preparing, harmonizing, and finalizing the typescript and the bibliographical notations. Further, I extend warm thanks to Angelique A. Sallas for going over the English versions with a finetooth comb.
Children's Books and Child Readers
Children's Books and Child Readers
This volume is the outcome of a combined international effort of scholars from Germany, Austria, Italy, South Africa and Russia working on childrens literature in English. The individual studies aim at a critical evaluation of "imagined" children and their changing worlds and cultures as transformed, debated and nego925tiated in literary discourse. The contributors study the fascinating ways in which ideology and aesthetics work together artistically to produce meaning for children and adults alike, if sometimes in different ways. The texts chosen move on from Victorian to Edwardian, postmodern and postcolonial. They includc Mary and Charles Lamb's Mrs. Leicester 's School, Evelyn Sharps fairy tales, Thomas Hughess Tom Brown's Schooldays, Rudyard Kiplings Stalky & Co., G.K. Chestertons poems for children and his fairy tales, Edith Nesbits Five Children and It, Kenneth Grahames The Wind in the Willows, J.R.R. Tolkiens The Hobbit, Enid Blyton's school stories, J.K. Rowlings Harry Potter series, contemporary childrens fiction by Joan Aiken, Diana Wynne Iones, Anne Fine, Roald Dahl, Philip Pullman, Gerard Whelan and David Almond and, importantly enough, South African childrens books as a tradition which is marginal to the British mainstream. As a general theoretical concept and methodological frame for the volume the term 'construction' has been chosen. Proceeding from the assumption that our notions of childhood are shaped by philosophical, educational, psychological, social, cultural and religious preconceptions, childhood in children's books is seen as constructed both by general discourses and by text features particular to individual works, such as language, plot, protagonists, the implied reader and, last but not least, illustrations.

Investigative Psychology
Investigative Psychology
This ground-breaking text is the first to provide a detailed overview of Investigative Psychology, from the earliest work through to recent studies, including descriptions of previously unpublished internal reports. Crucially it provides a framework for students to explore this exciting terrain, combining Narrative Theory and an Action Systems framework. It includes empirically tested models for Offender Profiling and guidance for investigations, as well as an agenda for research in Investigative Psychology. Investigative Psychology features: * The full range of crimes from fraud to terrorism, including burglary, serial killing, arson, rape, and organised crime * Important methodologies including multi-dimensional scaling and the Radex approach as well as Social Network Analysis * Geographical Offender Profiling, supported by detailed analysis of the underlying psychological processes that make this such a valuable investigative decision support tool * The full range of investigative activities, including effective information collection, detecting deception and the development of decision support systems. In effect, this text introduces an exciting new paradigm for a wide range of psychological contributions to all forms of investigation within and outside of law enforcement. Each chapter has actual cases and quotations from offenders and ends with questions for discussion and research, making this a valuable text for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Applied and Forensic Psychology, Criminology, Socio-Legal Studies and related disciplines.
Asymptote
Asymptote
Asymptote, an award-winning New York City -- based architectural firm, expands the boundaries of traditional architectural practice with work that ranges from buildings and urban design to computer-generated environments. Recognized internationally as both leading-edge architects and virtual-reality artists as well as sought-after critics and teachers, Asymptote partners Lise Anne Couture and Hani Rashid have emphasized research into cultural trends and technological influences as the core of their practice. The firm has completed or is overseeing projects around the world, with commissions as diverse as a trading floor for the New York Stock Exchange; a multimedia research park in Kyoto, Japan; a modular furniture system for the Knoll furniture company; a music theater in Graz, Austria; and a new center for art and technology for the Guggenheim Museum in SoHo, New York. Designed and written by the partners, Asymptote is the first book to fully document their "real world" (as opposed to virtual) projects.In mathematical terms, the word "asymptote" is defined as a line that a given curve gets closer and closer to, but never touches, as it gets further from the origin towards infinity. In architectural terms, Asymptote is the Manhattan-based architectural design and research practice established by Lise Anne Couture and Hani Rashid in 1989.Rashid and Couture's work is intriguing because it draws inspiration from a wide range of sources not traditionally associated with architecture -- among them the design of airline interiors, sporting equipment, and organic systems like seashells and honeycombs; and various means of communicating and disseminating information. Their projects areconcerned as much with light, speed, and traversing virtual boundaries as with "real-world" geometries and building systems. Hani Rashid is one of the founding instructors in the "paperless studio" curriculum at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, a progra
