Описание: She was 17-years-old on a Christmas Eve flight 40 years ago to join her father for Christmas when the unimaginable happened. The Lockheed L-188A Electra, on the way from Lima to Pucallpa, flew directly into a thunderstorm. A strike of lightning left the plane incinerated and Juliane Diller (Koepcke) still strapped to her plane seat falling through the night air two miles above the Earth.Her survival is unexplainable and considered a modern day miracle. Her mother was among the 91 dead and Juliane the sole survivor. For eleven days she crawls and walks alone through the jungle, fighting for her survival again with hunger and despair her only companions as maggots eat their way into her wounds. Juliane ultimately survives and goes on to live an inspiring life as a scientist continually drawn back to the terrain that threatened to take her. On the 40th anniversary she shares not only the private moments of her survival and rescue but her life in the wake of the disaster.

Описание: Examines the moments in the modern history of Myanmar when religion, culture, and politics converge to chart new directions. Arguing against Max Weber`s characterization of Buddhism as other-worldly and divorced from politics, this study shows that Buddhist practice necessitates public validation within an economy of merit in which moral action earns future rewards.

In recent years, debates surrounding the concept of art have focused in particular on installation art, as its diverse manifestations have proven to be incompatible with the modern idea of aesthetic autonomy. Defenders of aesthetic modernism repudiated installation-based work as no longer autonomous art, whereas advocates of aesthetic postmodernism abandoned the concept of aesthetic autonomy altogether. Juliane Rebentisch asserts that installation art does not, as is often assumed, dispute aesthetic autonomy per se, and rather should be understood as calling for a fundamental revision of this very concept. Aesthetics of Installation Art thus proposes a new understanding of art as well as of its ethical and political dimension.

Описание: Translation is one of the most important cross-linguistic and cross-cultural practices. This short introduction focuses on what you need to know about it: the different perspectives on translation and key issues such as equivalence in translation, translation evaluation, and the role of translation in language teaching, globalization, and intercultural communication.
Описание: Following the events of September 11, 2001, American Muslims found themselves under unprecedented scrutiny. Muslim communities in the United States suffered from negative representations of their religion, but they also experienced increased interest in aspects of their faith and cultures. They seized the opportunity to shape the intellectual contribution of American Muslims to contemporary Muslim thought as never before. Muslim women in particular—often assumed to be silenced, oppressed members of their own communities—challenged stereotypes through their writing, seeking to express what it means to be a Muslim woman in America and carrying out intra-Muslim debates about gender roles and women’s participation in society. Hammer looks at the work of significant female American Muslim writers, scholars, and activists, using their writings as a lens for a larger discussion of Muslim intellectual production in America and beyond. Centered on the controversial women-led Friday prayer in March 2005, Hammer uses this event and its aftermath to address themes of faith, community, and public opinion. Tracing the writings of American Muslim women since 1990, the author covers an extensive list of authors, including Amina Wadud, Leila Ahmed, Asma Barlas, Riffat Hassan, Mohja Kahf, Azizah al-Hibri, Asra Normani, and Asma Gull Hasan. Hammer deftly examines each author’s writings, demonstrating that the debates that concern American Muslim women are at the heart of modern Muslim debates worldwide. While gender is the catalyst for Hammer’s study, her examination of these women’s intellectual output touches on themes central to contemporary Islam: authority, tradition, Islamic law, justice, and authenticity.

Описание: Seminar paper from the year 2012 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Potsdam (Institut f r Anglistik und Amerikanistik), language: English, abstract: In Renaissance, the magus, the adept of natural magic, was considered a powerful man. He was not only aware of natural, mystical and magical phenomena but also of the "innate ideas within the mens", which is the "intuitive, suprarational faculty within the soul". He was seen as the good and white magician. Many scholars and intellectuals were either engaged in magic or at least knew about it. In the 16th and 17th century many writers, like Shakespeare and Marlowe, adopted the figure of the white or black magician in their works. In William Shakespeare's "The Tempest" the main character is Prospero, who is a powerful magician, too. He uses his magical powers to govern all events on the island and wants to leave nothing to chance. In doing so he uses different tools for magical support. He is a master of a learned art which enables him to use magical equipment like books, a staff or a magic garment. Moreover he commands natural spirits to play out a mimesis, which makes nothing on the island what it seems to be. Nevertheless, all of these actions follow a higher moral function. Prospero's morality is shattered after the usurpation and betrayal of his brother. With the help of the power that he has on the island, he wants to "purge the evil from the inhabitants of his world and restore them to goodness" (Egan 175). In this process he is often very short-sighted and so he mistakes his powers with godliness and humanity with goodness. This paper wants to examine Prospero, the magus and thus asks the question, whether this figure depicts the natural magus of Renaissance times. Elementary to this examination is the assumption that Renaissance magic is real magic. People then considered their magic, miracles, spirits etc. real and not a trick. Thus when I speak about R

Описание: This book is for students of translation, interpretation, linguistics and languages who would like to enhance their understanding of the relationship between these areas of study. More specifically, the book attempts to capture the quintessence or the epitome embodied in the concepts of translation and globalization. It also attempts to bridge the gap between the globalizing and globalized worlds. It brings to light the diversity of areas in globalization and aspects of translation that have impacted the notions of cultural communication, translator’s code of ethics, metaphorical meaning, code switching, media, etc. Scholars from different parts of the world contributed to this book, representing countries such as the US, Canada, Germany, Portugal, Switzerland, Belgium, Austria, Tunisia, Bahrain, Jordan, and United Arab Emirates. Those scholars have done their research in their home countries on other parts of the world. Because of this diversity, the editors believe this book genuinely offers an international experience.Thirteen chapters cover different aspects of globalization in relation to translation. Areas covered include, but are not limited to, faces of globalization, English as the world’s most prestigious language in its role as a global lingua franca, ELF as a threat to multilingualism, on-line resources designed for trainee and practicing interpreters, translation as a paradigm, and aspects of literary translation.Each chapter provides a blend of theory and practice, and a demonstration on how globalization impacted the profession and the notion of cultural communication. Examples are drawn from English, Arabic, French and other languages. This book can be used as a reference book, and it can also be used at both graduate and undergraduate levels.

Описание: (M)Other Tongues: Literary Reflexions on a Difficult Distinction examines a key problem of literary criticism: the differentiation between languages is at the same time necessary and impossible. It is indispensable in order to read a text, yet literary texts are precisely those that question this distinction, articulating the link between languages and cultures, as well as the inherent strangeness of even one’s own mother tongue.(M)Other Tongues explores texts from the 16th century to the 21st century, focusing on different aspects of one main feature of literary texts: formally, as well as semantically, they transcend the rules and conventions of the language they speak. Crossing cultural borders is commonly discussed in historical, social, linguistic, and psychoanalytical terms – whether it be as (post-)colonialism, exilic or diasporic identities, creoles, or the displaced other within the own. (M)Other Tongues argues that, rather than being mere evidence in the theoretical analysis of cultural transitions, literary texts are a unique medium to reflect such processes as they challenge and modify the notion of language itself.The book discusses texts written mainly in English, French, and German, but also in Spanish and the complex formerly known as Yugoslavian. (M)Other Tongues shows that such distinctions between languages are precise since they can be exemplified with an indefinite number of words and rules, and still remain uncertain because they cannot be abstracted from these examples. What separates the mother tongue from other tongues is indeed precise uncertainty.
Описание: In der aktuellen Kontaktlinguistik wurden uberwiegend Sprachen in Kontakt betrachtet, die genetisch nicht verwandt und strukturell distant sind. Der vorliegende Sammelband setzt sich zum Ziel, mit einem Schwerpunkt im Bereich der romanischen und slavischen Sprachen die Bedeutung von bereits zu Beginn des Kontakts vorhandenen Effekten der strukturellen Kongruenz zwischen den beteiligten Sprachen zu beleuchten. Dabei spielen ererbte wie auch typologische Ahnlichkeiten eine Rolle.
