Описание: In Beyond Schools: Muḥammad b. Ibrāhīm al-Wazīrʼs (d. 840/1436) Epistemology of Ambiguity, Damaris Wilmers provides the first extensive analysis of Ibn al-Wazīrʼs thought and its role in the "Sunnisation of the Zaydiyya", emphasizing its significance for conflicts between schools of thought and law beyond the Yemeni context. Contrasting Ibn al-Wazīrʼs works with those of his Zaydi contemporary Aḥmad b. Yaḥyā b. al-Murtaḍā, Damaris Wilmers offers a study of a number of heretofore unedited texts from 9th/15th century Yemen when Zaydi identity was challenged by an increasing theological and legal diversity. She shows how Ibn al-Wazīr, who has been classed with different schools, actually de-emphasized school affiliation and developed an integrative approach based on a unique theory of knowledge.
A Publishers Weekly Top 10 History Title for the season
A revelatory work in the tradition of Claudia Rankine's Citizen, DaMaris Hill's searing and powerful narrative-in-verse bears witness to American women of color burdened by incarceration.
"It is costly to stay free and appear / sane."
From Harriet Tubman to Assata Shakur, Ida B. Wells to Sandra Bland and Black Lives Matter, black women freedom fighters have braved violence, scorn, despair, and isolation in order to lodge their protests. In A Bound Woman Is a Dangerous Thing, DaMaris Hill honors their experiences with at times harrowing, at times hopeful responses to her heroes, illustrated with black-and-white photographs throughout.
For black American women, the experience of being bound has taken many forms: from the bondage of slavery to the Reconstruction-era criminalization of women; from the brutal constraints of Jim Crow to our own era's prison industrial complex, where between 1980 and 2014, the number of incarcerated women increased by 700%.* For those women who lived and died resisting the dehumanization of confinement--physical, social, intellectual--the threat of being bound was real, constant, and lethal.
In A Bound Woman Is a Dangerous Thing, Hill presents bitter, unflinching history that artfully captures the personas of these captivating, bound yet unbridled African-American women. Hill's passionate odes to Zora Neale Hurston, Lucille Clifton, Fannie Lou Hamer, Grace Jones, Eartha Kitt, and others also celebrate the modern-day inheritors of their load and light, binding history, author, and reader in an essential legacy of struggle.

Описание: Excerpt from Damaris: A Novel UT of the dim beginnings of things, from amongst confused and shifting shadow-pic tures, emerged the composed, sprightly, light-stepping figure of Henrietta Pereira. Beholding it, Damaris fell over head and ears in love. She was then five years old. Whereupon her baby soul, breaking free of the chrysalid stage, spread its little wings and she became consciously and actively human. The date of Damaris' second birth was late in March, 1864. The scene of it, a massive, square built, ochre-coloured house in north-west India, the windows of whose many lofty rooms opened on to broad, arcaded verandahs as to the ground ﬂoor, and galleries as to the ﬂoor above.

Описание: Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject Communications - Movies and Television, grade: 1,7, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, course: Cultural Studies, language: English, abstract: The story of "Breakfast at Tiffany's" is well known: Holly, a young glamour girl, tries to find her way in New York City, relying on the favor of male benefactors who give her "powder-room change", while at the same time she keeps chasing her dream of marrying a rich millionaire. Paul Varjak, a young writer, falls in love with her and tries to convince her to settle down with him. The movie has become a crucial cultural reference. But before the film, there was a source text: a novella by the same title, written by Truman Capote and published in 1958. The film adaption was made only three years later, by director Blake Edwards, scriptwriter George Axelrod and the producers Martin Jurow and Richard Shepherd. Those who have read Capote's novella and have seen the film usually complain about huge difference between the two - and they undoubtedly have a point. However, adaptation studies have far too long concentrated on the issue of fidelity alone, implying that a story could just be projected on the screen without having to undergo change. But film and literature are two very different mediums and thus, in the process of an adaptation, transformation must occur. There is no need for proving that book and film are different - this has been discussed many times before and can be read in a great number of critical reviews. But there is much more to adaptation studies than a simple fidelity analysis. What I intend to do is to find out why book and film differ crucially in many points in order to prove that in spite of sharing (at least in big part) the same characters, the same setting, important parts of the story, key motifs and even often the same dialogues, the novella Breakfast at Tiffany's and the film based on it actually tell very different stories with very different, even

Описание: Borrowing is quite clearly a component of language growth. As a result, it is a continuous process. Once the words are borrowed, adaptation strategies are applied to allow the borrowed lexicon fit into the phonological and morphological structures of the recipient language. Every language whose speakers have had contact with another or other languages cannot be completely free of borrowed forms. G?k?y? language has had long contact with English and Kiswahili from early last century. As a result, G?k?y? has borrowed a lot from the two languages. This book explores the various phonological and morphological strategies applied by speakers of G?-G?ch?g? dialect of G?k?y? language in borrowing words from English and Kiswahili. To do this, the book applies Source-Similarity model, one of the most recent strands of Optimality Theory. This model exploits loanword specific faithfulness constraints that impose maximal similarity between the perceived source form and its corresponding spoken loanword. The book is written with a wide spectrum audience in mind as reference material ranging from High School students, undergraduate and post graduate students.

Описание: Our media options have increased and evolved more in the last decade then over the last century. This evolution affects all aspects of our lives and, more specifically, has forever altered how consumers interact with the brands vying for their attention on all types of media outlets. In today's world, a brand cannot just preserve the status quo but must be positioned correctly within a tumultuous world of options for both advertisers and consumers. One of the big questions for a brand manager is whether to place the brand inside content that's created exclusively with the brand in mind? This is the idea behind Branded Entertainment (BE). It is not product placement but a concept where brands and solid, entertaining content become truly intertwined. This book provides a thorough and practical understanding of the BE business including when it makes sense and when it doesn't. It explains the roles and thought process of all parties involved in a potential deal: the brands, the networks, the content producers, and the ad/marketing agencies. Branded Entertainment outlines the many different scenarios that could surface in these arrangements depending on who leads a deal and who accepts production costs. It summarizes the do's and don'ts of this business and gives the reader a checklist of things to keep in mind when at the deal table.
