Abstract

This biography examines the long life of the traveller and author Stephen Graham. Graham walked across large parts of the Tsarist Empire in the years before 1917, describing his adventures in a series of books and articles that helped to shape attitudes towards Russia in Britain and the United States. In later years he travelled widely across Europe and North America, meeting some of the best known writers of the twentieth century, including H.G. Wells and Ernest Hemingway. Graham also wrote numerous novels and biographies that won him a wide readership on both sides of the Atlantic. This book traces Graham’s career as a world traveller, and provides a rich portrait of English, Russian and American literary life in the first half of the twentieth century. It also examines how many aspects of his life and writing coincide with contemporary concerns, including the development of New Age spirituality and the rise of environmental awareness. The result is a fascinating portrait of a man who was for many years a significant literary figure on both sides of the Atlantic.

Abstract

Writing as Material Practice grapples with the issue of writing as a form of material culture in its ancient and more recent manifestations, and in the contexts of production and consumption. Fifteen case studies explore the artefactual nature of writing — the ways in which materials, techniques, colour, scale, orientation and visibility inform the creation of inscribed objects and spaces, as well as structure subsequent engagement, perception and meaning making. Covering a temporal span of some 5000 years, from c.3200 BCE to the present day, and ranging in spatial context from the Americas to the Near East, the chapters in this volume bring a variety of perspectives which contribute to both specific and broader questions of writing materialities. The authors also aim to place past graphical systems in their social contexts so they can be understood in relation to the people who created and attributed meaning to writing and associated symbolic modes through a diverse array of individual and wider social practices.

Abstract

Il est essentiel pour l'étudiant universitaire ou d'école supérieure d'être capable de repérer rapidement, de manière autonome et critique, des informations valides et de qualité.Basé sur plus de vingt ans d'expérience, ce manuel remplace le manuel "Lire et écrire la littérature scientifique" (Pochet, 2012) qui avait lui-même été construit par la fusion et la mise à jour des livres "Méthodologie documentaire. Rechercher, consulter, rédiger à l'heure d'Internet ?" (Pochet, 2005) et "La rédaction d'un article scientifique. Petit guide pratique adapté aux sciences appliquées et sciences de la vie à l'heure du libre accès" (Pochet, 2009).Les précédents manuels mettaient l'accent sur l'article scientifique, sur le double rôle, de lecteur et d'auteur, des utilisateurs de la littérature scientifique ainsi que sur la nécessité d'une recherche d'information méthodique.Ce manuel ajoute une dimension supplémentaire. Il se focalise sur une bonne compréhension des différents processus en jeux dans la diffusion de l'information scientifique.Les objectifs de cet ouvrage sont d'amener le lecteur, d'une part, à bien comprendre le fonctionnement de la littérature scientifique et ses processus et, d'autre part, maîtriser les méthodes de recherche d'information, de veille informationnelle, de tri, de sélection et d'organisation de l'information ainsi que les méthodes de production d'information scientifique, de citations et de rédaction.

Abstract

This new edition of Núñez’s Anthropocosmic Theatre contains the text of the original English translation plus additional contributions from Núñez and others. In part one, Núñez traces his researches in Nahuatlan, Tibetan and western theatre, to arrive at his design for a theatre of the human in the cosmos. Part Two explores how this work has developed, during the last three decades, into an approach to performance training and production that uniquely combines ritual and contemplative influences. New and previously untranslated writing from Núñez presents his idiosyncratic view of an awakened and expansive role for theatre today.

Abstract

Eva, a 1927 novel by Dutch writer Carry van Bruggen, is an experiment in depicting a woman’s life from girlhood to marriage, and beyond, to sexual freedom and independence. At the same time, the narrative expresses Eva’s dawning sense of self and expanding subjectivity through a stream of consciousness told by a shifting narrator. Burdened all of her life by feelings of shame, at the end of the novel Eva overcomes this legacy of her upbringing and declares that it is ‘bodily desire that makes love acceptable’.

Abstract

How do professional writers adapt their strategies, routines and use of language resources to different writing situations? 17 case studies explore patterns and interrelations in writing processes of multilingual writers: 13 students and 4 researchers have recorded their writing processes with screen-capturing software and additionally, provided information about their language- and writing biographies. Based on the cross case analysis of these 17 case studies, the PROSIMS writing process model conceptualizes influence factors and dynamic interrelations in writing processes.

Abstract

This book focuses on how student teachers for primary and lower secondary school develop competence as teachers of writing. Analyses are based on written, digital dialogues between student teachers, mentors and lecturers during field practice. The dialogues can be characterized as discussions, and are results of SKRIVUT, an intervention study. Using writing as a mediating tool, the goal of SKRIVUT was to facilitate and strengthen the interplay between the two arenas of learning in teacher education.

Abstract

Wissenschaftliche Texte sind durch unterschiedliche Bildungstraditionen und Schreibkulturen geprägt, die sich unter anderem in verschiedenen Schreibkonventionen und Formulierungsroutinen ausdrücken. Die Beiträge in diesem Band zeigen anhand detaillierter empirischer Analysen von Texten, die Wissenschaftler und Studierende verfasst haben, Merkmale und Unterschiede verschiedener Wissenschaftssprachen auf. Sie machen auf die Hürden und Schwierigkeiten aufmerksam, denen Studierende beim Verfassen von Arbeiten in der Fremdsprache Deutsch begegnen, woraus sich didaktische Implikationen ergeben. Berücksichtigt werden bislang teilweise weniger beachtete Herkunftssprachen wie das Polnische, Russische, Italienische und Chinesische.
