Abstract

American Mobilities investigates representations of mobility – social, economic, geographic – in American film and literature during the Depression, WWII, and the early Cold War. With an emphasis on the dual meaning of »domestic«, referring to both the family home and the nation, this study traces the important trope of mobility that runs through the »American« century. Juxtaposing canonical fiction with popular, and low-budget independent films with Classical Hollywood, Leyda brings the analytic tools of American cultural and literary studies to bear on an eclectic array of primary texts as she builds a case for the significance of mobility in the study of the United States.

Abstract

Wieso wandelt sich Kooperation in Konflikt? Wie lässt sich der dynamische Wechsel in der deutsch-amerikanischen Sicherheitsstruktur in Afghanistan und im Irak erklären? Dieses Problem geht weit über den konkreten Gegenstand hinaus, berührt es doch auch grundlegende Fragen: etwa die nach der menschlichen Natur oder jene nach dem Verhältnis von Akteur und Struktur bzw. von Ideen und Materie. Auch die Möglichkeiten und Grenzen wissenschaftlicher Analysen bedürfen einer Reflexion. Auf Basis des #on("i")#Critical Realism#off("i")# stellt sich Tim Griebel diesen Fragen und rekonstruiert die Dynamik von Liebe und Macht innerhalb einer historischen Sicherheitsstruktur mithilfe einer korpuslinguistischen kritisch-realistischen Diskursanalyse.

Abstract

The book discusses the origins and the formation of U.S. reorientation strategies for post-war democratization and its implementation in the aftermath of World War II, exemplified by case studies of university and academic reconstruction in Austria in the years from 1945 to 1955. The study illustrates and analyzes both the changes and the specific implementations of U.S. reorientation strategies, starting with the war years and continuing up to U.S. propaganda strategies at the outbreak of the Cold War and its subsequent ramifications of post-war-democratization. After the end of World War II, the initial civil intent of U.S. reorientation was to foster a sustainable peacebuilding process by means of intellectual disarmament and a set of long-term democratization measures. The focus of reorientation narrowed first to the limited repertoire of educational and academic policy before ultimately becoming a propaganda instrument of the Cold War.

Abstract

Diktatur und Krieg haben den künstlerischen Aktivismus in Mitteleuropa, wie er mit dem Dadaismus begann, vernichtet. Durch den Strom des Exils verschob er sich auf den amerikanischen Kontinent. Dieser Band beleuchtet den Avantgardismus im frühen 20. Jahrhundert anhand der Fotografie, des Tanzes, surrealistischer Gruppierungen etc., um sich dann dessen Weiterentwicklungen bis in die jüngste Vergangenheit zuzuwenden. Die Beiträger_innen, darunter Theoretiker und Künstlerinnen aus New York, lassen die kulturellen Differenzen zwischen Europa und den USA verstehbar werden und zeigen, dass Avantgarde und politischer Aktivismus aufs Engste zusammengehören.

Abstract

From a historical perspective, the full academic establishment of Women’s and Gender Studies is a radical and far-reaching innovation. Decisive impulses have come from the United States, the European unification and globalization. European Women’s and Gender Studies are therefore intimately linked to the English language and Anglophone cultures, as the near untranslatability of «gender» shows. In this volume 25 experts present surveys for their countries with a historical and European contextualization and offer fundamental insights not only for English Studies but also various other disciplines.

Abstract

Pigs have a strong motivation to explore and root. In conventional pig husbandry systems, this need is difficult to fulfil, unless adequate enrichment materials are provided. This book summarises how enrichment strategies for pigs have evolved over the last few decades in different countries and provides a vast array of possibilities to enhance the exploratory needs of pigs. The role of enrichment material on avoidance of tail biting outbreaks or as an element triggering positive emotions in pigs is also discussed.
