Abstract

Es sind die Begegnungen mit Menschen, die unser Leben prägen. Dabei beeinflussen die kulturellen, gesellschaftlichen und sozialen Umstände oder persönlichen Neigungen die Qualität und Intensität dieser Begegnungen und wirken sich auf unser weiteres Handeln und Verhalten aus. Wie sich Begegnungen und Beziehungen gestalten und verändern, wird in der Ausstellung anhand der Sammlungen zweier Göttinger Ethnologen dargestellt, die knapp drei Jahrzehnte am Institut für Ethnologie gewirkt haben. Der Ozeanist Erhard Schlesier führte Feldforschungen im Südpazifik durch. Sein regionaler Schwerpunkt lag dabei auf Südost-Neuguinea. Die Forschungen des Afrikanisten Peter Fuchs erstreckten sich auf das Gebiet der Sahara und des Sahel. Beide Ethnologen betrachteten Begegnungen als einen Prozess von wechselseitigen kulturellen Beeinflussungen, denen man im Hinblick auf ihre jeweilige Dynamik und Wirksamkeit auf die Spur kommen sollte.

Abstract

Steeped in story-telling and endlessly curious, Reading the Country: An Introduction to Nomadology (1984) was the product of Paddy Roe, Stephen Muecke and Krim Benterrak experimenting with what it might be like to think together about country. Their book has since become one of the great twentieth-century works of intercultural dialogue.Reading the Country: 30 Years On is a celebration of that book—examining not only its place and time of creation but also its movement across social, philosophical and political surfaces, seeping into the way we look and learn and teach about how people are, or could be, part of country.Recalling a spirit of intellectual risk and respect, in this collection Indigenous and non-Indigenous scholars, poets, writers and publishers acknowledge the past and look, with hope, to future transformations of culture and country. Reading the Country: 30 Years On is the third volume in the ‘CSR Books’ series, the previous volumes being History, Power, Text: Cultural Studies and Indigenous Studies (2014) edited by Timothy Neale, Crystal McKinnon and Eve Vincent, and Art in the Global Present (2014) edited by Nikos Papastergiadis and Victoria Lynn.

Abstract

The uses and practices of sign languages are strongly related to scientific research on sign languages and vice versa. Conversely, sign linguistics cannot be separated from Deaf community practices, including practices in education and interpretation. Therefore, the current volume brings together work on sign language interpreting, the use of spoken and sign language with deaf children with cochlear implants and early language development in children exposed to both a spoken and sign language, and reports on recent research on aspects of sign language structure. It also includes papers addressing methodological issues in sign language research. The book presents papers by more seasoned researchers and new kids on the block, as well as papers in which the two collaborate. The contributions will be of interest to all those interested in linguistics, sociolinguistics, cultural studies, interpreting and education. It will have particular relevance to those interested in sign linguistics, sociolinguistics of deaf communities, Deaf studies, Deaf culture, sign language interpretation, sign language teaching, and (spoken/signed) bilingualism. Given the scarcity of literature on Deaf studies, the book will also appeal widely beyond the traditional academic milieu. As a result, it has relevance for those teaching and learning sign languages, for professional and student interpreters and for teachers of the deaf.

Abstract

Untangling the various approaches to language teaching and their history, Gerdi Quist maps recent thinking in language studies at university. Using an interdisciplinary theoretical framework, drawn from educational philosophy, cultural studies, intercultural studies and language pedagogy, the author discusses the many tensions and currents in contemporary language teaching.&#xD;&#xD;The author puts forward an alternative pedagogy, that of a cultuurtekst-perspective, which engages learners at complex linguistic and cultural levels. In discussing the case study in which this approach is tested, the author develops her argument for embracing various critical perspectives through the personal engagement of students. From the start the author acknowledges her own engaged position as a language teacher in a liberal humanistic educational environment. She adopts a self -critical perspective through which her engagement with adverse student reaction leads to deepening insights both for the author and her students as part of the non-linear process of learning. &#xD;&#xD;Gerdi Quist teaches Dutch language and lectures on multiculturalism and intercultural communication. Recent publications included a book chapter and journal articles on language pedagogy and intercultural communication. &#xD;(DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.5334/baj)

Abstract

This volume of essays is the result of the EU project «EHISTO», which dealt with the mediation of history in popular history magazines and explored how history in the commercialised mass media can be used in history teaching in order to develop the media literacy and the transcultural competences of young people. The volume offers articles which for the first time address the phenomenon of popular history magazines in Europe and their mediating strategies in a foundational way. The articles are intended as introductory material for teachers and student teachers. The topic also offers an innovative approach in terms of making possible a European cross-country comparison, in which results based on qualitative and quantitative methods are presented, related to the content focus areas profiled in the national magazines.
