Abstract

Racism as a historically grown power relation varies in its complex configurations, depending on social-political as well as local-historical contexts. This study examines how students deal with racism, with a particular focus on the contexts and institutions of academia. Due to the adaptive potential of current forms of racism, paradox spheres (of negotiation) open up to those affected by it: On the one hand, as academics, they are included, however, in a limited way, while on the other hand they remain excluded due to their ongoing experiences of being othered. The analyses show that the social and institutional handling of racism and experiences of racism are mostly tabooed or de-thematized. These structural circumstances fundamentally affect the students’ handling of racism.

Abstract

Nas relações entre os avanços da historiografia nacional e a sua expressão no grande movimento científico europeu, o papel da Academia Real das Ciências de Lisboa está por conhecer convenientemente. A fértil produção de conhecimentos histórico científicos e a sua disseminação foi conseguida através da imprensa periódica especializada, além das conferências científicas e pedagógicas. Através da troca colossal de informações e o esforço de vulgarização dos novos estudos agrícolas, técnicos e economicistas na República das Letras, a ciência histórica transitou de uma esfera restrita para um patamar muitíssimo amplo na sociedade. Incidiria, neste sentido, directamente na cultura e na mentalidade social, o que permitiu uma maior abertura

Abstract

This book contains the proceedings from Weaponising Speculation, a two-day conference and exhibition that took place in Dublin in March 2013. Weaponising Speculation was organised by D.U.S.T. (Dublin Unit for Speculative Thought) and aimed to be an exploration of the various expressions of DIY theory operative in the elsewheres, the shafts and tunnels of the para-academy. The topics covered all come under the welcoming embrace of speculation, spanning a broad range: from art, philosophy, nature, fiction, and computation to spiders, culinary cosmology, and Oscar the Grouch. The book itself aims to be more than just a collection of essays and catalogue of artworks, but also a documentation of the event as a whole. An object that both those present at the event and those who missed it would want to own — bringing something new to both sets of readers

Abstract

"This is a book about the power game currently being played out between two symbiotic cultural institutions: the university and the novel. As the number of hyper-knowledgeable literary fans grows, students and researchers in English departments waiver between dismissing and harnessing voices outside the academy. Meanwhile, the role that the university plays in contemporary literary fiction is becoming increasingly complex and metafictional, moving far beyond the ‘campus novel’ of the mid-twentieth century. Martin Paul Eve’s engaging and far-reaching study explores the novel's contribution to the ongoing displacement of cultural authority away from university English. Spanning the works of Jennifer Egan, Ishmael Reed, Tom McCarthy, Sarah Waters, Percival Everett, Roberto Bolaño and many others, Literature Against Criticism forces us to re-think our previous notions about the relationship between those who write literary fiction and those who critique it.

Abstract

A Gender Budget is a strategic tool that provides an assessment of the political-economic and financial decisions of public administration from a gender-sensitive perspective. Its main goal is to support a more efficient, transparent, and equitable, management of resources.The first Gender Budget of the Università degli Studi di Napoli “Federico II” (UNINA) was realized within the framework of the European-Union funded GENOVATE research project: Transforming Organizational Culture for Gender Equality in Research and Innovation.It consists in a thorough context analysis of the University enrolment and career policy outcomes, encompassing students, academic, technical and administrative staff, which results in a detailed map of the still relevant gender gap dimension in the institution.Raw data and their focused analysis show how cultural and structural barriers contribute to women dropping out of university at the very beginning of scientific careers (i.e. the so-called ‘leaky pipeline’ phenomenon). Due to horizontal and vertical segregation mechanisms, some disciplinary fields and academic positions still remain dominated by one gender.It is the authors’ hope that Gender Budgeting may become a well-established practice at UNINA, and may support transformative actions and inspire gender-mainstreaming institutional policies.GENOVATE is a project funded by the European Commission within the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), under the Science in Society grant programme (SiS 2012 2.1.1-1).This volume was co-funded by the European Union.

Abstract

Eduardo de Hinojosa (1852-1919) fue catedrático de historia de las instituciones en la Escuela de Diplomática y en la Facultad de Filosofía y Letras de la Universidad Central. El libro explora sus muchas relaciones con las Academias y en concreto con la de Morales, proponiendo algunas claves para evaluar su magisterio como historiador del derecho. En apéndice se ofrecen sus dos obras relacionadas con la RACMyP: Influencia que tuvieron en el derecho público de su patria y singularmente en el derecho penal los filósofos y teólogos españoles anteriores a nuestro siglo (1890); La condición civil de la mujer en el derecho español antiguo y moderno (1907).

Abstract

Feminist scholarship is sometimes dismissed as not quite ‘proper’ knowledge – it’s too political or subjective, many argue. But what are the boundaries of ‘proper’ knowledge? Who defines them, and how are they changing? How do feminists negotiate them? And how does this boundary-work affect women’s and gender studies, and its scholars’ and students’ lives? These are the questions tackled by this ground-breaking ethnography of academia inspired by feminist epistemology, Foucault, and science and technology studies. Drawing on data collected over a decade in Portugal and the UK, US and Scandinavia, this title explores different spaces of academic work and sociability, considering both official discourse and ‘corridor talk’. It links epistemic negotiations to the shifting political economy of academic labour, and situates the smallest (but fiercest) departmental negotiations within global relations of unequal academic exchange. Through these links, this timely volume also raises urgent questions about the current state and status of gender studies and the mood of contemporary academia.

Abstract

Entre 1897 y 1917 la Academia de Ciencias Morales y Políticas convocó 21 concursos de derecho consuetudinario y economía popular. A ellos se presentaron 50 memorias y fueron premiadas 22. Estos concursos hacen visible la denominada escuela española de derecho consuetudinario, especialmente activa en esos años. Y muestran su mensaje original: la costumbre, y no la ley, es expresión del auténtico derecho. De ahí la crítica a la codificación y a su obsesión unificadora. Entre los componentes de esta escuela sobresale la figura de Joaquín Costa, por lo que también se alude a ella como escuela costista.

Abstract

El libro ofrece una colección de 4.152 documentos de la época de Enrique IV de Castilla (1454-1474) editados de forma resumida, entresacados de diversos archivos españoles. La mayor parte procede de las colecciones bibliográficas y documentales de la Real Academia de la Historia, como las de Luis de Salazar y Castro, Salvá, Lorich, Catedrales de España y colección Diplomática Española, sin olvidar algunos manuscritos singulares de la misma biblioteca. Igualmente se han vaciado algunos fondos de la Biblioteca Nacional de Madrid y Archivo General de Simancas, así como del Archivo Municipal de Sevilla. El marco cronológico se ha ampliado a los últimos años del reinado de Juan II y primeros de los Reyes Católicos debido a la abundancia de noticias relacionadas con este rey. El criterio temático es flexible, ya que no se ha limitado la búsqueda a la documentación expedida por la cancillería regia. Esta obra pretende ofrecer una herramienta de trabajo a los especialistas en el siglo XV castellano.

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.
