Abstract

Every region of India is and has been multilingual, with speakers ofdifferent languages and speakers of multiple languages. But literary‘multilingual locals’ are often more fragmented than we think. Whilemultilingualism suggests interest, and proficiency, in more than one literarylanguage and tradition, very real barriers exist in terms of written vs. oralaccess, mutual interaction, and social and cultural hierarchies andexclusions. What does it mean to take multilingualism seriously when studyingliterature? One way, this essay suggests, is to consider works on a similartopic or milieu written in the different languages and compare both theirliterary sensibilities and their social imaginings. Rural Awadh offers anexcellent example, as the site of many intersecting processes anddiscourses—of shared Hindu-Muslim sociality and culture and Muslimseparatism, of nostalgia for a sophisticated culture and critique ofzamindari exploitation and socio-economic backwardness, as the home of Urduand of rustic Awadhi. This essay analyses three novels written at differenttimes about rural Awadh—one set before 1947 and the others in the wake ofthe Zamindari Abolition Act of 1950 and the migration of so many Muslimzamindars from Awadh, either to Pakistan or to Indian cities. The first isQazi Abdul Sattar’s Urdu novel Shab gazida (1962), the other two areShivaprasad Singh’s Alag alag vaitarani (1970) and the Awadh subplot inVikram Seth’s A Suitable Boy (1993). Without making them representatives oftheir respective languages, by comparing these three novels I am interestedin exploring how they frame and what they select of Awadh culture, how muchground and sensibility they share, and how they fit within broader traditionsof ‘village writing’ in Hindi, Urdu, and Indian English.

Abstract

This project contributes to our understanding of rural Midwesterners and farm newspapers at the turn of the century. While cultural historians have mainly focused on readers in town and cities, it examines Midwestern farmers. It also contributes to the "new rural history" by exploring the ideas of Hal Barron and others that country people selectively adapted the advice given to them by reformers. Finally, it furthers our understanding of American farm newspapers themselves and offers suggestions on how to use them as sources.

Abstract

Cet ouvrage rend compte de la façon dont les dynamiques de changements de pratiques des agriculteurs sont liées à la structure des réseaux de dialogues professionnels dans lesquels ils sont insérés. Développant une analyse des réseaux sociaux, il montre comment, du fait de certaines caractéristiques de ces réseaux, les agriculteurs se trouvent socialement plus ou moins bien armés pour mettre en œuvre de nouvelles pratiques plus respectueuses de l’environnement.

Abstract

Every region of India is and has been multilingual, with speakers of different languages and speakers of multiple languages. But literary ‘multilingual locals’ are often more fragmented than we think. While multilingualism suggests interest, and proficiency, in more than one literary language and tradition, very real barriers exist in terms of written vs. oral access, mutual interaction, and social and cultural hierarchies and exclusions. What does it mean to take multilingualism seriously when studying literature? One way, this essay suggests, is to consider works on a similar topic or milieu written in the different languages and compare both their literary sensibilities and their social imaginings. Rural Awadh offers an excellent example, as the site of many intersecting processes and discourses—of shared Hindu-Muslim sociality and culture and Muslim separatism, of nostalgia for a sophisticated culture and critique of zamindari exploitation and socio-economic backwardness, as the home of Urdu and of rustic Awadhi. This essay analyses three novels written at different times about rural Awadh—one set before 1947 and the others in the wake of the Zamindari Abolition Act of 1950 and the migration of so many Muslim zamindars from Awadh, either to Pakistan or to Indian cities.

Abstract

Set up during the food crisis in the aftermath of the Second World War, France's National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) was founded on the notion that public scientific research into the management of life in all its multifarious forms would be of major importance for rebuilding France's position in the world. This book, based on original documentation and testimonies of the main protagonists, explores the 70 years of the institute's life, focusing on the interactions between science and politics.

Abstract

Comfort during resting, half-closed eyes when feeding on highly palatable feed, or vigorous tail wagging when being brushed are some of the positive indicators that can be used to evaluate the quality of the environment in which domestic animals live. This has been a radical shift from the past as, until now, the welfare assessment on farms has meant assessing negative indicators, namely the number of lame animals, presence of lesions, or frequency of agonistic behaviours. However, the latest research confirms that the absence of a problem or of suffering does not necessarily imply that the animals are experiencing a good life and that their level of welfare is high. To guarantee high welfare standards, animals should experience positive conditions that allow them to live a “life worth living”, and positive indicators are needed to identify these conditions. This Special Issue focuses on the development and validation of indicators of positive welfare or on the refinement of the existing ones, as well as on the identification of suitable living conditions for providing positive welfare to farmed and companion animals.

Abstract

This book presents cross-discipline studies covering aspects ranging from animal science to social/consumer sciences and psychology, with the aim to collect and disseminate information promoting the continuous enhancement of animal welfare by improving stakeholders’ perception of animal welfare. Although animal welfare is about how the animals perceive the surrounding environment, the actual welfare of the animals is dependent on how the stakeholders perceive and weigh animal welfare. The stakeholders can, either directly (i.e., through stock-people interaction with the animals) or indirectly (e.g., when retailers and consumers are willing to pay more for high welfare animal-based products), affect the way animals are kept and handled.
