Female Figures in Art and Media

Female Figures in Art and Media

This study represents several years' work on the image of women and genre images of women. It uses two modes of reflecting on or between the far from clearly definable concepts of gender, femininity or masculinity and their representation in time and space. The first one leads the reader between (scientific) texts analysing different aspects or figures to enable questions on gender to be concretized. The second mode of reflection extends a sensitive thread between art and science. New forms of art and human interaction are experimented with in an original dynamic process. Diese Studie veranschaulicht die Arbeit mehrerer Jahre uber das Bild und die Genrebilder von Frauen. Sie zeigt, wie die Frau und das Genre erzahlt oder beschrieben werden, welche Mythen oder Allegorien (Eva, Antigone oder Aschenputtel) seit Jahrhunderten in der Kunst, der Literatur und den Medien standig uberarbeitet und umgestellt werden. Zwei Denkansatze leiten den Leser/Zuschauer durch die mehrdeutigen Figuren und Konzepte des Weiblichen oder Mannlichen. Der erste ist wissenschaftlich gangig und textuell, der zweite Ansatz ist visuell, spannt einen sensiblen Faden zwischen Wissenschaft und Kunst und erlaubt, neue menschliche und kunstlerische Formen bzw. Wechselwirkungen auszuprobieren. Cette etude concretise un travail de plusieurs annees sur l'Image et les images du genre. Elle montre comment sont racontes ou decrits la femme et le genre, quels mythes ou allegories (Eve, Antigone ou Cendrillon) sont refondus et transposes en permanence depuis des siecles dans l'art, la litterature et les medias. Deux modes de reflexion conduisent le lecteur/spectateur a travers les figures et concepts ambigus de feminin ou masculin, le premier mode usuel scientifique et textuel, le second, visuel, tend un fil sensible entre science et art et permet d'experimenter de nouvelles formes et interactions humaines et artistiques."

Expeditionary Anthropology

Teamwork, Travel and the ''Science of Man''

Expeditionary Anthropology

The origins of anthropology lie in expeditionary journeys. But since the rise of immersive fieldwork, usually by a sole investigator, the older tradition of team-based social research has been largely eclipsed. Expeditionary Anthropology argues that expeditions have much to tell us about anthropologists and the people they studied. The book charts the diversity of anthropological expeditions and analyzes the often passionate arguments they provoked. Drawing on recent developments in gender studies, indigenous studies, and the history of science, the book argues that even today, the ‘science of man’ is deeply inscribed by its connections with expeditionary travel.

Academic Migration, Discipline Knowledge and Pedagogical Practice

Voices from the Asia-Pacific

Academic Migration, Discipline Knowledge and Pedagogical Practice

This volume makes a distinctive and innovative contribution to the globalisation of higher education literature by highlighting the myriad benefits of academic migration. Sixteen academic migrants across the Asia-Pacific region reflect on their experiences and wisdom gained across geographical, cultural and disciplinary domains. Each one provides an authentic account of ways in which their experiences and insights have benefited their host institutions and enhanced their pedagogical practice. The groundbreaking volume calls for a shift in academic culture – one in which academic migrants are respected for their cultural, social and intellectual resources, their enhanced interpretive ability and their capacity to view the world through multiple lenses. Are these not the characteristics of educators which universities seek in their efforts to internationalise their institutions and develop in their students an understanding of global citizenship? The volume forges new territory in articulating the relationship between academic migrants, conceptual understanding and the construction of knowledge. The following themes are addressed in this book: Migration of Ideas, Conceptual Understanding and Pedagogical Enrichment Indigenous Pedagogies and Bridging Worldviews Changing Academic Identities and Reshaping Pedagogies Teaching Practice and the Academic Diaspora.

Decolonising Criminology

Imagining Justice in a Postcolonial World

Decolonising Criminology

This book undertakes an exploratory exercise in decolonizing criminology through engaging postcolonial and postdisciplinary perspectives and methodologies. Through its historical and political analysis and place-based case studies, it challenges criminological inquiry by installing colonial structures of power at the centre of the contemporary criminological debate. This work unseats the Western nation-state as the singular point of departure for comparative criminological and socio-legal research. Decolonising Criminology argues that postcolonial and postdisciplinary critique can open up new pathways for criminological investigation. It builds on recent debates in criminology from outside of the Anglosphere. The authors deploy a number of heuristic devices, perspectives and theories generally ignored by criminologists of the Global North and engage perspectives concerned with articulating new decolonised epistemologies of the Global South. This book disputes the view that colonisation is a thing of the past and provides lessons for the Global North.

Teaching Self-control Through Management and Discipline

Teaching Self-control Through Management and Discipline

There are children who act out in school because of problems at home; there are children who act out at home because of behavior they learn at school. The question that parents and educators must keep in mind when disciplining these children is not simply how to alter misbehavior, but in helping children express their autonomy in a more controlled, manageable way. The pivotal approach of this book lies in helping children develop this sense of self-control. This book takes the unique perspective of integrating management and discipline, giving readers the tools to think about and handle self-discipline and misbehavior in children. Instead of directing the focus on how to handle misbehavior, readers are shown the tactics for avoiding discipline problems, using numerous discipline scenarios and applications. Pertinent case studies and incidents help readers think through the problem and apply the appropriate ideas and actions. There is timely coverage of important research findings on motivations, establishing authority, managing the physical environment and many other significant topics. There are also in-depth discussions on group dynamics, motivations and discipline, dealing with persistent misbehavior, and handling serious misbehavior problems.
