The 'cultural turn' has been a multifarious and pervasive phenomenon in Western universities and modes of social knowledge since the early 1980s. This work focuses on the conjunction of two disciplines where the analytic promises of humanist and social science approaches soon become obvious.

Narrating and Teaching the Nation

The Politics of Education in Pre- and Post-Genocide Rwanda

Author: Denise Bentrovato

Publisher: V&R unipress GmbH

ISBN: 3847105167

Category: Education

Page: 254

The book investigates the politics of education in pre- and post-genocide Rwanda, examining the actors, interests, and discourses that have historically influenced educational policy and practice and in particular the production and revision of history curricula and textbooks. This study combines a systematic historical and comparative analysis of curricula and textbooks in Rwanda, stakeholder interviews, classroom observations, and a large-scale investigation of pupils’ understandings of the country’s history. Written at a crucial time of transition in Rwanda, it illuminates the role of education as a powerful means of socialisation through which dominant discourses and related belief systems have been transmitted to the younger generations, thus moulding the nation. It outlines emergent challenges and possibilities, urging a move away from the use of history teaching to disseminate a conveniently selective official history towards practices that promote critical thinking and reflect the heterogeneity characteristic of Rwanda’s post-genocide society.

Collisions and Continuities

Ten Immigrant Families and Their Children in Icelandic Society and Schools

Author: Hanna Ragnarsdóttir

Publisher: VDM Publishing

Category: Social Science

Page: 368

Icelandic society has seen considerable demographic changes during the last decade with growing numbers of immigrant families settling in the country. This has created a challenge to the Icelandic educational system, demanding improvement to meet the ethnic diversity of students at all school levels. This book presents a study of ten immigrant families, with particular emphasis on the children and their schooling during their first years in Iceland. The main significance of the study is its close analysis of individual experiences during the processes of immigration and adjustment to a new society and school community. The main conclusions of the study reveal insufficient school conditions of many of the immigrant children and discontinuities between some of the homes and schools. A reform agenda is needed at all school levels in Iceland to respond to the new multicultural reality and to prevent the segregation of immigrant children. The book should be useful to researchers within the fields of education, sociology, anthropology and multicultural studies as well as practitioners, such as teachers, school leaders and policy makers.

Sappho in the Making

The Early Reception

Author: Dimitrios Yatromanolakis

Publisher: Harvard Univ Center for Hellenic

ISBN: N.A

Category: Art

Page: 442

View: 6087

This book offers the first interdisciplinary and in-depth study of the cultural practices and ideological paradigms that conditioned the politics of the "reading" of Sappho's songs in the early and most pivotal stages of her reception. In this wide-ranging synthesis, Dimitrios Yatromanolakis investigates visual representations and ancient texts in their synchronic and diachronic multilayeredness to trace the discursive nexuses that defined the making of "Sappho" in the late archaic, classical, and early Hellenistic periods. Offering a systematic analysis of the contextual cues provided by vase paintings and focusing on the sociocultural institution of the symposion, this book explores the intricate modes of the assimilation of Sappho's poetry into diverse social, aesthetic, and performative contexts. Drawing on a number of disciplines, including archaeology, papyrology, and anthropology, Sappho in the Making articulates a new methodological Problematik on the reception of archaic Greek socioaesthetic cultures.

Histoire, Monde et Cultures religieuses. N-26. Les mots de la "religion"

Le Dossier Les mots de la « religion » Dirigé par Philippe Martin, avec les contributions de Pierre Gisel, Claude Langlois, Lionel Obadia, Christophe Duhamelle, Christian Grosse, Olivier Servais, Louis Rousseau, Danièle Hervieu-Léger. Régulièrement, la controverse réapparaît. Dans les années 1990, la France a voulu distinguer vraies et fausses religions, dresser une liste des « sectes », sans pour autant jamais déterminer ces termes. La question est ancienne. Les révolutionnaires français en avaient déjà débattu : devaient-ils parler de « religion », de « cultes » ou « d’opinion religieuse » ? Reprendre ce dossier des définitions marque le désir de L’Iserl d’énoncer les objets qui l’intéressent, de refuser les évidences car, comme l’écrit Régis Debray, « ce qui va de soi est toujours source d’abus ». Huit spécialistes reconnus, venus de Belgique, France, Suisse et du Québec donnent leur point de vue. Pierre Gisel et Claude Langlois nous proposent une plongée au coeur de disputes, parfois violentes, où se mêlent politique, religieux et social. Ces querelles dévoilent les rapports que les « mots » entretiennent avec les « choses ». À travers le plurilinguisme théorique, Lionel Obadia observe la « vie sociale » de ces concepts. Le second volet du dossier montre qu’il ne s’agit pas de querelles purement spéculatives ; elles s’inscrivent dans le temps long. En étudiant deux mots associés, « confessionnel » et « confessionnalisation », Christophe Duhamelle montre que la question contemporaine trouve ses racines dans les conflits du xvie siècle. Christian Grosse se focalise sur le mouvement qui, entre la fin du xixe et le début du xxie siècle, conduit une tradition historiographique d’abord définie comme « ecclésiastique » à se définir plutôt comme « culturelle ». Enfin, troisième temps de la réflexion, celui des expériences. Olivier Servais évoque Louvain-la-Neuve et Louis Rousseau l’Université du Québec à Montréal. Dans le premier cas il convenait de s’affranchir d’une ethnologie à finalité missionnaire, dans le second de fonder un concept. Pour conclure, Danièle Hervieu-Léger répond aux questions de Hmc et revient sur son parcours scientifique. Varia Rome – Beijing (Pékin) – Taïpei.

Headlines of Nation, Subtexts of Class

Working Class Populism and the Return of the Repressed in Neoliberal Europe

Since 1989 neo-nationalism has grown as a volatile political force in almost all European societies in tandem with the formation of a neoliberal European Union and wider capitalist globalizations. Focusing on working classes situated in long-run localized processes of social change, including processes of dispossession and disenfranchisement, this volume investigates how the experiences, histories, and relationships of social class are a necessary ingredient for explaining the re-emergence and dynamics of populist nationalism in both Eastern and Western Europe. Featuring in-depth urban and regional case studies from Romania, Hungary, Serbia, Italy and Scotland this volume reclaims class for anthropological research and lays out a new interdisciplinary agenda for studying identity politics in the intensifying neoliberal conjuncture.
