Das literarische Feld sei ein Mikrokosmos des sozialen Wettbewerbs um Status und Prestige – so Pierre Bourdieu. Dementsprechend rücken zwangsläufig Strategien in den Fokus des Interesses, mittels derer sich Literaturproduzenten wie -rezipienten positionieren und die erkämpfte Position behaupten. Dieser Kampf wird bestimmt durch die Logik des Sich-Abgrenzens und Sich-Abhebens von anderen. Als historisch breit angelegte Fallstudie des 20. Jahrhunderts zeichnet die vorliegende Untersuchung die im Feld der amerikanischen Lyrik vorherrschenden Machtkämpfe um (Be-)Deutungshoheit nach. Die Profilierung des Strategiebegriffs als zentrales Analyseinstrument ermöglicht es, einerseits Strategien der Selbstwahrnehmung und Selbstpositionierung und andererseits der Wahrnehmung und Positionierung von anderen Akteuren zu identifizieren. Distinktionsstrategien umfassen den Einsatz eines Arsenals von Kampfbegriffen, an denen sich der literarische Diskurs im Laufe des Jahrhunderts kontinuierlich unter sich verändernden literarhistorischen Vorzeichen abarbeitet.

Dieser Band untersucht die identitätsstiftende Funktion von Texten dreier mittelalterlicher Autoren, der De Excidio et Conquesto Brittaniae des britischen Gelehrten Gildas, eine Reihe von Stanzen des Dichters Aneirin, welche im Allgemeinen unter dem Titel Y Gododdin zusammengefasst werden, sowie die Werke Historia Ecclesiastica Gentis Anglorum, Teile der Historia Abbatum und der Chronica Maior, ein Teil des Werkes De Temporum Ratione von Beda Venerabilis. Dabei zeigt die Arbeit, dass sich in diesen Texten Elemente einer Strategie der Identitätskonstruktion entdecken lassen, welche selbst Teil eines mittelalterlichen identitätsstiftenden Diskurses zu sein scheinen. Die Studie zeigt, dass eine solche Untersuchung mittelalterlicher Schriften Schlussfolgerungen zur Strategie der Autoren und Entwicklung eines solchen Diskurses ermöglichen, welche ein verbessertes Verständnis von Ursprung und Funktion dieser Texte und einiger ihrer Elemente ermöglichen kann.

Few aspects of daily existence are untouched by technology. Learning and teaching music are no exceptions and arguably have been impacted as much or more than other areas of life. Digital technologies have come to affect music learning and teaching in profound ways, influencing how we create, listen, share, consume, interact, and conceptualize musical practices and the musical experience. For a discipline as entrenched in tradition as music education, this has brought forth myriad views on what does and should constitute music learning and teaching. To tease out and elucidate some of the salient problems, interests, and issues, The Oxford Handbook of Technology and Music Education critically situates technology in relation to music education from a variety of perspectives: historical; philosophical; socio-cultural; pedagogical; musical; economic; policy, organized around four broad themes: Emergence and Evolution; Locations and Contexts: Social and Cultural Issues; Experiencing, Expressing, Learning and Teaching; and Competence, Credentialing, and Professional Development. Chapters from a highly diverse group of junior and senior scholars provide analyses of technology and music education through intersections of gender, theoretical perspective, geographical distribution, and relationship to the field. The Oxford Handbook of Technology and Music Education's dedication to diversity and forward-facing discussion promotes contrasting perspectives and conversational voices rather than reinforce traditional narratives and prevailing discourses.

The 15 articles in this volume are dedicated to the analysis of fundamental cultural developments between Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages. Archaeologists and historians offer new perspectives on Central and Western Europe which do not simply polarise between Romans and Germans. Central themes are the relationship between historical studies and archaeology, the beginnings of the Early Middle Ages, the archaeology of early medieval “peoples”, the role of burials, as well as trade and exchange. The result is a complex picture of an epoch of decisive change.

Doing Ministry with Working Class Whites

To be faithful to the gospel, all ministry must be indigenous; it must participate in the distinctive practices and perspectives of the people among whom ministry is taking place. Because our society tends to ignore or deny the reality of class divisions and prejudice, too many congregational leaders know too little about the world of working class whites. Continuing his groundbreaking work on class and American religion, Sample opens up the lives and lifestyles of working class whites in order to engage with them in authentic and transformational ministry. From the Circuit Rider review: "Tex Sample has written one of the most fun books to read on ministry that you will ever come across. Weaving philosophy, theology, country western lyrics, and stories throughout the book Sample at once delights and provokes us to think about the way in which we live out church in this day and age."

The Ontology of Time

Being and Time in the Philosophies of Aristotle, Husserl and Heidegger

To understand the role of time within the scope of 20th century ontology, after the fundamental works of E. Husserl, M. Heidegger, P. Ricoeur, and E. Levinas, means to develop simultaneously the ontology of time. My aim is to demonstrate that in a definite sense the postmodern onto-logy is chrono-logy. The argument proceeds (and this constitutes its essential novelty) within the `multidimensional space' involving not only the synchronic stratum of current conceptuality in its internal logical relationships, but also the diachronic axis of conceptual genesis. I apply different strategies of analysis in order to emphasize that the concept of the human Self, the concept of being, and the concept of time are inseparably linked with one another. To this triad I add one more link of a theological nature, viz. the relationship between God and the human mind as it has been developed in Orthodox apophatic theology and during the Scholastic controversies concerning the problem of visio Dei.

Cultures in Motion

In the wide-ranging and innovative essays of Cultures in Motion, a dozen distinguished historians offer new conceptual vocabularies for understanding how cultures have trespassed across geography and social space. From the transformations of the meanings and practices of charity during late antiquity and the transit of medical knowledge between early modern China and Europe, to the fusion of Irish and African dance forms in early nineteenth-century New York, these essays follow a wide array of cultural practices through the lens of motion, translation, itinerancy, and exchange, extending the insights of transnational and translocal history. Cultures in Motion challenges the premise of fixed, stable cultural systems by showing that cultural practices have always been moving, crossing borders and locations with often surprising effect. The essays offer striking examples from early to modern times of intrusion, translation, resistance, and adaptation. These are histories where nothing--dance rhythms, alchemical formulas, musical practices, feminist aspirations, sewing machines, streamlined metals, or labor networks--remains stationary. In addition to the editors, the contributors are Celia Applegate, Peter Brown, Harold Cook, April Masten, Mae Ngai, Jocelyn Olcott, Mimi Sheller, Pamela Smith, and Nira Wickramasinghe. Some images inside the book are unavailable due to digital copyright restrictions.

Bourdieu in International Relations

Rethinking Key Concepts in IR

Author: Rebecca Adler-Nissen

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 0415528526

Category: Political Science

Page: 224

This book rethinks the key concepts of International Relations by drawing on the work of Pierre Bourdieu. The last few years have seen a genuine wave of publications promoting sociology in international relations. Scholars have suggested that Bourdieu's vocabulary can be applied to study security, diplomacy, migration and global environmental politics. Yet we still lack a systematic and accessible analysis of what Bourdieu-inspired IR might look like. This book provides the answer. It offers an introduction to Bourdieu's thinking to a wider IR audience, challenges key assumptions, which currently structure IR scholarship – and provides an original, theoretical restatement of some of the core concepts in the field. The book brings together a select group of leading IR scholars who draw on both theoretical and empirical insights from Bourdieu. Each chapter covers one central concept in IR: Methodology, Knowledge, Power, Strategy, Security, Culture, Gender, Norms, Sovereignty and Integration. The chapters demonstrate how these concepts can be reinterpreted and used in new ways when exposed to Bourdieusian logic. Challenging key pillars of IR scholarship, Bourdieu in International Relations will be of interest to critical theorists, and scholars of IR theory.

Dramas of Distinction

Plays by Golden Age Women

Renaissance Europe was the scene of flourishing and innovative dramatic art, and seventeenth-century Spain enjoyed its own Golden Age of the stage. According to traditional studies of this period, however, men seemed to be the only participants. Now in Dramas of Distinction, Teresa Scott Soufas offers the first book-length critical study of five important women playwrights: Angela de Azevedo, Ana Caro Mallen de Soto, Leonor de la Cueva y Silva, Feliciana Enriquez de Guzman, and Marfa de Zayas y Sotomayor. By locating the plays within their period, Soufas avoids universalizing women without regard to history. Her approach transcends the simple measurement of women authors against male models. Confronting the issue of female silence demanded by seventeenth-century Spanish patriarchy, Soufas compares the drive to limit and contain theater space to Renaissance society's efforts to limit and contain women. Yet these dramatists still found ways to question their own roles and male authority. Caro and Cueva investigate the difficult relationship between women and monarchy. Azevedo explores the ways Renaissance women become commodities in the marriage market. Cross-dressed women characters add carnivalesque implications to three plays in which gender identities are unstable. Finally, Enrfquez challenges the precepts of Lope de Vega's comedia nueva as she attempts to adhere to classical formal principles and reject the public playhouse. As a companion to the recently published anthology Women's Acts, also edited by Soufas, this study significantly contributes not only to Hispanic studies but also to women's studies, Renaissance studies, and comparative literature.
