This comprehensive reader on indigenous archaeology shows that collaboration has become a key part of archaeology and heritage practice worldwide. Collaborative projects and projects directed and conducted by indigenous peoples independently have become standard, community concerns are routinely addressed, and oral histories are commonly incorporated into research. This volume begins with a substantial section on theoretical and philosophical underpinnings, then presents key articles from around the globe in sections on Oceania, North America, Mesoamerica and South America, Africa, Asia, and Europe. Editorial introductions to each piece con­textualize them in the intersection of archaeology and indigenous studies. This major collection is an ideal text for courses in indigenous studies, archaeology, heritage management, and related fields.

This landmark collection brings together a range of exciting new comparative work in the burgeoning field of hemispheric studies. Scholars working in the fields of Latin American studies, Asian American studies, American studies, American literature, African Diaspora studies, and comparative literature address the urgent question of how scholars might reframe disciplinary boundaries within the broad area of what is generally called American studies. The essays take as their starting points such questions as: What happens to American literary, political, historical, and cultural studies if we recognize the interdependency of nation-state developments throughout all the Americas? What happens if we recognize the nation as historically evolving and contingent rather than already formed? Finally, what happens if the "fixed" borders of a nation are recognized not only as historically produced political constructs but also as component parts of a deeper, more multilayered series of national and indigenous histories? With essays that examine stamps, cartoons, novels, film, art, music, travel documents, and governmental publications, Hemispheric American Studies seeks to excavate the complex cultural history of texts and discourses across the ever-changing and stratified geopolitical and cultural fields that collectively comprise the American hemisphere. This collection promises to chart new directions in American literary and cultural studies.

Machen wir uns nichts vor!

Wir wir erkennen, was andere wirklich denken

Warum gibt es so oft Missverständnisse selbst zwischen guten Freunden? Warum wissen die wenigsten Ehemänner, was ihre Ehefrauen wollen – und umgekehrt? Warum scheitern Verhandlungen, obwohl sich alle Beteiligten optimal vorbereitet haben? Nicholas Epley hat sich intensiv mit den Fallstricken der menschlichen Kommunikation auseinandergesetzt. Wir alle glauben, uns selbst gut zu kennen, so Epley – und irren uns meist gewaltig. Der nächste fatale Fehler: Wir schließen von uns selbst auf andere. Wir müssen lernen, unsere Empathie zu nutzen. Wie das funktioniert, wie wir eigene und fremde Motive und Bedürfnisse ergründen können, erläutert der Autor anhand von aktuellen wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen. Eine Gebrauchsanleitung für erfolgreiches Mind Reading in jeder Lebenslage – beruflich wie privat.

Geschichte als Theater: Unter dem Sammelbegriff »Living History« oder auch »Reenactment« wird eine ganze Bandbreite von dramatischen Formaten gefasst, die historische Ereignisse, Personen oder Zustände vergegenwärtigen sollen. Als spielerische Aneignung von Geschichte als Hobby - aber auch als didaktische Methode in Museen und Schulen - gewinnt Geschichtstheater mehr und mehr an Beliebtheit. Wolfgang Hochbrucks Typologie erfasst und erläutert alle Formate kritisch, leitet sie historisch her und setzt sie zueinander in Bezug.
