Contemporary British Identity

English Language, Migrants and Public Discourse

Author: Christina Julios

Publisher: Routledge

Against the background of an increasingly diverse British society, this book traces the evolution of British identity in the twentieth century. Debates exploring the nature of Britishness and multiculturalism are here deconstructed through a linguistic lens, which considers the role played by the English language in shaping Britain's national identity. Within this context, two significant historical events are considered: the expansionism of nineteenth century British Empire, and the subsequent rise of the United States to the position of world superpower. In charting the development of British nationhood over time, the book identifies three contrasting public narratives, each reflecting society's perceptions of the identity question at particular points in time: a discourse of laissez-faire at the turn of the century; a discourse of multiculturalism in the ensuing decades; and a discourse of integration during the closing years. The book raises fundamental questions about who we are as a nation and how we got here. It also provides clues as to the direction the prevailing public discourse on British identity is likely to take in the twenty-first century.

The Oxford Handbook of Assessment Policy and Practice in Music Education

In the music classroom, instructors who hope to receive aid are required to provide data on their classroom programs. Due to the lack of reliable, valid large-scale assessments of student achievement in music, however, music educators in schools that accept funds face a considerable challenge in finding a way to measure student learning in their classrooms. From Australia to Taiwan to the Netherlands, music teachers experience similar struggles in the quest for a definitive assessment resource that can be used by both music educators and researchers. In this two-volume Handbook, contributors from across the globe come together to provide an authority on the assessment, measurement, and evaluation of student learning in music. The Handbook's first volume emphasizes international and theoretical perspectives on music education assessment in the major world regions. This volume also looks at technical aspects of measurement in music, and outlines situations where theoretical foundations can be applied to the development of tests in music. The Handbook's second volume offers a series of practical and US-focused approaches to music education assessment. Chapters address assessment in different types of US classrooms; how to assess specific skills or requirements; and how assessment can be used in tertiary and music teacher education classrooms. Together, both volumes of The Oxford Handbook of Assessment in Music Education pave the way forward for music educators and researchers in the field.

Law's Judgement

Law's Judgement elucidates and defends a feature of contemporary law that is currently either overlooked or too glibly dismissed as morally troublesome or historically anachronistic. That feature is the abstract nature of law's judgement and its three components show that, when law judges us, it often does so in ignorance of our particular characters and abilities, on the one hand, and in ignorance of our context and circumstances, on the other. Law's judgement is thus insensitive to all or much that makes us the particular people we are. The book explores various connections between this mode of judgement and some of our most important legal and political values. It shows that law's abstract judgement is closely related to important juristic conceptions of personhood, responsibility and impartiality, and that these notions are not without moral significance. The book also examines the connections between modern law's judgement and three of our most important political values, namely, dignity, equality and community. It argues that, if we value particular conceptions of dignity, equality and community, then we must also value law's judgement. Illuminating these connections therefore serves a double purpose: first, it makes a case against those who counsel liberation from law's abstract judgement and, second, it redirects attention to the task of morally evaluating law's abstract judgement in its own terms.

We’re pleased to welcome you to the Department of Political Science at the University of Bari “Aldo Moro” for the 7th Migration Conference. The conference is the largest scholarly gathering on migration with a global scope.

We hope to continue with this tradition and you will enjoy the Conference and Bari during your stay.

Attention! Are you from India and interested in studying abroad in the US, Europe, Australia or Canada? Sick of seeing scholarships only for local residents. Studying in a foreign university in a developed country has long been seen as a gateway to a better standard of living. This is either through the increased knowledge obtained or through the increased job opportunities that result from the knowledge. Universities in Europe, US, Australia and Canada expose all their students to people from different corners of the globe. Students do learn to work with people from different cultural backgrounds as well as learn skills that will make them more employable globally. Of course, it is important that they work hard once they get there and make the right decisions; but they definitely have the opportunity to a better life. However, people from India looking to study abroad have several obstacles that they need to overcome. The biggest burden is the financial one. People from upper middle class and rich families can afford the fees needed for the high grade of education. However, everyone else must scramble. There is the opportunity for graduate research and graduate teaching assistanships. But those who are not able to get these assistanships must rely on loans taken at very high interest rate in Indian banks. Given the cost of foreign education and salaries in India, it is almost impossible to pay off the loan with an Indian salary. So, there is huge pressure to get a job in the country of schooling. This can be difficult as most jobs cater towards those with local citizenship. From personal experiences with study abroad scholarships, I realize that most of the scholarships that are shown to students require citizenship or permanent residence of the local country. When I was at Georgia Tech, there were plenty of scholarships available to local residents of Georgia, USA. Most of the local students could cover their entire tuition with the scholarships. The international students were left hanging. To address this issue, our team looked at several programs, both in India and the developed countries. There are scholarships in USA, Australia, USA and Europe that are specific to students from developing countries to help educate their workforce. There are also scholarships by private and public organizations in India that are for Indian citizens. There are several universities that provide scholarships as well. This book is a compilation of several of the most prominent scholarships that could benefit you in your studies, and make a difference in your life. As a bonus for downloading this book, you will get an extra chapter on how to carry out an effective search for a desired scholarship and tips on how you can write a winning proposal. You will also get tips on how you can avoid being scammed amongst other beneficial insight. I would encourage you to go through the entire book as you may not really know what best suits your academic needs unless you have read all through the book. What's included in this book: List of scholarships for US universities List of scholarships for UK and European universities List of scholarships for Australian Universities List of scholarships for Canadian Universities How to effectively submit an application for a scholarship (Bonus) If this sounds like what you want, then this book is for you.
