Dalcroze Today: An Education Through and Into Music

Editura: OXFORD UNIV PR

Anul aparitiei: 1993

Emile Jaques-Dalcroze, 1865-1950, was an educational pioneer, musician, and creative artist. This book gives us a fascinating insight into the inception and development of his work, from the end of the last century up to the present day. It traces his growing ideas on the use of movement and of improvisation in the process of music learning, and the application of these ideas to the vital experiencing of musical material, both for children and adults.

Possible Worlds, Artificial Intelligence, and Narrative Theory

Editura: INDIANA UNIV PR

Anul aparitiei: 1992

In this important contribution to narrative theory, Marie-Laure Ryan applies insights from artificial intelligence and the theory of possible worlds to the study of narrative and fiction. For Ryan, the theory of possible worlds provides a more nuanced way of discussing the commonplace notion of a fictional "world," while artificial intelligence contributes to narratology and the theory of fiction directly via its researches into the congnitive processes of texts and automatic story generation. Although Ryan applies exotic theories to the study of narrative and to fiction, her book maintains a solid basis in literary theory and makes the formal models developed by AI researchers accessible to the student of literature. By combining the philosophical background of possible world theory with models inspired by AI, the book fulfills a pressing need in narratology for new paradigms and an interdisciplinary perspective.

Strategy and Ethnic Conflict: A Method, Theory, and Case Study

Editura: PRAEGER FREDERICK A

Anul aparitiei: 2002

Ethnic conflict now presents the thorniest problems for military and civilian strategists of all stripes. This book presents a new general theory of strategy, encompassing studies of the relationship between values, interest, and strategy as these relate to ethnic conflicts. It focuses on the relationship between values and strategy, building a theory on the hypothesis that national values influence national strategy. Paquette's research reveals that national values influence national strategy through three mechanisms: cognition, appreciation, and evaluation. Each mechanism, and indeed the whole value-focused approach to strategic thinking, is described using a network of interrelated statements. Paquette develops a methodology specific to the issues of international security and ethnic considerations. She tests this theory extensively for internal consistency before applying it to a single historical case: French decision-making on national strategy between 1955 and 1970; however, because of its generality, this same theory could easily be applied to other cases. As with any theory, it is possible to vary successively or simultaneously assumptions or conditions and to derive new ...

Transnational Governance: Institutional Dynamics of Regulation

Editura: CAMBRIDGE UNIV PR

Anul aparitiei: 2008

Globalization involves a profound re-ordering of our world with the proliferation everywhere of rules and transnational modes of governance. This book examines how this governance is formed, changes and stabilizes. Building on a rich and varied set of empirical cases, it explores transnational rules and regulations and the organizing, discursive and monitoring activities that frame, sustain and reproduce them. Beginning from an understanding of the powerful structuring forces that embed and form the context of transnational regulatory activities, the book scrutinizes the actors involved, how they are organized, how they interact and how they transform themselves to adapt to this new regulatory landscape. A powerful analysis of the modes and logics of transnational rule-making and rule-monitoring closes the book. This authoritative resource offers ideal reading for all academic researchers and graduate students of governance and regulation.

Transnational Communities: Shaping Global Economic Governance

Editura: CAMBRIDGE UNIV PR

Anul aparitiei: 2010

Transnational communities are social groups that emerge from mutual interaction across national boundaries, oriented around a common project or 'imagined' identity. This common project or identity is constructed and sustained through the active engagement and involvement of at least some of its members. Such communities can overlap in different ways with formal organizations but, in principle, they do not need formal organization to be sustained. This book explores the role of transnational communities in relation to the governance of business and economic activity. It does so by focusing on a wide range of empirical terrains, including discussions of the Laleli market in Istanbul, the institutionalization of private equity in Japan, the transnational movement for open content licenses, and the mobilization around environmental certification. These studies show that transnational communities can align the cognitive and normative orientations of their members over time and thereby influence emergent transnational governance arrangements.

Advances in Invertebrates and Fish Telemetry

Editura: SPRINGER PG

Anul aparitiei: 1998

This volume provides a selection of the most significant papers presented at the Second Conference on Fish Telemetry in Europe in La Rochelle, France, in April 1997. The conference was attended by 100 scientists from 18 countries. The contributions are grouped under the following headings: Methodology and New Developments, Tagging Procedures, Behavioural and Physiological Ecology, Fish Migration, Stock Management and Conservation. Particular emphasis was put on tag miniaturisation, multiple functions and sampling strategies. Papers concerned the effects of tags on fish for consolidating behavioural or original physiological investigations noticeably more open to the marine environment. Methods were essentially applied to study the relationships between fish and their natural environment. Besides providing up-to-date information on the state of fish telemetry, the book illustrates the increase in spatial and temporal scales and the number of tracked fish which gives a statistical basis for field study in behavioural ecology.

Narrative Across Media: The Languages of Storytelling

Editura: UNIV OF NEBRASKA PR

Anul aparitiei: 2004

Narratology has been conceived from its earliest days as a project that transcends disciplines and media. The essays gathered here address the question of how narrative migrates, mutates, and creates meaning as it is expressed across various media. Dividing the inquiry into five areas: face-to-face narrative, still pictures, moving pictures, music, and digital media, Narrative across Media investigates how the intrinsic properties of the supporting medium shape the form of narrative and affect the narrative experience. Unlike other interdisciplinary approaches to narrative studies, all of which have tended to concentrate on narrative across language-supported fields, this unique collection provides a much-needed analysis of how narrative operates when expressed through visual, gestural, electronic, and musical means. In doing so, the collection redefines the act of storytelling. Although the fields of media and narrative studies have been invigorated by a variety of theoretical approaches, this volume seeks to avoid a dominant theoretical bias by providing instead a collection of concrete studies that inspire a direct look at texts rather than relying on a particular theory of ...

This complete collection of writings published for the first time in English includes "Story of a Little Girl," about the Catholic priest who sexually molested her sister; "The Sacred," a collection of poems and fragments on mysticism and eroticism; notes on her association with contr-attaque and acephale, and her involvement with the Spanish civil war and the early years of the Soviet Union; a compendium of correspondence with her beloved sister-in-law and tortured love letters to Bataille; and an essay by Bataille about Laure's death of tuberculosis at the age of thirty-five."People describe Laure as pure, dissolute, dark, luminous. 'I drank, I bathed in her radiant purity' Jean Bernier says. Leiris writes about her lyrically in fourbis and frêle bruit as 'the saint of the chasm.' Bataille calls her uncompromising, pure, and sovereign. It is tempting to romanticize Laure - in the most sublime and violent sense - as consumptive poet, a fervent revolutionary, Bataille's great love. But if she is radiant and dirty, she is also insolent. That, it seems, is what saves her." --Jeanine Herman"Colette Peignot, a.k.a.

Der Prozess Der Wissenskonstruktion Aus Ethnologischer Sicht

Editura: VDM VERLAG

Anul aparitiei: 2011

Wissen ist vielfältig, Wissen ist erstrebenswert, Wissen ist in aller Munde. Doch Wissen ist ebenso kulturell geprägt, komplex und kontingent. Diese Arbeit möchte Strategien der Wissenskonstruktion ethnographisch erfassen und verstehen. Hierzu bedient sie sich bewusst dem Begriff der Konstruktion. Denn nach einer umfassenden theoretischen Darstellung von Wissen, Wissenschaft und Technik wird gezeigt, dass Wissen ein Konstrukt ist, welches in einem beobachtbaren Prozess entsteht. Demnach kann Wissen greifbar und erforschbar gemacht werden. Weil Wissen in der Gesellschaft aber unter unterschiedlichen Umständen konstruiert wird, wurde das Forschungsfeld auf ein technisches Museum festgelegt. In der Tat sind Museen wichtige Entstehungsstätten von Wissen - sie fungieren als Medium, als Vermittler von Wissenschaft und sogar als Orte, an welchen Wissen mit allen Sinnen erlebbar ist. Somit zeigt diese Arbeit in ihrem empirischen Teil auf, wie Wissen im technischen Museum konstruiert wird. Die vier dargestellten Strategien sprechen allesamt für eine Vereinfachung der musealen Kommunikation - ein Prozess, welcher in der ethnographischen Feldforschung demonstriert wird.
