Excavations In The Archaic Civic Buildings At Azoria In 2005-2006, Donald C. Haggis, Margaret S. Mook, Rodney D. Fitzsimons, C. Margaret Scarry, Lynn M. Snyder, William C. West Iii

World Languages and Cultures Publications

Continuing excavation on the South Acropolis at Azoria in northeastern Crete has exposed buildings of Archaic date (7th–early 5th century b.c.) that served communal or public functions. Work conducted in 2005 and 2006 completed the exploration of Late Archaic levels within the Communal Dining Building (putative andreion complex), the Monumental Civic Building, and the adjacent Service Building. These contexts and their assemblages, especially the animal and plant remains, permit the characterization of diverse dining practices and the interpretation of patterns of food production and consumption. Both the Communal Dining Building and the Monumental Civic Building show extensive evidence ...


Kant Crisis, William H. Carter 2011 Iowa State University

Kant Crisis, William H. Carter

World Languages and Cultures Publications

This study approaches the last days of Immanuel Kant through the lens of his contemporary biographers and other correspondents. Among the latter, Kant’s brother and, subsequently, his brother’s family provide a symptomatic reflection upon Kant’s management of his genealogy and his legacy. Yet behind this body of work is another corpus, one which embodies maternal and paternal legacies that are not readily subsumed by Oedipus or Kant’s philosophy. This work (of art) is Kant’s own body or corpus, which he painstakingly maintained and which provided a case study for his refelctions on preventive medicine in ...

A lo largo de los cinco capftulos, tres de ellos publicados anteriormente, Hernandez interpreta las practicas culturales relacionadas con el Carnaval como una forma de resistencia africana iniciada desde la colonia. La siguiente cita resume la idea central, misma que esta presente a lo largo dellibro y es reiterada en sus conclusiones...


Welcome (Back): The Use Of Initiatory Elements In The Reconciliation Of Heretics To The Early Church, Christopher Angel 2011 College of Saint Benedict/Saint John's University

Welcome (Back): The Use Of Initiatory Elements In The Reconciliation Of Heretics To The Early Church, Christopher Angel

School of Theology and Seminary Graduate Papers/Theses

The sacraments of Reconciliation and Confirmation would be used today for a lapsed Roman Catholic to return to the church and for a non-Catholic Christian to be received into full communion with the church. These rites took centuries to develop; before these sacraments assumed the role that they have today, ritual elements of these sacraments were used to reconcile heretics and schismatics to the Church. In this paper, I examine the practices of the Roman Catholic Church, particularly before the year 700, discussing how water baptism, anointing with chrism, and receiving the Eucharist were prescribed at various times and places ...

Behind The Scenes Of Hallyu Down Under, Brian Yecies 2011 University of Wollongong

Behind The Scenes Of Hallyu Down Under, Brian Yecies

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Like fusion cuisine, international film co-productions have become commonplace in the 21st century, but getting the balance of flavours right is still a challenge in the case of a couple of recent collaborations - especially where the creation of original and dynamic soundscapes has been a critical factor - a pinch of aussie technical skill and ingenuity has proven to be a key ingredient.

African Language Publishing For Children In South Africa: Challenges For Translators, Viv Edwards, Jacob Marriote Ngwaru 2011 University of Reading, Reading, United Kingdom

African Language Publishing For Children In South Africa: Challenges For Translators, Viv Edwards, Jacob Marriote Ngwaru

Institute for Educational Development, East Africa

The commitment to multilingualism embedded in the 1996 South African Constitution has wide ranging implications for many aspects of education. This paper focuses on the dearth of teaching and learning materials in African languages required to deliver effective bilingual education, and on the potential role of translation in offering solutions for this problem. Drawing on an analysis of currently available African language books for children and interviews with educators, writers, publishers, translators and organisations concerned with book promotion, it explores issues which have emerged as critical for both the quality and availability of translation. Attention is drawn to the ways ...


African Language Books For Children: Issues For Authors, Viv Edwards, Jacob Marriote Ngwaru 2011 University of Reading, Reading, United Kingdom

African Language Books For Children: Issues For Authors, Viv Edwards, Jacob Marriote Ngwaru

Institute for Educational Development, East Africa

Growing interest in bilingual education in sub-Saharan Africa has highlighted an urgent need for reading material in African languages. In this paper, we focus on authors, one of several groups of stakeholders with responsibility for meeting this demand. We address three main issues: the nature and extent of African language publishing for children; the challenges for authors; and the available support. Our analysis is based on interviews and focus group discussions with publishers, authors, translators, educationalists, and representatives of book promotion organisations from nine African countries and documentary data on children's books in African languages in South Africa. Although ...
