Book Summary:

The course of dream travel never did run smooth—at least, not in Liv Silver's experience. Able to visit other people's dreams (whether they want her to or not), Liv has solved mysteries, unearthed difficult truths, fought madmen, and escaped life-threatening peril, all from the comfort of her own bed. But Liv's troubles are just beginning... A rocky romance, a malicious blogger with a hidden identity, a wedding, and a classmate (or two) dead-set on revenge all await Liv in this action-packed conclusion to the Silver trilogy.

Book Summary:

From the USA TODAY bestselling author of Sweet Thing and Nowhere But Here comes a love story about a Craigslist “missed connection” post that gives two people a second chance at love fifteen years after they were separated in New York City. To the Green-eyed Lovebird: We met fifteen years ago, almost to the day, when I moved my stuff into the NYU dorm room next to yours at Senior House. You called us fast friends. I like to think it was more. We lived on nothing but the excitement of finding ourselves through music (you were obsessed with Jeff Buckley), photography (I couldn’t stop taking pictures of you), hanging out in Washington Square Park, and all the weird things we did to make money. I learned more about myself that year than any other. Yet, somehow, it all fell apart. We lost touch the summer after graduation when I went to South America to work for National Geographic. When I came back, you were gone. A part of me still wonders if I pushed you too hard after the wedding… I didn’t see you again until a month ago. It was a Wednesday. You were rocking back on your heels, balancing on that thick yellow line that runs along the subway platform, waiting for the F train. I didn’t know it was you until it was too late, and then you were gone. Again. You said my name; I saw it on your lips. I tried to will the train to stop, just so I could say hello. After seeing you, all of the youthful feelings and memories came flooding back to me, and now I’ve spent the better part of a month wondering what your life is like. I might be totally out of my mind, but would you like to get a drink with me and catch up on the last decade and a half? M

  • File Pdf: palestinian-walks.pdf

Book Summary:

Raja Shehadeh is a passionate hill walker. He enjoys nothing more than heading out into the countryside that surrounds his home. But in recent years, his hikes have become less than bucolic and sometimes downright dangerous. That is because his home is Ramallah, on the Palestinian West Bank, and the landscape he traverses is now the site of a tense standoff between his fellow Palestinians and settlers newly arrived from Israel. In this original and evocative book, we accompany Raja on six walks taken between 1978 and 2006. The earlier forays are peaceful affairs, allowing our guide to meditate at length on the character of his native land, a terrain of olive trees on terraced hillsides, luxuriant valleys carved by sacred springs, carpets of wild iris and hyacinth and ancient monasteries built more than a thousand years ago. Shehadeh's love for this magical place saturates his renderings of its history and topography. But latterly, as seemingly endless concrete is poured to build settlements and their surrounding walls, he finds the old trails are now impassable and the countryside he once traversed freely has become contested ground. He is harassed by Israeli border patrols, watches in terror as a young hiking companion picks up an unexploded missile and even, on one occasion when accompanied by his wife, comes under prolonged gunfire. Amid the many and varied tragedies of the Middle East, the loss of a simple pleasure such as the ability to roam the countryside at will may seem a minor matter. But in Palestinian Walks, Raja Shehadeh's elegy for his lost footpaths becomes a heartbreaking metaphor for the deprivations of an entire people estranged from their land.

Book Summary:

An instant New York Times bestseller! The first in a gripping fantasy duology inspired by West African folklore in which a grieving crown princess and a desperate refugee find themselves on a collision course to murder each other despite their growing attraction—from debut author Roseanne A. Brown. This New York Times bestseller is perfect for fans of Tomi Adeyemi, Renée Ahdieh, and Sabaa Tahir. For Malik, the Solstasia festival is a chance to escape his war-stricken home and start a new life with his sisters in the prosperous desert city of Ziran. But when a vengeful spirit abducts his younger sister, Nadia, as payment to enter the city, Malik strikes a fatal deal—kill Karina, Crown Princess of Ziran, for Nadia’s freedom. But Karina has deadly aspirations of her own. Her mother, the Sultana, has been assassinated; her court threatens mutiny; and Solstasia looms like a knife over her neck. Grief-stricken, Karina decides to resurrect her mother through ancient magic . . . requiring the beating heart of a king. And she knows just how to obtain one: by offering her hand in marriage to the victor of the Solstasia competition. When Malik rigs his way into the contest, they are set on a heart-pounding course to destroy each other. But as attraction flares between them and ancient evils stir, will they be able to see their tasks to the death? "Magic creates a centuries-long divide between peoples in this stunning debut novel inspired by North African and West African folklore. An action-packed tale of injustice, magic, and romance, this novel immerses readers in a thrilling world and narrative reminiscent of Children of Blood and Bone." (Publishers Weekly, "An Anti-Racist Children's and YA Reading List") Don't miss the second book in this epic duology, A Psalm of Storms and Silence!

Book Summary:

Die Literaturbesprechung wendet sich Romanen, Dramen, und Gedichten zu und etabliert am Ende die Literaturgeschichten, die uns noch heute beschaftigen. Die Literaturbetrachtung gewinnt mit den poetischen und fiktionalen Schriften einen Gegenstand, mit dem sie sich bis in den Schulunterricht ausbreiten kann. Gleichzeitig verandert sie den Markt, dem sie sich zuwendet. Im Blick auf das Romanangebot des fruhen 18. Jahrhunderts wird dies deutlich: einen skandalosen, aktuellen, ungemein europaischen Markt nehmen die Leser in Leipzig wie in London vor 1720 wahr, wenn sie den Romanmarkt beruhren, einen Markt, der sich gegenwartig als historischer und politischer unter kaum ertraglichen Manieren den privatesten Nutzungen anbot.

Book Summary:

Die Reihe „Ausgaben Deutscher Literatur des VV. bis XVIII. Jahrhunderts" startete 1967 mit dem Ziel, zur besseren Textkenntnis der vernachlässigten mittleren deutschen und neulateinischen Literatur beizutragen. In der Reihe erscheinen kritische Gesamtausgaben - in einzelnen Fällen auch Auswahlausgaben – der Werke bedeutender Autoren. Die Ausgaben werden in Textbände und Realienbände aufgeteilt. Sie enthalten neben dem Textcorpus, einem kritischen Apparat und einem ausführlichen wissenschaftlichen Apparat auch – soweit vorhanden – Briefwechsel, Tagebücher, Gespräche, Zeugnisse der Zeitgenossen zu Person und Werk des Autors, Bildnisse usw. Daneben gibt es Dokumentationsreihen, in denen einzelne historisch interessante Texte zu einem repräsentativen Überblick über ihre Gattung zusammengestellt sind (Beispiele hierfür sind die Reihen ‚Drama‘ und ‚Roman‘).

Book Summary:

Die Begriffe „Vormoderne“ und „Europa“ haben Konjunktur: In den historisch arbeitenden Kultur- und Geisteswissenschaften wird die klassische Dreigliederung der Epochen in Antike, Mittelalter und Neuzeit zunehmend abgelöst von der Scheidung zwischen Vormoderne und Moderne. Dieser Neuzuschnitt von Zeitkategorien ist nicht zuletzt in einer räumlichen Erweiterung der Perspektiven begründet: Untersuchungen im engen nationalen Gehäuse werden ergänzt und hinterfragt durch Studien zu Verflechtungen auf europäischer und globaler Ebene. Im Zuge dessen erweisen sich auch die überkommenen, ganz in und an (West )Europa entwickelten Epochengliederungen als fragwürdig. Die jüngere Diskussion über fundamentale Zeit- und Raumkategorien hat Konsequenzen für die Forschungspraxis, für die Institutionen der Lehre und Forschung innerhalb der einzelnen Fächer und für die Grenzen zwischen den Disziplinen. Der Band bietet einerseits eine Bestandsaufnahme der Diskussion in verschiedenen Fächern und stellt damit Nutzen und Kosten, Chancen und Risiken der aktuellen Neuvermessung von Raum und Zeit in den Kultur- und Geisteswissenschaften zur Debatte. Andererseits führt das Buch Fallstudien aus der Geschichte Europas zusammen, die die Aktualität der Vormoderne exemplarisch veranschaulichen. Sie zeigen die Vormoderne als fremde Gegenwelt zu unseren eigenen Erfahrungen im Europa der Gegenwart, aber auch als eine ferne Vorgeschichte, aus der Entwicklungslinien wirkmächtig bis in unsere Gegenwart hineinführen.

Book Summary:

Der Jalkut Schimoni ist ein Sammelwerk rabbinischer Auslegungen zur gesamten hebräischen Bibel. Unerforscht ist, nach welchen Kriterien die Auslegungen ausgewählt wurden und ob das Werk als umfassendes Nachschlagewerk für exegetische Fragen, zur Verbindung von Bibelauslegung in Talmud und Midrasch oder zur Reform der rabbinischen Auslegungstradition konzipiert wurde. Die Übersetzung des Werkes ist ein erster Schritt, diese Fragen zu beantworten.

Book Summary:

In der von Hesiod in seinen Werken und Tagen beschriebenen bäuerlichen Lebenswelt ist für Erfolg weit mehr nötig als die bloße Kenntnis landwirtschaftlicher Arbeitsvorgänge. Insbesondere der Arbeitswille und das Bewusstsein für die den Menschen von Zeus vorgegebene Gerechtigkeit sind nach Hesiod entscheidende Kriterien für eine angemessene Lebensführung. Eine weitere, damit eng verbundene Grundvoraussetzung ist das Wissen um Aufbau und Pflege sozialer und religiöser Beziehungen. Erst wenn ein Landwirt diese immateriellen Ressourcen erkennt und aufbringt, ist ihm die erfolgreiche Gewinnung und Nutzung materieller Ressourcen möglich. Mithilfe des kulturwissenschaftlichen Ressourcenkonzepts des Sonderforschungsbereichs 1070 RESSOURCENKULTUREN erschließt die vorliegende Arbeit die poetische Präsentation sowie Bewertung der im Gedicht behandelten sozio-kulturellen Grundlagen und untersucht die Dynamiken zwischen ihnen. Des Weiteren wird verfolgt, wie Hesiod bäuerliche Ressourcen nutzt, um sein eigenes Selbstverständnis als Dichter herauszustellen.****************In the rural world described by Hesiod in his Works and Days, success requires much more than prosaic knowledge of agricultural work processes. Especially, the willingness to work and the awareness of the justice given to mankind by Zeus are, according to Hesiod, crucial criteria for living an appropriate life. Another closely related requirement is the knowledge of establishing and maintaining social and religious relationships. Only in recognizing and raising these intangible resources can a farmer extract and use material resources successfully. Applying the resource concept of the Collaborative Research Centre 1070 RESOURCECULTURES, this study explores the poetic presentation and evaluation of the socio-cultural foundations dealt with in the poem and examines the dynamics between them. It also tracks how Hesiod uses rural resources to highlight and to evaluate his self-image as a poet.

Vergessen, Verändern, Verschweigen und damnatio memoriae im frühen Mittelalter

Book Summary:

Auch das Vergessen hat seine Geschichte. Die Studie verfolgt das Ziel, durch die Überprüfung unterschiedlicher Methoden ein Instrumentarium und eine Nomenklatur für den historischen Umgang mit den mannigfachen Facetten des Vergessens zu entwickeln. Hierzu wird der Blick exemplarisch auf den Wandel der Wahrnehmung von Vergangenheit zwischen Spätantike und dem frühmittelalterlichen Frankenreich gerichtet. Bewusst stehen dabei nicht nur die literarischen Techniken wie etwa die von Laktanz, Gregor von Tours, Fredegar oder der karolingischen Geschichtsschreibung im Vordergrund. Auch in anderen Textsorten wie Inschriften, Hagiographie, Lyrik oder Rechtstexten kommt es zu bewusstem Verschweigen, Verändern und Formen einer damnatio memoriae, um die Wirkung von Geschichte in der Gegenwart zu steuern.
