Culture and the Senses (Ethnographic Studies in Subjectivity, #3)
by Prof Kathryn Geurts
Adding her stimulating and finely framed ethnography to recent work in the anthropology of the senses, Kathryn Geurts investigates the cultural meaning system and resulting sensorium of Anlo-Ewe-speaking people in southeastern Ghana. Geurts discovered that the five-senses model has little relevance in Anlo culture, where balance is a sense, and balancing (in a physical and psychological sense as well as in literal and metaphorical ways) is an essential component of what it means to be human. Muc...
by David W. Haines and Carol Mortland
At the turn of the century, America is both retrenching and expanding, becoming more restrictive and more expansive, more utilitarian and, more value- and religion-oriented. As was true a century ago, the flow of these changes is very much a story of immigrants, their lives in America, and the changing lives of those they join. This book examines the interaction of immigrants and the native-born in nine widely varying locales, including Richmond, VA, St. Louis, West Palm Beach, FL, Tacoma, WA, G...

The Meaning of Culture
by Kenneth Allan
Building upon the insights of postmodernism, this book argues for an approach to studying culture that has as its basis the social construction of meaning and reality and emphasizes micro-level processes and emotion. In general, postmodernism privileges the structure of culture and posits that due to identifiable social dynamics, the structure of culture has become fragmented and has left the experience of cultural reality by human actors pluralistic, uncertain, and emotionally flat. This emphas...
Mass Media and Politics
by Jan E. Leighley
The author models the discussion of each topic in this text on the social scientific process by asking if theories exists to explain personal observations in politics and the media and if there is evidence to support the theories. End-of-chapter Active Learning exercises provide real-world examples of important concepts and ask students to collect and analyze data from various print and electronic media sources. The text includes an entire chapter on agenda setting--the media's ability to insert...
Welsh Armorial Porcelain
by Howell G. M Edwards
Armorial porcelains comprised the output of most European ceramics factories in the 18th and 19th Centuries in response to the large quantity of armorial porcelain services that were being imported from China bearing the coats of arms and crests of aristocratic families. Whereas these armorial services have been identified and covered for most porcelain manufactories the information relevant to their production by the two relatively short-lived Nantgarw and Swansea China Works has not been addre...

Jean Franco explores Mexican women's struggle for interpretive power in relation to the Catholic religion, the nation, and post-modern society; and examines the writings of women who wrote under the shadow of recognized male writers, as well as the works of more marginal figures.

Anna Akhmatova Et La Poaesie Europaeenne
A partir de la figure centrale d'Anna Akhmatova, emblematique de l'age d'argent russe, a travers les complexes rapports d'opposition et de filiation que la poesie russe entretient avec l'Europe depuis le debut du XIXe siecle, des chercheurs, des poetes, des traducteurs s'interrogent sur l'existence d'une " poesie europeenne ", unifiee par le regard de celle qui, de son pays a la frontiere de deux continents, y est a la fois exterieure et en est tres profondement l'heritiere. Les notions comparat...
Regna and Gentes (Transformation of the Roman World, #13)
In the research on "The transformation of the Roman world" relatively little attention has been paid to the transformation of early medieval peoples and the development of their communities into kingdoms, and we lack a comparative study on this subject. The aim of this volume is, therefore, to examine the relationship between gens and regnum by systematically comparing the "Germanic" and non-Germanic successor states of the Roman Empire, a question that leads to important results about the role...
Remains of the Soviet Past in Estonia
by Francisco Martinez
What happens to legacies that do not find any continuation? In Estonia, a new generation that does not remember the socialist era and is open to global influences has grown up. As a result, the impact of the Soviet memory in people?s conventional values is losing its effective power, opening new opportunities for repair and revaluation of the past. Francisco Martinez brings together a number of sites of interest to explore the vanquishing of the Soviet legacy in Estonia: the railway bazaar in T...
