Animal camouflage by Adolf Portmann( Book )

1 edition published in 1959 in English and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduction: The rugged outline of a mountain peak looks like a human face; the markings on a moth show a skull and crossbones. Mere coincidences we say, and dismiss the matter as another freak of nature. But when we come across an animal that looks like a leaf or a twig, we begin to wonder. This likeness must be more than chance--it must play an important part in the animal's survival. This brings us straight to the crux of our problem: the function of outward appearances. We have all seen insects that are the color of bark and brooding pheasant hens whose feathers seem like the fleeting shadows of their nesting ground. We may have chanced upon a moth whose only protection is the coloring that makes it resemble a wasp. Each of these animals pretends to be something it is not, and it does this in order to survive. Modern armies use camouflage to protect their soldiers, guns, ships, and military installations; the result is proof positive of the defensive value of such techniques. The reader will not be surprised then, if we tell him that our subject has played a prominent part in all discussions about the origin and the evolution of living organisms. Charles Darwin was one of the first to stress the importance of camouflage, and since his day the subject has formed one of the strands of biological theory. This is not to say that the authorities all agree. What some choose to explain as camouflage, others describe in altogether different terms. A host of experimenters has set out to prove the various theories, but always with perfect scientific detachment. The problem of mimicry, in particular, has become a veritable no man's land of biological battle. These are things our book will explore. Casting our glance over a vast canvas, we shall try to trace the meaning of some of the colorful brush strokes that went into its painting
Science fiction in Argentina : technologies of the text in a material multiverse by Joanna Page( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines an unprecedented range of science fiction texts -- including literature, cinema, theater, and comics -- produced in Argentina from the nineteenth to the twenty-first centuries. These works address themes common to the genre across the industrialized world, including techno-authoritarianism, new modes of posthuman subjectivity, and apocalyptic visions of environmental catastrophe. At the same time, Argentine science fiction is fully grounded in the social and political life of the nation. The texts discussed here explore the impact of an uneven modernization, mass migration, dictatorships, crises in national identity, the rise and fall of the Left, the question of Argentina's indigenous heritage, the impact of neoliberalism, and the most recent economic crisis of 2001. Argentine science fiction is also highly reflexive, debating within its pages the role of science fiction and fantasy in the society of its day, and the nature of the text in a world of advancing technology. This book makes important contributions to our understanding of science fiction as a genre, as well as to materialist theories of cultural texts. It will also interest students and scholars researching the culture, history, and politics of Argentina and Latin America
Big Digital Humanities : imagining a meeting place for the humanities and the digital by Patrik Svensson( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Big Digital Humanities has its origins in a series of seminal articles Patrik Svensson published in the Digital Humanities Quarterly between 2009 and 2012. As these articles were coming out, enthusiasm around Digital Humanities was acquiring a great deal of momentum and significant disagreement about what did or didn't?count? as Digital Humanities work. Svensson's articles provided a widely sought after omnibus of Digital Humanities history, practice, and theory. They were informative and knowledgeable and tended to foreground reportage and explanation rather than utopianism or territorial contentiousness. In revising his original work for book publication, Svensson has responded to both subsequent feedback and new developments. Svensson's own unique perspective and special stake in the Digital Humanities conversation comes from his role as director of the HUMlab at Umeå University. HUMlab is a unique collaborative space and Digital Humanities center, which officially opened its doors in 2000. According to its own official description, the HUMlab is an open, creative studio environment where?students, researchers, artists, entrepreneurs and international guests come together to engage in dialogue, experiment with technology, take on challenges and move scholarship forward.? It is this last element?moving scholarship forward? that Svensson argues is the real opportunity in what he terms the?big digital humanities,? or digital humanities as practiced in collaborative spaces like the HUMlab, and he is uniquely positioned to take an account of this evolving dimension of Digital Humanities practice. --
Traces of the old, uses of the new : the emergence of digital literary studies by Amy E Earhart( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Digital Humanities remains a contested, umbrella term covering many types of work in numerous disciplines, including literature, history, linguistics, classics, theater, performance studies, film, media studies, computer science, and information science. In Traces of the Old, Uses of the New: The Emergence of Digital Literary Studies, Amy Earhart stakes a claim for discipline-specific history of digital study as a necessary prelude to true progress in defining Digital Humanities as a shared set of interdisciplinary practices and interests. Traces of the Old, Uses of the New focuses on twenty-five years of developments, including digital editions, digital archives, e-texts, text mining, and visualization, to situate emergent products and processes in relation to historical trends of disciplinary interest in literary study. By reexamining the roil of theoretical debates and applied practices from the last generation of work in juxtaposition with applied digital work of the same period, Earhart also seeks to expose limitations in need of alternative methods--methods that might begin to deliver on the early (but thus far unfulfilled) promise that digitizing texts allows literature scholars to ask and answer questions in new and compelling ways. In mapping the history of digital literary scholarship, Earhart also seeks to chart viable paths to its future, and in doing this work in one discipline, this book aims to inspire similar work in others
Internationalizing "international communication" by Tsan-Kuo Chang( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

International communication as a field of inquiry is, in fact, not very "internationalized." Rather, it has been taken as a conceptual extension or empirical application of U.S. communication, and much of the world outside the West has been socialized to adopt truncated versions of Pax Americana's notion of international communication. At stake is the "subject position" of academic and cultural inquirers: Who gets to ask what kind of questions? It is important to note that the quest to establish universally valid "laws" of human society with little regard for cultural values and variations seems to be running out of steam. Many lines of intellectual development are reckoning with the important dimensions of empathetic understanding and subjective consciousness.In Internationalizing "International Communication", Lee and others argue that we must reject both America-writ-large views of the world and self-defeating mirror images that reject anything American or Western on the grounds of cultural incompatibility or even cultural superiority. The point of departure for internationalizing "international communication" must be precisely the opposite of parochialism - namely, a spirit of cosmopolitanism. Scholars worldwide have a moral responsibility to foster global visions and mutual understanding, which forms, metaphorically, symphonic harmony made of cacophonic sounds

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alice Freeman Palmer : the evolution of a new woman by Ruth Bordin( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alice Freeman Palmer (1855-1902) was one of the most influential figures in expanding academic horizons for women in the United States during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

The history of Mary Prince : a West Indian slave by Mary Prince( Book )

"Interesting and highly valuable first-person narrative of a woman slave who details her experiences in Bermuda and Antigua and also in Britain where she was employed by abolitionist Thomas Pringle.

Ballads and songs of Southern Michigan by Emelyn Elizabeth Gardner( )

After live : possibility, potentiality, and the future of performance by Daniel Sack( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conceives of traditional dramatic theater as a place for taming the future and then conceptualizes how performance beyond this paradigm might stage the unruly nature of futurity. Chapters offer insights into the plays of Beckett, Churchill, Eno, and Gombrowicz, devised theater practices, and include an extended exploration of the Italian director Romeo Castellucci. Through the lens of potentiality, other chapters present novel approaches to minimalist sculpture and dance, then reflect on how the beholder him- or herself is called upon to perform when confronted by such work
Partnering with extremists : coalitions between mainstream and far-right parties in Western Europe by Kimberly A Twist( Book )

3 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As long as far-right parties-known chiefly for their vehement opposition to immigration-have competed in contemporary Western Europe, many have worried about these parties' acceptability to democratic voters and mainstream parties. Yet, rather than treating the far right as pariahs, major mainstream-right parties have included the far right in 15 governing coalitions from 1994 to 2017. Parties do not care equally about all issues at any given time, and Kimberly Twist demonstrates that far-right parties will agree to support the mainstream right's goals more readily than many other parties, making them appealing partners. Partnering with Extremists builds on existing work on coalition formation and party goals to propose a theory of coalition formation that works across countries and over time. The evidence comes from 19 case studies of coalition formation in Austria and the Netherlands, countries where far-right parties have been excluded when they could have been included and included when the mainstream right had other options. The argument is then extended to countries where coalitions are less common, France and the United Kingdom, and to cases of mainstream-right adoption of far-right themes. Twist incorporates both office and policy considerations in her argument and reimagines "policy" to be a two-dimensional factor; it matters not just where parties are located on an issue but how firmly they hold those positions. --
