Of sugar and snow : a history of ice cream making by Jeri Quinzio( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Was ice cream invented in Philadelphia? How about by the Emperor Nero, when he poured honey over snow? Did Marco Polo first taste it in China and bring recipes back? In this first book to tell ice cream's full story, Jeri Quinzio traces the beloved confection from its earliest appearances in sixteenth-century Europe to the small towns of America and debunks some colorful myths along the way. She explains how ice cream is made, describes its social role, and connects historical events to its business and consumption. A diverting yet serious work of history, Of Sugar and Snow provides a fascinat
Working hard, drinking hard : on violence and survival in Honduras by Adrienne Pine( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Honduras is violent." Adrienne Pine situates this oft-repeated claim at the center of her vivid and nuanced chronicle of Honduran subjectivity. Through an examination of three major subject areas--violence, alcohol, and the export-processing (maquiladora) industry--Pine explores the daily relationships and routines of urban Hondurans. She views their lives in the context of the vast economic footprint on and ideological domination of the region by the United States, powerfully elucidating the extent of Honduras's dependence. She provides a historically situated ethnographic analysis of this fra

Perspectives on lexicography in Italy and Europe( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lexicography is a very special field of research, in which theory arises from concrete problems and practice moulds on theoretical assumptions in a way of working that is at the same time technical and innovative. The volume offers an overview of the main aspects of the state of art of lexicographical research in Europe, with contributions concerning both historical and synchronic dictionaries and a wide spectrum of the main European languages (French, English, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish). Several contributions show the beneficial effects deriving from the close connection between modern lexicography and information technology, which in the last few years profoundly changed the way of designing, realising and using dictionaries. There is an appendix that contains some reflections on lexicography and translation, one of the most important functional goals for both monolingual and bilingual dictionaries

"This shipwreck of fragments" : historical memory, imaginary identities, and postcolonial geography in Caribbean culture and literature( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In light of, and in response to, the popular perception of the Caribbean as an epitome of cultural hybridity and improvisation, this book seeks to further examine Caribbean cultural identities along the lines of race, class, nationalism, and history. Drawing on a variety of genres of literature and popular music, the present volume includes not only pieces that stress the shaping and reshaping of Afro-Caribbean cultural identities and the significance of hybridization, but also those that think against the grain and pursue questions which have not received enough critical attention. This latter task can be seen in the attempt to probe the phenomenon that the Caribbean's image as a tropical getaway in metropolitan popular imaginations tends to eclipse its troubled pasts, traumatic memories, and current (and recurrent) problems which elude the rhetoric of cultural hybridity, presupposing instead a certain non-conflictual diversity or racial equality in the relatively innocuous realm of 'culture'. Although nuanced among themselves on certain issues, the individual chapters together highlight a body of work which is distinct from the bulk of Anglo-American academic productions on the Caribbean, as the majority of the textual and cultural materials treated here come from either the Hispanic or Francophone Caribbean

English as a lingua franca : studies and findings( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

English as a lingua franca has become a hot topic in Applied Linguistics and English Studies. While it has been a subject of controversy for some time, linguistic observations on actual use have largely been missing out of the debate. This is now changing fast, and the study of English as a Lingua Franca has become a vibrant research field. This book reflects achievements of the growing field; it presents a good selection of empirical findings, thus providing substance to arguments. It comprises contributions from pioneers and established scholars in the field, along with reports from substantial ongoing research projects. The papers offer insights into the workings of English as a lingua franca in different contexts - conversational, academic, professional, and business situations. They tackle essential theoretical issues, analyse linguistic and interactional features of ELF, and discuss attitudes towards ELF. The studies are firmly anchored in analyses of authentic language in social interaction, some also using survey and interview data. Many papers also touch upon debates on language policy and linguistic ideologies. This collection of papers from the key areas of current ELF research is of interest to English linguists and applied linguists, graduate and undergraduate students of English, educational and language planners, and teachers of English
Race and citizen identity in the classical Athenian democracy by Susan Lape( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Race and Citizen Identity in the Classical Athenian Democracy, Susan Lape demonstrates how a racial ideology grounded citizen identity. Although this ideology did not manifest itself in a fully developed race myth, its study offers insight into the causes and conditions that can give rise to race and racisms in both modern and pre-modern cultures. In the Athenian context, racial citizenship emerged because it both identified who the citizens were and explained why they deserved to share in the goods of citizenship." "By investigating Athenian law, drama, and citizenship practices, this study shows how racial citizenship worked in practice to consolidate national unity and to account for past Athenian achievements. It also considers how Athenian identity narratives fueled Herodotus' and Thucydides' understanding of history and causation."--Jacket
It's go in horizontal : selected poems, 1974-2006 by Leslie Scalapino( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Internationally recognized as one of the most innovative writers in America today, Leslie Scalapino persistently challenges the boundaries of many forms in which she works-poetry, prose, plays, and more. This outstanding volume includes work from sequential and serial poems written over thirty-two years. The poems demonstrate ideas and inventions in writing, and how one writing invention leads to the next. Three series are selected from the long poem way, about which Philip Whalen said, ""She makes everything take place in real time, in the light and air and night where all of us live

Living history : encountering the memory and the history of the heirs of slavery( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focusses on the several forms of reconstructing the slave past in the present. The recent emergence of the memory of slavery allows those who are or who claim to be descendents of slaves to legitimize their demand for recognition and for reparations for past wrongs. Some reparation claims encompass financial compensation, but very often they express the need for memorialization through public commemoration, museums, and monuments. In some contexts, presentification of the slave past
Voices and silence in the contemporary novel in English( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume examines the various processes at work in expressing silence and excessive speech in contemporary novels in English, covering the whole spectrum from effusiveness to muteness. Even if in the postmodern episteme language is deemed inadequate for speaking the unspeakable, contemporary authors still rely on voice as a mode of representation and a performative tool, and exploit silence not only as a sign of absence, block or withdrawal, but also as a token of presence and resistance. Logorrhoea and reticence are not necessarily antithetical as compulsive verbosity may work as a smokescreen to sidestep the real issues, while silences and gaps may reveal more than they hide. By submitting their texts to both expansion and retention, hypertrophy and aphasia, writers persistently test the limits of language and its ability to make sense of individual and collective stories. The present volume analyses the complex poetics of silence and speech in fiction from the 1960's to the present, with special focus on Will Self, Graham Swift, John Fowles, Kazuo Ishiguro, Jenny Diski, Lionel Shriver, Michele Roberts, Margaret Atwood, Jonathan Safran Foer, Salman Rushdie, Arundhati Roy, Zadie Smith, Jamaica Kincaid, Ryhaan Shah and J.M. Coetzee

Our distance from God : studies of the divine and the mundane in western art and music by James D Herbert( )

His argument unfolds over five case studies and spans four centuries: the architecture and artworks that glorified Louis XIV at Versailles in the seventeenth century, the interaction of libretto and music in Richard Wagner's Ring of the Nibelung, Claude Monet's enormous and resplendent paintings of water lilies mounted at the Orangerie of Paris in 1927, the inaugural performance in 1962 of Benjamin Britten's War Requiem for the consecration of the new Anglican cathedral at Coventry, and Robert Wilson's recent installation based on the Passion, 14 Stations."--Jacket
