Clemens Zimmermann, Lutz Klinkhammer (Eds.): Cinema as a Political Media. Germany and Italy Compared, 1945–1950s
Films tell stories - and they tell of the social and political circumstances of their creation. This can be seen particularly well in the German and Italian postwar films studied by the international group of authors of the new volume of the Online-Schriften des DHI Rom. Neue Reihe| Pubblicazioni online del DHI Roma. Nuova serie. How do the filmmakers process the Fascist and the National Socialist past? How do they portray the other?
New Issue of the heiEDUCATION Journal. Transdisciplinary Studies on Teacher Education
With the title “Self-Reassurances”, this sixth issue regards the ongoing process of self-reflection as a quality feature of teacher education, which finds expression in a probing attitude towards one’s own subject, a self-reflective stance towards oneself, and in an experimental curiosity about communication and transfer. Following historical, theoretical, and empirical approaches, the essays collected here contribute new insights, questions, and suggestions to this discussion.
The new Journal of Transcultural Studies is online. The thematic section comprises three articles devoted to the transcultural memories of Mediterranean port cities. This issue is complemented by Anne Ring Petersen's thought-provoking plea against hegemonic, monocultural notions of community and her investigation of the role public art and culture can play in the collective reimagining of cultural citizenship, home and belonging.
Radmila Mladenova et al. (Eds.) : Antigypsyism and Film
Films shape our perception of the world. This also applies to Antiziganism, which is still taken for granted on the screen today. Scientists, filmmakers and human rights activists pursue this problem and deal with questions of ethics, strategies of subversion and Antiziganism in comparison to other resentments besides concrete examples of Antiziganistic depictions.
Marek Konopka, Angelika Wöllstein and Ekkehard Felder (Eds.): Bausteine einer Korpusgrammatik des Deutschen
A descriptive, consistently corpus-based academic grammar of German, aimed at a professional linguistic audience, does not yet exist. The scientists at the Leibniz Institute for the German Language are therefore working on individual components of such a grammar and publishing them in the new publication series "Bausteine einer Korpusgrammatik des Deutschen". In the spirit of open science, components of the scientific process are freely accessible and usable.
