The Figure of the Animal in Modern and Contemporary Poetry

The Figure of the Animal in Modern and Contemporary Poetry by Michael Malay
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 265 Pages | ISBN : 3319706659 | 3.06 MB

This book argues that there are deep connections between ‘poetic’ thinking and the sensitive recognition of creaturely others. It explores this proposition in relation to four poets: Marianne Moore, Elizabeth Bishop, Ted Hughes, and Les Murray. Through a series of close readings, and by paying close attention to issues of sound, rhythm, simile, metaphor, and image, it explores how the poetry cultivates a special openness towards animal others.

Moduli in Modern Mapping Theory By Olli Martio
English | PDF | 2009 | 368 Pages | ISBN : 0387855866 | 10.84 MB

The purpose of this book is to present a modern account of mapping theory with emphasis on quasiconformal mapping and its generalizations. The modulus method was initiated by Arne Beurling and Lars Ahlfors to study conformal mappings, and later this method was extended and enhanced by several others. The techniques are geometric and they have turned out to be an indispensable tool in the study of quasiconformal and quasiregular mappings as well as their generalizations. The book is based on recent research papers and extends the modulus method beyond the classical applications of the modulus techniques presented in many monographs.

Race, Nation and Gender in Modern Italy: Intersectional Representations in Visual Culture

Race, Nation and Gender in Modern Italy: Intersectional Representations in Visual Culture by Gaia Giuliani
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 309 Pages | ISBN : 1137509155 | 9.02 MB

This book explores intersectional constructions of race and whiteness in modern and contemporary Italy. It contributes to transnational and interdisciplinary reflections on these issues through an analysis of political debates and social practices, focusing in particular on visual materials from the unification of Italy (1861) to the present day. Giuliani draws attention to rearticulations of the transnationally constructed Italian ‘colonial archive’ in Italian racialised identity-politics and cultural racisms across processes of nation building, emigration, colonial expansion, and the construction of the first post-fascist Italian society. The author considers the ‘figures of race’ peopling the Italian colonial archive as composing past and present ideas and representations of (white) Italianness and racialised/gendered Otherness.
