European Identity and the Representation of Islam in the Mainstream Press: Argumentation and Media Discourse

European Identity and the Representation of Islam in the Mainstream Press: Argumentation and Media Discourse by Salomi Boukala
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 351 Pages | ISBN : 3319933132 | 4.09 MB

This book combines media studies and linguistics with theories of national and supranational identity to offer an interdisciplinary approach to the study of European identity/ies and news discourses. Taking representations of ‘Islamist terrorism’ and Turkey’s accession to the European Union as case studies, it analyses the discursive construction of supranational European identity through the discursive distinction of ‘Us’ and ‘Them’. Moreover, it compares the media’s representations of the ‘Other’ in different socio-political moments in Europe- from times of European integration (2004-5) to the European dystopia (2015-16) through the discourse analysis of specific Greek, British and French newspapers. This timely work synthesizes classic argumentative approaches and Gramscian thought in the study of media discourses by focusing on the Aristotelian concept of topos and introducing the concept of ‘hegemonic knowledge’. This pioneering work will appeal to scholars across the fields of linguistics, social anthropology, European politics, and media studies.

The Environment-Conflict Nexus: Climate Change and the Emergent National Security Landscape

The Environment-Conflict Nexus: Climate Change and the Emergent National Security Landscape by Francis Galgano
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 187 Pages | ISBN : 3319909746 | 27.24 MB

The aim of this book is to demonstrate how environmental factors have caused an evolution in the landscape of national security since the end of the Cold War. Through relevant case studies, the scope of the problem on the national security landscape due to environmental stressors is illuminated, examined, and synthesized with climate-related data. Human variables such as governance, GDP, and vulnerability are taken into account, and are compared against environmental factors to more accurately determine the causative agents of regional conflicts which threaten national security. These case studies comprise the majority of the text, and they show how individual conflicts are uniquely influenced by environmental stress with variations from situation to situation. This book will be of interest to government and military professionals, and may serve as a resource for college courses in the areas of military geography, international affairs, and sustainability studies.

Translating War: Literature and Memory in France and Britain from the 1940s to the 1960s

Translating War: Literature and Memory in France and Britain from the 1940s to the 1960s by Angela Kershaw
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 300 Pages | ISBN : 3319920863 | 3.94 MB

This book examines the role played by the international circulation of literature in constructing cultural memories of the Second World War. War writing has rarely been read from the point of view of translation even though war is by definition a multilingual event, and knowledge of the Second World War and the Holocaust is mediated through translated texts. Here, the author opens up this field of research through analysis of several important works of French war fiction and their English translations. The book examines the wartime publishing structures which facilitated literary exchanges across national borders, the strategies adopted by translators of war fiction, the relationships between translated war fiction and dominant national memories of the war, and questions of multilingualism in war writing. In doing so, it sheds new light on the political and ethical questions that arise when the trauma of war is represented in fiction and through translation. This engaging work will appeal to students and scholars of translation, cultural memory, war fiction and Holocaust writing.

Spinning Strings and Correlation Functions in the AdS/CFT Correspondence

Spinning Strings and Correlation Functions in the AdS/CFT Correspondence by Juan Miguel Nieto
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 188 Pages | ISBN : 3319960199 | 13.73 MB

This book addresses several aspects of the integrable structure of the AdS/CFT correspondence. In particular it presents computations made on both sides of the AdS/CFT correspondence, at weak and at strong coupling. On the string theory side of the correspondence, the book focuses on the evaluation of the energy spectrum of closed string solutions moving in some deformed backgrounds that preserve integrability. On the gauge theory side, it explores various formal problems arising in the computation of two and three-point functions by means of the Algebraic Bethe Ansatz and the Quantum Inverse Scattering method. The book features numerous results on integrability in the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence. Self-contained and pedagogical, it includes general discussions and detailed presentations on the use of integrable systems techniques and their applications.
