Misreading the Bengal Delta

Camelia Dewan
Perilously close to sea level and vulnerable to floods, erosion, and cyclones, Bangladesh is one of the top recipients of development aid earmarked for climate change adaptation. Yet, to what extent do adaptation projects address local needs and concerns? Combining environmental history and ethnographic fieldwork with development professionals, rural farmers, and landless women, Misreading the Bengal Delta critiques development narratives of Bangladesh as a “climate change victim.” It examines how development actors repackage colonial-era modernizing...

New Lives in Anand

Quaderni di Dodis 18

Anders lernen, arbeiten und leben. Für eine Transformation von Pädagogik und Gesellschaft

Die Zunahme der durch die »Neue Steuerung« des Bildungssystems produzierten emotionalen und sozialen Problematiken in Schule und Gesellschaft ist evident. Die Antwort darauf liegt jedoch nicht in einer präziseren sonderpädagogischen Diagnostik, Förderung und Intervention, sondern im Umbau von Schule, Universität und Gesellschaft. Joachim Bröcher plädiert für eine selbstgestaltete Bildungspflicht, ein bedingungsloses Grundeinkommen, die Gründung von selbstbestimmten Community-Projekten (in denen gearbeitet, gelernt und gelebt wird) sowie eine handlungsorientierte, philosophische Pädagogik. Die »Kontrollgesellschaft« (Gilles Deleuze) verwandelt sich...

Tra insegnamento e ricerca. Entre enseignement et recherche: La storia della Rivoluzione francese. L’histoire de la Révolution française

Anna Maria Rao
That is the place of the French Revolution in teaching history? What are the ideological trends and pedagogic messages that are used in school textbooks?

Gli strumenti della cooperazione in rete: Dal catalogo elettronico ai sistemi della ricerca interdisciplinare

Paul Gabriele Weston
Such terms as “metadata”, “web strategies”, “interoperability” are commonly used whenever the perspectives of cultural heritage memories on the web are investigated. The risk that well-established methods of preserving and publishing the output of intellectual and artistic activities could hinder data exchange procedures as well as making the creation of multidisciplinary discovery systems required for carrying out reasearch – even in the humanities – is under assessment. The earliest projects adopted the same electronic format...

Dei gratia rex Sicilie: Scene d’incoronazione divina nell’iconografia regia normanna

Mirko Vagnoni
Following Percy Ernst Schramm’s studies on Staatssymbolik, historians have in general considered medieval royal portraits as images mirroring medieval notions of power and political ideology that can legitimate power and strengthen admiration of the king. This interpretation has also had a crucial impact on the analysis of monarchic ideologies and sacral kingship during the Middle Ages. However, the research prompted in Germany on the social praxis of Memoria has opened up new perspectives, by creating...

Vivere la guerra: percorsi biografici e ruoli di genere tra Risorgimento e primo conflitto mondiale

Laura Guidi
Through the various essays that compose it, the volume gives voice to subjective experiences and perceptions of men and women involved in military conflicts between the Risorgimento period and the Great War: historical phases characterized by deep elements of continuity regarding the symbolic construction of national identity, but also by equally strong watersheds. The comparison between different contexts is valuable in investigating the relationship between gender, nation, and war. Starting from a stereotype that is...
