Book Summary:

English summary: The volume presents a collection of revised and updated contributions to an international conference held in October 2011 on current issues in historical research on early modern knowledge and science and their connections. It looks at the various ways, in which the 'new science' was embedded in traditions, on the on the hand, and concentrates on the joint role of experts and lay persons in its making, on the other. It highlights in particular the various forms of early modern natural history, scientific treatises in a narrower sense of the term, tradiions going back to antiquity, travel accounts, chronicles, correspondences, naturalia, oral accounts and personal observations, which mirror the dialectic relationship between learned and popular knowledge. The relationship of knowledge and science is investigated in particular in connection with early modern balneology and attempts at systematizing knowledge about animals. German description: Dieser Band widmet sich aktuellen Forschungsaspekten von Wissens- und Wissenschaftsgeschichte, insbesondere den inneren Zusammenhangen von popularem Wissen und Wissenschaft. Einerseits werden Anbindungen der Neuen Wissenschaft an Traditionen in den Blick genommen, andererseits die Teilhabe von Experten und Laien an deren Herausbildung. Die verschiedenen Formate fruhneuzeitlicher Naturgeschichtsschreibung - wissenschaftliche Traktate, antike Uberlieferungen, Reisebeschreibungen, Chroniken, Korrespondenzen, Naturalien, mundliche Erzahlungen oder eigene Beobachtungen - vermitteln einen Eindruck der wechselseitigen Beziehungen zwischen gelehrtem und popularem Wissen. Das Verhaltnis von Wissen und Wissenschaft wird insbesondere an den Beispielen balneologischer und tierkundlicher Wissensbestande genauer analysiert.

Book Summary:

Harris focuses on how Afro-Americans involved in the Civil Rights Movement, the Black Power Movement, and the Vietnam War either achieved major objectives or failed to make their lives purposeful. He demonstrates how one or more of these major historical events determined the plot and characterization of seven novels by John Williams, George Davis, Wesley Brown, Alice Walker, John McCluskey, John Killens, and Ishmael Reed. Harris analyzes the vital connections between political awareness and literary consciousness during the 1960s, and explores the quest myth that permeates Afro-American culture.

Book Summary:

The dialogues in this book present a cross-cultural, multidisciplinary critique of racism and the advocacy required to confront its persistence globally. While the essays begin to refocus attention on racism as a challenge to international development, they also call on the international women's movement to support Black women's efforts to realize their own humanity. The authors provide an analysis and a metaphor for Black women across the globe, who are working to transcend their alienation, to validate their own heritage and to escape the tyranny of racial discrimination.The authors provide an analysis and a metaphor for Black women across the globe, who are working to transcend their alienation, to validate their own heritage and to escape the tyranny of racial discrimination.
