Bodies in Transition
47,20 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This volume engages from the perspective of the ancient Mediterranean world with current debates in the field of cultural studies revolving around the idea of embodied knowledge. In particular, it deals with the dissolution of the concept of the ideal body as a repository of knowledge through instances of deformation or hybridization. The starting point comprises a series of case studies of less than perfect bodies: bodies that are misshapen, stigmatized, fragmented, as well as hybrid human/animal creatures, transgendered persons, and bodies on the cultural periphery of the classical world. All of these examples represent deviations from the ‘normal’ order of things and evoke familiar feelings of alienation. The ordered knowledge that has shaped the body is subverted and falls into disorder. One strategy for dealing with this is to canonize transgression in visual form. Fluid bodies are captured in the image and domesticated, creating a visual order in disorder. The body-as-ruin is a fixed figure of fluidity and thus especially receptive to attributions of meaning, which helps explain its persistence as a cultural trope. It allows for the observation of cultural change.

Kenilworth Member, Upper Cretaceous, Book Cliff...

The Book Cliffs of eastern Utah contain some of thebest exposures to shallow marine strata in the world. The cliffs extend almost continuously for 300 kmfrom Helper, Utah to Grand Junction in Colorado. Along these cliffs are numerous canyons which haveprovided researchers with an excellent threedimensional image of the geology that has beenexposed. Within these strata two clastic wedges havebeen identified: the Star Point Formation and theBlackhawk Formation. The Blackhawk Formation containssix members, of which the Kenilworth Member is thefocus of this work. Through a petrographic study, itwas noted that moving down-dip on the shoreface thegrain size decreased as well as the quartz content.These trends support the expected transition from asand-rich shoreface environment to a mud-rich shelfenvironment. The shelf bodies are anomalous sand-richlenses or lobate bodies completely encased in shelfmudstones. The origin of these bodies is still underdebate but petrographically these bodies are similarto the lower attached shoreface sandstones andsupport both the detached shoreface hypothesis andsubaqueous channels hypothesis proposed by Pattison(2006).

Annie Leibovitz at Work
46,30 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Annie Leibovitz, our most celebrated living photographer, explains how her pictures are made Leibovitz addresses young photographers and readers interested in what photographers do, but any reader interested in contemporary history will be fascinated by her account of one of the richest bodies of work in the photographic canon. The subjects include photojournalism, studio work, photographing dancers and athletes, working with writers, and making the transition from shooting with film to working with digital cameras. Originally published in 2008, this revised and updated edition brings Leibovitz's bestselling book back into print.

Measurement of Oscillator Strengths and Photoio...
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Oscillator strength of a transition provides useful information about how strong a transition is as compared to other transitions originating from the same energy level. It has significant importance in various fields of science such as plasma physics, radiation physics and astrophysics. Since the emission and absorption spectra of many astronomical bodies are comparable to the measured spectra in laboratory, therefore, accurately measured transition probabilities (or f-values) in laboratory are required while studying the dynamics of stellar atmosphere and plasma. Photoionization cross-section, on the other hand, is also of great significance due to its numerous applications in space research, astrophysics, radiation protection, laser designing and controlled thermonuclear research. The data on the oscillator strengths and photoionization cross section from the excited states of calcium and strontium is least reported in literature. This book, therefore, provides new and useful information on oscillator strengths and photoionization cross-section to the scientific community.

Comparative Politics of Southeast Asia
69,78 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This textbook provides a comprehensive introduction to the political systems of all ASEAN countries and Timor-Leste from a comparative perspective. It investigates the political institutions, actors and processes in eleven states, covering democracies as well as autocratic regimes. Each country study includes an analysis of the current system of governance, the party and electoral system, and an assessment of the state, its legal system and administrative bodies. Students of political science and regional studies will also learn about processes of democratic transition and autocratic persistence, as well as how civil society and the media influence the political culture in each country.
