Coming of Age in Byzantium (Millennium-studien / Millennium Studies) by Despoina Ariantzi
English | Dec. 18, 2017 | ISBN: 3110576465 | 318 Pages | PDF | 10 MB

The various phases of life and their manifestations in theory and social reality constitute a well-established area of research in the fields of western medieval studies and ancient history. In this respect the Byzantine East has been widely neglected. This volume will focus on the Byzantine experience of adolescence, which may be defined as the biological transition from childhood to adulthood as well as the social and psychological experience of leaving the care of parents, guardians and family groups and the gradual integration into adult society.
Byzantine Ecocriticism: Women, Nature, and Power in the Medieval Greek Romance (The New Middle Ages)

Byzantine Ecocriticism: Women, Nature, and Power in the Medieval Greek Romance (The New Middle Ages) by Adam J. Goldwyn
English | 31 Dec. 2017 | ISBN: 331969202X | 240 Pages | PDF | 3.03 MB

Byzantine Ecocriticism: Women, Nature, and Power in the Medieval Greek Romance applies literary ecocriticism to the imaginative fiction of the Greek world from the twelfth to fifteenth centuries. Through analyses of hunting, gardening, bride-stealing, and warfare, Byzantine Ecocriticism exposes the attitudes and behaviors that justified human control over women, nature, and animals; the means by which such control was exerted; and the anxieties surrounding its limits. Adam Goldwyn thus demonstrates the ways in which intersectional ecocriticism, feminism, and posthumanism can be applied to medieval texts, and illustrates how the legacies of medieval and Byzantine environmental practice and ideology continue to be relevant to contemporary ecological and environmental concerns.

The Living Politics of Self-Help Movements in East Asia

The Living Politics of Self-Help Movements in East Asia By Tom Cliff
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 246 Pages | ISBN : 9811063362 | 4.54 MB

This collection elucidates the complexity of living politics in the 21st century, considering how self-help groups draw on shared regional traditions, and how they adapt their actions to the diverse formal political environments in which they operate. It considers the nexus between ideas and action in a world where the conventional ‘right-left’ divide has a decreasing hold on the political imagination. Examining grassroots self-help actions as responses to everyday life problems, it argues that whilst action may be initiated by encounters with ideas that come into the community from outside, often the flow of cause and effect works in the opposite direction. Focusing on countries both politically dynamic and with long-standing historical and cultural connections - China (including Inner Mongolia), Japan, Taiwan and Korea – this book fills a significant gap in the literature on social movements, demonstrating that survival itself is a political act.
