Memory plays an integral part in how individuals and societies construct their identity. While memory is usually considered in the context of a stable, unchanging environment, this collection of essays explores the effects of immigration, forced expulsions, exile, banishment, and war on individual and collective memory. The ways in which memory affects cultural representation and historical understanding across generations is examined through case studies and theoretical approaches that underscore its mutability. Memory and Migration is a truly interdisciplinary book featuring the work of leading scholars from a variety of fields across the globe. The essays are collaborative, successfully responding to the central theme and expanding upon the findings of individual authors. A groundbreaking contribution to an emerging field of study, Memory and Migration provides valuable insight into the connections between memory, place, and displacement.

This book examines the experiences of 49 second-generation exiles from South Africa. Using “generation” as an analytical concept, it investigates the relational, temporal and embodied nature of their childhoods in terms of kinship relations, life cycle, cohort development and memory-making. It reveals how child agents exploited the liminal nature of exile to negotiate their sense of identity, home and belonging, while also struggling over their position and power in formal Politics and informal politics of the everyday. It also reflects upon their political consciousness, identity and sense of civic duty on return to post-apartheid South Africa, and how this has led to the emergence of the Masupatsela generational cohort concerned with driving social and political change in South Africa.

This volume will be a collection of chapters from authors with wide experience in their research field. The purpose is to produce a coherent book that reflects the common theme of theory in medical thinking and multidisciplinary research practice. In this context "theory" relates to frameworks of concepts, facts, models etc that help to inform practitioners (clinicians, scientists and engineers) both within their own fields and as they seek to share dialogue with colleagues from other fields. Multidisciplinary Approaches to Theory in Medicine will therefore be integrative across a broad spectrum of fields within medicine. To achieve this the chapters will be associated with others in a number of meaningful ways. Each chapter will share a number of points of contact that will include at least two of the following: Similar biomedical area (e.g., immunity, neuroscience, endocrinology, pathology, oncology, haematology, ...) Similar multidisciplinary theoretical contexts (e.g., modelling, analysis, description, visualization, complex systems, ...) Similar multidisciplinary medical issues and questions (e.g., clinical practice, decision making, informatics, ...) Uniquely explores role of interdisciplinary exchange in the development and expansion of medical theory Timely and insightful essays on the growth and development of medical theories from some of the world's top clinicians and medical researchers, including Werner Arber, Frank Vertosick, and David Weatherall Assembles diverse perspectives on medicine and physiology from biology, statistics, ethics, computer science, philosophy, history Uniquely illuminates the social and historical processes through which theoretical research translates into clinical practice Reveals the growing role of technology, especially computational modelling, in changing the nature of Western medicine

Die österreichisch-ungarische Nordpolexpedition (1872-1874) entdeckte nicht nur das Franz-Joseph-Land, sie setzte auch kurzfristig Österreich-Ungarn als Staat mit polaren Interessen auf die europäische Karte des späten 19. Jahrhunderts. Die Rückkehr der Polarfahrer von Vardø in Norwegen über Hamburg nach Wien im September 1874 war von einer umfassenden europaweiten medialen Aufmerksamkeit begleitet. Insbesondere in Wien sollte in den folgenden Wochen die Expedition zu einem Mikrokosmos der Monarchie stilisiert und zum Mittelpunkt aktueller sozialer, politischer und kultureller Diskurse werden. Die vorliegende Monographie ist die erste ausführliche kulturwissenschaftliche Arbeit über die Expedition. Sie unterscheidet sich von vorangegangen Arbeiten durch ihren Fokus auf den Empfang sowie die europäische Rezeption der Expedition.

Social Identities: Multidisciplinary Approaches attempts to make sense of the increasingly complex ways in which we define ourselves and others. It recognises that we are not simply individuals, or members of a certain class or a certain nationality. Rather, each of us comprises a rich blend of various identities. The book provides not only an eclectic spectrum of the forms of identity and influences through which identities are formed, but also critical treatment of the theoretical tools used to understand these phenomena.
