This paper examines the impact of World War II in the home front as represented in short‐stories published in the U.S. wartime journal Common Ground. Published between 1940 and 1949, the magazine combined literature and social and cultural critique in its progressive analysis of matters of race, immigration, citizenship, and civil rights. Although Common Ground’s intellectual community committed itself to protect unity at the home front, it published complex representations of the theme of homecoming in particular, conveying instances of latent violence at the national level that challenged the sense of ‘homeliness.’ The analysis attempts a combination of theories of the nation with Gaston Bachelard’s considerations on the poetics of space and Sigmund Freud’s notion of the uncanny.
A vegetação nativa do sertão nordestino é rica em espécies forrageiras nos estratos herbáceo, arbustivo e arbóreo. Estudos têm revelado que acima de 70% das espécies botânicas da caatinga participam significativamente da composição da dieta dos ruminantes domésticos. Estrategicamente, as espécies lenhosas são fundamentais no contexto de produção e disponibilidade de forragem no semiárido Nordestino. Objetivou-se com este trabalho: (1) Quantificar a composição química bromatológica e os compostos fenólicos de leguminosas nativas; (2) Avaliar as características de degradação ruminal e o efeito biológico de plantas taniníferas baseado na técnica de produção de gás in vitro (bioensaio); (3) Estudar os efeitos de dietas constituídas de forrageiras nativas na síntese de nitrogênio microbiano in vitro com marcador 15N e nos parâmetros de fermentação pela técnica de produção gases. Os resultados quanto à composição química e quantificação dos compostos fenólicos das leguminosas taniníferas catingueira (Caesalpinea bracteosa), aroeira (Astronian urundeuva), leucena (Leucaena leucocephala), jureminha (Desmanthus virgatus) e do capim buffel (Cenchrus ciliaris L.) são apresentados. Estas plantas também foram avaliadas por incubação in vitro...
In the era of globalisation, studies of migration focus on mobility, deterritorialised identities and diasporic forms of belonging across nation state boundaries. Indeed, uprootedness from the soil of home and place has resulted in a general condition of ‘homelessness’ in late modernity, referred to as the diasporic condition. The search for an ‘absolute home’ has become the Holy Grail for pilgrims in late modernity and forms the basis for this study, which explores the ‘migrant’s conundrum’: does home move where the migrant moves, or is it forever tied to the primordialism of place, soil and kinship? Through an examination of the construction of homeliness amongst an immigrant community of 500 households from the village of Hadchit, North Lebanon, who reside in Western Sydney, Australia it will be shown how their strategies of home-building depend upon the capacity to imagine themselves as being united by kinship, a shared village of origins and as part of the broader communal Maronite identity (Mwarne), which now transcends nation state boundaries. Patrilineage (bayt), village (day’aa) and sect (ta’eefa) have historically defined Lebanese sectarian identities and now, as this study shows, are deployed as a strategy of home-building and community construction in diaspora. ...; yes
Martin Heidegger's interpretation of the ancients was born out of something like a crisis
in the interpretation of the Greeks, which can be characterized as nothing other than the
realization of the idea that the Greek philosophers put a serious question mark over existence.
This idea, which had its germination in Prussia with Jakob Burckhart and his teacher, but first
came to be seriously cultivated in the Philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche, was the first in depth
investigation into whether the Greeks, on the one hand, questioned existence or, on the other
hand, put a question mark over existence. To question existence is rather innocuous, since it
amounts to little more, in the end, than a child looking up at the stars and asking what it all
means. To put a question mark over existence, however, is another business entirely.
For the Greeks, as the life work of Martin Heidegger amply demonstrates, the nature of
Greek thinking and the objects towards which it is directed follows so absolutely from the tragic
view of the human person that, in a certain sense, philosophy is Greek and could only have
developed in Greece. Perhaps stating it a little less categorically, philosophy could have
developed elsewhere at least to the extent that something like they way the Greeks understood
life was at the forefront: presence...
This study examines the role of things in the making of New Netherland in the seventeenth century and the formation of New York in the early eighteenth century. With an attention to the translations of form and transculturations of meaning for objects, which have often led peripatetic lives, I focus on previously marginalized crafts and everyday objects like books, tea tables, chairs, hearth tiles, and other domestic goods found in peoples’ homes, to describe the way things connected people and places in early modern Dutch trade networks. Through a careful analysis of objects of material culture and depictions of material culture I focus on how the colony was physically constructed and ideologically imagined internally by the colonists and externally by other interested parties throughout Atlantic world.
My research on the making, circulation, and consumption of things in and from New Netherland develops intersecting narratives of the past, some of them regional and localized, others cross-cultural, transnational, and global. By connecting artifacts, objects, and things to larger narratives it is possible to write a new history of materiality and the making of New Netherland, primarily in the seventeenth century but also in later histories. In what follows...
It has become a condition for modern people to be ‘on the move’ (Bauman
1998, Rushdie 1995, Diken 1998). We move physically, mentally and, especially,
virtually. The new global space and the use of new technologies undermine the old
conception of Home. These days Home has to be revitalized. It is important, because
at home we try tactics ‘to home oneself´. An ability even more important than ever,
because we move away from the hegemonic idea about one home to the tactics to
feel at home, eventually in more mobile ways. I have examined how some children at
the age 10-11 make themselves at home. How they domesticate, capture territories
What do our children do to get place, space and rooms, which belong to them?
How do they do home?
‘To home oneself’ can be understood as a self-technology or a tactic (de
Certeau, 1984), a tactic to make space around oneself on the places one stay. A way
to commit oneself in between the well known and the un-known. It is a tactic one can
use other places that at home, also in schools or in other kind of pedagogical
relationships. - Tornou-se uma condição dos tempos modernos o “estar em movimento”
(Bauman 1998, Rushdie 1995, Diken 1998). Nós movimentamo-nos fisicamente...
In this work, I analyze the theoretical boundaries between the concepts of immigration and diaspora as represented in Brian Moore’s novel The luck of Ginger Coffey. This novel raises the possibility of discussing different concepts of diaspora and immigration, as well as various aspects, like the perception of the experience, the fluidity of terms regarding mobility, the criteria that define diaspora and immigration, the concepts of home and homeliness, and assimilation.
