Rubbish Theory

How do objects that are of little worth become valuable? In Rubbish Theory, Michael Thompson argues that there are two mutually exclusive cultural categories that are socially imposed on the world of objects: a transient category and a durable category. However, he identifies a 'region of flexibility', where a transient object, which declines in value and life span, can in fact linger on in a valueless and timeless limbo of 'rubbish', until it is discovered by a creative individual and transferred across into the durable category. Who are the people who are able to affect this value-creating transfer, and which types of people feel at home with transient objects, durable objects and rubbish objects? Thompson links stability and change on the one hand, with materiality on the other, providing a rich analysis of social and cultural dynamics. First published in 1979, this book has become a classic in its field. This second edition includes a new introduction, afterword, and a foreword which describes the book's huge influence across the arts and social sciences - from cultural studies to anthropology - over the four decades since it was first published, placing it in a contemporary context that shines light on the relevance of the book today.

Taught by an international adviser to leaders of Fortune 500 companies, nonprofits, and governments, this eye-opening course reveals how you can actively improve your cultural intelligence in an increasingly globalized world. Based on groundbreaking research, these 24 lectures address dynamics and customs related to working, socializing, dining, marriage and family - all the areas necessary to help you function with a greater level of respect and effectiveness wherever you go. You'll also encounter practical tips and crucial context for greeting, interacting with, and even managing people from other parts of the world. In the first half, you'll analyze 10 cultural value dimensions that researchers have identified as helpful for comparing cultures; and you'll see how these "archetypes" play out in day-to-day lives. In the second half, you'll look at 10 cultural clusters around the world that - when combined with your understanding of the 10 cultural dimensions - provide strategic insight into how to be more effective as you live, work, and travel in our globalized world. Why do people from certain cultures have little regard for time? Why might working overtime reflect poorly on you in Scandinavia? Why should you avoid using your left hand when interacting with someone from the Arab world? You'll find out the answers to these and other intriguing questions in Customs of the World.

SOURCES AND IMPACTS OF R
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book focuses on the sources and impacts of research and development (R&D) and innovation in Norway. The Norwegian case is rather special. One the one hand, the level of R&D and innovation is low in Norway compared to other industrialized countries. On the other hand, the Norwegian economy has proven to be very robust when it comes to economic growth. This is combined with an alleged low tech industrial structure. The words puzzle and paradox figures predominantly in the discussions about Norway s innovative and economic performance. It is in this context that this book explores and analyzes the main sources and effects of R&D and innovation. This book is organized in three different parts that examine the sources of innovation and their links to performance at different levels of analysis. In the first part the book explores the existence of sectoral specialization patterns linked to technology and entry & exit dynamics in the Norwegian economy. The second part is devoted to analyzing the main sources of R&D and innovation among firms.In the third part we explore how innovation policies interact with the firm level.

Practical Immunology
71,90 € *

The immune system is the body's natural defense in fighting organisms. There are two kinds of immunity, natural and acquired. The first known as the innate immune system, representing a non-specific response to antigen (i.e. substance to which the body regards as foreign or potentially harmful), and the second, the adaptive immune system, which displays a high degree of memory and specificity. On the one hand, The innate system represents the first line of defense to an intruding pathogen. The response evolved is therefore rapid, and is unable to memorize the same pathogen that the body exposed to it in the future. On the other hand, the cells and molecules of the adaptive system possess slower temporal dynamics, but possess a high degree of specificity and evoke a more potent response on secondary exposure to the pathogen. Acquired Immunity results from recovery from infection or arises by virtue of artificial inoculation. It may be produced in two ways, namely, by active or passive immunization.

Past Landscapes

Past Landscapes presents theoretical and practical attempts of scholars and scientists, who were and are active within the Kiel Graduate School "Human Development in Landscapes" (GSHDL), in order to disentangle a wide scope of research efforts on past landscapes. Landscapes are understood as products of human-environmental interaction. At the same time, they are arenas, in which societal and cultural activities as well as receptions of environments and human developments take place. Thus, environmental processes are interwoven into human constraints and advances.This book presents theories, concepts, approaches and case studies dealing with human development in landscapes. On the one hand, it becomes evident that only an interdisciplinary approach can cover the manifold aspects of the topic. On the other hand, this also implies that the very different approaches cannot be reduced to a simplistic uniform definition of landscape. This shortcoming proves nevertheless to be an important strength. The umbrella term 'landscape' proves to be highly stimulating for a large variety of different approaches.The first part of our book deals with a number of theories and concepts, the second part is concerned with approaches to landscapes, whereas the third part introduces case studies for human development in landscapes. As intended by the GSHDL, the reader might follow our approach to delve into the multi-faceted theories, concepts and practices on past landscapes: from events, processes and structures in environmental and produced spaces to theories, concepts and practices concerning past societies.ContentsPrefacePast Landscapes: The Dynamics of Interaction between Society, Environment, and CultureAnnette Haug, Lutz Käppel, and Johannes MüllerIntroductionFrom Theories, Concepts and Practices on Human Development in LandscapesAnnette Haug and Johannes MüllerLandscape and the GSHDL 2007-2017: Ten Years of ResearchJohannes MüllerI: Past Landscapes - Theories and ConceptsThe Disentanglement of Landscapes: Remarks on Concepts of Socio-Environmental Research and Landscape ArchaeologyJohannes MüllerOn Melting Grounds: Theories of the LandscapeAntonia DavidovicRitual and Landscape: Theoretical ConsiderationsV.P.J.

His doctoral thesis at hand comprises thestate-of-the-art in microscopic traffic modeling andsimulation methodology. The first part deals with amicroscopic traffic flow theory. Models describingthe individual acceleration, deceleration andlane-changing behavior are formulated and theemerging collective traffic dynamics are investigatedby means of simulations. The models and simulationtools presented provide the methodical prerequisitesfor the second part in which a novel concept of atraffic-adaptive control strategy for Adaptive CruiseControl (ACC) systems is presented. The impact ofsuch systems on the traffic dynamics can solely beinvestigated and assessed by traffic simulations. Inorder to ensure that ACC systems are implemented inways that improve rather than degrade trafficconditions, the thesis proposes an extension of ACCsystems towards traffic-adaptive cruise control bymeans of implementing an actively jam-avoidingdriving strategy. The presented concept is aiming atmoving forward adaptive and cooperative technologiesfor vehicle-based intelligent transportation systems(ITS).

This study seeks to investigate an interesting and understudied case of the persistence and retention of immigrant students in postsecondary education. Specifically, the study examines the way family dynamics of second-generation Cambodian college students influence their success in postsecondary education. Currently, much of the academic literature examining Southeast Asian Americans concentrates on other ethnic groups besides Cambodians, who are less numerous in education, and pays little attention to the unique convergence of family, cultural, and historical forces and conditions at play in these young adults educational experience in the United States. Therefore, the purpose of this research is to build on previous works that are similarly related to the issues at hand, and to develop a deeper, more nuanced understanding of the educational trajectory of these young people, with the ultimate hope of improving their educational experiences.
