Drawing mainly on advertisements and comics in Chinese newspapers, Singaporean scholar and educator Yeo Mang Thong demonstrates how Singapore was an important hub for artists who travelled to and lived in Singapore. Yeo’s research features amongst other things essays on sojourning artists, and fills a gap in scholarship on the pre-war visual arts scene in Singapore. Originally in Chinese, this English translation aims to bring his research to a broader audience.
A constellation of thoughts by 25 established and emerging scholars who plot the indices of modernity and locate new coordinates within the shifting landscape of art. These newly commissioned essays are accompanied by close to 200 full-colour image plates.
Supplements 1-14 have Authors sections only; supplements 15- include an additional section: Parasite-subject catalogue.
The volume presents a unique cross-section of contemporary research in the broad field of migration and exile studies. Its particular focus is on the manner in which ideas, methodologies, scholarship and innovation, developed in German-speaking Europe, were transferred to Britain and the USA after 1933. The transformative effect of this exodus of talent upon the host cultures, and the corresponding impact of the host cultures upon the refugees, helped produce the groundbreaking work of German-speaking refugees in diverse areas. The essays include surveys of the contributions of exiles to academic disciplines and to art and design, and fresh examinations of the work of prominent refugees like Wittgenstein, as well as less well known figures such as Nina Rubinstein and Gaby Schreiber.
No disease can exist by itself but rather each must be viewed as the result of some specific interaction between man and his environment. This fact is appreciated even by people in the most primitive of civilisations and prompts them to ask the basic question: 'Why did I develop this disease'? The astute clinician goes beyond establishing a diagnosis and asks similar questions of himself and his patient. Frequently a singular observation resulting from this type of inquiry provides the working hypothesis for the epidemiologist who again asks the same question, not of the individual but of a definable population at risk. As a science, epidemiology is bound to the laws of logic and statistics, but clearly it must go beyond this point. The epidemiologist faced with a statistic ally significant observation must also question" its biologic relevance. He must evaluate the consistency of his findings with the more estab lished features of the disease under study. He must also be sufficiently imaginative to challenge his results with additional studies, different in their methodologic approach; and, of great importance, he must have the courage to be wrong. But epidemiologic studies alone can never determine the specific aetiology of a disease. Other scientific disciplines with their own inherent limitations are also required. Thus, in cancer research, the laboratory investigator frequently employs animal models, but the applicability of results obtained to humans is always subject to question.
Transmission Image: Visual Translation and Cultural Agency offers a challenging survey of the burgeoning debate about visual culture in a global perspective. Bringing together scholarly perspectives on places ranging from China and India to Nigeria, and from the Philippines and Syria to Germany, this volume proposes a truly global outlook on the study of visual culture in both a contemporary and an historical perspective. Addressing key theoretical issues, the contributors cover a wide range of art forms and visual media, highlighting the complex cultural codification of images and its impact on the study of visual culture and globalization.
The excitatory amino acids (EAAs) as neurotransmitters are of vast and rapidly expanding interest. This volume relates current knowledge of the EAAs back to the synapse, where many of their physiologically relevant actions must occur. Excitatory Amino Acids and Synaptic Transmission is the first book to do so. A multinational team of experts have contributed not only novel, but in some cases, controversial material, reflecting the competition between research groups on both sides of the Atlantic. Key Features * Features a complete glossary * Includes one common reference list * Useful as a teaching tool for undergraduates and postgraduates * Can be used as a reference text for experts * Presents a marriage of up-to-date molecular biology and biophysics with a traditional approach to the function of synapses in the central nervous system
This book is for senior undergraduate or postgraduate students who want an insight into some modern approaches to metamorphic petrology. Its aims are to explain, in reasonably simple, informal terms, the processes underlying (i) metamorphic reactions and (ii) the production of micro structures in metamorphic rocks, these currently being the things that interest me most, geologically. The first aim requires discussion of equilibrium factors, reaction kinetics and reaction mechanisms, empha sising both the complexity of realistic reactions and the need to combine the chemical and microstructural approaches to them. The second aim requires discussion of deformation, recovery, recrystallisation and grain growth processes, with emphasis on experiments on silicate minerals. The book concludes with a general attempt to relate chemical and physical processes in metamorphism, although it will be clear from reading earlier chapters (especially Chapter 4) that the two aspects can rarely be separated completely in detailed metamorphic studies. Petrological and experimental investigations of metamorphic reactions and microstructural development are advancing so rapidly these days that students are faced with an ever-increasing volume of information and a relatively rapid obsolescence of data. So, in this book I do not try to be comprehensive, or to present much so-called 'factual' information. Instead, I deal more with basic principles, in the hope that these will guide the student in his or her encounters with the details of specific metamorphic problems.
