By Peter Lang AG, Internationaler Verlag der Wissenschaften
ean: 9783034314251, isbn: 3034314256,
Derrida is one of the most influential, controversial and complex thinkers. The book offers a critical evaluation of deconstruction by focusing on the problematic of writing, self and other in the thought of Derrida. It examines how these concepts relate to one another in order to analyse systematically the influence that the concept of alterity has had in deconstructing a certain idea of subjectivity in Western metaphysics. Thea Bellou argues that Derrida’s intellectual project is to

Dimensions of Racism in Advertising: From Slavery to the Twenty-First Century
By Peter Lang Inc., International Academic Publishers
ean: 9781433115486, isbn: 1433115484,
Advertising has had a racial dimension from slavery to the present. Contributors to this book explore the role of institutionalized racism and bigotry in multicultural marketing since its inception in the 1920s. Promoting ethnic diversity in the advertising industry is not just an important regulatory issue but essential for representation of ethnic images in marketing. Dimensions of Racism in Advertising will be useful for both research and teaching purposes. It can be used as a textbook in

Art Museum Libraries and Librarianship
By Scarecrow Press
ean: 9780810859210, isbn: 0810859211,
Although most art museums possess a library of some kind, these facilities are often hidden from the public and seldom discussed in library schools despite the important role they play as substantial research venues. Co-published with the Art Libraries Society of North America, Art Museum Libraries and Librarianship serves as an introduction to the field of art museum librarianship and its diverse settings. Editor Joan Benedetti has compiled contributions from practicing art museum librarians

An Introduction to Visual Communication: From Cave Art to Second Life (2nd edition)
By Peter Lang Inc., International Academic Publishers
ean: 9781433142031, isbn: 1433142031,
Technological changes have radically altered the ways in which people use visual images. Since the invention of photography, imagery has increasingly been used for entertainment, journalism, information, medical diagnostics, instruction, branding and communication. These functions move the image beyond aesthetic issues associated with art and into the realm of communication studies. This introductory textbook introduces students to the terminology of visual literacy, methods for analyzing

The Doppelgänger (German Visual Culture)
By Peter Lang AG, Internationaler Verlag der Wissenschaften
ean: 9783034319614, isbn: 3034319614,
The Doppelgänger – the double, twin, mirror image or alter ego of someone else – is an ancient and universal theme that can be traced at least as far back as Greek and Roman mythology, but is particularly associated with two areas of study: psychology, and German literature and culture since the Romantic movement. Although German language literature has been a nexus for writing on the Doppelgänger, there is a paucity of scholarly work treating a broader selection of cultural products from

The Essential Enthymeme: Propositions for Educating Students in a Modern World
By Peter Lang AG, Internationaler Verlag der Wissenschaften
mpn: 70, ean: 9783034320511, isbn: 3034320515,
The enthymeme in education is essential because it reflects what humans do when they think. It informs not only how we make inferences about the world to discover new knowledge, but also how we express those discoveries to influence the minds of others. Thus, the enthymeme provides an effective pedagogical approach to the analysis and synthesis of ideas in the classroom. In this volume, such an approach is applied to composition instruction, second-language learning, advertising, specialized

By Peter Lang Inc., International Academic Publishers
ean: 9781433134548, isbn: 1433134543,

These chapters take a significant step toward overcoming the dearth of published case studies in public relations beyond North America. Written by established scholars and professionals who had access to some of the

Media, NASA, and America’s Quest for the Moon (Mediating American History)
By Brand: Peter Lang International Academic Publishers
ean: 9781433103001, isbn: 1433103001,
When Apollo 11 landed on the moon in July 1969, it capped not only the most remarkable engineering feat in history, but also a decade-long battle over how much access the press and public should have to the manned space program. Now, forty years after an awed world watched Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin bounce across the surface of the moon, this book tells the behind-the-scenes story of how NASA and the U.S. media were often at odds, but ultimately showed extraordinary cooperation in bringing

Mapping Media Ecology: Introduction to the Field (Understanding Media Ecology)
By Peter Lang Inc., International Academic Publishers
mpn: 9781433127632, ean: 9781433127632, isbn: 1433127636,
Until now, the academic foundations of media ecology have been passed down primarily in the form of edited volumes, often by students of Neil Postman, or are limited to a focus on Marshall McLuhan and/or Postman or some other individual important to the field. Those volumes are invaluable in pointing to key ideas in the field; they provide an important and informed account of the fundamentals of media ecology as set forth at the field’s inception. Yet there is more to the story. Offering an
