  • Un florilège de mythes, de contes et de légendes permet de pénétrer dans l'imaginaire de Laponie Au temps jadis, bien avant que les hommes aient appris à domestiquer les rennes, un jeune Lapon était parti à la chasse. Il avait déjà chassé toute la matinée dans la montagne, quand un épais brouillard se leva, l'empêchant de voir à un mètre devant lui. Mais il entendait des cris de berger appelant ses bêtes, et le son de clochettes qui semblait venir d'un nombreux troupeau. Et quand le brouillard se leva, il aperçut une jeune fille belle comme le jour, revêtue d'une tunique bleue, endormie auprès d'une souche. Un troupeau de rennes domestiques paissait dans l'herbe auprès d'elle. Le jeune homme devina que c'était la Fille du Soleil, dont ses parents lui avaient souvent parlé. A l'état de veille, elle est invisible, mais quand elle dort, on peut la voir et la faire prisonnière, avec tout son troupeau. Si l'on s'y prend adroitement, on peut même la transformer en être humain et la garder auprès de soi. Mais il faut l'embrasser avant qu'elle ne se réveille. Elle est d'une beauté surnaturelle, comme d'ailleurs tous les rennes de son troupeau.

  • Stranded Encyclopedias, 1700-2000 Nouv.

    In Stranded Encyclopedias, 1700-2000: Exploring Unfinished, Unpublished, Unsuccessful Encyclopedic Projects, fourteen scholars turn to the archives to challenge the way the history of modern encyclopedism has long been told. Rather than emphasizing successful publications and famous compilers, they explore encyclopedic enterprises that somehow failed. With a combined attention to script, print, and digital cultures, the volume highlights the many challenges facing those who have pursued complete knowledge in the past three hundred years. By introducing the concepts of stranded and strandedness, it also provides an analytical framework for approaching aspects often overlooked in histories of encyclopedias, books, and learning: the unpublished, the unfinished, the incomplete, the unsuccessfully disseminated, and the no-longer-updated. By examining these aspects in a new and original way, this book will be of value to anyone interested in the history of encyclopedism and lexicography, the history of knowledge, language, and ideas, and the history of books, writing, translating, and publishing.

  • This book is the first major work that addresses a core question in biomedical research: the question of acceptable risk. The acceptable level of risks is regulated by the requirement of proportionality in biomedical research law, which state that the risk and burden to the participant must be in proportion to potential benefits to the participant, society or science. This investigation addresses research on healthy volunteers, children, vulnerable subjects, and includes placebo controlled clinical trials. It represents a major contribution towards clarifying the most central, but also the most controversial and complex issue in biomedical research law and bioethics. The EU Clinical Trial Directive, the Council of Europe's Oviedo Convention (and its Additional Protocol), and national regulation in member states are covered. It is a relevant work for lawyers and ethicists, and the practical approach makes a valuable tool for researchers and members of research ethics committees supervising biomedical research.

  • By looking at the later Wordsworth's ekphrastic writings about visual art and his increased awareness of the printed dimension of his work, Simonsen calls attention to what is uniquely exciting about this neglected body of work, and argues that it complicates traditional understandings of Wordsworth based on his so-called Great Decade.

  • Geographies of Embodiment provides a critical discussion of the literatures on the body and embodiment, and humanism and post-humanism, and develops arguments about "otherness" and "encounter" which have become key ideas in urban studies, and studies of the city. It situates these arguments in a wider political context, looking at power-relations through case studies at urban, national and transnational scales.
    These arguments are situated across disciplinary boundaries, at the borderline between between philosophy and social science that is associated to critical phenomenology, and reaches across Human Geography, Sociology, Philosophy, Anthropology, Cultural Studies and Urban Studies.

  • This book examines the ethics, politics and aesthetics of veganism in contemporary culture and thought. Traditionally a lifestyle located on the margins of western culture, veganism has now been propelled into the mainstream, and as agribusiness grows animal issues are inextricably linked to environmental impact as well as to existing ethical concerns. This collection connects veganism to a range of topics including gender, sexuality, race, the law and popular culture. It explores how something as basic as one's food choices continue to impact on the cultural, political, and philosophical discourse of the modern day, and asks whether the normalization of veganism strengthens or detracts from the radical impetus of its politics. With a Foreword by Melanie Joy and Jens Tuidor, this book analyzes the mounting prevalence of veganism as it appears in different cultural shifts and asks how veganism might be rethought and re-practised in the twenty-first century.
