Ex-Centric Migrations examines cinematic, literary, and musical representations of migrants and migratory trends in the western Mediterranean. Focusing primarily on clandestine sea-crossings, Hakim Abderrezak shows that despite labor and linguistic ties with the colonizer, migrants from the Maghreb (Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia) no longer systematically target France as a destination, but instead aspire toward other European countries, notably Spain and Italy. In addition, the author investigates other migratory patterns that entail the repatriation of émigrés. His analysis reveals that the films, novels, and songs of Mediterranean artists run contrary to mass media coverage and conservative political discourse, bringing a nuanced vision and expert analysis to the sensationalism and biased reportage of such events as the Mediterranean maritime tragedies.

Bringing theory and practice together, African Cinema and Human Rights argues that moving images have a significant role to play in advancing the causes of justice and fairness. The contributors to this volume identify three key ways in which film can achieve these goals: documenting human rights abuses and thereby supporting the claims of victims and goals of truth and reconciliation within larger communities; legitimating, and consequently solidifying, an expanded scope for human rights; and promoting the realization of social and economic rights. Including the voices of African scholars, scholar-filmmakers, African directors Jean-Marie Teno and Gaston Kaboré, and researchers whose work focuses on transnational cinema, this volume explores overall perspectives, and differences of perspective, pertaining to Africa, human rights, and human rights filmmaking alongside specific case studies of individual films and areas of human rights violations. With its interdisciplinary scope, attention to practitioners' self-understandings, broad perspectives, and particular case studies, African Cinema and Human Rights is a foundational text that offers questions, reflections, and evidence that help us to consider film's ideal role within the context of our ever-continuing struggle towards a more just global society.

Postcolonial Locations seeks to clarify the meaning of ‘the postcolonial’ through close textual readings, and prioritises material and located readings over more abstract theoretical discussions; it seeks to re-orient the field by providing practical explorations of what the discipline is for. The book begins with an introduction of the key theoretical debates in the field – between the universal and the particular; the global and the local – but it then goes on to demonstrate, via a series of close textual readings, that these distinctions are not always useful and that we can achieve a more comprehensive and complete reading of the multiple times, places and texts in which colonial power is both exerted and fought. An engaging and comprehensive guide to contemporary postcolonial studies, this book is essential reading for students as well as professors.

This collection of interviews is a diamond, remarkable in the way that it assembles so many of the major strains of Glissant's thought, and stunning in the expansive erudition at work in the composition of that thought. Two structuring experiences inform the writer's reflections on language and poetic engagement. On the one hand, there is the acculturation of his French intellectual ancestry, begun in the Martinican colonial system and continued in his mature student years in Paris, with the achievement of a Doctorate at the Sorbonne in 1980. On the other, there is his genetic heritage as an Antillean, nurtured in the Creole language of a people whose nearly forgotten history he will take pains to redeem. A lifelong interrogation of these two vital experiences of language are crucial to Glissant's concept of Relation, viewed as a transformative and vital process intrinsic to the project of poetics. Relation reverberates throughout Glissant's consideration of the many topics broached in this volume: medieval Europe and the creation of nation-states, the evolution of the epic and its global iterations, decolonization, creolization, landscapes and cultures, political engagement vs. the task of the writer, globality, questions of identity and Being. Absolutely the best introduction to Glissant's thought.

The essays in this volume examine and evaluate responses to immigration pressures in Western countries. Contributors tackle questions concerning the integrity of modern nation-states, the meaning of citizenship and the relevance of sovereignty in an increasingly interdependent world. They also seek to demonstrate how migration flows relate to larger global problems such as unequal economic development, population growth, ethnic strife and environmental degradation. The chapters represent a balance between insights from academic research on migration issues and the pragmatic and experimental views of policy-makers.

This conference volume takes a look at the political and economic obstacles in the way of European integration. Attempting to forecast the state of Europe's future, experts discuss such issues as whether the democratic legitimacy of the European Parliament should be strengthened, whether new rules of decision-making are needed for a governing Council or Commission, and whether or not a second chamber should serve the political needs of the individual member states. These topics are fleshed out by a thorough analysis of two dueling sets of economic obstacles. The first concerns the challenge presented by the potential inclusion of Eastern European countries not highly developed and in need of economic and financial support. The second involves the establishment of the European Monetary Union and the controversial fiscal policies that would result. Horst Siebert and his colleagues illustrate not only how these issues affect the nature of the union established, but, more importantly, how these policy decisions may influence the fate of those countries left uninvited. This book will interest students and scholars of international economics, particularly those tracking the fate of this evolving union.

Topics of migration, mobility, and borders gained a new relevance in the world after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York. The world has become acutely aware that national borders have taken on a different meaning and are no longer secure mechanisms that provide for the safety of any country's citizens. At the same time, international organizations and agreements have encouraged the movement of people as well as goods across borders. The authors of this volume describe how borders have become constructed and permeated through analyses on a range of topics, including migration, colonialism, refugees, minority politics, international politics, and identity politics. This group of international contributors address how these issues are situated in different parts of the world, including Europe, Southeast Asia, Australia, and the United States. Thomas Geisen, has a master of arts in politics and sociology and a Diploma in Social Work, having studied at the Technical University of Social Work in Saarbrcken, the University of Trier, and London Guildhall University. He is lecturer and researcher at the University of Zrich. Anthony Andrew Hickey is professor of sociology at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, North Carolina. He received his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. in Development Sociology at Cornell University, in New York. He has taught at George Mason University (U.S.A.) and the University of Hannover (Germany) and served as department head of sociology at George Mason University and dean of The Graduate School at Western Carolina University. Allen Karcher holds an associates degree with further studies at the University of Chicago, UICC, Washington University, Woodbrooke College (U.S.A.) and Bradford University (England).

This study examines short stories written by ethnic and women writers between the 1880s and 1920s and focuses on these stories' reflection of changes in the United States, particularly those caused by (im)migration and emancipation movements. Ethnicity and gender are the guiding categories in the analysis of migration, miscegenation, and transculturation in cultural contact zones. This detailed investigation gives voice to a broad spectrum of writers from Native, African-, German-, Jewish-, Chinese-, and Mexican-American backgrounds, ultimately leading to a reconsideration of the canon of American literature. The evolving patterns developed in Migration - Miscegenation - Transculturation provide a context for the analysis of ethnicity and gender in Western societies in the twenty-first century.

Today, reliable software systems are the basis of any business or company. The continuous further development of those systems is the central component in software evolution. It requires a huge amount of time- man power- as well as financial resources. The challenges are size, seniority and heterogeneity of those software systems. Christian Wagner addresses software evolution: the inherent problems and uncertainties in the process. He presents a model-driven method which leads to a synchronization between source code and design. As a result the model layer will be the central part in further evolution and source code becomes a by-product. For the first time a model-driven procedure for maintenance and migration of software systems is described. The procedure is composed of a model-driven reengineering and a model-driven migration phase. The application and effectiveness of the procedure are confirmed with a reference implementation applied to four exemplary systems.
