Das berühmte Standardwerk von Simone de Beauvoir. Die universelle Standortbestimmung der Frau, die aus jahrtausendealter Abhängigkeit von männlicher Vorherrschaft ausgebrochen ist, hat nichts an Gültigkeit eingebüßt.

Gender Studies in Architecture

Space, Power and Difference

Author: Dörte Kuhlmann

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1134069235

Category: Architecture

Page: 274

View: 5498

Analyzing a range of ideas from biological, evolutionary and anthropological theories to a variety of feminist, psychoanalytic, poststructuralist and constructivist discourses, this book provides a comprehensive introduction to the problematics of gender and power in architectural and urban design. Topics range from conceptions of postulated matriarchal architecture in Old Europe to contemporary technologies of control; from the mechanisms of gaze to architectural performatives; from the under-representation of women in the planning profession to the integration of gender issues to the curriculum. The particular strengths of the book lie in its inclusiveness and critical analysis. It is not a partisan defence of feminism or any other theory, but a critical introduction to the issues relating to gender. Moreover, the conclusions reach beyond a narrow gender studies perspective to social and ethical considerations that are unavoidable in any responsible architectural or urbanistic practice. With its broad range and balanced analysis of different theories, the book is suitable as an overview of gender studies in architecture and useful for any designer who is concerned with the social effects of the built environment.

Naturalia non turpia

sex and gender in ancient Greece and Rome

2. unveränderte Auflage 2016 Der Rostocker Altertumswissenschaftler Werner Krenkel ist in der Fachwelt vor allem als Kenner der römischen Satire, besonders des Lucilius, als Varroforscher und als einer der Wegbereiter der Sexualwissenschaften der Antike bekannt. Eine von ihm selbst getroffene Auswahl aus seinen Studien, die häufig an schwer zugänglicher Stelle publiziert worden sind, liegt nun im Nachdruck vor. Sie umfasst Aufsätze zu Lucilius, zu Varro und zum antiken Mimus, zum Grammatiker Nonius, und vor allem Krenkels Untersuchungen zur Sexualität in den antiken Gesellschaften. Basierend auf quellenkundlicher Akribie und umfassender terminologischer Aufarbeitung und kundig durch archäologische Zeugnisse unterstützt, haben diese Untersuchungen nichts von ihrer Relevanz eingebüßt. Die Forschung hat sich, gerade auch im Bereich der Gender Studies, intensiv weiter entwickelt. Deshalb freuen sich die Herausgeber, der scientific community diese grundlegenden und anregenden Materialien wieder zur Verfügung stellen zu können. "(W)hoever sets out these days to investigate the one or the other aspect of such ancient 'naturalia', will find here a vast thesaurus of information on classical material as well as on modern scholarship concerning this subject. And he will warmly thank the two editors, and especially the author Werner Krenkel, for providing this rich, well-organised collection of a formerly marginalised or neglected field..." (Bernard Kytzler, Scholia Reviews 16/2007) The Rostock University classicist Werner Krenkel is known in his field above all for his expertise on Roman satire, especially the works of Lucilius, for his work on Varro, and for being one of the pioneers in the study of sexuality in the ancient world. He himself has chosen the studies which appear in this collection, many of them now hard to find in their original places of publication. Included are essays on Lucilius, on Varro and on classical mime, on the grammarian Nonus, and above all Krenkel’s studies of sexuality in ancient societies. Based on a meticulous study of sources and a comprehensive terminological analysis, and well-informed on archaeological evidence, these studies have lost none of their relevance. Research, especially in the discipline of Gender Studies, has since undergone intensive development. For this reason the editors are pleased to make available again these groundbreaking and stimulating works. "masterful presentation" "(...) whoever sets out these days to investigate the one or the other aspect of such ancient 'naturalia', will find here a vast thesaurus of information on classical material as well as on modern scholarship concerning this subject." "(...) rich, well-organised collection of a formerly marginalised or neglected (...) field, a field of immense importance and multiple diversifications."

Athens on Trial

The Antidemocratic Tradition in Western Thought

Author: Jennifer Tolbert Roberts

Publisher: Princeton University Press

ISBN: 1400821320

Category: History

Page: 426

View: 4673

The Classical Athenians were the first to articulate and implement the notion that ordinary citizens of no particular affluence or education could make responsible political decisions. For this reason, reactions to Athenian democracy have long provided a prime Rorschach test for political thought. Whether praising Athens's government as the legitimizing ancestor of modern democracies or condemning it as mob rule, commentators throughout history have revealed much about their own notions of politics and society. In this book, Jennifer Roberts charts responses to Athenian democracy from Athens itself through the twentieth century, exploring a debate that touches upon historiography, ethics, political science, anthropology, sociology, philosophy, gender studies, and educational theory.

Naked Truths

The articles in Naked Truths demonstrate the application of feminist theory to a diverse repertory of classical art: they offer topical and controversial readings on the material culture of the ancient Mediterranean. This volume presents a timely, provocative and beautifully illustrated re-evaluation of how the issues of gender, identity and sexuality reveal 'naked truths' about fundamental human values and social realities, through the compelling symbolism of the body.
