Download Animalities by Michael Lundblad (.ePUB)

Animalities: Literary and Cultural Studies Beyond the Human by Michael Lundblad (Editor)
Requirements: ePUB Reader, 2.3MB
Overview: New and cutting-edge work in animality studies, human-animal studies, and posthumanism

Representations of animality continue to proliferate in various kinds of literary and cultural texts. This pioneering volume explores the critical interface between animal and animality studies, marking out the terrain in relation to twentieth-century literature and film. The range of texts considered here is intentionally broad, answering questions like, how do contemporary writers such as Amitav Ghosh, Terry Tempest Williams, and Indra Sinha help us to think about not only animals but also humans as animals? What kinds of creatures are being constructed by contemporary artists such as Patricia Piccinini, Alexis Rockman, and Michael Pestel? How do ‘animalities’ animate such diverse texts as the poetry of two women publishing under the name of ‘Michael Field’, or an early film by Thomas Edison depicting the electrocution of a circus elephant named Topsy? Connecting these issues to fields as diverse as environmental studies and ecocriticism, queer theory, gender studies, feminist theory, illness and disability studies, postcolonial theory, and biopolitics, the volume also raises further questions about disciplinarity itself, while hoping to inspire further work ‘beyond the human’ in future interdisciplinary scholarship.

Download Entrepreneurship by Jan-Peter Ferdinand (.PDF)

Entrepreneurship in Innovation Communities: Insights from 3D Printing Startups and the Dilemma of Open Source Hardware by Jan-Peter Ferdinand
Requirements: Any PDF Reader, 2.6mb
Overview: Drawing on empirical insights from the field of desktop 3D printing, this book elaborates the concept of innovation communities as a pattern of open and distributed innovation. As these communities spur a fruitful exchange of explorative, open source knowledge, they represent a novel mode of “doing innovation”, which considerably differs from established practices in market and business realms. Hence, the people that participate in these collective endeavors often develop entrepreneurial ambitions and start to exploit community-based innovations commercially.
The book presents deep insights on the institutional idiosyncrasies of innovation communities, the associated dilemma of entrepreneurship and the strategies of 3D-printing startups to face the corresponding challenges.

Download Business in a Changing Climate by Kaija Belfry Munroe (.PDF)

Business in a Changing Climate: Explaining Industry Support for Carbon Pricing by Kaija Belfry Munroe
Requirements: Any PDF Reader, 1.4mb
Overview: Climate change skeptics and business pundits alike are convinced that any public policy instruments used to curtail environmental degradation are antithetical to the interests of the corporate community. However, many companies have actually come out in favour of carbon pricing.
In Business in a Changing Climate, Kaija Belfry Munroe examines this counterintuitive action and, in doing so, explains how large firms determine their preferences for public policy options. Her analysis of thirteen industrial associations and seventeen firms from industries such as petrochemical, forestry, mining, and steel, reveals that, despite the higher costs, these industries prefer carbon pricing over voluntary agreements. Based on enlightening interviews with executives, government, and NGO officials, Belfry Munroe argues that the acceptance of climate change policy by companies is determined by the risks posed to capital investments and investor concern.
Business in a Changing Climate is the first book to ask major pollution emitting industries in Canada what their preferences are with respect to climate change.

Download Douglas Sirk, Aesthetic … by Victoria L. Evans (.ePUB)

Douglas Sirk, Aesthetic Modernism and the Culture of Modernity by Victoria L. Evans
Requirements: ePUB Reader, 1.4MB
Overview: The first truly interdisciplinary analysis to link Douglas Sirk’s striking visual aesthetic to key movements in twentieth century art and architecture, this book reveals how the exaggerated artifice of Sirk’s formal style emerged from his detailed understanding of the artistic debates that raged in 1920s Europe and the post-war United States.

With detailed case studies of Final Chord and All That Heaven Allows, Victoria Evans demonstrates how Sirk attempted to dissolve the boundaries of cinema by assimilating elements of avant-garde art, architecture and design into the colour, composition and setting of many of his most well-known films. Treating Sirk’s oeuvre as a continuum between his German and American periods, Evans argues that his mise-en-scene was the result of an interdisciplinary, transnational dialogue, and illuminates the broader cultural context in which his films appeared by establishing links between archival documents, Modernist manifestos and the philosophical writings of his peers.

Download …First World War and Arts by Anne-Marie Einhaus (.ePUB)

The Edinburgh Companion to the First World War and the Arts (Edinburgh Companions to Literature) by Anne-Marie Einhaus, Katherine Isobel Baxter
Requirements: ePUB Reader, 5 MB
Overview: The First World War continues to be seen as a cultural as well as a political rift in the early twentieth century. This collection explores literary and artistic responses to the war’s upheavals across a wide range of media and genres, from poetry to pamphlets, sculpture to television documentary, and requiems to war reporting. Rather than looking at particular forms of artistic expression in isolation and focusing only on the war and inter-war period, the essays collected in this volume approach artistic responses to the war from a wide variety of angles and – where appropriate – pursue their inquiry into the present day. What means and approaches were employed to respond to the shock of war? How and why have literary and artistic responses to the war changed over time? How far are later works of art responses not only to the war itself, but to earlier cultural production? These are key questions that the volume seeks to answer.
