Download Heidelberger Gelehrtenlexikon 1933-1986 by Dagmar Drüll PDF

By Dagmar Drüll

Das "Heidelberger Gelehrtenlexikon 1933-1986" stellt den letzten Bestandteil eines größeren Projekts dar, das eine vollständige Dokumentation aller an der Universität Heidelberg seit ihrer Gründung 1386 tätig gewesenen und besoldeten Lehrer zum Ziel hat. Der neue Band 1933-1986 ist die erste systematische Zusammenstellung aller hauptamtlich an der Universität beschäftigten Professoren (ordentliche und außerordentliche), die zwischen 1933 und 1986 ernannt worden sind. Das erste Stichdatum ergibt sich aus dem Vorgängerband, der die Professorenschaft von 1803 bis 1933 enthielt. Der Schnitt 1986 erklärt sich aus dem Jubiläumsjahr zur Feier der six hundred. Wiederkehr der Gründung der Universität Heidelberg. Es handelt sich um ein Corpus von knapp one thousand Personen. Quellengrundlage zum wissenschaftlichen Lebenslauf eines Professors sind vor allem Archivmaterialien (Personal,- Fakultäts- und Rektoratsakten), von den Professoren beantwortete Fragebögen sowie biographische Nachschlagewerke.

Die Anlage des Lexikons ist analog zu den Vorgängerbändengestaltet: Die Biographien des Lexikons geben Auskunft über das berufliche und deepest Leben der Professoren: Lebensdaten, Religionszugehörigkeit, Lehrfach, -fächer, Fakultätszugehörigkeit sowie Informationen über den Familienstand. Im Zentrum steht der akademische Lebenslauf, dessen Daten mit Angaben über das Studium oder eine Berufsausbildung des Betreffenden einsetzen. Von da an sind alle in und außerhalb Heidelbergs verbrachten Lebensabschnitte, auch die außeruniversitären Tätigkeiten, bis zum Tode verzeichnet. Zu jeder Biographie gehören Quellennachweis, Nennung einiger bedeutender Werke der Gelehrten, Literaturangaben und Porträtnachweis. Die Biographien werden nach dem bisherigen Muster alphabetisch geordnet zusammengestellt; Quellen- und Sekundärliteraturverzeichnis, Abkürzungsverzeichnis, ein chronologisches Verzeichnis der Professoren der einzelnen Fakultäten und eine Zeittafel über wichtige Daten zur Heidelberger Universitätsgeschichte 1933 bis 1986 sind beigegeben.

Download Organic Chemicals: An Environmental Perspective by Alasdair H. Neilson PDF

By Alasdair H. Neilson

Environmental difficulties became more and more advanced. The tactics for investigating those difficulties pass the conventional obstacles of natural and analytical chemistry, microbiology and biology. natural chemical substances: An Environmental viewpoint brings jointly the fundamental problems with chemical research, distribution, endurance, and ecotoxicology.
The writer illustrates every one aspect with particular examples and offers a mechanistic method of microbial reactions. broad go referencing among chapters offers solidarity and entire assurance of concerns tangential to every subject. the recent version has been generally revised, and features a new appendix, a brand new bankruptcy, plus extra revised details in the course of the e-book. in truth, it's a thoroughly new book.
A significant hassle in environmental technology is that a lot of the heritage is greatly scattered within the really good chemical, microbiological, and organic literature. The insurance of most of these components in one quantity, the coherence provided by means of the move references, and the huge references to the unique literature makes natural chemical compounds: An Environmental standpoint a different source.

Download Flammable: Environmental Suffering in an Argentine by Javier Auyero PDF

By Javier Auyero

Surrounded by way of one of many greatest petrochemical compounds in Argentina, a hugely polluted river that brings the poisonous waste of tanneries and different industries, a damaging and mostly unsupervised waste incinerator, and an unmanaged landfill, Flammable's soil, air, and water are infected with lead, chromium, benzene, and different chemical compounds. So are its approximately 5 thousand sickened and frail population. How do terrible humans make feel of and deal with poisonous toxins? Why do they fail to appreciate what's objectively a transparent and current probability? How are perceptions and misperceptions shared inside a group?

in keeping with archival learn and and a part years of collaborative ethnographic fieldwork in Flammable, this publication examines the lived reports of environmental discomfort. regardless of transparent proof on the contrary, citizens let themselves to doubt or perhaps deny the not easy evidence of commercial toxins. this occurs, the authors argue, via a "labor of bewilderment" enabled through kingdom officers who often bring up the difficulty of relocation and simply as usually droop it; by way of the firms who fund neighborhood well-being care yet assert that the realm is not worthy for human place of abode; by means of medical professionals who say the health problems aren't any diversified from anyplace else yet inform moms they need to depart the local if their households are to be cured; by way of reporters who randomly seem and concentrate on the main severe points of lifestyles there; and by means of attorneys who inspire citizens to carry out for a payment. those contradictory activities, recommendation, and data interact to form the burdened adventure of dwelling at risk and finally interprets right into a lengthy, useless, and unsure ready time, a time dictated via robust pursuits and shared through all marginalized groups.

With luminous and brilliant descriptions of daily life locally, Auyero and Swistun depict this on-going sluggish movement human and environmental catastrophe and dissect the manifold ways that it truly is skilled by way of Flammable residents.
