Abstract

"This is a book about the power game currently being played out between two symbiotic cultural institutions: the university and the novel. As the number of hyper-knowledgeable literary fans grows, students and researchers in English departments waiver between dismissing and harnessing voices outside the academy. Meanwhile, the role that the university plays in contemporary literary fiction is becoming increasingly complex and metafictional, moving far beyond the ‘campus novel’ of the mid-twentieth century. Martin Paul Eve’s engaging and far-reaching study explores the novel's contribution to the ongoing displacement of cultural authority away from university English. Spanning the works of Jennifer Egan, Ishmael Reed, Tom McCarthy, Sarah Waters, Percival Everett, Roberto Bolaño and many others, Literature Against Criticism forces us to re-think our previous notions about the relationship between those who write literary fiction and those who critique it.

Abstract

A Gender Budget is a strategic tool that provides an assessment of the political-economic and financial decisions of public administration from a gender-sensitive perspective. Its main goal is to support a more efficient, transparent, and equitable, management of resources.The first Gender Budget of the Università degli Studi di Napoli “Federico II” (UNINA) was realized within the framework of the European-Union funded GENOVATE research project: Transforming Organizational Culture for Gender Equality in Research and Innovation.It consists in a thorough context analysis of the University enrolment and career policy outcomes, encompassing students, academic, technical and administrative staff, which results in a detailed map of the still relevant gender gap dimension in the institution.Raw data and their focused analysis show how cultural and structural barriers contribute to women dropping out of university at the very beginning of scientific careers (i.e. the so-called ‘leaky pipeline’ phenomenon). Due to horizontal and vertical segregation mechanisms, some disciplinary fields and academic positions still remain dominated by one gender.It is the authors’ hope that Gender Budgeting may become a well-established practice at UNINA, and may support transformative actions and inspire gender-mainstreaming institutional policies.GENOVATE is a project funded by the European Commission within the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), under the Science in Society grant programme (SiS 2012 2.1.1-1).This volume was co-funded by the European Union.

Abstract

El libro ofrece una colección de 4.152 documentos de la época de Enrique IV de Castilla (1454-1474) editados de forma resumida, entresacados de diversos archivos españoles. La mayor parte procede de las colecciones bibliográficas y documentales de la Real Academia de la Historia, como las de Luis de Salazar y Castro, Salvá, Lorich, Catedrales de España y colección Diplomática Española, sin olvidar algunos manuscritos singulares de la misma biblioteca. Igualmente se han vaciado algunos fondos de la Biblioteca Nacional de Madrid y Archivo General de Simancas, así como del Archivo Municipal de Sevilla. El marco cronológico se ha ampliado a los últimos años del reinado de Juan II y primeros de los Reyes Católicos debido a la abundancia de noticias relacionadas con este rey. El criterio temático es flexible, ya que no se ha limitado la búsqueda a la documentación expedida por la cancillería regia. Esta obra pretende ofrecer una herramienta de trabajo a los especialistas en el siglo XV castellano.
