Abstract

In the course of the so-called ‘economic and financial crisis’ from 2008 onwards, there has been a fierce debate about the role and purpose of the European Union. It was led in politics and the media just as in academia. The economic usefulness of the Euro has been discussed, and the political implications of a fostered European unification. Most often, the state of Europeanization has been presented as being without alternatives: no Europe without Greece; no Euro without Greece; no way back to the nation state in its old form. As a result, the debate on Europe was largely narrowed down to the very questions of the immediate crisis, namely economics and fi nance. Only a few voices held that the crisis in fact was one of politics, not of economics. And only late did politicians mention again that Europe is more than the EU. Alternative views of Europe, however, were scarce and often presented full of consequences. It thus came without much surprise that the lacking imaginative power of politicians as well as intellectuals was criticized. The idea for this volume sprang from that situation. The editors invited scholars from various disciplines to present them with ways of imagining Europe that go beyond the rather limited view of EU institutions. How was, how is Europe imagined? Which memories are evoked, which visions explicated? Which counter-narratives to prominent discourses are there?

Abstract

Crisi, emergenze, catastrofi. I fatti dell’11 settembre 2001 hanno inaugurato un millennio in cui sembrano intensificarsi guerre e conflitti, pandemie, emergenze ecologiche, e il nuovo disordine mondiale genera impoverimento e disuguaglianze, esaspera paure personali e collettive. Con un approccio interdisciplinare che non trascura cenni storici, antropologici e sociologici, il libro propone l’analisi di un ampio ventaglio di opere realizzate da artisti di vari paesi del mondo nell’ultimo quindicennio su emergenze e crisi planetarie. Una produzione “deterritorializzata”, in cui la pratica e l’etica del cinema del reale sono recuperate in modo innovativo, tra le estetiche incerte degli smartphone e l’eredità del cinema sperimentale e della videoarte in dialogo col digitale.

Abstract

A professor of poetry uses a deck of playing cards to measure the time until her lover returns from Afghanistan. Congolese soldiers find their loneliness reflected in the lyrics of rumba songs. Survivors of the siege of Sarajevo discuss which book they would have never burned for fuel. A Romanian political prisoner writes her memoir in her head, a book no one will ever read. These are the arts of survival in times of crisis. Rumba Under Fire proposes we think differently about what it means for the arts and liberal arts to be “in crisis.” In prose and poetry, the contributors to Rumba Under Fire explore what it means to do art in hard times. How do people teach, create, study, and rehearse in situations of political crisis? Can art and intellectual work really function as resistance to power? What relationship do scholars, journalists, or even memoirists have to the crises they describe and explain? How do works created in crisis, especially at the extremes of human endurance, fit into our theories of knowledge and creativity?

Abstract

This book focuses on the challenges facing governments and communities in preparing for and responding to major crises — especially the hard to predict yet unavoidable natural disasters ranging from earthquakes and tsunamis to floods and bushfires, as well as pandemics and global economic crises. Future-proofing the state and our societies involves decision-makers developing capacities to learn from recent ‘disaster’ experiences in order to be better placed to anticipate and prepare for foreseeable challenges. To undertake such futureproofing means taking long-term (and often recurring) problems seriously, managing risks appropriately, investing in preparedness, prevention and mitigation, reducing future vulnerability, building resilience in communities and institutions, and cultivating astute leadership. In the past we have often heard calls for ‘better future-proofing’ in the aftermath of disasters, but then neglected the imperatives of the message. Future-Proofing the State is organised around four key themes: how can we better predict and manage the future; how can we transform the short-term thinking shaped by our political cycles into more effective long-term planning; how can we build learning into our preparations for future policies and management; and how can we successfully build trust and community resilience to meet future challenges more adequately?

Abstract

"Economic and sociological research has long shown that the widespread presence of criminal organizations in the territory is a factor that contrasts economic and social development. This is just one aspect of the complex relationship that exists between local economic dynamics and the illegal behavior of social actors. The relationship between social norms and legal norms, the quality and quantity of social capital, the bonds of trust between the actors and the legitimization of the state, the local power systems, the certainty of the sanctions, are other aspects that certainly contribute to create the conditions that favor illegal responses to the crisis. The book seeks to highlight how legality and illegality present facets and interdependencies that can't simply be traced back to the moral categories of good and evil, but need to be analyzed in a multifactorial perspective."

Abstract

The importance of oil for modern economic and political regimes increased during the economic boom of the post-war decades. Yet in 1973-1974, rising oil prices and reduced production raised the specter of an uncertain future. Rüdiger Graf examines the national and international strategies formulated to deal with this challenge to political sovereignty, exploring the first oil crisis in the context of the transformational processes of the 1970s.

Abstract

L’industrie musicale française est en crise depuis le milieu des années 2000. Les ventes ont chuté alors même que le processus de numérisation des contenus se développait. Comment apprécier l’incidence sur la diversité culturelle de la production et de la consommation d’une filière en crise ? Fondée sur l’approche d’Andrew Stirling, la mesure de la diversité culturelle est analysée selon trois dimensions : la variété produite et consommée, l’équilibre des ventes entre les différents titres et la disparité des albums et des artistes écoutés. L’analyse révèle la baisse du poids des majors au profit des petits et gros producteurs indépendants, elle apporte des éléments de réponse sur l’effet de levier des ventes en ligne (hypothèse de la longue traîne) et sur l’appréciation de la diversité dans la part des ventes réalisées en grandes surfaces spécialisées.
