Abstract

Mehr als 3,2 Millionen Menschen lernen und arbeiten in Deutschland an Hochschulen. Die Hochschule als Organisation und Institution repräsentiert damit ein bedeutsames Setting für gesundheitsförderliche Angebote und Maßnahmen, die sich in unterschiedlichen Programmen und Projekten bereits in der Praxis etabliert haben. Sport- und Bewegungsangebote besitzen im Kontext der Gesundheitsförderung an Hochschulen dabei eine große Bedeutung. Der dritte Band der Reihe „Hochschulsport: Bildung und Wissenschaft“ widmet sich diesem Thema aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven. Neben theoretischen Beiträgen zur Bewegungsorientierten Gesundheitsförderung an Hochschulen präsentiert der Band erstmals auch zahlreiche empirisch ausgerichtete Beiträge, die über die Effekte, Wirkungsweisen und Anwendungsmöglichkeiten des Sports und der Bewegung im Hochschulsetting berichten. Darüber hinaus wird der Praxis der bewegungsorientierten Gesundheitsförderung besondere Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt, indem Beispiele aus unterschiedlichen Hochschulen vorgestellt und diskutiert werden.

Abstract

This third volume of Lage Landen Studies offers a glimpse of recent international and internationalizing trends in Dutch Studies. It presents a comparative view of the virtually synchronic dynamics of the translation, promotion and reception of contemporary Dutch author Arnon Grunberg in five Romance languages between 1996 and 2009. This interdisciplinary approach, which focuses on the crossroads of language, literature and culture, as well as on aspects of the sociologies of literature and translation, is combined with views from translation studies, comparative literature, and bibliology in order to build bridges between theory and practice.&#xD;The first part is devoted to the seldom-heard perspective of the translator and dissects the circumstances in which works by Arnon Grunberg – and by his heteronym Marek van der Jagt – are translated, promoted and received in five Romance languages. The function and ‘visual translation’ of book covers are also analyzed. Notwithstanding the relative homogeneity of the languages, their cultural background and geographical location, remarkable differences come to light. The first part rounds off by looking at the promotional possibilities of writer’s tours and translation workshops in the target countries.

Abstract

This in-depth survey of salutogenesis shows the breadth and strengths of this innovative perspective on health promotion, health care, and wellness. Background and historical chapters trace the development of the salutogenic model of health, and flesh out the central concepts, most notably generalized resistance resources and the sense of coherence, that differentiate it from pathogenesis. From there, experts describe a range of real-world applications within and outside health contexts, from positive psychology to geriatrics, from small towns to corrections facilities, and from school and workplace to professional training. Perspectives from scholars publishing in languages other than English show the global relevance of the field.Among the topics in the Handbook:· Emerging ideas relevant to the salutogenic model of health· Specific resistance resources in the salutogenic model of health· The sense of coherence and its measurement· The application of salutogenesis in communities and neighborhoods· The application of salutogenesis to health development in youth with chronic conditions· The application of salutogenesis in mental health care settingsThe Handbook of Salutogenesis summarizes an increasingly salient field for graduate and professional students of public health, nursing, psychology, and medicine, and for their instructors. It will also appeal to health-related academicians and professionals who wish to have a thorough grounding in the topic.

Abstract

For decades the health of children and adolescents has been a topic of interest in all parts of Europe. And there is quite a consensus that schools are the most appropriate setting to promote health. Childhood and adolescence constitute key stages for learning and adopting a health-related and active lifestyle which includes physical activity and sports. The book describes a new approach to enhance students’ health awareness through experimental learning settings in P.E. class, cross-subject teaching, and project work.Teaching health topics requires a pedagogical and didactical framework based on the concept of health literacy and interdisciplinary research discussed by the authors. Teaching examples to improve students’ health knowledge, health competencies and skills as well as health behaviour and habits at school implicates a new teaching structure presented in the book.

Abstract

This volume brings together expert contributors to explore the intersection of two major contemporary themes: globalization, and the contribution that both domestic party politics and international party support make to democratization. Globalising Democracy clearly shows what globalization means for domestic and international efforts to build effective political parties and competitive party systems in new and emerging democracies. Contrasting perspectives are presented through fresh case studies of European post-communist countries, Africa and Turkey. The reader is clearly shown how international party assistance is a manifestation and vehicle of globalization, and explores how it may be assessed in terms of: global economic integration the growth of global communications the development and implications for party politics of multi-level governance. This is the first book to analyze the impact of globalization on democracy and will be of great interest to all students of international relations, governance and politics.

Abstract

"The European Union’s (EU) impact on the political governance of&#xD;the European neighbourhood is varied and sometimes opposite to&#xD;the declared objectives of its democracy support policies. The&#xD;democracy promotion literature has to a large extent neglected&#xD;the unintended consequences of EU democracy support in Eastern&#xD;Europe and the Middle East and North Africa. The EU has left&#xD;multiple imprints on the political trajectories of the countries in&#xD;the neighbourhood and yet the dominant explanation, highlighting&#xD;the EU’s security and economic interests in the two regions,&#xD;cannot fully account for the unintended consequences of its policies.&#xD;The literature on the ‘pathologies’ of international organisations&#xD;offers an explanation, emphasizing the failures of the EU&#xD;bureaucracy to anticipate, prevent or reverse the undesired effects&#xD;of its democracy support in the neighbourhood."&#xD;

Abstract

Au cours des 30 dernières années, les activités de médiation culturelle ont connu un essor continu dans l’ensemble des domaines artistiques et culturels, au sein des institutions et sur les territoires, notamment sous l’impulsion des politiques publiques de la culture, de la ville et de l’emploi. Pour autant, les activités de médiation ne constituent pas aujourd’hui un ensemble homogène ; le métier et les compétences, divers selon les établissements et les secteurs, restent peu reconnus. Au moyen d’une méthode inédite qui se décline sous la forme de 6 configurations professionnelles, l’étude dresse un état des lieux actualisé des situations professionnelles rencontrées (contenus d’activité, statuts d’emploi, conditions d’accès et identités professionnelles) et identifie l’enjeu majeur que constitue la gestion des ressources humaines pour la professionnalisation des activités de médiation.

Abstract

This open access book gives an overview of the sessions, panel discussions, and outcomes of the Advancing the Science of Cancer in Latinos conference, held in February 2018 in San Antonio, Texas, USA, and hosted by the Mays Cancer Center and the Institute for Health Promotion Research at UT Health San Antonio. Latinos – the largest, youngest, and fastest-growing minority group in the United States – are expected to face a 142% rise in cancer cases in coming years. Although there has been substantial advancement in cancer prevention, screening, diagnosis, and treatment over the past few decades, addressing Latino cancer health disparities has not nearly kept pace with progress. The diverse and dynamic group of speakers and panelists brought together at the Advancing the Science of Cancer in Latinos conference provided in-depth insights as well as progress and actionable goals for Latino-focused basic science research, clinical best practices, community interventions, and what can be done by way of prevention, screening, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer in Latinos. These insights have been translated into the chapters included in this compendium; the chapters summarize the presentations and include current knowledge in the specific topic areas, identified gaps, and top priority areas for future cancer research in Latinos. Topics included among the chapters: Colorectal cancer disparities in Latinos: Genes vs. Environment Breast cancer risk and mortality in women of Latin American origin Differential cancer risk in Latinos: The role of diet Overcoming barriers for Latinos on cancer clinical trials Es tiempo: Engaging Latinas in cervical cancer research Emerging policies in U.S. health care Advancing the Science of Cancer in Latinos proves to be an indispensable resource offering key insights into actionable targets for basic science research, suggestions for clinical best practices and community interventions, and novel strategies and advocacy opportunities to reduce health disparities in Latino communities. It will find an engaged audience among researchers, academics, physicians and other healthcare professionals, patient advocates, students, and others with an interest in the broad field of Latino cancer.

Abstract

Antimicrobial therapy is a key factor in our success against pathogens poised to ravage at risk or infected individuals. However, we are currently at a watershed point as we face a growing crisis of antibiotic resistance among diverse pathogens. One area of intense interest is the impact of the application of antibiotics for uses other than the treatment of patients and the association with such utilization with emerging drug resistance. This Research Topic “Low- dose antibiotics: current status and outlook for the future” in Frontiers in Microbiology: Antimicrobials, Resistance and Chemotherapy details various aspects of the wide ranging effects of antimicrobial therapy from areas such as the regulation of host responses to modulation of bacterial virulence factors to acquisition of antibiotic resistance genes.
