Mach Dich Auf Und Werde Licht Celies Nu Topi Gaiss from the Author: Christiane Schiller. Ernst Gluck kann in vielerlei Hinsicht als eine der eindrucksvollsten Personlichkeiten des ausgehenden 17. Jahrhunderts im Baltischen Raum gelten. Geboren 1654 in Wettin bei Halle (Saale) hat er als Pfarrer in Livland die Bibel erstmals ins Lettische ubersetzt. Er ist somit fur die Letten das, was Luther fur die Deutschen war. In Russland, wohin er als Kriegsgefangener wahrend des Nordischen Krieges geraten war, erwarb er sich grosse Verdienste als Grunder des ersten russischen Gymnasiums, und nicht zuletzt war er Ziehvater von Martha Skowronska, die spater als Zarin Katharina I. den russischen Thron bestieg. In diesem Tagungsband zeichnen Historiker, Theologen, Sprach- und Literaturwissenschaftler aus der Bundesrepublik, dem Baltikum und Russland in ihren Beitragen wichtige Lebensstationen Ernst Glucks nach, und versuchen so ein umfassendes Bild von dessen Leben und Werk zu vermitteln.

German Through English Eyes from the Author: Nicola McLelland. McLelland's pioneering study charts the history of foreign language learning and teaching in the UK over five centuries (1500-2000), taking German as her case study. From the first grammar of German for English speakers, published in 1680, McLelland traces the growth in interest in German for travel and trade, and its rapid increase in prestige in the eighteenth century as a language of literary merit, before German became established in schools and universities from the second quarter of the nineteenth century onwards. Taking hundreds of textbooks as her primary sources, as well as the pronouncements of teachers, examiners and policy-makers, McLelland considers the changing reasons for teaching and learning German, and the consequent changes in teaching methods (including the influence of the Reform Movement around 1900, innovations such as language laboratories, and, more recently, the communicative approach). She analyses changes in how the German language was presented, including advances in how the sound system and word order were described. Finally, and crucially, she considers how German culture and history have been represented to English-speaking learners, particularly over the past hundred years, a century of troubled Anglo-German cultural relations. A chronological bibliography of several hundred textbooks for the period 1600-2000 will serve as a stimulus for further research.

The German Language In British Higher Education from the Author: Sylvia Jaworska. The discipline of German Studies in English-speaking countries is in crisis and the situation in British Higher Education can be seen as a paradigmatic example. Symptoms of the crisis are a dramatic decrease in the number of students, financial difficulties and the resulting closures of German Departments. Furthermore, the language skills which finally emerge from universities are not always satisfactory. The present book sheds light on key aspects of the institutionalised teaching and learning of German language in the UK. The first part - the macro-context - surveys the socio-political developments that have recently affected the sector of modern languages and specifically the discipline of German Studies. The second part - the micro-context -, zooms in to the teaching and learning as experienced from both students' and teachers' perspective. Ultimately, by linking the macro-analysis with the micro findings, the present book proposes a number of strategies which could contribute to the optimisation and enhancement of teaching and learning German in British Higher Education.

Forgotten Land from the Author: Max Egremont. East Prussia is no longer on any map, though it was once a thriving land, famously military, deeply forested, artistically fertile, and the birthplace of Immanuel Kant. As the scene of Stalin’s ‘terrible revenge’ it came to embody the turbulence of the twentieth century, was carved up between Poland and the USSR after World War II – and passed abruptly into history. Embarking on a remarkable journey through landscape and memory, Max Egremont has woven the stories of ghosts and survivors into an evocative and deeply moving meditation on identity and the passing of time. ‘East Prussia’s successful evocation demands both the mind of a poet who can delineate the scale of human loss, and the imagination of an historian who knows how to count the cost. Forgotten Land, a work of consummate artistry, blends both capacities to rare effect’ Spectator ‘Changing frontiers, blurred racial identities, shifting allegiances and the mass movement of people – this a story for our time’ New Statesman ‘Illuminating. A literary map to a beguiling hidden enclave of Europe’ Metro ‘Egremont’s compelling tale exploits his boundless intellectual curiosity, mastery of German and eye for whimsy as well as tragedy. The book’s canvas is remarkable. Fascinating reading’ Max Hastings, Sunday Times

A History Of The Baltic States from the Author: Andres Kasekamp. Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania have been the battleground for neighbouring powers and the site of intense rivalry, but also interaction, between East and West. A History of the Baltic States masterfully traces the development of these three Baltic countries, from the northern crusades against Europe's last pagans, and Lithuania's rise to become one of medieval Europe's largest states, to their incorporation into the Russian Empire and the creation of their modern national identities. Drawing upon the most recent scholarship, Andres Kasekamp pays particular attention to the tumultuous twentieth century, during which the Baltic States achieved independence, but also endured occupation by both the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany. Finally, he explores how the Baltic States recovered their statehood and transformed themselves into members of the European Union. Clearly and accessibly written, this is one of the first English-language books to provide a comparative survey of Baltic history.
