Keren MOCK - Hébreu du sacré au maternel

Hébreu Quels matériaux sont nécessaires à la création d’une nouvelle langue maternelle et quel processus aboutit à son adoption par ses locuteurs ? L’hébreu, langue aujourd’hui quotidienne dont le fondement est spirituel, culturel et religieux, nous éclaire sur la genèse d’une nouvelle langue maternelle. Mais pour comprendre cette résurgence, il fallait rassembler et interpréter ses archives.
Procédant à une fouille archéologique qui nous conduit du présent aux strates les plus anciennes, l’auteure dialogue avec deux des plus grands écrivains israéliens, Aharon Appelfeld et Sami Michael, pénètre dans « la fabrique » lexicographique d’Eliezer Ben-Yehuda, et revient sur les fondements philosophiques de l’hébreu profane par une lecture inédite de l’Abrégé de grammaire hébraïque de Baruch Spinoza.

« Rarement un ouvrage aura brassé avec autant de maîtrise et d’originalité des domaines aussi vastes et, par une approche interdisciplinaire, répondu à des enjeux politiques et éthiques aussi actuels qu’essentiels. »
Julia Kristeva
« De la psychanalyse à la sémiotique, de l’intertextualité à l’histoire des idées, de la génétique des textes à la philosophie, c’est à une effective transdisciplinarité joyeuse et généreuse que ce livre nous convie comme à un véritable festin intellectuel. »
Pierre-Marc de Biasi

If You Post It, They Still Might Not Come

By David Baker. Some of the loneliest inhabitants on the Internet tend to be higher education videos. (Somebody had to say it.) We all have our rock stars…that time that Michelle Obama or Stephen Colbert gave the commencement speech, or maybe it was a quirky flash mob video or Haarlem Shuffle setup that you launched at just the right time.

Media Pitching: It’s Personal

By Sean Casey. “No way they’re going to pass on this,” I say to myself, my fingers gliding over the keyboard.
The pitch is writing itself it’s so good. My confidence getting this story placed swells as I go through the checklist. More...

Following the Leads in Higher Ed

By Tim Jones. With all the online oversharing these days, turning over your name and email seems pretty small. We’ll happily trade our contact information for a helpful whitepaper, good coupon or a needed answer about a product, service or organization. More...

Sales vs. Marketing in Higher Ed

By Deborah Maue. In a typical business organization, the relationship between the “sales” function and the “marketing” function is stormy, and often includes the following tensions:
What’s more important — long-term brand-building or short-term sales growth?
Who controls the message?
Who controls the budget?
In higher ed, this “sales vs. marketing” tension often exists between the Marketing and Enrollment Management offices. More...

What’s a Brand Worth? Evidence From the Gulf

By Alex Usher. There are branch campuses and then there are branch campuses.  Mostly, branch campuses are set up in temporary (often rented) premises, and try to scratch a living charging locals what the market will bear and trying to keep costs down through whatever mix of contract academic staff and distance learning from the “home campus” will work while keeping students coming through the door.

Internationalization vs Cultural Appropriation

By Liz Reisberg. The continuing stream of articles covering student indignation on campus over a supposed lack of respect and tolerance for other cultures just makes me sigh. Although I pride myself on a certain degree of political, cultural, racial sensitivity (Granted, it’s still a work in progress) I do worry that this kind of “sensitivity” is out of control.

A Typology of “Free Tuition”

By Alex Usher. You would be forgiven, over the past 24 months or so, for growing ever more confused about when tuition is “free” and when it is not.  Can it be called “free tuition” if a student has to pay living expenses?  Is it only free tuition if only some students receive “free education”?   What about if we look at “net price” (i.e. tuition minus grants)?  It’s actually kind of tricky.

Institutionalized Separation of Research and Teaching in Ukraine

By Ararat L. Osipian. In Ukraine, research and education are institutionally separated. This separation, inherited from the Soviet era, results in universities scoffing at research and research institutes unmotivated to cooperate with universities. Read more...

Austrian Universities and the Refugee Crisis

By Madelaine Leitsberger. Austria is one of the transit countries for refugees on their way to Germany. It faces great infrastructure and organisational difficulties to deal with the masses of people crossing the border but also with those who decide to stay. Approximately 90.000 applications for asylum have been submitted in 2015 in contrast to 28.064 applications in 2014. Read more...
