The Bridegroom Was a Dog is perhaps the Japanese-German writer Yoko Tawada's most famous story. Its initial publication in 1998 garnered admiration from The New Yorker, who praised it as, "fast-moving, mysteriously compelling tale that has the dream quality of Kafka." The Bridegroom Was a Dog begins with a schoolteacher telling a fable to her students. In the fable, a princess promises her hand in marriage to a dog that has licked her bottom clean. The story takes an even stranger twist when that very dog appears to the schoolteacher in real life as a dog-like man. They develop a very sexual, romantic courtship with many allegorical overtones - much to the chagrin of her friends.
This richly illustrated book examines the Turkish bath and its many rituals from the twin perspectives of its place in Ottoman society and its role in the Western imagination. The history of the Turkish bath is presented, from the time of the first Sultan Osman I (1299-1321) through to Mehmet VI, the last of the Ottoman rulers who was deposed and exiled in 1922. The bath was the place where the Ottoman citizen could celebrate, at once, the sensual, spiritual, symbolic and sovial state of being. Through Aykut's comprehensive and entertaining study of the history of the Turkish bath, the reader is introduced to some of the Ottoman Empire's most glamourous art and most sumptuous artefacts.
This second edition of Classroom Discourse Analysis continues to make techniques widely used in the field of discourse analysis accessible to a broad audience and illustrates their practical application in the study of classroom talk, ideal for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in discourse analysis, applied linguistics, and anthropology and education. Grounded in a unique tripartite "dimensional approach," individual chapters investigate interactional resources that model forms of discourse analysis teachers may practice in their own classrooms while other chapters provide students with a thorough understanding of how to actually collect and analyse data. The presence of a number of pedagogical features, including activities and exercises and a comprehensive glossary help to enhance students' understanding of these key tools in classroom discourse analysis research. Features new to this edition reflect current developments in the field, including: * increased coverage of peer interaction in the classroom * greater connecting analysis to curricular and policy mandates and standards-based reform movements * sample excerpts from actual student classroom discourse analysis assignments * a new chapter on the repertoire approach, an increasingly popular method of analysis of particular relevance to today's multilingual classrooms
