    "Hundert Jahre nach Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkrieges wird an dieses für die Geschichte des »kurzen 20. Jahrhunderts« (Eric Hobsbawm) fundamentale Ereignis vielerorts und aus unterschiedlichster Perspektive in Ausstellungen und Publikationen erinnert. Sich seinerseits damit auseinanderzusetzen, war für das Centre national de littérature nicht nur eine Notwendigkeit im Hinblick auf das weltweit stattfindende Gedenken, sondern ebenso eine aus seinem wissenschaftlichen und soziokulturellen Selbstverständnis abgeleitete Erfordernis."

    "Filmmaker Andrew Rossi asks the critical question about the value of higher education, revealing how colleges have come to embrace a business model that often promotes expansion over quality learning. With student-loan debt now over the one trillion dollar mark, the film explores the current education crisis from the halls of Harvard, to community colleges, to online learning. The most compelling story is the ongoing crisis at Cooper Union, the Manhattan college founded upon the radical notion that education should be free. In 2012, financial woes led the school to consider charging tuition for the first time in its 150-year history."

    "Maggio 1959. Nella sala d'aspetto della stazione di Roma viene fermato dalla polizia per un controllo un uomo dall'aria distinta ma trasandato. Si tratta del matematico napoletano Renato Caccioppoli, un uomo geniale ed eccentrico, molto conosciuto in tutta Napoli. Il mattino successivo un commissario di polizia contatta suo fratello Luigi, che lo accoglie in casa sua e di sua moglie. Ma Renato non vuole vicino nessuno; l'unico che sopporta è Pietro, un giovane studente universitario. Nipote di Bakunin per parte di madre, e divenuto estraneo ai suoi stessi compagni di partito del PCI e ai suoi collaboratori all'Ateneo, vive la sua vita con disincantato distacco. Frutto dell'intreccio culturale e umano nato intorno all'esperienza dei Teatri Uniti di Napoli, la pellicola offre una rappresentazione di una Napoli crepuscolare, ripercorrendo la vicenda biografica del matematico napoletano."

    "This documentary succeeds in surprising its audience with images and situations that have very little to do with the futuristic fantasy of "space tourism". The filmmaker sets up encounters with the least likely people imaginable, with places even stranger and more unknown than outer space itself. With extra-ordinary access and truly first-time images the film investigates the emotional oscillations of an expensive enterprise and questions the meaning and boundaries of the human spirit and our hunger for adventure and discovery."

    "The page-turning joys of E.L. Doctorow's bestselling novel Ragtime, which dizzily and entertainingly paints a kaleidoscopic panorama of the racial tensions, infidelity and violence of an early 1900s America in the midst of intense social change, have been realized almost completely in Milos Forman's superbly crafted screen adaptation. Rather than trying to cram in the entire jumble of people, places, and things from the book, Forman elects instead to concentrate on the story of Coalhouse Walker Jr., a young black pianist who becomes embroiled in the lives of an upper-class white family. The result is a beautifully mounted, graceful film that develops its characters with great clarity. Perhaps only an immigrant, and a recent one such as Milos Forman, could have made this film, which looks squarely at the social problems gnawing at America but which nevertheless finds cause for hope. A truly powerhouse cast, headed by the legendary James Cagney in his final big-screen role, includes: Pat O'Brien, Elizabeth McGovern, Mary Steenburgen, Norman Mailer, Samuel L. Jackson etc."

    „Kaum ein Architekt hat in den letzten Jahren außerhalb der Architekturszene für so viel Aufsehen gesorgt wie Rem Koolhaas. Dem Holländer ging es nie um das einzelne „masterpiece“, sondern stets darum, zu provozieren und Spannung zu erzeugen. Die Seattle Library, die Casa da Música in Porto oder die Niederländische Botschaft in Berlin sind eindrucksvolle Beispiele einer Architektur, die mehr sein will als bloße Architektur.Die Bedeutung und das internationale Renommee des (Der Spiegel) bezeugen eine Professur an der Harvard-Universität und die Verleihung des Pritzker-Preises im Jahr 2000. Die Jury würdigte Koolhaas als „Visionär und Ausführer, Philosoph und Pragmatiker, Theoretiker und Prophet.“ Rem Kohlhaas presidiert die 14. Architektur Biennale in Venedig.

    „Die deutsche Bildungspolitik ist auf dem Holzweg, ist sich Julian Nida-Rümelin sicher. Die berufliche Bildung, um die man Deutschland beneidet, würde vernachlässigt, klassische Ausbildungsberufe sollen immer häufiger an der Universität gelehrt werden. Nida-Rümelin aber plädiert für ein Bildungssystem, das die Vielfalt von Begabungen wertschätzt. In seinem neuen Essay erklärt er, warum der Wirtschaftsstandort Deutschland eine Rückbesinnung auf die duale Berufsausbildung braucht.“

    "Geographies of Globalization 2nd edition offers an animated and fully-updated exposition of the geographical impacts of globalization and the contribution of human geography to studies and debates in this area. Energetic and engaging, this book: illustrates how the core principles of human geography – such as space and scale – lead to a better understanding of the phenomenon, debates the historical evolution of globalized society, analyses the interconnected economic, political and cultural geographies of globalization, examines the impact of global transformations ‘on the ground’ using examples from six continents, discusses the three global crises currently facing the world – inequality, the environment and unstable capitalism most recently manifested in the Great Recession, articulates a human geographical framework for progressive globalization and approaching solutions to the problems we face. Boxed sections highlight key concepts and innovative work by geographers as well as topical and lively debates concerning current global trends. The book is also generously illustrated with a wide range of figures, photographs, and maps."

    "The Environmental Chemistry of Aluminum provides a comprehensive, fundamental account of the aqueous chemistry of aluminum within an environmental context. An excellent reference for environmental chemists and scientific administrators of environmental programs, this book contains material reflecting the many recent changes in this rapidly developing discipline. The first three chapters discuss the most fundamental aspects of aluminum chemistry: its quantitation in soils and natural waters, including speciation measurements, and its stable chemical forms, both as a dissolved solute and in a solid phase. These chapters emphasize both critical assessments of and definitive recommendations for laboratory methodologies and measured thermodynamic properties relating to aluminum chemistry. The next four chapters in The Environmental Chemistry of Aluminum build on this foundation to provide details of the polymeric chemistry of aluminum: its polynuclear and colloidal hydrolytic species in aqueous solution, its complexes with natural organic ligands, including humic substances, and its role as an adsorptive and adsorbent in surface reactions. These chapters are grounded in experimental results rather than conceptual modeling. The final three chapters describe the chemistry of aluminum in soils, waters, and watersheds. These chapters illustrate the problems of spatial and temporal variability, metastability, and scale that continue to make aluminum geochemistry one of the great challenges in modern environmental science."

    « A cultural historian, Bob Batchelor explores the birth, life, and enduring influence of The Great Gatsby-from the book's publication in 1925 through today's headlines filled with celebrity intrigue, corporate greed, and a roller-coaster economy. He explains why and how the novel has become part of the fiber of the American ethos and an important tool in helping readers to better comprehend their lives and the broader world around them. He explores how the central themes and ideas emerging from the book-from the fulfillment of the American Dream to the role of wealth in society-resonate with contemporary readers who struggle with similar uncertainties today. »

    „Fassbinder hatte Hanna Schygulla 1963 auf der Schauspielschule kennengelernt und schon früh die Vision gehabt, sie würde „ein wesentlicher Eckpfeiler …, vielleicht gar so etwas wie ein Motor“ seines damals noch imaginären Filmwerks werden. Vor dem Hintergrund von Kriegsende, Wiederaufbau, Studentenbewegung – jener Zeit, als antiautoritär und kreativ noch gleichbedeutend waren – und Wiedervereinigung erzählt Hanna Schygulla von ihrer Flucht, ihrer Jugend in München, ihren Jahren mit Fassbinder, vom Ende der Zusammenarbeit nach Lili Marleen und Fassbinders frühem Tod ein Jahr danach, von ihrer Übersiedlung nach Paris der Liebe wegen und der Fortsetzung ihrer Karriere mit anderen großen Regisseuren wie Jean-Luc Godard, Andrzej Wajda, Marco Ferreri, Ettore Scola, Fatih Akin oder Alexander Sokurov.“
