Summary

The cartoon is a graphics art, which tells a funny and/or satiric story in form of an affirmative picture, mostly with a point. Normally no words are used for the picture joke – sometimes just keywords.

The cartoon is a drawing, that often in a humoristic way comments or criticises conditions of political or social character.

The cartoon should easily perceive, which situation, person or problematic is intended to be told by the cartoonist. Also human attributes and characters can be put down in an overdoing manner.

Scouting – with all its all-round attitude towards clean, truthworthy and moral values offers quite a lot of opportunities for critics, comments and interpretations –  in particular, if the way of the cartoon is put in a fair, never offending, discriminating or even insulting form.

At the beginning of the play Chris and Anna are reunited after fifteen years apart.  Anna comes to live on her father's coal barge, but hides the secret of her past from him.  When she meets Mat after an accident in the fog, they almost immediately fall in love - but Anna finds that forging a new future will not be easy.

    Creolizing the Metropole -...

    A study of how Caribbean immigrants to France and the UK from 1948–1998 and their descendants portray their metropolitan identities in literature and film. 
     
    Creolizing the Metropole is a comparative study of postwar West Indian migration to the former colonial capitals of Paris and London. It studies the effects of this population shift on national and cultural identity and traces the postcolonial Caribbean experience through analyses of the concepts of identity and diaspora. Through close readings of selected literary works and film, H. Adlai Murdoch explores the ways in which these immigrants and their descendants represented their metropolitan identities. Though British immigrants were colonial subjects and, later, residents of British Commonwealth nations, and the French arrivals from the overseas departments were citizens of France by law, both groups became subject to otherness and exclusion stemming from their ethnicities. Murdoch examines this phenomenon and the questions it raises about borders and boundaries, nationality and belonging. 
     
    “An outstanding contribution to scholarship. Theoretically grounded and meticulously researched, it examines the complexities inherent in constructing new diaspora identities that are at once ethnic, national, and fluid.” —Renée Larrier, Rutgers University 
     
    “In these expansive, fresh, adroit interpretations of Maryse Condé, Gisèle Pineau, Zadie Smith-White, and Andrea Levy, the author exposes the stark reality that race, and the prejudices attached to it, is a barrier to unequivocal assimilation. This study affirms that a diasporic duality persists as creolization slowly alters the metropole. Overall, an interesting read.” —Choice 
     
    “[This] book provides an extremely valuable contribution to the fields of postcolonial studies and European literary and film studies in at least three ways: it theoretically refines the concept of creolization, it contributes to much-needed redefinitions of France and the United Kingdom as multicultural, and it foregrounds the aesthetic qualities of the works under study.” —Research in African Literatures

    A “vastly entertaining” history of urban centers—from the ancient world to today (Time).   From the earliest example in the Ancient Near East to today’s teeming centers of compressed existence, such as Mumbai and Tokyo, cities are home to half the planet’s population and consume nearly three-quarters of its natural resources. They can be seen as natural cultural artifacts—evidence of our civic spirit and collective ingenuity.   This book gives us the ecological and functional context of how cities evolved throughout human history—the connection between pottery making and childbirth in ancient Anatolia, plumbing and politics in ancient Rome, and revolution and street planning in nineteenth-century Paris. This illuminating study helps us to understand how urban centers thrive, decline, and rise again—and prepares us for the role cities will play in the future.   “A superb historical account of the places in which most of us either live or will live.” —Conde Nast Traveller
