Abstract

This article discusses two figures who visited Constantinople/Istanbul in roughly the same period, English writer Virginia Woolf (1906) and Qing China reformer Kang Youwei (1908). While Woolf and Kang arrived in Istanbul from different contexts, they were each deeply interested in Istanbul as the capital of an empire that called their own into provocative comparison. Both produced texts that were the result of critical reflections upon their encounters there, and each would also go on to advocate for profound societal reforms, with shared emphases on social equality, pacifism, and cosmopolitan critiques of the state. By reading Kang’s and Woolf’s Istanbul-inspired and other related texts alongside one another, this article presents these literary texts as forms of creative diplomacy that engage with historical, aesthetic, and ethical dimensions of difference, and that highlight the possibilities of imaginative interventions into official diplomatic practices and narratives.

Abstract

This article investigates the intersection of Hindutva politics and Bharatiya Janata Party policies concerning Rohingyas in India. Analyzing the government’s approach through official statements, legislative measures, and implementation strategies, it aims to uncover the factors shaping BJP policies toward Rohingyas. Additionally, it explores the Rohingya community’s perspectives on government attitudes, political dynamics, and implemented policies, providing a nuanced understanding of the policies’ impact. By shedding light on the intricate interplay between political ideology and refugee governance, the article contributes to a deeper understanding of migration, identity politics, and governance challenges in contemporary India. Scrutinizing the interweaving threads of political philosophy and refugee management, the research not only documents the current situation but also offers insights into broader implications for India’s political landscape and the lived experiences of the Rohingya community. This exploration is a crucial step toward understanding the evolving socio-political landscape in India concerning the Rohingya refugee crisis.

Abstract

Since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine on 24 February 2022, millions of Ukrainians have been forced to flee their homes. Millions have decided to leave the country and sought safety in other countries, while millions more have been displaced within Ukraine. Poland expressed solidarity with Ukraine and its citizens, both in Ukraine and in Poland. On top of state-level actions, Polish society and foreign communities in Poland came together and organized numerous solidarity actions. The influx of people from Ukraine also started a discussion about the treatment of refugees in Poland and possible changes to the functioning of the state and the society. This article examines the solidarity actions towards Ukrainian refugees, focusing on both symbolic actions and humanitarian and economic aid. It also briefly analyzes possible challenges that might have an impact on future relations.

Abstract

This article aims to compare the contents, discourse, and message frames of two Twitter accounts targeting Arab audiences using Arabic: first, the official account of Sayyid Ali Hosseini Khamenei (@khamenei_ir), who is a Twelver Shia Marja and current supreme leader of the Iranian regime, the second since 1989; and the official account of Recep Tayyip Erdogan (@RTErdogan), the president of Turkey since 2014. Covering all tweets from June 2018 to June 2020, the study collected 712 Khamenei and 388 Erdogan tweets. The article applies content analysis and framing theory, basing the analysis process on a mixed methodology (quantitative and qualitative) that uses grounded theory and considers each tweet as a unit of analysis. It reveals fifteen themes on Erdogan’s Twitter account and sixteen on Khamenei’s. The article shows that these two sets of themes were both convergent and divergent.

Abstract

The article centres on a study, extending from two preceding case studies, with a specific focus on exploring the converting role of innovation energy in the realm of innovative work behaviour (IWB). The findings underscore the pivotal role of innovation energy in converting the individual innovation properties—creativity, psychological empowerment and optimism—into IWB. It also underscores the significance of organisational attention to these individual properties, along with four additional working mechanisms—autonomy in work design, innovative teamwork, supportive leadership and external contacts—all of which impact the converting process. Insights gleaned from this case study show that innovation energy plays a crucial role in the overall IWB process. Through a careful examination of the interplay between the construct of innovation energy and five associated mechanisms, the article offers an understanding of the IWB process as observed through the lens of engaged employees actively demonstrating IWB.

Abstract

Teachers want their students to learn, and they want that learning to be equitable, with opportunities for all students. But not all students have the same needs for success. Therefore, classroom accommodations are provided through Disability Offices within universities. These accommodations are intended to be implemented in each course the student takes. Yet the actual enactment of accommodations relies on facilitation and implementation by each instructor in collaboration with the student, which may lead to variance in the level of accommodations. This project examined student interviews and student and faculty survey data to construct a narrative analysis of students’ experiences when they discuss their accommodations with their instructors. This manuscript reports a characterization of these interactions and how these interactions shape students’ success in the classroom, with recommendations for both students and instructors.

Abstract

The aim is to examine the work at a Swedish preschool that is striving to become inclusive for a group of children with disabilities. The bioecological model and a mixed method case study design were adopted. One head teacher, ten preschool staff members, and four children with disabilities participated. Data were collected by way of observations, one focus group interview, and two retrospective interviews. Statistical and thematic data analyses were conducted. Ethical approval was obtained. A decision is made to create a new unit in the preschool. The unit is given a specialised organisational typology. The preschool integrates activities and different types of support provisions. The quality of inclusion practices and support provisions in the preschool is almost good. At a time when inclusion is valued, this study can provide a basis for interesting discussions about preschool inclusion in Sweden and other countries.

Abstract

Tricontinentalism, the radical ideational universe of the Global South so important in the 1960s and 1970s, lost much of its original thrust with the neoliberal turn, and its contribution to global history has long been obscured. Recently, however, historians, political theorists and others have been studying its take on global justice and the multiple impacts of its political strategies, ideological rhetoric, identity formations, as well as its many transnational connections: traces still recognisable in the repertoire of social movements today. By unearthing these strands and constellations of global history, and by sometimes cooperating with activists, these scholars act as Foucauldian genealogists, laying bare sediments of historical agency that the hegemonic memory formation of neoliberalism had all but buried. Such efforts constitute a form of counter-history in the competitive field of political memory. This paper applies elements of mnemonic hegemony theory (mht) to analyse Tricontinental memory, with a particular focus on Latin America.

Abstract

This data paper describes the Corpus of Early English Correspondence Extension Sampler (ceeces), a linguistic corpus of personal letters covering the long eighteenth century. The letters have been sampled and transcribed from various printed editions and are now openly distributed through Zenodo. The ceeces contains 2,624 letters by 200 writers, some 1.14 million words. It comes in several versions – plain text, xml, standardised-spelling, and part-of-speech tagged – with ample metadata on the correspondents and the letters, enabling the sociolinguistic study of historical English using a range of social variables including gender, age, social rank, and geographical region.
