“I Don’T Even Know Why They Love Me Ranting About This Shit”: An Analysis And Annotated Videography Of The “Hitler Reacts” Videos, Devlyn C. Tedesco 2011 Modern Foreign Languages and Literatures

“I Don’T Even Know Why They Love Me Ranting About This Shit”: An Analysis And Annotated Videography Of The “Hitler Reacts” Videos, Devlyn C. Tedesco

Modern Foreign Languages and Literatures Publications and Other Works

Adolf Hitler has been called many things since his rise to power in 1933 – cruel, maniacal, crazy, evil, just to name a few. Today’s youth, however, know him as “funny.” They associate him not with the Holocaust or World War II, but rather, with the Der Untergang YouTube parody videos in which he stars. It is these videos, along with a handful of other humorous Hitler facsimiles that represent contemporary society’s shift in their stance on the dictator. Though these videos were created to incite laughter, they have provided a glimpse into the way that many people deal ...

Divine Justice And Profane Power: Benjamin’S And Kafka’S Approach To Messianism, Solibakke Ivan Karl 2011 Syracuse University

Divine Justice And Profane Power: Benjamin’S And Kafka’S Approach To Messianism, Solibakke Ivan Karl

Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics

Intrinsically dialectical in nature, sudden messianic change and the resolute character of the law are so closely connected with one another that both concepts should be among the key factors shaping a broad understanding of global cultures today. Whether we await the coming of the messiah as the Jewish religion teaches or commemorate his having come and died as most Christian teachings hold, it appears that Walter Benjamin’s “now of a particular recognizability” (The Arcades Project 493) remains elusive, especially with respect to the correlation between the past and the future. In the spirit of temporal vectors that converge ...

Libguides On Steroids: Expanding The Use Of Libguides To Justify Workload And Support Library, Carol Leibiger 2011 Selected Works

Libguides On Steroids: Expanding The Use Of Libguides To Justify Workload And Support Library, Carol Leibiger

Carol A Leibiger

LibGuides have captured the attention of the American academic library world. Subject guides like LibGuides are intended to provide access to resources for disciplines or courses to supplement library instruction provided during one-shot sessions or at the reference desk. LibGuides are available to users when and where they are needed. A constant refrain in the literature on subject guides is the workload inherent in their creation and maintenance. LibGuides are easy to create. However, the time required to maintain LibGuides continues to have a strong impact on workload for otherwise busy librarians.

As Information Literacy Coordinator (ILC), the presenter faces ...


The Gaps We Choose To Fill And How We Choose To Fill Them: Readers' Creation Of Turkish German Identity In Texts By Zehra Çirak, Whitney Roberts Ehle 2011 Brigham Young University - Provo

The Gaps We Choose To Fill And How We Choose To Fill Them: Readers' Creation Of Turkish German Identity In Texts By Zehra Çirak, Whitney Roberts Ehle

All Theses and Dissertations

This thesis explores why readers insist on interpreting Zehra Çirak's texts in light of her Turkish German background when she claims that her texts have little to do with her Turkish heritage and are more universally applicable. While readers can interpret her texts without considering the author's biography, thereby obtaining insights into their own personal identity, I suggest that it also makes sense for readers to interpret her texts with the author's biography in mind because of current events and the history of Turkish migrant labor in Germany. To explore different possible interpretations of her texts, I ...

Termwiki: Terminology Management Just Got Easier, Uwe Muegge

Uwe Muegge

More and more practitioners in the technical communication and translation/localization field are beginning to understand the critical role multilingual terminology plays in the lifecycle of products and services, especially if those products and services are offered on international markets. What’s still not well understood is the fact that exchanging glossaries via e-mailed spreadsheets is creating almost as many problems as it solves. This article describes the key features of the latest release of TermWiki, the free collaborative terminology management solution that now supports personal glossary management.

Justifying The Margins: Marginal Culture, Hybridity And The Polish Challenge In Fontane's Effi Briest, Zorana Gluscevic 2011 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Justifying The Margins: Marginal Culture, Hybridity And The Polish Challenge In Fontane's Effi Briest, Zorana Gluscevic

Open Access Dissertations

This dissertation argues that the interpretive framework from which Fontane's Effi Briest is commonly approached limits discussion to metropolitan core culture and fails to address Fontane's path-breaking accomplishment. After outlining limitations of some prominent approaches to Effi Briest in chapter one, my next four chapters explore alternative reading strategies that instead situate the novel in the imperial context of the new German state inflected by transnational relations and problematize the tendency to see Germany as a space territorially and culturally homogenized and stable. Chapter two reads the novel through Foucault's notion of heterotopia to demonstrate Fontane's ...


Translation Tools In The Cloud: Reviewit And Termwiki At Silicon Valley's Imug, Uwe Muegge 2011 SelectedWorks

Translation Tools In The Cloud: Reviewit And Termwiki At Silicon Valley's Imug, Uwe Muegge

Uwe Muegge

Imagine a place where total newbies to localization and internationalization can just walk up and introduce themselves to the folks who got this whole industry started, a place that brims with the energy of today’s movers and shakers in the L10Nverse, a place that’s truly open, welcoming and, of course, international. The International Multilingual User Group (IMUG) is just that place: Founded in 1987 and holding regular monthly meetings since 1991, IMUG has been a driving force in the localization community that reaches far beyond its base in Silicon Valley.

Featuring the familiar wiki user interface and controls, TermWiki is an intuitive tool that allows even first-time users to add terms within minutes. A simple data model that uses pre-populated pick lists speeds up term entry by non-terminologists. As a web-based tool, TermWiki not only permits but fosters collaboration among the terminology stakeholders in an organization. Compliance with industry standards such as TBX allows users to upload existing terminology and integrate TermWiki in translation memory and content management systems.

Termwiki: A New Terminology Management System, Uwe Muegge

Uwe Muegge

While widely recognized as a best practice, comprehensive terminology management is typically not part of most translation and localization projects. Many factors may be contributing to this sorry state of affairs, but the lack of an easy-to-use, no-cost/low-cost, standards-based tool for centralized, collaborative terminology management certainly ranks high among them. TermWiki is a free open source initiative that employs the familiar wiki technology to provide a powerful yet user-friendly terminology management solution to organizations of any size - including freelance translators. This paper introduces the reader to the promise and limitations of TermWiki, and suggests possible uses in translator training.
