Archives are considered to be collections of administrative, legal, commercial and other records or the actual place where they are located. They have become ubiquitous in the modern world, but emerged not much later than the invention of writing. Following Foucault, who first used the word archive in a metaphorical sense as the general system of the formation and transformation of statements in his Archaeology of Knowledge (1969), postmodern theorists have tried to exploit the potential of this concept and initiated the archival turn. In recent years, however, archives have attracted the attention of anthropologists and historians of different denominations regarding them as historical objects and grounding them again in real institutions. The papers in this volume explore the complex topic of the archive in a historical, systematic and comparative context and view it in the broader context of manuscript cultures by addressing questions like how, by whom and for which purpose were archival records produced, and if they differ from literary manuscripts regarding materials, formats, and producers (scribes). A. Bausi , C. Brockmann , M. Friedrich , and S. Kienitz , University of Hamburg.

Metaphor Competition in the Book of Job

Within the book of Job, the interlocutors (Job, the friends, and Yahweh) seem to largely ignore one anothers arguments. This observation leads some to propose that the dialogue lacks conceptual coherence. Lance Hawley argues that the interlocutors tangentially and sometimes overtly attend to previously stated points of view and attempt to persuade their counterparts through the employment of metaphor. Hawley uses the theoretical approach of Conceptual Metaphor Theory to trace the concepts of speech and animals throughout the dialogue. Beyond explaining the individual metaphors in particular texts, he shows how speech metaphors compete with one another, most perceptibly in the expressions of jobs words are wind. With regard to animal metaphors, coherence is especially perceptible in the job is a predatory animal metaphor. In these expressions, the dialogue demonstrates intentional picking-up on previously stated arguments. Hawley argues that the animal images in the divine speeches are not metaphorical, in spite of recent scholarly interpretation that reads them as such. Rather, Yahweh appears as a sage to question the negative status of wild animals that Job and his friends assume in their significations of people are animals. This is especially apparent in Yahwehs strophes on the lion and the wild donkey, both of which appear multiple times in the metaphorical expressions of Job and his friends. Dr. Lance R. Hawley is Assistant Professor at Harding School of Theology in Memphis,Tennessee, USA.

Masters Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Philosophy - Practical (Ethics, Aesthetics, Culture, Nature, Right, ...), grade: 8, University of Amsterdam, language: English, abstract: There are many definitions of poverty in a legal and philosophical sense, coming from many different institutions such as the UN, EU, individual countries and from many different philosophers. In the following work, I will suggest that we should analyze poverty and broaden the meaning together with the way of measuring it, especially adopting Amartya Sens approach. For the moment, when discussing poverty, I will refer to the de nition given by A Dictionary of Sociology (2009), in which poverty is a state in which resources, usually material but sometimes cultural, are lacking (Scott and Marshall, 2009). I aim at suggesting that my analysis of relative poverty shall be taken into account not only for social and economic policies but also when dealing with issues about absolute poverty because the quality of peoples life has to be determined with broader terms when speaking about developed countries; indeed, as I will show in the course of the thesis, because having a full-time job can still be related to a deprived situation for the human being, and even though the deprivation of the persons can be more or less severe regarding relative and absolute poverty, the level of suffering of the human being is still very high and therefore it requires attention and more sensitivity.Poverty and inequality are deeply interconnected and they can be broadly defined as the functioning and the outcome of the same system: the economic system based on capitalism. Poverty is functional for the capitalist system because it serves as lubricants, greasing the joints of an otherwise creaky social system (Wachtel, 1972; pg. 17). Poverty plays a functional part within this system as it is about the increased value of the real income of people that fall shortly above the line of the non-poor, and it works as an illusion of a given state of affairs. Also, the level of poverty allows the non-poor to buy commodities at lower prices and from this point of view, we are all served by the existence of poverty. Moreover, the second function regards the general conditions created by poverty because it ensures that the dirty work (Wachtel, 1972) will be done, such as dangerous, precarious, underpaid and undigni ed jobs. Poverty allows for the formation of a labor force, people who need to work whatever the physical and metaphorical costs are.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 5.00, New Bulgarian University, language: English, abstract: The question posed in this thesis concerns the usage of idioms in the everyday language, as well as in the book ?The Monogram Murders?. This paper, therefore, argues that in the non-literal language, some differences are obvious, and thus we can recognize an idiom quite easily. However, there are differences and divisibilities in the idioms themselves - some of them bear the meaning of their compounds while others are simply composed of words that cannot be used with their literal meaning, especially in the context of the idiom itself. The language as a system of communication has both literal and often figurative meanings. However, in the historical grammaticism such a meaning was often used in order to give notions like metaphors, similes, proverbs and idioms. Most of them often carry a metaphorical sense that makes their comprehension difficult, as in fact their meaning cannot be inferred/guessed from the meaning of their constituent parts. Taking all of the abovementioned into account, in the present thesis I will present the results of the research I have made based on the idiomatic usage in the novel of Agatha Christie ?The Monogram Murders?. Due to the extensive length of my research, I will focus on the idioms that have made their impression on me and on their translation into Bulgarian. The aim of this graduate thesis is to evaluate and describe the idiomatic expressions used in the novel ?The Monogram Murders? by Agatha Christie. That kind of analysis is particularly interesting as it concerns the work of art of ? famous writer that from ? semantic point of view describes the ideas composing the whole book.
