This volume brings together studies from various disciplines of the social sciences and humanities ( anthropology, sociology, cultural studies, history and literary theory) that shed light on the equestrian world as a historically gendered and highly dynamic field of contemporary sport and culture. From high level international dressage and jumping, polo and the turf, to the rodeo world of the Americas and popular forms of equestrian sport and culture, we are introd the turf, to the rodeo world of the Americas and popular forms of equestrian sport and culture, we are introduced to a range of issues that are played out at local and global, national and international levels. Students and scholars of gender, culture and sport will find much of interest in this original look at contemporary issues such as “engendered” (women’s and men’s) identities/subjectivities as equestrians, representations of girls, horses and the world of adventure in juvenile fiction; the current “feminization” of particular equestrian activities (and where boys and men stand in relation to this); how broad forms of social inequality and stratification play themselves out within gendered equestrian contexts; men and women and their relation to horses within the framework of current discussions on the relation of animals to humans (which may include not only love and care, but also exploitation and violence), among others. Singular contributions show how equestrian activities contribute to historical and current constructions of embodied “femininities” and “masculinities”, reflecting a world that has been moving “beyond the binaries” while continuing to be enmeshed in their persistent and contradictory legacy. … read more

Contine cele mai frumoase povesti ale lui Ion Creanga. Colectia completa a povestirilor lui Creanga intr-o singura carte, avand 14...0 de pagini. Dintre povestirile incluse in volumul de fata amintim: Povestea lui Harap-Alb, Povestea porcului, Fata babei și fata moșneagului, Capra cu trei iezi, Punguța cu doi bani, Ursul păcălit de vulpe, Ivan Turbincă, Dănilă Prepeleac, Povestea lui Stan Pățitul, Soacra cu trei nurori, Prostia omenească, Povestea unui om leneșCreanga e altceva, nici narator taran, nici folclorist, culegator, prelucrator, basmele lui nu sunt rescrise, impodobite, alterate in structura lor (ca ale lui Slavici). Fara a iesi din schemele basmului popular, fara a inventa nimic esential, Creanga retraieste cu ingenuitate intamplarile povestite. Geniul humulestean este aceasta capacitate extraordinara de a-si lua in serios eroii (fabulosi sau nu, oameni sau animale), de a le retrai aventurile, de a pune cu voluptate in fiecare propriile lui aspiratii nerostite, slabiciuni, tulburari si uimiri, adica de a crea viata. El este creatorul unei comedii umane tot asa de profunda si de universala in tipicitatea ei precum aceea a lui Sadoveanu. Nicolae Manolescu read more
