              The Imagery of Nature in Derek Walcott's Poetry (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Seminar paper from the year 2018 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,2, University of Frankfurt (Main) (IEAS), course: Poetry from Somewhere Else, language: English, abstract: The paper is about the imagery of nature in Derek Walcott's poetry. When reading Walc...ott's poetry or on closer examination of his paintings one can identify that there are symbols and metaphors that are often repeated in his works: naturalistic phenomena, such as different plants and their botanical and scientific correct names or the deep blue sea and sky and other symbols of nature. In his poems Sir Derek Alton Walcott used the imagery of nature to connect to his Caribbean heritage, to describe his own problems and experiences during child- and adulthood, and to emphasize the facets of traveling. Sir Derek Alton Walcott, who was often referred to as Derek Walcott (he also signed with this form), was born in 1930 in Castries, St. Lucia and died at his home in Cap Estate, St. Lucia in 2017. Walcott was a well-known Caribbean poet, playwright and painter who also received the Nobel Prize for literature in 1992 among other literary prizes and nominations. He also had teaching positions at Boston, Columbia, Rutgers and Yale. Throughout his career he received many literary awards, often for his epic poem collections, taught and served as a professor at different universities such as the University of Alberta (Canada) and the University of Essex (England) or the Boston University and occasionally painted excellent art works with water colors during his free time. Derek Walcott's father, Warwick Walcott, who died when the poet and his twin brother were not more than one year old, may have passed on some of his talent to his son: The artifacts he bequeathed to his family were books and paintings. The loss of the father at such an early age and his missing while growing up and developing to a young matured man is mirrored in many of Walcott's literary works. Walcott's mother, Ali

              Professorial Dissertation from the year 2019 in the subject Communications - Public Relations, Advertising, Marketing, Social Media, grade: 10, Universita degli Studi di Milano, language: English, abstract: This study aims to explore the internationalisation in higher education i...n Australia. The increasing globalisation and interdependence of world economies, and the revolution in ICTs (information and communication technologies) have made it imperative for universities to be truly international in character and outlook. The result of this study on the Australian educational scenario has revealed that internationalisation of higher education is a complex, multidimensional and often fragmented process that includes different rationales varying greatly according to cultural and economic insights: it ranges from international research collaboration, to horizontal mobility for both international and national students as well as a focus on a more interdisciplinary and international curricula. Overall, by comparison with the other Anglo-Saxon countries, the results of this study have shown that the development of internationalisation in higher education in Australia has three peculiar features: the first is the unambiguously commercial nature, according to which innovative strategies (such as a proper destination branding borrowed from the tourism industry) were put in place through promotional recruiting agencies abroad and other national entities that sponsored a massive participation in student recruitment fairs. Secondly, there was an exponential market growth of non-academic student servicing, which surpassed academic and research capacity: as a result of this marketing and recruitment as well as complimentary services are managed by commercial companies associated with the university. The third and final feature specific to Australia is its ability to be a pioneer in the provision of educational opportunities overseas through the development of offshore campuses

              Project Report from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1,0, University of Bayreuth, language: English, abstract: Language is the very life-breath of being Maori Looking at this quotation from the Maori Language Commission th...e impression is created that language is the most important elixir for the Maoris and also their culture. However, is this elixir, Te Reo Maori, still alive or has the English language suffocated it? With the colonisation of New Zealand by Great Britain the Maoris had to face several severe changes in their language use and their culture. These changes include, among other things, the shift in the language of communication from Te Reo Maori to English and the displacement of Maori tribes from their native land. Language death, and hence also cultural death, would have been the worst case. But with the help of the New Zealand Government Te Reo Maori and the culture of the Maoris is experiencing a unique revival. Nevertheless, Te Reo Maori has also had a permanent influence on the English language. It was most influential during the first years of colonisation and now again in the period of revitalisation. Similarly, other languages have had an influence on New Zealand English and particularly on the language situation in New Zealand. More than 180 languages have been spoken or understood by New Zealanders in 2006 and this number might have increased by now. In spite of this large number of languages being spoken or understood, hardly any policies for languages exist though a necessity for such a policy is more than present. The aim of this essay is to have a detailed look at the people of the Maori and the influence they had on the English spoken in New Zealand as well as to analyse the current language situation, including existing language policies, in New Zealand. In order to do this, the people and the culture of the Maori will be described at first and after that the influences Euro

              Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject English - Applied Geography, grade: very good, University of Applied Sciences, Joanneum (-), 15 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Australia with its six states and its two territories is the remotest of the s...ettled continents. The name Australia comes from the Latin expression Terra Australis Incognita, which simply means Southern land. It was originally part of the ancient continent of Gondwanaland. Australia emerged as a separate continent about 100 million years ago, when Antarctica broke away and drifted southwards. Australia is still a moving island. The first Europeans in Australia were almost certainly the Portuguese. The first confirmed visit was undertaken by the Dutch in 1616. In the following years Great Britain sent their convicts to Australia. In total, Britain transported 130.000 convicts to Australia also for the most trivial crimes. There were about 300.000 Aborigines in Australia when the Europeans arrived. Today about 200.00 Aborigines live in Australia.The major cities of Australia are Sydney, which is the largest city, Canberra, which is the capital of Australia and Melbourne. The Australians are very friendly, outgoing and informal people. It's easy to come into contact with them and you won't have problems to finding a way to handle them in business deals. Australia is a federal parliamentary democracy, an independent self-governing state and a member of the Commonwealth of Nations. The constitution is based on the British parliamentary traditions; the head of the state is the British sovereign.Australia is very rich in natural resources and also has a large industry. Today, agriculture accounts for only 3 percent of the GDP, the gross domestic product. The most important economy factor is the service sector, first of all the financial service sector which accounted in the 1990s for more than 60 percent of the Australian gross domestic product. But also, tourism has

Significant areas of research in relation to Contemporary Indigenous Art are not only certain institutions within the art world such as art centres, art galleries and museums but also public areas like universities, government bureaus and particularly touristic institutions, as a vast majority of non-indigenous people experience non-Western art in this context only.

              Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2018 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Public International Law and Human Rights, grade: 80, University of Canberra (School of Management, Faculty of Business, Government & Law), course: Master of Business Admini...stration, language: English, abstract: The politically and economically turmoiled countries such as Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Burma and Myanmar in recent years continue to face conflicts and insecurity arising from civil and military wars, the numbers of displaced people from these nations continue to grow and the most likely host nation has been normally Australia. 2015-2016 statistics show that Australia has been settling refugees in its various states. Refugee Council of Australia's studies show that Australia currently hosts over 740,000 refugees and humanitarian migrants settled by Australia since its federation which have significant impacts in enhancing the nation's social, cultural and economic life. In the case of Australia, the main question that most people keep on asking is whether these refugees are an economic burden or entrepreneurial opportunity for Australian nation. While those who oppose the presence of refugees in Australia argue that these refugees cost the Australian government a significant funding in their settlement. It has also been observed that upon a successful integration into the host countries, the refugees enable themselves to make transitional and transformational changes into new society. The refugees help to make host nations' cultural, more diverse and enrich social and humanitarian values by projecting multiculturalism into the hosting societies. Refugees most often bring amazing strengths, knowledge, wisdom, resilience, and lived histories to their newly settled lives. Refugee also bring with them their own skills and capabilities and an eagerness to contribute and give back to the hosting communities who welcome them. Refugees who settled in Australia

As is the case in various other industries, this industry also has realised that it is easier and considerably cheaper to retain existing customers instead of attracting new customers in an ongoing process. Various tools of the CRM spectrum are currently being utilised and this report presents these, including a comparison which organisation appears to have the most successful and most promising strategy in terms of CRM. After identifying the main players in the industry, this report will analyse what can be done in relation to CRM within this industry. The next section concentrates on challenges that arise for organisations willing to utilise CRM tools before detailing which CRM strategy each company appears to be using. Finally, a comparison of the different CRM strategies as well as an outlook will be provided, additionally offering recommendations to organisations that operate within this industry.

              Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject History - Australia, Oceania, grade: 1,0, Eoetvoes Lorand University, language: English, abstract: In the Australian society, there seems to be an ongoing conflict, between the white british Australians, and the initial citizens of ...the island continent, the Indigenous people. The image that most white Australians have of those Aboriginal people, is mainly negative. Why is that so? What is the white Australians' source of knowledge about Aboriginal people? And most importantly: What role does the mainstream media in Australia play in the continuously bad relationship between white Australians and Aboriginal people? Does the mainstream media contribute to that conflict? And if so, in what way? In the following, I am going to try to answer those questions. I am going to try to shed some light on the role that the media is playing in the relationship between white Australians and Aboriginal people. In order to answer those questions, it seems indispensable, to first have a look into the history of Australia and Aboriginal Australians. I will outline the most important events in the history of Australia, starting with the arrival of the Indigenous people, ending with the current situation. After that, I will amplify the Aboriginal culture, assuming that to most readers it is largely unknown. In the main part of this work, I will then investigate the mainstream media coverage of Aboriginal affairs in Australia. I will try to ascertain in what manner the mainstream media treats Aboriginal topics. Further I want to determine if prejudices and stereotypes towards Aboriginal people exist, and how the current situation in the Australian society could be described. In the end, I will attempt to summarize my findings in a final conclusion.
