Die interdisziplinar angelegte Reihe setzt sich zum Ziel, das vielschichtige Wechselspiel zwischen Mensch und Welt zu beleuchten, wie es sich im Gebrauch von Stimme, Gebarde, Geste, Schrift und Zeichen manifestiert. Dieser Band befasst sich mit einer Jugend- und popularkulturellen Praxis: mit Rap, der verbalen Komponente unter den funf Ausdrucksformen der Hip Hop-Kultur. In nur wenigen Jahrzehnten ist diese interaktive und transnationale Kultur des Wettstreits und des Ausdrucks von Botschaften weltweit zu einem bedeutenden asthetischen Kommunikationsmedium geworden. Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler verschiedener Fachbereiche machten sich das an mundliche wie schriftliche Diskurstraditionen anschliebare Genre Rap unter verschiedenen Akzentsetzungen und in verschiedenen Landern und Kulturen zur Forschungsaufgabe. Ihre auf empirischen Untersuchungen basierenden Ergebnisse lassen erkennen, was diese Kultur alles bieten kann: eine politikrelevante (Uber)Lebenspraxis und - philosophie; eine Realisierung konfrontativaggressiver Energien, durch die Aufbau und Fortbestand eines Kollektivs gesichert werden kann, ein set beliebig kontextualisierbarer tools, aus dem sich spezifische Strategien der Identitatsher- und -darstellung ableiten lassen; ein (Sprach)Laboratorium, in dem dominante, aber auch sub- und gegenkulturelle Symbolsysteme rekonfiguriert werden, so dass auf Wirklichkeits(ausschnitts)konstruktionen und somit auch auf die Kulturprogramme unserer Weltgesellschaft eingewirkt werden kann.
Ein FBI-Agent erklärt, wie man Körpersprache für den persönlichen Erfolg nutzt
Author: Joe Navarro
Publisher: MVG Verlag
Wüssten wir nicht alle gerne, was andere Menschen wirklich denken, fühlen oder planen? Wie wir sie zu etwas überreden oder beeinflussen können? Wie wir sofort erkennen können, ob sie besorgt oder zufrieden sind? Und wünschen wir uns nicht auch, dass sie uns als jemanden wahrnehmen, der Selbstsicherheit, Autorität und Empathie ausstrahlt? Menschen kommunizieren ständig nonverbal: durch Körpersprache und Gesichtsausdrücke, Tonlage und Aussprache, die Art, wie sie Gefühle zeigen oder sich kleiden, aber auch durch die bewussten und unbewussten Verhaltensweisen und Einstellungen. In diesem Buch zeigt uns der Bestsellerautor und Körperspracheexperte Joe Navarro, wie wir diese universelle Sprache verstehen und anwenden können. Denn wer diesen Code kennt, wird sowohl beruflich als auch privat besser und effizienter kommunizieren, seine Ziele leichter erreichen und erfolgreicher sein.

Her prince. They became each other's refuge, a safe and magical place far from their troubled lives. Until the day Callen kissed her . . . and then disappeared from her life without a word. Years later, everyone knows who Callen Hayes is. Famous composer. Infamous bad boy. What no one knows is that Callen's music is now locked deep inside, trapped behind his own inner demons. Then he stumbles into the one person who makes the music return. Jessica. Who still sets his blood on fire. But they don't belong in each other's worlds anymore. There are too many mistakes.

Moving Beyond Lip-Service Christianity to True Faith
Author: Jason E. Hill
Publisher: WestBow Press
We live in a world in which there is great confusion about what it means to be a Christian and what it means to have genuine faith. Faith is more than belief, and being a Christian is more than attending a church service, a Bible study, or helping out the poor and needy. True faith, genuine faith in Christ, is not something that we need to convince people that we possess. Instead, true faith is seen through who we are and what we do. More Than Words is a book about faith. It is not so much a book about what faith is but instead what true faith looks like. More Than Words is a practical study of the book of James and provides understanding to what a life truly surrendered to Christ looks like and how it is to be lived. More Than Words will encourage and challenge you to examine your hearts and life to see if the faith you claim to have is truly a biblical faith.

Author: Lauren Kramer
Publisher: Trafford Publishing
How Did You Know? Thought it might have been written on my head. But you looked a little deeper instead. When we spoke; you would stare deep into my eyes. And did those things that made me realize. That you know me better than anyone can ... In her poetry compilation More Than Words, Lauren Kramer shares her poignant personal journey through what she describes as the three stages of lovelove granted, love denied, and love relinquished. Kramers verse explores the experiences of love: the taste of a kiss is as sweet as the scent of a summer rose, the moment when someone leaves without a goodbye, the pain of the denial of love, and the lover with the ability to break down walls and see straight into your heart. As Kramer ranges through the joys of new love, the insecurities of unreturned affection, and the despair that accompanies ending a relationship, she creates a safe, reassuring place where no one ever feels alone in their feelings. With an inspired, relatable style, Kramer provides an introspective glimpse into the changing seasons of the heart, as she celebrates the powerful emotion of love.
