These three volumes are the results of two conferences on the Christian eucharist and its context in the traditions of sacred and communal meals, the first conference was held at the University of Kiel, the second at the University of Agder's Study Center at Metochi (Lesbos). Scholars from all around the world form an international, interdisciplinary and interdenominational collaboration from various fields including History of Religion, Classics, Old and New Testament, Judaism, Patristics, Archeology, and History of Art. Volume I deals with Old Testament, Early Jewish, and New Testament traditions, volume II with Patristic traditions and Iconography, and volume III approaches Near Eastern and Graeco-Roman traditions, as well as Archeology. Images, illustrations and indexes complete the volume. The broad scope covered by these studies invites readers not only to a clearer interpretation of the origin of the Eucharist and its development in the early church, but also enables them to reach a better understanding of the religious and cultural background of sacred and communal meals in general in ancient societies.
Since the outbreak of the Ukrainian crisis in late 2013, relations between the EU and Ukraine have changed fundamentally. The Ukrainian crisis has developed into a deep conflict between “the West” and Russia. In 2014 the EU and Ukraine signed the Association Agreement, and the EU has promised strong support of Ukraine’s inner reforms with a view to further approximation to the EU.The present volume contains presentations held at an interdisciplinary Conference organized by the Institute of East European Law at the University of Kiel in 2014. It includes presentations by diplomats from the EU, Germany and Ukraine as well asanalyses by political scientists, economists and lawyers. Some papers give a general overview and also show certain differences in the evaluation of developments. Other papers deal with more specific issues, illustrating both the complexity of Ukrainianreforms and the need for a more coherent and effective support strategy of the EU. The purpose of the volume is to give a structured and balanced picture of the present stateof EU-Ukrainian relations with a view to future perspectives. For the publication, the papers have been updated and a post-script has been added.
This volume presents a group of articles that deal with connections between ancient Babylonian, Iranian and Jewish communities in Mesopotamia under Neo-Babylonian, Achaemenid, and Sasanian rule. The studies, written by leading scholars in the fields of Assyriology, Iranian studies and Jewish studies, examine various modes of cultural connections between these societies, such as historical, social, legal, and exegetical intersections. The various Mesopotamian connections, often neglected in the study of ancient Judaism, are the focus of this truly interdisciplinary collection.Contributors:Jonathan Ben-Dov, Yaakov Elman, Irving Finkel, James Nathan Ford, Eckart Frahm, Uri Gabbay, Yishai Kiel, Reuven Kiperwasser, Maria Macuch, Shai Secunda, Dan D.

This volume contains the proceedings of a Symposium held at the University of Kiel, Germany, from 31 March to 6 April, 1971. The Symposium was organized by the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) and the Marine Productivity section of the International Biological Programme (IBPIPM) with the assistance of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and the International Association of Biological Oceanography (IABO). The aim of the Symposium was to summarize present knowledge of the biology of the Indian Ocean. Twenty-two presentations by invited speakers reviewed the research work carried out during the International Indian Ocean Expedition (lIOE) 1959 -1965, the first cooperative project coordinated by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC). In addition, reports were presented of postexpedition examination of material and of more recent investigations relevant to the aims of the lIOE. In keeping with the aims of "Ecological Studies", the present volume contains much new information and some synthesis, all directed towards obtaining an understanding of the functioning and organization of the ecosystem of the Indian Ocean. The plan of the Symposium was to present the relevant meteorological, physical, chemical and geological background and to follow this with the various aspects of biological oceanography. Because of the uneven stage of development of the different disciplines, the papers included in this volume vary in their analytical level.
Looking at the music of present-day Tanzania opens a broad range of perspectives on a multitude of forms of expressions that require a particularly large pluralism of methods. As cooperation und locally added value are no longer blocked out of international musical and cultural activities, the question must be raised how a contemporary musicology may be shaped under these new pretexts. The papers in this volume are vivid proof that also social, historic, commercial, political and other connotations are of interest. Mambo Moto Moto means something like "hot stuff"- a description that is certainly not amiss when talking about the traditional and contemporary music of Tanzania.The ten contributions deal with musical culture and practise in Tanzania, from the vocal polyphony of the Wagogo women (Gerhard Kubik, Philip Küppers & Kedmon Mapana) to traditional and religious music on Zanzibar and along the Swahili coast (Hildegard Kiel, Aïsha Othman), from urban trends (Kelly Askew, Werner Graebner) to the music of the quartet Wamwiduka as an example for transcultural musical processes (Tiago de Oliveira Pinto), and from questions of cultural education (Mitchel Strumpf, Kedmon Mapana) to practical aspects of preserving the treasures of Radio Tanzania (David Tinning). These deeply interesting texts offer a view on music in Tanzania that goes far beyond conventional volumes in musicology as it includes research, inventory, didactic aspects and presentations of projects in equal measure.A 80-minute DVD contains the film With the Drums in their Luggage about the journey of the Ufunuo Muheme Group from their home village in Central Tanzania to Rudolstadt and Weimar in Germany in July 2014. The disc also includes live footage from the bands Dogo Dogo Stars, Jagwa Music, Segere Original, and Wamwiduka.
For decades Germany has been one of the major host countries for international students, at the wake of the 21st century the vast majority comes from Asian countries. With increasing international competition the students, their countries of origin as well as Germany are confronted with specific challenges associated with sometimes conflicting plans, expectations, and apprehensions, amplified by uncertainties. While the students try to adapt to the conditions in Germany to make the best of their stay, their countries of origin ask whether the resources spent on the studies abroad of their nationals are well-invested, and how they might re-attract those who are graduates. As a partaker in the "global race for talents" Germany, finally, questions how it might retain those qualified in highly demanded subjects after their graduation. By contributing to answering these questions, this volume is relevant for all of these stakeholders.Beatrice Knerr is a professor at the University of Kassel (Germany) where she heads the Department of Development Economics, Migration and Agricultural Policy (DEMAP). She holds a PhD degree from Kiel University and received her habilitation from the University of Stuttgart/Hohenheim. Among her publications are ten monographs and edited and co-edited books, and around fifty articles and book chapters on labor migration and mobility. Among the co-authors are Zhao Xi, Tingting Ma, Rebecca Tlatlik, Sudeh Dehnavi, Robert Sibarani, Wildan Syafitri, Ranjita Nepal and Sadaf Mahmood who were all PhD students at DEMAP at the time of the survey activities. Most of them have graduated since then and have returned to their home countries, others have opted to stay in Germany or to move on to a third country.
Castle research witnessed a revival in recent years, and new theoretical and methodological approaches have massively changed our perception of medieval castles. But despite the fact that this renaissance is observable all over Europe, research is still mostly subject to regional perspectives. In 2016, a workshop was hosted at Kiel University, Germany, in order to address these recent developments and stimulate international scientific discourse. It was especially designed to provide a platform for young scholars. With its 11 contributions, the volume provides a vivid picture of current castle research in different areas of Europe, from Italy to Latvia and the Levant to Denmark.
The constitutional and legislative framework within the Southern African Development Community provides a positive institutional environment to ensure mainstreaming gender concerns. However, the translation and implementation of the gender perspective is at times lacking. Both agenda setting as an instrument of change management and reorganisation procedures are not used enough in the fields of economy, organisation and health. These three areas are crucial partly due to their interconnectivity and also because of their vital importance to the successful sustainable development of SADC nations. This volume results from the findings of a conference hosted by the Institute of Women and Gender Studies, Kiel, and the Institute for Women's and Gender Studies, Pretoria.
