Inge Baxmann, Sebastian Gschel, Melanie Gru, Vera Lauf (eds.), Arbeit und Rhythmus - Lebensformen im Wandel (Work and Rhythm transforming ways of life)

Examining the topic of work involves not only economic issues, but also the way in which each individual shapes their lives. The transformation of work results in the restructuring of the rhythms of life and new ways of life. Fink Verlag, ca. 288 pages, countless illustrations, papers, 34.90, ISBN 978-3-7705-4766-1. www.fink.de

Huschka, Sabine (Hg.), Wissenskultur Tanz (Dance Knowledge Culture)

It cannot be taken for granted that dance will be understood as a knowledge culture in its own right. Yet it is beyond question that dance draws on forms of knowledge originating in praxeologies and formations of theory. But does dance also form a knowledge culture? What it is comprised of and what scientific objectives and experiential values are at work? Against the background of these issues, this anthology intervenes in existing discussions to reflect on the intermedial field of dance and knowledge from an interdisciplinary perspective. transcript Verlag, 246 pages, papers, 26.80, ISBN 978-3-8376-1053-6.
