Screenwriting With a Conscience: Ethics for Screenwriters is for screenwriters who care deeply about what they write; who are aware that movie images matter and can influence audiences; and who want to create meaningful screenplays that make powerful statements while entertaining and winning over audiences. A user-friendly guide to ethical screenwriting, this book makes the case that social responsibility is endemic to public art while it emphatically champions First Amendment rights and condemns censorship. In this dynamic and practical volume, author Marilyn Beker provides methods for self-assessment of values, ideas, and ethical stances, and demonstrates the application of these values to the development of plot, character, and dialogue. Screenwriters are introduced to ethical decision making models and shown--through specific film examples--how they can be utilized in plot and character development. In addition, specific techniques and exercises are supplied to help screenwriters determine the difference between "good" and "evil," to write realistic and compelling characters based on this determination, and to present "messages" and write dialogue powerfully without preaching. This book also puts forth a livable work philosophy for dealing with the ethics of the screenwriting business, and presents a viable personal philosophy for surviving in the screenwriting world. Screenwriting With a Conscience: Ethics for Screenwriters is an indispensible, dynamic guide for the ethics-conscious screenwriter. It is intended for screenwriters at the student and professional level, and is appropriate for beginning to graduate screenwriting courses in film and English programs, and for film courses dealing with Ethics in the Media.

Appreciating the Art of Television

Contemporary television has been marked by such exceptional programming that it is now common to hear claims that TV has finally become an art. In Appreciating the Art of Television, Nannicelli contends that televisual art is not a recent development, but has in fact existed for a long time. Yet despite the flourishing of two relevant academic subfields—the philosophy of film and television aesthetics—there is little scholarship on television, in general, as an art form. This book aims to provide scholars active in television aesthetics with a critical overview of the relevant philosophical literature, while also giving philosophers of film a particular account of the art of television that will hopefully spur further interest and debate. It offers the first sustained theoretical examination of what is involved in appreciating television as an art and how this bears on the practical business of television scholars, critics, students, and fans—namely the comprehension, interpretation, and evaluation of specific televisual artworks.

Postcolonial Readings of Music in World Literature

This book reads representations of Western music in literary texts to reveal the ways in which artifacts of imperial culture function within contemporary world literature. Bushnell argues that Western music’s conventions for performance, composition, and listening, established during the colonial period, persist in postcolonial thought and practice. Music from the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic periods (Bach through Brahms) coincides with the rise of colonialism, and Western music contains imperial attitudes and values embedded within its conventions, standards, and rules. The book focuses on the culture of classical music as reflected in the worlds of characters and texts and contends that its effects outlast the historical significance of the real composers, pieces, styles, and forms. Through examples by authors such as McEwan, Vikram Seth, Bernard MacLaverty, Chang-rae Lee, and J.M. Coetzee, the book demonstrates how Western music enters narrative as both acts of history and as structures of analogy that suggest subject positions, human relations, and political activity that, in turn, describes a postcolonial condition. The uses to which Western music is put in each literary text reveals how European art music of the seventeenth through the nineteenth centuries is read and misread by postcolonial generations, exposing mostly hidden cultural structures that influence our contemporary understandings of social relations and hierarchies, norms for resolution and for assigning significance, and standards of propriety. The book presents strategies for thinking anew about the persistence of cultural imperialism, reading Western music simultaneously as representative of imperial, cultural dominance and as suggestive of resistant structures, forms, and practices that challenge the imperial hegemony.

VFH Wiesbaden (FB Polizei), 10 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: In meiner Hausarbeit will ich zu aller erst den Begriff Mobbing definieren und einige Statistiken nennen. Danach werden die Ursachen, Mobbingvarianten und die Folgen dargestellt. Hauptaugenmerk liegt anschliessend auf den rechtlichen Schritten, die ein Betroffener (insb. im Beamtenbereich) einleiten kann., Abstract: Belastigungen, Schikanen, Psychoterror oder andere zwischenmenschliche Konflikte gibt es seit Menschen interaktiv zusammenarbeiten. Innerhalb weniger Jahre ist der Begriff Mobbing" in unsere Alltagssprache eingegangen und ist als Synonym fur Intrigen, Psychoterror, Schikane oder Krieg am Arbeitsplatz gelaufig. Jede neunte Person im erwerbsfahigen Alter wird mindestens einmal im Verlauf ihres Arbeitslebens Opfer von Mobbing. Zu diesem Ergebnis kommt der von der Bundesanstalt fur Arbeitsschutz und Arbeitsmedizin initiierte und von der Sozialforschungsstelle Dortmund durchgefuhrte "Mobbing-Report," der erstmals reprasentativ Ausmass, Arten sowie Folgen von Mobbing in Deutschland darstellt. Nach Meinungsumfragen beklagt sich sogar jeder zweite Beschaftigte in Deutschland uber systematische Anfeindungen am Arbeitsplatz. Die psychischen und physischen Folgen des zwischenmenschlichen Kleinkriegs aussern sich in vielfaltiger Weise, und nicht zuletzt ist auch der durch Mobbing in Deutschland ausgeloste volkswirtschaftliche Schaden betrachtlich. Ich will zu aller erst den Begriff Mobbing definieren und einige Statistiken nennen. Danach werden die Ursachen, Mobbingvarianten und die Folgen dargestellt. Hauptaugenmerk liegt anschliessend auf den rechtlichen Schritten, die ein Betroffener einleiten kann. Naturlich stelle ich noch dar, an wen sich ein Mobbingopfer wenden kann, und wie ihm geholfen wird."
