Essay from the year 2014 in the subject Scandinavian Languages, grade: 2,0, Göteborg University (Cultural Sciences), course: Scandinavian Studies: Cultural and Social Perspectives, language: English, abstract: In accordance with the book (re)searching Gothenburg, the aim of this essay is to show that general social processes can also be studied in smaller and peripheral cities, together with their unique aspects (Holgersson et al., p 26) - but, above that, to take that idea one step further into the periphery of the world. Accordingly, this essay is going to analyse a small, rather unimportant and unknown city in north-eastern Germany: the University and Hanseatic City of Greifswald. The paper looks at the historical and cultural development and significance of Greifswald. It concludes that this small, rather unimportant and unknown city in north-eastern Germany might be the perfect example of a successful transformation with its historic, but renovated inner city, the cobblestoned streets with modern small shops, altogether with its particular nerdy, campus-like, and authentic feel. Lisa Gutman, geboren 1989 in Berlin, studierte Germanistik uns Skandinavistik in Greifswald und Göteborg, bevor sie sich im Masterstudium an der Freien Universität Berlin auf Neuere deutsche Literatur spezialisierte. Heute lebt und arbeitet sie im Südwesten Berlins.

While there have been advancements in acceptance of the LGBTQ population, there is still a firm stronghold on discrimination and teens still face the fear of potential alienation.This leaves one of the only safe places for a teen to find information and, and indeed, find themselves in the context of the world ? at the library. Serving LGBTQ Teens offers the librarian a practical guide to library service to LGBTQ teens ? from collection development, understanding terminology, dealing with censorship issues, programming and outreach, readers? advisory, and even to creating welcoming displays, librarians will find the tools they need to offer exceptional services for LGBTQ teens.

Lisa Jakub has always been a little weird. Sensitive. Emotional. Introverted. What else would you expect from a former child actor turned writer? But the issue wasn´t just an artistic temperament; Lisa was constantly trying to hide her debilitating anxiety and depression. She assumed that retiring from her 18-year acting career and leaving Hollywood was going to be the cure for all of her issues. Guess how that worked out? Lisa was still having three panic attacks a day and found it hard to leave her house. But when anxiety-induced vomiting claimed the life of her iPod - she knew it was time to get help. It was time to talk about the things that are hard to talk about. She started to embrace her weird. In searching for a deeper understanding of mental wellness, Lisa explored her own history and reached out to others to learn how anxiety and depression impacted their lives. She interviewed veterans with PTSD and 10-year-olds with sensory integration issues, people with eating disorders and cutting habits, those whose lives were saved by medication and those who found yoga to be the answer. She went to Colorado to learn about the effects of cannabis on anxiety, and attended a meditation retreat in North Carolina to sit quietly for hours and hours and hours in ´´noble silence´´. Without a phone. Not Just Me is a hopeful, entertaining, enlightening look at the root causes of anxiety, the latest research on mood disorders, and ideas for how we can all live authentically with more peace, power, and purpose. Part memoir, part journalistic exploration - this book reminds all of us that we are not alone. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Jakub.
