It will also discuss the influence of hardware on operating systems and programming languages, and vice versa, where appropriate. The latter cut-off date is chosen to allow consensus to develop about t...

Nordic Studies on Diversit...

Invoked knowingly—but not always knowledgeably—“Brecht” became something between marketing strategy and erudite justification for another season of Broadway musicals, another ignominy endured by the Ge...
