Interview with Christoph Schwabe
Melanie Voigt
Voices: A World Forum for Music Therapy , 2010,
Abstract: I travelled to Gera, where Dr. Christoph Schwabe met me [...] It was a cold, windy day, and we sat in front of the fireplace and talked for over two hours about his way toward music therapy, the development of music therapy in the German Democratic Republic (GDR), different influences and experiences within that field before 1989 and the changes that have taken place since then.
Orff Music Therapy: An Overview
Melanie Voigt
Voices: A World Forum for Music Therapy , 2003,
Abstract: This article provides a brief introduction to Orff Music Therapy, an approach to music therapy developed in Germany by Gertrud Orff at the Kinderzentrum München in Munich, Germany. It has been used as a therapy with children with developmental delays and disabilities for over thirty years at the Kinderzentrum München. In the meantime, as a result of training courses, it is also used in numerous other institutions for children and youth with developmental disabilities in Germany. The development of music therapy within the clinical setting of social pediatrics and the use of elements of Orff-Schulwerk are two factors which have had a strong influence upon the philosophy, principles and practice of this form of music therapy. A brief discussion of the historical background, the theoretical foundations and the principles and practice Orff Music Therapy will provide the reader with an overview of Orff Music Therapy. Two clinical examples will illustrate this work.
Developing an educational framework for the teaching of simulation within nurse education  [PDF]
Melanie Humphreys
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2013.34049
Abstract:

The use of simulations as a teaching and learning tool within health care has increasing importance; simulations are seen as the major teaching method for practicing and assessing developing skills, knowledge, attitudes and meaningful decision-making within the field of nursing. Certainly the utilisations of simulations feature widely within many aspects of health care; a greater understanding of the key conceptual notions will serve to benefit all of those engaged within their application. This literature review has enabled the construction of a conceptual model for the teaching of simulation and can serve to promote the continued positive development of simulations within education. Through a consistent and insightful approach to teaching, dynamic learning will be assured within this very important aspect of engaging the nursing student within the learning process.

Automated Indirect Immunofluorescence Evaluation of Antinuclear Autoantibodies on HEp-2 Cells

Abstract: Indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) on human epithelial (HEp-2) cells is considered as the gold standard screening method for the detection of antinuclear autoantibodies (ANA). However, in terms of automation and standardization, it has not been able to keep pace with most other analytical techniques used in diagnostic laboratories. Although there are already some automation solutions for IIF incubation in the market, the automation of result evaluation is still in its infancy. Therefore, the EUROPattern Suite has been developed as a comprehensive automated processing and interpretation system for standardized and efficient ANA detection by HEp-2 cell-based IIF. In this study, the automated pattern recognition was compared to conventional visual interpretation in a total of 351 sera. In the discrimination of positive from negative samples, concordant results between visual and automated evaluation were obtained for 349 sera (99.4%, kappa = 0.984). The system missed out none of the 272 antibody-positive samples and identified 77 out of 79 visually negative samples (analytical sensitivity/specificity: 100%/97.5%). Moreover, 94.0% of all main antibody patterns were recognized correctly by the software. Owing to its performance characteristics, EUROPattern enables fast, objective, and economic IIF ANA analysis and has the potential to reduce intra- and interlaboratory variability.

Introduction The detection of autoantibodies against the cell nuclei (ANA) and cytoplasmic components plays an important role in the diagnosis of many autoimmune diseases, such as systemic lupus erythematosus, mixed connective tissue disease, rheumatoid arthritis, progressive systemic sclerosis, dermato-/polymyositis, Sj?gren’s syndrome, and chronic active autoimmune hepatitis. The prevalence of ANA varies between 20 and 100%, depending on the disease and type of antibody [1–4]. The gold standard for ANA screening is indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) on human epithelial (HEp-2) cells [5–7]. Displaying a multitude of authentic autoantigens, this antigenic substrate enables highly sensitive preidentification of autoantibodies by their characteristic fluorescence patterns [8], and the determination of their titers. In addition, the confirmation of positive screening results and the identification of single ANA specificities by monospecific immunoassays (e.g., enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) or immunoblot) are recommended to support differential diagnosis, disease monitoring, and prognostic assessment. This two-step strategy has been challenged by automated ELISA and
Naufrágio, cativeiro, e rela??es ibéricas: a História trágico-marítima num contexto comparativo
Voigt, Lisa;
Varia Historia , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-87752008000100010
Abstract: this essay compares sixteenth - and early seventeenth-century portuguese shipwreck narratives, many of which were collected and published in bernardo gomes de brito's história trágico-marítima (1735-1736), with early modern spanish accounts of shipwreck and captivity. by examining not only the common strategies and structures of shipwreck and captivity narratives, but also direct intertextual connections, it illuminates the shared literary and ideological context of the early modern iberian empires. the comparison highlights the pleasurable as well as the didactic dimensions of these narratives for early modern writers and readers, thus challenging both nationalist interpretations and those that focus exclusively on their counter-hegemonic potential.

Anna Voigt
querelles-net , 2007,
Abstract: Im Rahmen des Gender Kollegs an der Universit t Wien entstand der von Eva-Maria Knoll und Birgit Sauer herausgegebene Band, in dem Aspekte ritual hnlicher, performativer Einübungsformen von Geschlechtlichkeit dargestellt werden. In den Beitr gen wird eine Strategie einer beschreibenden De-Ritualisierung, einer Dekonstruktion der Ritualisierungsformen von Geschlecht verfolgt. The volume edited by Eva-Maria Knoll and Birgit Sauer emerged from the work of the Center for Advanced Gender Studies (Gender Kolleg) at the University of Vienna. The volume presents aspects of ritualesque and performative forms of gender practice. The volume’s contributions trace the strategies of a descriptive de-ritualization, a deconstruction of forms of ritualization of gender.
Verh ltnis Wissen, Wissenschaft und Geschlecht The Relationship between Knowledge, Science, and Gender
Anna Voigt
querelles-net , 2008,
Abstract: Im vorliegenden Band sind Beitr ge versammelt, die die Er ffnung eines Blicks für die umfassendere Betrachtung von Machtverh ltnissen in Bezug auf Wissensproduktion aus feministischer Perspektive zum Ziel haben. Bei den Lesern und Leserinnen wird dabei ein Verst ndnis für Transdisziplinarit t vorausgesetzt, da der Band Beitr ge enth lt, die traditionelle Disziplingrenzen bewusst überschreiten. The volume at hand collects essays that share the goal of opening up their readers’ view to include a more encompassing examination of power relations in the context of knowledge produced from feminist perspective. They assume, however, an understanding of transdisciplinarity in their readers, as the volume contains contributions that consciously cross the traditional disciplinary borders.
Kontextualisierung von Queer Theory Contextualizing Queer Theory
Anna Voigt
querelles-net , 2008,
Abstract: Christine M. Klapeer legt in diesem Einführungsband dar, aus welchen politischen und theoretischen Kontexten heraus sich queer‘ zu einem Begriff mit besonderem politischem und theoretischem Gehalt entwickelt hat. Wesentlich zielt sie dabei auf eine kritische Kontextualisierung von queer theory”. Die Autorin geht zun chst auf das Gay Liberation Movement ein, grenzt die Queer Theory vom Poststrukturalismus, von feministischen Theorien und den Lesbian and Gay Studies ab, beleuchtet Eckpunkte queeren Denkens und zeichnet schlie lich die Entwicklungen in sterreich sowohl politisch-rechtlich als auch bewegungsgeschichtlich und in der Wissenschaftslandschaft nach. Christine M. Klapeer’s introductory volume demonstrates the manner in which ‘queer’ grew out of various political and theoretical contexts to become a term with special political and theoretical content. She focuses primarily on a critical contextualization of “queer theory.” The author begins by approaching the Gay Liberation Movement and then distinguishes Queer Theory from poststructuralism, from feminist theories, and from Lesbian and Gay Studies. She continues on to illuminate the key aspects of queer thought and concludes by sketching the development in Austria in terms of politics and the law, the history of movements, and within the landscape of knowledge.
