Flowstone Group 3 FS3 in Table 1 and Figures 1b , 2 and 3 comprises the flowstone deposits that are actively forming below existing drip points, and include fresh growth of delicate crystals of aragonite and calcite in floor sediments and along cave walls. In other places, Flowstone Group 2 sheets directly overlie Unit 3 and the H. Three separate checks were built into the U-Th dating strategy to ensure robust results would be obtained. Sample locations are shown in Figure 1b. This was done in the full knowledge that OSL dating of cave sediments is complex and difficult to interpret e.
My thanks to Barbara Mann for her cogent comments on the poetry and for her crucial contribution to the research and the bibliography. Hence modernists such as Eliot, Pound, and Yeats clearly belong within a major paradigm by right of the claims to transcending division and difference that constantly inform their works. This indicates that caution is required when interpreting the stratigraphy and the age of the fossils they contain. During this period I was lucky enough to work with some of the most brilliant students around, many of whom have since become colleagues. Please listen.
Crowd: A blessing! What does it mean for the visibility or audibility of that writer, that reader, when the center, in the process of championing difference, denies both that writer's modernism and his or her minor status? As Lloyd himself acknowledges, they fit not only minor writing but also—modernism! Although Deleuze and Guattari end up with a much more convincing illustration of modernist deterritorialization, their monolingual construction of the minor-within-the-major has a similarly exclusionary effect.
Results U-Th dating of flowstones U-Th dating of 17 flowstone samples Figure 3 has yielded minimum depositional age estimates for the sedimentary units they overlie, and has provided insights into the timing of flowstone formation events Tables 1 , 2 and 3. Hence, resource pulses can sustain or increase species diversity, especially when occurring at an intermediate rate Connell Unit 1 consists of deposits of non-lithified, laminated, orange mud interpreted as suspension deposits in standing water Facies 1a of Dirks et al. As an internal control, we also sampled flowstones that cover the outcrops of sub-units 1a and 1b from which OSL samples were taken. The chanting mob arouses Brian from his first night with his lover, Judith, who is the sole female member of the Peoples' Front of Judea, an ineffectual splinter group fighting against the Roman occupation.
This suggests a different depositional regime and timing for the sediments and the fossils Dirks et al. The initial tests with U-Th disequilibrium dating revealed that the fossils may be much younger than originally anticipated e.
Flowstone Group 2 covers erosion remnants of Flowstones 1a-e as coatings and stalactites along drip rims. His insights on interartistic modernisms and on the poetry of David Fogel were extremely illuminating. Sample collection and isotope analysis We sampled guard hair from the dorsal area Darimont and Reimchen from all small mammals captured during spring March—April and fall October—November , and from rice rats during all seasons, for every year.
In an extraordinary piece of archival work which resulted in a two-volume annotated edition and monograph on Ben-Yitzhak's poetry and poetics, Hanan Hever discovered that six of the Hebrew poems in the opus posthumous also had German versions and that two were apparently written in German first and in Hebrew only later Hever, Flowstone Group 1 FS1 in Table 1 ; Figures 1b , 2 and 3 includes remnants of what are interpreted to be generally older flowstone units that were partly dissolved and resorbed to leave behind rims or aprons along the side walls of the cave chamber, some with sediment attached below them.
The mixed taphonomic signature suggests that fossils entered the cave over a period of time, which is minimally assumed to be during deposition of sub-unit 3b, and before deposition of Flowstone 1c. Independent dates for the same samples were obtained by laboratories at JCU and at the University of Melbourne UoM , with results displaying a high degree of concordance. In those years I read Musil.
But the selective processes, their tendentiousness and utility, should be opened up for analysis and not simply accepted as inevitable, built-in blinders.
All these perspectives have proven exceedingly helpful to me in exploring the history and theory of marginal modernisms. The orange mud is mostly the product of the cave formation process, representing the insoluble residue left over when cavities develop via dissolution of dolomite Dirks et al. Raymond Williams exposes the link between consolidating a Euro-American modernist canon from what was once a marginal literary trend and erasing unprivileged formations of marginality. We love to read the acmeists Anna Akhmatova and Osip Mandelstam, even the imaginist Sergey Yesenin, in translation, but this doesn't make our view of international modernism more inclusive. These new findings demonstrate why it can be unwise to try to predict the age of a fossil based only on its appearance, and emphasize the importance of dating specimens via independent tests. Their account of Kafka as a model for the minor runs into difficulties in three ways: the very choice of Kafka, the manner in which his minor status is constructed, and the modes of oppositional minority literature that such a construction excludes.
This indicates that caution is required when interpreting the stratigraphy and the age of the fossils they contain. My argument is that many of the exclusionary practices of literary theory and historiography can be traced back to an optical difficulty with stereoscopic and kaleidoscopic vision: the difficulty to see writers like Kafka, for example, as simultaneously maintaining multiple literary affiliations, and to view these multiple affiliations as partial, potentially contradictory, and ambivalent. We love to read the acmeists Anna Akhmatova and Osip Mandelstam, even the imaginist Sergey Yesenin, in translation, but this doesn't make our view of international modernism more inclusive. I have been privileged to know Robert Uri Alter first as a teacher and now, for the past ten years, as a close colleague.
