    Description: The intention of this study was to offer an alternative perspective to the quantitative findings of larger randomised controlled trials by using a phenomenological approach to explore the impact on Quality of Life (QoL) for people with brain tumours of entering a research trial involving new anti-cancer agents. Given the subjective nature of the proposed topic, a phenomenological approach was adopted. Sample size was limited to five participants. A semi-structured interview technique was used. Interviews were digitally audio recorded with permission from those involved. In order to guide data analysis for this study, Colaizzi's framework was utilised. As a result of data analysis, two major themes were identified. These were ‘Hope and optimism’ and ‘The therapeutic relationship’. Three minor themes were also found. These were ‘A complex symptom profile’, ‘The importance of non-medical coping strategies’ and ‘Impressions of the QoL tools used’. This phenomenological study has highlighted key themes relating to QoL which are not addressed in some of the widely used assessment tools such as the EORTC QLQ C30 and BN20. They generally focus on health status, and do not capture issues identified in this study as being of significant importance to the QoL of participants such as hope and optimism, and the importance of the therapeutic relationship. They also omit reference to coping and management strategies.

    Description: Cross-dressing took on new political meanings in Germany’s Weimar Republic, with the emergence of organizations and periodicals aimed at promoting the interests of self-identified “transvestites.” This new sexological category, developed by Magnus Hirschfeld in 1910, formed the basis for a shared sense of identity and belonging among individuals who identified as members of the “opposite” sex. Drawing on the experiences of the homosexual emancipation movement and discourses of bourgeois respectability, middle-class transvestites came together to demand legal and social recognition, including acknowledgement of “transsexual” desires. Their efforts represent a critical but forgotten moment in the history of transgender political activism.

    Description: This study was conducted to determine whether fetal position at the time of preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) diagnosis affects outcomes. A retrospective study was designed to assess differences in outcomes between cephalic and noncephalic presentation at PPROM diagnosis between 24 and 34 weeks' gestation. Five hundred sixty-six cases of PPROM were identified; 108 cases (19.1%) were noncephalic at time of PPROM diagnosis. The 2 groups were similar with regard to demographics. Although membrane rupture and delivery occurred earlier in the noncephalic group, there was no difference in latency between groups (cephalic group, 6.22 days vs noncephalic group, 7.85 days; = .07). Noncephalic pregnancies were substantially more likely to be complicated by oligohydramnios, abruption, intrauterine fetal death, and infectious morbidity. Noncephalic presentation at the time of diagnosis of PPROM independently and significantly increases the risk of maternal complications in such affected pregnancies.

    Description: Commentators in the popular media of Weimar Germany paid great attention to questions of women's sport, athleticism, and physicality. Their concerns were not restricted to women's reproductive capacities—rather, women's physical emancipation was increasingly interpreted within the framework of larger cultural discourses surrounding the "masculinization" and political emancipation of the modern woman. This article examines such representations of the "masculinized" female athlete, arguing that female athleticism provided an important focus for broader concerns about changing gender relations, female sexuality, and acceptable female life trajectories at this period. Although the perceived threat to traditional male dominance symbolized by the female athlete prompted some commentators to denounce women's physical activity and emphasize traditional gender roles, the article also examines less conventional contemporary responses to women's athleticism, in particular, how a female body "steeled by sport" was reclaimed as an aesthetic ideal within the female homosexual subculture of interwar Berlin.

    Description: From its fin-de-siècle inception against the backdrop of Wilhelmine-era body culture and Lebensreform movements, the liberal German periodical Geschlecht und Gesellschaft consistently worked to push the boundaries of sexual discourse within a framework of bourgeois respectability. Until the end of World War I, it did so by prioritizing aesthetic discourse, with contributors undertaking progressive, sexually explicit readings of the Western canon, challenging controversial censorship decisions - using 'high' culture to appeal to an educated Bildungsbürgertum readership - and exploring a new Darwinian-inspired sexual ethics. While the institutional and intellectual history of the furor sexualis as a paradigm of modernity has largely been mapped since Foucault, with historians charting the 'scientification', 'biologization' and 'medicalization' of German society in early twentieth-century modernity, this article positions aesthetic discourse as a key aspect of the pursuit of the truth of sex. It also shows how this cultural paradigm largely disappeared in the Weimar era, when shifts in middle-class demographics led to an increasing focus on science in discussions of sex. [Es scheint] mir angebracht, sich klar zu werden, was die Erotik in der Kunst, wie sie in unserm Buch zum Ausdruck kommt, bezweckt. Sie dient als Ausflußbett für alle Regungen im Menschen, die sexuellen Timbre haben und sich im Liebesleben nicht erschöpfen. Ihr Maß ist ein erhebliches, wird aber immer noch so völlig unterschätzt, daß man nicht klar und laut genug von ihrem Dasein sprechen kann. Emil Schultze-Malkowsky, 'Die Erotik in der Kunst' (1908)
