In this comprehensive and engaging volume, medical historian Jonathan Reinarz offers a historiography of smell from ancient to modern times. Synthesizing existing scholarship in the field, he shows how people have relied on their olfactory sense to understand and engage with both their immediate environments and wider corporal and spiritual worlds. This broad survey demonstrates how each community or commodity possesses, or has been thought to possess, its own peculiar scent. Through the meanings associated with smells, osmologies develop--what cultural anthropologists have termed the systems that utilize smells to classify people and objects in ways that define their relations to each other and their relative values within a particular culture. European Christians, for instance, relied on their noses to differentiate Christians from heathens, whites from people of color, women from men, virgins from harlots, artisans from aristocracy, and pollution from perfume. This reliance on smell was not limited to the global North. Around the world, Reinarz shows, people used scents to signify individual and group identity in a morally constructed universe where the good smelled pleasant and their opposites reeked. With chapters including "Heavenly Scents," "Fragrant Lucre," and "Odorous Others," Reinarz's timely survey is a useful and entertaining look at the history of one of our most important but least-understood senses.

The world is witnessing a media revolution similar to the birth of the film industry from the early 20th Century. New forms of media are expanding the human experience from passive viewership to active participants, surrounding and enveloping us in ways film or television never could. New immersive media forms include virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (XR), fulldome, CAVEs, holographic characters, projection mapping, and mixed experimental combinations of old and new, live, and generated media. With the continued expansion beyond the traditional frame, practitioners are crafting these new media to see how they can influence and shape the world. The Handbook of Research on the Global Impacts and Roles of Immersive Media is a collection of innovative research that provides insights on the latest in existing and emerging immersive technologies through descriptions of case studies, new business models, philosophical viewpoints, and scientific findings. While highlighting topics including augmented reality, interactive media, and spatial computing, this book is ideally designed for media technologists, storytellers, artists, journalists, designers, programmers, developers, manufacturers, entertainment executives, content creators, industry professionals, academicians, researchers, and media students.

Dealing in turn with the major palaces of the different countries in Southeast Asia, Dumarcay covers both their architectural forms and the court ceremonials to which they were adapted. In spite of dissimilarities in the varying concepts of royal power, as well as differences of religion, there emerge common factors and themes in the residences of the monarchs and the elaborate rituals over which they presided. In addition to photographic illustrations, the book is enhanced by sixty-two original architectural drawings of the palaces and their decoration."

"You, a mere palace maid, actually dares to seduce the Emperor. You better teach me the rules!" The empress said in a cold voice as she dug the tip of her long armor into the flesh of Lin Ange's chin. He had no intention of being a prisoner, but the empress had misunderstood him and wanted him dead. His life hung by a thread. The Emperor's tyrannical love had wanted to give her protection, but it had pushed her to the heart of the struggle! "Queen!" If you don't want to suffer and force me, then I will definitely not continue to live with humiliation! "If I die today, I will be repaid a hundred times in the future, if my Emperor were to show mercy to me, I will pay you back a hundred times!" She swore a cold oath to the closed red lacquer door. Under the torrential rain, she staggered and fainted ... The door did not open. Two years later, Lin Ange had destroyed all the powers in the imperial court and left her alone in the imperial harem! The empress held up her three feet long white collar, regretting her actions. However, she only saw her smiling as she approached, with the phoenix hairpin on her forehead and the phoenix hairpin on her body ...
