Authors: "Doris A. Santoro, Lizabeth Cain, editors."
Publisher: Harvard Education Press 1809
"Principled Resistance: How Teachers Resolve Ethical Dilemmas brings together senior scholars and activist teachers to explore the concept of resistance as a necessary response to mandates that conflict with their understanding of quality teaching. The book provides vivid examples of the pedagogical, professional, and democratic principles undergirding resistance, as well as the distinct perspective of each of its contributors: teachers who reflect on their acts of principled resistance; teacher educators who study teachers and support their professional growth; and historians who demonstrate that a tradition of teachers principled resistance has had a significant impact on American society, not only on schools and teaching. They also show the steps teachers take, in their reasoning and in their actions, to resist policies and mandates they are expected to enact. This volume offers a critical and unique resource for teacher educators who are preparing prospective teachers to navigate the contentious terrain of education politics, teachers who are interested in leading change, and others interested in educational ethics. -- Provided by publisher"

I m not a robot
Authors: Howie Good.
Publisher: Tolsun Books "Tolleson, Arizona"
"I m Not a Robot is an absurd reminder of the terrifying realities we often turn a numb mind to. Howie Good is brutal: a woman carries her own eyeball, kids beat a homeless man to death with skateboards, a neighbor nails his scrotum to the floor. But in his existential plea is a sympathy that only a human could understand. Good takes the cogs and gears that have been forged in us through constant tragedy and sculpts them back into guts and organs that thump and feel. It is possible to laugh and cry, and Good reminds us that salt can turn things alkaline or acid, that we re all connected, no matter how far we live from each other. -- Amazon.com"

The other mother
Authors: "Goodman, Carol. . . more- Carol Goodman."
Publisher: "William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollinsPublishers" "New York, NY"
"From the author of the internationally bestselling The Lake of Dead Languages comes a gripping novel about madness, motherhood, love, and trust. When Daphne Marist and her infant daughter, Chloe, pull up the gravel drive to the home of Daphne's new employer, it feels like they've entered a whole new world. Tucked in the Catskills, the stone mansion looks like something out of a fairy tale, its lush landscaping hiding the view of the mental asylum just beyond its border. Daphne secured the live-in position using an assumed name and fake credentials, telling no one that she's on the run from a controlling husband who has threatened to take her daughter away. Daphne's new life is a far cry from the one she had in Westchester where, just months before, she and her husband welcomed little Chloe. From the start, Daphne tries to be a good mother, but she's plagued by dark moods and intrusive thoughts that convince her she's capable of harming her own daughter. When Daphne is diagnosed with Post Partum Mood Disorder, her downward spiral feels unstoppable--until she meets Laurel Hobbes. Laurel, who also has a daughter named Chloe, is everything Daphne isn't: charismatic, sophisticated, fearless. They immediately form an intense friendship, revealing secrets to one another they thought they'd never share. Soon, they start to look alike, dress alike, and talk alike, their lives mirroring one another in strange and disturbing ways. But Daphne realizes only too late that being friends with Laurel will come at a very shocking price--one that will ultimately lead her to that towering mansion in the Catskills where terrifying, long-hidden truths will finally be revealed ... --"

"Whiteness at the table : antiracism, racism, and identity in education"
Authors: "edited by Shannon K. McManimon, Zachary A. Casey, and Christina Berchini."
Publisher: Lexington Books "Lanham, Maryland"
"Antiracist work in education has proceeded as if the only social relation at issue is the one between white people and people of color. But what if our antiracist efforts are being undermined by unexamined difficulties and struggles among white people? Whiteness at the Table examines whiteness in the lived experiences of young children, family members, students, teachers, and school administrators. It focuses on racism and antiracism within the context of relationships. Its authors argue that we cannot read or understand whiteness as a phenomenon without attending to the everyday complexities and conflicts of white people s lives. This edited volume is entitled Whiteness at the Table, then, for at least three reasons. First, the title evokes the origins of this book in the ongoing storytelling and theorizing of the Midwest Critical Whiteness Collective--a small collective of antiracist educators, scholars, and activists who have been gathering at its founders dining room table for almost a decade. Second, the book s authors are theorizing whiteness not just in terms of structural aspects of white power, but in terms of how whiteness is reproduced and challenged in the day-to-day interactions and relationships of white people. In this sense, whiteness is always already at the table, and this book seeks to illuminate how and why this is so. Finally, one of the primary aims of Whiteness at the Table is to persuade white people of their moral and political responsibility to bring whiteness--as an explicit topic, as perhaps the most important problem to be solved at this historical moment--to the table. This responsibility to theorize and combat whiteness cannot and should not fall only to people of color. -- Publisher s description"

Graffiti grrlz : performing feminism in the hip hop diaspora
Authors: Jessica Nydia Pabón-Colón.
Publisher: New York University Press New York
"Since the dawn of Hip Hop graffiti writing on the streets of Philadelphia and New York City in the late 1960s, writers have anonymously inscribed their tag names on trains, buildings, and bridges. Passersby are left to imagine who the author might be, and, despite the artists anonymity, graffiti subculture is seen as a boys club, where the presence of the graffiti girl is almost unimaginable. Jessica Nydia Pabón-Colón interrupts this stereotype and introduces us to the world of women graffiti artists. Drawing on the lives of over 100 women in 23 countries, Pabon-Colon argues that graffiti art is an unrecognized but crucial space for the performance of feminism. She demonstrates how it builds communities of artists, reconceptualizes the Hip Hop masculinity of these spaces, and rejects notions of girl power. Graffiti Grrlz also unpacks the digital side of Hip Hop graffiti subculture and considers how it widens the presence of the woman graffiti artist and broadens her networks, which leads to the formation of all-girl graffiti crews or the organization of all-girl painting sessions. -- Publisher s description"

"Rethinking Black German Studies Approaches, Interventions and Histories"
Authors: "Florvil, Tiffany. . . more- Tiffany Florvil, Vanessa Plumly."
Publisher: "Peter Lang Ltd, International Academic Publishers" Oxford
"Black German Studies is an interdisciplinary field that has experienced significant growth over the past three decades, integrating subjects such as gender studies, diaspora studies, history, and media and performance studies. The field’s contextual roots as well as historical backdrop, nevertheless, span centuries. This volume assesses where the field is now by exploring the nuances of how the past – colonial, Weimar, National Socialist, post-1945, and post-Wende – informs the present and future of Black German Studies , how present generations of Black Germans look to those of the past for direction and empowerment , how discourses shift due to the diversification of power structures and the questioning of identity-based categories , and how Black Germans affirm their agency and cultural identity through cultural productions that engender both counter-discourses and counter-narratives. Examining Black German Studies as a critical, hermeneutic field of inquiry, the contributions are organized around three thematically conceptualized sections: German and Austrian literature and history , pedagogy and theory , and art and performance. Presenting critical works in the fields of performance studies, communication and rhetoric, and musicology, the volume complicates traditional historical narratives, interrogates interdisciplinary methods, and introduces theoretical approaches that help to advance the field."

The torrid zone : Caribbean colonization and cultural interaction in the long seventeenth century
Authors: edited by L. H. Roper.
Publisher: University of South Carolina Press "Columbia, South Carolina"
"Brimming with new perspectives and cutting-edge research, the essays collected in The Torrid Zone explore colonization and cultural interaction in the Caribbean from the late 1600s to the early 1800s--a period known as the long seventeenth century--a time when these encounters varied widely and the diverse actors were not yet fully enmeshed in the culture and power dynamics of master-slave relations. The events of this era would profoundly affect the social and political development of both the colonies that Europeans established in the Caribbean and the wider world. This book is the first to offer comparative treatments of Danish, Dutch, English, and French trading, pirating, and colonizing activities in the Caribbean and analysis of the corresponding interactions among people of African, European, and Native origin."

"Constructing Catalan Identity : Memory, Imagination, and the Medieval"
Authors: Michael A. Vargas .
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan Cham
"This is a book about how Catalans use their past, real and imagined, in the construction of their present and future. Michael A. Vargas inventories the significant people, signal events, and familiar icons that constitute the Catalan collective memory, from Wilfred the Hairy and Sant Jordi to the mountain monastery of Montserrat, red peasant caps, and human towers in town squares. He then considers how that inventory is employed to posit a brilliant political heritage at the forefront of modern European democracy--and for some, to build a powerful independence movement. As the future of Catalonia remains fraught, this book offers a lively and engaging exploration of how we draw upon history to confront contemporary challenges. -- Publisher s description"

"Marking time : Andy Warhol s vision of celebrations, commemorations, and anniversaries"
Authors: edited by Reva Wolf.
Publisher: Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art "New Paltz, New York"
"In 1967, on the fifth anniversary of Marilyn Monroe's untimely death at the age of thirty-six, Andy Warhol created a series of ten Marilyn screen prints. His decision to produce these ""anniversary"" prints fits a pattern in his practices as an artist, and in ours as a culture. The varied ways Warhol explored such moments is the subject of this publication. It is well known that Warhol was obsessed with time, as seen in his use of repetition, his work in the time-based media of film and tape recording, and his creation of Time Capsules. Less familiar, and virtually unexamined, is his multifaceted exploration of the related topic of commemoration. In this volume, readers are invited to consider five distinct time-marking occasions as featured in Warhol's art: holidays; commemorations of things; anniversaries of deaths; commemorations of people; and celebrations. Essays on specific works of art place them within their historical contexts and shed light on their significance as anniversary objects and as reminders of our mortality."

Meeting with my brother : a novella
Authors: Yi Mun-yol ; translated by Heinz Insu Fenkl with Yoosup Chang.
Publisher: Columbia University Press New York
"Yi Mun-yol s Meeting with My Brother is narrated by a middle-aged South Korean professor, also named Yi, whose father abandoned his family and defected to the North at the outbreak of the Korean War. Many years later, despite having spent most of his life under a cloud of suspicion as the son of a traitor, Yi is prepared to reunite with his father. Yet before a rendezvous on the Chinese border can be arranged, his father dies. Yi then learns for the first time that he has a half-brother, whom he chooses to meet instead. As the two confront their shared legacy, their encounter takes a surprising turn. Meeting with My Brother represents the political and psychological complexity of Koreans on both sides of the border, offering a complex yet poignant perspective on the divisions between the two countries. Through a series of charged conversations, Yi explores the nuances of reunification, both political and personal. This semiautobiographical account draws on Yi s own experience of growing up with an absent father who defected to the North and the stigma of family disloyalty. First published in Korea in 1994, Meeting with My Brother is a moving and illuminating portrait of the relationships sundered by one of the world s starkest barriers. -- Publisher s description"

"Milton, materialism, and embodiment : one first matter all"
Authors: edited by Kevin J. Donovan and Thomas Festa.
Publisher: Duquesne University Press "Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania"
"Bringing together eight original essays from leading and emerging Miltonists, this volume explores a second wave of critical thought about Milton s monist materialism, the view that all existence arises from a single substance or reality. Contributors examine sensory matters of fragrance and sound, the literary politics of walking and of sexual reproduction, the ontology of embodiment as human beings and angels, and the appropriation of Milton s materialism by both early Mormons in the nineteenth century and fringe figures such as gun enthusiasts in the twentieth. In so doing, they demonstrate the ongoing relevance of Milton s writings in the history of views of embodiment and materialist thought. -- Penn State University Press"

"Wealth, commerce, and philosophy : foundational thinkers and business ethics"
Authors: edited by Eugene Heath and Byron Kaldis ; with a foreword by Deirdre N. McCloskey.
Publisher: The University of Chicago Press Chicago
"The moral dimensions of how we conduct business affect all of our lives in ways big and small, from the prevention of environmental devastation to the policing of unfair trading practices, from arguments over minimum wage rates to those over how government contracts are handed out. Yet for as deep and complex a field as business ethics is, it has remained relatively isolated from the larger, global history of moral philosophy. This book aims to bridge that gap, reaching deep into the past and traveling the globe to reinvigorate and deepen the basis of business ethics. Spanning the history of western philosophy as well as looking toward classical Chinese thought and medieval Islamic philosophy, this volume provides business ethicists a unified source of clear, accurate, and compelling accounts of how the ideas of foundational thinkers - from Aristotle to Friedrich Hayek to Amartya Sen - relate to wealth, commerce, and markets. The essays illuminate perspectives that have often been ignored or forgotten, informing discussion in fresh and often unexpected ways. In doing so, the authors not only throw into relief common misunderstandings and misappropriations often endemic to business ethics but also set forth rich moments of contention as well as novel ways of approaching complex ethical problems. Ultimately, this volume provides a bedrock of moral thought that will move business ethics beyond the ever-changing opinions of headline-driven debate. -- Publisher s description"

From there, she tackles major crises in specific countries from the 1990s on, including those in Mexico, Asia Thailand, Indonesia, South Korea and Malaysia , Russia, Brazil and Argentina, as well as the Great Recession of 2008.

Sci-Book : STEPS to STEM student science notebook
Authors: Aaron D. Isabelle and Gilbert A. Zinn.
Publisher: Sense Publishers Rotterdam ; Boston ; Taipei
"A Sci-Book or Science Notebook serves as an essential companion to the science curriculum supplement, STEPS to STEM. As students learn key concepts in the seven big ideas in this program Electricity and Magnetism; Air and Flight; Water and Weather; Plants and Animals; Earth and Space; Matter and Motion; Light and Sound , they record their ideas, plans, and evidence. There is ample space for students to keep track of their observations and findings, as well as a section to reflect upon the use of Science and Engineering Practices as set forth in the Next Generation Science Standards NGSS . Using a science notebook is reflective of the behavior of scientists. One of the pillars of the Nature of Science is that scientists must document their work to publish their research results; it is a necessary part of the scientific enterprise. This is important because STEPS to STEM is a program for young scientists who learn within a community of scientists. Helping students to think and act like scientists is a critical feature of this program. Students learn that they need to keep a written record if they are to successfully share their discoveries and curiosities with their classmates and with the teacher. Teachers should also model writing in science to help instill a sense of purpose and pride in using and maintaining a Sci-Book. Lastly, students documentation can serve as a valuable form of authentic assessment; teachers can utilize Sci-Books to monitor the learning process and the development of science skills. -- Publisher s description."

"Destined To Fly"" is a 41-minute documentary film about Cole Palen, the founder of the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome. Founded in 1958, Cole’s passion and vision to build, repair and fly antique airplanes transcends multiple generations forging connections through childhood experience, memory and storytelling. But the community brought together by the romantic era of flight lost their hero after the death of Cole Palen in 1993. More than twenty years later, Cole’s childhood dream is sustained by the now grown children who were inspired at an early age by Cole’s personal love for vintage aviation."

The bioarchaeology of dissection and autopsy in the United States
Authors: "Kenneth C. Nystrom, editor."
Publisher: Springer Cham
"Encountering evidence of postmortem examinations - dissection or autopsy in historic skeletal collections is relatively rare, but recently there has been an increase in the number of reported instances. And much of what has been evaluated has been largely descriptive and historical. The Bioarchaeology of Dissection and Autopsy brings together in a single volume the skeletal evidence of postmortem examination in the United States. Ranging from the early colonial period to the early 1900 s, from a coffeehouse at Colonial Williamsburg to a Quaker burial vault in lower Manhattan, the contributions to this volume demonstrate the interpretive significance of a historically and theoretically contextualized bioarchaeology. The authors employ a wide range of perspectives, demonstrating how bioarchaeological evidence can be used to address a wide range of themes including social identity and marginalization, racialization, the nature of the body and fragmentation, and the emergence of medical practice and authority in the United States. -- Publisher s description"

"Advancing empire : English interests and overseas expansion, 1613-1688"
Authors: L.H. Roper.
Publisher: Cambridge University Press "New York, NY, USA"
"In Advancing Empire, L.H. Roper explores the origins and early development of English overseas expansion. Roper focuses on the networks of aristocrats, merchants, and colonial-imperialists who worked to control the transport and production of exotic commodities, such as tobacco and sugar, as well as the labor required to produce them. He is primarily interested in the relationship between the English state and the people it governed, the role of that state in imperial development, the socio-political character of English colonies and English relations with Asians, Africans, American Indians, and other Europeans overseas. The activities stimulated the expansion and integration of global territorial and commercial interests that became the British Empire in the eighteenth century. In exploring these activities from a wider perspective, Roper offers a novel conclusion that revises popular analyses of the English Empire and of Anglo-America -- Provided by publisher."

Authorizing translation
Authors: edited by Michelle Woods.
Publisher: "Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor and Francis Group" "Abingdon, Oxon ; New York, NY"
"Authorizing Translation applies ground-breaking research on literary translation to examine the intersection between Translation Studies and literary criticism, rethinking ways in which analyzing translation and the authority of the translator can provide nuanced micro and macro readings of literary work and the worlds through which it moves. A substantial introduction surveys the field and suggests possible avenues for future research, while six case-study-based chapters by a new generation of Literature and Translation Studies scholars focus on the question of authority by asking: 1. Who authors translations? 2. Who authorizes translations? 3. What authority do translations have in different cultural contexts? 4. What authority does Literary Translation Studies have as a field? The hermeneutic role of the translator is explored through the literary periods of Romanticism, Modernism, and Postmodernism, and through different cultures and languages. The case studies focus on data-centered analysis of reviews of translated literature, ultimately illustrating how the translator s authority creates and hybridizes literary cultures. Authorizing Translation will be of interest to students and researchers of Literary Translation and Translation Studies. Additional resources for Translation and Interpreting Studies are available on the Routledge Translation Studies Portal: http://cw.routledge.com/textbooks/translationstudies. -- Publisher s description"

In his voice : Maurice Blanchot s affair with the neuter
Authors: David Appelbaum.
Publisher: State University of New York Press Albany
"In His Voice considers the idea of the neuter in Maurice Blanchot s work, and seeks to work out through an exercise of literary impersonation, or ventriloquism, how and why Blanchot relied on this form. Neither active nor passive, the neuter expresses a kind of third voice beyond the command of the author, one that speaks paradoxically of what lies outside of speaking but nonetheless exerts an irrepressible influence on thought. The neuter is exilic, messianic, and fragmentary. Since it cannot be directly accounted for, Blanchot uses a number of indirect approaches--notably, myth--to announce the key elements of his view. Orpheus, Odysseus, and principally Narcissus figure his conception and elaborate the operation of giving voice. Through a distillation of Blanchot s narrative and critical texts--focusing on the late works, The Step Not Beyond, and The Writing of the Disaster--and through an emphasis on performance, In His Voice enacts the event of writing in search of how authors inscriptive reality appears in the world. -- Publisher s description"

The village that now contributes to the mothering experience has grown exponentially, granting mothers access to interactional partners and knowledge never before available. This volume of works explores the impact of social media forms on our cultural understandings of motherhood and the ways that we communicate about the experience and practice of mothering."

On the street and in the studio : photographs donated by Howard Greenberg
Authors: edited by Daniel Belasco.
Publisher: Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art "New Paltz, New York"
"The history of photography concerns its materiality as much as its imagery. The Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at the State University of New York at New Paltz is firmly engaged with this history of reinvention. Nearly half of the collection came to the museum from a single source: photography specialist and dealer Howard Greenberg. On the Street and in the Studio documents the enormous contribution made by Greenberg in building a collection of nineteenth- and twentieth-century photography at the Dorsky Museum. The catalogue includes an essay by curator Daniel Belasco that surveys the strengths and characteristics of the collection. An interview with Howard Greenberg sheds light on how he collects photographs and chooses to present them to institutions. The portfolio section features images of both the photographic images and reverse sides of nineteen prints in the collection by Eugène Atget, Berenice Abbott, James Van Der Zee, Margaret Bourke-White, and others, revealing how there is as much relevant information on the back as on the picture itself, an insight made available for students and the general public. -- SUNY press"

The floating world : holograms by Rudie Berkhout
Authors: "Daniel Belasco, exhibition curator ; with contributions by Rudie Berkhout, Martina Mrongovius, Sara J. Pasti."
Publisher: Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art "New Paltz, New York"
"The first-ever catalogue dedicated to light artist and holographer Rudie Berkhout, The Floating World focuses on the transmission holograms Berkhout made from 1978 to 1989, a peak period of his creativity and professional recognition. In a transmission hologram, a rear-mounted light shines on a glass plate to illuminate a three-dimensional image. Curator Daniel Belasco situates Berkhout in the art and culture of his day, from the mass-produced holograms on the cover of National Geographic to the other artists working at the intersection of technology and audience participation. Holography scholar Martina Mrongovius provides a detailed account of the technology and craft in Berkhout s working process. Additional catalogue components include reprints of two important artist statements, multiple illustrations of exhibited art works, bibliography, and detailed exhibition history. Berkhout envisioned his abstract holograms as the marriage of science, art, and philosophy. -- SUNY Press"

New Yorks broken constitution : the governance crisis and the path to renewed greatness
Authors: "edited by Peter J. Galie, Christopher Bopst, and Gerald Benjamin."
Publisher: State University of New York Press Albany
"On its face, New York State s constitution is an elaborate and impressive aggregation of processes, powers, mandates, and limits. But many of these are inoperative, and New Yorkers who read the document and believe what it says will come away with a massive misunderstanding of the realities of state government. The essays in this book seek to clarify the realities by bringing attention to the gaps between what the constitution says and how the state is actually governed, and they provide a disquieting picture of the state of the state s constitution. Among the topics addressed are state debt and budgeting practices, legislative redistricting, local government, gambling, conservation, and the process of amending the constitution... The chapters explain the constitutional provisions in question, including the reasons for their constitutional status; how they have been used and interpreted; and the extent of the gaps between the constitutional provisions and practice. Various proposals for reform are also examined. -- Back cover."

"Similar twigs of domesticity and salvaging weave throughout the grass and feathers of Howie Good s A Ghost Sings, a Door Opens. The final entry in a trilogy or tetralogy, depending on how you look at it , the collection finds Good in somewhat serene territory as he ponders those quiet moments lost within the squall of our maddening times. As always, he splits his musings between spare verse and profuse prose poems; so too does he continue his custom of embellishing the volume with appropriated texts, dump ing them in a growing jumble at the end of the garden . . . misshapen pieces in a kind of extended jigsaw puzzle depicting a life spent wondering why. -- Publisher s website"

"Howie Good s Robots vs. Kung Fu is a collection of dark and delightful prose poems that subvert the real. Good is a close observer of the infinitesimal and the infinite. Within these pages you will encounter the surreal bumping up against the ordinary: honey-haired frauleins in Nazi bling vs the clock; trees on fire vs anti-crazy pills; globes crushed by tractors; beasts with seven heads vs sad little funerals in the rain, nagging black flies vs shopping, an angel with brilliant black wings vs school cafeterias. There s no denying there s some dark matter here: What s been called my heart serves also as a wine glass, a highway, a urinal, a grave. It would be ham-handed to offer up a general statement about the humour, sadness and absurdity in everyday life, at this point. -- Publisher s website"

"An Oneida Indian in foreign waters : the life of Chief Chapman Scanandoah, 1870-1953"
Authors: Laurence M. Hauptman.
Publisher: Syracuse University Press "Syracuse, New York"
"Chief Chapman Scanandoah (1870-1953) was a decorated Navy veteran who served in the Spanish-American War, a skilled mechanic, and a prize-winning agronomist who helped develop the Iroquois Village at the New York State Fair. He was also a historian, linguist, philosopher, and early leader of the Oneida land claims movement. However, his fame among the Oneida people and among many of his Hodin hs :ni' contemporaries today rests with his career as an inventor. In the era of Thomas Edison, Scanandoah challenged the stereotypes of the day that too often portrayed Native Americans as primitive, pre-technological, and removed from modernity. In An Oneida Indian in Foreign Waters, Hauptman draws from Scanandoah's own letters; his court, legislative, and congressional testimony; military records; and forty years of fieldwork experience to chronicle his remarkable life and understand the vital influence Scanandoah had on the fate of his people. Despite being away from his homeland for much of his life, Scanandoah fought tirelessly in federal courts to prevent the loss of the last remaining Oneida lands in New York State. Without Scanandoah and his extended Hanyoust family, Oneida existence in New York might have been permanently extinguished. Hauptman's biography not only illuminates the extraordinary life of Scanandoah but also sheds new light on the struggle to maintain tribal identity in the face of an increasingly diminished homeland."

Inspiring STEM minds : biographies and activities for elementary classrooms
Authors: Aaron D. Isabelle and Nataly Z. Valle.
Publisher: Sense Publishers Rotterdam
"The purpose of this book is to serve as a supplemental reference text for 21st century elementary classrooms. The primary objective is to help teachers inspire and engage their students in the STEM science, technology, engineering, and mathematics subjects. The push for incorporating STEM education in elementary school has become increasingly important, yet most educators and publishers have offered problem-based activities, without considering one of the most important pedagogical entry points to lesson planning -- the hook or the opening. Inspiring STEM Minds aims at providing teachers an effective, easy to use text that they can use to discuss specific mathematicians, engineers, inventors, and scientists although the individuals chosen for each section of the book are in no way an exhaustive or selective group that may characterize each discipline . This reference text is organized into four key sections, depicting the four disciplines that make up STEM education. Each section briefly gives historical background, as well as provides a problem or short activity designed to use everyday materials so that teachers can implement the activity in their classrooms. The classroom activities are directly related to each biography and have, we believe, great potential to engage students in the classroom. Each activity is also correlated to the National Standards, and we also supplement the activities with suggestions for interdisciplinary connections. We hope this book serves as a valuable resource for classroom teachers. -- Publisher s description"

Steep-banked, fast-moving, it offers the promise of fine fishing, and of something more, a possibility too fantastic to be true. When Abe and Dan, two widowers who have found solace in each other s company and a shared passion for fishing, hear rumors of the Creek, and what might be found there, the remedy to both their losses, they dismiss it as just another fish story. Soon, though, the men find themselves drawn into a tale as deep and old as the Reservoir. It s a tale of dark pacts, of long-buried secrets, and of a mysterious figure known as Der Fisher: the Fisherman. It will bring Abe and Dan face to face with all that they have lost, and with the price they must pay to regain it. -- Publisher s description"

"Land education : rethinking pedagogies of place from indigenous, postcolonial, and decolonizing perspectives"
Authors: "edited by Kate McCoy, Eve Tuck and Marcia McKenzie."
Publisher: Routledge "Abingdon, Oxon ; New York, NY"
"This book on Land Education offers critical analysis of the paths forward for education on Indigenous land. This analysis discusses the necessity of centring historical and current contexts of colonization in education on and in relation to land. In addition, contributors explore the intersections of environmentalism and Indigenous rights, in part inspired by the realisation that the specifics of geography and community matter for how environmental education can be engaged. This edited volume suggests how place-based pedagogies can respond to issues of colonialism and Indigenous sovereignty. Through dynamic new empirical and conceptual studies, international contributors examine settler colonialism, Indigenous cosmologies, Indigenous land rights, and language as key aspects of Land Education. The book invites readers to rethink 'pedagogies of place' from various Indigenous, postcolonial, and decolonizing perspectives. This book was originally published as a special issue of Environmental Education Research."

Mimlitsch-Gray s domestic artifacts suggest a coalescence of body and thing, conveying the mutability of the animate and inanimate and reflecting the intimacy between people and the objects they use. A spoon could be a lip, or a dangling twist of fabric, a vein.

Publisher: Riverdale Avenue Books "Riverdale, NY"
"Often pushed to the margins, queer, transgender and gender non-conforming survivors have been organizing in anti-violence work since the birth of the movement. Queering Sexual Violence: Radical Voices from Within the Anti-Violence Movement locates them at the center of the anti-violence movement and creates a space for their voices to be heard. Moving beyond dominant narratives and the traditional violence against women framework, the book is multi-gendered, multi-racial and multi-layered. This thirty-seven piece collection disrupts the mainstream conversations about sexual violence and connects them to disability justice, sex worker rights, healing justice, racial justice, gender self-determination, queer and trans liberation and prison industrial complex abolition through reflections, personal narrative, and strategies for resistance and healing. Where systems, institutions, families, communities and partners have failed them, this collection lifts them up, honors a multitude of lived experiences and shares the radical work that is being done outside mainstream anti-violence and the non-profit industrial complex. -- Publisher s description"

Fear and the shaping of early American societies
Authors: "edited by Lauric Henneton, L.H. Roper."
Publisher: Brill Leiden ; Boston
"Fear and the Shaping of Early American Societies is the first collection of essays to argue that fear permeated the colonial societies of 17th- and 18th-century America and to analyse its impact on the political decision-making processes from a variety of angles and locations. Indeed, the thirteen essays range from Canada to the Chesapeake, from New England to the Caribbean and from the Carolina Backcountry to Dutch Brazil. This volume assesses the typically American nature of fear factors and the responses they elicited in a transatlantic context. The essays further explore how the European colonists handled such challenges as Indian conspiracies, slave revolts, famine, popery and tyranny as well as werewolves and a dragon to build cohesive societies far from the metropolis. -- Provided by publisher"

What if we had to pick: ""The ocean or the stars. / A reputation in truth telling or a prize in diplomacy?"" (""Elements of Style""). At times rendered through the perception of a ""year-rounder"" residing in a tourist locale, its poems offer close-up portraits of individuals bounded by shorelines yet attuned to expansive horizons. Alert to how elemental symbols delight as well as unsettle us, the book as a whole weighs the ceaseless negotiation of our actions against the limits of temporality."

In Part I, this book presents recent neuropsychological research and its implications for existing theories of autism, selfhood, and identity, challenging common assumptions about the formation and structure of the autistic self and autisms relationship to neurotypicality. Through several case studies in Part II, the book explores the ways in which artists diagnosed with autism have constructed their identities through participation within art communities and cultures, and how the concept of self as story can be utilized to better understand the neurological differences between autism and typical cognition. -- Publisher s website"
