Notes on water : an aqueous phenomenology
Authors: David Appelbaum.
Publisher: Monkfish Book Publishing Company Rhinebeck, New York
This poetical study of water ranges from classical myth and literature to modern physics and microbiology. Because water exists in three forms or phases-liquid, solid, and gas-each needs its own constellation of ideas. Its subtle movement is the hidden source of question, questioner, and the phenomenon of life. Its power is transformation, the unspoken theme of the book -- Provided by publisher.

Storytwisting : a guide to remixing and reinventing stories
Authors: Jeri Burns and Barry Marshall, the Storycrafters.
Publisher: Parkhurst Brothers Publishers Marion, Michigan
Storytwisting, Publisher Statement The oral storytelling tradition brings both tradition and creative innovation to the culture. In their new book, Storytwisting, award-winning storytellers Jeri Burns and Barry Marshall celebrate tradition and radical innovation in the creation and re-invention of stories. Intended both as a reader for the general public and especially as a toolkit for writers, teachers of language arts, and advanced students of creative writing, this collaboration between nationally-honored performers provides a system for discussion and study of “fracturing,” re-shaping, and re-imagining stories of all kinds. As such, it is a breath of fresh air as well as a carefully-conceived structure for cultural study, literary innovation, and lively fun in language arts study.

Principled resistance : how teachers resolve ethical dilemmas
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

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

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. --

Authors: Carol Goodman.
Publisher: Viking New York, NY
The day Japan bombs Pearl Harbor, four thirteen-year-olds converge at the Metropolitan Museum of Art where an eccentric curator is seeking four uncommonly brave souls to track down the hidden pages of the Kelmsbury Manuscript, an ancient book of Arthurian legends that lies scattered within the museum s collection, and which holds the key to preventing a second attack on American soil. When Madge, Joe, Kiku, and Walt agree to help, they have no idea that the Kelmsbury is already working its magic on them. But they begin to develop extraordinary powers and experience the feelings of King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, Morgan le Fay, and Lancelot: courage, friendship, love... and betrayal. Are they playing out a legend that s already been lived, over and over, across the ages? Or can the Metropolitans forge their own story? -- Publisher s website

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 ... --

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. The book concludes with a chapter detailing insightful policy recommendations for preventing future crises.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
