How New Philanthropy Advocates for the Corporate Reform of Education
Edited by Gregory Castle, Alex Davis and Lee Jenkins
The Global Literary Modernisms series provides a platform for literary scholarship on modernism across genres and geographies. The concept of the global today carries with it new ideas about time and historical development, as well as new theories about national literary traditions and new models of social belonging that extend beyond national borders. Without sacrificing our interest in national traditions, we invite studies that link those traditions to more extensive global and transnational contexts. The series also invites studies that reconsider the temporalities and formal and aesthetic praxes of modernism—not only its historical development, but the peculiar rhythms and pacing of its narratives, its dramatic literatures, its poetry, its song. While respecting the contemporary elasticity of the term, this series understands modernism not simply as a synonym for the ‘modern’ but as a movement that responds to the modern wherever it finds it.
We invite English-language submissions on all aspects of literary modernism. Proposals are invited for monographs and edited volumes that engage transnational and postcolonial, canonical and marginal modernisms, and the legacies of modernism. We welcome single- and multiple-author studies from a variety of approaches and frameworks, literary-historical and/or theoretical.
A Toolkit for Creating a Winning Strategy
Betteke vanRuler and Frank Körver
Strategic development is one of the most daunting challenges that faces any professional, no matter the field. After all, stakes are high. Developing effective strategies can put you on the path to becoming a trusted advisor and a valued employee. The communication strategy framework introduced in this handbook has been designed to help professionals make targeted choices toward strategic communication. Taking an iterative approach and continually reflecting on whether your choices remain congruent enables you to continually adapt to changing circumstances while staying in command. Linear planning models are ineffective. Quick strategy development can revolutionize the communication function and strengthen the relationship amongst members of a professional team. Linking communication and business strategy is the number one challenge for today’s communication practitioners.
Many CEOs still view the communication department as no more than as a tactical entity providing outreach but little else. It is time to fundamentally rethink how strategic communication is developed and start using modern tools to do this. The communication strategy framework facilitates the communication professional to forcefully and efficiently make the right choices. It compels individuals to think about how communication can contribute to achieving the organization or client’s goals. As a result, it provides a clear picture of your communication strategy in one page by putting superfluous details aside and concentrating on the essentials. The communication strategy framework has proven to be an instant eye-opener for clients and other stakeholders. A best-seller amongst professionals in the Netherlands, it is available for the first time in English. This step-by-step guide to creating strategic communication will help communicators of all types- from professionals and clients to students and teachers!
Métamorphoses des rôles et statuts par les écritures féminines offre une analyse de la façon dont les romans féminins et la littérature non romanesque défient le statut légal et les rôles sociaux imposés aux citoyennes féminines françaises et francophones, à travers les institutions et les pratiques juridiques, depuis le XVIII ème siècle jusqu’au XX ème siècle. Pour présenter ces défis, Cécile Gouard se concentre sur la détermination des femmes à rechercher l’égalité des droits civiques, en dénonçant les effets du code napoléonien qui les a réduites au statut légal de mineures. Dr Gouard affirme que les romancières féminines, en particulier, ont dénoncé les inégalités sociales et familiales afin de permettre à toutes les femmes l’accès aux études supérieures et à des carrières jusqu’alors réservées aux hommes. Ce faisant, ces écrivaines ont défié les modèles d’éducation qui, pendant longtemps, avaient privilégié les ordres patriarcaux. Ces femmes ont ainsi lutté contre les lois archaïques qui interdisaient contraception et avortement. Dr Gouard montre comment ces écrivaines ont tenté de détruire le mythe bourgeois du couple conjugal, en appelant à des alliances consensuelles qui confèrent aux femmes une pleine égalité. Au final, à travers ces textes qui appellent à la fin du patriarcat et des modèles de féminité préjudiciables, l’auteure ouvre une perspective nouvelle sur les lois et statuts actuels.
Critical Animal Pedagogy and Teaching Against Speciesism
Edited by Anthony J. Nocella, Carolyn Drew, Amber E. George, Sinem Ketenci, John Lupinacci, Ian Purdy and Joe Leeson-Schatz
Education for Total Liberation: Critical Animal Pedagogy and Teaching Against Specisim is an edited collection of essays from the leaders in the field of critical animal pedagogy (CAP). CAP emerges from activist educators teaching critical animal studies and is rooted in critical theory as well as the animal advocacy movement. Critical Animal Studies (CAS) argues for an interdisciplinary approach to understanding our relationships with nonhuman animals. CAS challenges two specific fields of theory: (1) animal studies, rooted in vivisection and testing on animals in the hard sciences and (2) human-animal studies, which reinforces a socially constructed binary between humans and animals and adopts abstract theoretical approaches. In contrast, CAS takes a progressive and committed approach to scholarship and sees the exploitation of nonhuman animals as interrelated with oppression of humans based on class, gender, racism. CAS promotes the liberation of all animals and challenges all systems of domination. Education for Total Liberation is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate level readers (and beyond) who wish to learn from examples of radical pedagogical projects shaped by CAS and Critical Pedagogy. Contributing to this collection are Anne Bell, Anita de Melo, Carolyn Drew, Amber E. George, Karin Gunnarsson Dinker, John Lupinacci, Anthony J. Nocella II, Sean Parson, Helena Pederson, Ian Purdy, Constance Russell, JL Schatz, William E. Shanahan III, Meneka Thirukkumaran, and Richard J, White.
Approaches, Interventions and Histories
Edited by Tiffany N. Florvil and Vanessa D. Plumly
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.
