Описание: Romanticism has often been associated with the mode of lyric, or otherwise confined within mainstream genres. As a result, we have neglected the sheer diversity and generic hybridity of a literature that ranged from the Gothic novel to the national tale, from monthly periodicals to fictionalized autobiography. In this volume leading scholars of the period explore the ways in which the Romantics developed genre from a taxonomical given into a cultural category, so as to make it the scene of an ongoing struggle between fixed norms and new initiatives. Focusing on non-canonical writers (such as Thelwall, Godwin and the novelists of the 1790s), or placing authors such as Wordsworth and Byron in a non-canonical context, these essays explore the psychic and social politics of genre from a variety of theoretical perspectives, while the introduction looks at how genre itself was rethought by Romantic criticism.
Описание: In recent times, the world has experienced the shifting and realignment of political, ideological and geographic borders everywhere. The emergence of new nation states alongside the growth of multinational economic unions, mobility and displacement of populations and products has changed the face of educational systems and theories. In the context of globalisation, the concepts of bordering and re-bordering invite us to contemplate the sometimes contradictory image of the state in its responsibilities to civil society while seeking its place in the global market. The effects of bordering and re-bordering have direct impact on education and its governance with ramifications for linguistic, cultural, sociological and philosophical frames of reference.The papers in this book reflect cutting edge research by top researchers as they grapple with the multi-faceted concerns of bordering and re-bordering in relation to education in the 21st century. The volume includes valuable contributions from key educational theorists, researchers and practitioners from Africa to the Middle East, Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Americas—educators who shared their recent investigations and practice at the triennial World Congress of the WCCES in Istanbul, Turkey. A focus of particular educational concerns in the Arab world creates a context in which to analyse recent events now termed the “Arab Spring.”This compelling and wide-ranging volume has been facilitated by the WCCES and provides new theory on bordering and re-bordering with comprehensive comparative assessment of educational implications of power politics in the face of the re-ordering, and re-bordering of our globalized world.
Описание: Autism is a rare and severe psychiatric disorder of childhood, with an onset before the age of two-and-a-half years. It is marked by severe difficulties in communicating and forming relationships with other people, in developing language, and in using abstract concepts. This volume brings together contributions from some of the leading researchers in the field of autism to consider some specific problem areas in current research. Each contributor brings expertise from a different field, providing a balanced view of the whole spectrum of research. The book covers four main areas of research: heritability, neurobiology, the psychological deficit in children with autism, and therapy.
Описание: An interdisciplinary look at changing family models in recent decades, Future Families draws from work in many areas including developmental psychology, sociology, cross-cultural scholarship, ethnic studies, history, legal studies, economics, and more.
Описание: Since its official release in 2011, Minecraft has sold over 48 million copies across all gaming platforms. The premise of Minecraft is simple: destroy, collect, build and interact in a world made entirely of colored cubes. Unlike Lego blocks or other construction toys, Minecraft's digital play space allows for virtually limitless creation without the cost and limitations of physical building materials. Developer Mojang's generous policies toward modification and other uses of their intellectual property also engender enthusiasm and creativity from fans who make music, art and animation inspired by the software. The first essays in this collection cover Minecraft's origins, describing its relationship to other video games and toys and examining the learning models implicit in its design. Later essays describe and theorize the various ways players interact with the software, which simultaneously presents them with structural constraints and limitless possibilities.
Описание: In this anthology, top scholars explain how the complex, evolving pattern of gender is constructed interpersonally, institutionally, and culturally, and challenges students to question how gender shapes their daily lives.
Описание: Writing begins before students even pick up a pencil, but there are many reasons to stop writing between the idea and the finished project. By helping students celebrate each stage of the writing process and applauding success, we help our students persevere through what can be an extended and challenging process.In this innovative book, Celebrating Writers, Ruth Ayres and Christi Overman discuss dozens of ways to respond, reflect, and rejoice along the journey to a finished project. This type of celebration nurtures students, makes them better writers, and helps them recognise that writing is a process filled with notable moments, not simply a result where publication is the only marker of success. From traveling notebooks to lunch-table writing, from author interviews with a writing partner to silent reflection, from swapping stories around a “campfire” to tweeting favorite lines, Ruth and Christi share dozens of fun and effective ways for you and your students to commemorate their progress as writers.

Описание: This book combines the experience of 225 experts on 900 pages. Scientists worldwide are currently overwhelmed by the ever-increasing number and diversity of genome projects. This handbook is your guide through the jungle of new methods and techniques available to analyse gene expression - the first to provide such a broad view of the measurement of mRNA and protein expression in vitro, in situ and even in vivo. Despite this broad approach, detail is sufficient for you to grasp the principles behind each method. In each case, the authors weigh up the advantages and disadvantages, paying particular attention to the automated, high-throughput processing demanded bhe biotech industry. Completely up to date, the book covers such ground-breaking methods such as DNA microarrays, serial analysis of gene expression, differential display, and identification of open reading frame expressed sequence tags. All the methods and necessary equipment are presented visually in more than 300 mainly colour illustrations to assist their step-by-step reproduction in your laboratory. Each chapter is rounded off with its own set of extensive references that provide access to detailed experimental protocols. In short, the bible of analysing gene expression.
Описание: Smartgeometry (SG) has had an enormous influence on the emerging architectural community interested in exploring creative computational methods for the design of buildings. An informal international network of practitioners and researchers, the group meets annually to experiment with new technologies and collaborate to develop digital design techniques. SG was founded in 2001 by London-based architects and friends Hugh Whitehead (Foster + Partners), J Parrish (Aecom) and Lars Hesselgren (PLP). At the time there were little in the way of parametric tools for architecture. SG was founded to encourage development, discussion and experimentation relating to new digital design environments that could be driven by design intent rather than based on construction specifications. The need for new ways of design thinking led to the parallel development of software GenerativeComponents which was tested in the early years of the annual workshops. In response to the needs of designers, the ecology of these design environments has diversified to include multiple software platforms, as well as innovative fabrication techniques and interactive environments. SG calls for a re-consideration of the design process, where the creation of computational mechanisms become an integral part of designing - not a task done prior to or separate from the process. From pencil to algorithm, the tools that architects use directly influence their creative process. New design tools and new design environments therefore mean a requisite re-thinking of what architecture is, and can be. Inside Smartgeometry examines and contextualizes the work of the SG community: the digital spaces, prototypes, and buildings designed using bespoke tools created in response to architectural ideas. From interactive crowd-sourcing tools to responsive agent-based systems to complex digitally fabricated structures, this book explores more than a decade of advances that have influenced both the practice of architecture and the theory that drives it. SG has grown from a handful of experts to an international network of designers who are helping to define design environments of the future. Founded by digital pioneers it creates the algorithmic designers of the future. This book can be seen as a retroactive manifesto for SG, celebrating the varied approaches to computational design explored by forward thinking practitioners and researchers. Through twenty-three original texts including reflections by the founders, and texts by Robert Aish, Martin Bechthold, Rob Woodbury, Chris Williams and Mark Burry, the book offers a critical state of the art of computational design for architecture. SG has been relevant to many international design and engineering offices and the book includes chapters by practitioners from offices such as Foster + Partners, Grimshaw, SOM, Design2Production, CASE, and Populous.
