Описание: Focuses on the kinds of rhetorical agency that are enabled by the linkage of queer theory to the radical practises of queer activists.The 1980s and 1990s were marked by dramatic upheavals and groundbreaking shifts in both queer activism and queer theory in the United States. Indeed, it was not until the late 1980s that the word "queer" - as a newly reclaimed signifier of proud, confrontational sexual identity - could be linked meaningfully with either activism or theory. Queer Unfixed focuses on the kinds of rhetorical agency that are enabled by the linkage of queer theory to the radical practises of queer activists.Erin Rand studies the queer community's responses to the oppressive, frightening, and violent conditions facing gay groups in the 1980s and 1990s. Many of those responses were angry and militant in nature, with the formation of groups such as the Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC), AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP), Sex Panic!, Queer Nation, the Pink Panthers, the Lesbian Avengers, and many others. Activism was not intended merely to promote acceptance or tolerance, but to reclaim loudly and forcefully the rights to safety and humanity and to forge identity and strength from victimisation.But the "changing reality" facing gay communities was not limited to AIDS, homophobia, and anti-gay violence. It also included the sudden proliferation and popularity of academic work that questioned not only categories of gendered and sexual identity, but also the relationships of these categories to political action, liberalism, history, and truth. In short, as queer activists were mobilising in the streets in the 1980s and 1990s, queer theorists were producing a similar foment in the halls and publications of academia. The relationship between queer activism and theory was by no means self-evident and natural though.This study takes as its primary object the linkage of queer theory in the acaddemy with street-level queer activism, and seeks to understand and reformulate rhetorical agency through this strategic conjuncture. By examining the kinds of queer activist discourses taken up by queer theorists - as well as those they refute or ignore - Rand seeks to defie the specific kinds of opportunities and constraints that shape the contours of queer agency in activist and academic contexts, opposing the common practise of defining queerness in terms of simple resistance and instead positing queerness as an economy of ambiguity from which agency emerges.

Описание: If there is one thing that describes the trajectory of American education, it is this: more high-stakes testing. In the United States, the debates surrounding this trajectory can be so fierce that it feels like we are in uncharted waters. As Christopher Bjork reminds us in this study, however, we are not the first to make testing so central to education: Japan has been doing it for decades. Drawing on Japan's experiences with testing, overtesting, and recent reforms to relax educational pressures, he sheds light on the best path forward for US schools.
Bjork asks a variety of important questions related to testing and reform: Does testing overburden students? Does it impede innovation and encourage conformity? Can a system anchored by examination be reshaped to nurture creativity and curiosity? How should any reforms be implemented by teachers? Each chapter explores questions like these with careful attention to the actual effects policies have had on schools in Japan and other Asian settings, and each draws direct parallels to issues that US schools currently face. Offering a wake-up call for American education, Bjork ultimately cautions that the accountability-driven practice of standardized testing might very well exacerbate the precise problems it is trying to solve.
