A Little F'd Up by Julie Zeilinger Book Summary:

Young women today have a bad reputation, and for good reason: They’re sexting their classmates, they spend more time on FaceBook than they do in class, and their appetite for material possessions and reality TV is matched only by their overwhelming apathy about important social and political issues. Right? Wrong. FBomb blog creator Julie Zeilinger debunks these (and other) myths about modern youth in A Little F’d Up, the first book about feminism for young women in their teens and twenties to actually be written by one of their peers. In this accessible handbook, Zeilinger takes a critical, honest, and humorous look at where young feminists are as a generation, and where they’re going—and she does so from the perspective of someone who’s in the trenches right alongside her readers. Fun, funny, and engaging, A Little F’d Up is a must-read for the growing number of intelligent, informed young women out there who are ready to start finding their voice—and changing the world.

Transmedia Storytelling and the New Era of Media Convergence in Higher Education by Stavroula Kalogeras Book Summary:

Stories, whether they are fact or fiction, popular or not, are a proven method of pedagogy. In the age of media convergence and with the advancement of technology, stories have morphed into new forms; however, their core purpose remains the same, which is to pass on knowledge and information. The internet, with its inherent interactivity, and story, with its inherent capacity to engage, can lead to innovative and transformative learning experiences in media-rich environments. This book focuses on web-based Transmedia Storytelling Edutainment (TmSE) as an andragogical practice in higher education. Story is at the forefront of this investigation because narrative is the basis for developing entertainment media franchise that can be incorporated into pedagogical practice. The propulsion of this analysis consists of practice-based research through narrative inquiry and an e-module case study presented on multimedia storytelling in the classroom. A Transmedia Storytelling Framework is provided for creating screenplays for cross-media projects and for analyzing their appropriateness in education. Additionally, a hypertext screenplay, which allowed students to dig deeper into the story word and to build more knowledge, is evaluated for its use in higher education. Since screenplays are by nature writing for the screen, it is believed that the more visual the input, the more likely it is to be memorized and recalled. A link to The Goddess Within screenplay is available for download on the right hand side of this page.

Who's the Fairest of Them All? by Stephen Moore Book Summary:

President Obama has declared that the standard by which all policies and policy outcomes are judged is fairness. He declared in 2011 that "we've sought to ensure that every citizen can count on some basic measure of security. We do this because we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us, at any moment, might face hard times, might face bad luck, might face a crippling illness or a layoff." And that, he says, is why we have a social safety net. He says that returning to a standard of fairness where anyone can get ahead through hard work is the "issue of our time." And perhaps it is. This book explores what it means for our economic system and our economic results to be "fair." Does it mean that everyone has a fair shot? Does it mean that everyone gets the same amount? Does it mean the government can assert the authority to forcibly take from the successful and give to the poor? Is government supposed to be Robin Hood determining who gets what? Or should the market decide that? The surprising answer: nations with free market systems that allow people to get ahead based on their own merit and achievement are the fairest of them all.

The Fairest of Them All by Maria Tatar Book Summary:

We think we know the story of Snow White from Disney and the Brothers Grimm. But acclaimed folklorist Maria Tatar reveals dazzling variations from across the globe. The story of the rivalry between a beautiful, innocent girl and her equally beautiful and cruel mother has been endlessly repeated and refashioned all over the world. In Switzerland you might hear about seven dwarfs who shelter a girl, only to be murdered by robbers. In Armenia a mother orders her husband to kill his daughter because the moon has declared her “the most beautiful of all.” The Brothers Grimm gave this story the name by which we know it best, and in 1937 Walt Disney sweetened their somber version to make the first feature-length, animated fairy tale, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Since then the Disney film has become our cultural touchstone—the innocent heroine, her evil stepmother, the envy that divides them, and a romantic rescue from domestic drudgery and maternal persecution. But, as every fan of the story knows, there is more to Snow White than that. The magic mirror, the poisoned apple, the catatonic sleep, and the strange scene of revivification are important elements in the phantasmagoria of the Snow White universe. Maria Tatar, an acclaimed folklorist and translator, brings to life a global melodrama of mother-daughter rivalries that play out across countries and cultures.

Fairy Tale Romance Collection by Melanie Dickerson Book Summary:

Romance, intrigue, and danger abound in this five-book bind-up of Melanie Dickerson’s bestselling fairy-tale retellings. The Healer’s Apprentice: Rose has been appointed as a healer’s apprentice at Hagenheim Castle, and when Lord Hamlin—the future duke—is injured, it is Rose who tends to him. As she works to heal his wound, she begins to fall in love, and wonders if he feels the same. But Lord Hamlin is betrothed to a mysterious young woman in hiding. As Rose’s life spins toward confusion, she must take the first steps on a journey to discover her own destiny. The Merchant’s Daughter: Annabel is trapped in indentured servitude to Lord Ranulf, a recluse who is rumored to be both terrifying and beastly. She soon finds he is actually very kind and caring, and the two strike up a friendship that could soon become more. Then Annabel becomes involved in a situation that could possibly lead to Ranulf’s demise. The Fairest Beauty: Sophie desperately wants to get away from her stepmother’s jealousy, and receives her chance when Gabe arrives from Hagenheim Castle to rescue her, claiming she is betrothed to his older brother. Though romance is impossible--she is his brother’s future wife, and Gabe himself is betrothed to someone else--the pair flee to the Cottage of the Seven to find help. Before long both must not only protect each other from the dangers around them, they must also protect their hearts. The Captive Maiden: When Gisela learns the duke’s son, Valten--the boy she has daydreamed about for years--is throwing a ball in hopes of finding a wife, she vows to find a way to attend, even if it’s only for a taste of a life she’ll never have. To her surprise, she catches Valten’s eye. Though he is rough around the edges, Gisela finds Valten is everything she hoped he would be. But other forces are bent on keeping the two from falling further in love, putting Gisela in more danger than she ever imagined. The Princess Spy: Margaretha has always been a romantic, and hopes her newest suitor, Lord Claybrook, is destined to be her one true love. But then an injured man is brought to Hagenheim Castle, claiming to be an English lord who was attacked by Claybrook and left for dead. And only Margaretha--one of the few who speaks his language--understands the wild story. It is up to her to save her father, Colin, and Hagenheim itself from Claybrook’s wicked plot.

Éthique à Nicomaque by Aristote Book Summary:

Texte intégral révisé suivi d'une biographie d'Aristote. L'"Éthique à Nicomaque", composé de dix livres, est l'un des principaux ouvrages exposant la philosophie morale d'Aristote, laquelle demeure en substance la plus significative expression de la morale grecque. Nicomaque, fils d'Aristote, lui donne son nom en tant que premier éditeur des manuscrits. Critiquant la conception platonicienne des Idées, qui préconise le "bien en soi", Aristote traite ici de ce qui doit selon lui guider l'homme dans toutes ses actions, à savoir le bonheur, sens ultime de la vie humaine. Le bonheur, dit-il, est l'exercice de cette activité propre à l'homme qu'est l'usage du "logos" (la raison, l'intelligence), mais sans toutefois exclure la jouissance des plaisirs sensibles. Sur cette base, il développe une théorie des vertus humaines qu'il divise en vertus dianoétiques, relevant de la partie intellectuelle de l'âme, et vertus éthiques, relevant plus du caractère et des sentiments. La vertu aristotélicienne, caractérisée par un juste milieu entre les passions et facultés opposées de l'âme, concilie ainsi tout à la fois des exigences spiritualistes et eudémonistes. Le philosophe considère aussi la vertu comme un fait composé de deux éléments: l'un volontaire, déterminant le but, l'autre intellectuel, donnant les moyens pour atteindre ce but. Le livre 3 est consacré à définir ce qu'il y a de volontaire et d'involontaire dans l'action de l'homme, rejetant la thèse selon laquelle "personne n'est volontairement mauvais" et concluant que la vertu comme le vice résident en notre seul pouvoir. Dans les livres 4, 5 et 6, il décrit des vertus éthiques particulières comme la douceur, la franchise, l'urbanité, la pudeur, le courage, etc., examinant particulièrement la justice et l'équité, puis étudie les vertus dianoéthiques, au nombre de cinq: la science, l'art, la prudence, l'intellect et la sagesse. Le livre 7 traite de l'intempérance et du plaisir, les livres 8 et 9 de l'amitié et de l'amour, désignés sous le même nom. Le livre 10 reprend enfin le problème du rapport entre le plaisir et la vertu, et conclut que le plaisir procède d'une perfection de l'acte, survenant "comme la beauté pour qui est dans la fleur de l'âge". Le bonheur suprême réside dans la pure contemplation de la vérité éternelle. L'"Éthique à Nicomaque" est une continuelle oscillation entre l'eudémonisme humaniste et l'intellectualisme éthique.

Performing Migrancy and Mobility in Africa by Mark Fleishman Book Summary:

Performing Migrancy and Mobility in Africa focuses on a body of performance work, the work of Magnet Theatre in particular but also work by other artists in Cape Town and other parts of the continent or the world, that engages with the Cape as a real or imagined node in a complex system of migration and mobility. Located at the foot of the African continent, lodged between two oceans at the intersection of many of the earth's major shipping lanes, Cape Town is a stage for a powerful mixing of cultures and peoples and has been an important node in a network of flows, circuits of movement and exchange. The performance works studied here attempt to get to grips with what it feels like to be on the move and in the spaces in-between that characterises the lives, now and for centuries before, of multiple peoples who move around and pass through places like the Cape. The contributors are a broad range of mostly African authors from various parts of the continent and as such the book offers an insight into new thinking and new approaches from an emerging and important location.

Say and Seal (Complete) by Susan Warner Book Summary:

The street was broad, with sidewalks, and wide grass-grown borders, and a spacious track of wheels and horses' feet in the centre. Great elms, which the early settlers planted, waved their pendant branches over the peaceful highway, and gave shelter and nest-room to numerous orioles, killdeer, and robins; putting off their yellow leaves in the autumn, and bearing their winter weight of snow, in seeming quiet assurance that spring would make amends for all. So slept the early settlers in the churchyard! Along the street, at pleasant neighbourly intervals—not near enough to be crowded, nor far enough to be lonely—stood the houses,—comfortable, spacious, compact,—"with no nonsense about them." The Mong lay like a mere blue thread in the distance, its course often pointed out by the gaff of some little sloop that followed the bends of the river up toward Suckiaug. The low rolling shore was spotted with towns and spires: over all was spread the fairest blue sky and floating specks of white. Not many sounds were astir,—the robins whistled, thief-like, over the cherry-trees; the killdeer, from some high twig, sent forth his sweet clear note; and now and then a pair of wheels rolled softly along the smooth road: the rush of the wind filled up the pauses. Anybody who was down by the Mong might have heard the soft roll of his blue waters,—any one by the light-house might have heard the harsher dash of the salt waves. I might go on, and say that if anybody had been looking out of Mrs. Derrick's window he or she might have seen—what Mrs. Derrick really saw! For she was looking out of the window (or rather through the blind) at the critical moment that afternoon. It would be too much to say that she placed herself there on purpose,—let the reader suppose what he likes. At the time, then, that the village clock was striking four, when meditative cows were examining the length of their shadows, and all the geese were setting forth for their afternoon swim, a stranger opened Mrs. Derrick's little gate and walked in. Stretching out one hand to the dog in token of good fellowship, (a classical mind might have fancied him breaking the cake by whose help Quickear got past the lions,) he went up the walk, neither fast nor slow, ascended the steps, and gave what Mrs. Derrick called "considerable of a rap" at the door. That done, he faced about and looked at the far off blue Mong. Not more intently did he eye and read that fair river; not more swiftly did his thoughts pass from the Mong to things beyond human ken; than Mrs. Derrick eyed and read—his back, and suffered her ideas to roam into the far off regions of speculation. The light summer coat, the straw hat, were nothing uncommon; but the silk umbrella was too good for the coat—the gloves and boots altogether extravagant!

Language Vitality in South Africa by Anika Kehl Book Summary:

Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: 1,3, Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald (Anglistik/Amerikanistik), course: Hauptseminar: English in Contact, language: English, abstract: There are 24 languages which are regularly used by more than 44.8 million South Africans and almost 80 % of the South African population use one of the African languages at home. “The most commonly spoken home language is isiZulu, which is spoken by 23.8 % of the population, followed by isiXhosa (17.6 %) and Afrikaans (13.3 %)” Although English is the home language of only 8.2 % of the South African population it is still used as a lingua franca throughout the nation. The eleven official languages are used by 99% of the country’s population and those languages are all supposed to have equal rights. Belonging to these languages are English and Afrikaans, and nine other African languages: “Sepedi, Sesotho, Setswana, siSwati, Tshivenda, Xitsonga, isiNdebele, isiXhosa, and isiZulu”. There are also many other languages spoken in South Africa like for example Arabic, German, Greek, Hindi, Tamil, Hebrew and many more. Some European languages like French, German, and Portuguese are used in South Africa but they are not nearly as influential as English. The historical development of South Africa has brought the question of language forward. The country became aware of its unique language situation and the chances and problems which are connected to it. After Mandela many people developed a greater interest in smaller languages. The paper is going to explore the language vitality of some of the 11 official South African languages, dealing with the problem of language endangerment/death and language reviltalisation. It is going to be seen whether the multilingualism which is propagandized by the government is or can be realised in real life. Due to the lack of valid information for many of the smaller indigenous Afrcian langugeas the paper will mostly look at the situation of Afrikaans and English, only rarely concidering the other languages in much detail.

Candide, ou l'Optimisme by Voltaire Book Summary:

Le jeune Candide travaillait dans un château pour un baron, et avait pour maître Pangloss, qui professait une philosophie leibnizienne déformée et clamant qu’ils vivaient dans le meilleur des mondes possibles. Malheureusement pour le garçon, il est mis à la porte du château après un baiser volé et se retrouve sur la route, allant de mésaventure en mésaventure, mais s’accrochant néanmoins désespérément à cet optimisme appris. Ce célèbre conte philosophique et satirique de Voltaire fut publié en 1759 à Genève et est un court texte à la fois comique et génial dans son exploration de la philosophie, de la religion, des préjudices, et de la cruauté d’un optimisme aveugle. Il s’inscrit dans un siècle où les questions philosophiques sont au premier rang. Quand Voltaire écrit son "Candide", un débat sur le fatalisme et l’existence du Mal bat son plein, et l’optimisme leibnizien est beaucoup discuté. De plus, la guerre de Sept Ans vient de commencer et un tremblement de terre à ravagé Lisbonne, évènements qui ont tout deux beaucoup marqué Voltaire. De même, le philosophe français collaborait au projet de "L’Encyclopédie" de Diderot et d’Alembert, qui a été sanctionné par le Parlement de Paris. Tous ces éléments ont joué un rôle dans la production de conte. Voltaire (1694-1778), de son vrai nom François-Marie Arouet, était un philosophe, poète, historien et écrivain français du Siècle des Lumières. Parmi ses œuvres les plus connues, on peut compter : "Lettres philosophique" (1734), "Zadig ou la Destinée" (1748), "Candide ou l’Optimisme"» (1759), "Dictionnaire philosophique" (1764) et "L’Ingénue" (1767).
