Zygmunt Bauman on Education in Liquid Modernity

by Shaun Best

Zygmunt Bauman on Education in Liquid Modernity evaluates the contribution that Bauman has made to education studies. It outlines the central themes within social analysis in Bauman’s writings, and examines how researchers have applied his key ideas to explore current theoretical issues. The book focuses on Bauman’s ideas in relation to the management and consumption of education, including topics such as student voice and individual identity; relationships and inclusive education. Identifying and discussing underpinning assumptions about Bauman’s work and its application to education, the book addresses the connection between his work and wider debates, providing a critical and clarifying re-examination of Bauman’s contribution to the role of education within solid, post and liquid modernity. This book will appeal to academics, researchers and postgraduate students of education theory and the sociology of education. It will be of great interest to readers seeking a critical appreciation and application of Bauman’s work to an educational context and Bauman scholars interested in the application of contemporary social theory to education and its role in identity formation in areas such as sex and relationships education.

Zur Aktualität von Douglas Crimp: Postmoderne und Queer Theory

by Lutz Hieber

Douglas Crimp war in den 1980er Jahren Mitherausgeber der Zeitschrift October. Er formulierte wesentliche Positionen in der Diskussion um den US-amerikanischen Postmodernismus. Dessen künstlerische Praktiken fasste Crimp als Wiederaufgreifen des unvollendet gebliebenen Projekts der historischen Avantgarden, die Diktatur und Krieg aus Europa vertrieben hatten. In der Aids-Krise, die in der zweiten Hälfte der 1980er Jahre virulent wurde, entstand künstlerischer Aktivismus. Damit änderte sich der Aktionsradius für Crimp, der sich auch in der politischen Bewegung engagierte.

Zoo Talk

by Sue Dale Tunnicliffe Patricia G. Patrick

Founded on the premise that zoos are 'bilingual'--that the zoo, in the shape of its staff and exhibits, and its visitors speak distinct languages--this enlightening analysis of the informal learning that occurs in zoos examines the 'speech' of exhibits and staff as well as the discourse of visitors beginning in the earliest years. Using real-life conversations among visitors as a basis for discussion, the authors interrogate children's responses to the exhibits and by doing so develop an 'informal learning model' and a 'zoo knowledge model' that prompts suggestions for activities that classroom educators can use before, during, and after a zoo visit. Their analysis of the 'visitor voice' informs creative suggestions for how to enhance the educational experiences of young patrons. By assessing visitors' entry knowledge and their interpretations of the exhibits, the authors establish a baseline for zoos that helps them to refine their communication with visitors, for example in expanding knowledge of issues concerning biodiversity and biological conservation. The book includes practical advice for zoo and classroom educators about positive ways to prepare for zoo visits, engaging activities during visits, and follow-up work that maximizes the pedagogical benefits. It also reflects on the interplay between the developing role of zoos as facilitators of learning, and the ways in which zoos help visitors assimilate the knowledge on offer. In addition to being essential reading for educators in zoos and in the classroom, this volume is full of insights with much broader contextual relevance for getting the most out of museum visits and field trips in general.

The Zoo at the Edge of the World

by Sam Nielson Eric Kahn Gale

"A killer jaguar, a zoo on a pyramid, a boy with a stutter who can talk to animals--this powerhouse novel doesn't only tread the line between fantasy, action/adventure, and historical fiction, it dances on that line with wild abandon.

Zondervan NIV Atlas of the Bible

by Carl G. Rasmussen

For quick reference and detailed study, the Zondervan NIV Atlas of the Bible is the most comprehensive Bible atlas available. The Geographical section presents the physical geography of the lands of the biblical word, from Egypt to Mesopotamia. The Israel/Jordan region especially is discussed in depth. The HISTORICAL SECTION presents in detail the flow of biblical history in its geographical context and shows how geography influenced the course of biblical history. A separate section on JERUSALEM traces the history and development of the city that is at the center of much of biblical history. THE DISCIPLINES OF HISTORICAL GEOGRAPHY shows the reader how the actual sites of ancient cities are rediscovered--an often complex process that sirs the imagination with the excitement of highly specialized detective work. An outstanding feature is the GAZETTEER. This is an exhaustive place-name index that gives the exact geographical location for each name with the pages and maps on which the name is found in the Atlas.

Zondervan Dictionary of Biblical Imagery

by John A. Beck

Biblical authors seized imagery drawn from everyday life and redeployed it in the service of divine revelation. But today’s readers are not familiar with many of these once-common illustrations. The distance in time, place, and culture between the Bible’s first recipients and people today often mutes the rhetorical impact of such images. Students of the Bible need someone to explain both the meaning and significance of the imagery found in the biblical text. The Zondervan Dictionary of Biblical Imagery provides the kind of assistance today’s readers need. Entries explain images that correspond to a cultural artifact from the biblical world (such as arrow or sandal), a component of natural history (such as fox or fig tree), a named place (such as Mount Sinai or Nazareth), or a component of the Promised Land’s physical geography (such as mountain or wilderness) Each entry contains a description of the element or image, examples of how the image is used in the biblical text, and appropriate full-color photographs and maps that further illustrate the ideas presented. Students of Scripture will find the Zodervan Dictionary of Biblical Imagery a fascinating and inspiring portal to the biblical world.

Zombie History: Lies About Our Past that Refuse to Die

by Peter Charles Hoffer

Fake history is not a harmless mistake of fact or interpretation. It is a mistake that conceals prejudice; a mistake that discriminates against certain kinds of people; a mistake held despite a preponderance of evidence; a mistake that harms us. Fake history is like the Zombies we see in mass media, for the fake fact, like the fictional Zombie, lives by turning real events and people into monstrous perversions of fact and interpretation. Its pervasiveness reveals that prejudice remains its chief appeal to those who believe it. Its effect is insidious, because we cannot or will not destroy those mischievous lies. Zombie history is almost impossible to kill. Some Zombie history was and is political, a genre of what Hannah Arendt called “organizational lying” about the past. Its makers designed the Zombie to create a basis in the false past for particular discriminatory policies. Other history Zombies are cultural. They encapsulate and empower prejudice and stereotyping. Still other popular history Zombies do not look disfigured, but like Zombies walk among us without our realizing how devastating their impact can be. Zombie History argues that, whatever their purpose, whatever the venue in which they appear, history Zombies undermine the very foundations of disinterested study of the past.

The odd thing was that they were nearly identical in appearance: blond, beautiful, and deathly pale. But Hannah wants desperately to fit in -- regardless of what her friend Lukas is telling her: If she doesn't watch her back, she's going to be blond and popular and dead, just like all the other zombies in this town...
