Investigating Adolescent Health Communication Book Description :

A comprehensive corpus analysis of adolescent health communication is long overdue – and this book provides it. We know comparatively little about the language adolescents use to articulate their health concerns, and discourse analysis of their choices can shed light on their attitudes towards and beliefs about health and illness. This book interrogates a two million word corpus of messages posted by adolescents to an online health forum. It adopts a mixed method corpus approach to health communication, combining both quantitative and qualitative techniques. Analysis in this way gives voice to an age group whose subjective experiences of illness have often been marginalized or simply overlooked in favour of the concerns of older populations.

Shaping Losses

  • Author : Julia Epstein
  • Publisher : University of Illinois Press
  • Release Date : 2001
  • Genre : History
  • Pages : 239
  • ISBN : 0252069498

Shaping Losses Book Description :

Shaping Losses explores how traumatic loss affects identity and how those who are shaped by loss give shape, in turn, to the empty place where something--relationships, family, culture--was and is no longer. Taking the example of the decimation of European Jewry during the Nazi era, Shaping Losses confronts the problem of transforming trauma into cultural memory. This eloquent volume examines how memoirs, films, photographs, art, and literature, as well as family conversations and personal remembrances, embody the impulse to preserve what is destroyed. The contributors -- all distinguished women scholars, most of them survivors or daughters of survivors--examine classic memorializations such as Claude Lanzmann's film Shoah and Roman Vishniac's photographs of prewar Jews as well as several less-well-known works. They also address ways in which children of survivors of the Holocaust--and of other catastrophic traumas--struggle with inherited or vicarious memory, striving to come to terms with losses that centrally define them although they experience them only indirectly. Shaping Losses considers the limitations of Holocaust representations and testimonies that capture shards of the experience but are necessarily selective and reductive. Contributors discuss artistic efforts to "preserve the rawness" of memory, to resist redemptive closure in Holocaust narratives and public memorials, and to prevent the Holocaust from being sealed in "the cold storage of history." The authors probe the nature of memory and of trauma, studying the use of language within and outside a traumatic context such as Auschwitz and pinpointing the qualities that make traumatic memory ineffable, untransmittable, and perhaps unreliable. Within the "haunted terrain of traumatized memory" that all Holocaust testimonies inhabit, the impulse to give form to emptiness--to shape loss--emerges as a necessary betrayal, a vital effort to bridge the gap between history and memory.

  • Publisher : Peter Lang
  • Release Date : 2010
  • Genre : Education
  • Pages : 236
  • ISBN : 1433105543

Fracturing Opportunity Book Description :

Fracturing Opportunity demonstrates a simple yet profound idea---that educational opportunity is learned. And if it is learned , then it can be taught and taught more equitably. This book brings sociocultural theories of learning and development to bear on the persistent problems of inequality in college access, and presents an innovative framework for understanding and addressing the historic inequities that plague educational opportunity. Through ethnographic documentation of Mexican migrants' educational experiences, the book moves beyond traditional inquiry on aspiration, academic preparation, and college matriculation to explore the deeper, more fundamental sense-making processes that mediate how students among the most vulnerable cultural communities in the United States engage in college going. This is an excellent text for educators and researchers interested in equal educational opportunity generally, Mexican migrant and Chicano education in particular, and scholars interested in applied critical sociocultural theory and critical ethnographic methods. "Grounded in a critical sociocultural theory of learning and development, this book uses rigorous ethnographic methods to improve our understanding of not only the forces that influence college-going for an under-examined population (i.e., Mexican migrant students), but also the most appropriate framework for understanding college-going more generally. By reframing college-going as literacy development and identifying the transformative learning opportunities that promote college-going for a population that faces multiple barriers to higher education, this book offers important insights for K-12 schools, higher education institutions, and pre-college outreach programs, as well as future research."---Laura W. Perna, Professor, Graduate School of Education, University of Pennsylvania "Fracturing Opportunity provides an important and fresh approach to understanding education as it could be for adolescent youth fr

St James and Goldstein at Yale Book Description :

I didn't know it then, but I know it now, that what I said to Harold was like crossing a Rubicon. I had declared myself, there was no turning back. I said what I said with feeling and to someone who up to that moment was like a god on Mt. Olympus. He became Harold St. James, secular savior and friend. I could talk to him. I didn't have to choose my words. I could be Izzy Goldstein. What will later become the legendary St. James-Goldstein duo at Yale begins on the day World War II breaks out in Europe. Harold St. James and Izzy Goldstein meet on the train to New Haven, Connecticut, and both learn that they will be working together in two different departments in the same building at Yale. Their oddball friendship becomes fodder for snide comments and campus newspaper articles. But it's a strong friendship that carries them through an initial anti-Semitism, Harold's marriage and his wife's premature death, the House Un-American Activities Committee, the Vietnam War, and the Black Panthers.

Ann Millan shares the story of how she helped her daughter, Robin, move past the many challenges of severe autism in Autism–Believe in the Future. Her first goal was simple; she wanted to stop the screaming, running, and self-injurious behaviors that her daughter exhibited. For ten years, Ann was told by professionals that she needed to accept Robin’s disabilities. Not one to give up in the face of adversity, Ann finally found quality professionals to help her. Ann knew education and therapies were Robin’s priority, but self-image and socialization became her focus. Ann also knew Robin’s inappropriate behaviors were unacceptable in society. Ann and her husband, Bob, became Robin’s case managers and Robin progressed beyond their wildest dreams. Today, Robin has two jobs, lives in her own condominium, drives her own car, and is a part of her community. This is her story! For more information, see: Autism is not a one-size-fits-all disability, so focusing on just one intervention did not lead Robin to successful adulthood. Many steps had to be taken along the way to get her successfully to her goal! Parents and autism professionals must work together, developing quality support and services that are cost-effective—so we can all believe in the future for our children.

I M Book Description :

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “In I.M., Isaac Mizrahi puts his life to paper with the same mix of spirit and wryness as the designs he popularized.” —Vanity Fair Isaac Mizrahi is sui generis: designer, cabaret performer, talk-show host, a TV celebrity. Yet ever since he shot to fame in the late 1980s, the private Isaac Mizrahi has remained under wraps. Until now. In I.M., Isaac Mizrahi offers a poignant, candid, and touching look back on his life so far. Growing up gay in a sheltered Syrian Jewish Orthodox family, Isaac had unique talents that ultimately drew him into fashion and later into celebrity circles that read like a who’s who of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries: Richard Avedon, Audrey Hepburn, Anna Wintour, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Meryl Streep, and Oprah Winfrey, to name only a few. In his elegant memoir, Isaac delves into his lifelong battles with weight, insomnia, and depression. He tells what it was like to be an out gay man in a homophobic age and to witness the ravaging effects of the AIDS epidemic. Brimming with intimate details and inimitable wit, Isaac's narrative reveals not just the glamour of his years, but the grit beneath the glitz. Rich with memorable stories from in and out of the spotlight, I.M. illuminates deep emotional truths.
