The Permanent Campaign
33,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From the social media-based 2008 Obama election campaign to the civic protest and political revolutions of the 2011 Arab Spring, the past few years have been marked by a widespread and complex shift in the political landscape, as the rise of participatory platforms - such as YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and blogs - have multiplied the venues for political communication and activism.This book explores the emergence of a permanent campaign - the need for constant readiness - on networked communication platforms, focusing on political moments, crises and elections in Canada, the U.S.A., and Australia. The book chapters investigate the proliferation of new political actors and communicators: political bloggers, advocacy groups, diverse publics, and political party staff as they engage in political maneuvers across participatory platforms. With in-depth analyses of some of the most well-known participatory media today, this book offers a critical assessment of the constant efforts at managing the plurality of voices that characterize contemporary politics.

Digital Learning Lives

Today's world is in turmoil. Economic crises are bringing countries to the brink of ruin, and old models are being questioned. The same sense of crisis also exists in contemporary education, and there is a need to explore new educational models. Digital Learning Lives: Trajectories, Literacies, and Schooling is a contribution in this direction. This book explores the importance of the adoption of digital technologies by contemporary education systems. Partly a synthesis of findings from projects carried out in Norway by the author over the past 15 years, the data have been extended to raise key questions about the effectiveness of current education strategies for the Facebook and YouTube generation. Along the way, a promising approach for future developments in education is introduced that embraces the engagement of digital media - what Ola Erstad terms 'learning lives'. Use of digital media in schools and in everyday culture becomes the catalyst for exploring learning as life-deep (studying identity processes), life-wide (studying learners across contexts), and life-long (studying learning as trajectories and timescales). The book is targeted toward courses on digital learning, educational change, school development, and formal-informal learning.

This study traces how the art historian Aby Warburg, the writer W. G. Sebald, and the artist Gerhard Richter explore collective cultural memory embedded in contemporary visual symbols. The work establishes previously unnoted intellectual connections between their respective visual memory archives and the intellectual traditions that inform them. Diagnosing and describing how the reinvention of the album and the atlas as organizational models of narrative and pictorial presentation coincide with the contemporary fascination with social networks supplied by platforms such as Facebook, this study argues that the hybridity of the models allows the association of disparate fi elds of knowledge and memory that speaks to contemporary audiences and explains the persistent fascination with the memory archives at hand.In examining the presence of the past as mediated in images, and in collecting in particular those images that bespeak a silent history of Germany and Europe, Warburg, Sebald, and Richter all engage in rescuing projects in response to acute "memory crises," a concept coined by Richard Terdiman to designate historic circumstances that are particularly apt to generate the theorization and enactment of mnemonic efforts. This concept becomes the theoretical prism for understanding the preoccupation with memory that marks the work of Warburg, Sebald, and Richter, and an analysis that identifi es their memory projects as exemplary, symptomatic, and diagnostic at the same time.

Behold The Lilies
22,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Behold the Lilies draws from the riches of the author's long-standing work in the theology of nature and ecological spirituality, especially from his classic historical study, The Travail of Nature (1985), and from his Franciscan exploration in Christian spirituality, Before Nature (2014). In this new volume, Santmire maintains that those who would follow Jesus are mandated not just to care for the earth and all its creatures but also to contemplate the beauties of the whole creation, beginning with ''the lilies of the field.'' His first-person reflections range from ''Scything with God'' to ''Rediscovering Saint Francis in Stone,'' from ''Taking a Plunge in the Niagara River'' to ''Pondering the Darkness of Nature.'' Behold the Lilies offers brief spiritual reflections that can be read in any order, over a period of time. This accessible primer will be welcomed not only by those who have already identified themselves with the way of Jesus but also by others who are searching for a contemplative spirituality attuned to global ecological and justice issues. ''What a lovely small book, and what a powerful antidote to Twitter, Facebook, and all the rest. To be immersed in the world around us is one of the greatest of gifts!'' --Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth ''H. Paul Santmire's¿Behold the Lilies¿is shocking theology. In a day when theology is responding to crises on every side, up and down, he commands us (as Jesus did) to¿look¿at creation and see its beauty, God's beauty, in nature. The power of beauty to move us is greater than the power of worry, fear, and rage at injustice to draw us into a more graceful relation to God, nature, and each other. Santmire's beautiful meditations are among the beauties through which we are brought into a better state as good creatures.'' --Robert Cummings Neville, Professor of Philosophy, Religion, and Theology, Boston University; author of¿Seasons of the Christian Life ''By contemplating the lilies as Jesus would ask us to, our creator God shines through the beauty of nature. Veteran theologian of nature H. Paul Santmire evokes in his reader wonder, awe, and grace.'' --Ted Peters, coeditor,¿Theology and Science and¿Nurture in Time and Eternity ''One of the pioneers of Christian eco-theology, H. Paul Santmire has blessed us with a delightful new book. As the subtitle indicates, it is full of wise reflections on following Jesus and contemplating the natural world. How do we take seriously the summons to behold the world around us? Paul shows us how. Insightful, honest, hope-filled, and engagingly written. I highly recommend it.'' --Steven Bouma-Prediger, author of For the Beauty of the Earth: A Christian Vision for Creation Care H. Paul Santmire has been a pioneer in the field of ecological theology and spirituality. His works include Brother Earth (1970), The Travail of Nature (1985), Nature Reborn (2000), Ritualizing Nature (2008), and Before Nature (2014

Disability Rights Advocacy Online
53,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Disability rights advocates in the United Kingdom and the United States recently embraced new media technologies in unexpected and innovative ways. This book sheds light on this process of renewal and asks whether the digitalisation of disability rights advocacy can help re-configure political participation into a more inclusive experience for disabled Internet users, enhancing their stakes in democratic citizenship. Through the examination of social media content, Web link analysis, and interviews with leading figures in grassroots groups on both sides of the Atlantic, Filippo Trevisan reveals the profound impact that the Internet has had on disability advocacy in the wake of the austerity agenda that followed the 2008 global financial crisis. In Britain, a new, tech-savvy generation of young disabled self-advocates has emerged from this process. The role of social media platforms such as Facebook in helping politically inexperienced users make sense of complex policy changes through the use of personal stories is discussed also. In addition, this book explains why British disability advocates adopted more innovative and participatory strategies compared to their American counterparts when faced with similar policy crises. This book reviews the implications of this unexpected digital transformation for the structure of the disability rights movement, its leadership, and the opportunity for disabled citizens to participate fully in democratic politics vis-à-vis persisting Web access and accessibility barriers. An original perspective on the relationship between disability and the Internet, and an indispensable read for scholars wishing to contextualize and enrich their knowledge on digital disability rights campaigns vis-à-visthe broader ecology of policymaking.
