Documentary film festivals : Transformative learning, community building & solidarity
Roy, Carole, 1954-
Rotterdam : Sense Publishers, 2016
Documentary film festivals do more than provide a venue for watching films: they have the potential to foster critical thinking, especially toward mainstream media. The film festivals discussed in this book also help build a sense of community locally, as well as promote solidarity with people involved in struggles for social justice and ecological integrity around the world. Documentaries by independent filmmakers reveal stories ignored by mass media, stories at times tragic but more often than not inspiring. It can be said that documentary film festivals create a public space for citizens to listen together and to become informed on current issues in greater depth than newscast bulletins offer. This book shows how documentary films create a liminal space with transformative potential, a space that challenges assumptions, supports the development of empathy, and often stimulates engagement and action. In viewing documentaries together and engaging in critical reflection and dialogue, citizens can imagine alternative possibilities and consider solutions. Documentary Film Festivals: Transformative Learning, Community Building & Solidarity offers the voices of attendees, sponsors, and organizers who shared their thoughts and experiences of documentary film festivals and the impact on their views and engagement. Activists and organizers of various social movements who are seeking ways to inform and inspire will see evidence in this text that documentary film festivals are a means of drawing diverse audiences, engaging differences and respectfully promoting hope and preferred visions of the future. Documentary Film Festivals: Transformative Learning, Community Building & Solidarity includes concrete examples of creative and courageous struggles that have led to victories often ignored by the media. This book is bound to inspire.

The book of hope
Musturi, Tommi, 1975-
Seattle, Washington : Fantagraphics Books Inc., [2015]
In a way that only the medium of comics can, The Book of Hope slows the reader down to the rhythms of the silent life of a retired couple living in a rural countryside. Behind the static, routine moments of everyday life something bigger takes shape. A flash of encroaching death starts to consume the husband, leading to visions and questions. This graphic novel from cartoonist Tommi Musturi is a thoughtful exploration of the human condition, and the series of mostly quotidian moments that make up most of our lives. The strong presence of silence and nature reflect the arctic exotica of Musturi's native Finland, but with a relatability, eloquence, and economy that will remind American readers of Chris Ware's Jimmy Corrigan. The Book of Hope is a humane book filled with timeless humor and life itself.

At the end of the street in the shadow : Orson Welles and the city
Gear, Matthew Asprey
London : Wallflower Press, [2016]
The films of Orson Welles inhabit the spaces of cities--from America's industrializing midlandto its noirish borderlands, from Europe's medieval fortresses to its Kafkaesque labyrinths and postwar rubblescapes. His movies take us through dark streets to confront nightmarish struggles for power, the carnivalesque and bizarre, and the shadows and light of human character. This ambitious new study explores Welles's vision of cities by following recurring themes across his work, including urban transformation, race relations and fascism, the utopian promise of cosmopolitanism, and romantic nostalgia for archaic forms of urban culture. It focuses on the personal and political foundation of Welles's cinematic cities--the way he invents urban spaces on film to serve his dramatic, thematic, and ideological purposes. The book's critical scope draws on extensive research in international archives and builds on the work of previous scholars.

Cheech Wizard's book of me
Bodé, Vaughn, 1941-1975
Seattle, WA : Fantagraphics Books, 2015
The hat is back! This omnibus collects all of cult figure Vaughn Bode's psychedelic drug-inspired underground Cheech Wizard comics for the first time. Once upon a time, at two-thirty in the afternoon, on the enchanted island of York, lived a Wizard. Wearing a big hat to mask his identity, Cheech Wizard is a lascivious con man whose magical powers are questionable--but despite his transgressions (or perhaps because of them), he possesses some degree of cosmic insight. He has met his maker (legendary underground cartoonist Vaughn Bode, making a divine cartoon cameo), died and been reborn, and gained pop-culture immortality as a worldwide icon of hip hop and street art. For the first time, the Book of Me gathers all of Vaughn Bode's seminal Cheech Wizard comics into a single essential volume, along with rare and previously unpublished sketches and Cheech's outrageous continued adventures by Mark Bode. It's the biggest, baddest, ball-bustingest Book of Cheech ever!

Literature in the Digital Age : an introduction

New York : Cambridge University Press, 2016
The Digital Medium and Its Message -- Medium Shifts: Literary THought in Media History -- The Universal Library -- Digital Editions and the Complexity of Remediation -- Quantitative Approaches to the Literary -- Short-Circuiting the Publication Process -- Interactivity: Revolution and Evolution in Narrative -- Literature in the Digital Master Medium -- Print in the Digital Age

Literature in a Digital Age: An Introduction guides readers through the most salient theoretical, interpretive, and creative possibilities opened up by the shift to digital literary forms such as e-books, digital archives, and electronic literature. While Digital Humanities (DH) has been hailed as the 'next big thing' in literary studies, many students and scholars remain perplexed as to what a DH approach to literature entails, and skeptical observers continue to see literature and the digital world as fundamentally incompatible. In its argument that digital and traditional scholarship should be placed in dialogue with each other, this book contextualizes the advent of the digital in literary theory, explores the new questions readers can ask of texts when they become digitized, and investigates the challenges that fresh forms of born-digital fiction pose to existing models of literary analysis.

Muslim women in French cinema : voices of Maghrebi migrants in France
Kealhofer, Leslie
Liverpool : Liverpool University Press, 2015
Introduction: Maghrebi migrant women in France and French cinema -- The voices of Maghrebi women in documentary films : framing construction and transparency -- First-generation women in short films : crossing barriers and communicating experiences through objects -- The voices of Maghrebi migrant women in French telefilms : portraying agency -- Transmitting the voices of Maghrebi women through feature films : from verbal to non-verbal forms of communication -- Conclusion -- Appendix.

Muslim Women in French Cinema: Voices of Maghrebi Migrants in France is the first comprehensive study of cinematic representations of first-generation Muslim women from the Maghreb (Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia) in France. Women of this generation migrated to France during the decades preceding and following the end of French colonial rule, and they are generally - though not always accurately - regarded as belonging to a generation of migrants silenced under the weight of poverty, illiteracy, Islamic tradition, and majority ethnic Islamophobia. Situated at the intersection of post-colonial studies, gender studies, and film studies, this book brings together a diverse corpus of over 60 documentaries, short films, telefilms (made-for-television films), and feature films released in France between 1979 and 2014, and it devotes one chapter to each kind of film. In examining the ways in which the voices, experiences, and points of view of Maghrebi migrant women in France are represented and communicated through a selection of key films, this study offers new perspectives on Maghrebi migrant women in France. It shows that women of this generation, as they are represented in these films, are far more diverse and often more empowered than has generally been thought. The films examined in this study are part of larger contemporary debates and discussions relating to immigration, integration, and what it means to be French.

In the late '60s, underground comix changed the way comics readers saw the medium -- but there was an important pronoun missing from the revolution. In 1972, ten women cartoonists got together in San Francisco to rectify the situation and produce the first and longest-lasting all-woman comics anthology, Wimmen's Comix. Within two years the Wimmen's Comix Collective had introduced cartoonists like Roberta Gregory and Melinda Gebbie to the comics-reading public, and would go on to publish some of the most talented women cartoonists in America -- Carol Tyler, Mary Fleener, Aline Kominsky-Crumb, Dori Seda, Phoebe Gloeckner, and many others. In its twenty-year run, the women of Wimmen's tackled subjects the guys wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole: abortion, menstruation, masturbation, castration, lesbians, witches, murderesses, and feminists. Includes the ground-breaking 1970 one-shot, It Ain't Me, Babe, the very first all-woman comic book ever published.

L'abeille et la balance : penser l'essai
Langlet, Irène, author
Paris : Classiques Garnier, 2015
"L'essai s'épanouit dans la littérature moderne et contemporaine en toute indépendance du règne de la fiction et de l'absolu littéraire. Il exige du lecteur la posture intellectuelle originale et proprement utopique qui est à sa source, instituée en genre au XXe siècle, non sans contradictions théoriques. Les méandres de cette théorisation développent toute la richesse d'une pensée de l'essayisme, d'un anti-genre ou non-genre, et appellent, en fin de compte, le modèle esthétique d'une littérarité conditionnelle, afin de modéliser, non des substances, des territoires ou des procédés, mais des réglages de lecture surtout, d'écriture peut-être, de publication sûrement. De cette étude métapoétique, l'essai sort peut-être moins redéfini car son principe l'élude qu'éclairci dans son idéologie."--Page 4 of cover.
