☯ Full Synopsis : "The activist tradition in American literature has long testified to the power of words to change people and the power of people to change the world, yet in recent years many professional humanists have chosen to distract themselves with a postmodern fundamentalism of indeterminacy and instability rather than engage with social and political issues. Throughout her bold and provocative call to action, Elizabeth Ammons argues that the responsibility now facing humanists is urgent: inside and outside academic settings, they need to revive the liberal arts as a progressive cultural force that offers workable ideas and inspiration in the real-world struggle to achieve social and environmental justice. Brave New Words challenges present and future literary scholars and teachers to look beyond mere literary critique toward the concrete issue of social change and how to achieve it. Calling for a profound realignment of thought and spirit in the service of positive social change, Ammons argues for the continued importance of multiculturalism in the twenty-first century despite attacks on the concept from both right and left. Concentrating on activist U.S. writers—from ecocritics to feminists to those dedicated to exposing race and class biases, from Jim Wallis and Cornel West to Winona LaDuke and Paula Moya and many others—she calls for all humanists to link their work to the progressive literature of the last half century, to insist on activism in the service of positive change as part of their mission, and to teach the power of hope and action to their students. As Ammons clearly demonstrates, much of American literature was written to expose injustice and motivate readers to work for social transformation. She challenges today’s academic humanists to address the issues of hope and purpose by creating a practical activist pedagogy that gives students the knowledge to connect their theoretical learning to the outside world. By relying on the transformative power of literature and replacing nihilism and powerlessness with conviction and faith, the liberal arts can offer practical, useful inspiration to everyone seeking to create a better world."Article| Elizabeth Ammons| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "A practical guide for all writers great and small, wishing to enrich their rhetorical and oratorical talents. Civilization is today witnessing the age of all things rhetorical – of ostentatious style triumphing over lackluster substance and tedious truth. To survive in this peacock-eat-peacock world, authors and orators must grasp and master the ancient secret of stylistic success, tapping into the same power source that continues to energize the expressions of Julius Caesar, Abraham Lincoln, or even Jedi Master Yoda. This is the timeless force of rhetorical devices, or figures of speech. In this fun guide, packed with hundreds of helpful illustrations, writing teacher Ramy Tadros shows you how to embrace the most popular rhetorical devices, giving you the tools to turn forgettable phrases into celebrated sentences."Article| Ramy Tadros| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Brave New Word is three books in one-1) a dictionary, 2) a spelling game, 3) and an visual art book, conceived to be a thinking tool for every age and interest level; it's a new way to see and think about words we often use mindlessly. These are the words we haven't yet discovered-we all have them, we just don't see the value in them yet. It's great fun, wordplay is proof-but I believe that there is an unlimited source of intelligence and adventure yet to be awakened-within each of us.This book offers 101 Brave New Words-selected from thousands-conceived and illustrated by myself-Leonardo Ramirez. I call myself a Lexicon Artist- words are my creative medium, to use my own words-I'm a WordSculptor, a Puntificator, an Interpretortionist; I creating words-to review present word use and to explore and inspire new thoughts and ideas.I believe we can and must reconnect with our natural gifts of thinking and communicating; the acts of seeing, saying, hearing and thinking words are all different experiences, with willingness and an "open mind", I believe the implementing this thinking exercise will help us to begin using-choosing and-"feeling" the words we use. For over twenty years I've been on a voyage-thinking about our thinking-on many levels, literally looking at the words we all learned, effects of the words we use and those words projected upon us through our present day cultures. As simple as the idea of thinking seems, I don't believe we are doing our best thinking yet; I've been told this is more than a book-I've been told that this is-a movement. Somebody will create and determine the future-we just might have the intelligence to have a say in creating a reality that is beneficial to us all. I hope you enjoy the exercise, I look forward to any comments or suggestions that you may have. - Leonardo Ramirez-"Article| Leonardo Ramirez| Statement ..."
