♥ Book Title : Close Listening
☯ Full Synopsis : "Close Listening brings together seventeen strikingly original essays, especially written for this volume, on the poetry reading, the sound of poetry, and the visual performance of poetry. While the performance of poetry is as old as poetry itself, critical attention to modern and postmodern poetry performance has been surprisingly slight. This volume, featuring work by critics and poets such as Marjorie Perloff, Susan Stewart, Johanna Drucker, Dennis Tedlock, and Susan Howe, is the first comprehensive introduction to the ways in which twentieth-century poetry has been practiced as a performance art. From the performance styles of individual poets and types of poetry to the relation of sound to meaning, from historical and social approaches to poetry readings to new imaginations of prosody, the entries gathered here investigate a compelling range of topics for anyone interested in poetry. Taken together, these essays encourage new forms of "close listenings"--not only to the printed text of poems but also to tapes, performances, and other expressions of the sounded and visualized word. The time is right for such a volume: with readings, spoken word events, and the Web gaining an increasing audience for poetry, Close Listening opens a number of new avenues for the critical discussion of the sound and performance of poetry."Article| Charles Bernstein| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Listening
☯ Full Synopsis : "How can new and experienced teachers rethink the ways of teaching and learn to embrace and learn from the diversity they encounter among their students? Rather than preparing teachers to follow prescriptions or blueprints, Katherine Schultz suggests that we show them how to attend to and respond to the students they teach. In this book, she offers a conceptual framework for "deep listening," illustrating how successful teachers listen for the particularities of individual students, listen for the rhythm and balance of the whole class, listen for the broader contexts of students' lives, and listen for silence and acts of silence. Listening in this manner brings together knowledge of individual students, an understanding of a student's place within the classroom, and mastery of subject matter and pedagogy. This volume features compelling case studies that reveal the classroom lives of teachers who are exemplary listeners."Article| Katherine Schultz| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Counseling the Communicatively Disabled and Their Families
☯ Full Synopsis : "Counseling the Communicatively Disabled and Their Families: A Manual for Clinicians, Second Edition, written by George H. Shames, emphasizes the development of specific interviewing and counseling skills for speech-language pathologists and audiologists, which is a requirement of ASHA's clinical certification standards. The book offers a clear, basic definition of counseling, then builds a picture of the multidimensional role of counseling in speech-language pathology and audiology using anecdotal references to clinical cases.

Practicing clinicians and students in communication disorders programs, in addition to social workers and clinical psychologists, will find this book invaluable to their training as focused, helpful evaluators and counselors of the communicatively disabled. It will also apply to training in other contexts and circumstances wherein counseling is appropriate."Article| George H. Shames| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Patient-Centred Medicine in Transition
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book challenges functional models for more aesthetic and ethical models, where communication is grounded in values systems of cultures. Here, communication is treated as a distributed phenomenon involving networks of persons, activities and artifacts, and extends beyond doctor-patient relationships to working in and across teams around patients. The purpose of the book is to stimulate thinking about how patient care and safety may be improved through a focus upon the ‘non-technical’ work of doctors – interpersonal communication, teamwork and situation awareness in teams. The focus is then not on the personality of the doctor, but on the dynamics of relationships which form doctors’ multiple identities."Article| Alan Bleakley| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Our House
☯ Full Synopsis : "Space has emerged in recent years as a radical category in a range of related disciplines across the humanities. Of the many possible applications of this new interest, some of the most exciting and challenging have addressed the issue of domestic architecture and its function as a space for both the dramatisation and the negotiation of a cluster of highly salient issues concerning, amongst other things, belonging and exclusion, fear and desire, identity and difference.Our House is a cross-disciplinary collection of essays taking as its focus both the prospect and the possibility of 'the house'. This latter term is taken in its broadest possible resonance, encompassing everything from the great houses so beloved of nineteenth-century English novelists to the caravans and mobile homes of the latterday travelling community, and all points in between. The essays are written by a combination of established and emerging scholars, working in a variety of scholarly disciplines, including literary criticism, sociology, cultural studies, history, popular music, and architecture. No specific school or theory predominates, although the work of two key figures – Gaston Bachelard and Martin Heidegger – is engaged throughout. This collection engages with a number of key issues raised by the increasingly troubled relationship between the cultural (built) and natural environments in the contemporary world."Article| Gerry Smyth| Statement ..."
