A Fairy Tale
Author: Jonas T. Bengtsson
Publisher: Other Press, LLC
In a Europe without borders, where social norms have become fragile, a son must confront the sins of his father and grandfather, and invent new strategies for survival A young boy grows up with a loving father who has little respect for the law. They are always on the run, and as they move from place to place, the boy is often distraught to leave behind new friendships. Because it would be dicey for him to go to school, his anarchistic father gives him an unconventional education intended to contradict as much as possible the teachings of his own father, a preacher and a pervert. Ten years later, when the boy is entering adulthood, with a fake name and a monotonous job, he tries to conform to the demands of ordinary life, but the lessons of the past thwart his efforts, and questions about his father’s childhood cannot be left unanswered. Spanning the mid-1980s to early-twenty-first-century in Copenhagen, this coming-of-age novel examines what it means to be a stranger in the modern world, and how, for better or for worse, a father’s legacy is never passed on in any predictable fashion.
Exploring Text and Emotions
Author: Patrizia Lombardo, Lars Saetre, Julien Zanetta
Publisher: ISD LLC
The present volume is the second publication generated by the Project "Text, Action and Space". The first volume, Exploring Textual Action (Aarhus University Press, Acta Jutlandica, Humanistic Series, 2010), focused on textual action and performativity and their spatial implications. This volume aspires to contribute to the investigation of emotions and their interaction with the dynamics of textuality and spatiality, showing the essential role of literature and the arts in the understanding of affective phenomena, such as emotions, feelings, sentiments, dispositions and moods. All the articles are explorative in the sense that they work with concrete texts and other art works. As in the first volume, those with greater emphasis on the conceptual aspects are united in the section "Elaborations", while the contributions with a stronger analytical perspective can be found under the heading "Explorations".
Where the Winds Dwell
Author: Böðvar Guðmundsson
Publisher: Turnstone Press
Where the Winds Dwell is a letter from a father to his daughter. It is Patriciaa€(TM)s inheritance; her family history, which takes root in Iceland, blossoms in North America, and spans more than a century. But a family myth is more than a shoebox of letters and papers. Patriciaa€(TM)s father, a world-class opera singer, has given melody to their familya€(TM)s journey from Iceland.
This book â?? a product of an international symposium held in Greece in June 2008 and arranged by the international academic association Learning in Higher Education â?? addresses the importance of moving from a content-based view to a learning-centered view of higher education. Researchers and practitioners from five continents discuss three central themes that concern learning-centered higher education â?? the concept of learning; curriculum; and learning, teaching, and assessment processes. The chapters integrate theoretical conceptualizations and empirical examples. The book thereby offers both new approaches to the understanding of learning-centered higher education, as well as normative implications and examples of best practices from people involved in everyday practices of quality enhancement within higher education.

A Price for Everything
Author: Lotte Hammer, Soren Hammer
Author: Vibeke Vindeløv, Steven Harris
Publisher: Djoef Pub
Vibeke Vindeløv believes it is time for mediators to look further than merely discussing skills, techniques and models, and to take up the personal challenge and responsibility of being conscious of the deeper values and beliefs that drive us, and then constantly, during and after each mediation, to evaluate what we did and how we did it. The reflexive model thereby takes a longer view and has a sustainable perspective. What distinguishes this book from most other books on mediation is the way it links to together the now classical elements of the mediation process with the explicit values and attitudes of the mediator, and regardless of whether these concern technical matters, philosophical attitudes or values, and regardless of the type of conflict which is the subject of mediation or who the parties to the mediation are, these must guide and motivate the mediator.
