The argument has been made that memoir reflects and augments the narcissistic tendencies of our neo-liberal age. Mediating Memory: Tracing the Limits of Memoir challenges and dismantles that assumption. Focusing on the history, theory and practice of memoir writing, editors Bunty Avieson, Fiona Giles and Sue Joseph provide a thorough and cutting-edge examination of memoir through the lenses of ethics, practice and innovation. By investigating memoir across cultural boundaries, in its various guises, and tracing its limits, the editors convincingly demonstrate the plurality of ways in which memoir is helping us make sense of who we are, who we were and the influences that shape us along the way.

Taking as its starting point the much quoted comment by Socrates that ‘an unexamined life is not worth living”, this book is a ‘field guide to living an examined life’, a book to help you, the reader, to think about the life you are living, and to consider what you might want to do differently in the future. Like a good field guide, it does not provide answers, but provides the you with tools to identify and examine what is important. It does not tell you how you should live your life, or what decisions you should make, but rather it is a ‘questioner’s guide’, asking you to think more carefully about such subjects as loyalty, artistic creativity, wisdom and knowledge, managing your time, and determining how to live with others. At the end of each chapter, there are some questions that may help you decide what you could do differently as a result of living an 'examined life'..

In its attention to the ‘keywords of travel’, Keywords for Travel Writing Studies’ takes into account the established status of studies in travel writing and the field’s significance for an audience beyond the academy. It responds to what might be described as the ‘mobility turn’ in the arts and humanities over the past two decades. Each entry in the volume is around 1,000 words, and the style is more essayistic than encyclopaedic, with contributors providing a reflection on their chosen keyword from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. The emphasis on travelogues and other cultural representations of mobility drawn from a range of national and linguistic traditions ensures that the volume has a comparative dimension; the aim is to give an overview of each term in its historical and theoretical complexity, providing readers with a clear sense of how the selected words are essential to a critical understanding of travel writing. Each entry is complemented by an annotated bibliography of five essential items suggesting further reading.

A fresh approach to building integrity in all media Media Ethics at Work: True Stories from Young Professionals (By Lee Anne Peck and Guy S. Reel) transforms students into confident, self-reliant, and ethical decision makers, prepared to resolve moral dilemmas from day one of their first media job or internship. The highly anticipated Second Edition of this text continues to engage students with true stories of young professionals working in today’s multimedia news and strategic communications organizations, helping readers create meaningful connections to real-world applications. Each story is presented as a narrative, so students can work through the ethical dilemmas as they unfold, encouraging readers to think about and ask the question: “What would I do if this happened to me?” By creating a more personalized experience for students beginning their first entry-level media jobs or internship, this book helps readers develop their own ethical standards and apply in the workplace what they have learned.

“Tell me all about your trip!” It’s a request that follows travelers as they head out into the world, and one of the first things they hear when they return. When we leave our homes to explore the wider world, we feel compelled to capture the experiences and bring the story home. But for those who don’t think of themselves as writers, putting experiences into words can be more stressful than inspirational. Writing Abroad is meant for travelers of all backgrounds and writing levels: a student embarking on overseas study; a retiree realizing a dream of seeing China; a Peace Corps worker in Kenya. All can benefit from documenting their adventures, whether on paper or online. Through practical advice and adaptable exercises, this guide will help travelers hone their observational skills, conduct research and interviews, choose an appropriate literary form, and incorporate photos and videos into their writing. Writing about travel is more than just safeguarding memories—it can transform experiences and tease out new realizations. With Writing Abroad, travelers will be able to deepen their understanding of other cultures and write about that new awareness in clear and vivid prose.

While experiential staging is well documented in tourism studies, not enough has been written about the diverse types of experiences and expectations that visitors bring to the tourist space and how communities respond to, or indeed challenge, these expectations. This book brings together new ideas about cultural experiences and how communities, creative producers, and visitors can productively engage with competing interests and notions of experience and authenticity in the tourist environment. Part I considers the experiences of communities in meeting the needs of cultural tourists in an international context. Part II analyses the relationships between individualcultural tourists, the community, and digital technology. Finally, Part III responds to new methodologies in relation to interactions between government and regional policy and community development. Focusing on the way in which communities and visitors ‘perform’ new forms of cultural tourism, Performing Cultural Tourism is aimed at undergraduate students, researchers, academics, and a diverse range of professionals at both private and government levels that are seeking to develop policies and business plans that recognize and respond to new interests in contemporary tourism.
