THIS BOOK takes up issues of current concern in composition studies, sociolinguistics, and ESL - issues concerning academic literacy, critical literacy, expressive versus cognitive approaches to the teaching of writing, and the like. It does so in a practical, experiential way, drawing on events in classrooms in universities in South Africa and the United States. The contrast between the South African context and the American, as well as their surprising parallels, highlight certain questions concerning the teaching of literacy in a dramatic way, so that theory and practice are brought together. In contrast to writing programs that follow a textbook or a planned sequence of study, the authors describe a narrative pedagogy that encourages students to find a direction and choose activities suggested by their own concerns and ongoing lives.

"This collection follows the extraordinary careers of nine colonial subjects who won seats in high-level parliamentary institutions of the imperial powers that ruled over them. Revealing an unexplored dimension of the complex political organisation of modern empires, the essays show how early imperial constitutions allowed for the emergence of these unexpected members of parliament, asks how their presence was possible, and unveils the reactions across metropolitan circles, local communities and the voters who brought them to office. Unearthing the entanglements between political life in metropolitan and non-European societies, it illuminates the ambiguous zones, the margins for negotiation, and the emerging forms of leadership in colonial societies. From a Hispanicised Inca nobleman, to recently emancipated slaves and African colonial subjects, in linking these individuals and their political careers together, Unexpected Voices in Imperial Parliaments argues that the political organisation of modern empires incorporated the voices of the colonised and the non-European, in an ambiguous relationship that led to a widening of political participation and action throughout the imperial world. In doing so, this book offers a comprehensive but nuanced reassessment of the making and unmaking of modern empires"--

Have you ever wondered if we live when we die? Do our beloved pets live on after death? Will we see them again? Have you ever thought you've seen a dark, ghostly figure out of the corner of your eye, but it vanished when you looked towards it? How many times have you awoken suddenly, certain that someone has called your name, but there is no one to be seen? What is clairvoyance? How does a medium make contact with the Spirit World? What is a ghost, and can we communicate with one?

Improve the way you live and interact with others around you as you are inspired by this book using the ancient art of storytelling. Through intriguing parables, real-life examples and poetry, Jozua van Otterloo presents and inspires how to become the best encourager you can be. "Unexpected. Encouragement is like a river flowing under a bridge, like those you would see in most cities around the world." - J. van Otterloo in the story "Food for Thought". Encouragement can take different forms and show itself in the exchange between different people. One thing characterizes encouragement. It is the force that exists in the exchange between people, where one comes alongside the other and for a period of time shares their journey, to help, support and strengthen the other. Unexpected: Five Inspirational Short Stories of Encouragement is a collection of modern-day parables, stories that help us see things differently, and reflections and poems. Each shows different ways encouragement flows and impacts others. Each of these is written with the aim to spur us on, to encourage us to become people of encouragement ourselves. Be inspired. Be encouraged. Become an encourager, yourself, and leave a legacy of encouragement.

Aniko Galambos, herself a breast cancer survivor, takes us on a lyrical journey through the experiences of twelve women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. These women come from different backgrounds; some live in cities, others in small towns; they are from different races, religions, and occupations; some were diagnosed thirty years ago and others only recently. For women who have just been diagnosed, this book bears witness to the fact that women who get breast cancer live - ten, twenty, thirty years. For women who are past the shock of the initial diagnosis and are struggling to find balance in their lives and hope for the future, these stories show how others have coped with identity crises, career changes, tests of faith, non-supportive partners and other challenges. This book is an invaluable resource for women with breast cancer and for anyone whose life has been touched by this disease.

The authors have selected twelve of the most prominent, influential and far-reaching theoretical positions currently available, such as hermeneutics, archetypal criticism, deconstruction, psychoanalysis, feminism and Marxism. In a way that the general reader can easily access, Atikins and Morrow discuss the primary features, background, strategies and implications of those theories which are most influential at the present time.
