Cinematic Metaphor
61,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Metaphors in audiovisual media receive increasing attention from film and communication studies as well as from linguistics and multimodal metaphor research. The specific media character of film, and thus of cinematic metaphor, remains, however, largely ignored. Audiovisual images are all too frequently understood as iconic representations and material carriers of information. Cinematic Metaphor proposes an alternative: starting from film images as affective experience of movement-images, it replaces the cognitive idea of viewers as information-processing machines, and heals the break with rhetoric established by conceptual metaphor theory. Subscribing to a phenomenological concept of embodiment, a shared vantage point for metaphorical meaning-making in film-viewing and face-to-face interaction is developed. The book offers a critique of cognitive film and metaphor theories and a theory of cinematic metaphor as performative action of meaning-making, grounded in the dynamics of viewers' embodied experiences with a film. Fine-grained case studies ranging from Hollywood to German feature film and TV news, from tango lesson to electoral campaign commercial, illustrate the framework's application to media and multimodality analysis.

Always Running
12,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The award-winning and bestselling classic memoir about a young Chicano gang member surviving the dangerous streets of East Los Angeles, now featuring a new introduction by the author. Winner of the Carl Sandburg Literary Award, hailed as a New York Times notable book, and read by hundreds of thousands, Always Running is the searing true story of one man's life in a Chicano gang-and his heroic struggle to free himself from its grip. By age twelve, Luis Rodriguez was a veteran of East Los Angeles gang warfare. Lured by a seemingly invincible gang culture, he witnessed countless shootings, beatings, and arrests and then watched with increasing fear as gang life claimed friends and family members. Before long, Rodriguez saw a way out of the barrio through education and the power of words and successfully broke free from years of violence and desperation. Achieving success as an award-winning poet, he was sure the streets would haunt him no more-until his young son joined a gang. Rodriguez fought for his child by telling his own story in Always Running, a vivid memoir that explores the motivations of gang life and cautions against the death and destruction that inevitably claim its participants. At times heartbreakingly sad and brutal, Always Running is ultimately an uplifting true story, filled with hope, insight, and a hard-earned lesson for the next generation.

I firmly believe that what will make you a master teacher is not the advice I give you; what will make you a master teacher is that you figure out how to solve those challenges on your own, in your own way. - From the Preface As a new teacher you, face numerous challenges. Right from the start, you must learn how to manage a class full of restless students; develop productive relationships with fellow teachers, administrators, and parents; and design engaging lesson plans that will meet ever-increasing levels of accountability all while building a life for yourself in the process. It can be overwhelming and sometimes you can feel like you're all alone. And yet, you came to this profession because you want to make a difference. How do you juggle the demands of the profession and find your own voice, your own teaching style, your own teaching self? The good news is that you can do this. In this down-to-earth, inspirational audiobook, best-selling author Robyn Jackson offers encouragement and real-world advice for navigating those difficult years as a beginning teacher. Sharing stories from her own humbling first years as a new teacher, Robyn helps you tackle challenges such as motivating students, planning effective lessons, building relationships with parents, bouncing back from embarrassing mistakes, and finding your own authority as a teacher. She also helps you find success outside the classroom with practical pointers for living on a teacher's salary and carving out time to have a life of your own. With candor and a good deal of wit, she gently guides you to develop your own teaching style and, ultimately, to find your own path toward mastery. Robyn speaks to new educators as a trusted mentor, one who knows how to navigate the tricky terrain of "new teacherdom" - and knows how rich and rewarding the payoff will be. 1. Language: English.

Nadine Cohodas's biography of the passionate, talented and difficult, but ultimately lovable, Nina Simone is an object lesson in American life. With thorough interviews and research, much new material and information that has never before come to light, Nadine tells the story of Eunice Wayman, born in Tryon NC in 1933, with a stunning musical talent that was spotted early by family and friends. Trained as a classical pianist through the charitable auspices of a local white woman who paid for her lessons and made sure she had access to a first-rate piano teacher, Eunice became Nina Simone only after the devastating disappointment of not being accepted at the highly exclusive Curtis Institute of Music. She had planned to be a classical musician, and much of her life and career were colored by this fact -- as was her music, making her attack on a typical jazz tune uniquely heady and virtuosic. In the summer of 1954, in order to make a living, Eunice took a job playing the piano at a bar in Atlantic City, and before long she was not just playing but singing and was becoming Nina Simone, the marquis name she picked for these first gigs. The rest is history, or becomes so with Nadine's ministrations. We watch the exciting rise of Nina's discovery of herself as a singer (by 1959 she had a hit with "I Love You Porgy" and had sung Town Hall, was well received and on her way), her unique and challenging relationship with her audiences (she would "shush"; them angrily -- as a classically trained musician, she didn't believe in cabaret chat ), her involvement in and contributions to the Civil Rights Movement (through songs such as her seminal "Mississippi Goddam" and friendships with James Baldwin, Lorraine Hainsbury and Langston Hughes), her marriage and brief family contentment with the police detective Andy Stroud, with whom she had her daughter Lisa. Alongside these threads runs a darker one: Nina's increasing and sometimes baffling 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Renee Pitts.
