The NFB's mandate is "[t]o make and distribute films designed to help Canadians in all parts of Canada to understand the ways of living and the problems of Canadians in other parts." NFB Founding Commissioner John Grierson "It's only by our lack of ghosts we're haunted." Canadian poet Earle Birney Haunting Inquiry: Classic NFB Documentary, Jacques Derrida, and the Curricular Otherwise reintroduces significant, if sometimes forgotten, National Film Board of Canada documentaries into contemporary curriculum conversation. Author Robert Christopher Nellis employs an inflection of Derridean deconstruction to mobilize historical, political, and intellectual themes emerging from the films as elliptical, curricular opportunities. The work explores hauntings in and around the documentaries to open toward Others neither fully present nor absent within the Canadian imagination. They remain troublingly illicit, as is the character of haunting... This book's contribution to the literature of curriculum is a unique and innovative conceptual framework, reintroduction of many classic NFB documentaries, and the use of a productive language and outlook to mobilize fresh perspectives and hopeful possibilities. The book will be an excellent text for graduate and undergraduate courses in Curriculum Studies, Media Education, and Media, Communications, and Canadian Studies.

"Rahat Naqvi and Hans Smits' edited collection, "Thinking about and Enacting Curriculum in 'Frames of War'" is centered on the theme of how the current global order creates precarious conditions for human life. The contributors respond to the challenges Judith Butler posed about the fragility of life and questions about how we apprehend, and take up ethically, our responsibilities for those who are considered "Other." The overarching objective of the book is the meaning of a call to ethics, and how discussion of framing and frames is a provocation to think about our responsibilities as curriculum scholars and practitioners"-- Provided by publisher.

In 1920's England, a young woman searches for the truth behind her uncle’s mysterious death in a town haunted by a restless ghost… Oxford student Jillian Leigh works day and night to keep up with her studies—so to leave at the beginning of the term is next to impossible. But after her uncle Toby, a renowned ghost hunter, is killed in a fall off a cliff, she must drive to the seaside village of Rothewell to pack up his belongings. Almost immediately, unsettling incidents—a book left in a cold stove, a gate swinging open on its own—escalate into terrifying events that convince Jillian an angry spirit is trying to enter the house. Is it Walking John, the two-hundred-year-old ghost who haunts Blood Moon Bay? And who beside the ghost is roaming the local woods at night? If Toby uncovered something sinister, was his death no accident? The arrival of handsome Scotland Yard inspector Drew Merriken, a former RAF pilot with mysteries of his own, leaves Jillian with more questions than answers—and with the added complication of a powerful, mutual attraction. Even as she suspects someone will do anything to hide the truth, she begins to discover spine-chilling secrets that lie deep within Rothewell…and at the very heart of who she is.

Haunting Modernity And The Gothic Presence In British Modernist Literature

This book explores the complex relationship between British modernism and the Gothic tradition over several centuries of modern literary and cultural history. Illuminating the blind spots of Gothic criticism and expanding the range of cultural material that falls under the banner of this tradition, Daniel Darvay focuses on how late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century British writers transform the artifice of Gothic ruins into building blocks for a distinctively modernist architecture of questions, concerns, images, and arguments. To make this argument, Darvay takes readers back to early exemplars of the genre thematically rooted in the English Reformation, tracing it through significant Victorian transformations to finally the modernist period. Through writers such as Oscar Wilde, Joseph Conrad, Virginia Woolf, E. M. Forster, and D. H. Lawrence, this book ultimately expands the boundaries of the Gothic genre and provides a fresh, new approach to better understanding the modernist movement.

The current trend in church leadership involves looking for a highly gifted leader who will take over, direct the future, cast a vision, and attract the faithful to a new mission or purpose. This desire for a leader to come to the rescue is eerily reminiscenet of the desire of the Israelites for a king, so they could "be like every other nation." In spite of Samuel's warnings, the people insisted, so God reluctantly gave them King Saul. That didn't go so well. While we always need good, new, and talented leaders, we also need leaders who know how and when to be good followers. Particularly in a culture of distrust, leadership must be granted, earned, and supported by those who are willing to follow. Leading begins with the counter-intuitive command: "Come, follow me." This imperative is far from easy. Many turned away from Jesus, unable to follow. However, one excellent model of "followership" stood out from the rest - the little-known disciple Andrew. In fact, Andrew is the model and paradigm for being a Lead Follower. Excellent Christian leadership is more about following Jesus than it is about learning the latest fads or tricks from business, the marketplace, or the academy. Being an excellent Christian leader involves first and foremost being an excellent and faithful follower of Jesus Christ.

In a time when it seems like we've run into the limits on what Marx, Dewey, and Freud might hold for liberatory critique, this peculiarly uplifting book seeks to identify some promising thinking and teaching practices, especially for work in our contemporary “corporate university of excellence.” With auto-ethnography as a baseline for reflection on her personal teaching life in this troubling political era, as well as an insistence that all students are future teachers whether they seek formal work in classrooms or not, Barbara Regenspan selects insights descending from her horribly imperfect trinity (Marx, Dewey, and Freud), to revaluate what it means to have “obligations to unknowable others” in our complex and global reality. Drawing on an interdisciplinary cast of contemporary social theorists such as Avery Gordon, Deborah Britzman, Maxine Greene, Bill Readings, and Alain Badiou, this book traces hauntagogical thinking and related classroom practice–hauntagogy–pedagogy aimed to create wide-awakeness through the unearthing of acts of historical and interpersonal hauntings. Balanced between critique and hope, Regenspan offers the field of Educational Studies including teacher education, but also higher education more generally, a way of conceiving of the classroom as a place where contradictions in discourses are mined with and for our students who will be future teachers in the formal or informal sense. Here is a view of what historical materialism might hold for the relationship between democracy and education and what that relationship means for new, wild, conceptions of self, politics, and spirituality. “Barbara Regenspan combines the personal, the political, and the educational in creative ways in this volume. In the process, she provides a number of important insights into the human complexities and necessary commitments involved in struggling toward an education that is worthy of its name.” – Michael W. Apple, John Bascom Professor of Curriculum and Instruction and Educational Policy Studies, University of Wisconsin, Madison and author of Can Education Change Society? “So much of my experience as an American teacher fell into place while reading this book. Regenspan never veers far from the pragmatic and personal realities of being an American educator right now, grappling with indifference, short-sightedness and disillusionment of the system. Her deft, and often profound intellectual work is peppered with anecdotes, both personal and pedagogical, and these accounts of teaching and learning on the ground level make her case fierce and fresh. Haunting and the Educational Imagination is politically humane and intellectually electrifying.” – Tony Hoagland, Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Houston, National Book Award Finalist, teacher of high school English teachers, and author of Unincorporated Persons in the Late Honda Dynasty.

The Politics Of Haunting And Memory In International Relations

International Relations has traditionally focused on conflict and war, but the effects of violence including dead bodies and memorialization practices have largely been considered beyond the purview of the field. Drawing on Jacques Derrida’s notion of hauntology to consider the politics of life and death, Auchter traces the story of how life and death and a clear division between the two is summoned in the project of statecraft. She argues that by letting ourselves be haunted, or looking for ghosts, it is possible to trace how statecraft relies on the construction of such a dichotomy. Three empirical cases offer fertile ground for complicating the picture often painted of memorialization: Rwandan genocide memorials, the underexplored case of undocumented immigrants who die crossing the US-Mexico border, and the body/ruins nexus in 9/11 memorialization. Focusing on the role of dead bodies and the construction of particular spaces as the appropriate sites for memory to be situated, it offers an alternative take on the new materialisms movement in international relations by asking after the questions that arise from an ethnographic approach to the subject: viewing things from the perspective of dead bodies, who occupy the shadowy world of post-conflict international politics. This work will be of great interest to students and scholars of critical international relations, security studies, statecraft and memory studies.

In this companion volume to The Haunting of America and The Haunting of Twentieth-Century America, national bestselling authors William J. Birnes and Joel Martin explore today's intellectual and spiritual awakening—one that is challenging traditional belief systems. Birnes and Martin show that, though many governments deny the importance of a spiritual component to national policy, even the most conservative governments have based social and financial policy decisions on a profound belief in the existence of the paranormal, ghosts, and spirits. From using psychic spying programs to gather intelligence on enemy nations to investigating the use of mind control to impede the abilities of hostile troops, the U.S. government has continuously developed paranormal weapons and tactics alongside their more mundane counterparts. U.S. Presidents from Franklin Pierce through Ronald Reagan regularly relied on the paranormal, using trance mediums, channelers, and astrologists to help plan agendas and travel schedules. The Haunting of Twenty-First-Century America is unlike any American history you will ever read—it posits that not only is the paranormal more normal than most people think, but that it is driving current events to a new "Fourth Culture" of the twenty-first century.

The Haunting of the Owens Family follows the Owenses for approximately 1 year, from 1974 to 1975. From most outside appearances, the Owenses are a normal, middle-class family who live in a big house in a nice neighborhood. Both the parents and the children have their crosses to bear, some ordinary and of this world, and some not. In spite of this, they each seem able to get up in the morning and face, if not accept, what lies ahead. But, walking a rope such as this can be done for only so long. What is truly going on in that house would cause the strongest of spirits to turn away. This novel follows a family as it tries to survive domestic abuse. It depicts the effects of screaming and throwing and yelling and the use of words meant to kill. It shows what happens when there is an ongoing war in your home. The Owenses story illustrates that what you do in front of your children, you do to your children. And the consequences are much more deleterious than those not realizing, not meaning to harm, expect. Amidst the ugliness, however, there are also dreams, magic, and hope. And the presence of ghostly activity in the Owenses house causes the reader to question the true catalyst of what has found this family. Theres Meggie, the wife and mother, who has lived most of her life the way she has been expected to, not questioning, not rising up, just following her duty, knowing somewhere inside that she has a penance to pay. There are the children: Elizabeth, whose anger is making a slow burn through her skin, who is most likely the only one in this family who actually sees what is going on. Grace, whose visions and clear eyes lend a certain magic to an otherwise oftentimes hopeless world. Danny, the only boy, whose dedication to making things right, trying to place order back into a chaotic world, almost ruins him. And Annabelle, whose tiny body and youngest mind help her to hide, but also cause her never to be seen -- not when it counts. And, finally, theres Dan, the husband and father -- a kind, funny man at times -- he finds himself in a place he never intended, where rage and a sense of injustice start the quakes in his house, in his children. This novel is intended for adults and is not appropriate for children.

From a PEN/Faulkner Award–winning author, The Caprices, seduces readers with a thriller praised as “dazzling . . . lovely, literate and deeply unnerving” (The New York Times Book Review). When we meet Katherine, the winning—and rather disturbing—twenty-three-year-old narrator, she has just left Italy and arrived in New York City, but what has propelled her there is a mystery. She soon strikes up an affair with a middle-aged Russian émigré novelist she meets on the subway, and almost immediately moves into his apartment. Katherine’s occasional allusions to a frighteningly eccentric mother and tyrannical father suggest a somberness at the center of her otherwise flippant and sardonic demeanor. Soon restless, she begins journeying across the continent, trailed, everywhere she goes, by a string of murders. As the ritualistic killings begin to pile up, Katherine takes to meditating on cannibalism in literature, art, and history. The story races toward a hair-raising conclusion, while Katherine and the reader close in on the reasons for both her and her mother’s fascination with aberrant, violent behavior. A brilliantly subtle commentary on twenty-first-century consumerism and Western culture’s obsession with new frontiers, A Carnivore’s Inquiry is an unsettling exploration of the questionable appetites that lurk beneath the veneer of civilization. “Murray paces her psychological thriller with consummate control, keeping the reader enthralled through subtle suggestion and a scattering of grisly details . . . Readers will be hooked by Murray’s classy treatment of her sexy-sinister subject matter.” —Publishers Weekly

Thoughts: The countless dancing shadows of the mind. By close examination, the mysterious inner light which cast them is found to possess a poetic, storied voice which, when in conversation with the curious, hints at the existence of its source-the infinite, peaceful, joyous soul. The poetry of Inquiry into the Sun is a collection of such conversations between that inner light and the author, curiously in search of his soul: "Awoke to melt into light, a dainty illumination, faint glow of incandescence. Within, without, a sky dissolved into this radiation; greenery attached itself, the grasslands, and trees, and then quickly departed into the blaze; what had become a sunny day, now saw the sun itself a shadow, and into the fires of love burned up the sun. The indistinguishable quality of such a heat, having no source, cannot be fiddled with by deceptive, malicious, or accidental ways. Intention save alone the pathway of discovery. Handling delicacies for practice, then wielding them as lasers. Cutting thru daybreak, the exterior of mass subsides. Standing tall in miniature ness, left to be found, expected, your You. Lifting a finger to touch the mirrored face, upon contact, more than one resident. Though as if to lookers on-the warmth and approval of a congregate interested in the good of all, gave thumbs-up to a union match as the one became the other; another One became both." -From the poem 'Hughe and Marta'
