Book excerpt: Where do you come from? Where do you call home? Why? Often, when we think about belonging, we associate it with our country of birth, or the country we are raised in. This stems from the common belief that the place of one’s origin is the place one should know best. However, this easy version of belonging is complicated by increasing rates of global migration. For Yin Xzi Ho, the phenomenon of belonging is one she has navigated for most of her life. Growing up, she has travelled between Malaysia and China while being educated at an American international school. She has spent years unlearning the notion that her identity is based on what she is not (i.e. not Asian enough for her home country, not culturally White enough for her schools), in order to define for herself where she belongs. Rooted in feminist and human geography, as well as cultural anthropology and sociology, Home Is Here is a moving collection of poetry and prose filled with delicious food, wondrous sights, lasting friendships, and immense wisdom. Yin Xzi Ho takes us on a journey through China, Malaysia, Canada, Bhutan, Myanmar, and Australia as she discovers what it means to be home and what it feels like to belong.

Book excerpt: The ever-organized Air Force wife tackles a case of murder in the “satisfying, well-executed second Mom Zone cozy” from the USA Today bestselling author (Publishers Weekly). Ellie Avery balances motherhood, marriage, and her own business—Everything in Its Place—with cheerful efficiency. A maestro of organization, she sees her life as an easy checklist that does not include the untimely death of Penny Follette. Unlike the police, Ellie isn't convinced Penny's death was suicide. But it's an uphill battle getting the officials to take her seriously. Then another spouse is strangled, and someone tries to poison an outspoken female Air Force pilot. Poking about in closets and peeking through drawers, Ellie hopes to find the common thread tying the crimes together. With her husband Mitch about to be deployed in the “sandbox” (that's the Mideast for us civvies), she wants some quality time with her significant other. As the schedule tightens and the mystery heightens, Ellie's out to prove that home is not for killers!

Book excerpt: Since 1970 in Quebec, there has been immense change for the Cree, who now live with the consequences of Quebec's massive development of the North. Home Is the Hunter presents the historical, environmental, and cultural context from which this recent story grows. Hans Carlson shows how the Cree view their lands as their home, their garden, and their memory of themselves as a people. By investigating the Cree's three hundred years of contact with outsiders, he illuminates the process of cultural negotiation at the foundation of ongoing political and environmental debates. This book offers a way of thinking about indigenous peoples' struggles for rights and environmental justice in Canada and elsewhere.

Summary Book Review Canadian Wetlands :

Download or read book Canadian Wetlands written by Rod Giblett and published by Intellect Ltd. This book was released on 2014 with total page 235 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The book aims to promote the conservation of Canadian wetlands by showcasing their values as places of new life and as sites historically of sustainable agriculture, and by critiquing the negative press that has accrued to them in the past as places of disease and horror, of the melancholy and the monstrous. It does so in part by reading the Canadian canon against the grain, critiques its representation of wetlands and proposes alternatives by highlighting the work of recent and contemporary Canadian writers, such as Douglas Lochhead and Harry Thurston, who wrote appreciatively about wetlands and by entering into dialogue with American writers about wetlands. This book will promote dialogue between wetlands conservationists, researchers and universities both within Canada, particularly between English and French Canadians, and with the UK, US and Australia. It will be a major contribution to Canadian studies and to environmental cultural studies in Canada, the US, UK and Australia. It will enhance the understanding of wetlands internationally. Despite distance and vastly different geographies, Canada and Australia as colonies of the British Empire share many similarities, not least in regard to colonial European perceptions of wetlands as places of disease and horror, melancholy and the monstrous, as well as indigenous peoples life with wetlands. Both countries also eventually perpetrated similar destructive impacts on wetlands via capitalism, industrialisation, urbanisation and modernisation. This book discusses all of these aspects. This book will create an international dialogue between researchers about the history and contemporary cultural values of wetlands in their respective countries and about their differences and similarities. It will enhance mutual respect between researchers for the contribution that different disciplinary approaches can and do make to the study and conservation of wetlands internationally. Canadians have largely been fixated on mountains, lakes and prairies as the national landscapes. Canadian wetlands have largely been neglected, yet Canada possesses 26% of the world s wetlands, many of which have international conservation status as Ramsar Convention Wetlands of International Importance.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book examines the transformations in home lives arising in later life and resulting from global migrations. It provides insight into the ways in which contemporary demographic processes of aging and migration shape the meaning, experience and making of home for those in older age. Chapters explore how home is negotiated in relation to possibilities for return to the "homeland," family networks, aging and health, care cultures and belonging. The book deliberately crosses emerging sub-fields in transnationalism studies by offering case studies on aging labour migrants, retirement migrants, and return migrants, as well as older people affected by the movement of others including family members and migrant care workers. The diversity of people’s experiences of home in later life is fully explored and the impact of social class, gender, and nationality, as well as the corporeal dimensions of older age, are all in evidence.

Book excerpt: At the funeral of his son, Robert, Julian Manchester saw something in his grandson, Bobby, which made him invite Bobby to move back to their home town after he graduates from college. Bobby has not been close to Gran'pa Julian or his grandmother, Mava Lou, since his mother died when he was three years old, and his grief-stricken father moved him and his older brother, Mark, to the city. Julian and Mava Lou are getting older, and Bobby decides to come home and get to know them before it is too late. He applies for a job at a local accounting firm and is hired. His decision has far-reaching effects on, not only his own life, but on the lives of several other people.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Mediatized Transient Migrants: Korean Visa-Status Migrants’ Transnational Everyday Lives and Media Use examines the role of digital media in Korean visa-status migrants’ everyday lives in terms of their senses of home, belonging, and identity. Based on personal interviews with 40 migrants (temporary workers, academic students, and their dependents) living in Austin, Texas, Claire Shinhea Lee argues that the mundane use of homeland media brought by new media technology allows these migrants to make, connect to, and complicate home in their transnational space. Through the theoretical framework of mediatization and transnationalism, Lee links a transnational polymedia environment and emerging digital culture (cord-cutting and algorithmic culture) to interrogate mobility and migration in the globalization era. The book reveals not only the multi-positionality within the transient migration but also the gendered structure of the visa system.

Download or read book Poems of American History written by Various and published by HOUGHTON MIFFLIN COMPANY. This book was released on 2015-01-26 with total page 1279 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Example in this ebook The poetry relating to American history falls naturally into two classes: that written, so to speak, from the inside, on the spot, and that written from the outside, long afterwards. Of the first class, "The Star-Spangled Banner" is the most famous example, as well as perhaps the best. Even at this distant day, reading it with a knowledge of the circumstances which produced it, it has a power of touching the heart and gripping the imagination which goes far toward proving the genuineness of its art. Of the second class, "Paul Revere's Ride" is probably the most widely known, though Mr. Longfellow's own "Ballad of the French Fleet" is a better poem. It is evident that, in compiling an anthology such as this, different standards must be used in judging these two classes. The first, aside from any quality as poetry which it may have, is of value because of its historical or political interest, because it is an expression and an interpretation of the hour which gave it birth. With it, poetic merit is not the first consideration, which is, perhaps, as well. Yet, however slight their merit as poetry may be, many of the early ballads possess an admirable energy, directness, and aptness of phrase, and there is about them a childlike simplicity impossible of reproduction in this sophisticated age—as where Stephen Tilden, in his epitaph on Braddock, requests the great commanders who have preceded that unfortunate soldier to the grave to "Edge close and give him room." With the retrospective ballad, on the other hand, poetic merit is a sine qua non. It has little value historically, however accurate its facts. It differs from the contemporary ballad in the same way that the "New Canterbury Tales" differ from Froissart; or as the "Idylls of the King" differ from "Le Morte Arthur." It is less authentic, less convincing, less vital. It may have atmosphere, but there is no infallible way of telling whether the atmosphere is right. Unless it is something more, then, than mere metrical history, the modern ballad has little claim to consideration. These are the two principles which the present compiler has had constantly in mind. Yet the second principle has been violated more than once, since, in a collection such as this, one must cut one's coat according to the cloth; or, rather, one must make sure that one is decently covered, though the covering may here and there be somewhat inferior in quality. So it has been necessary, in order to keep the thread of history unbroken, to admit some strands anything but silken; and if the choice has sometimes been of ills, rather than of goods, the compiler can only hope that he chose wisely. The most difficult and trying portion of his task has been, not to get his material together, but to compress it into reasonable limits. Especially in the colonial period was the temptation great to include more early American verse. Peter Folger's "A Looking-Glass for the Times," Benjamin Tompson's "New England's Crisis," Michael Wigglesworth's "God's Controversy with New England," the "Sot-Weed Factor," and many others, which it is recalling an old sorrow to name here, were excluded only after long and bitter debate. No doubt other exclusions will be noticed by nearly every reader of the volume—and it may interest him to know that the material gathered together would have made four such books as this.

Book excerpt: Claire Eppington feels unfinished. Her mother died when Claire was young. Her father raised her in a home suffused with grief and loneliness. When she was an adult, her father left her with a gift from her mother: a journal full of memories, hopes, and regrets. Claire can barely bring herself to open the porcelain-encrusted memorial. She is full of resentment, a fear of death, and a nagging sense of incompletion. It is ironic, then, that Claire chooses a career overseeing the final rites of people whose families want their ashes spread at exotic or distant locales. On a trip to Colombia to bring the remains of a client to a remote village on the Rio de Magdalena, Claire finds that her job may be more deadly than she expected. Her assignment allows her to work with Manny Villareal, a handsome and rugged photographer. What Claire does not know is that Manny used to work as a security chief for his family's cartel. When Manny's brother becomes threatened, Claire becomes a pawn in a dangerous game. Pursued by an assassin and pressed by military groups, a rogue DEA agent, and a greedy relative seeking to overthrow the cartel, Manny is forced to make a choice. Does he save his family, or the woman he is beginning to love? Claire is faced with her mother's legacy, a dangerous assignment in a country full of beauty and romance, and the possibility that her greatest fear may become a reality.

Download or read book The Migration of Highly Educated Turkish Citizens to Europe written by Zeynep Yanasmayan and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2018-10-29 with total page 158 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The increasing global competition of knowledge economies has begun a new era of labour migration, as economies chase ‘the best and the brightest’: the movement of highly skilled workers. This book examines the experiences of highly educated migrants subjected to two distinct and incompatible public discourses: one that identifies them in terms of nationality and presupposed religion, and another that focuses on their education and employment status, which suggests that they deserve the best treatment from societies engaged in the global 'race for talent'. Presenting new empirical research collected in Amsterdam, Barcelona and London amongst highly educated migrants from Turkey, the author draws on their narratives to address the question of whether such migrants should be apprehended any differently from their predecessors who moved to Europe as 'guestworkers' in the twentieth century. With attention to the reasons for which highly skilled workers choose to migrate and then stay (or not) in their 'host' countries, their connection to their multiple homes and the ways in which they meet the challenges of integration – in part by way of their position in relation to other migrants – and their acquisition of citizenship in the 'host' country, The Migration of Highly Educated Turkish Citizens to Europe offers insights on an under-researched trend in the field of migration. The author develops three nexuses – the mobility/migration nexus, the mobility/citizenship nexus, and the mobility/dwelling nexus – to account for the embedded sense of mobility that underlies these ‘new’ migrants and offers a holistic picture about their trajectory from ‘arrival to settlement’ and all that lies in-between. As such, it will appeal to scholars in the fields of sociology and political science with interests in migration and mobility, ethnicity and integration.

Download or read book Home written by Arien Mack and published by NYU Press. This book was released on 1995-07-01 with total page 294 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Our schools suck." This is how many young people of color call attention to the kind of public education they are receiving. In cities across the nation, many students are trapped in under-funded, mismanaged and unsafe schools. Yet, a number of scholars and of public figures like Bill Cosby have shifted attention away from the persistence of school segregation to lambaste the values of young people themselves. Our Schools Suck forcefully challenges this assertion by giving voice to the compelling stories of African American and Latino students who attend under-resourced inner-city schools, where guidance counselors and AP classes are limited and security guards and metal detectors are plentiful—and grow disheartened by a public conversation that continually casts them as the problem with urban schools. By showing that young people are deeply committed to education but often critical of the kind of education they are receiving, this book highlights the dishonesty of public claims that they do not value education. Ultimately, these powerful student voices remind us of the ways we have shirked our public responsibility to create excellent schools. True school reform requires no less than a new civil rights movement, where adults join with young people to ensure an equal education for each and every student.
