Droits et voix - Rights and Voices

Strimelle, VeroniqueVanhamme, Françoise (Hrsg.) | Les Presses de l'Université d'Ottawa | Alternative Perspectives in Criminology


Cet ouvrage souligne le 40e anniversaire du Département de criminologie de l’Université d’Ottawa, fondé en 1968. On y relate l’histoire du département de ses origines à nos jours en mettant l’accent sur les débats théoriques qui ont influencé son approche critique et autoréflexive de la criminologie. Les articles qui le composent s’inscrivent dans cet ordre d’idée en mettant en question la perspective traditionnelle de la criminologie sur divers sujets, notamment les études policières, la santé mentale, la violence politique, le suicide et la prévention du crime. Droits et voix souligne le rôle primordial que joue l’Université d’Ottawa dans la redéfinition de la criminologie et la promotion du militantisme, de la justice sociale et de la compassion. -- This volume commemorates the 40th anniversary of the University of Ottawa’s Department of Criminology, founded in 1968. It relates the history of the department from its origins to today, focusing on the theoretical debates that have influenced its critical and self reflexive approach to criminology. The contributions to this volume continue in that vein by questioning the traditional perspective of criminology on a variety of topics including police studies, mental health, political violence, suicide, and crime prevention. Rights and Voices reveals the significant role that the University of Ottawa has played in redefining criminology to advocate activism, social justice, and compassion.

Controlling Knowledge

Athabasca University Press


Digital communications technology has immeasurably enhanced our capacity to store, retrieve, and exchange information. But who controls our access to information, and who decides what others have a right to know about us? In Controlling Knowledge, author Lorna Stefanick offers a thought-provoking and user-friendly overview of the regulatory regime that currently governs freedom of information and the protection of privacy.Aiming to clarify rather than mystify, Stefanick outlines the history and application of FOIP legislation, with special focus on how these laws affect the individual. To illustrate the impact of FOIP, she examines the notion of informed consent, looks at concerns about surveillance in the digital age, and explores the sometimes insidious influence of Facebook. Specialists in public policy and public administration, information technology, communications, law, criminal justice, sociology, and health care will find much here that bears directly on their work, while students and general readers will welcome the book's down-to-earth language and accessible style.

Intended to serve as a "citizen's guide," Controlling Knowledge is a vital resource for anyone seeking to understand how freedom of information and privacy protection are legally defined and how this legislation is shaping our individual rights as citizens of the information age.

Der Weg zum Fachbuch

vdf Hochschulverlag


Sie schreiben ein Fachbuch! Das Thema ist gewählt – Sie, ein Kenner der Materie, wissen, dass Sie etwas Wertvolles beizutragen haben. Sie haben eine klare Vorstellung von der Struktur des Buches, eventuell haben Sie sie bereits zu Papier gebracht. Der Erfolg, wenn auch nicht unbedingt wirtschaftlich, ist gesichert.

Sie notieren sich Ihre Gedanken. Sie lesen Bücher und Zeitschriften und kopieren, etwa um zu zitieren. Das Manuskript erhält eine gewisse Fülle, der Stapel gelesener Bücher wächst in die Höhe, die Anzahl gespeicherter Darstellungen steigt. Alles ist bestens. Aber irgendwann realisieren Sie, dass es beim Schreiben eines Fachbuches nicht ausschliesslich ums Recherchieren und Schreiben geht. Um den Überblick zu behalten, ist ein gewisses Mass an Organisation notwendig. Da kommt dieser Leitfaden, der die Fachbuchadministration konkretisiert, doch gerade recht.

Das Buch richtet sich an alle, die sich beim Schreiben möglichst wenig mit administrativer Arbeitstechnik aufhalten möchten. Es hilft u. a. bei der richtigen Verwaltung von Quellen, der Organisation von Abbildungen und der Administration von Manuskriptversionen. Darüber hinaus thematisiert es die verschiedenen Stufen des Entstehungsprozesses eines Fachbuchs, von der Idee über das Manuskript bis hin zur Zusammenarbeit mit Testlesern und Verlag. Praktische Beispiele illustrieren wichtige Aspekte und den Gebrauch der Instrumente.

Der Televisionär

Freyermuth, Gundolf S.Gotto, Lisa (Hrsg.) | Fuego


Wolfgang Menge (1924-2012) war einer der wichtigsten Drehbuchautoren der bundesdeutschen Nachkriegszeit. Fernsehspiele wie »Die Dubrow-Krise«, »Das Millionenspiel« oder »Smog« schrieben TV-Geschichte, Serien wie »Stahlnetz«, »Ein Herz und eine Seele« oder »Motzki« begeisterten und provozierten ein Millionenpublikum. Als Talkshow-Gastgeber wurde Menge zu einem der prominentesten Köpfe des Fernsehens – als Verfasser von Hörspielen, Theaterstücken und Kinofilmen, Romanen und Sachbüchern erprobte er transmediales Schreiben.

Dieser Band verbindet kritische mit dokumentarischen Perspektiven und versammelt Analysen seines Werks, Zeugnisse von Weggefährten sowie historische Schlüsseltexte über und von Wolfgang Menge.

Bittersweet

Goose Lane Editions


Sometimes the life we have constructed needs to fall apart before we can begin the process of making something better. After his first marriage ended, Philip Lee found himself living with his younger brother in an old fisherman's house by the sea, trying to restore some order to the wreckage of his life. It was a dark year of rain-bucket showers, blowtorch espresso, and abandoned renovation projects. They were bachelors in every sense of the word. With wit, warmth, and sensitivity, Philip Lee writes about this dark year, the struggle to rebuild his life and family and his rediscovery of love's possibilities. Lee's journey takes him from the coastlines of Eastern Canada to the cities of China and the Greek island of Naxos. Cutting to the heart of the matter, he explores how it is that we might lift ourselves up through the great work of love.

---

"If you're interested in a journalist's exploration of marriage and relationships, written in a style so personable that you'll wish you could have the author and his whole family over for dinner, I highly recommend giving Bittersweet a try."

---

"[Lee's] often startling vulnerability and openness invites readers to draw from his experience both the assurance that someone else has been where they are and points of departure for their own reflection on loving others."

---

"Beautifully written …. informative, entertaining and filled with hope... a must read for anyone who has walked through the pain of divorce and the joy of re-discovering love."

---

Philip Lee is the director of the School of Journalism at St. Thomas University. He is the former editor-in-chief of The Telegraph Journal and the author of Frank: The Life and Politics of Frank McKenna and Bittersweet: Confessions of a Twice-Married Man.

Lee has been recognized nationally for his writing. In 1989, his stories helped to prompt the Royal Commission of Inquiry into the Mount Cashel orphanage scandal and he was part of a team of writers shortlisted for the prestigious Michener Award for public service journalism. In 1995, Lee won two Canadian Association of Journalists awards, including best investigative report of the year in Canada, for a series of stories about Atlantic salmon conservation. He later turned the series into a book, Home Pool: The Fight to Save the Atlantic Salmon (Goose Lane, 1996). Over the years, Lee has won several Atlantic Journalism Awards and been shortlisted for a National Magazine Award for column writing.

Christmas with Maud Lewis

Goose Lane Editions


Maud Lewis has become one of Canada’s favourite folk artists, and her buoyant winter pictures of nature, pets, farm animals, and people at work and play are among her most charming. Her hands were twisted with arthritis, but Maud earned her living by painting Christmas cards and pictures and selling them from her tiny, gaily painted one-room house beside the highway near Digby, Nova Scotia.

Originally issued in 1997 and now available in this updated edition, Christmas with Maud Lewis paints a portrait of how this spirited woman celebrated the season in her life and art. Maud’s vision of Christmas embraces skaters sliding every which way, passengers leaning over the box of a horse-drawn sleigh, smiling oxen in their best harness, and bluebirds beside their snow-covered house. The paintings in Christmas with Maud Lewis are from the large collection of the Woolaver family.

---

Lance Woolaver’s parents began collecting paintings and Christmas cards by Maud Lewis in the 1950s. He first wrote about Maud Lewis in 1975. His books on Maud Lewis include Christmas with the Rural Mail, From Ben Loman to the Sea, The Illuminated Life of Maud Lewis, and Maud Lewis: The Heart on the Door as well as Christmas with Maud Lewis.

The Forgotten Peace

University of Ottawa Press | Governance Series


In the early hours of April 22, 1914, American President Woodrow Wilson sent Marines to seize the port of Veracruz in an attempt to alter the course of the Mexican Revolution. As a result, the United States seemed on the brink of war with Mexico. An international uproar ensued. The governments of Argentina, Brazil, and Chile offered to mediate a peaceful resolution to the crisis. Surprisingly, both the United States and Mexico accepted their offer and all parties agreed to meet at an international peace conference in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

For Canadians, the conference provided an unexpected spectacle on their doorstep, combining high diplomacy and low intrigue around the gardens and cataracts of Canada's most famous natural attraction. For the diplomats involved, it proved to be an ephemeral high point in the nascent pan-American movement. After it ended, the conference dropped out of historical memory.

This is the first full account of the Niagara Falls Peace Conference to be published in North America since 1914. The author carefully reconstructs what happened at Niagara Falls, examining its historical significance for Canada's relationship with the Americas. From this almost forgotten event he draws important lessons on the conduct of international mediation and the perils of middle-power diplomacy.

---

"This significant and engaging work provides a cogent analysis of [the A.B.C.] conference, an often-ignored incident in the course of the Mexican Revolution and a fascinating example of incipient Canadian involvement in the affairs of the hemisphere that will be of great intereest both to historians of Mexico and inter-American relations." -- Canadian Journal of History

Le Piège de la violence et les jeunes

Les Presses de l'Université d'Ottawa | Perspectives alternatives en criminologie


La violence a multiples faces, toutes celles qu'on lui donne selon les soucis de l'heure et les jeunes font toujours partie de ces soucis. Le piège de la violence dans lequel le jeune peut tomber ne dépend pas uniquement de son agir, mais relève de la façon dont on appréhende cet agir en termes de violence. Ce piège ne dépend pas non plus uniquement de ce qu'est le jeune; il relève souvent de la manière dont on se saisit de sa personne pour en préciser le profil délinquant. Dans ce processus qui conduit souvent au pénal, le piège se referme sur le jeune et peut le détruire complètement. L'ouvrage examine comment cette violence particulière capable de détruire le jeune s'infiltre socialement. Cette violence n'a pas sa source dans quelque intervention extraordinaire de l'autorité étatique, mais bien dans un quotidien plus ou moins banal où rationalisations, peurs, intérêts, idéologies reconduisent les structures en place. La violence des jeunes prend la figure de l'institution qui la combat.

The 1940 Under the Volcano

University of Ottawa Press | Canadian Literature Collection


The 1940 Under the Volcano—hidden for too long in the shadows of Lowry’s 1947 masterpiece—differs from the latter in significant ways. It is a bridge between Lowry’s 1930s fiction (especially In Ballast to the White Sea) and the 1947 Under the Volcano itself. Joining the recently published Swinging the Maelstrom and In Ballast to the White Sea, The 1940 Under the Volcano takes its rightful place as part of Lowry’s exciting 1930s/early-40s trilogy. Scholars have only recently begun to pay systematic attention to convergences and divergences between this earlier work and the 1947 version. Miguel Mota and Paul Tiessen’s insightful introduction, together with extensive annotations by Chris Ackerley and David Large, reveal the depth and breadth of Lowry’s complex vision for his work. This critical edition fleshes out our sense of the enormous achievement by this twentieth-century modernist.

---

It is in every way a stunning job, clear, thorough, everywhere intelligent yet accessible not only for the Lowry scholar, but also for the general reader: a fine professional piece of work that should stand for many years as the definitive rendering of this important text.

---

Malcolm Lowry was born in 1909 in northwest England, near Liverpool. During the 1930s he lived in London, New York, Mexico, and Los Angeles before moving to British Columbia in 1939. This move marked the start of a startlingly fertile period in Lowry's career as a 20th-century literary modernist. The 1940 Under the Volcano formed the basis for his masterpiece, Under the Volcano (1947)—one of the last great modernist novels.

---

Miguel Mota is Associate Professor of English at the University of British Columbia. He has published on numerous 20th-century and contemporary writers and filmmakers.

---

Paul Tiessen is Professor Emeritus at Wilfrid Laurier University. He is the founding editor of the Malcolm Lowry Newsletter (1977–1984) and The Malcolm Lowry Review (1984–2002).
