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.

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.

Cosmographia

BookThug


Butt out, Dante. Move over, Milton. Piss off, Pound. Outta the way, Olson. Here comes Cosmographia – a post-Lucretian faux micro-epic, the latest ground breaking incursion into the ever popular spectacle of the Epic Poem. Tracking the classic epic journey through the unfolding cosmos toward home, though occasionally disoriented by milling cows with similar intent, Cosmographia teems with nasty political invective, scurrilous spiritual slander, and endless exploitive sexual innuendo. Taking as its muses Cab Calloway and Charles Mingus, by the time it gets home, Cosmographia has subjected the epic to unspeakable acts in the name of linguistic rectumtude, dada terrorism, and sporadic ejaculations of self-expression. Oh yeah! – poetry will never be the same.

Well, this isn’t fair, is it? Boughn starts out as if he’s just fooling around, and then he sneaks in a major long poem for our time, whatever that is. This happened to me once before in Muncie, and this time it was even better. – George Bowering

Les Cahiers du Journalisme, V.2, NO1

Labasse, BertrandSavary, PierreWatine, Thierry (Hrsg.) | Les Presses de l'Université d'Ottawa | Les Cahiers du Journalisme


Fondés il y a plus de vingt ans à l'instigation de Patrick Pépin et de Pierre Bourdieu, qui en signait le premier article, Les Cahiers du journalisme prennent un nouveau départ. Cette seconde série associe désormais la perspective d'une revue de réflexion ouverte à des analyses et points de vue variés (Les Cahiers du journalisme - Débats), à celle d'une revue de recherche internationale publiant des dossiers, articles et notes soumis à évaluation scientifique externe (Les Cahiers du journalisme - Recherches). Elle prolonge ainsi le rôle majeur qu'elle a joué dans le développement des travaux et échanges sur le journalisme francophone, en favorisant un dialogue ouvert entre les professionnels et les chercheurs sans pour autant méconnaître les spécificités de leurs approches respectives.

Ce livre est publié en français.

---

L’ensemble tient la promesse du comité éditorial : ne s’affilier à « aucune chapelle ni aucune école de pensée particulière ». Ces travaux ouvrent ainsi pour les professionnels des pistes de réflexion sur leurs pratiques vues sans parti pris idéologique ou corporatiste. Et pour le public le plus vaste l’occasion de sortir des lieux communs sur l’information pour en comprendre les ressorts profonds de la fabrication.

Before I Was a Critic I Was a Human Being

Book*hug Press


In that moment, I felt closer to whiteness than not. I was completely complicit and didn?t think twice about entering a space that could cover their walls with images of contemporary Indigenous perspectives, but exclude their physical bodies from entering and experiencing. In that moment, I felt like a real Canadian.

Before I Was a Critic I Was a Human Being is the debut collection of nonfiction essays by Amy Fung. In it, Fung takes a closer examination at Canada's mythologies of multiculturalism, settler colonialism, and identity through the lens of a national art critic.

Following the tangents of a foreign-born perspective and the complexities and complicities in participating in ongoing acts of colonial violence, the book as a whole takes the form of a very long land acknowledgement. Taken individually, each essay roots itself in the learning and unlearning process of a first generation settler immigrant as she unfurls each region's sense of place and identity

Praise for Before I Was a Critic I Was a Human Being:

?The hours I've spent with this knowing and moving book about place and placelessness are among the most valuable of my reading life. Wow, thank you, Amy." —Eileen Myles

"As an Indigenous/Haudenosaunee writer and reader, I recognize that Amy Fung's book does not try to convince us that she is a native rights ally but shows us with language how to mould the term ally into a verb." —Janet Rogers, author of Totem Poles and Railroads

"In this compelling work, Amy Fung breathes life and relevance into criticality. This visitor's guide is integral reading." —Cecily Nicholson, author of Wayside Sang, winner of the Governor General's Literary Award for Poetry.

Amy Fung is a writer, researcher and curator born in Kowloon, Hong Kong, and spent her formative years in and around Edmonton on Treaty 6 Territory. Her writings have been published and commissioned by national and international publications, galleries, museums, festivals, and journals since 2007. Her multifarious curatorial projects have spanned exhibitions, cinematic and live presentations, as well as discursive events across Canada and abroad. Before I was a Critic I was a Human Being is her first book.

Les Littératies

Dionne, Anne-MarieBerger, Marie Josée (Hrsg.) | Les Presses de l'Université d'Ottawa | Collection Questions en éducation


Signées par des spécialistes provenant de différentes provinces canadiennes, les huit études réunies dans ce volume nous font découvrir que l'acquisition de la littératie est influencée tant par le développement linguistique que l'environnement familial ou la société dans laquelle l'enfant évolue. La littératie -- néologisme qui s'intègre graduellement dans le langage de l'éducation -- vise à rendre compte du caractère englobant de la langue et de la culture. En effet, la littératie dépasse le simple fait de savoir lire et écrire et renvoie aux capacités de l'individu à maîtriser l'écrit pour penser, communiquer, acquérir des connaissances, résoudre des problèmes, réfléchir sur son existence, partager sa culture et se divertir. L'individu lettré ne peut donc se définir sans l'écrit qui est un atout indispensable pour lire, se lire et lire le monde qui nous entoure. Chaque étude contribue de façon originale à faire comprendre les enjeux essentiels qui influencent la littératie.
