Winner of the Audience Award at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival, this offbeat independent comedy drama stars Peter Dinklage as Finbar McBride, a lonely man with dwarfism who moves to an abandoned train station in rural New Jersey to live the life of a hermit after suffering the bereavement of his best - and possibly only - friend. But despite his intention to live a solitary existence, he unexpectedly meets fellow loners Olivia (Patricia Clarkson), an artist devastated by the loss of her son and subsequent separation from her husband, and Joe (Bobby Cannavale), an open and friendly hot dog vendor whose good-natured demeanour lays waste to Fin's emotional barricades. The unlikely trio struggle with the conflict between their instinct to connect and open up to each other, and their need to carry on existing in the less risky state of isolation.

In 1987 Aperture published Lynne Cohen's first monograph, Occupied Territory, an exploration of space as simulated experience-an ersatz reality, idealized and standardized. Now, Aperture is pleased to release a newly expanded and updated reissue of this classic monograph, making Cohen's pioneering work available to a contemporary audience and situating her appropriately within the lineage of Lewis Baltz, Stephen Shore, and other widely celebrated Topographic photographers. In the twenty years of work contained in the book, Cohen turns her view camera toward classrooms, science laboratories, testing facilities, waiting rooms, and other interior spaces where function triumphs over aesthetics. What decorations the inhabitants might have added to these rooms to make them more inviting-mostly phony attempts at warmth or individualism-only serve to amplify their artifice and uniformity. In cool, functional offices, futuristic reception areas, lifeless party rooms, escapist motel rooms, and haunting killing chambers, Cohen surveys a society of surface, contradiction, and social engineering. In her hands, clouds peel off walls and forest glades invade indoor tennis courts, and the awkward lives of furniture are revealed. Drawing on a background in sculpture, Cohen records the world's readymade sculptures, waiting to be framed by the photograph. This new edition of Occupied Territory includes a new text by Britt Salvesen, and over fifteen unpublished images drawn from the book's original time period of the '70s and '80s, encouraging a reexamination of Cohen's deft exploration of Topographic seeing.

R315 Discovery Miles 3 150 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

"In 'A Terrible Case of Beauty, ' Lynn Cohen takes on one of the most charged geo-political issues of our time and forces us to experience it with compassion. Her richly imagined characters intertwine in a riveting drama about boundaries, identity, loyalty, and love. Shading with gray what is too often spoken about in black and white terms, Cohen vividly and fearlessly takes us into the hearts and minds of people on different sides of the Israel-Palestine "question..."." Leslie Schwartz, author of "Jumping the Green" and "Angels Crest." "Lynn Cohen manages what politicians seem to find it so impossibly difficult to do - she imagines the experience of "the other." Skillfully, tenderly she renders the infinitely perplexing and sorrowful occupation, the complicated struggle for justice in Palestine/Israel into particular human size and scale. "What he dreams about is becoming someone else entirely" (p. 25) -- in some ways, all her characters do, or need to... Through chapters rich with intricate, careful details, haunting encounters, and, a wide range of compelling conversations, Cohen shapes new possibilities for consideration and understanding." Naomi Shihab Nye, poet, novelist, and songwriter. ..".bursts all the usual neat cliches on the Palestino-Israeli conflict. In her picturesque language, Cohen paints vivid pictures of complex human beings and life that turn the straightforward categorizations on their head... nothing is as perceived and expected." Alon Serper, psychologist and educator. Published by Trebol Press www.trebolpress.com

"Bloodline: A Family History" captures the moving and terrifying stories of author Lynne Cohen's paternal relatives, who travelled from nineteenth-century Russia to the New World, only to experience violence, fear, and sadness. They experienced a brutal double murder in Nova Scotia of a beloved family patriarch and his wife, her great aunt and uncle, and a deadly the fire in Sackville, New Brunswick, that almost killed her father, who turned hero on that cold December night. In addition, other relatives of Cohen's were forced to flee Cuba with nothing more than the shirts on their backs during the Cuban revolution. The Cohen family has undergone so much upheaval and so many intriguing events over the past two centuries in the Maritimes. This family history also shares inspiring stories of Cohen's recent maternal ancestors, who came from Ireland and settled in the "town of canals"-Lowell, Massachusetts-to work in the massive, grimy textile mills. Many of Cohen's cousins sent her personal, funny, priceless anecdotes and other information about their parents and the extended Cohen family tree. "Bloodline" combines gripping, humourous writing and a profound love of family to provide a fascinating family history.

Dreams and Dreamers (Paperback): Lynn Cohen Dreams and Dreamers (Paperback)

R308 Discovery Miles 3 080 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

There are sensibilities time cannot dull or the imperfections of memory degrade. In Dreams and Dreamers, Lynn Carroll Cohen offers her readers these. In her finest poems, she displays a rare gift-recollections that are tender and yet enduring, reflections that are deeply passionate and yet in possession of discernment and terrific grace. A bravura performance -George Wallace First Suffolk County Poet Laureate Lynn Cohen's Dreams and Dreamers evokes a palpably inflamed sensuality that doesn't dissipate into the thin air of dreams, disillusionment, and the taut arrow of time because "In the primal hours / of the private present," Cohen can embrace "a personal communion" by "composing her] history" in a compelling world where, as "Life erases itself," she can generate the ardently ultimate reality of the human heart. -Gayl Teller Nassau County Poet Laureate Lynn Cohen's poems are tender elegies for lost youth, passion and ease. At once graceful and economical, these lyrics offer bright glimpses of city and country, of travel and remembered haunts. Like the dreams of her title, they are like stories in miniature, deftly moving back and forth in time, lit with flashes of insight. Childhood anticipates future scars; middle age looks back to simpler ardor. Cohen uses a compact, elegant style to create a lucid world of longing. -Martha Hollander Winner Whitman Award under W. S. Merwin Lynn Cohen was nominated for the 2006 and 2010 Pushcart Prize for Poetry. She gave a scholarly paper at the Gerard Manley Hopkins Literary Festival in 2009 in Ireland. As a result of a grant proposal she wrote, the New York State Council for the Humanities awarded the North Sea Poetry Scene a mini-grant for its "Let's Talk Poetry 2008" series. She has spoken on the works of T. S. Eliot at a National MLA Conference and at local conferences on Christianity and Literature. She also has lectured on modern and post-modern literature, and she has given poetry readings in the United States and in Ireland. She was a student and mentee of Pulitzer Prize Winners Stephen Dunn and W. D. Snodgrass. She co-edited The North Sea Poetry Scene's LI Sounds 2007 Poetry Anthology and other poetry anthologies. Lynn teaches at Hofstra University and Suffolk Community College.

R2,025 Discovery Miles 20 250 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Disasters are defined as a 'crisis event in which the demands being placed on a human system, by the event, exceed the systems capacity to respond'.The disaster literature has generally focused at the individual level and fails to take into account the context in which individuals live and where the disaster occurred.Few studies utilize residents within a disaster community to define the factors that are relevant to their disaster experience especially in Australian settings. This book aims to understand disaster communities and what factors indicate a communities resilience. Results indicate the relative importance of self-efficacy to the experience of stress and growth in disasters and that different styles of coping are inextricably linked to each other.Contributions of this study indicate that for emergency management organizations there is no universal method of practice.Local communities need to be understood in terms of their contexts to effectively develop and implement prevention programs and aid resilience. This book will be useful for those in the emergency management field, social scientests and methodologists.

Learning Across the Early Childhood Curriculum (Hardcover, New): Lynn Cohen, Sandra Waite-Stupiansky Learning Across the Early Childhood Curriculum (Hardcover, New)
Lynn Cohen, Sandra Waite-Stupiansky
R1,799 Discovery Miles 17 990 Special order

Education, according to John Dewey, should be viewed as dynamic and ongoing with direct teaching of integrated content knowledge. This volume offers readers an examination of the content areas in early childhood curriculum that honor Dewey's belief in active, integrated learning. When young children learn in a way that is most natural to them, they unconsciously integrate subject areas into a complex whole based on their current interests. The ability to apply and integrate academic skills such as language arts, numeracy, scientific investigation, social studies, technology, and health and physical education is key to building capacity for future learning. Teachers who follow this method of teaching view curriculum as a fully spun web that incorporates a number of subject matter components at one time, and ensure that the content areas are taught. Topics addressed in this volume include: The role of STEM, teacher preparation, communication and technology.

R682 Discovery Miles 6 820 Special order

The Association for the Study of Play (TASP) (www.tasp.org) is the sponsor of volume twelve in the Play & Culture Studies series. TASP is a professional group of interdisciplinary researchers who study play. Polyphony, defined as having many tones or voices, was used by the Russian philosopher Mikhail Mikhailovich Bakhtin to describe the immense plurality of experiences in relationships. The chapters in volume 12 of Play & Culture Studies address the polyphony or many voices in the study of play from an interdisciplinary cadre of scholars in the fields of anthropology, education, psychology, linguistics, and history. In this time of globalization, hyper-capitalism, and discourses that disqualify children's play, we invite the reader to participate in diverse ways of thinking about play and pedagogy. To this end, Play, Volume 12 addresses research methodology, contemporary theories, technology, and advocacy. Applications to practice and policy implications are presented.

We know that human beings people these places, but they have scurried away, leaving behind nothing but desks, machines, instruments, walls, ceilings, floors, lighting the impersonal, neutral artifacts of modern existence. An air of claustrophobia hangs over everything: there is no way in and no way out of these stifling spaces, either physically or ideologically. We need a good deal of persuading that these extraordinary environments actually exist in the real world. But they do. And for thirty years the photographer Lynne Cohen has been searching them out and recording them. No Man's Land brings together for the first time more than 100 of the most powerful of these images in both duotone and color from the 1970s up to the present day. Cohen began as a sculptor, but in 1971 turned to photography. Her work has certain affinities with Marcel Duchamp's ready-mades in that she collects fragments of the real world photographically and turns them into found installations. Her photography should be appreciated alongside the work of her peers in the area of contemporary art and photography, such as Dieter Appelt, Andreas Gursky, Thomas Ruff, Cindy Sherman, Thomas Struth, and Jeff Wall. Cohen's photography has always been concerned with psychological, sociological, intellectual, and political artifice and her later images reveal a preoccupation with deception, manipulation, and control. No Man's Land includes a critique of Cohen's work by Ann Thomas, Curator of the Photographs Collection at the National Gallery of Canada; an interview with the photographer; and a preface by Pierre Theberge and by William A. Ewing, author of The Body and many other internationally renowned photography books.
