Critical Perspectives on Art History
Demonstrating that art history has significant connections to real life, this active and engaging survey introduces students to the complexity of issues and approaches that characterize the study of Western art history today. With readings from a diverse panel of informed and passionate writers, the anthology offers a unique multi-perspective approach—covering everything from the power of images to shape the way we know things, to the political and policy debates about the place of the arts in our society. Critical Perspectives helps students become active participants in a lively analysis of ideas and in the actual process of scholarship—engaging them in directed discussions and critical analysis—and clearly demonstrates that art history is a dynamic field of study, not a static set of facts or a universally agreed upon set of interpretations.

Speaking Volumes: Women, Reading, and Speech in the Age of Austen
First inspired by reading Pride and Prejudice aloud and discovering a totally new novel, Michaelson (literary studies, U. of Texas-Dallas) looks generally at the relationship between reading and speech in the late 18th century. She challenges the tradition that links the rise of the novel firmly to print culture and to silent and solitary reading, and the tendency in both the 18th and 20th centuries to define women's language as a coherent sociolect. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (www.barnesandnoble.com). More ...
Romanticism and the Materiality of Nature
In the spring of 2000 Associate Professor of English Onno Oerlemans published the book Romanticism and the Materiality of Nature. Given the current environmental concerns, it is not surprising to find literary critics and theorists revisiting the Romantic poets with ecological hindsight. In this timely study, Onno Oerlemans extends these current eco-critical views by synthesizing a range of viewpoints from the Romantic period. He explores not only the ideas of poets and artists, but also those of philosophers, scientists and explorers. More ...
Among Women: From the Homosocial to the Homoerotic in the Ancient World
Margaret Bundy Scott Professor of Comparative Literature Nancey Rabinowitz and Lisa Auanger are the editors of Among Women: From the Homosocial to the Homoerotic in the Ancient World. Women's and men's worlds were largely separate in ancient Mediterranean societies, and, in consequence, many women¹s deepest personal relationships were with other women. Yet relatively little scholarly or popular attention has focused on women¹s relationships in antiquity, in contrast to recent interest in the relationships between men in ancient Greece and Rome. The essays in this book seek to close this gap by exploring a wide variety of textual and archaeological evidence for women's homosocial and homoerotic relationships from prehistoric Greece to fifth-century CE Egypt. More ...

China in the World Market: Chinese Industry and International Sources of Reform in the Post-Mao Era
Thomas G. Moore '85 examines the role of the outside world as a source of change in post-Mao China. Based on extensive documentary and interview material, the book adds the Chinese case to a long tradition of country-based studies by political economists, historians, and area specialists that have chronicled the experiences of developing countries as they enter specific industrial markets in the world economy. This book will be timely and provocative reading for anyone concerned with the nature of China's deepening participation in the world economy and its consequences for the country's development prospects, internal reforms, and foreign policy.

Global Brains: Knowledge and Competencies for the 21st Century
Owing to the recent forces of globalization, the world is a very different place than it was just two decades ago. The world-wide movements toward trade deregulation, privatization, and the lowering of tariff barriers, coupled with the information revolution, has made obsolete many of the more traditional ways of thinking and behaving. If we are to succeed in this new, fast-paced, diverse, and complex global economy, we will need to equip ourselves with new skills and new understandings. We need to be more competent than ever before. But more than that, we need to develop a new mindset for this changing world, which Ferraro calls “global brains.” More ...
