Little Bee ist 16 Jahre alt und stammt aus Afrika. In ihrer Heimat ist ihr Schreckliches zugestoßen, und seit zwei Jahren lebt sie in einem englischen Abschiebelager für Asylbewerber. Trotz allem ist sie ein Mensch voll Lebensfreude, Witz und Intelligenz. In England kennt sie außerhalb des Lagers nur zwei Menschen: Vor Jahren hat sie in Nigeria das Ehepaar Sarah und Andrew, die im englischen Kingston-upon-Thames ein privilegiertes Leben führen, kennengelernt. Ein furchtbares gemeinsames Erlebnis hat eine tragische Verbindung zwischen ihnen geschaffen. Als Little Bee aus dem Lager entlassen wird, ruft sie bei Sarah und Andrew an.

Book Security and Hospitality in Literature and Culture

Download or read book Security and Hospitality in Literature and Culture written by Jeffrey Clapp and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2015-10-05 with total page 286 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: With contributions from an international array of scholars, this volume opens a dialogue between discourses of security and hospitality in modern and contemporary literature and culture. The chapters in the volume span domestic spaces and detention camps, the experience of migration and the phenomena of tourism, interpersonal exchanges and cross-cultural interventions. The volume explores the multifarious ways in which subjects, citizens, communities, and states negotiate the mutual, and potentially exclusive, desires to secure themselves and offer hospitality to others. From the individual’s telephone and data, to the threshold of the family home, to the borders of the nation, sites of securitization confound hospitality’s injunction to openness, gifting, and refuge. In demonstrating an interrelation between ongoing discussions of hospitality and the intensifying attention to security, the book engages with a range of literary, cultural, and geopolitical contexts, drawing on work from other disciplines, including philosophy, political science, and sociology. Further, it defines a new interdisciplinary area of inquiry that resonates with current academic interests in world literature, transnationalism, and cosmopolitanism.

Book Education in for Socialism

Download or read book Education in for Socialism written by Tom G. Griffiths and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2017-10-02 with total page 164 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book re-examines aspects of historical socialism, and includes case studies of education within twenty-first century socialist and post-socialist contexts shaped by the trajectories of historical socialism. Through these case studies, contributions offer insights into key questions: How are education systems and student subjectivities shaped by post-socialist trajectories and current regional politics, economics and resistance movements? How do sedimented socialist discourses and geographies alter and contest the ‘neoliberal child’ and ‘childhood’ in post-socialist education? How have disjunctures between the rhetoric of historical Marxism-Leninism and the practices of educators, students and student political organizations played out under socialism, and what could we learn from that for our present? How much emancipatory potential is there in the theories and practices of (popular) education for combatting injustice in the absence of mass, revolutionary political parties? Above all, this volume affirms the need to move beyond simplistic accounts of historical socialism and post-socialist transitions. By exploring how socialist trajectories remain influential and have potential in our current contexts, this book contributes to the work of politically engaged educators working to re-imagine and reconstruct education. This book was originally published as a special issue of Globalisation, Societies and Education.

Book The Bees of Lake Balmybreeze

Download or read book The Bees of Lake Balmybreeze written by and published by MetaArt. This book was released on with total page 94 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The creatures that have suffered most from the interference in nature due to the unrestrained activities of modern man, are the bees. Their progressive disappearance affects us all closely because their contribution in nature and to agriculture, thanks to their role as pollinators, is crucial. No other creature can take their place. This story, told by a singing, woodland cricket, spotlights this extraordinary world that throughout the centuries has never stopped fascinating writers, poets, philosophers and children, of course. The role of the queen and that of the tireless workers, of the drones, the gathering of honey , the importance of propolis, and the magic of beeswax... are all topics illustrated in the story both poetically but also realistically. The intention is to touch readers of all ages with the sacred integrity of this creature and to inspire a genuine and more respectful interest in nature that can help us save the bees but also be our own salvation.

Book excerpt: Young Ye Zangming, Green Lotus Pearl. The strong wind blew against the willow tree, neutralizing the irreversible situation; the Fiery Blaze Needle pierced through the gate of rebirth with a faint glow. After entering the World Gate, a beautiful woman appeared within the world tomb. After experiencing life and death several times, she would obtain the benefits of being able to destroy the heavens. On the road of no return, brothers share the same heart, and the true and false know what a hero is. Outside of Cheng City, demons flew in a frenzy, and people kowtowed to become true kings. The Three Gates of Life and Death would swarm over the world, turning the sun and moon into a new song. The Cave of Samsara, surrounded by mountains, had smoke rising from all corners of the world, looked like a painting in the tenth generation, and within the compass formation, four ferocious beasts and a hundred thousand devil soldiers would be reduced to fragments after ten thousand years of enmity. Her beauty was old, and she had no desire for marriage. She could only look forward to dancing with the king for all eternity. Hand-to-hand desire, the crippled king, life does not love, just to join hands to advance the new article. Communicator 476311286 [Wrap]
