Into the UnknownFrom $59.95
Development is about change, and lives immersed in researching international development should be prepared for exploration, for discovering the unexpected, and for questioning the direction that development is taking. In the opening part of this book, Robert Chambers reflects on experiences in his own life, including his early career, participation in the World Banks Voices of the Poor project and work with the Indian Government on canal irrigation, which led him to examine personal biases and predispositions, and he challenges readers to examine the pervasive significance of power in forming and framing knowledge. Into the Unknown then reflects on the journey of learning, and encourages readers to learn from observation, curiosity, critical feedback, play and fun. Participatory workshops have been the source of much enjoyable and surprising learning, and they have themselves evolved in unexpected directions. Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) and Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) are two movements that have benefited from sharing practice, innovations and experience through participatory workshops.This book includes 21 tips on how to lead into such workshops and 21 tips on how to convene workshops that can co-generate knowledge and have an influence. Finally, the author asks whether the new dual realities - virtual and physical - are getting out of balance - and encourages readers to explore through experiential learning in the physical and social world. Into the Unknown will be of interest to development professionals, including academics, students, NGO workers and the staff of international agencies.

Manual of Museum ExhibitionsFrom $225.5
All museum activities converge in the public forum of the exhibition - regardless of whether the exhibit is held in the physical museum or is on the Web. Since the first edition of this book in 2002, there has been a world-wide explosion of new galleries and exhibition halls, and new ideas about how exhibitions should look and communicate. The definition of what an exhibition is has changed as exhibitions can now be virtual; non-traditional migratory and pop-up spaces play host to temporary displays; social media has created amazing opportunities for participatory engagement and shifted authority away from experts to the public; and as time-constrained audiences demand more dynamic, interactive, and mobile applications, museum leadership, managers, staff, and designers are rising to these challenges in innovative ways. Drawing on years of experience and top-flight expertise, Barry Lord and Maria Piacente detail the exhibition process in a straightforward way that can be easily adapted by institutions of any size. They explore the exhibition development process in greater detail, providing the technical and practical methodologies museum professionals need today.Theyve added new features and expanded chapters on project management, financial planning and interactive multimedia while retaining the essential content related to interpretive planning, curatorship, and roles and responsibilities. This second edition of the standby Manual of Museum Exhibitions is arranged in four parts: *Why - Covering the purpose of exhibits, where exhibit ideas come from, and how to measure success *Where - Covering facilities and spaces, going into details including security and interactive spaces *What - A look at both permanent collection displays and non-collection displays as well as virtual, participatory, temporary, travelling displays and retail sales. *How - Who is involved, plan

What Every Library Director Should KnowFrom $71.95
Most graduate programs offer a course in the management of a library. These courses, cover budgeting, supervising, marketing, providing services and other necessary functions and their related management concepts. Such courses are critical in giving beginning librarians the grounding in the study of management. However, anyone who has ever held any kind of management position, such as managing a program, directing a grant or running the entire library, can tell you that understanding the basics of management is not enough to be successful on the job. Not only do we need to continue our study of management but we also need to understand the unwritten rules, the unwritten strategies, and the unwritten wisdom which is either gained on the job, learned by observing others, or, if the librarian is very fortunate, taught by a mentor. Sometimes this knowledge, finally gained, comes at too high a price or is learned too late. A career inexplicably stalled, a desired position not gained, the failure to thrive in a current position can leave us puzzled, confused and hurt. After all, we worked hard every day.Every day, we concentrated on the job often sacrificing time with family and friends. What went wrong? These are the issues answered in this book. This is not a conventional management text. You will not get, for example, the history of management, the basics of budgeting or personnel and labor laws. Instead the focus is on nuances of behavior, political strategies, common wisdom, mentor-like advice, and the subtle codes, which, when paired with other management skills, will bring increased success on the job and throughout your career. It does not matter what type of library you are in-management is management, wisdom is wisdom. What Every Library Director Should Know is the insiders view of vital actions, behaviors and strategies to succeed in every type of library. The co
Rhetoric in the FleshFrom $238.5
Rhetoric in the Flesh is the first book-length ethnographic study of the gross anatomy lab to explain how rhetorical discourses, multimodal displays, and embodied practices facilitate learning and technical expertise and how they shape participants perceptions of the human body. By investigating the role that discourses, displays, and human bodies play in the training and socialization of medical students, T. Kenny Fountain contributes to our theoretical and practical understanding of the social factors that make rhetoric possible and material in technical domains. Thus, the book also explains how these displays, discourses, and practices lead to the trained perspective necessary for expertise. This trained vision is constructed over time through what Fountain terms embodied rhetorical action, an intertwining of body-object-environment that undergirds all scientific, medical, and technical work.This book will be valuable for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in technical and professional communication (technical communication theory and practice, visual or multimodal communication, medical technical communication) and rhetorical studies, including visual rhetoric, rhetoric of science, medical rhetoric, material rhetoric and embodiment, and ethnographic approaches to rhetoric.
