Service Learning and Literary Studies in English
$15.30 new/used

Service learning can help students develop a sense of civic responsibility and commitment, often while addressing pressing community needs. One goal of literary studies is to understand the ethical dimensions of the world, and thus service learning, by broadening the environments students consider, is well suited to the literature classroom. Whether through a public literacy project that demonstrates the relevance of literary study or community-based research that brings literary theory to life, student collaboration with community partners brings social awareness to the study of literary texts and helps students and teachers engage literature in new ways.

In their introduction, the volume editors trace the history of service learning in the United States, including the debate about literature's role, and outline the best practices of the pedagogy. The essays that follow cover American, English, and world literature; creative nonfiction and memoir; literature-based writing; and cross-disciplinary studies. Contributors describe a wide variety of service-learning projects, including a course on the Harlem Renaissance in which students lead a community writing workshop, an English capstone seminar in which seniors design programs for public libraries, and a creative nonfiction course in which first-year students work with elderly community members to craft life narratives. The volume closes with a list of resources for practitioners and researchers in the field.

Conspiracy of Dreamers: Capitalism at the Service of Humanity
by M. Renee Orth, Paul J. Behrman
$6.99 new/used

Just when the world imagined by dreamers throughout human history is within reach, it is slipping through our fingers. Environmental degradation, climate change, the spread of nuclear weapons, and population growth pose urgent risks to human survival. Meanwhile, an epidemic of frustration and alienation has given rise to the Tea Party and the Occupy Wall Street movements. Protesters from opposite ends of the political spectrum are reacting to the same underlying problem: power is concentrated in the hands of an elite group of politicians, bankers, executives, and wealthy individuals. Both movements are looking mainly to government for solutions (though in very different ways), but government is the wrong tool for the job. Conspiracy of Dreamers transcends the chasm engulfing American politics by offering sustainable, compassionate and systemic solutions that shrink government while returning power to We the People.

With warmth and humor, critical acumen and ethical insight, Health Humanities Reader truly humanizes the field of medicine. Its accessible language and broad scope offers something for everyone from the experienced medical professional to a reader interested in health and illness.

The Humanity of Justice
by Burke StrunskySearch for Burke Strunsky

Against the backdrop of his most haunting, high-profile murder and child abuse cases, a veteran prosecutor goes beyond an insider?s reflection to shine a light on the humanlike qualities personified in the U.S. criminal justice system and what this means for our future.

The Humanity of Justice is a procedural true-crime book told through the eyes and heart of a veteran criminal prosecutor who cares about the people he meets and their life-altering circumstances. Burke E. Strunsky, a senior deputy district attorney in southern California, takes the reader inside the courtroom for some of the most haunting criminal cases in the state as well as the nation, including: a highly respected church leader who brutally murders his wife for the insurance money while their baby sleeps peacefully in another room; a twisted father who sexually molests his daughter?s own friends at her slumber parties; a former police chief who drowns his wife of thirty years in their backyard spa; and a young man who sadistically tortures and kills a helpless three-year-old boy, yet manages to dodge the death penalty.

Strunsky?s own impassioned social and moral commentary is woven throughout this thought-provoking book on issues significant to the world of criminal justice. Even in the midst of the darkest stories, the voices and courage of the victims and those who love them will leave the reader touched and inspired.

100% of the proceeds from this book will be donated to The Humanity of Justice Foundation, a non-profit organization, to help prevent child abuse and neglect.
