As people are living longer on average than ever before, the number of those with dementia will increase. Because many will live a considerable time at home with their diagnosis, we need to know more about the ways people can adapt to and learn to live with dementia in their everyday lives. Lars-Christer Hydén argues in this book that to do so will involve re-imagining what dementia really is and what it can mean to the afflicted and their loved ones. One of the most important everyday opportunities for sharing experiences is the simple act of storytelling. But when someone close to you gradually loses the ability to tell stories and cherish the shared history you have together, this is seen as a threat to the relationship, to the feeling of belonging together, and to the identity of the person diagnosed. Therefore, learning about how people with dementia can participate in storytelling along with their families and friends helps to sustain those relationships and identities. In Entangled Narratives, Hydén not only emphasizes the possibilities that are inherent in collaborative storytelling, but instructs professionals and otherwise healthy relatives to learn how to effectively listen and, ultimately, re-imagine their patients and loved ones as collaborative meaning-makers in their lives.

Because evolutionary nature can be seen only through the product of evolution - the human eye - the observer must always be aware of the physical limitations inherent in the act of perception. Krasner's study is an exploration of how Charles Darwin's representational techniques, intended to emphasize the spatial and temporal limitations besetting the human observer without diminishing the grand scheme of evolutionary nature, transformed his opulently "entangled" nature into a formless, psychologically interior landscape. Evolutionary nature's abundance and variety required Darwin and the turn-of-the-century British nature writers who followed him to portray the world as though seen through a physiologically limited, human eye. Investigating the shift from Victorian to modernist sensibilities in the context of evolutionary biology and perceptual theory, Krasner shows that, while profoundly attentive to landscape and biology, nature writers chose a mode of representing nature based on visual perception that led them toward a more abstract and psychological portrayal of natural landscapes. Using the visual perception theories of Berkeley, Hamilton, Brewster, Koffka, and James, Krasner investigates the ways in which Thomas Hardy, Joseph Conrad, and D.H. Lawrence, as well as other naturalists and nature writers, came to portray nature as the locus of optical illusion and visual failure. Narrative portrayals of nature become narrative portrayals of the perception of nature in which the physiological limitations of the human eye determine the structure of the representation. Bringing together literary, scientific, and popular texts, Krasner establishes the extent of Darwin's impact on theEnglish literary tradition.

Drawing on Nabokov's unpublished manuscripts and letters, Shrayer analyzes the paradigms of Nabokov's poetics and tests them in studies of major stories such as "Spring in Fialta" and "Cloud, Castle, Lake." He investigates Nabokov's dialogue with Chekhov and his rivalry with Bunin over such issues as the use of narrative closure and the nature of love. This in-depth analysis places Nabokov's short fiction in the main line of his bilingual and bicultural writing career. Through references to all of Nabokov's stories, as well as to many novels and discursive writings, from the early emigre works of the 1920s to the late American works of the 1970s, Shrayer delineates the principal historical and cultural contexts that shaped Nabokov's development. Most importantly, he reveals the metaphysical, ethical, and aesthetic concerns that shaped one of the most significant bodies of modern fiction.

Fixed Narratives and Entangled Categorizations Educational Problematizations in Times of Politicized and Stratified Migration

Abstract: Western European migration and citizenship regimes have undergone profound transformations over the past decades. The massive politicization and stratification of migration are key features of these dynamics. Focusing on the case of Germany, this article investigates how these developments affect logics of educational practice. It is argued that teachers, faced with increasingly complex and uncertain situations, systematically draw on categories that combine political and educational logics. These "entangled categories" do hardly allow to unravel the complex configurations currently at stake at the intersection of migration and education. A secondary analysis of TIMSS-2015 data is performed to substantiate the article's core hypothesis: these forms of categorization have crystallized into patterns of educational problematization that couple perceptions of educational challenges, professional self-images, and didactic approaches. These fixed narratives disproportionally affect migra

This book offers a comparative analysis of the Canadian and American health care systems, and it also explicates and criticizes both Norman Daniels' fair equality of opportunity argument for a right to health care and Allan Buchanon's enforced beneficence argument for a right to a decent minimum of health care. Cust advances an argument, based on David Gauthier's Morals by Agreement, that people have a right to a just minimum of health care. The significance of Cust's book is that the main argument is based on four important notions central to contemporary social, moral, and political theory: namely, the notions of liberty, equality, consent, and mutual advantage.
