Joseph Conrad and popular culture by Stephen Donovan( Book )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joseph Conrad and Popular Culture offers a provocative alternative to the view of Joseph Conrad as far removed from the world of Victorian and Edwardian popular culture. From a prototype video arcade in wartime Vienna to the tourist hordes of Capri to the driving seat of a speeding Cadillac in Kent, it shows how Conrad's exposure to the experiences and artefacts of modern popular culture exercised a formative influence on his fiction. Through detailed readings of The Nigger of the 'Narcissus', Typhoon, The Secret Agent, Lord Jim and Chance, it recovers the full significance of panoramas, moving pictures, magic lantern effects, waxwork tableaux, Thomas Cook's globetrotters, and the new sport of hiking for some of Conrad's best-known works. Drawing on previously unpublished images and archival materials as diverse as Bovril advertisements and spirit photographs, this groundbreaking study reveals popular culture as a key historical context for this major Modernist writer and will be of interest to all students, scholars and enthusiasts of Conrad."--Jacket

Un significado global para el cientifico biomedico o bioanalista by Stephen Donovan( )

1 edition published in 2003 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

El rol tradicional del Cientifico Biomedico o del Bioanalista en el estudio de las patologias ha tomado una definicion mas amplia esta es generada, al menos en parte, por una demarcacacion entre las profesiones no muy clara entre: Los Cientificos Biomedicos o Bioanalistas, los Cientificos Clinicos o Medicos y los Oficiales Medicos e Investigadores Academicos o Universitarios. Resulta apropiado examinar nuevamente estas definiciones con la finalidad de apreciar completamente el rol fundamental jugado por el Cientifico Biomedico o Bioanalista en el tratamiento de la enfermedad y en el avance del conocimiento cientifico. El rol del Cientifico Biomedico o Bioanalista, el cual esta en expancion, en el estudio de la patologia, particularmente en Europa, ha continuado aumentando la contribucion de este importante grupo profesional, como proveedores de los servicios esenciales en patologia y como directores en la investigacion de nuevas y mas eficientes tecnicas para el diagnostico y tratamiento de las enfermedades humanas. Sin embargo, es tambien importante reconocer que dentro de la nueva definicion del Cientifico Biomedico o Bioanalista hay que incluir la contribucion significativa que estos profesionales han hecho en el campo de la investigacion academica pura. Ciertamente, la vertiginosa carrera para secuenciar y finalmente interpretar el genoma humano esta conduciendo la demanda de investigadores en ciertas areas clave de las ciencias de la vida y aqui yace al menos uno de los nichos importantes para el Cientifico Biomedico o Bioanalista. Es importante explorar tambien el rol del Cientifico Biomedico o Bioanalista en areas de la Farmacia, Farmacologia, Biologia Molecular y Biofisica y mas recientemente en el area de la Bioinformatica y de la Informacion Tecnologica, cuyos temas todos apuntan hacia la Ciencia de la Salud en el sentido mas amplio. La diversidad en la experiencia requerida por el Cientifico Biomedico o Bioanalisis a los cambios en el manejo de los servicios de patologia, esto particularmente en el Reino Unido, ha demandado que los educadores re-evaluen tanto el contenido como el modo de impartir sus programas de estudios para poder alcanzar las expectativas de los futuros graduandos y que estos profesionales sean apropiados para los requerimientos que hace la comunidad cientifica. No hay duda de que la ensenanza de la Ciencia Biomedica o del Bioanalisis siempre ha logrado satisfacer las demandas de un ambiente profesional cambiante(AU)
Learning from academically optimistic teachers : supporting teacher academic optimism by Stephen Donovan( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Educational researchers have identified school and teacher characteristics that positively affect student outcomes. One of these characteristics is teacher academic optimism. To bolster teacher effectiveness and student success, it is important to discover how to support this teacher academic optimism in teachers. Previous research on this latent construct has been exclusively quantitative; as a result, this thesis seeks to expand the understanding of this teacher level characteristic by using a qualitative research design that is focused less with standardized measures and predetermined response categories and more on an emerging approach to inquiry (Patton, 2002). Specifically, this thesis seeks to learn from academically optimistic teachers, or teachers who score high in academic optimism, as to how they support and develop their teacher academic optimism. This doctoral thesis is a qualitative interview study. Four elementary and middle school teachers in the researcher's district were identified as academically optimistic using the Teacher Academic Optimism Scale for Elementary Teachers and the Teacher Academic Optimism Scale for Secondary Teachers. Once the academically optimistic teachers were identified and agreed to participate, data was collected and analyzed in the form of interviews and memos. Patterns and themes were established in order to identify the means by which academically optimistic teachers support their teacher academic optimism. The data suggests that in order to support teacher academic optimism in this school district, teachers should be knowledgeable about, and utilize, many different practices and hold various beliefs in order to adapt to meet various situations. The data suggests that the academically optimistic teachers are mostly optimistic, humanistic, and student-centered; however, it also suggests that, at times, the opposite is necessary. This finding is consistent with learned optimism, a theoretical underpinning of teacher academic optimism. Based on the data, specific recommendations for the development of certain beliefs and practices in teachers are suggested in order to support teacher academic optimism in the district. Recommendations for further research on teacher academic optimism are also included
