Joseph Conrad and popular culture by Stephen Donovan( Book )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 261 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 Drawing on previously unpublished images and archival materials as diverse as Bovril advertisements and spirit photographs, this groundbreaking study reveals popular culture as a key historical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

Secret commissions : an anthology of Victorian investigative journalism( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together nineteen key documents of Victorian investigative journalism. Their authors range from well-known writers such as Charles Dickens, Henry Mayhew, and W.T. Stead to now-forgotten names such as Hugh Shimmin, Elizabeth Banks, and Olive Malvery. Collectively, they show how unsparing descriptions of social injustice became regular features of English journalism long before the advent of American-style "muckraking." The reports address topics as varied as child abuse, animal cruelty, juvenile prostitution, sweat-shops, slums, gypsies, abortion, infanticide, and other controversial social issues. The collection features detailed chapter introductions, original illustrations, a historical overview of investigative reporting in the nineteenth-century press, and suggestions for further reading

Writing for earth scientists : 52 lessons in academic publishing by Stephen K Donovan( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The time has come. You are an Earth scientist. You've spent weeks, months, years working on this project - now is the time to pull it together for publication. You might be writing an undergraduate or graduate thesis, a research paper for a leading journal, a note for the newsletter of the local amateur scientific society, a book review or an abstract for a specialist geological conference. How do you make the transition from promising unpublished researcher to established academic author' Of course, the phrase 'academic publishing' covers a multitude of sins; monographs, research papers, book reviews, conference abstracts or whatever each requires a different approach. You have to decide what it is you are going to write and where to publish it. There are co-authors, supervisors of your degree, peer reviewers and editors to deal with on the way. But the only way to write like an academic is to write like an academic...'here do you start' You could do much worse than start here. There are many books on how to write and be published aimed at research students and other aspiring academics. Many of these are readable, comprehensive and provide good advice. This book is composed of numerous short chapters on this subject, all directly relevant to one or more aspects of academic publishing and aimed particularly at the Earth scientists in the broadest sense. Geologists will be encouraged to use the book as much as a reference as a reader, 'dipping in' to the chapters that contain relevant tips, hints and comments to enable them to improve the paper that they are currently writing. The book is intended to be informative, readable and, above all, of practical application for all readers. In summary, the volume will be a readable compilation investigating many facets of academic publishing relevant to the Earth sciences. It will be of particular interest to postgraduate students, postdocs and new academics

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)

Long daze at Long Binh 24th evacuation hospital south Vietnam, 1966-68 : the humorous adventures of two Wisconsin draftees trained as combat medics and sent off to set up a field hospital in South Vietnam by Stephen Donovan( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

During their 16 months with the 24th Evac Hospital, Army medics Fred Borchardt and Steve Donovan managed to perform the duties of more than a dozen different military occupations ranging all the way from hospital orderly to construction worker to sign painter to prisoner guard to cement finisher to jeep driver to bartender to litter bearer to medical records clerk to civilian personnel specialist. Whatever Uncle Sam needed at the time, Fred and Steve were there to answer the call while the war waged on just a few miles away. Never a dull moment, as they say. (Well okay, there might have been a few now and then, but bartender? In a combat zone?) If you were one of the more than two million Americans who spent a year in Vietnam without ever seeing any actual combat, or if you've ever wondered what life was like for those folks, living in a war zone with no front lines and no clear distinctions between friend and foe, then you should find this book informative, entertaining and more than just a little bit funny
