Campbell's scoop : reflections on young adult literature by Patricia J Campbell( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This resource represents the accumulated wisdom of a veteran librarian, author, speaker, critic, and pioneer of young adult services. Selected from several sources over many years, these essays and articles present a broad collection of critical writing. The articles are grouped into categories that include "How We Got Here," "Trends and Tendencies," "Defining YA," and "Censorship Near and Far." From a professional perspective that spans 40 years, Campbell weighs in on the history of YA, groundbreaking changes in the genre, and the shifting edges and boundaries of YA literature over time. Articles in the "Inside ALA" section give the reader an insider's view of the national organization and the realities of committee work. Included are analyses of such groundbreaking works as Maus (Pantheon), Monster (Amistad, 1999), The Giver (Delacorte Books for Young Readers, 1993), The Chocolate War (Laurel Leaf, 1974), and The Outsiders (Viking Press,1967). --publisher's description
Spirituality in young adult literature : the last taboo by Patricia J Campbell( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a time when almost any gritty topic can be featured in a young adult novel, there is one subject that is avoided by writers and publishers. Faith and belief in God seldom appear in traditional form in novels for teens. The lack of such ideas in mainstream adolescent literature can be interpreted by teens to mean that these matters are not important. Yet a significant part of growing up is struggling with issues of spirituality. The underlying problem, of course, is that there are so few writers who are willing to talk to teenagers about God, even indirectly, or who themselves have the religious literacy for the task. In this volume, Patty Campbell examines not only realistic fiction, but young adult literature that deals with mysticism, apocalyptical end times, and even YA novels that depict the Divine Encounter. Campbell maintains that fantasy works are inherently spiritual, because the plots nearly always progress toward a showdown between good and evil. As such, the author surmises that the popularity of fantasy among teens may represent their interest in the mystical dimensions of faith and the otherworldly. Campbell examines works of fiction that express perspectives from Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Sikhism. YA novelist Chris Crowe provides a chapter on Mormon values and Mormon YA authors and how their novels integrate those values into their books. By looking at how spirituality is represented in novels aimed at teens, this book asks what progress, if any, has been made in slaying the taboo. Although most of the books discussed in this study are recent, an appendix lists YA books from 1967 to the present that have dealt with issues of faith

Art and time( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What then is time?' wrote St Augustine. 'If no one asks me I know. If I wish to explain it, I know not'. Time is a challenging concept for philosophers, but no less so for the artist, critic, and art theorist. The contributors to this collection of essays, who represent humanities disciplines from universities worldwide, have taken up this challenge, providing a range of perspectives on the topic 'Art and Time'. Some engage with the broad philosophical issues at stake, some with the meaning of time for particular artists or works of art - from Fra Angelico to Frank Lloyd Wright, from Hamlet to The Lord of the Rings, from Renaissance dance to rave music. All seek an answer to Augustine's question when we ask it in the context of artistic endeavour. As Derek Allan writes in the Introduction to this collection, 'Surprisingly little has been written about Art and Time in recent times, even in those academic disciplines such as the philosophy of art in which one would most expect to encounter it'. The topic is, however, of increasing interest and this volume is a response to that development
The collected wit and wisdom of Dorothy M. Broderick : the VOYA editorials and more by Dorothy M Broderick( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dorothy Broderick was a seminal figure in the development of library services, particularly services to young adults and teens, in the second half of the twentieth century. She was an articulate advocate for intellectual freedom and fought against censorship. As editor-in-chief of Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) magazine, which she co-founded with Mary K Chelton, Broderick wrote some 100 editorials, a mix of incisive analysis or arguments and trenchant commentary often punctuated with subtle and not-so subtle humor. The editorials, collected here for the first time, are complimented by original essays about Broderick by leading professionals. Dr. Betty Turock addresses Broderick{u2019}s longevity as a fearless, irresistible, and challenging teacher chiefly of professional young adult librarians. Patty Campbell draws upon scores of letters and documents to create a portrait of Broderick as a challenging and humorous personality and defender of the intellectual freedom of youth and their access to library services. The book{u2019}s editor, Dr. Anthony Bernier, introduces Broderick as a pivotal historical figure in youth services and LIS in general {u2013} one emerging out of LIS{u2019}s historical commitments to institutional agendas and into a vision of the library as better connected to contemporary cultural affairs with commitments to the public{u2019}s desires

"In this study of the theory and practice of four Canadian socialists whose names are known but whose lives, thoughts, feelings, and political beliefs are not, Peter Campbell explores the ideas and actions of four individuals - Ernest Winch, Bill Pritchard, Arthur Mould, and Bob Russell - who made major contributions to the history of the Canadian left. Campbell traces their childhoods in late Victorian England and Scotland, explores their early political and religious influences, details their involvement in the labour and socialist movements of Canada, and assesses their legacy to the Canadian working class."--Jacket
