My Ancestors Were Rogues and Murderers( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was a PR coup that launched the animal rights movement onto the international stage. It's 1977 and Brian Davies, head of the International Fund for Animal Welfare, has brought Brigitte Bardot to Newfoundland to protest the seal hunt. The villains of the piece are the inhabitants of the island's northern outports, their image transmitted to the world as the epitome of brutality. My Ancestors Were Rogues and Murderers tells their story. In a thoughtful contribution to the debate on Canada's seal hunt, artist Anne Troake celebrates the unique culture of Newfoundland's outports. She explores the notions of ecology and conservation through the story of her extended family, descendants of 18th century settlers from the English West Country. In a society shaped by the environment and seasons, sealing became one of many activities that sustained them. Blending poetic ethnography with politics, Troake weaves her argument into a meditation on a resilient people and their special place in the world. A remarkable interview with her grandmother infuses the film with wry wisdom and a bright sense of life's possibilities

This book is a reflection on higher education and a personal memoir of Murray G. Ross, first president of York University (Ontario, Canada), and his role in the founding and shaping of that institution from 1960 to 1970. Parts 1 and 2 provide an intimate glimpse of the university which grew faster and with a more clearly defined mission than most, had more senior scholars per student that other institutions, and displayed several unique features. The first of the two sections reflects the first phase, the university's founding, a romantic idealistic time which lacked practicality. The four chapters of this section discuss early controversies with faculty, and relations with local and national politicians and universities. Part 2 describes a second stage when the university brought in experienced administrators and new professional faculties in the process of becoming more realistic and more progressive in viewing ways to deal with new pressures. These chapters cover the radical years of the late 1960s, relations with the Board of Directors, and selection of Ross's successor to the presidency. Part 3 offers a broader look at the transformations in higher education in the past 40 years and a forecast of what may happen in the next decade. (Jb)
