Karagiozis : culture & comedy in Greek puppet theater by Linda S Myrsiades( )

7 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and held by 872 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karagiozis -- a form of comic folk drama employing stock puppet figures -- was immensely popular in Greece until recent years, when newer forms of entertainment have virtually eclipsed it. Derived from ancient Byzantine and Greek sources, it takes its name from the principal puppet character, the clever, humpbacked fool-hero Karagiozis, who appears in many guises, surrounded by a cast of folk caricatures from all walks of life. Kostas and Linda Myrsiades present here a tripartite view of Karagiozis: a translation of a typical text taken directly from a live performance

Brings together established scholars and emerging voices from diverse backgrounds to show how politics and theory can and do affect the most pressing problems confronting the contemporary teacher of literature.

Reading Homer : film and text( )

13 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These nine new essays on Homer's epics deal not only with major Homeric themes of time (honor), kleos (fame), geras (rewards), the psychology of Homeric warriors, and the re-evaluation of type scenes, but also with Homer's influence on contemporary film. Following the introduction and an essay which sets the historical background for the epics, four essays are devoted to fresh analysis of key passages and themes while another four turn to a discussion of the film Troy and Homer's influence on two other genres of American cinema

Beyond the corporate university : culture and pedagogy in the new millennium by Henry A., Ed Giroux( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A decade of budgetary, policy, and ideological contention has resulted in American universities being run by management models. As corporate culture increasingly invades educational and other public sectors, the nation is seen by some to have lost its vision of the public good and the necessary components of a vital democracy. The scholars who contribute to this work seek to redress these trends. They aim to show how and why the critical functions of a democratically informed civic education should become the core of the university's mission

Resistance theater in Greece under Nazi occupation was organized by the political and armed wings of the EAM/ELAS resistance movement and operated in the mountains of what was called Free Greece. This work introduces the cultural resistance of over 1000 cultural teams across Greece that mounted over 22,000 performances from 1943-44 and the work of three subsidized troupes that toured the mountain villages and armed camps of Epirus, Thessaly, and western Macedonia. It targets the history of the largest of those troupes and its performances that constitute the largest single source of resistance texts in Free Greece
