Gender, conflict, and peacebuilding state of the field and lessons learned from USIP grantmaking by Kimberly Susan Theidon ( )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report, the result of an initiative to reflect on developments in areas where USIP grantmaking has been concentrated, focuses on gender, which has been incorporated into more than one hundred USIP grant-funded projects to date. The Praxis Institute for Social Justice was commissioned to review the state of the field of gender, conflict, and peacebuilding, to identify lessons learned, and to contemplate future directions of work. The analysis describes how this field emerged, became institutionalized in law, policy, and practice, and has been studied in academic research. Both important progress and significant gaps are identified in the understanding and awareness of the gendered dimensions of conflict and its legacies. A parallel examination of USIP grantmaking highlights notable contributions to the field, as well as shortcomings in the extent of attention and impact

Elizabeth Murray by Robert Storr ( Book )
8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Elizabeth Murray has radically altered the structure of Modernist painting. Her shaped and constructed canvases, often topologically modeled in three dimensions or fitted together out of multiple jigsaw-like parts, treat figure and ground in unprecedented ways, giving the elastic shapes of classic Surrealism a space in their own image. The alternatively comfortable and cataclysmic world that her images depict would crack irreveocably if it followed Euclidean logic; instead, it constantly metamorphoses under stress. With a chaptered essay by Robert Storr, plate section, an in-depth interview, the book will explore Murray's relation to artists such as Joan Miro, Stuart Davis, Claes Oldenburg and Frank Stella, as well as to the mainstream and opened up options for rising generations. This book accompanies ths most detailed examination of Murray's art yet mounted, showing its development from Pop-oriented reliefs in the 1960s to the extraordinary volumetric of her recent work
