The future of thinking : learning institutions in a digital age by Cathy N Davidson( )

14 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past two decades, the way we learn has changed dramatically. We have new sources of information and new ways to exchange and to interact with information. But our schools and the way we teach have remained largely the same for years, even centuries. What happens to traditional educational institutions when learning also takes place on a vast range of Internet sites, from Pokemon Web pages to Wikipedia? This report investigates how traditional learning institutions can become as innovative, flexible, robust, and collaborative as the best social networking sites. The authors propose an alternative definition of "institution" as a "mobilizing network"--Emphasizing its flexibility, the permeability of its boundaries, its interactive productivity, and its potential as a catalyst for change--and explore the implications for higher education. The Future of Thinking reports on innovative, virtual institutions. It also uses the idea of a virtual institution both as part of its subject matter and as part of its process: the first draft was hosted on a Web site for collaborative feedback and writing. The authors use this experiment in participatory writing as a test case for virtual institutions, learning institutions, and a new form of collaborative authorship. The finished version is still posted and open for comment. This book is the full-length report of the project, which was summarized in an earlier MacArthur volume, The Future of Learning Institutions in a Digital Age. The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Reports on Digital Media and Learning

Anatomy of racism by David Theo Goldberg( Book )

20 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and held by 993 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a growing recognition that racism, far from being an unvarying and monolithic attitude, comprises many different racisms.

Hodge); (7) "The Fact of Blackness" (Frantz Fanon); (8) "Bichon and the Blacks" (Roland Barthes); (9) "African Grammar" (Roland Barthes); (10) "What Celie Knows That You Should Know" (Barbara Christian); (11) "'I'm Down on Whores': Race and Gender in Victorian London" (Sander L. Gilman); (12) "'Ours to Jew or Die': Celine and the Categories of Anti-Semitism" (Julia Kristeva); (13) "Interrogating Identity: The Postcolonial Prerogative" (Homi K. Bhabha); (14) "Zionism from the Standpoint of Its Victims" (Edward W. Said); (15) "Racism and the Innocence of Law" (Peter Fitzpatrick); (16) "One Nation under a Groove: The Cultural Politics of 'Race' and Racism in Britain" (Paul Gilroy); (17) "Paradoxes of Universality" (Etienne Balibar); (18) "The Social Formation of Racist Discourse" (David Theo Goldberg); and (19) "Critical Remarks" (Henry Louis Gates, Jr.).

It demonstrates in action the rich interplay between gender and other markers of social position and (dis)privilege, such as race, class, ethnicity, and nationality. The contributions are heterogeneous, ranging from essay statements, even provocations, to state-of-the-art overviews. Leading experts in the field cover all the significant ideas of concern to Gender Studies, including the engagements and entanglements with Women's Studies and Masculinity Studies." "This is a Companion for readers, teachers, and students across the world. Students of feminist and gender theory - as well as scientists, social scientists, humanists, theorists, and cultural analysts of these subjects - will find this an enriching volume of original scholarship."--Jacket

The threat of race : reflections on racial neoliberalism by David Theo Goldberg( Book )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written by a renowned scholar of critical race theory, The Threat of Race explores how the concept of race has been historically produced and how it continues to be articulated, if often denied, in today's world. Charting race in all its exclusionary, humiliating, and violent expressions, this volume offers a new analytic for understanding this most insidious subject position." "From Western and Northern Europe, South Africa and Latin America, and from Israel and Palestine to the United States, The Threat of Race provides a new taxonomy for understanding the power and pervasiveness of race in the 21st century."--Jacket

Racial subjects : writing on race in America by David Theo Goldberg( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arguing that racism is best understood as exclusionary relations of power rather than simply as hateful expressions, David Theo Goldberg analyzes contemporary expressions of race and racism. He engages political economy, culture, and everyday material life, against a background analysis of profound demographic shifts and changing class formation and relations. Issues covered in Racial Subjects include the history of changing racial categories over the last two hundred years of U.S. census taking, multiculturalism, the experience of being racially mixed, the rise of new black public intellectuals, race and the law in the wake of the O.J. Simpson verdict, relations between blacks and Jews, and affirmative action

Between humanities and the digital by Patrik Svensson( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like most academic discourses, the Digital Humanities are a conversation in flux. Some would argue that the Digital Humanities are already a well-established field, pointing to the 20-year history of Humanities Computing. Others (me) see a new breed of academic with skills in both technology and the traditional humanities (the Platform Studies and Software Studies series), while others might indeed see this as a last gasp for the Modern Language Association's relevance. The point is that this is a conversation and, as such, various voices need to be heard. In David Goldberg and Patrik Svensson's Between Humanities and the Digital Age, more than 40 authors contribute to this discussion from a global, cross-disciplinary perspective. Describing the breadth and depth of how the humanities engage with the digital and information technology (including discipline-specific studies and perspectives, research infrastructure, innovative tools, creative expression and activist engagement), Between Humanities and the Digital 'demonstrates the diversity of research and theory building that lies between the existence of digital technologies and humanistic perspectives on knowledge generation'"--Provided by publisher

The future of learning institutions in a digital age by Cathy N Davidson( Book )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this report, Cathy Davidson and David Theo Goldberg focus on the potential for shared and interactive learning made possible by the Internet. They argue that the single most important characteristic of the Internet is its capacity for world-wide community and the limitless exchange of ideas. The Internet brings about a way of learning that is not new or revolutionary but is now the norm for today's graduating high school and college classes. It is for this reason that Davidson and Goldberg call on us to examine potential new models of digital learning and rethink our virtually enabled and enhanced learning institutions. This report is available in a free digital edition on the MIT Press website at John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Reports on Digital Media and Learning
Are we all postracial yet? by David Theo Goldberg( Book )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We hear much talk about the advent of a postracial age. The election of Barack Obama as President of the U.S. was held by many to be proof that we have once and for all moved beyond race. The Swedish government has even gone so far as to erase all references to race from its legislative documents. However, as Ferguson, MO, and countless social statistics show, beneath such claims lurk more sinister shadows of the racial everyday, institutional, and structural racisms persist and renew themselves beneath the polish of nonraciality. A conundrum lies at its very heart as seen when the election of a Black President was taken to be the pinnacle of postraciality. In this sparkling essay, David Theo Goldberg seeks to explain this conundrum, and reveals how the postracial is merely the afterlife of race, not its demise. Postraciality is the new logic of raciality."--Provided by publisher
