Creating Worldviews : Metaphor, Ideology and Language by James Underhill( )

1 edition published in 2022 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Encouraging readers to reflect upon language and the role metaphor plays in patterning ideas and thought, this book first offers a critical introduction to metaphor theory as it has emerged over the past thirty years in the States. James W. Underhill then widens the scope of metaphor theory by investigating not only the worldview our language offers us, but also the worldviews which we adapt in our own ideological and personal interpretations of the world.This book explores new avenues in metaphor theory in the work of contemporary French, German and Czech scholars. Detailed case studies marry metaphor theory with discourse analysis in order to investigate the ways the Czech language was reshaped by communist discourse, and the way fascism emerged in the German language. The third case study turns metaphor theory on its head: instead of looking for metaphors in language, it describes the way language systems (French et English) are understood in terms of metaphorically-framed concepts evolving over time.Including a multilingual glossary of key terms and concepts, this is an ideal volume for anyone new to the topic, as well as those already interested in metaphor theory and the analysis of worldviews
Ansel Adams : the American landscape( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This splendid reappraisal of the life and work of one of America's greatest photographers presents close to one hundred photographs from every stage of his long and productive career. ... Ansel Adams: The American Landscape draws upon the work of experts in the field of photography and art history to address the various aspects of the photographer's work. Essays delineate the connections between his biography and artistic output, his technical achievements and innovations, and his place within the modernist currents of twentieth century art. A special section is reserved for his work on the Mural Project. Undertaken at the behest of the Department of the Interior, it became a photographic journey through the National Park Service. A final section looks at Adams's work documenting the life of Japanese internees during World War II at the Manzanar Relocation Center. Here the story is told in Adams's own words. Throughout, the text attempts to elucidate and contextualize the photography."--The book jacket

The psychological impact of music workshops on immigration detainees by James Underhill( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The difficult process of acculturation with which refugees are faced after displacement following war and gross human rights abuses is a significant problem at both the individual and societal level. As a result of the high incidence of prolonged and repeated pre-migration traumas and post-migration stressors, refugees are at an increased risk of developing a wide range of mental health problems. This thesis examines interventions for refugees, asylum seekers and internally displaced persons that use innovative approaches to promote psychosocial wellbeing and aid acculturation. Part One is a literature review of the effectiveness of treatments for refugees, other than trauma-focused therapies, that target the broad range of mental health problems and difficulties with everyday functioning with which they present. Part Two is an empirical study of group music-making workshops run for immigration detainees in Immigration Removal Centres. The workshops aim to foster self-expression and autonomy in detainees and culminate in the production of original music that is either shared with other detainees through performances or recorded and shared with community groups. Applied ethnography was used to investigate whether the workshops had any short and/or long-term effect on participants' psychological wellbeing, and the mechanism through which this effect was enabled. Finally, Part Three is a reflection on the research process and discusses the considerations and compromises made to conduct exploratory research in complex settings
