6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a tribute to the life and work of Hazel Rowley, internationally acclaimed biographer who died unexpectedly in March 2011.

If I say if : the poems and short stories of Boris Vian by Boris Vian( )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Boris Vian is a rare phenomenon. Nothing short of a national treasure in France, he is hardly known overseas. In his lifetime, he divided literary opinion with masterpieces that failed to sell and best sellers that caused outrage, trials and even deaths, including his own. As an impresario, he became the figurehead of the jazz scene that marked the French left bank at the end of the Second World War and was responsible for bringing Duke Ellington and Miles Davis to France. As a musician, he played his trumpet against the advice of cardiologists, sang pacifist songs before audiences of outraged patriots and, in passing, created French rock 'n' roll. Posthumously, he became known for his theatre, film scripts and poetry as well as for his novels. And in May '68 he became a revolutionary icon. In two posthumously published collections of short stories, translated for the first time in English in this volume, the France of Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir is seen through Vian's idiosyncratic and often rather madcap lens. And alongside them there is another voice entirely, a side of Vian that blends his dry irony with deep, at times startling, emotion. His poems, again published in English here for the first time, give a counter-point to the public figure loved throughout France but never quite admitted into the Pantheon of her great artists. For those who may have read L'Ecume des jours or J'irai cracher sur vos tombes, or heard someone singing "Le Deserteur" on the Paris Metro, or for those who are discovering him for the first time, here are both sides of the incomparable and never quite self-coinciding Boris Vian
A history of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Adelaide 1876-2012 : celebrating 125 years of the Faculty of Arts by Carl Crossin( )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even though the BA was the first degree it was not until eight years later in 1887 that the Faculty of Arts was inaugurated. In the first 50 years of the University's existence, less than ten BA students graduated each year. At the start of the 21st century this figure had climbed to over 300 BA graduates per year but what is interesting is that by 2010 the number of BA graduates was equalled by the number of graduates from separate named degrees within the Faculty plus 70 Music graduates
Explorations and encounters in French by F. J Fornasiero( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With a title derived literally from the explorations of the French in the Pacific and metaphorically from classroom encounters with another culture - both of which form important subsections to the volume - Explorations and Encounters in French actively seeks to unite those fields of enquiry sometimes seen as separate, namely, culture and language. The essays selected for inclusion in Explorations and Encounters in French bring together many of the current research strands in French Studies today, tapping into current pedagogical trends, analysing contemporary events in France, examining the Franco-Australian past, while reviewing teaching practice and the culture of teaching. Collectively, the essays reflect the common engagement with language, culture and society that characterizes the community of French teachers and scholars in Australia and abroad."--University of Adelaide Press web page
Intersections in Language Planning and Policy Establishing Connections in Languages and Cultures( )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume encompasses the range of issues encountered by language scholars who teach and research in departments of languages and cultures within the higher education system, predominantly in Australia, but touching other universities worldwide. Related studies on language planning, methodology or pedagogy have focused on one or more of these same issues, but rarely on their totality. Intersections as a metaphor running discreetly through the essays in this volume, connects them all to a lived reality. The field of languages and cultures, as it is practised and reflected upon in Australian universities, is essentially an interdisciplinary and interconnecting space - one in which linguistic and disciplinary diversities meet and join forces, rather than collide or disperse along different pathways. The international and local studies featured here focus on language planning, new pedagogies and language reclamation and link to meeting points and commonalities. They show that language scholars are increasingly finding themselves on common ground as they tackle issues of policy and practice affecting their field, whether within their institutions, within the tertiary system, or within the framework of government policy.
The art of science : Nicolas Baudin's voyagers 1800-1804 by F. J Fornasiero( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the dawn of the 19th century, French navigator Nicolas Baudin led two lavishly equipped ships on a three-and-a-half-year voyage to the 'Southern Lands'. Inspired by the Enlightenment's hunger for knowledge, Baudin's expedition collected well in excess of 100,000 specimens, produced more than 1500 drawings and published the first complete chart of Australia. Baudin's artists, Charles-Alexandre Lesueur and Nicolas-Martin Petit, painted a series of remarkable portraits of Aboriginal people and produced some of the earliest European views of Australian fauna. These exquisite artworks reveal the sense of wonder this strange new world inspired

Portés par l'air du temps by John West-Sooby( )

1 edition published in 2010 in Undetermined and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originaire de l'île de Ré, Nicolas Baudin (1754-1803) est un fameux navigateur-explorateur français. Ce volume part à la quête des différentes étapes de son périple. Après un court passage dans l'armée navale à la fin des années 1770, Nicolas Baudin rejoignit son cousin Peltier, armateur à Nantes et ami de Beaumarchais, pour le compte duquel il navigua le long des côtes nord-américaines à l'époque troublée de la guerre d'Indépendance des États-Unis.Une rencontre, dans la ville du Cap, avec le jardinier de Joseph II lui donna l'occasion de travailler pour l'empereur comme transporteur puis récolteur d'objets d'histoire naturelle. Il devint, en 1792, officier de la marine autrichienne. Après la Révolution, il passa au service de la France, plus exactement à celui du Muséum d'histoire naturelle de Paris, alors dirigé par Antoine-Laurent de Jussieu, pour lequel il mena une expédition botanique aux Antilles. Ce voyage fut un immense succès au point qu'au retour de La Belle Angélique, le vaisseau du capitaine, Jussieu déclara : « le citoyen Baudin est un des voyageurs qui a le plus mérité des sciences naturelles ». Il put ainsi convaincre le premier consul, Bonaparte, et l'Institut de France de lui confier les rênes d'un voyage de découvertes aux Terres australes. Il quitta Le Havre en octobre 1800 aux commandes de deux vaisseaux de la République, Le Géographe et Le Naturaliste. Las, ce voyage fut un enfer pour Baudin : le rejet de son autorité par les officiers, l'indiscipline des savants à bord, de multiples dissensions, une santé défaillante, tout se ligua contre lui et sa réputation en fut complètement ternie.Baudin mourut en 1803, à l'Île-de-France, sur le chemin de retour du Géographe en France, sans jamais avoir eu l'occasion d'être confronté à ses détracteurs.Les contributions rassemblées dans ce volume portent sur les différentes étapes de la vie de Baudin. Elles permettent de mieux cerner la personnalité du capitaine, personnage atypique qui aimait à dire qu'il préférait voir son nom associé à une nouvelle espèce de mollusque qu'à une île inconnue. Naturaliste récolteur plutôt que savant naturaliste, Nicolas Baudin était un homme de talent, de volonté et de passion. Cet ouvrage entend lui rendre hommage
