Teacher training at Cambridge : the initiatives of Oscar Browning and Elizabeth Hughes by Pam Hirsch( )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focuses on two educationalists, Oscar Browning (1837-1923) and Elizabeth Hughes (1852-1925) who were the principals of the two separate day training colleges for men and women at Cambridge. The early initiatives of these two leaders began the development of education studies at Cambridge University and, therefore, serve as test cases to examine the relationship between teacher training and the university. As their early programmes foreshadowed the work of the present-day Faculty of Education, a historical review of these Victorian educational experiments uncovers how the unstable rel
The cinema of the swimming pool by Christopher Brown( )

15 editions published in 2014 in English and German and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The swimming pool frequently appears in film not merely as a setting but as a dynamic site where social, political, cultural and aesthetic forces converge. What is it about this space that has so fascinated filmmakers and what kinds of cinematic investigations does it encourage? This collection features essays by an eclectic, international range of film researchers. Amongst the works analysed are classics such as The Cameraman (1928), The Philadelphia Story (1940) and La Piscine (1969); cult hits such as The Swimmer (1968) and Deep End (1970); and more recent representations of the pool in Water Lilies (2007), Sea Point Days (2009) and Ausente (2011). The pool is considered as a realm where artifice meets nature, where public meets private, where sexualities morph and blend; and as a space that reconfigures the relationship between architecture and narrative, in which themes of pollution, spectacle and reflexivity find unique expression. Approaching the swimming pool from a wide range of methodological perspectives, the essays in this collection stake a claim for the enduring significance of this exciting cinematic space
Practical visionaries : women, education, and social progress, 1790-1930 by Pam Hirsch( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vrouwelijke pedagogen uit de negentiende en begin twintigste eeuw worden hier voor het voetlicht gehaald.Uit recent onderzoek komt een meer genuanceerd beeld naar voor van deze Victoriaanse periode. Het beeld van een maatschappij waarin een strikte scheiding tussen privé-en openbaar leven bestond en waarbij de publieke sfeer volledig door mannen werd gedomineerd, is niet volledig. De vrouwen die in dit boek aan bod komen, hebben elk op hun manier grenzen verlegd. Hun aandacht ging vooral uit naar thema's zoals sociale rechtvaardigheid en volwaardig burgerschap. Zij meenden dit het best te kunnen realiseren via een gedegen onderwijs voor iedereen. Zo was er Barbara Bodichon die in 1854 een basisschooltje voor jongens en meisjes oprichtte dat zijn leerlingen uit alle sociale klassen recruteerde. Zij werd later medestichtster van één van de eerste hogescholen voor vrouwen in Groot-Brittannië
Barbara Leigh Smith Bodichon, 1827-1891 : feminist, artist and rebel by Pam Hirsch( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Barbara Leigh Smith Bodichon was the most unconventional and influential leader of the Victorian women's movement. She travelled unchaperoned - shocking respectable society - and she stayed faithful to her close friend George Eliot after her elopement with G. H. Lewes. Passionate and sometimes turbulent, she became briefly involved, like Eliot, with the publisher John Chapman, and later astonished her friends by marrying a French doctor from Algeria, Eugene Bodichon." "The illegitimate daughter of a radical MP, Barbara was one of a 'tabooed family' to relations, including her cousin, Florence Nightingale. If anything, this outsider status gave her strength. As leader of the 'Langham Place Group' she was at the heart of feminist agitation in England and led four great campaigns: for married women to be granted legal recognition, for women's right to work, to vote and to have access to education. In the 1850s she started the English Woman's Journal; in the 1860s she helped establish the Kensington Society, the first women's suffrage society. In the 1870s, with Emily Davies, she founded the first university college for women, Girton College, Cambridge." "Making use of unpublished journals and letters, Pam Hirsch has written a biography that is as lively and powerful as its subject, recreating the woman in all her moods, and placing her firmly in the context of women's struggle for equality."--BOOK JACKET
London on film by Pam Hirsch( )

13 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, a collection of essays by expert film researchers and lecturers, contributes to the growing body of scholarship on cinematic cities by looking at how one city-London-has been represented on film. In particular, the collection examines how films about London have responded to social, material and political change in the city, either by capturing and so influencing how we think about London, or by acting as catalysts (intentionally or otherwise) for public debate. Individual essays explore films ranging from the earliest actualities of the late nineteenth century to contemporary blockbusters. The book will appeal to film scholars and students, as well as to readers interested in the history of London and its changing image
