Sexuality and citizenship : metamorphosis in Elizabethan erotic verse by Jim Ellis( )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and held by 1,401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based for the most part on Ovid's Metamorphoses, epyllia retell stories of the dalliances of gods and mortals, most often concerning the transformation of beautiful youths. This short-lived genre flourished and died in England in the 1590s. Epyllia were produced mainly by and for the young men of the Inns of Court, where the ambitious came to study law and to sample the pleasures London had to offer. Jim Ellis provides detailed readings of fifteen examples of the epyllion, considering the poems in their cultural milieu and arguing that these myths of the transformations of young men are at the same time stories of sexual, social, and political metamorphoses." "Examining both the most famous (Shakespeare's Venus and Adonis and Marlowe's Hero and Leander) and some of the more obscure examples of the genre (Hiren, the Fair Greek and The Metamorphosis of Tobacco), Ellis moves from considering fantasies of selfhood, through erotic relations with others, to literary affiliation, political relations, and finally to international issues such as exploration, settlement, and trade. Offering a revisionist account of the genre of the epyllion, Ellis transforms theories of sexuality, literature, and politics of the Elizabethan age, making an erudite and intriguing contribution to the field."--Jacket

"Water Rites: Reimagining Water in the West brings together artists, activists, conservation groups, and scholars to illuminate the diverse issues surrounding water in Alberta. Examining the human right to water, the effects of resource extraction on Indigenous communities, oil spills, and protest movements, this vital collection explores key water-related issues with a focus on environmental and Indigenous perspectives. It shows how deeply water is tied to human life, not only as a necessary resource, but also as a source of artistic inspiration and as part of our collective consciousness."--
Calgary : city of animals by Jim Ellis( )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How have our interactions with animals shaped Calgary? What can we do to ensure that humans and animals in the city continue to co-exist, and even flourish together? This wide-ranging book explores the ways that animals inhabit our city, our lives and our imaginations. Essays from animal historians, wildlife specialists, artists and writers address key issues such as human-wildlife interactions, livestock in the city, and animal performers at the Calgary Stampede. Contributions from some of Calgary's iconic arts institutions, including One Yellow Rabbit Performance Theatre, Decidedly Jazz Danceworks, and the Glenbow Museum, demonstrate how animals continue to be a source of inspiration and exploration for fashion, art, dance and theatre. The full-colour volume is beautifully illustrated throughout with archival images, wildlife photography, documentary and production stills, and original artwork."--
Intertwined histories : plants in their social contexts( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How do we understand the boundaries of individual creatures? What are the systems of interdependency that bind all living creatures together? Plants were among thefirst to colonize the planet. They created the soil and the atmosphere that made life possible for animals. They are some of the largest and oldest life forms on Earth. In spite of their primacy, Western cultures have traditionally regarded plants as the lowest life forms, lacking mobility, sensation, and communication. But recent research argues that plants move and respond to their environment, communicate with each other, and form partnerships with other species. Art, poetry, and essays by cultural anthropologists, experimental plant biologists, philosophers, botanists and foresters expose the complex interactions of the vibrant living world around us and give us a lens through which we can explore our intertwined histories."--
