The youngest doll by Rosario Ferré( Book )

A gentle maiden aunt who has been victimized for years unexpectedly retaliates through her talent for making life-sized dolls filled with honey. "The Youngest Doll," based on a family anecdote, is a stunning literary expression of Rosario Ferré's feminist and social concerns. It is the premier story in a collection that was originally published in Spanish in 1976 as Papeles de Pandora and is now translated into English by the author. The daughter of a former governor of Puerto Rico, Ferré portrays women loosening the constraints that have bound them to a patriarchal culture. Anger takes creati
Jean Franco keynote address : the second coming : religion as entertainment( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Video documentation of Jean Francos keynote address, The Second Coming: Religion as Entertainment, presented as a part of the 4th Encuentro of the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics, celebrated in July of 2003 in New York City, United States under the title Spectacles of Religiosities. Everywhere secularism is in retreat. Not only are fundamentalists on the rise but also many competing brands of spirituality are now widely disseminated through media, film, best selling fiction and television. While most orthodox religions have always used ritual and performance, telecommunications and televisual effects are transforming religion into religiosity. The return of religion has become an issue. Jean Franco is currently Professor Emeritus at Columbia University. She is the winner of the PEN 1996 award for lifetime contribution to the dissemination of Latin American literature in English and has been recognized by the Chilean and Venezuelan governments for advanced scholarship on Latin American literature in the United States

La vie industrielle en Bretagne Une mémoire à conserver by R Allain( )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Bretagne, dont on a longtemps, à juste titre, souligné le caractère rural, est aussi marquée depuis toujours par la présence d'une industrie non négligeable. Confinée d'abord à la campagne, elle a gagné les villes et la côte à partir du XIXe siècle, devenant un élément de plus en plus essentiel de l'économie bretonne. Mais la mémoire de cette industrialisation est en danger. Celle du bâti et des objets, qui pourtant a déjà bénéficié de nombreuses initiatives et dont on se préoccupe davantage aujourd'hui. Celle surtout des archives, multiples et nombreuses, souvent menacées de destruction par les aléas de la vie des entreprises, des associations ou des diverses organisations, et dont il apparaît indispensable d'envisager la conservation systématique dans le cadre souhaitable d'un centre spécifique sur le plan de la Bretagne, voire du grand Ouest. Cet ouvrage dirigé par Claude Geslin regroupe les textes issus du colloque "Archives et Mémoire de la vie industrielle en Bretagne. Les entreprises et les hommes", organisé à Fougères, haut lieu de l'industrialisation passée et récente de la Bretagne, par le Centre de recherches historiques sur les sociétés de l'Ouest (CRHISCO) de l'université Rennes 2 en décembre 1999
