Summary : The diversity of research in mathematics education has been addressed as both, a problem and a strength. When manifested through adherence to different intellectual roots and theoretical orientations, diversions constitute ‘refractions’ of mathematics education. The collection and analysis of empirical data in a study are by necessity refracted through the specific analytical lens employed, as well as the aim of the study itself. Refractions can also refer to looking at old phenomena through new lenses. The chapters in this book are refracted through philosophical, political, mathematical and personal lenses by distinguished authors in the field, addressing issues about the elusive experience of doing mathematics, purification of texts, refractions, mathematics and ethnomathematics, political messages in textbook tasks, mathematics education policy debate, the political in mathematics education research, philosophy and mathematics, meanings and representations, identity of mathematical modeling, and dilemmas in the teaching of calculus. An ancient Sanskrit adage states that Knowledge is something that grows when shared, but shrinks when hoarded. Academics engaged in the generation of new Knowledge are blessed with both the time and the freedom to engage in pursuits that allow for intellectual pleasure. As a phenomenon of the Zeitgeist many have succumbed to the increased corporatization of academic work, engaging in activities for monetary and self advancement purposes. Are there any real intellectuals left in academia, a là Adorno, Bourdieu, Chomsky, Foucault, among others? This Festschrift is dedicated to academics that don't bother with self promotion or aggrandizement of themselves or their ideas in simplistic terms.

Summary : Boys from Iowa and the Midwest grow tall, burly, and handsome in a way only Midwest boys can. Jay uses models (some professional, some amateur) to transport the viewer to the "Midwest" of innocence, purity, and the wholesomeness for which Middle America is known. It is the artist's desire to portray the Midwest as a unique place where one can find men doing farm chores during the day and going to a rave at night. A place that, with the Midwest stamp on it, gives you the boy next door who scores the touchdown, dates the prom queen (though is secretly in love with the tight end) and has a heart bigger than the whole state.

Summary : It's been said that for any event, there are an infinite number of possible outcomes. Our choices determine which outcome will follow, and therefore all possibilities that could happen do happen across countless alternate realities. In these divergent realms, known history is bent, like white light through a prism -- broken into a boundless spectrum of what-might-have-beens. But in those myriad universes, what might have been...is what actually happened. THE CHIMES AT MIDNIGHT: In a continuum where Spock died during childhood, an Andorian named Thelin became Captain Kirk's stalwart friend and first officer. But at the moment of Khan's final defeat, history takes an even stranger turn, and the emerging potential of Project Genesis is revealed as the galaxy's greatest hope...and its most ominous threat. A GUTTED WORLD: Terrorist Kira Nerys -- from a Bajor that was never liberated -- may hold the key to winning a war that has engulfed half the galaxy. But with the Romulans and the Klingons at each other's throats, and the Federation pulled into the conflict, even victory may not bring salvation. BRAVE NEW WORLD: Dr. Noonien Soong's dream has been realized: androids are now woven inextricably into the fabric of the Federation, revolutionizing Starfleet and transforming the quality of humanoid life. But when Soong's long-missing breakthrough creation, Data, mysteriously resurfaces, civilization reaches a crossroads that could lead to a bright new future, or to ruin.

Summary : The Present Book Takes A Fresh Look At Gender And Feminist Perspectives Through The Novels Of The Three Women Writers Across The Globe, Namely Toni Morrison, Michèle Roberts And Anita Desai To Formulate A Comparative Model On The Theory Of Desire. The Psychoanalytical Model Of Research Does Not Offer Any Homogeneity Of Points Of View, Rather A Dialogical Perspective To Suggest Refractions Of Feminist Desire. As The Book Analyses In Detail Family And Community, Mother-Daughter And Father-Daughter Relationships, Along With Marital Relationship, It Also Discusses The Politics Of Gender Representation In Afro-American, British And Indian Cultures. The Author Begins With The Comparative Analysis Of The Male Gaze In The Three Cultures To Discuss The Growth And Development Of Feminist Resistance To The Patriarchal Texts And Subtexts There, And Then Goes On To Discuss The Works Of The Writers And The Stances Taken By Them. Drawing On The Theories Of The French Feminists Along With Jung S Ideas On Sacred Marriage And Deconstruction And Judith Butler S Dream Of Symmetry , The Analysis Foregrounds A New Historicity Which Is Distinctly Non-Linear And Discursive In The Writings Of Toni Morrison, Michèle Roberts And Anita Desai. The Book Is Definitely A Major Contribution To Comparative Literature And Gender Studies. It Will Be Useful For Postgraduate Students And Scholars Interested In Such Fields Of Study.

Summary : From the moment it opened on the first of May in the Crystal Palace in Hyde Park, London, the Great Exhibition of 1851 was one of the defining events of the Victorian period. It stood not only as a visible symbol of British industrial and technological progress but as a figure for modernity--a figure that has often been thought to convey one coherent message and vision of culture and society. This volume examines the place occupied both materially and discursively by the Crystal Palace and other nineteenth- and twentieth-century exhibitions in the struggle to understand what it means to be modern. Initiated in part by a number of conferences held in 2001 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Crystal Palace, Victorian Prism provides new perspectives to historians, literary critics, art historians, and others interested in how a large glass building in a London park could refract meaning from Caracas to Calcutta. In its investigations of the ways of knowing and shaping the world that emerged during the planning and execution of this first "world's fair," Victorian Prism not only restores the multiplicity of experiences and other determining factors to our picture of the Great Exhibition; it makes reevaluation of the exhibition and its legacies the occasion for reevaluating modernity itself in its broadest sense--as the cultures, potentialities, and liabilities of the Enlightenment. With essays by a number of leading scholars in their fields, the collection as a whole focuses on how these exhibitions, in attempting to define the cultures of their day, incorporated a range of conflicting ideologies and agendas. In doing so, it offers a richer, more complex understanding of the experience of modernity than we have previously acknowledged. The volume also addresses the ways in which the cultural processes and tendencies brought together in these exhibitions have been refracted down to the present, thus informing and complicating our own relationship to both modernity and postmodernity.
