2Title:  Case studies and the dissemination of knowledge   
 Creator:  Damousi, Joy. | Lang, Birgit(Lecturer) | Sutton, Katie. 
 Publication:  Routledge, New York, London, 2015. 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references and index. "The case study has proved of enduring interest to all Western societies, particularly in relation to questions of subjectivity and the sexed self. This volume interrogates how case studies have been used by doctors, lawyers, psychoanalysts, and writers to communicate their findings both within the specialist circles of their academic disciplines, and beyond, to wider publics. At the same time, it questions how case studies have been taken up by a range of audiences to refute and dispute academic knowledge. As such, this book engages with case studies as sites of interdisciplinary negotiation, transnational exchange and influence, exploring the effects of forces such as war, migration, and internationalization. Case Studies and the Dissemination of Knowledge challenges the limits of disciplinary-based research in the humanities. The cases examined serve as a means of passage between disciplines, genres, and publics, from law to psychoanalysis, and from auto/biography to modernist fiction. Its chapters scrutinize the case study in order to sharpen understanding of the genre's dynamic role in the construction and dissemination of knowledge within and across disciplinary, temporal, and national boundaries. In doing so, they position the case study at the center of cultural and social understandings of the emergence of modern subjectivities"--

5Title:  Pedagogical sketchbook   
 Alt. Title:  Pèadagogisches Skizzenbuch. English   
 Creator:  Klee, Paul, 1879-1940 | Moholy-Nagy, Sibyl, 1903-1971 
 Notes:  Translation of: Pèadagogisches Skizzenbuch. "Originally published in German by Albert Langen Verlag Mèunchen in 1925..." -- Title page verso. "First published by Frederick A. Praeger, New York, in 1953" -- Title page verso. Accompanying folded sheet includes a description of the individual publication in the series and provides general information about the edition. Active at the Bauhaus between 1920 and 1931, teaching in the bookbinding, stained glass and mural-painting workshops, Paul Klee (1879-1940) brought his expressive blend of color and line to the school and, with the second volume in the 'Bauhausbèucher' series, beyond its walls. In his legendary 'Pedagogical Sketchbook', Paul Klee takes a theoretical approach to drawing using geometric shapes and lines. Evincing a desire to reunite artistic design and craft, and written in a tone that oscillates between the seeming objectivity of the diagram, the rhetoric of science and mathematics, and an abstract, quasi-mystical intuition, Klee's text expresses key aspects of the Bauhaus' pedagogy and guiding philosophies. And while Klee's method is deeply personal, in the context of the fundamentally multivocal Bauhaus, his individual approach to abstract form is typical in its idiosyncrasy. In this book, he presents his own theory about the relationships between line, shape, surface, and color in the visual space. In the present volume, the 1953 English translation by Sibyl Moholy-Nagy is combined with the design and physical qualities of the original German edition from 1925.

6Title:  Silent victories: the history and practice of public health in twentieth-century America   
 Creator:  Ward, John W. | Warren, Christian. 
 Publication:  Oxford University Press, Oxford, New York, 2007. 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references and index. Over the century, America's public health system grew dramatically, employing science and political authority in response to an increasing array of health problems. As the disease burden of the old scourges of infection, perinatal mortality, and dietary deficiencies began to life, public health's mandate expanded to take on new health threats, such as those resulting from a changing workplace, the rise of the automobile, and chronic and complex conditions caused by smoking, diet and other lifestyle and environmental factors.

7Title:  Just and lasting change: when communities own their futures   
 Creator:  Taylor, Daniel C. | Taylor, Carl E. 
 Publication:  Johns Hopkins University Press, in association with Future Generations, Baltimore, Ã2002. 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references and index. "Just and Lasting Change is a guide to transforming communities rapidly and in locally appropriate ways. Daniel Taylor-Ide and Carl Taylor have been present at key events and worked with key thinkers in dealing with the large forces of inequity, environmental change, and globalization for several decades. The approach they have synthesized builds on what has worked over the last century - and can now be implemented rapidly and cost-effectively in many parts of the world. It relies on a three-way partnership of "bottom-up" initiatives from the community level, "top-down" support from government agencies, and "outside-in" ingenuity and objectivity from experts. Based on both a diverse range of case studies - from the earliest attempts to promote social development in India a century ago to current efforts in Tibet, the Peruvian Andes, China, and the American Southwest - and engaging personal experiences, this book describes, step-by-step, how the SEED-SCALE model can be effectively implemented." "With contributions from leading international experts in community-based development and public health, Just and Lasting Change offers a hopeful description of how people have made a difference in diverse communities around the world and a practical, accessible handbook for those trying to improve the quality of life in underdeveloped communities everywhere."--Cover.
