DIV Fictions of Art History, the most recent addition to the Clark Studies in the Visual Arts series, addresses art history’s complex relationships with fiction, poetry, and creative writing. Inspired by a 2010 conference, the volume examines art historians’ viewing practices and modes of writing. How, the contributors ask, are we to unravel the supposed facts of history from the fictions constructed in works of art? How do art historians employ or resist devices of fiction, and what are the effects of those choices on the reader? In styles by turns witty, elliptical, and plain-speaking, the essays in Fictions of Art History are fascinating and provocative critical interventions in art history. /div

Our Beautiful, Dry, and Distant Texts examines art historical writing as an expressive medium, capable of emotion and reflection - and therefore deserving of serious consideration for its own sake, as the testament of art history and of individual historians. Elkins asks such questions as: How do various art historical approaches represent works of art? What can they see, and what must they miss? And what insight does such writing offer us about ourselves? Drawing on analyses of texts by Derrida, Deleuze and other leading critics, as well as illustrations of artworks from various cultures, Elkins constructs an eloquent plea for circumspection in the entire endeavour of trying to force images into words and in the curious vocation of writing the history of art.

Critical citizenship is a multi-faceted, contemporary social, political and educational issue being discussed from a wide range of disciplines and points of view. Unusually, this collection brings together scholars in the fields of theology, art and design to ponder various levels and forms of education, including early childhood interventions, the rehabilitation of young offenders, and the impact of homosexuality in Malawi on citizenship and the links with theological teachings. The common ground that brought participants together was a mutual, collaborative search for the relevance for the African context of the notion of citizenship education, be it ‘critical’, ‘democratic’, ‘responsible’, ‘active’ or preferably all of these forms or aspects of citizenship brought together.

Over the past forty years, Finnish artist and technology pioneer Erkki Kurenniemi (b. 1941) has been a composer of electronic music, experimental filmmaker, computer animator, roboticist, inventor, and futurologist. Kurenniemi is a hybrid -- a scientist-humanist-artist. Relatively unknown outside Nordic countries until his 2012 Documenta 13 exhibition, "In 2048," Kurenniemi may at last be achieving international recognition. This book offers an excavation, a critical mapping, and an elaboration of Kurenniemi's multiplicities. The contributors describe Kurenniemi's enthusiastic, and rather obsessive, recording of everyday life and how this archiving was part of his process; his exploratory artistic practice, with productive failure an inherent part of his method; his relationship to scientific and technological developments in media culture; and his work in electronic and digital music, including his development of automated composition systems and his "video-organ," DIMI-O. A "Visual Archive," a section of interviews with the artist, and a selection of his original writings (translated and published for the first time) further document Kurenniemi's achievements. But the book is not just about one artist in his time; it is about emerging media arts, interfaces, and archival fever in creative practices, read through the lens of Kurenniemi.

New Ideas in the Writing Arts has come about because recent changes taking place in educational settings have influenced the ways in which learners and teachers are exploring Creative Writing. The worldwide growth of Creative Writing as a formal subject of study in universities and colleges has generated explorations that appear now to be at the tip of an even greater range of explorations that promise to be undertaken in coming years. When titling this book, the intention was to say that we should consider what might currently be new, what might be explored, what might be introduced to a writer who has not thought of investigating certain aspects of Creative Writing or undertaking Creative Writing in a certain way. Such freshness can often produce a development in a writer’s own work. Our 21st century development of research in Creative Writing undertaken by creative writers through writing practice and through a critical engagement with Creative Writing that begins in writing practice is already unearthing new ways of thinking about Creative Writing and new ways of undertaking it too. New Ideas in the Writing Arts presents explorations of Creative Writing fresh from explorers of Creative Writing who have incorporated into their work ideas discovered in creative practice and ideas explored critically because of creative practice. Readers will discover in the tone and trajectory of the chapters a serious engagement with how to determine current knowledge, how to confirm or challenge that knowledge, and broadly how to progress our knowledge of Creative Writing. Practical considerations prevail, and there is a clear sense in which Creative Writing is an activity, not a static thing to be examined in a fixed state and discussed as a completed object. Rather, Creative Writing in this book is a range of events and their results, a human activity that draws on many individual actions, cultural and historical contexts, and, in its undertaking, presents evidence that reflects on the knowledge and belief that informs and produces it.

Just two weeks before his death in January 1999, George L. Mosse, one of this century's great historians, finished writing his memoir, a fascinating and fluent account of a remarkable life that spanned three continents and many of the major events of the twentieth century. Writing about the events of his life through a historian's lens, Mosse gives us a personal history of our century. This is a story told with the clarity, passion, and verve that entranced thousands of Mosse's students and that countless readers have found, and will continue co find, in his many scholarly books. Confronting History describes Mosse's opulent childhood in Weimar Berlin; his exile in Parts and England, including boarding school and study at Cambridge University; his second exile in the U.S. at Haverford, Harvard, Iowa, and Wisconsin; and his extended stays in London and Jerusalem. Mosse also deals with matters of personal identity. He discusses being a Jew and his attachment to Israel and Zionism. He addresses has gayness, his coming out, and his growing scholarly interest in issues of sexuality. This touching memoir, sometimes harrowing, often humorous, is guided in part by Mosse's belief that "what man is, only history tells, " and by his constant themes of the fate of liberalism, the defining events that can bring about the generational political awakenings of youth (from the anti-fascism struggles of the 1930s to the campus anti-war movement of the 1960s, the meanings of masculinity and racial and sexual stereotypes, the enigma of exile, and -- most of all -- the importance of finding one's self through the pursuit of truth, and through an honest and unflinching analysis of one's place in thecontext of his times.(.
