Get a queer perspective on communication theory! Queer Theory and Communication: From Disciplining Queers to Queering the Discipline(s) is a conversation starter, sparking smart talk about sexuality in the communication discipline and beyond. Edited by members of “The San Francisco Radical Trio,” the book integrates current queer theory, research, and interventions to create a critical lens with which to view the damaging effects of heteronormativity on personal, social, and cultural levels, and to see the possibilities for change through social and cultural transformation. Queer Theory and Communication represents a commitment to positive social change by imagining different social realities and sharing ideas, passions, and lived experiences. As the communication discipline begins to recognize queer theory as a vital and viable intellectual movement equal to that of Gay and Lesbian studies, the opportunity is here to take current queer scholarship beyond conference papers and presentations. Queer Theory and Communication has five objectives: 1) to integrate and disseminate current queer scholarship to a larger audience-academic and nonacademic; 2) to examine the potential implications of queer theory in human communication theory and research in a variety of contexts; 3) to stimulate dialogue among queer scholars; 4) to set a preliminary research agenda; and 5) to explore the implications of the scholarship in cultural politics and personal empowerment and transformation. Queer Theory and Communication boasts an esteemed panel of academics, artists, activists, editors, and essayists. Contributors include: John Nguyet Erni, editor of Asian Media Studies and Research & Analysis Program Board member for GLAAD Joshua Gamson, author of Freaks Talk Back: Tabloid Talk Shows and Sexual Nonconformity Sally Miller Gerahart, author, activist, and actress Judith Halberstam, author of Female Masculinity David M. Halperin, author of How to Do the History of Homosexuality E. Patrick Johnson, editor of Black Queer Studies Kevin Kumashiro, author of Troubling Education: Queer Activism and Antioppressive Pedagogy Thomas Nakayama, co-editor of Whiteness: The Communication of Social Identity A. Susan Owen, author of Bad Girls: Cultural Politics and Media Representations of Transgressive Women William F. Pinar, author of Autobiography, Politics, and Sexuality, and editor of Queer Theory in Education Ralph Smith, co-author of Progay/antigay: The Rhetorical War over Sexuality Queer Theory and Communication: From Disciplining Queers to Queering the Discipline(s) is an essential addition to the critical consciousness of anyone involved in communication, media studies, cultural studies, gender studies, and the study of human sexuality, whether in the classroom, the boardroom, or the bedroom.

This volume brings together a collection of papers on the general theoretical and methodological problems in the historiography of semiotics. It is not a history in the conventional sense, even though the main periods and figures in the development of semiotics are given due prominence. Nevertheless, it should offer the reader stimulation and food for thought in the critical approach to even the least questioned facts of semiotic history and the emphasis given to hitherto neglected problems and persons.

The award-winning authors, an academic and a professional writer, write engagingly, strive to link theory and research with fundamental concepts, and to enliven the exposition with intriguing case studies, useful interpersonal skills and stimulating examples. Tubbs and Moss show a true understanding and sensitivity to diversity, a reflection of their professional interests in gender and cultural issues. Stewart Tubbs is the Darrell S. Cooper Professor of Leadership in the School of Business at Eastern Michigan University. Sylvia Moss received the Whiting Writer's Award for her poetry and has twice been a Yaddo Fellow.

Singin' in the Rain

Kulturgeschichte eines Hollywood-Musical-Klassikers

Das Hollywoodmusical 'Singin' in the Rain', das Anfang der 1950er-Jahre von Betty Comden, Adolph Green und Roger Edens im Auftrag von Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) konzipiert und 1952 unter der Regie von Stanley Donen und Gene Kelly, mit Kelly in der Hauptrolle produziert wurde, gilt heute als Klassiker, ja als einer der künstlerisch und kommerziell erfolgreichsten und paradigmatischen Vertreter seines Genres. Das Musical basiert auf musikalischem Material, das zum großen Teil - genauso wie der durchschlagende Titelsong - bereits eine Vorgeschichte sowohl auf im Film als auch in anderen medialen Formen der populären Kultur besaß. In der Bühnenversion, welche 1983 am Londoner West End ihre Erstproduktion hatte, erlebt 'Singin' in the Rain' eine bis heute rege Aufführungs- und Rezeptionsgeschichte. Das intermediale Miteinander von Songs, Kinofilm und Bühnenwerk macht 'Singin' in the Rain' mit seinen verschiedenen Werkkomplexen zu einem Schlüsselthema für eine interdisziplinäre Betrachtung des Musicals der Mitte des 20. Jahrhunderts.

Dieses richtungsweisende Lehrbuch für die Anwendung der Mathematik in anderen Wissenschaftszweigen gibt eine Einführung in die Theorie der gewöhnlichen Differentialgleichungen. Fortran und APL-Programme geben den Studenten die Möglichkeit, verschiedene numerische Näherungsverfahren an ihrem PC selbst durchzurechnen. Aus den Besprechungen: "Die Darstellung ist überall mathematisch streng und zudem ungemein anregend. Abgesehen von manchen historischen Bemerkungen ... tragen dazu die vielen mit ausführlichem Hintergrund sehr eingehend entwickelten praktischen Anwendungen bei. ... Besondere Aufmerksamkeit wird der physikalisch und technisch so wichtigen Frage nach Stabilität von Lösungen eines Systems von Differentialgleichungen gewidmet. Das Buch ist wegen seiner geringen Voraussetzungen und vorzüglichen Didaktik schon für alle Studenten des 3. Semesters geeignet; seine eminent praktische Haltung empfiehlt es aber auch für alle Physiker, die mit Differentialgleichungen und ihren Anwendungen umzugehen haben." #Physikalische Blätter#

Praise for Beebe, Beebe, and Ivy's Communication: Principles for a Lifetime 2nd Edition: 'This book has it all-mention of culture, of technology, skills orientation, good learning tools, and appropriate reading level.' - Leonard Assante, Volunteer State Community College. 'The most unique design incorporated into this textbook is the pentagon model or five fundamental principles. The model introduces and then reinforces the precepts upon which effective/competent communication is built. Finally, some ethical or moral standards for students to contemplate in the current world order.' -Debra Sue Wyatt, South Texas Community College. 'The writing is clear and concise an yet still involves the student's imagination by using interesting current examples and posing ethical issues for consideration.' - Annette Folwell, University of Idaho Excitement for the 1st Edition. 'I like the approach of the five principles of communication to organize some of the fundamentals of communication. They organize fundamentals such as nonverbal, language, perception and the self in a manner I've not seen in other introductory communication texts...The combination of areas under each principle helps to a reading this text. Its conversational tone and use of contemporary examples make it approachable to students.' - Timothy P Mottet, Southwest Texas State University. 'This is an impressive text. The authors have done a good job of condensing the vast amount of information related to communication studies into a manageable and cohesive text.' -Phil Hoke, The University of Texas at San Antonio. 'The five basic principles give the book cohesiveness. Each chapter is clearly related to the overriding principles of effective communication stressed in the text. The more I read, the more I appreciated the effectiveness of this organizational strategy.' -Carol L Hunter, Brookdale Community College.
