"In Crossing Boundaries, Wolf shares his journeys to Ethiopia, Borneo Madagascar, Syria, and Myanmar. Each voyage is represented by exquisite photographs paired with personal, often humorous travel narratives. The author is a keen observer, captivated especially by individual forms of expression: the colors and patterns of clothing, the forms and features of architecture. Once home, Wolf incorporates - both subtly and not so subtly - the influence of his travels into his refined interior spaces in striking color combinations (the pinks and fuchsias and lavenders of Myanmar); skillful assemblages of artifacts (Ethiopian horn cups and chieftain's chairs); and graceful formal compositions (the symmetry of a Syrian garden court)."--BOOK JACKET.

This eclectic collection interrogates boundaries with reference to nineteenth and twentieth-century literature, performance, music and film from a diverse range of critical and theoretical perspectives. The authors probe the issue of negotiating boundaries in their innovative and imaginative investigations of science in Dickens, Eliot and Pater; narrative in Hawking and Weinberg; Bakhtin and the feminization of translation; lesbian romance by Jeanette Winterson; transitional females in migrant postcolonial fiction; pedagogy in South Africa; materiality and hypertext; the semiotic and money in Jay McInerney; the role of clichT in Beckett; music in Wim Wenders; the 'real' in fiction, theory and performance; creative and academic writing; politics and aesthetics. Original contributions by Terry Eagleton and Sally Shuttleworth support this volume's exciting challenge to established boundaries and help to make it a scintillating and thought-provoking read.

Societal problems that require collaboration across boundaries are growing, but the issues, tasks, challenges, and strategic practices of partnering across divides often fall outside the technical skill sets of would-be collaborators. This book brings together knowledge from many disciplines and firsthand experience from conservation and development projects in the Amazon to elucidate the travails but also the advantages of collaborating across boundaries.

Crossing Borders

This multidisciplinary book examines the diverse ways in which environmental disasters with compounding impacts are being governed as they traverse sovereign territories across rapidly urbanising societies in Asia and the Pacific.

This multidisciplinary book examines the diverse ways in which environmental disasters with compounding impacts are being governed as they traverse sovereign territories across rapidly urbanising societies in Asia and the Pacific. Combining theoretical advances with contextually rich studies, the book examines efforts to tackle the complexities of cross-border environmental governance. In an urban age in which disasters are not easily contained within neatly delineated jurisdictions, both in terms of their interconnected causalities and their cascading effects, governance structures and mechanisms are faced with major challenges related to cooperation, collaboration and information sharing. This book helps bridge the gap between theory and practice by offering fresh insights and contrasting explanations for variations in transboundary disaster governance regimes among urbanising populations in the Asia-Pacific.

Crossing Boundaries

This book brings in the focus on the borders between different contexts that need to be crossed, in the process of education.

This book brings in the focus on the borders between different contexts that need to be crossed, in the process of education. Despite the considerable efforts of various groups of researchers all over the World, it does not seem that traditional educational psychology has succeeded in illuminating the complex issues involved in the schoolfamily relationship. From a methodological perspective, there is no satisfactory explanation of the connection between representations and actual practice in educational contexts. Crossing Boundaries is an invitation to cultural psychology of educational processes to overcome the limits of existing educational psychology. Eemphasizing social locomotion and the dynamic processes, the book try to capture the ambiguous richness of the transit from one context to another, of the symbolic perspective that accompanies the dialogue between family and school, of practices regulating the interstitial space between these different social systems. How family and school fill, occupy, circulate, avoid or strategically use this space in between? What discourses and practices saturate this Border Zone and/or cross from one side to the other? Crossing Boundaries gathers contributions with the clear aim of documenting and analysing what happens at points of contact between family culture and scholastic/educational culture from the perspective of everyday life. This book is in itself an attempt to cross the border between the "theorizing on the borders" (and how “the outside world” and “the others” are perceived from a certain point of view) and “the practices" that characterize the school-home interaction.
