The Power Of Hybrids, Petros Panaou, Frixos Michaelides 2009 Boise State University

The Power Of Hybrids, Petros Panaou, Frixos Michaelides

Petros Panaou

Comic books, graphic novels, picture books, wordless picture books, illustrated books, and novels, as distinct genres abide to specific conventions. Word-image interaction in each genre is also guided by conventions and can only vary within a preset range. These identifiable conventions assist the interpretation of stories; the reader knows what to expect and how to receive it. We assert, however, that the postmodern era has brought the publication of works that break conventions, resist categorization, subvert reading expectations, and yet are highly successful in communicating powerful and engaging stories.


The Morrígan: A Trinity United, Olivia Blessing 2009 Sias International University, China

The Morrígan: A Trinity United, Olivia Blessing

Olivia L Blessing

The eeriness of Poe’s words has echoed down throughout the years to enthrall generation after generation with the verses’ sense of dismay, desperation, and fatality. Yet many have forgotten that, centuries earlier, the Celts were telling their own tales of shadowy ravens and tragic futures foretold. Many remain in the form of legends about their goddess of war—Morrígan. This goddess was a complex, triune character; comprehending the entirety of her power and importance in the Celtic myths requires an in-depth examination of her appearances in the old legends and the impact those tales had on the Celts.

Integrating Ctls Into Campus Strategic Planning Through An Effective Brainstorming Process, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe 2009 Eastern Kentucky University

Integrating Ctls Into Campus Strategic Planning Through An Effective Brainstorming Process, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe

Charlie Sweet

One way Centers for Teaching and Learning (CTLs) can position themselves at the epicenter of campus activity and insert themselves into strategic planning is by transforming group work through an effective brainstorming process that the authors have developed called Ideation Development for Excellence in Academic Learning (I.D.E.A.L.). The authors explain the evolution of the process in a learning community from best practices in brainstorming through a working model. The process has been effective with actual groups both on and off campus (vs. laboratory conditions). “Collaboration drives creativity because innovation always emerges from a series of sparks ...

Double Trouble: A Ryan/Lehrer Mystery, Jim Lacey 2009 Eastern Connecticut State University

Double Trouble: A Ryan/Lehrer Mystery, Jim Lacey

Jim Lacey

Double Trouble is an entertaining page-turner. The disappearance of a controversial history professor from his sailboat on the Connecticut shore initiates a web of intrigue that brings an attractive cast of characters to New York City and Washington, D.C. They include savvy and hapless academics, a popular administrator who is not what he claims to be, a smart and sexy law student, a middle school teacher with a shadowy past, and two precocious kids. What begins as a halfhearted exploration of a local mystery at a small state college in New England by amateur sleuths Jim Ryan and Rob ...
