Book Summary:

David Cecelski chronicles one of the most sustained and successful protests of the civil rights movement--the 1968-69 school boycott in Hyde County, North Carolina. For an entire year, the county's black citizens refused to send their children to school in protest of a desegregation plan that required closing two historically black schools in their remote coastal community. Parents and students held nonviolent protests daily for five months, marched twice on the state capitol in Raleigh, and drove the Ku Klux Klan out of the county in a massive gunfight. The threatened closing of Hyde County's black schools collided with a rich and vibrant educational heritage that had helped to sustain the black community since Reconstruction. As other southern school boards routinely closed black schools and displaced their educational leaders, Hyde County blacks began to fear that school desegregation was undermining--rather than enhancing--this legacy. This book, then, is the story of one county's extraordinary struggle for civil rights, but at the same time it explores the fight for civil rights in all of eastern North Carolina and the dismantling of black education throughout the South.

Book Summary:

Welcome to Port Alveridge. You'll notice something quite unusual about its inhabitants. Many of them are cats; and the ones that aren't cats, are dogs. Alveridgea and the Legend of the Lonely Dog is the irresistible tale of a little pup living in this cat-eat-dog world... Another time, another world. Port Alveridge, nestled on the edge of the sparkling Esparrow Sea, is a town divided. Cats and Dogs who once fought ancient battles now live as uneasy neighbours in segregated districts, with the town ruled for the greater good of Felines. Into this hotbed of simmering rivalry steps an orphan hound - Arthur Snout - deposited on the steps of the Alveridge County Orphanage. A small, unhoundish loner, Arthur is bullied by the other houndlings. And their nickname of 'Lonely Dog' soon sticks. Lonely Dog has a special gift, however, a gift for music that crosses boundaries, styles, and even species... Torn from his new rough-and-ready family: from Old Rolph - orphanage headmaster, father figure and secret music-lover; from a childhood sweetheart - Kelzie, whom Lonely Dog loves more than anything; from Bronson - biker gang leader who protects him - Lonely Dog flees for his life to the hinterlands, where he unwittingly becomes the star of an outlawed late-night pirate radio show. With Bronson jailed and shadowy offshore Feline powers marshalling for a war that threatens to destroy all Hound-kind, Lonely Dog must return to Port Alveridge and face his destiny. Can a shy, reluctant hero - armed with nothing but his 'Houndsound' - change the course of Alveridgean history?

Book Summary:

This original collection explores a number of significant texts produced in 1944 that define that year as a textual turning point when overlapping and diverging visions of a new world emerged. The questions posed at that moment, about capitalism, race, empire, nation and cultural modernity gave rise to debates that defined the global politics of their era and continue to delineate our own. Highlighting the goals, agendas and priorities that emerged for artists, intellectuals and politicians in 1944, Reading the Postwar Future rethinks the intellectual history of the 20th century and the way 1944's texts shaped the contours of the postwar world. This is essential reading for any student or scholar of the intellectual, political, economic and cultural history of the postwar era.

Book Summary:

Canada’s recent sesquicentennial celebrations were the latest in a long, steady progression of Canadian cultural memory projects. Unbecoming Nationalism investigates the power of commemorative performances in the production of nationalist narratives. Using “unbecoming” as a theoretical framework to unsettle or decolonize nationalist narratives, Helene Vosters examines an eclectic range of both state-sponsored social memory projects and counter-memorial projects to reveal and unravel the threads connecting reverential military commemoration, celebratory cultural nationalism, and white settler-colonial nationalism. Vosters brings readings of institutional, aesthetic, and activist performances of Canadian military commemoration, settler-colonial nationalism, and redress into conversation with literature that examines the relationship between memory, violence, and nationalism from the disciplinary arenas of performance studies, Canadian studies, critical race and Indigenous studies, memory studies, and queer and gender studies. In addition to using performance as a theoretical framework, Vosters uses performance to enact a philosophy of praxis and embodied theory.
