When East Meets West

by Fran Blumberg, When East Meets West Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download When East Meets West books, The impetus for this book was a series of guest lectures for the “Issues in Applied Cognition” Institute sponsored by Fordham University’s Graduate School of Education May 26-27, 2005 and convened at Fordham University in New York City and May 30-June 7, 2005 at The Beijing Center for Language and Culture in Beijing. The book that has since emerged is designed to serve as a reference that brings together theoretical perspectives, research findings, and cultural practice in the examination of media from a primarily Sino-American vantage point, as commented upon by Chinese, U.S., and U.K. researchers and practitioners. The need for such a reference is prompted by China’s status as a nascent superpower and the ramifications of that emerging status for collaborative ventures and exchange of information with the U.S. Clearly, one flourishing context in which this “sharing” will occur is media. The goal of this volume is to provide the basis for consideration of the theoretical and practical issues that both China and the United States media will encounter as they move toward greater economic and political interdependence. This discussion is approached through the lens of media practice, research, and education and includes the voices of media market researchers, journalists and editors, developers of children’s educational programs, and academicians. Collectively, the chapters offer a select set of snapshots of how media in China and the U.S. look at one point in time. This moment is one that includes China preparing for the Beijing 2008 Olympics and the U.S. grappling with its involvement in an unpopular war. However, these images may capture what has been referred to in photojournalism as a “decisive moment” in the fledgling media interdependency between the U.S. and China.

Amy Tan

by Mary Ellen Snodgrass, Amy Tan Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Amy Tan books, In the mid–1980s, Amy Tan was a successful but unhappy corporate speechwriter. By the end of the decade, she was perched firmly atop the best-seller lists with The Joy Luck Club, with more popular novels to follow. Tan’s work—once pigeonholed as ethnic literature—resonates with universal themes that cross cultural and ideological boundaries, and prove wildly successful with readers of all stripes. Tender, sincere, complex, honest and uncompromising in its portrayal of Chinese culture and its affect on women, Amy Tan’s work earned her both praise and excoriation from critics, adoration from fans, and a place as one of America’s most notable modern writers. This reference work introduces and summarizes Amy Tan’s life, her body of literature, and her characters. The main text is comprised of entries covering characters, dates, historical figures and events, allusions, motifs and themes from her works. The entries combine critical insights with generous citations from primary and secondary sources. Each entry concludes with a selected bibliography. There is also a chronology of Tan’s family history and her life. Appendices provide an overlapping timeline of historical and fictional events in Tan’s work; a glossary of foreign terms found in her writing; and a list of related writing and research topics. An extensive bibliography and a comprehensive index accompany the text.
