A Quarter-Century of Normalization and Social Role Valorization

Evolution and Impact

Edited by Robert J. Flynn, Raymond A. Lemay

During the late 1960s, Normalization and Social Role Valorization (SRV) enabled the widespread emergence of community residential options and then provided the philosophical climate within which educational integration, supported employment, and community participation were able to take firm root. This book is unique in tracing the evolution and impact of Normalization and SRV over the last quarter-century, with many of the chapter authors personally involved in a still-evolving international movement.

The Quarters and the Fields

Slave Families in the Non-Cotton South

Damian Alan Pargas

The Quarters and the Fields offers a unique approach to the examination of slavery. Rather than focusing on slave work and family life on cotton plantations, Damian Pargas compares the practice of slavery among the other major agricultural cultures in the nineteenth-century South: tobacco, mixed grain, rice, and sugar cane. He reveals how the demands of different types of masters and crops influenced work patterns and habits, which in turn shaped slaves' family life.

By presenting a broader view of the complex forces that shaped enslaved people's family lives, not only from outside but also from within, this book takes an inclusive approach to the slave agency debate. A comparative study that examines the importance of time and place for slave families, The Quarters and the Fields provides a means for understanding them as they truly were: dynamic social units that were formed and existed under different circumstances across time and space.

The Quay Brothers

Into a Metaphysical Playroom

Suzanne Buchan

This work is the first thorough analysis of the creative oeuvre of the Quay Brothers. Known for their animation shorts that rely on puppetry, miniatures, and stop-motion techniques, their fiercely idiosyncratic films are fertile fields for Suzanne Buchan's engaging descriptions and provocative insights into the Quays' art-and into the art of independent puppet animation.

Buchan's aesthetic investigation stems from extensive access to the Quay Brothers' artistic practices and work, which spans animation and live-action film, stage design and illustration. She also draws on a long acquaintance with them and on interviews with collaborators essential to their productions, as well as archival sources. Discussions of their films' literary origins, space, puppets, montage, and the often-overlooked world of sound and music in animation shed new light on the expressive world that the Quay Brothers generate out of their materials to create the poetic alchemy of their films.

At once a biography of the Quays' artistic trajectory and a detailed examination of one of their best-known films, Street of Crocodiles, this book goes further and provides interdisciplinary methodologies and tools for the analysis of animation.

Que faisons-nous de notre temps?

Vingt-quatre heures dans la vie des Québécois – Comparaisons internationales

Que faisons-nous de notre temps ? Force est de constater que nous peinons à évaluer le temps consacré à nos diverses activités quotidiennes. Si nous surestimons notre temps de travail, nous sous-estimons celui consacré à la télévision. Nous n’osons pas dire que nous lisons de moins en moins. Nous surestimons le temps que nous consacrons aux tâches domestiques, mais sous-estimons celui qu’y consacre notre partenaire… Bref, nos vingt-quatre heures de la journée gonflent ou rétrécissent au gré de nos perceptions. Dans un langage accessible et néanmoins rigoureux, tout en respectant les principes méthodologiques usuels, l’auteur de cet ouvrage présente un portrait de ce que font réellement les Québécois des vingt-quatre heures de leur journée ou des sept jours de leur semaine. Pour ce faire, il s’appuie sur cinq enquêtes canadiennes réalisées entre 1986 et 2010. Il propose également des comparaisons avec la France et les États-Unis basées sur des données du même type afin de relativiser certaines tendances. La génération actuelle travaille-t-elle davantage que la précédente ? Quelle est la véritable ampleur du stress temporel dont un grand nombre se dit affecté et qui en sont les plus touchés ? Les parents consacrent-ils plus de temps ou moins de temps à leurs enfants ? Où en sommes-nous réellement en matière de partage des tâches domestiques ? La civilisation du loisir serait-elle un mythe ? Le temps consacré à la culture est-il oui ou non en diminution ? Les nouvelles technologies ont-elles bouleversé la structure des temps sociaux ? L’auteur répond à toutes ces questions et à bien d’autres encore.

The Queen and I

A Story of Dispossessions and Reconnections in Hawai'i

Sydney L. Iaukea

In this exposé Sydney L. Iaukea ties personal memories to newly procured political information about Hawai`i’s crucial Territorial era. Spurred by questions surrounding intergenerational property disputes in her immediate family, she delves into Hawai`i’s historical archives. There she discovers the central role played by her great-great-grandfather in the politics of late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century Hawai`i—in particular, Curtis P. Iaukea’s trusted position with the Hawaiian Kingdom’s last ruling monarch, Queen Lili`uokalani. As Iaukea charts her ancestor’s efforts to defend a culture under siege, she reveals astonishing legal and legislative maneuvers that show us how capitalism reshaped cultural relationships. She finds resonant parallels and connections between her own upbringing in Maui’s housing projects, her family’s penchant for hiding property, and the Hawaiian peoples’ loss of their country and lands.

Queen Elizabeth and the Making of Policy, 1572-1588

Wallace T. MacCaffrey

Acclaimed for their dramatic rendering of the personalities and forces that shaped Elizabethan politics, Wallace T. MacCaffrey's three volumes thoroughly chronicle the Queen's decision making throughout her reign in a way that combines pleasurable reading with subtle analysis. Together in paperback for the first time, these books will find a wide readership among those interested in debunking Elizabeth's many mythic images and in following the steps of Elizabethan policy-makers as they grapple with the most crucial political problems of their day.

To determine how policy evolved from the interaction between Elizabeth and her councillors from 1572 to the Armada in 1588, MacCaffrey begins with domestic affairs, focusing on the central problem of religious dissent, both Protestant and Catholic. Turning to foreign affairs, he then examines England's external relations with the Continental monarchies and Scotland. Lastly, he analyzes the two focuses of decision making, the Court and Parliament.

Originally published in 1981.
