Réflexions sur le centenaire de la Révolution mexicaine

Un siècle bigarré

Edited by Julián Durazo Herrmann

En cent ans, le Mexique est passé d’une guerre civile violente à un régime autoritaire, pour ensuite entamer une transition démocratique lente et difficile, souvent qualifiée d’incomplète. À l’occasion du centenaire de la Révolution mexicaine célébré en novembre 2010, ce livre propose un bilan de celle-ci. Il traite des effets sociaux et politiques immédiats de cette révolution, de la longue transition démocratique mexicaine ainsi que de l’influence de ces évènements dans le monde.

Régulation et évaluation des compétences en enseignement

Edited by Louise M. Bélair

Les décisions prises dans chaque activité d’enseignement à propos des niveaux de compétences à atteindre par les futurs enseignants et enseignantes participent à leur éventuelle accréditation dans le métier. D’où l’importance d’étudier la validité de ces décisions. Des chercheurs en éducation de l’Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières et de la Haute école pédagogique de Lausanne se sont rencontrés pour réfléchir à ce sujet. Les cours théoriques ne permettent-ils pas tout au plus de prédire un niveau de compétence ? Dans quelle mesure l’évaluation en situation de stage est-elle juste, considérant que le contexte (école, enseignant associé, etc.) varie ? Sur quels référents se baser pour mesurer les compétences quand peu de chercheurs s’entendent sur les caractéristiques du « bon enseignement » ? Les auteurs proposent des pistes de réflexion pour rationaliser les pratiques de régulation et d’évaluation des compétences professionnelles.

Résine et complexité matérielle

Traité sur la manœuvre de la résine en sculpture

Par son livre, l’artiste Laurent Pilon rend compte de l’immense potentiel de composition matérielle de la résine de polyester et de la variété des techniques qu’il est possible d’utiliser. La résine, comme le montre la centaine de photos accompagnant le texte, est en effet avide d’imprégnation, ouverte à une quasi infinie étendue de conversions matérielles.

Réussir le changement

Mobiliser et soutenir le personnel

Le taux d’échecs ou de demi-succès des changements organisationnels est encore aujourd’hui évalué à environ 70 %. Maintes fois documentée, cette situation est principalement attribuée au manque de considération du facteur humain, notamment en ce qui touche l’adhésion du personnel touché.Bien des écrits prodiguent toutes sortes de conseils sur la façon de prendre en compte cette dimension humaine. Cependant, aucun ne les intègre dans des outils pour accompagner concrètement les intervenants. C’est l’ambition de ce livre conçu pour les personnes qui ont à réaliser ou à vivre un changement organisationnel.Après avoir esquissé une synthèse des connaissances acquises sur le changement organisationnel, l’auteur met à la disposition du lecteur deux outils pour réussir le changement. Le premier est un carnet délimitant les tâches et responsabilités de chacun des intervenants: directeur de projet, employés, gestionnaires, hauts dirigeants, représentant syndical, spécialiste en communication et spécialiste en ressources humaines. Le deuxième prend la forme d’une fiche d’intervention pour chacune des composantes straté­giques de la gestion du changement: communication, culture organisationnelle, formation, gestion de l’équipe de projet, gestion de projet, gestion des risques, gestion de la transition, leadership et mobilisation des employés touchés.

RÈussite scolaire, Faillite Sociale

GÈnÈalogie mentale de la crise de l'Afrique Noire Francophone

Two volumes of school textbooks have notably led to self repulsion and attraction by the other peculiar to the black African elite. These are the collection put together by the missionary brothers Macaire and Grill: Mamadou et Bineta authored by AndrÈ Davesne alone or in collaboration with J. Gouin. To have an understanding of the kind of scholar produced by the foreign school in the colonies a century after, it is worthwhile retracing the itinerary, followed through readings by generation of pupils, to know the sources that fed their imaginationÖ. Out of tune with the universe of their birth, unable to efficiently concretize school teaching, but having certainly perceived that education and education alone is the new pedigree of distinction, school pupils have had to simulate the appropriation of fetishist models of knowledge without necessarily assimilating the spirit of the new civilization and much less taking the challenge to preserve self integrity redeemed through a complaisant dependence that spares from taking any action by fear of doing wrong or being called to order by the overbearing world. If not, how can one explain, in spite of the material and symbolic crises, that the elite since independence have not initiated a discursive strategy for another effective school system? Now, with aspiration or repugnance to discontinuity, the intentions are to rid Africa of the unhealthy residual French complexes in order to engage on the path of double acknowledgement and difference. This seems the most likely to restore trust amongst the peoples and to assure the endorsement of men worthy of being called such.

My Weapon Is My Pen

Selected writings by Raúl R. Salinas

Raúl Salinas is regarded as one of today's most important Chicano poets and human rights activists, but his passage to this place of distinction took him through four of the most brutal prisons in the country. His singular journey from individual alienation to rage to political resistance reflected the social movements occurring inside and outside of prison, making his story both personal and universal. This groundbreaking collection of Salinas' journalism and personal correspondence from his years of incarceration and following his release provides a unique perspective into his spiritual, intellectual, and political metamorphosis. The book also offers an insider's view of the prison rebellion movement and its relation to the civil rights and anti-war movements of the 1960s and 1970s. The numerous letters between Salinas and his family, friends, and potential allies illustrate his burgeoning political awareness of the cause and conditions of his and his comrades' incarceration and their link to the larger political and historical web of social relations between dominant and subaltern groups. These collected pieces, as well as two interviews with Salinas—one conducted upon his release from prison in 1972, the second more than two decades later—reveal to readers the transformation of Salinas from a street hipster to a man seeking to be a part of something larger than himself. Louis Mendoza has painstakingly compiled a body of work that is autobiographical, politically insurgent, and representative.

Urban Apartheid in Morocco

Janet L. Abu-Lughod

Making provocative use of the term apartheid," Janet Abu-Lughod argues that French colonial policies in Moroccan cities effectively segregated Moroccans from Europeans. Focusing on Rabat and drawing upon unpublished data from the 1971 census of Morocco, she documents the results of this segregation.

Rabbi Esriel Hildesheimer

and the Creation of a Modern Jewish Orthodoxy

Written by David Ellenson

The story of modern Orthodox Judaism is usually told only from the perspective of Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch. Ellenson’s work, a thorough examination of the life and work of one of Hirsch’s contemporaries, Rabbi Esriel Hildesheimer, reveals another important contributor to the creation of a modern Jewish Orthodoxy during the late 1800s. like Hirsch, Hildesheirmer felt the need to continue certain traditions while at the same time introducing certain innovations to meet the demands of a modern society. This original study of an Orthodox rabbinic leader shows how Hildesheirmer’s flexible and pragmatic approach to these problems continues to be relevant to modern Judaism. The way in which this book draws upon response literature for its comprehension of Hildesheimer makes it a distinctive work in modern Jewish historiography and sociology.

Rabbi Max Heller

Reformer, Zionist, Southerner, 1860-1929

This biography of a pioneering Zionist and leader of American Reform Judaism adds significantly to our understanding of American and southern Jewish history.

Max Heller was a man of both passionate conviction and inner contradiction. He sought to be at the center of current affairs, not as a spokesperson of centrist opinion, but as an agitator or mediator, constantly struggling to find an acceptable path as he confronted the major issues of the day--racism and Jewish emancipation in eastern Europe, nationalism and nativism, immigration and assimilation. Heller's life experience provides a distinct vantage point from which to view the complexity of race relations in New Orleans and the South and the confluence of cultures that molded his development as a leader. A Bohemian immigrant and one of the first U.S.-trained rabbis, Max Heller served for 40 years as spiritual leader of a Reform Jewish congregation in New Orleans--at that time the largest city in the South. Far more than a congregational rabbi, Heller assumed an activist role in local affairs, Reform Judaism, and the Zionist movement, maintaining positions often unpopular with his neighbors, congregants, and colleagues. His deep concern for social justice led him to question two basic assumptions that characterized his larger social milieu--segregation and Jewish assimilation. 

Heller, a consummate Progressive with clear vision and ideas substantially ahead of their time, led his congregation, his community, Reform Jewish colleagues, and Zionist sympathizers in a difficult era.

The Rabbi's Wife

The Rebbetzin in American Jewish Life

Shuly Schwartz

2006 National Jewish Book Award, Modern Jewish Thought

Long the object of curiosity, admiration, and gossip, rabbis' wives have rarely been viewed seriously as American Jewish religious and communal leaders. We know a great deal about the important role played by rabbis in building American Jewish life in this country, but not much about the role that their wives played. The Rabbi’s Wife redresses that imbalance by highlighting the unique contributions of rebbetzins to the development of American Jewry.

Tracing the careers of rebbetzins from the beginning of the twentieth century until the present, Shuly Rubin Schwartz chronicles the evolution of the role from a few individual rabbis' wives who emerged as leaders to a cohort who worked together on behalf of American Judaism. The Rabbi’s Wife reveals the ways these women succeeded in both building crucial leadership roles for themselves and becoming an important force in shaping Jewish life in America.
