              Wireless Morse code began a new age of communications, magically sending invisible waves through the ether received at some distant place. Among the first universities to experiment in this unknown world was The Ohio State University, which became one of the first educational bro...adcast stations and a think tank for the future of public service radio-pioneering radio audience research and serving as an innovative school of the air. Sparks Flew is a rich story of creative, tenacious men and women working in a new medium that commercial enterprises soon dominated. At any moment in time, educational broadcasting could have failed if not for a few land-grant institutions like The Ohio State University and prominent stations like WOSU that supported the medium. Sparks Flew is the untold story, a century in the making, of one institution and one educational station that represent the roots of today's public broadcasting system.

              Fragments for a History of a Vanishing Humanism (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Fragments for a History of a Vanishing Humanism brings together scholars working in prehistoric, classical, medieval, and early modern studies who are developing, from longer and slower historical perspectives, critical post/humanisms that explore: 1) the significance (historical..., sociocultural, psychic, etc.) of human expression and affectivity; 2) the impact of technology and new sciences on what it means to be a human self; 3) the importance of art and literature in defining and enacting human selves; 4) the importance of history in defining the human; 5) the artistic plasticity of the human; 6) the question of a human collectivity--what is the value, and peril, of being human or being post/human together?; and finally, 7) the constructive, and destructive, relations (aesthetic, historical, and philosophical) of the human to the nonhuman. This volume, edited by Myra Seaman and Eileen A. Joy, insists on the always provisional and contingent formations of the human, and of various humanisms, over time, while also aiming to demonstrate the different ways these formations emerge (and also disappear) in different times and places, from the most ancient past to the most contemporary present. The essays are offered as fragments because the authors do not believe there can ever be a total history of either the human or the post/human as they play themselves out in differing historical contexts. At the same time, the volume as a whole argues that defining what the human (or post/human ) is has always been an ongoing, never finished cultural project. Myra Seaman is Professor of English at the College of Charleston. Eileen A. Joy is the Founding Director of Punctum Books and the Lead Ingenitor of the BABEL Working Group, and is based in Santa Barbara, California.

              Suture and Narrative: Deep Intersubjectivity in Fiction and Filmby George Butte offers a new phenomenological understanding of how fiction and film narratives use particular techniques to create and represent the experience of community. Butte turns to the concept of suture from ...Lacanian film theory and to the work of Merleau-Ponty to contribute a deeper and broader approach to intersubjectivity for the field of narrative theory.Butte s approach allows for narratives that represent insight as well as blindness, love, and loss, locating these connections and disconnections in narratological techniques that capture the crisscrossing of perspectives, such as those in fiction s free indirect discourse and in the oblique angle of film s shot/reverse shot convention. Butte studies the implications of this chiasmus in the novels and film adaptations of later Henry James works, Barrie s Peter Pan tales and film adaptations, and the filmsSilence of the LambsandNothing But a Man. Suture s story in the twentieth century, according to Butte, is a story of the loss of immediacy and community. Yet in concluding this, Butte finds optimism in the Coen brothers Raising Arizonaas well as inWhy Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?by Jeanette Winterson and Marc Webb s film(500) Days of Summer.
